It's one week. Aaron Rodgers is probably not the worst QB in the league.

~That said~ if you are worried about things like accuracy for a QB this season, which is something you should always be concerned with, one week is as good as another to do an analysis.
For instance, my favorite QB is Josh Allen because he is so fun to watch. I love him *hugs*.

But if you want to say his accuracy issues Sunday were because of the o-line I'm not sure that's right. Steelers have a great defense, but the Bills were daring them to stop the pass.
Allen's off target rate was around league average yesterday, but he was inaccurate despite decent protection. Also the Bills more than doubled their rate of 4 WR sets from last year and didn't run nearly as much play action. They need to go back to mashing the easy buttons IMO.

49ers first three scripted plays (after the fumble) all with Harvard's Kyle Juszczyk doing jet motion

zone left - 11 yards
zone right - 9 yards
fake toss naked bootleg with Kittle leaking across the field, wide open - 23 yards.
actually motion on play 2 was not Juicecheck.
Whenever I watch Shanahan's stuff, especially when it works against like, the Lions, I get excited and start to question my priors. Then I remember this is the overriding philosophy driving it across the league

“No, it’s the testing that’s wrong”
1989 was the perhaps the best year of my life as a Bay Area sports fan, so I’m sure I was say “yeah! Fuck the drug testing!” while I huffed whippets and drove my car into random ditches

Skybox Schotty saw the truth from on high and tried to convert Pete. But the Sneaky One knows a run hater when he sees one. The defense must be sound. The defense. Must. Be. Sound.

It's time for a Jarvis Landry apologia coupled with a argument for why team level metrics like DVOA and NEP are inappropriate when doing player-level analysis. My condolences in advance. 1/?
The knock on Landry is that his yards per target number is low. Or that he is a 3 yard curl runner. Or that his DVOA is low.

But Jarvis doesn't, in the normal course of a game, choose what routes he runs. he doesn't choose when he's targeted.
The coach calls a play and Jarvis runs his route. He does his job the same way on 1st and 10 as he does it on 3rd and 6.

He runs his route, earns a target and then catches the ball. In fact he's done this more than anyone in the history of the NFL over his first 4 years.
