Niners sign McCaffrey, cheap this year, 12mil next year.

Surprised a bit by this as it takes away the role Deebo plays very very well. 

I don't think it will hurt Deebo, they don't want him in the backfield too much especially until the playoffs. What they can do is line up McCaffrey and Deebo both in the backfield or motioning to the backfield and come up with a heap of route combinations.

I'm more surprised they were willing to give up so much draft capital for this last desperate Jimmy G year when you have to think they need picks to support Lance in future years.

Lions look like they have scored, get a really bad spot the 1yrd when it at worst should be inches, then fumble on the very next play. Why the [censored] with three time outs down by 4 do you not challenge it or at least take the time to ensure it’s not a score.

Great fit, but if they think they are one RB piece away from a Superbowl team they are kidding themselves.

For me the niners are a funny team, they have most of the parts, except for the QB, they hope that is Lance, but he is injured and Jimmy G is solid without being spectacular. The problem is when they run into the better Defensive teams ie chiefs, bills etc they have to score enough to match their opponents offence. Even with a great defence teams like the chiefs, Bills are going to put 20+ points on you min.

Niners can get better as they get some players back, don’t think they can beat the bills or chiefs who I think win the SB this year.

the most interesting thing for me is hitting that window when you have the young players on the rookie contracts to compliment the established stars. Next two years they will have some players looking for a payday.

Dolphins, Pats, Titans

Just when the Jets were becoming fun we lose our #1 offensive weapon Hall and AVT - Davis injured too but not sure whether he's ok to suit up this week or not.

Zach looked terrible against the Broncos but they do have a formidable defence - I'm expecting similar this week against Belichick on the rebound after losing to the Bears at home (great game!) Belichick has made an art form of making young QBs (and young Jets QBs) look stupid and I expect this to continue on Monday

Has anyone ever gone pointless in the tipping comp? I think I'm giving it a big shake this season.

I once only had 1 point after 11 weeks but ended up having the 3rd most points by seasons end

From memory a couple went 10 weeks without scoring points and both had won the comp the previous year (the winners curse?)

Well another game where our D give up lots of big broken plays, miss a billion tackles and give up dumb penalties.

Stafford in the second half is 3/11.

Still no run game, McVay has no idea how to win when he can’t pass heavy. 
We are on the verge of missing playoffs.

Ive somehow missed half a season of tips! Ill jump back in next week...

Amazing triple crown of TDs for Christian McCaffrey this morning, rushing, receiving AND passing TD. First time anyone's done it since LaDainian Tomlinson all the way back in 2005. If he can stay fit, and given he's only been learning the playbook for just over a week, will be well worth the investment.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
