Coach Talk
The Placebo Arm
Whoa, The Placebo Arm, you really made a statement to your leaguemates with this victory. Not only did you win by 18.64 points, you also jumped up a couple of places in the league standings. Nice job!
An Easy W
"Not seeing many looks" shouldn't really be an excuse this week for An Easy W. As a group, our pass-catching corps (three WR and one TE) were targeted a respectable 18 times in Week 2. Those players should participate in some additional timing drills with their QBs, considering they notched only 10 receptions.
