Ignore his VO bullshit. The rest of the show is great.

Osi is one of those people who just seems to be good at anything they turn their hand to.
Two time Superbowl champ, multi Pro Bowler.
Got out of the game without his brain or body breaking.
Now a very knowledgeable and fun presenter.
Invested his NFL money wisely and is very loaded indeed.
Apparently REALLY good at golf too.
Oh, and married to a former Miss World...

Don't you just hate him!

I agree, but this week they put him over the highlights of Thursday nights game. It especially annoyed me. Twats.

I do like Osi, but I find the analysis from both him and Bell is pretty poor. Chapman does a great job trying to get them to communicate their thoughts in a way the average viewer would understand, but then the ideas that are left are pretty shallow. And then their knowledge of teams/players is lacking as well.

Still, I guess the main thing is for them to be engaging and entertaining enough to get people watch, and they do that.

It's a tricky show to pitch. Just how much credit do they need to give the viewer in terms of their knowledge of the game.
Chapman tries to interject on occasion to ask Osi or Jason to clarify something, but I'd say that a lot of the technical stuff would go over the heads of casual viewers.
That said, the text box that scrolls along the bottom of the screen can be impressively patronising.

As for the annoying VO, I can only recommend the official NFL channel on YouTube. 10-15 minute highlights of EVERY game - usually available within an hour of the game finishing.
It's almost as if the NFL want fans to be able to watch the games! (Take note Premier League)

Steelers got out of jail tonight against the out-of-form Jags.
16-0 near the end of the 3rd quarter, but Big Ben and Antonio Brown suddenly got going to win it 20-16 with 3 seconds left.
Still don't think the D is good enough, but the O can always give us a chance when it's firing.

The Good Place makes me always feel sad for Jason when the Jags lose.

What. A. Game.
Possibly the greatest Monday Night Football match I've seen.

No spoilers. Here's the highlights.

A certain player having their worst performance of the season and absolutely stonking it with a massive return on my fantasy team.

Statistically it wasn't his worst performance - it was his best.
Someone said it was the the highest QB rating ever achieved by a losing player.

I probably put a higher ranking on turnovers than some.

Indeed another factor of the high scoring game was that some excellent defence contributed to the fast scoring nature (along with plenty of poor such play). Are we still on spoiler alerts?

His interceptions were right at the end of each half when chasing a quick score.
They appear the same on the stats, but they're a lot more forgivable.

Not sure anyone else cares.

Nice start by three of my players in the head to head at the top of the table clash.
Unfortunately my opponent in a 32 team league has Amari Cooper on their team; so that is gonna be some uphill task.

My team tends to live or die by the Steelers offence.
Need them to play like they did against the Panthers to have a decent chance this week.

Struggling with how I was able to maintain a bad team in a 6 person league with short rosters. I have been trying to do well.

Were you updating your roster with free agents/waivers?

Haven't made a second job out of it or anything, had to pick up a waiver wire bum to fill a bye week slot late on a Sunday once or twice.

ESPN ruined this week's big waiver score of Jaylen Samuels by dropping his TE designation making that a pointless pickup. He is still a TE in Yahoo leagues.
That's no Aaron Rogers playing QB listed as RB deal but I hate ESPN, the shit-interface fantasy cunts.

I mastered the art of dropping players just before their stand out performances and then bringing them back just in time for their bad performances. I'm looking at you Odell Beckham!

and I never found a consistent tight end.

and I didn't pick any Saints players.

lots of mistakes

At least whoever set up the League managed to run the draft off in under half an hour rather than the 5 days my other League did. Managed to act as spoiler in that but couldn't make the play-offs myself. Trading away TY Hilton probably cost me a bit.

Anyway, this weekends clashes look to be extremely tight at the moment. I covered myself ok despite loss of Kareem Hunt and should be fairly solid in the Running dept. Having watched the Oakland game I feel that Kansas could struggle with their offence against Baltimore, although home(field) advantage should help. May have to consider benching Mahomes. Rivers without homefield advantage too but is also at home to struggling Cincinatti seems like a nice match up.

Have had no problems picking up the waiver wire throughout the season myself.

Wouldn't have guessed he would turn out to be a bit of a k.hunt

Titans RB Derrick Henry's stats from last night:
17 Carries
238 Yards
4 Touchdowns
73 Fantasy Points!

And he was on a waiver...

He's always had the potential to have a game like that. Equally, it wouldn't be a surprise if he went back to 12 carries for 15 yards next week.

Oh, it's very likely.

What the fuck has happened to the Jags defence this season though?

They showed last week (annoyingly, as a Colts fan) that they've got the ability. So they're individually all good players still. But they don't seem to be either putting in the effort required or working together. Probably as a result of inflated egos.

Even this year, the defence has generally been OK.
It's been the Bortles-led offence that has been more predictably shit.

The holes that Henry was running through last night were ridiculous though.
Kudos to the Titans O-Line, but The Fridge would have had 100 yards rushing in that match!

AMAZING finish in Miami!
Dolphins score a 50+ yard TD on the final play to beat the Pats.
