Coach Talk
Pit Steelers (ZS)
Well, we do admire the confidence this past week, Pit Steelers (ZS). It's a bold move to deploy, not one, but TWO starters with zero points (JuJu Smith-Schuster and Eric Ebron), while still earning the W. Try that type of flashy, show-off stuff next week against Cleveland Browns and see what happens!
Dallas Cowboys
Well, we certainly can't whine about a lack of opportunities this week, can we? Our four pass-catchers (three WR, one TE) were targeted a grand total of 26 times in Week 6. With only 16 total receptions, that group may be showing signs of chemistry issues.
