Coach Talk
The Mad Scientist
Earning the win is most important, The Mad Scientist, but we also know of one spot where we should improve as a team... our wide receivers were significantly outmatched this past week. Held back by Michael Thomas (17 total yards, no TDs) and Odell Beckham Jr. (22 yards, no TDs), our three WRs combined for just 14 points in Week 1. The starting wideouts for The Placebo Arm showed us how it's supposed to be done by putting up a score of 36.9. We need to sweet-talk the offensive coordinator to get some more targets in Week 2!
The Placebo Arm
With four catches on just five targets this past week, the starting RBs for The Placebo Arm clearly need to investigate why their quarterbacks are giving them the cold shoulder.
