After 16 games I don't know what we could have held back, that would be brand new that the Giants haven't seen on tape. I guess MM or Capers could try something new but sticking with what worked to win 6 straight is good with me.

Packers not only will need to find a roster spot for a CB but for Pennel. Options are, Starks/Rollins to IR, and/or Ringo/Callahan cut

Just glad they're playing on Sunday. You can sit and enjoy the Saturday games.

Another benefit of this is that it probably increases our chances of keeping Cook. He's now on his most successful team ever and headed to the playoffs for the first time. Gotta be enjoying it right now.

Only CB on the practice squad is herb waters who was a WR for almost all of training camp. So i'm sure he'll be promoted.

I'd be disappointed if they didn't have anything held back.

I'd be fine if Matt Ryan got it because his team is pretty dependent upon him, his team had a better record, he put up pretty big #'s in his own right and for an extended stretch, unlike Aaron, I don't think he struggled.

Choices of Brady, Elliot, and Prescott would bother me. Brady didn't even play the first 4 games and his team were 3-1. And with the Cowboys all their offensive players make each other better. Their OL really should be MVP of the league, but of course it's not a unit award.

4,400 yards, 40 TDs and only 7 INTs. For a QB on a 4-6 team to say "we're going to win the rest" and go 6-0 while having the best statistical stretch of his entire career and lead the league in touchdowns (let's not forget his rushing TDs too), should completely seal it. If Brady gets it, it's a joke. He missed 4 games and his team went 3-1 without him. Maybe you can make a case for Carr? But his numbers are nowhere near Rodgers'. Ryan is the only other player who has a legitimate argument, and even then it's flimsy (are we really gonna put that much value in one extra win?).

Granted it was on offense but on that big 3rd and 1 we ran the read option which I've never seen us do.

We did it on the 2 point conversion at Atlanta.

Elliott will likely get ROY, and no way he wins that AND MVP over Ryan or Rodgers. A sneaky play could give Elliott the MVP and Prescott the ROY, but that would be a shocker. Both Rodgers' and Ryan's stats crush Prescott's. Brady I agree played 75% of the season, and again, doesn't have the numbers next to the NFC guys--though only throwing two picks is pretty impressive.

Rodgers is clearly the mvp. Take him off the packers and they are the browns. Take Brady off and the pats are still a playoff team. Only Ryan has a shot at mvp. But what Rodgers has do e the last 6 games proves he's the mvp.

Casey Hayward led the league in picks. If only...

This will sound cold given his injury, but Rollins has been crap all season long. I'd rather see if Hawkins could play better and then hope at least one of Randall and/or Dorleant can be healthy enough to play.

Ron Wolf was so right when he stated that a team can't ever have to many good corners. Gotta add some in every draft in case of injury or some don't pan out. Ted needed to hit on Randall and Rollins, but so far the results with both aren't exactly inspiring, even when healthy.

Gotta think Romo's cameo appearance today hurts Dak's MVP chances. Dude comes in for his first drive of the year and marches right down the field for a TD. Showed that they would proabably have the same record if any competent QB was back there.

Brice has been kind of an unsung hero for them this season. He hasnt been perfect (was late on the almost tate td) but for an undrafted rookie hes played a ton of defensive snaps and for the most part held his own out there. Its been so useful being able to put him at safety and move burnett around.

Really worried about the secondary. I already was, but the injuries only heighten it. Rodgers is going to need to be unreal.
PER 36:
Giannis: 23.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.7 steals, 2.0 blocks, 3.0 TO, .610 TS, .280 USG, 26.6 PER
Middleton: 19.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.8 steals, .3 blocks, 2.7 TO, .597 TS, .234 USG, 18.8 PER
