    You want RB problems! Imagine having the 2nd overall pick and selecting a RB who won’t play a single snap for you this entire season. I will get 0 points from Bell. And he’s the name of my frickin team!

    Topical TALKING POINTS ;)

    I’m not sure who you’ve been talking to, because that seems a view from a very small sample size. Clough took over when we were way down the league after a calamatious Prem season the year before. We had a bloated expensive squad that wasn’t performing in the league and Nigel came in to steady things. Most people saw that and thought it was a good decision or at least worth a go. Nigel took 4 seasons to get us in the top half of the table. That’s an awfully long time to do anything, regardless of the clubs situation. Frank has come in fresh of lots of seasons battling at the right end but to a team that doesn’t have an identity. He has quickly gone about changing that. So much so that if our loan players leave, we will be able to go and find a player who fits our system to try and make sure there’s a consistency. And he’s doing a good job at it so far! This is a weird time to try and be smug. We all support Derby and have all endured the ups and downs. Sure we don’t agree on things and have opinions on manager and players. But why try and rub others faces in it? At least do a better job of it if that’s your plan

    How many other people were in for the Redskins D...? Sounds like at least 2 of us who didn’t get them, and the team that did already has the Vikings D!

    While I completely agree with you, it is madness but there is some solid reasoning: he’s the wrong side of 30, got 2 years left on a big contract and is completely 1 dimensional. He is 1 of the best at stopping the run but that is about it. I’m less bothered about Eli Apple @SaintRam hope he does well for you but he was a negative connotation of his name in New Jersey. A bad apple who never showed his 1st round promise or grading. The Giants are following the worrying trend that the Raiders have set by having a fire sale...the difference is that Oakland have 3 1st round picks, and we have an extra 4th and 5th...

    Good game, at least good 2nd half, despite the same old flaws making it impossible for the Giants to win. @David remember that sacking Manning is not a hard feat at the minute, our Oline is a revolving door. Now in place to get the number 1 pick in next years draft...

    Smells like Team Spirit

    Apologies. I didn’t mean we were flat on Saturday, more that Sheff Utd started with a style and purpose that we’ve seen teams have against us. No problem about our performance. It was more an observation about us playing teams in form where they look good and we don’t. And it’s happened a lot. I end up sitting there thinking ‘why don’t we play football like that? What football do we play?’ You’re going back to Mac1 the last time we had an attractive and effective style

    Smells like Team Spirit

    This is key and such a change from the past couple of years. Whenever I’ve seen us play an in form team recently, I’ve been slightly envious of the way their team seem to have a system and style while Derby look a bit flat. Yesterday started similarly, as Sheff Utd played first half with a pace and lovely quick passing moves that got the ball up the pitch quickly time and again. Yet we were trying to play too, and as their legs started to go, we carried on and took the momentum of the match. Very pleased, and hope we continue to build every match throughout the season

    Watched the highlights this morning before checking how our matchup had ended. Got very nervous when Scantling started catching some of those long throws. In the end, a good matchup

    NFL 18/19

    This is a very good, brief summary of an NFL game. You could go into a lot of detail, but to understand the basics, this will do. The highlighted bit is only but I’d point out, teams now are more likely to try a range of big plays on first down. Run first teams may run, but 2018 NFL is more about passing and play action, where creative OC’s think up plays to get down the field. There are still teams that run on first and second down, but these teams are often viewed as prehistoric - think Pearson playing his style of 442 football against any of the modern style coaches (Pep, Klopp in Prem, Wolves/Leeds in Champ).
