Thursday Night Observations
That wasn’t the best game, but it was nice to be watching football again. Like when those shrooms kick in, and you realize, “I’m back!”
I had Jared Goff (259 yards, 1 TD) going in the Steak League, and he passed the eye test for me. Made decent throws under pressure, looked like a professional NFL quarterback. The Lions could really use Jameson Williams though, assuming Williams isn’t just another version of Kadarius Toney (more on him below.)
Amon-Ra St. Brown (9-6-71-1) scored a TD, putting in jeopardy my prediction he’d be under six this year. But he almost got tackled inside the five yard line again! That’s just how it goes when you get all your chances on receptions five-yards from the end zone, and you have to run around or through 2-3 defenders to get in. Tyreek Hill, he is not.
Jahmyr Gibbs (7-42-0, 2-2-18) also passed the eye test. He looked quick, fast, explosive and balanced, shook off tackles, gained extra yards.
