Sunday December 6th was an eventful one in the NFL. While it added some clarity for playoff races, other teams showed real weaknesses that could come back to haunt them in the playoffs or the chance to even make it. So here is your Monday Moments for 12.7.20
400 career TD's faster than anyone has ever done it, 193 games. Also has thrown for 35 TD's in 5 different seasons, 1st player in NFL history to have more than 4 such seasons. The man is somehow breaking these records and having the quietest MVP type season I can remember. The main focus is how many off angle throws Mahomes made or what commentator said what dumb thing this week and there goes A-rod just putting up stupid numbers each week while no one notices. Admittedly as a Steelers fan I have always loathed Rodgers but seeing him on The Pat McAfee show on his normal Tuesday hit, I have gained a huge chunk of respect for him and realize his coldness with the media is based on being misquoted and taken out of context and not him actually being the jerk he's made out to be. Rather than include a clip of the game, which he was excellent in, I am including a clip from one of the best interviews he's done on Pat's show to get a better idea of the type of dude he is.
Seattle Seahawks/New York Giants
Wasn't sure exactly which side to go with on this so I just took the game overall. Starting with the Seahawks, what is going on with "Mr. Unlimited"? Russ was a clear MVP winner after 5 weeks and has seen the MVP slip away as well as possibly his chance to make something happen in the playoffs. The defense wasn't playing great to begin with but letting Russ cook was working and they were dominant on offense. Now the D is still really bad and without Russ getting 400yds/4TDs/No turnovers the entire team looks lost.
Which brings us to the other side of this game which is the Joe Judge led, suddenly looking well put together defensive team in the New York Giants. They still have a long way to go to be considered good, but the defense has looked impressive lately and they frustrated the Seahawks all day. Not to mention in the cesspool that is the NFC East, they hold the lead over Washington and could make a real run at the playoffs after looking like one of the worst teams in the league early on. By far a non-MVP caliber performance for either but the interesting storylines on both sides put it in MVP Moments this week.
The New York Jets - aka how not to cover a game ending hail mary.
See the Terrible. Stupid. Risky. Ballsy. Many different ways to look at the way the Jets decided to handle the end of their game vs the Raiders but no matter what you think of the call they made, the execution was awful. I've seen many different stats thrown around about how bad of an idea it is to send 7/8 guys against a hail mary and how little that happens in the past 15 years of the NFL so we'll just say that no one does it. Either cover 4 or cover 3, keep everyone in front of you and if the ball goes up, high point it and slap it down, don't even try for the INT. Well the Jets decided that they knew better than everyone and sent 8, left a DB that had been burnt the play before, 1on1 vs Henry Ruggs (who ran a 4.27 forty and by all accounts is faster than that) and got torched for a walk off TD. Now this as stated above is a bad strategy by all accounts and is embarrassing in itself, but the other part I'm not seeing mentioned as much is this: if you send 8, how do you not get to the QB or at least affect him enough to make the throw miss? It's one thing to buck the trend and think differently but the entire point of sending 8 is to get to the QB and they didn't even do that which is even worse to me. So this begs the inevitable question, was it intentional to lose the game and keep the Jets as the front runner in the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes? Really seems that way with the decision and lack of execution. See the link for the whole final sequence and tell me what you think.
Well with the holiday, the games being pushed around like a skinny 6th grader, and waiting to see the Monday night game, the 2nd installment of Monday Moments comes to you on this Tuesday, 1st of December
Not much else to say besides take a look at that stat line. That's what happens when you try to get after Mahomes and leave "Cheetah" in single coverage. Beyond dominant in the 1st half, the adjustment to play more coverage over the top slowed Hill down but then just contributed to the other guys on the team, namely Kelce, having a big day as well. Not sure if there is a game plan to stop the weapons on this team, go after Mahomes and he burns you for 70+ yard TDs, play zone and he'l pick you apart 8 yards at a time. Playoffs will tell but they look primed for another deep run.
Note to self: Don't try to get in the head of one of the most physically impressive WRs in the game (possibly ever) by talking trash about how he isn't on Megatron's level yet. Schwartz didn't figure that calling DK out in warmups would put a chip on his shoulder and it bit the Eagles Defense royally. While not as audacious a stat line as Tyreek Hill's, the physicality of some of the catches and run after made it clear that Metcalf came to play and wasn't having any of the talk about not being in Megatron territory yet.
This one is a reverse MVP due to the beyond embarrassing gaffes by the league this weekend. Between the still ongoing fiasco with the Steelers/Ravens game that looks more and more like the NFL trying to let Baltimore get healthy ahead of the big division game, and the lack of any competitive consideration for the Broncos being down all 4 QB's on the roster. Elway asked for an extra day to figure out some kind of game plan and was told to figure it out. Fully understanding that the NFL is doing everything it can to not only get this season in, but to avoid a Week 18 as well, I can be sympathetic to a very complex and nuanced problem. However in doing so, the ridiculous lack of consistency from team to team is impossible to ignore. Especially given the specific case of the Ravens whos strength coach intentionally was in the facility without a mask, and removed his contact tracing bracelet as well. NFL talks big about laying down punishment based on the factors involved in Covid outbreaks, but the Ravens intentionally violated protocol and are not being held to the same standard as the rest of the league.
Starting today through the end of the NFL season, each Monday we'll be breaking down a couple of the most MVP worthy plays, players, performances or anything else that went on worthy of MVP consideration.
Tough to argue with the level he plays on, week in and week out. The Raiders worked hard to come back and aided by the KC defense making some very dumb and timely penalties they climbed ahead late in the 4th quarter. But just as you don't ever give Brady, Peyton, Favre, Rodgers or Roethlisberger the ball with more than a minute and a timeout left, Ol Patty marched them right down the field. Calm, cool collected and dropped one to a wide open Travis Kelce for the go ahead TD. MVP worthy for sure.
CeeDee Lamb and Adam Thielen
Watching the CeeDee catch and thinking, "that might be the catch of the year" then only to see Thielen just be like hold my beer and put up one of the most ridiculous one handed, toe tap, corner of the end zone catches was insane. Granted both of these teams are heavily flawed and make no real threat to get into or make a push in the playoffs, it was still a really entertaining game and had 2 MVP worthy catches.
Minus the 12 year old looking haircut, it was yet another good week for AirBear. Looking more and more each week like the real deal and not just getting lucky, the Chargers may be competing for a while with the Bengals over who got the best QB in the 2020 draft. Now if they could just figure out the rest of the team around him, they might be able to turn these close games into wins and really shake up the AFC.
Honorable Mention - Pittsburgh Steelers
Nothing hidden behind the curtain here, We are big Steelers fans around the shop. However to ignore the 10-0 record, inching toward more complete performances, spreading the ball to whoever is hot, the defense getting better each week. It would be wrong not to acknowledge the undefeated and now improving Steelers. No clear cut best performance but all around looking like they mean business and are ready to make a real run in the playoffs.
We are proud to announce a private signing with the "Nigerian Nightmare" and KC Chiefs star Christian Okoye. Standing at 6ft 1in but going 250+ lbs and with blazing 4.45 speed, he stuck fear into defenses in the late 80s and early 90s.

EXCLUSIVE Aaron Donald, NFL Defensive Player of the Year Signing
For someone as accomplished and dominant at his craft as Aaron Donald is, he could afford to be a little cocky, but the fact that he isn't at all is what really makes him special.
We held an exclusive signing this past weekend with the NFL Defensive Player of the year and Pitt alumni and came away with even more respect for him than before.
Classy, humble and just an all around nice guy, he was beyond pleasant to be around, and made everyone in attendance feel welcome and part of the team. We are very lucky to have him signed to a 2 year deal for signatures and cannot wait to arrange the next signing event.
From the guys at MVP Authentics, a shout out to a real class act and great person as well as a world class player. We appreciate you and the way you handle your business, on and off the field.
Best of luck with the negotiations and here's to an even bigger and better year in 2018.
Oh and just because...H2P!!!
