A lot has been made about the #Rams "soft" zone coverage & how it has led to struggles in the 1st half of the season

Let's take a look...

#ArtofX x #NFL
First, let's put some context to this:

The #Rams are a Cover 3 based defense

They run a variation of Cover 3 on about 59% of their snaps

Cover 3, played w/ ZN CBs can leave a defense susceptible to underneath throws, especially to the outside flats

#ArtofX x #NFL ⤵️
In reality, the #Rams' D is not playing *that* poorly

@fboutsiders has them w/ a DVOA that ranks 13th overall, 4th against the run, & 19th against the pass

According to @espn, LAR is 3rd in Pass rush win rate

👉🏻 So, yes, coverage *is* the issue

Ironing out kinks in the viz but here are #Chiefs vs #Cardinals receiving stats to tide you over.

Juju looks promsing, MVS isn't a thing but playing over Hardman in 2 WR sets, don't worry about Skyy.

Hollywood will be fine, Ertz part time coming off injury, idk about Dortch.
#Steelers @ @Bengals

Diontae will be fine, really strong Pat F showing, meh from Claypool and Pickens.

Chase is a star, prob don't care about Boyd even with Tee sidelined, even pre-Higgins injury it was firmly the Chase show.
Air yards data looking a bit suspect for a few teams, going to pause for now

A couple of years ago I published a weekly matchups thread with charts for each game, and this year I'm bringing it back! While I'll normally share on Thursdays, I'm so excited for Week 1 to start that I'm sharing this week's today!

Let's have a great season, everyone! 🏈
Before I start, here's a description of the 3 charts:
1. Comparing OFF vs. DEF key stat rankings
2. Player distribution of 2021/22 DK points
3. Player % of team rushing/receiving expected fpts

In addition to these charts, I'll also include one stat nugget relevant to that game!
#Bills @ #Rams (+2.5)
Game total: 52
BUF implied team total: 27.25
LA implied team total: 24.75
Key stat: Buffalo's defensive pass EPA/play went from -0.112 (2nd) with Tre'Davious White (weeks 1-12) to 0.035 (15th) without him (weeks 13-20). He's out Thursday night.

🏖️🏄‍♀️🌴Sommer, Sonne, Urlaubszeit: Heute arbeite ich an einem Impuls für @S4F_Kassel zum Thema #NachhaltigReisen und dachte, ich lasse euch daran teilhaben. Ein🧵voller Ideen (plus ein paar persönlichen Erfahrungen und vielen hübschen Bildern)📸 (1/n) A person sitting on a beam ...
(2/n) Was bedeutet es eigentlich, "nachhaltig" zu reisen? Für mich fällt darunter weit mehr, als nur klimaneutral von A nach B zu kommen. Wem schade oder nutze ich ggf. mit meiner Reise? Wovon profitiere ich - und kann ich u.U. was zurückgeben?
(3/n) Reisen zu können, ist ein unglaubliches Privileg (und Fernreisen sowieso). Wusstet ihr z.B. dass ihr mit einem dt. Reisepass visumsfrei in 190 Länder reisen könnt? Das ist Platz 3 auf der Weltrangliste…

Over the next week I will be recapping my overall thoughts on what every team did in the 2022 #NFLDraft.

Today I will start with the NFC West and cover the @AZCardinals, @RamsNFL, @49ers and @Seahawks
the @AZCardinals recap

2 (55) TE Trey McBride
3 (87) EDGE Cam Thomas
3 (100) Edge Myjai Sanders
6 (201) RB Keaontay Ingram
6 (215) OG Lecitus Smith
7 (244) CB Christian Matthew
7 (256) LB Jesse Luketa
7 (257) OG Marquis Hayes

fav pick: Thomas
value pick: Luketa
? pick: McBride
draft haul has to include trading for M Brown giving them explosive speed WR they need with loss of Kirk & suspension of Nuk. I think they had more pressing needs than TE after giving Ertz a new 3 yr deal. Think Thomas can become starter & Luketa could have went early 4th

** Post Week 10 // Pre-Week 11 Thought Dump **

Coming off another wild week of upsets.

Among NFL best records:

8-2 #Titans have lost to 2-7 #Jets
7-2 #Cowboys to 5-5 #Broncos
7-3 #Rams to 4-5 #49ers
6-3 #Bills to 2-7 #Jaguars
6-3 #Bucs to 3-6 #WFT
6-3 #Ravens to 3-7 #Dolphins
Random Takes & Notes:

- Standing by Rhamondre Stevenson as #Patriots best RB with Wk 10 as confirmation bias
- Rashod Bateman hasn’t hurt Marquise Brown whatsoever; The Real Hollywood Avging 13 targets since Bateman’s return
- Jeff Wilson SZN if Eli Mitchell (finger) sits v Jags
- Josh Allen used play action on 57% of Week 10 drops — nearly 2x the highest rate of any team all last year. He destroyed, of course
- #Bills backfield has devolved into 3-way RBBC. Avoid
- Long as #Bears keep letting Justin Fields run, he’ll produce. Back2Back top-10 FF starts

** Post-Week 7 Review // Pre-Week 8 #fantasyfootball Lookahead Thread **

Another thought dump rather than
Position-by-Position Rundown. Feel this format may be less organized but more efficient.
* Justin Fields Dream is officially dead
* Sounds strange but Allen Rob’s best hope = Andy Dalton
* Painful but still buying low on Cal Ridley as long as he keeps getting 10 tgts/game. Bye also out of way
* Somehow, ARodgers has been *better* in box score w/o DAdams last 3 years
* Tonyan & RCobb looking like must-starts on TNF as Covid wipes out #Packers top pass catchers
* Jalen Hurts drafters need a QB2 handy as benching rumors heat up. Suggestion: Danny Dimes
* Tyler Higbee peripheral usage screams buy buy buy. #Rams featuring him in scoring position

Washington, Arizona, Indianapolis and Los Angeles Chargers remain under 50% vaccination for COVID-19 as of today, per a source familiar with the NFL’s vaccination rates. Pittsburgh, Miami, Carolina & Denver have highest rates & are among 7 teams with at least 85% vaccinated.
Teams on the lower end of the vaccination chart face potential competitive disadvantages, especially because the #NFL doesn’t plan to cancel any games this season, per my source. Story upcoming.

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

Continue thread.🔽 ImageImage
These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

For the first two weeks, the #49ers wore the standard set.

1/ #KanyeConJob UPDATE

The attorneys for @kanyewest filed his response to the two challenges filed against him at the end of last week.

It is a treasure trove of jaw-dropping arguments.

Long thread coming ...…
2/ #KanyeConJob UPDATE

Let's start with the fact it claims the "Kany West campaign represents a uniting, inspiring and faith-based vision that is successfully motivating disenfranchised and previously unengaged voters to participate in the political process."
3/ #KanyeConJob UPDATE

It would be funny if it weren't so insulting.

Obviously the characterization of the campaign is laughable.

But the characterization of #Wisconsin voters - that they would be otherwise "disenfranchised" or "unengaged" - is disrespectful and untrue.

#Cowboys WR Amari Cooper says he and a number of offensive players have been working out pretty consistently together to get their timing right with QB Dak Prescott. Recently those workouts have been at Prescott's who just had a football field constructed at his home.
Cooper called the CeeDee Lamb pickup "great" and in working out with him said he was a "quick learner" and "fundamentally sound" Said with he and Michael Gallup going for 1k last year the expectation this year is 3k between them all.
Cooper said this offseason and Phase 1 hasn't been weird because he's a person that's always been able to adapt to any situation.

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

LOTS of trades factored in. Summary of them in the thread below.

✭ A thread. ✭

Based on discussions I’ve had w/ sources keyed into the team’s thought process and others with knowledge of the talks, this is my understanding of the latest re: #Cowboys dialogue w/ Dak Prescott...

Including echoes of my own previous reports on the situation:
The team never wanted to invoke the franchise tag, and still don’t, but will as a placeholder if need be — giving them until mid-July to work out an extension with the franchise QB.

One sticking point is the team wants a longer termed deal beyond four or five years.. (cont.)
But Prescott wants financial concessions to make that worth accepting, seeing as he might not then be able to land one more big money reup under the new CBA (assuming it lands as expected).

Otherwise, he’d take the more traditional 4-5 year agreement... (cont’d)...

A brief #Cowboys coaching search thread...
1. The coaching search interviews are 100-percent Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones driven. This process won't be broad "group think" by any means and it's ultimately going to come down to how candidates have fared answering questions for Jerry and Stephen.
2. Pliability on the coaching staff is going to be a plus for some candidates. If you're a guy like Mike McCarthy or Marvin Lewis, you may very well need to retain four offensive coaches: OC Kellen Moore, OL coach Marc Colombo, QBs coach Jon Kitna and RBs coach Gary Brown.

Let's take a look at the McGovern pick in context. In 2016 the #Cowboys had an *actual* top-level line. They had six starting caliber OL in Smith-Leary-Fred-Martin and Free, with La'el in reserve. When Free wobbled, Collins could spell him. When Leary got dinged for a (1)
