Coach Talk
The Underdogs
You know what, The Underdogs, we do certainly respect the confidence. It's a bold move to play, not one, but TWO starters with zero points (Nick Kwiatkoski and Cyrus Jones), while still getting the W. We just ask you to please keep those flashy shenanigans to the regular season. Can you imagine how silly we'd look if we let it happen in the playoffs?
El Perro Reventador
We were just taking it easy so our guys could dominate in next week, right? The seven starting offensive position players (four WRs, two RBs, one TE) on El Perro Reventador combined to record 403 yards and just two touchdowns in Week 8. Our opposition's skill players definitely outperformed us by logging 745 yards and six scores.
