Cheese. He settle. Welcome backto the onboard podcast. Is Episode Ninety Three of the show. We areonce again joined by Christian pilchure. How are we mate? Good. Thankyou mate, and we are glad to be joined by someone else for achange, James Curtis. How are you going, mate? I'm good.Thanks, mate. Glad to be on. Yeah, I don't think we've hadsomeone else on the podcast in like two months. Just with exams andstuff, just being mean peach grinding it out. Always appreciate that from Peach, but nice to get a new face in. Just fixed my mic volumeso I won't be ruining the episode this time. But we'll be discussing weekfourteen of the NFL. Have you been enjoying the NFL this season, Kurt, absolutely may, except for all the fact that myne is a dog shot. That's another story. Yes, yeah, they are in might loser section.Bit of a spoil there, but not a good week for them.But yeah, we'll start by reviewing week fourteen, just chat about a fewdifferent things in a few different sections and then at the end of the sowill preview week fifteen of the show of the season. But winners pilch joina status off. Who is your first winner of the week? First winnerof the week Washington football team. Finally top of the actually, they mighthave main top last week, but the top of the NFC east and,barring a miracle, they're probably going to take it out. So congrats tothe Redskins, actually football team. Well, thank sorry. Ah, well,that race all that. Are you ruling out your g man yet,or you still back in them in? Yeah, because of just used theirschedule and yeah, then, yeah, they they've done right, but done. Yeah, Washington are one of my winners as well. Be To beata pretty disappointing forty nine is team. It was a pretty sloppy game,but Washington's defense want for them. Chase young had put on an absolute clinic. He is turning out to be the beast that everyone thought he was goingto be. But yeah, Alex Fith got into Japan. Hoskins came inlike they didn't do much on offense, but did enough to win the game. Their defense is like seriously elite, though, and they're now six andseven. They've got the Seahawks, panthers and Eagles to come. And Iwas looking at my thirty eight predictions website thing and they're up to a seventyfour percent chance of making the playoffs, which is easily the highest any NFCeast team has had a season. So, yeah, massive week for the Washingtonfootball team. How so they're six and seven. Now they've got seahawks, Panthers Eagles. Are we back in them in to win two of thosepiled or we'll go to curtis. Curtis, how many JE can of those three? Are they winning? Seahawks, Panthers and Eagles? Definitely to andlow key chance to beat the seahawks, as were reckon, are good matchup with their beast defense in the seahawks really rely on the offense. Soall right, and they're good matchup there as well. Yeah, if theyif they win all three, the hand I'm going nine and seven. Soall this shit talk about this divisions kind of irrelevant then. But all right, Kurt, I'm gonna I'm going to say they go one and two.Yeah, as a saw knack on. Yeah, I'm actually add in myplayoff predictive thing before and I had them going one and two. But Iagree with Kurt. I think upsurt, UPSETT, upset. Watch for thisweekends the seahawks and then the eagles. Who knows what they'll put up inthe last round. Curtis, do you...

...have a winner for us? Mate, are doing the whole NFC? Any any league, any any team?I'm tossing up between the Rams and the bears, but I'm going to gothe bears back in the win, win, win sheep. Mate, should besky played well. There's low key still in the race, but likethey're still what they're still in, I the category the Vikings and stuff.So yeah, a little saucy called there, but I think the bears look prettygood. Their defense actually came up big again. Will Not again thefull like once in like last three weeks. Actually came up big. So yeah, I'm going to say they're back in the winner sheet and yeah,big old true Bisky's looking good. Yeah, I don't stay agree with you there. I actually they were the underdogs going into that one with Houston andI mentioned it last week saying that's a cheeky chance for an upset there,but didn't expect it to be that much of a blowout. Kurt, you'rea bit of a fan of Tu Biscay. Do you think he should be theman going forward and into next season. Yeah, well, I don't wouldn'tsay I'm a massive fan of him, but like, compared to falls,like I think there's not even a comparison. Like I don't even knowwhy falls going to be a shot, to be honest, given there area large pretty dog shit. But somehow trubisky's athletics isn't like really helps outwith that. And we're goomer's playing well with the M so yeah, I'mI think trubisky definitely needs to lay claim to that starting spot for the restof the season and if they manage to sneaking to the playoffs, which prettyunlikely, but if so definitely deserves this bott the playoffs. Yeah, thatthat number seven wildcuts. What is what they would be buying out for that? Positions kind of gone to the shit. Really at the moment I've got ateam going a nate winning it. So not the highest quality of depthin the NFC at the moment. PILCH GM any other winners man. Indeed, Baltimore Ravens huge matchup this week against the browns and they got it donein Cleveland. So for me they're back to second best team in that division. And they're going to be a threat in the playoffs. Big threatn yeah, it was Super Bus Super Bowl contention. I don't know about that, man. I think you need to just punt the brakes there a little bit. there. They've got the chiefs to contend with. But, like theRavens, have been hard to trust. All you, but that was definitelyone of their best performances. Surprisingly, it wasn't their defense getting them overthe line, though, which is what we normally expect. Lamar had aone of his best games of the season. He's not been the greatest of form, but he looks to have kind of snapped that in the last twoweeks and drew's and Willie sneed put up some big catches where in the clutchmoments, I think it was trace mcsorley through one on a fourth down toWillie sneed with only like three minutes to go and he clutched up and jukedit. So the receivers are finally stepping up and yeah, it's looking prettydecent for the Ravens. Will be interesting to see how they go, whetherthey're they're likely going to be matched up against the bills all the times orsomething said I'll be a pretty good game. But, by the way, Idid, did you? What do you do, reckon? Lamar wascramping or she shut himself? Is that a room that he shout himself?Yeah, it was all over social media. Did you watch the game? Yeah, when he went off. Yeah, I'm talking like all over twitter,everyone's saying he had to go, he had diarrhea and he had togo take a shit, because they said he was cramping, but I'm talkinghe was sprinting off, like sprinted to the locker rooms, straight into thebathrooms. Yeah, got himself there. Yeah, actually, could be afair thing, minc surely that does happen...

...right a month as well? Actually, yeah, he's done the cory carrison shot. Shut himself turning a randompeel. But yeah, yeah, that's another story for another day though.But yeah, it was pretty superman effort from him. He just appeared afterthe two minute warning and then first attempts just put through a like seven yardtouched by that was disgusting defense. Yeah, great game, a game I reckon. The brands are still in the winners even though they lost that game. Yeah, I agree with the actually, I didn't really write them that muchgoing into it then. I mean the offense showed up. Big Bakerlooked pretty good. Obviously they got two elite running backs and their defense probablyjust have like an off game, and we know Boltwards Dad's elite. SoI reckon your ticking boxes by the fact that that D pretty average. Butthat just be a one off so far for this season. Yeah, they'rethe real deal, but I feel like that's been established by now. Yeah, they're, specially after last week the AFC playoffs, browns at least stacked. Actually, they FC playoffs are going to be that good. Like allthree games on the first weekend. They're going to be pretty intense. Likeyou got teams like the Ravens and browns likely to play either the Times,Bill stills or chiefs. So very juicy stuff. They're or Indian. Yeah, true, indie. I've got them coming in the seventh of the moment, but they're also kind of a spicy team as well. My second winneris the eagles, the other NFC east winner. Jail and hurts first startput on a bit of a clinic. They're finally had enough of cast andwinds. I think it's about time, to be honest. Anything they hadmuch to lose at this point by bench him, and tough for hurts thathe had to debut against probably the best defense in the comp but he cameout with the win. Sands had a great game as well. I thinkyou had like an eighty five yard touchdown. Saying like that, jalen hurts whenover a hundred yards on the ground as well, and all of asudden, in my opinion, they're actually sniff at the playoff spot again.I think they would have to win two out of their three in Washington andonly have to win one of their final three, but I think it's achance. If they're going to a look like this week and week out,I can't see why they can't win out almost so I think it was apretty big week for the eagles. Didn't look like anyone could beat the saints, but they got the job done. Their defense is actually really, reallygood, probably a bit underrated, I'd say. But on the flip sideof that argument, a big loser this week's probably cast and Wentz. Itlooks like, barring a miracle, he won't be the starter in Philadelphia intwo thousand and twenty one. You'd think hurts will get the GIG moving forwardand that means he's either just going to have to copy spot on the benchor someone's going to have to pick up that hefty contract. So it's notlooking good for cast and at all. Yeah, Paul Wenci loved the greatman, but he's had an absolute stinker. Curtis, any other side you wantto mention? To want to mention the rams, or a reckon therams of big win up just kind of solidifined a bit of a spot inthe playoffs. I mean I know the parts were beached the week before andthen they just random over us. So yeah, I think that they're lookingpretty good. The Rams. In all honesty, their defense is real solidwith Donald and Ramsey and then, I don't know, Golf's looking pretty goodand they've got a good running back course. So they're looking pretty solid. TheRams. Yeah, that they actually almost kind of looking like the brownsa bit with a more solid de fence. But yet golfs doing absolute bits.And Yeah, AK is absolutely killed it. Didn't he yeah, didn'tit look like in the first half of the season he was going to bea bit of a flop? But he is absolutely sprouted the last last monthor so and he's taken taking charge of...

...that backfield and absolutely killing it.There are losers, pilch, if you got in the lose yeah, wewent obviously gets benched and then hurts balls out. Big Knock to when sauceand I reckon he might land out the pats next season. Thoughts on that? Yeah, I saw that being floated. I don't mind it, curt,do you back that or not? Really Dogs? No, it's yeah, but I don't know if the patch an even go for it. Likehe's on a massive contract. Yeah, that's the only thing. Like it'sa what's a franchise Max or something like that? We're talking like hundreds ofmillions. And Yeah, I don't know if the pattern even like behind thatat all. So I think I think the Eagle was in bit of asticky spot, to be honest, because I don't know if they can getrid of Wentz. Yeah, it'd be a massive wrist for whoever takes thatcontract up. But we saw the bears take up folds contract, so we'veprobably seeing crazier things. But yeah, not looking too good for wentz rightnow. It does look like you might just have to rot on the pinebut I hope you goes somewhere else just for as a view up. Butthe stand with that contract. It's making things very, very tough. Curtis, do you have anyone for the loser section here? May The steelers mayspeak. Actually, speaking of I don't know if you mentioned the fields.They're they're big winner for the way. Yeah, yeah, we actually didn'tmention that. As far it's diff but yeah, and and specifically Allan.Allan was Um ball enough to say, especially in that second half. ButAnyway, I wanted to lose that. I'm still the steelers. I knowthey've looked real worried, worrying the last two weeks and, to be honest, some bit worried about them in the playoffs. Now I don't even knowif they can actually win their first playoff game because their seats now looking ina bit of strife and they're just completely out of form. That day lookedpretty average. They're full of injuries at the moment and I don't know eventheir wide receiver call, which we were all like Raven about weeks ago,with Clay Pool, Washington, Johnson and Ju Ju. They're all looking prettyaverage and suddenly like they're not not throwing those, you know, massive passesto clay pool and Ju Ju's not raindos m those crossing routes like as well, and they're geting cut off a bit, as we saw in that interception thebills game on this week. So I know I reckon there. They'repretty Warren and I think I read some of the only rushed for a hundredthirty sixty eyes in the last three weeks. So like corn on their rush bad. Yeah, even with their rushy mate, it's a worried. Thewhole the whole thing's a bit of a worried at the moment with the stealers. Yeah, I understand. Agree with you there. I thought after theWashington lost I was just like they've had some weird fixtures. What we'll justforget about it. And yes, the bills are a really good team.I highly rate them. Yeah, definitely, warring lost. claiple's kind of gotmissing Hassany. I almost forgot about him until you just mentioned him.But yeah, not looking good for the steels at all. Also a lotof injuries on defense, which is was looking like it was going to bethe side of the ball that was going to carry them to the playoffs oran AFC championship game. But yeah, not looking good for them at themoment, especially when all the other AFC playoff teams are trending upwards, suchas the Ravens of the browns. So, yeah, worrying times and Pittsburgh,and they're really got to bounce back in the next three weeks if they'regoing to, you know, charge for that super bowl or anything. Myfirst loser is actually the New York giants. They get talked about probably more thanany other team on this podcast, but yeah, big lot to anouter form cardinal side, and that, along with Philly and Washington both gettingup, I don't think anything could have gone much worse for the giants reallythis weekend. They went from being like...

...straight up fifty chances of making theplayoffs with Washington last week to all of a sudden, in my opinion they'rethe third shot. Like statistically they're still the second most likely to make it, but yes, it's not looking good for them at the moment. DanielJones didn't have a single carry in his return from his hamstring injury, whichshows that he's basically still got a hamstring injury and he's just going to giveit a crack. The defense, which has been the thing that was carryingthem the previous weeks, conceded twenty six points to an Arizona team that hadbeen struggling to score. So that's not ideal. Wayne Golman seems to haveslowed down after he'd put up like a hundred plus and like three weeks ina row. And now they hut. They do have to beat the Ravensor the browns and then I think they have the cowboys in the last week. They have to win that as well. So yeah, it's looking unlikely thatthey're going to be able to win one of those browns Ravens Games.They have produced a few upsets this year, but it will have to take somethingspecial in one of those if they're going to make it from here.And yet, after the weekends performance, I've lost a lot of faith inthe giants as a playoff contender. So yeah, Sad I are you.Are you said about them, Pilch, or do you think they're still chance? Devastated? Man Devastated, but still definitely not favorites anymore. But stilla sniff. Yeah, fair enough people. Do you have any other losers?Man. Yeah, my saints pretty shocking loss to they are eagles andthey've just tossed away their number one seed in the NFC to the packers.And the eagles have given up like by far the most sacks this season.Saints had zero sacks against them and they've given up an eighty five yard touchdownto sanders. So their frontline defense has how to stink up. And Yeah, they were just shit. Yeah, it's pretty surprising. Now is oneof my like short bets of the week. Last week I thought that was alocked in win. But yeah, are you worried about the saints,Curtis? If drew brees can't get back to think they're out of championship contention? Or do you know, because I feel like the says, I don'tknow. They played the stinker of first half where they just let taste yourthrow the ball and that's like like all honesty, like you did, Dcqbe but he's not not a good like. He's not a good thrower, like. That's not each skill set. He's built like a tight end.He's he's like a mole mate. He's just going to go straight through throughthat or D line of the opposition. So I know they're got to playhim a bit like that. The Eagle Play hurts this week actually where theyneed it. They need to do a few rpos and run the man and, you know, try, try, use your skill set rather than form, for me, into something that he's not. Yeah, back that.You do think breeze will get it back before the end of the year?Curtis, I know we haven't heard too much about his injuries in a while, but I'm not sure. I feel like if he doesn't, I Ican, you might call it, to be honest. So I feel likehe's going to eat that get back and play this year, or you mightcall it with the career, to be honest. Yes, he's injuries arepretty freaking hectic. It's like fourteen broken ribs or some shit. But yeah, they're saying he's going to be back before playoffs. But yeah, Idon't know if it will be, if I'm honest. But yeah, I'llbe interesting. If they've got taystom hill a quarterback. I don't know ifthey can win the NFC championship, to be honest, but yeah, theirdefense it's been pretty incredible, so we'll see what they can do in theplayoffs. My second loser is the forty nine. It's Kurts Boys. I'vebeen all over the forty nine is in the past three weeks. But yeah, I had to, I had to mention them in a negative light here. They got beaten by Washington, who didn't score a single offensive touchdown,and for for that reason it's all but...

...really eliminated them from the playoff race. I thought they were a good smoky for the seventh spot in the playoffs, the third wild card. But yeah, now they're going to have to producesomething special, like going three and three from their last three. They'vegot the cowboys, cardinals and Seahawks, so I don't think it's completely outof the question, but given the fact that they've lost like five on thetruck or something more. I've one one, one lost for or something like that. That's fine, it's looking too likely. Sorry, boys, armit as all the bank blush you. If they miss out, that willmake it four of the last five Super Bowl losers have missed the playoffs inone of the two following seasons. So there's definitely some sort of super bowllosing curse going on, because that's pretty weird. But they have been decimatedby injuries. It does have to be fair, it does have to bestated if we're going to be fair about it. But yeah, disappointing fromthe nine is especially on the weekend. I thought that would have been theirchance to like announced their playoff candida to see by beating it in for Washingtonteam, but they couldn't get it done. So a little bit disappointing their curtisany other losers. You want to mention the raiders there you're actually pumpedby the colts. So I don't know, it's a bit of a worry thatthe chiefs would they come up against some good, good talented teams.would be fair. The cold sign even that time is well coach, team, well structured and they just get the job done. But the fact thatthey just got pumped by the colts, who aren't exactly anything special in termsof like the talent they have on their roster. It's a bit of aconcern because they got forty four put up against them with an offense that likedoesn't exactly have a standout keep the way you stand out. One receivers acta rookie, a rookie running back, and you know the right the rights, for I've been counted, as you know, like a pop of Challengerin the playoffs. So I know I want to see but it concerning,to be honest, and definitely a loser this week. Yeah, it's beena pretty awful month for the raiders. Like before, like even three weeksago, I had them as a wild card side potential, potential to upseta big team in the playoffs. But yeah, it's completely gone off therails in the last three weeks. Barring a win to the jets in alast minute Hail Mary, it's just been losses, losses, losses. Soyeah, no, not great from the raiders after such a promising start andit and a few promising outings against the chiefs. But yeah, their seasonlooks over. If it's, if it's not already, they'll have to producethem insane stuff in this last three weeks. But yeah, unless you guys haveanyone else you want to mention, all right, we move on toour predicted playoff brackets. Now this is where it gets a little bit rope. Kurt will a, will see how you go here, because I don'tknow if you on the same page. But we'll see. So you joina stars soft. Kurt, your predicted playoff brackets for the NAC the NFC? Yeah, WE'LL START WITH N se. What teams have you got making itas of right now? Go Washington to NFC. He's got the ramsthe NYC West. I've got the packers for the nycy north and I'm stillat the saints for the NACCIL. And then the wild cards. I've gotthe Seahawks, I've got the bucks. And this is where it gets abit tough, to be honest, because there isn't it. There's a lotof candidates for the air this last what you can have the cardinals. Youhave the Vikings. You know there's wins. That's going to be one of theworst calls building. So they're literally one win behind me. Yeah,they have to win all three and they...

...have won like three games all season. You're wrong, mate. They just need to win to now anyway.And I think low key that the vikings, even though they're lost this week tothe bucks, our little saucy spot for that sen seed in the NFCplayoffs. Yeah, I'm actually back in you in there, Kurt. Vikingsare my seventh seed as well. I've got them going eight, nate,and I've got the other sides going seven and nine or missing out. ButI was looking at the last week. There are some spicy matches that willdecide the playoff picture. Like pretty much all the playoff candidates play someone elsein the playoffs, so they'll be interesting, I think, like the cardinals playthe Seahawks, Washington play Philadelphia. So but I haven't got too manychanges from last week. I've got the packers in the number one spot.Saints Rams like you do, Kurt. But this is where I get alittle bit saucy. I'm actually backing in the eagles to go three from threeover the next three weeks back in Washington, to only beat the panthers in thereremaining three, which will see the eagles make it over Washington. It'slooking very unlikely. I was looking before and statistically there's like a ten percentchance of it happening. But you know what, I'm back in in jailhurts and the boys. I'm getting on the hype train. Big Fan ofthe Eagles, so why not? And we don't know what's happening with theWashington offense at the moment. It's not looking too good, although they arein good form as a team. And then, yeah, same as youcan, wild cards bucking your seahawks Vikings. So yeah, it's that's seven spot. It's looking a bit weird, but yeah, back in the Vikingis. Why not? Pill two of you got in the NFC. Yeah, so just the one change, actually two changes. Got Washington NFCAS nowand I've got the cardinals for the seventh seed. Always back in in theresurgence. Yeah, they probably are the best team out of they've got anextra win out of all the other boys. So yeah, they they've got atougher schedule but us. That's all. But yeah, they are a betterteam, you'd have to say, than like the bears in the Vikings. But yeah, we'll see how that goes. Marie did have a lotmore carries as well on the weekend, so it looks like he is returnedinto better health. King cards have two pretty likely with W's eagles and niners. I can't really I don't reckon I lose those. Yeah, they yeah, they shouldn't lose those realistically, should they? But yeah, I'm I'mbacking in my Viking. SS Kurby, you're back in the cards. I'dsay that's the more popular option. So after their big win on the weekend. The AFC, however, Kurt, who are you rocking here? Thebills, an AFC east, the chiefs and APC, where steelers, aAFC north? And then we're going to go there the cults and Afccut alittle saucy one there, Indie, and yes, indeed, indeed. Andthen I'm going to have, gonna have in the wild spot's going to havethe titans, the browns and I'm going to go the dolphins as well,over there, Ravens, and it's deep. I'M NOT A boy. I loveit. I love it. People don't back my boy twin backing whatever. Yeah, I've got I've got the chiefs, steelers, titans to winthe south, bills and they'll go on Ravens, fifth seed, and thenI'm gone with browns and Indie over dolphins. Yeah, I had to be boring, but I've got the exact same as you, pilled. I've gotchief steels bills and then I've got the times finishing over the colts, samerecord, but based on division percentage of...

...with the Times winning that one.And Yeah, the Ravens browns cult. I've actually got fourteens finishing on elevenand five, though, so it should be tired. Yeahs dolphins just missingout for some reasons. I can just see the dolphins making it. Idon't know why. I just feel like my grind out wins, even thoughthey're like super toomate. It's all tooards towards weapon just back and wet weapondefense as well. But yeah, I'll just I know everything going to makeit over. Yeah, that's the problem. They're gonna have to. They're goingto need some losses from the colts or browns or something, or theRavens, as curt suggested, but they might also have to like upset thebills or something like that to really get it over the line. But yeah, I've got the dolphins and raiders just missing out. All right. Offensiveplayers at the week for week fifteen pilch during start with your AFC candidate.Who Are you? Rock and here? AFC Plat of the week, LamarJackson. For me it was pretty obvious. Got Got the boys over the lineagainst the browns. Huge W put up hundred twenty rushing yards, threetouchdowns, put on a clinic and that was with a a toilet break inthe fourth quarter. Okay, couple in the radar. tench could go withB Canry, mate the Derrick Henry or maybe bear Josh Allen. Yeah,yeah, I've actually back in the guy who's mentioned Derrick Henry. Two hundredand twenty two yards from scrimmage to TD's. It was against the Jags, butstill that's pretty ridiculous start line. So I'm back in the in.Can we just point out like, fair play Lamar. Lamar had a greatgame, so I fair play, but I've never seen a man be sobiased towards his fantasy players. As soon as he gets Ryan Towne Hill,he thinks the titans of the greatst side of NFL history, and now he'sall over the Ravens. He's got them. My Lamas are pretty I say Lamarwould be the consensus vote for this, for this section, but I'm I'ma biased man. NFC player Hiach and FC Player of the week meBrot, me bore. You Rogers from the packers don't have him on fantasy, so you can't pull the bias card. But yeah, bowled out, ashe does every single week, he's passer rating over the last nine weeksis like thirty or some shit. We're talking just ridiculous, and I reckonhe's genuinely a go it contender now. But I'm yeah, Rodgers, yeah, when wasn't he dat contender? Me, you always have. That's actually afair point. The Rogers before. He was the goat before this year. Yes, well, I've been greater if it would have changed that much. My brain don't. We're talking ran the MVP this year, mate,right, and they gonna give it to it like he probably deserves. Madthat it's going in my home or can it's going Rogers, mate. GreatBrady's big go in terms, like accolades cheap, but everyone says Rogers islike big goat qub like just added out. Yeah, Mokey. I'm back inmy homes to take that spot as made. Rogers has like six moretouchdowns than my homes. What the touchdowns of Bullshit, mate, because it'slike you're on the one yard line. Yeah, your side either just runsin or past. It's not like a skillful like road. They never letJones you run, and you know that more than anyone. But to behonest, I actually do have Rogers winning the MVP in my voting thing atthe moment, but that's not based the back of my home story. Afew interceptions. I feel like everyone's getting on the bammark bem wagon because ofthat. My NFC player of the week I've got with a pod here,but miles sanders. He had one huge...

...td runn think was eighty yards orsomething, but overall had a hundred thirty six yards from scrimmage to td's butmore importantly, it was against what has seemingly been an impenetrable saints defense tothis point of the season. So pretty incredible that he was able to dothat. Really helped out jail and hurts on the ground. So yeah,I'm giving it to him. Curtis. Chase Young, mate, because theman is an absolute monster, and I'm talking he scares any offense you playplay against. I'm pretty sure it said a little saucy colity you boys theother day and I said chase young was the worst player in that defensive line. It was the all been bowling, but I mean this week he's shownyou wrong and he's absolutely dominated. So yeah, okay. Do you thinkhe should have been the number one pick or do you think just the factthat Joe Barro is a quarterback. He deserved to go number one. Imean he was. He the most talented play in the draft, probably,but the fact that, you know, a cubeast the most important play onthe field hands down, like they make a make on field decisions, thatthey make the decision of where they're going to throw to. Like, yeah, Bar Barrow should have gone up one. And Yeah, to be fair,he like the way he was playing, he deserved to go number one aswell, like he was bowling until you're injured. Yeah, just havea look at what's happened to sin ever since borrow got injured. Yeah,the big dog. They've gone off Solute Shit. That's the name. Youstop with your fantasy players made like honest, she so fucks right, he suck. He's so called of the moth. May I don't. I didn't evenhave Joe Barrow in Fantasy Mate, so you know that. Cool,he's invalid. You did you at one point. They are this way.I did it like the best six weeks. Yeah, yeah, you had andyou, and you, I'm talking, you were sucking him off. Madeas as we we should be. Make know. Yeah, it's acrossover fantasy and rookie, sucking off pilch's favorite to subject. Love. He'sthis is surprised play of the week didn't go to Taylor and peel. Justbooks on. I see me. Oh, we're about to hear. About tohear man's offensive rookie of the week. Yeah, go ahead to I'M NOTgonna lie. I'm very tempted to give this to can makers, butI'm gonna go Taylor. Is Akas didn't get into the end zone. Taylorscored two touchdowns. So Jonathan Taylor a hundred fifty yards, two touchdowns.Fair play. He wanted again for me. Won It last week and he's doneit again. Rat as he they seem like a shot defense, butstatistically there not even the worst. They're not even that bad over the lastlike five weeks. So yeah, it's not like he was a flat trackbully. So well done, jt Kurt offensive rookie of the week. Wegot anyone for this? Joe Telly? Yeah, thanks. Why it hasto be to be honest. Well, to kind of WHO is? Well, what about two up? Yeah, I didn't get the job done.So yeah, I get the game script, but he did lose, like thesetwo favorite receivers in the first half. So right, and the other weektour and Acre's performances would have probably taken out of this award. Butfor too did impress me, though. He bowled out. And Yeah,pretty's very better against good teams, like it's yeah, for sure. Yeah, and just quickly before you get into our week fifteen picks, just shoutout to defensive player of the week. has on Reddick, outside linebacker forArizona up against the giants, part of the defense that kept the giants toseven points. But more importantly, he got five sacks, which is prettysilly. That's like not even the worst that season. Yeah, I don'tknow how it's a thing to tackles for...

...a loss, which is as goodas sacks, and three false fumbles. So fair say it's probably one ofthe goat games. Not sure how he was allowed to do that, butanyway. And also shout out to Jamal Adams, broke the single season defensiveback sack record against his old team. So there's still three matches to go. So pretty silly to be honest. At this point he's basically an edgerush over. Fair play to Jamal atems or a week fifteen picks. Lads, Pilch, join US start us off, mate. Yeah, I'll look atI'll look at how we did last week. I think we did allright, not as good as the week before, but we'll get back onthe horse this week. Pilch shot better the week. Yeah, to thea few like absolute guarantees, like the jets, but I've avoided those ones. I've gone a bit more value. And that's Indie over Houston. Idon't think there's any chance Houston win this. It's in Indie. So yeah,absolutely absolute guarantee. That's a bold call. Actually, out of allthe out of all the givemes, you could have picked our right it ofpurposely avoided there the gimmes. Yeah, respect to respective. We're actually haven'tlost a short bet yet. So respect. Curtis shot better the week by Johanna. Pick a game here that you think is an absolute gimme for theside. Well, unlike pull trash, she would like to select it definiteshure. Yeah, mine, they give me as well. Why is itgive me? Let's be real, it's not. So I'm going to buyyou money back in the the ravens over the Jacks. Yeah, respect,respect, right to be fair. The jags haven't been that bad. Theyhad a stink on the weekend, but before then they were kind of ingood forms. Now not. Yeah, we'll cop that, but definitely giveme mine is a hundred percent of give me the steels to beat the bangles. The Bangles are really sure it's happening with their quarterbacks. I think BrandonAllen could be injured, but still too lost is on the trip. Butthey can't lose this one, can they? The bangles just got pumped thirty two, but by the cowboys, thirty two seven. So have also scoredten or less in four of their last five. So, yeah, stillslose this one. They probably don't deserve to make the playoffs at all.Probably should be kicked out. But yeah, sure, better the week. Wehaven't lost one yet, so feel free to just put money on themand send us a cut. Upset of the week multi with all our threeshort bets, actually get a bit of value, but I'm upset of theweaker. Yeah, yeah, I actually struggled with this this week. Well, yeah, the there's I've only predicted one upset and I've gone with I'veactually gone with the gymn over Cleveland. It's a big call, but Idon't know. I think last week was just a bit of are just adown. weeight for the GYMN and they'll bounce back. Hopefully Danny dimes isfitted this week and yeah, could see it happening. It's in New Yorkas well. Enough. Fair enough, curt do you back that or notat all? Not at all. Worst for now. This week is toughupsets. I'll give it to curtis. Do you have one for us?I mentioned it before and I'm going to say it again. Washington's a sneakychance to bit. The seals a match up very well, I think youcan feel like if I can get themselves in Russell's face mate, who knowswhat might happen. So that's not gonna lie. That's great value. I'mpretty sure I'll paying three bucks and it's in Washington. I didn't get it. Everyone's like on their beam wagon, but the odds just dance showing it. Like last week I mentioned that they were on dogs against the forty ninersand I actually pick them in the spread and it got me up. Butmy upset of the week is I mentioned earli. I think the eagles arewinning out from here, and that means...

...they will be beating the Arizona cardinalsthis week. The cardinals are a dollar thirty four favorites, or minus twohundred and ninety four, whatever that is, even get America olds. But yeah, the cardinals dispatched the giants, but before that they had lost fourin a row, including a loss to the Patriots. The Eagles have beenpretty bad all year, but they never get blown out, so I reckon. They've got that foundation there and I think hurts providing a bit of anoffensive spark and get them over the line. They put up twenty four against theSaints Defense, who is arguably the number one in the COMP. AndYeah, hurts could be a hit and miss player, especially given it soearly in his career. But yeah, I'm popping on. Why not?I'm not really sure why the cardinals paying adult thirty four, to be honest. But yeah, I'm back in in Philly all board. I've actually gotkind of Philly colors on here, so get around me, lads. Orright game spread, curd, I don't know if you've got this, butwe'll get your opinions on ours if you haven't peeched. What game spread?So you liking here. Yeah, so I've got three guarantees here. FIRSTUP, Detroit plus ten and a half against the titans. DETROIT, I'mnot that bad ever since they got the new coach. They beat the bearsand got within seven against the packers. Cartons aren't as good as the packersand they've got ten point, five points handicap. So not sure why it'sthat big. To be honest enough, back them in last week and itgot me the DUB. So yeah, can't and that was against a betterteam. Exactly. Can't see why not. What else you got me? I'llgo after you because I've had bulk once again. So next up,gymn plus four and a half against the browns. Bar last week, theythe giants, always make it close. So even if they don't get up, I could see them coming within four and a half points. And lastly, Miami minus two and a half against the Patriots. This is a surething in my opinion. Cannot see the Patriots beating the dolphins and all theyneed to do is win by three points. Pop on it. Yeah, Idon't know what to think about the Patriots because they beat the cardinals andthen they smash charges, but then they got destroyed last week, so I'ma bit scared to betting and some bee. I've got the dolphins at minus twopoint five as well. I've also got the packers and minus eight pointfive. I don't usually get around a favorite, but I think anything underten for the packers is pretty solid value. Chiefs, minus three point five houragainst the Saints Defense, but yeah, still back them in just because it'sthe chiefs. And then the eagles, of plus six point five. ObviouslyI think they're winning, so I think the school be within that margin. And then I've gone for two blowouts that I think might not be thatbig, but the Jags at plus thirteen point five and the jets of plusseventeen. They're pretty large. Seventeen, yes, Christ, they're pretty largenumbers. And we've seen, like I've pretty much bet on those two everyevery week and I think it's worked all but every week except for last.So you know, I can't see what that can't get up again, orat least one of them. We've been pretty successful as well. So getaround us, lads, or right time for some stap predictions. Kurt,who's going to have more passing yards? True, Biscay against the vikings,or cousins against the bears? Cousins pilch. Yeah, come in your cousins,rushing yards, kurt swift and Peterson combined versus the times, or Henryversus the lions and reverse of mines pilled. Yeah, Henry, all right,take away and go for pay fifty. Yeah, actually could, to behonest, that's kind of day you can put yeah, Hou isn't it? Boys? So just yeah, yeah, put some money on that. Yeah, it was probably not a market. It's probably not a betting thing becausethe awesome had just take Henry's overs...

...for us. Yeah, takeaways.Who's going to force some more turnovers? The Patriots or the dolphins playing againsteach other? If you dolphins, dolphins hunting bills. Yeah, defense hasbeen on a tear. Who's going to have more receptions? Bet carful McLarenonce again versing each other? More receptions? Yeah, not. Not. Yeah, it's just receptions. That's a sorcy one, because by the lasttwo weeks mcclaren's reception beast and mat calf the yards beast manager. McLaren puttinga Cla yeah, my McLaren has been disgusting the last two weeks. ButI'm going to go mcclaren because seahawks past it. It's improved but it's stilllike it's not elate, so he'll get it done total. Yeah, it'sfrom scrimmage. Kurt, JK Dobbins or James Robinson. They're playing each otherup. Yeah, yeah, it would be James Robinson, just pure becauseJK Dobbins has to compete with Edwards, I think. Yes, but ata pure talent I'm going to back JK DOBB is a better running back thenRobinson, but Robinson will have more yards. Source Awsome toe out. Yeah,definitely Robinson for scrimmage yards. All right. And finally, overall undersWiltari kill break sixty yards against the saints. Over their players going to tear themapart. Or, to be fair, over sixty s are really tearing toparty standard. All right, and then I'll quickly get your quick firepicks on the Games we haven't mentioned. There's actually quite a few. KurtThursday nights game La chargers versus the raiders. I'm back the rays. PILCH.Yeah, riders, bills, broncos was probably it will. I'll tryand steer clear of those ones, but forty nine is cowboys. Do wethink the cowboys are a chance there? No, I don't think they're achance. Sir. I'll be backing in minds right, hy most at threehundred yards. You've been in shocking form, though. But Vikings, bears,do we got that one big game be playoff implications vikings? It's atough get. Like that's a tough game to pick. I'm going to gothe Vikings as well, just because I put the Bible playoff bracket. ButI wouldn't be surprised if the bands get something done that the day rockings.I was a late it. Yeah, it's pretty good. Or I've talkedabout enough once against some fantasy bus from pilge. But will just get thatone. Philly or Arisna, worst call ever heard. But anyway, theArizona cardinals. I'M gonna back in Philly. Yeah, Nice. I don't knowwhat's gone on with the schedule this week. It's like twelve games atfive am. There's only four games that aren't that. It's Sunday games thisweek.
