CFB Takeaways Week 6

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Dan: Georgia will give Bama a run for their money in the SEC Championship.

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac-12

Dan: The Washington and Washington State game at the end of the year might be the biggest game in the history of Cougar football.

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC + ND

Jason: Once Francois went down, FSU’s chances of contending were slim to none. It’s taken 6 weeks for people to realize.

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Dan: Nobody believed me that Michigan wouldn’t be good this year with only 5 returning starters. I’ll keep my prediction at 8-4.

Jason: Michigan State is yet to play their best football.

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

NFL Takeaways Week 4

Biggest Takeaway in the AFC East

Jason- Josh McCown will continue to put the Jets in games where they have a chance to win games. That’s what he does… He’s been doing it since Chicago

Dan- Jay Cutler should’ve never come out of retirement.

Dylan- The Bills might just be for real- as long as they have enough offense they should be able to compete for a playoff spot.

Zach- The Patriots defense is a serious problem.

Biggest Takeaway in the AFC North

Jason- Deshone Kizer is playing BAD football right now… he needs to turn it around before they bench him for good and he is just another Cleveland QB

Dan- Cincy is looking a lot better than we thought. Two close losses to 2 very solid teams in Houston and Green Bay and a blowout over a lowly rival.

Dylan- Man the Ravens’ offense is bad. Their defense will have to carry them if they want to see the playoffs.

Zach- Cincy…just because you beat the Browns does not mean you are good. A real test will be next against the Bills.

Biggest Takeaway in the AFC South

Jason- The Colts defense is horrible. Whether or not Andrew Luck comes back in the near future, it can’t save their season.

Dan- Tennessee is going to need Mariota if they want a shot at the division.

Dylan- This is the most inconsistent division of all time. Jags nearly put up 50 in London and then lose to the Jets? Texans are embarrassed by the Jags and then put up 57 on the Titans? (By the way Jason the Colts have had much worse defenses, if Andrew Luck is at full strength soon, the way this division is playing the Colts can still compete)

Zach- I knew Deshaun Watson would be good in the future…but not this good this quick.

Biggest Takeaway in the AFC West

Jason- The Raiders playoff hopes are slim to none. They better pray for an injury. Also Dan… let’s not get carried away

Dan- Hopefully Derek Carr doesn’t turn into the next Andrew Luck.

Dylan- LET’S QUIT OVERREACTING! The Chiefs always get off to a fast start and the Raiders will be fine. This division will come down to the wire.

Zach- Alex Smith is the best QB in the AFC West…never thought I would say that.

Biggest Takeaway in the NFC East

Jason- The Cowboys had a bad week, they are still the clear favorites to win the division

Dan- The two most unexpected winless teams play next week and it will prove almost nothing.

Dylan- The tides have turned. This division is now controlled by the Eagles, and maybe the Redskins too.

Zach- The NFC East is the Eagles’ to lose.

Biggest Takeaway in the NFC North

Jason- Minnesota has no shot at the playoffs without Dalvin Cook or a miracle.

Dan- Minnesota needs to get healthy or else they will have no shot at the playoffs.

Dylan- The Lions and Packers are rolling, but the Vikes and Bears seasons are probably done.

Zach- It’s about time the Bears fire up Mitchell Trubisky for next week. Bring on the future.

Biggest Takeaway in the NFC South

Jason- The Saints surprised me… still not a believer yet

Dan- There are A LOT of inconsistent teams in the NFL this year, but Carolina might be the worst.

Dylan- The Panthers win was a fluke. They’ll be under .500 by November.

Zach- Cam Newton had a good week…but it doesn’t change the fact that he’s an average starting quarterback in the NFL right now.

Biggest Takeaway in the NFC West

Jason- The Rams was a team I was wrong on. This offense is scary

Dan- As Gurley takes more of a Leveon Bell type roll he becomes more and more dangerous.

Dylan- Rams vs. Seahawks this week! The winner is the clear division favorite.

Zach- Jared Goff is the real deal. Another lesson to not judge a QB after his rookie season.

Player of the Week

Jason- Cam Newton

Dan- Deshaun Watson

Dylan- Greg Zuerlein

Zach- Cam Newton

Surprise Player of the Week

Jason- Deshaun Watson

Dan- Tyler Kroft

Dylan- Deshaun Watson

Zach- Deshaun Watson

Bold Prediction

Jason- The Chiefs win the division by a 4 game margin.

Dan- Green Bay finishes with the best record in the league.

Dylan- Draft order:

  1. Niners
  2. Browns
  3. Bears
  4. Dolphins
  5. Chargers

Zach- After week 8, the Dolphins bench Jay Cutler and insert Matt Moore into the lineup.

College Football Takeaways Week 5

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Dan: Ed Orgeron was not fit for the job.

Jason: Nick Fitzgerald and the Mississippi State Bulldogs were good for one week… against a bad LSU team

Zach: Texas A&M is quietly 4-1, and their one loss was a game they easily should have won were it not for the heroics of Chosen Rosen.

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac-12

Dan: Is Sam Darnold overrated? If he keeps committing turnovers then yes.

Jason: Josh Rosen is an elite talent. He continuously carries a mediocre team to wins

Zach: Luke Falk is a legitimate Heisman contender.

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

Dan: It looks like Kansas is Baylor’s only chance for a win this year.

Jason: The talent gap is HUGE.

Zach: Mason Rudolph rebounded extremely well to cement his spot as one of the Heisman favorites.

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC + ND

Dan: Josh Adams is the most underrated player in the country.

Jason: Notre Dame needs to win a game against a ranked team before I can look at them realistically as a contender

Zach: Brandon Wimbush NEEDS to pass the ball a lot better and not be so heavily reliant on his amazing running ability. If not, Notre Dame does not stand a great chance against USC in 3 weeks.

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Dan: At least 3 or 4 one loss teams will come out of the Big Ten.

Jason: Brian Lewerke has been unbelievably inconsistent this year. This week we will see what he is all about.

Zach: Although promising after a strong week 1 against Ohio State, Richard Lagow is struggling and should not be the starter for Indiana.

Player of the Week

Dan: Jordan Chunn

Jason: Saquon Barkley

Zach: Bryce Love

Surprise Player of the Week

Dan: Malik Davis

Jason: Luke Falk

Zach: Max Browne

Bold Prediction for the Season

Dan: With so many weak schedules there will be at least two undefeated power five teams along with four other one loss teams.

Jason: LSU and Mississippi State fail to make a bowl game.

Zach: Florida State will finish with 7 losses this year.
