The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 9 Grueling Truths We Learned from Sunday’s Week 8 NFL Games

9 Grueling Truths We Learned from Sunday’s Week 8 NFL Games

1) Bill Belichick loves playing against young quarterbacks

New England has now put it to 2018 NFL draft first-rounders Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen this season. None has tasted victory, of course, but it’s their collective numbers against the Patriots that are jaw-dropping: 51-for-109 passing (46.8%), 530 yards, 1 TD, 9 INTs, 30.0 QB rating. (For context, an incomplete pass renders a 39.6 QB rating.) One more to go as Lamar Jackson and the Ravens will play host to the Patriots next weekend, any guess how that might turn out? RUN LAMAR RUN!

2) Bengals Head Coach Opie Taylor may never win a game

As the young Bengals head coach stood clueless on the sideline once again, you have to wonder will this ever get better for the Bengals. The defense seems constantly confused, the offensive line is a sieve and there is no help in sight. The Bengals have the smallest scouting staff in the NFL, so drafting well seems out of the question and Mike Brown stays away from free agency like the plague.

3) Drew Brees does make a difference

Sure the Saints were good with Teddy Bridgewater taking the snaps, but with Drew Brees doing it the Saints may just be the best team in the NFL and that’s without Alvin Kamara.

4) Ryan Tannehill should have started on opening day

The Titans, since starting Ryan Tannehill, have been 2-0 and are now a contender in the AFC South. This is a move that should have been made at the start of the season.

5) Nick Bosa is a bad man

Bosa can be given the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award right now and nobody would complain. His use of leverage and his hands are as good as it gets for an edge rusher.

6) Comeback Player of the Year

On Sunday Cooper Kupp had a huge day with over 200 receiving yards. Sure it was against a Pee Wee Football team coached by a 12-year-old, but Coop has been amazing all season long.

7) The Broncos are more conservative than Ronald Reagan

It’s a shame the Broncos try not to lose games instead of trying to win them! Head Coach Vic Fangio is a great defensive coordinator; too bad for the Broncos he is their head coach.

8) Russell Wilson is a beast, but Seattle is still a paper tiger

Too say the Seahawks are not inspiring to watch is an understatement, but quarterback Russell Wilson is inspiring. When the time comes though this team is many players away from being a legitimate Super Bowl contender. The wins have usually been close against poor teams and to say this team will go as far as Russell Wilson, and to a lesser extent Chris Carson, is an enormous understatement. The offensive line is terrible and the weapons are just not there for the Seahawks to make a deep playoff run.

9) I keep saying it, the 49ers are a Super Bowl contender, maybe now some will listen

The Niners manhandled the previously red-hot Carolina Panthers and hopefully, everybody will now take this very complete team seriously. Jimmy G. will only get better and when the offensive line gets everybody back, the sky will be the limit for the 49ers.
