It’s August NFL fans! Which means that it’s okay to start talking about football all day every day!
Wade & Ryan are back at the mike, and ready to dose out a healthy heaping of NFL banter, in this Decision Appeal podcast.
With the regular season only a month away, there are plenty of things to discuss in this episode, including:
Not even Gomer Pyle would be ‘surprised, surprised’ to find out that Roger Goodell and the league would appeal the 6 game suspension doled out to Deshaun last week.
Players and fans took to social media to compare the unfair punishment levied on Watson, and how other NFL players fared for weed, abuse, and drunk driving.
Whatever the result, this DW sitch ain’t going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
Whether Watson plays, is suspended, or is dragged into the streets and beaten with a switch-fans just want to watch football.
Save the drama for another channel.
Miami was also hit by the long arm of the NFL, as it smacked the Dolphins for decades of douchery when it comes to their hiring practices.
From secretly approaching Tommy Boy and Sean Payton, (but not throwing games)-the Dolphins lose Draft picks over the next two years.
Fortunately for Miami, two years is too far for Tua to throw.
Bad news for the Bucs, as TB12 has already started to leak weapons before the season has even started.
Centre Ryan Jensen is out for the season, and Bucs beast Tristan Wirfs has also experienced injuries to kick off training camp.
Like last season, there will be a lot of ‘bondo’ players brought in to patch up the holes for attrition.
The real question is, which teams injuries will take them out of the post season before they even have a chance to qualify?
Deebo Samuel can finally relax, after having been paid by the 49ers for his ridiculous efforts at multiple roles last season.
Fantasy owners were equally pumped and fearful each week, as DS became the heart of your team, but could also leave you in ruins if he got smoke out.
Deebo will take home $71.55m over 3 years, with $58.1m guaranteed. Even better are the bonuses he will make for getting over 380 rushing yards ($650k), 3 rushing TDs ($150k).
Deebo should be able to do all that by week 3!
Bad news for the Broncos, as they have already lost speedster Tim Patrick and RB Danarea Crockett for the season to ACL tears.
Patrick was a surprising uptick in the second half of fantasy last year, given plenty of points to players whose teams were riddled by injuries.
It would have been nice to see Russ cook with Patrick, but as it seems now, he’ll have to stay on the warming tray on the sidelines until 2023.
Have you hosted your NFL fantasy party already? Are you insane?
We have already seen plenty of keeners on social media, putting up pics of their ‘epic’ NFL Fantasy Draft.
Dudes, it’s August. There’s plenty of shit show to come, and you risk have a totally ruinous league by drafting too early.
Injuries, firings, more injuries, and depth rosters still have to be adjusted, not to mention that the preseason hasn’t even been played yet.
You could draft a whole team in August, only to find out that most of your squad was either hurt, benched or traded before the opening kickoff.
It’s good that you’re a keener, just be careful that your gusto doesn’t get you going too quickly.
