    Arsenal 2019-2020 - Because Thursday Games are the Best Way to Start the Weekend

    It’s a massive indictment of Raul and Edu if they don’t sack him in the next few days.

    Arsenal 2019-2020 - Because Thursday Games are the Best Way to Start the Weekend

    This is the kind of half ass performance typical of a group of players that no longer believe in an embattled manager. You go through the motions and you keep the ball, but you lack that little bit of energy, sharpness, and desire that is necessary to actually do anything threatening with the ball.

    Arsenal 2019-2020 - Because Thursday Games are the Best Way to Start the Weekend

    Emery stripped Xhaka of the captaincy. One of the only things he has done correctly since arriving. Lots of rumors that Xhaka will be sold in January. Lets hope so.

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    I agree with you. I just hope it isn't a harbinger of things to come and that they aren't giving up on making some other personnel packages work that would allow them to vary the offense more, especially with heavier personnel. Those kinds of packages haven't been very effective so far this...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    In past games they've certainly tried to mix it up more, throwing in a fair number of two TE and two RB sets. Maybe they've come to a decision that its no longer worth trying to vary personnel because the rest of their skill positions players just stink and they can't run the ball anyway. But...

    You need two RBs on the field for that.

    I agree completely (as I noted, the hurry up was a big contributing factor) but that is far from the whole story here. They played exclusively 11 personnel with the same trio of wideouts throughout the first half. And in some of the goal line sequences on few drives they slowed down the tempo...

    One of the bizarre things about this game on offense is that we had almost no personnel variation at all other than at the RB spot. It was 11 personnel the entire game. Sanu, Watson, and Jules played every snap while Dorsett played every snap except one in which Meyers came into the game. No...

    We got outplayed and outcoached by a good team coming off a bye playing at home. Give credit to them but I don't think it portends much of anything regarding how the rest of the season will go. I'm happy that we got to see this team in the regular season for the first time rather than the...

    Wk. 9 at Ravens: We’re on to Baltimore

    Since they went up 17-0, we've run 45 plays and they've run 10.

    Looks to me like it should be on the six inch line. If so, I want to see a Brady sneak.

    Red zone offense is just a huge struggle with no running game and no Gronk.

    Wk. 9 at Ravens: We’re on to Baltimore

    This is a tough scheme to play against for the first time, even if you've watched a lot of film. Whatever happens tonight happens. I'm just happy that we're not playing them for the first time in the playoffs.

    Ravens are looking like a team coming off a bye that had a bunch of special stuff dialed up for the Patriots. Lets see how we respond.

    The Special Ones - Managers in the Game

    I think Zidane is far too low. Winning the Champions League three times in a row is an amazing accomplishment. He may not be a great tactical innovator but he certainly was effective at tweaking tactics in a lot of those cup ties during those runs and his teams won knockout ties against a lot...

    2019 Pats: In-Season Roster & Injury Discussion

    BB also seems (for good reasons) to have adapted to a strategy of very rarely kicking from 50+ anyway. Neither Ghost nor Nugent kicked from 50+ this year. Ghost was only 2/5 on those kicks last year. There will be circumstances in which you have to kick from that distance, such as the end of...
