NFL 2019 Week 11 The good, the bad, and the fugly

Just so you know I am calling it right now for week 11. I am calling the fugly no matter what happens.

THE FUGLY

It is 6:28 mountain time Friday November 15 and I am calling the FUGLY regardless of what happens the rest of week 11.

MYLES GARRETT get the F*&# out of here. Are you kidding me? Eight seconds left in the game. Your team won. Now your team has lost…its best defensive player (calling it), respect, and most importantly the chance to bask in the win against division rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

That’s just stupid fugly!

THE BAD

I really want Vance Joseph to succeed. I think he got a sucky deal in Denver. I mean he is gone and John Elway is still there. Joseph is a good defensive coach. Unfortunately, his defense in Arizona is not attesting to that statement.

It is crazy that everyone (myself included) was worried about new head coach Kliff Kingsbury and first round draft choice Kyler Murray. They are doing fine. It is the seasoned defensive coordinator Joseph that is failing Arizona. And there is no better example than Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers in the last minutes of the game. JUST DON’T LET THEM SCORE A TOUCHDOWN. What does the defense do? Let the 49ers score a touchdown. No one in the middle of the field. Having your sack specialist in pass coverage. It is defensive schemes that are bad. And that bad isn’t indicative of who the Cardinals are and what Joseph can do.

THE GOOD

There were a lot of good performances on last given Sunday, including Thomas Davis and Shelby Harris, but this good goes to Tyrann Mathieu and the Kansas City Chiefs defense.

Maybe because the game is fresh on the mind. Or perhaps it is because he spent so much time disrupting the passing game of Philip Rivers and the Chargers. Mathieu had eight total tackles and one interception (should have been two). Rivers threw four interceptions, including one to defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi. Safety Daniel Sorensen also had eight tackles and an interception. Defensive end Frank Clark, who spent a lot of time chatting with Rivers, finished the game with two tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, and a tip ball that led to an interception.

The Chiefs defense was good, albeit helped by a really bad Rivers performance. But hey they were good.
