This past week two of my daughters joined the site to play NFL Pick'em. They both went 50%. I, of course put up my worst week of the season getting just 5 correct. To quantify how bad I did, the only person who got less correct than me only made 7 picks!!! I outsmarted myself Thursday and then tried getting cute on Sunday. Everything went wrong, lol.

Anyhow, here's how the power rankings shuffled up for this week.

  1. Arizona Cardinals
  2. New England Patriots
  3. Carolina Panthers
  4. Cincinnati Bengals
  5. Seattle Seahawks
  6. Green Bay Packers
  7. Kansas City Chiefs
  8. Oakland Raiders
  9. Buffalo Bills
  10. Atlanta Falcons
  11. New York Jets
  12. Denver Broncos
  13. Houston Texans
  14. Minnesota Vikings
  15. New York Giants
  16. Indianapolis Colts
  17. San Diego Chargers
  18. Chicago Bears
  19. Pittsburgh Steelers
  20. Washington Redskins
  21. Miami Dolphins
  22. Dallas Cowboys
  23. Cleveland Browns
  24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  25. Philadelphia Eagles
  26. Tennessee Titans
  27. New Orleans Saints
  28. Baltimore Ravens
  29. Detroit Lions
  30. St. Louis Rams
  31. Jacksonville Jaguars
  32. San Francisco 49ers

Commonly it takes three or more seasons in the NFL for a wide receiver to really break through. Davante Adams teased us with two really good games as a freshman and by all appearances he was ready to make the next step forward. While no one ever figured him to be the next Jerry Rice or even Jordy Nelson, it was safe to believe he would be a solid WR2 or really good WR3. Add Mike McCarthy labeling Adams the MVP of the off-season (seriously, aren't those for Vikings?) and Aaron Rodgers going out of his way to praise the sophomore we're forced to wonder, what the hell happened??

Make no mistake about it, every team is loaded up with players playing hurt right now and our receiving corps(e) is no different.

Randall Cobb - Shoulder A/C Joint
James Jones - Hamstring
Davante Adams - Sand-in-Vagina or maybe Ankle Sprain
Ty Montgomery - Ankle Sprain

Any athlete will tell you the hardest part about injury recovery is the mental side of it, trusting that the injury is healed. Adams might be 100% physically healed, but mentally, he's soft between the ears and is not trusting his body and it's showing with his lack of focus/concentration on catching the balls. He's also stopped catching with his hands (which coming out of college he was praised for) and is trying to be a body catching receiver.

Adams has some physical talent and if he doesn't get it right between the ears, the talent won't matter.

Aaron Rodgers is a problem, not the problem.

Playing Scared
Rodgers acknowledge he was scared on one play, of one quarter in one game. That is it. He did not say he was playing scared "multiple times". Rodgers later said "Turns out ‘J.J.’ ran ‘Peanut’ into 25 [he meant Coleman] and Randall’s wide open for the touchdown. So it’s disappointing." which explains what had him scared on the play. He made a mistake, that's it.

Accuracy and Efficiency
Rodgers has been off on his 10+ yard passes nearly the entire season. You look at the games with high completion percentages and a large majority of completions didn't travel even 10 yards in the air. He's not leading his receiver to the ball for yards after catch and is rather trying to hit them on the spot. I'm going to give him an excuse here when I say he's probably not leading them because he can't trust them to run the right damn route!!

QBa: 22/43 202 1td 1int 62.4 rating
QBb: 19/31 200 1td 0int 90.8 rating

QBa: 16/34 212 2td 0int 86.9 rating
QBb: 25/37 296 1td 0int 100.7 rating

QBa: 35/61 333 2td 0int 83.6 rating
QBb: 24/38 242 2td 1int 87.8 rating

QBa is Aaron Rodgers, but the QBb's were Jay Cutler, Teddy Bridgewater and Matthew Stafford. These quarterbacks have no business outperforming Aaron Charles Rodgers.

Pocket Presence
Rodgers is not showing his normal Cali Cool in the pocket. He looks like a hamster on crack with those happy feet and he's not setting his plant foot when he has room. Rodgers has often times thrown with horrible form and it wasn't an issue.

Bench Rodgers
There have been a few, a very select few who are yearning for Scott Tolzien or even Brett Hundley. Stop. Just stop it. Rodgers has had 15 dropped passes that if even half were caught, the Packers would be 9 - 2 instead of 7 - 4. The only quarterback I would take over Rodgers for just this season would be Tom Brady.

The Packers need to stick with the run more and sit some of their wounded receivers and hopefully make a deep playoff run. If they continue how they are now, it'll be one and done and heads will be demanded to be rolling.

That dude who has a steakhouse in town is having his number retired Thursday which puts him in the category of Tony Canadeo, Paul Hornung, Don Hutson, Bart Starr and Reggie White.

What are your five favorite memories of Brett Favre?

  1. Jumping over the squirrel in 94

  2. This play here.
    Favre, whose head bounced off the grass, sat out two plays before returning to throw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Javon Walker on fourth-and-5. After celebrating the touchdown with Walker, Favre was summoned to the sideline, where medical personnel said he displayed signs of a concussion.

  3. Running down the field after hitting Andre Rison

  4. Falcons dive for the win

  5. Throwing snowballs at the 2007 season playoff game against Seahawks. I was there!

You'll notice the rankings are titled "through" meaning the algorithm's being used are compounding the rankings from the Week 1 through Week 11 collectively and not a knee-jerk reaction to the previous week. When there is a tie, I then interject my infinite wisdom. Blink

The Badgers played Northwestern over the weekend and were screwed over on what else, a catch that was called not a catch. This is how you prepare kids for the NFL. Screw them over on that level too.

Jazz Peavy took four steps, knee down without bobbling the ball and it was reviewed and called an incomplete pass. Badgers lose.

This whole what is a catch thing has tarnished the NFL and now NCAA too. Enough is enough. Make the rule more black/white than gray/grey.

Raise your hand if you've wanted to see Jeff Janis on the field, regardless if he makes a catch? The kid can run and they have to use him. Sound familiar? It should because we've been saying it for weeks if not months.

Trot his speedy ass out there and let him run deep and if he gets a step, hit him, if he doesn't then toss it up and get a 50 yard pass interference. Yards are yards either by completion or penalty.

Jeff Janis ran a 4.42 40 during the 2014 combine. Damarious Randall, who ran 4.41, says Janis is 4.3 speed. Stating the obvious here, Randall believes Janis is faster than him. Hmmm.

Janis is learning more and more with each game.
Jeff Janis said:
Speed can kill, but at this level, I started to realize this year, or halfway through last year, that it takes a little bit more than just speed. It takes technique, things like that. It's something I'm learning and getting better at.

Sam Shields, who ran a 4.3, believes Janis is a helluva player and it sounds like Janis and Rodgers need to spend some "bro-time" together to get on the same page.
Sam Shields said:
Man, Janis is a hell of a player. Speed? You can't teach that. That's something in the league you need. He's just got to keep working with 'A-Rod.' I don't know how that goes over there. It's getting that confidence with him. That's the job for him.
