New York Giants: Give Daboll Coach of the Year Now

Brain Daboll deserves the coach of the year award now, after Sunday’s win over the Packers in London, and getting this pitiful New York Giants team to not only above .500 but in the mix for their division with an injured Daniel Jones and a depleted roster.

Change Needed In Pittsburgh?

Kenny Pickett’s starting debut didn’t exactly go the best, as the Steelers got absolutely smashed against the Buffalo Bills and Pickett has yet to throw his first NFL touchdown. It was an ugly game for Pittsburgh, but that was expected when they were two-touchdown underdogs. Kenny Pickett’s baptism by inferno continues as the Steelers take on the Buccaneers next week.

OverRhuled In Carolina

Bye-bye Matt Rhule. After an incredibly disappointing start to the season, Matt Rhule was fired less than three years into his seven-year contract. Panthers owner David Tepper has proven to be incredibly impatient, which is the wrong mindset to have when the Panthers are the team you bought.

Zach Wilson Looks Legit

This Jets team has looked very good with Zach Wilson returning from injury. They have performed well against two very well-coached defenses in the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins, and while the Joe Flacco experience was fun for a little while, Zach Wilson is without a doubt the best quarterback on this roster. A year-two jump is looking very likely for Wilson.

49ers: They Are Who We Thought They Were!

The 49ers are back on track with Jimmy Garoppolo. After winning two straight, the 49ers are playing like they always have with Jimmy Garoppolo. A strong running game and Jimmy distributing the ball to his Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk en route to a big win. The 49ers made it to the NFC Championship Game with Garoppolo seemingly wanting to lose, they can do it again if Garoppolo keeps playing like he did on Sunday.
