NFC South QB notes -

Jameis is a most curious physical specimen. Loads of arm talent but almost no lower body agility or athleticism. Clumsy legs. It's painful to watch his footwork when the pocket gets messy...and painful to watch him get injured when he decides to scramble past the line of scrimmage.

Sam Darnold decided to try the Ryan Tannehill tough guy approach to quarterbacking and ended up in the blue medical tent.

Matt Ryan regained his footing this season after a couple of games and was doing much better in Arthur Smith's offense than he did last year in Dirk Koetter's offense. But now almost halfway through the season he's starting to look like he did last year. Holds the ball, arm looks tired, ball velocity has decreased, accuracy diminished. They have to find the next guy.

At some point, Tom Brady is going to have to tell his teammates that he'll be damned if he wants to keep playing on such a heavily penalized team. It's absurd how undisciplined the Bucs are. And poorly coached about the current limits of unflagged, allowable play.

Yesterday was the first since *1999* that the Hurricanes, Panthers, and Hornets have won on the same day.
