Did Aaron Rodgers REALLY send that deep ball into the Saints
hands to show the Packers his receivers aren’t fast enough?
Not for me to say, but good question. What would a week 1
recap be without some Aaron Rodgers drama? Jokes aside, this interception
wasn’t the only instance Rodgers looked uninitiated this weekend. He went
15/28, totaling 133 YDs… plus 2 INTs and 1 sack. Per ESPN, his total QBR for Sunday was
13.4… the lowest of any active QB in Week 1. His passer rating per
PredictionStrike was a stunning 36.8, also the worst of any at the position,
and the player with the second worse rating scored nearly DOUBLE, Trevor Lawrence (+.22%,
$8.30/share) at 70.1.
Winston (+20%, $7.09/share) and the Saints
Even if I’m your wildest dreams you thought Jameis would be
a Pro Bowl QB this season, there’s no world in which you thought he would throw
5 TDs, 0 INTs, go 14/20, lock in the 2nd best QBR of the day with a 92.5,
the third best passer rating of the day with 130.8, and end the day with his
stock up +20%. You just didn’t.
I want to remind myself, and you if you’re half as excited
as I am, that it’s Week 1. That this is still the guy who went 30 for 30 (and
not the ESPN kind) not too long ago. That this is the guy who did that STILL
weird thing where he ate the “W” off his hands. But… the Saints
Bay just as much as Green Bay lost to them. In the past, the Saints strong
defense and short passing attack allowed them to rack up regular season wins
without taking too many risks. But with less risks comes less rewards. Through
1 game, Sean Payton took advantage of what the best version of Jameis provides
him and opened up the offense. The threat of the long game alone prevented the
Packers from shortening the field for the Saints, like most teams would have
done to them in the past. Payton took his genius play-calling and game-planning,
mixed into a Jameis-led offense, and managed to tune down the overly aggressive
aspects of the style we saw employed in Tampa Bay two years back. After all, as
PFF points out, while Winston’s 8.9 YDs avg depth of target was higher than
all but two games Brees had last season, it was also 1.5 YDs lower than any season
of Winston’s career thus far. What might have seemed like a questionable pair
when Winston signed on as a backup last year might have turned into a perfectly
imperfect marriage between QB and coach.
What’s the Saints ceiling if Jameis can continue to be even
a fraction of the player he was on Sunday? They probably won’t be able to touch
Tampa Bay for the division title, but could they compete for a wild card berth?
Callaway (-15%, $1.08/share) looks like he’ll plug the Michael Thomas ($10.27/share)
hole in the offense just fine, and eventually… they’ll add Michael Thomas back
to the equation. Besides, they saw super encouraging performances from Juwan Johnson
(+49%, $1.49/share), Tre’Quan
Smith (+36%, $0.43/share), Deonte Harris
(+25%, $0.52/share), and so many more. This team could look a lot better than
we originally gave them credit for.
Are the Eagles NFC contenders?
We can save the convo about whether or not the Cowboys
will crap the bed again. We know their subpar defense can’t match their high-powered
offense, just like we know WFT’s subpar offense can’t match their high-powered
defense. So fast forward to the meat of this convo - will the Eagles
leapfrog both of them and find a way to win the division?
That's all we got. Thanks for joining us and for reading all the way to the bottom. Hope you made some money this week and had fun doing it. And as usual... DOWNLOAD THE APP at the link below!
