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.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
