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.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
