Daily Commentary 12/23 SAT (6:19pmET)

6:12pmET: Jared Goff v. Case Keenum v. Tom Brady Last 7 weeks...

TD passes (starting with 7 games ago up to current)...

4-3-0-2-2-2-2 = (2.1 per) Goff

1-3-3-4-0-1-1 = (1.9 per) Brady

2-4-1-2-2-2-2 = (2.1 per) Keenum

Passing Yards...

311-355-225-354-220-199-120 = (254.9) Goff

333-266-340-227-258-233-298 = (279.3) Brady

298-304-280-282-227-280-236 = (272.4) Keenum

3:57pmET: Week 16 Projections updated.

Waiting to see what's the game-time report from Green Bay to see how confident I would be on Case Keenum today. Tough call with it so cold there.

2:33pmET: I am believing more and more that Tyron Smith will either 'not play' or will be one of those 'tries' and 5-15 snaps in he's done. Seriously effects Dak.

2:26pmET: Watch MIN-GB for Keenum and Diggs if Damarious Randall ends up out.

12:49pmET: FYI, it is raining pretty hard in Baltimore right now. That game is going to be a sloppy mess.

Coach of the Year Candidates (for me)...

Thinking about it today. The short list of possibilities In no particular order):

Doug Marrone, Jacksonville

Stone Cold Sean McDermott, Buffalo

Adam Gase, Miami (if they get to the wild-card)

Doug Pederson, Philadelphia

Mike Zimmer, Minnesota

Sean McVay, LA Rams

Dan Quinn, Atlanta

Sean Payton, New Orleans

Ron Rivera, Carolina

Wow, quite a year for NFL Head Coaches.

Coaches to be fired at season's end: John Fox, Dirk Koetter, Chuck Pagano, Hue Jackson, Mike Mularkey (if they don't make the playoffs), Marvin Lewis (leaving), Ben McAdoo (already gone)

Coaches who should be fired but won't be: Bruce Arians, Mike McCarthy, Vance Joseph, Jack Del Rio

Weather Check...

-- IND at BAL...light rain (50% chance), 16 MPH winds...great news (not) for those who have Justin Tucker today! You still have to count on the Greek god of kicking no matter what.

-- MIN at GB...10-15 degrees, feels like zero. Ouch. I know they have heaters under the turf, but it's going to be quite cold the higher up from the surface.

-- DET at CIN...improving. Snow not likely now. 35-40 degrees.

-- CLE at CHI...light snow, small chance...20-25 degrees, feels like 15 degrees.

-- MIA at KC...25-30, feels like 15-20.

Random Thoughts...

-- If the Vikings lose tonight...Philly has nothing to play for on MNF.

-- I made the pitch for Jimmy Garoppolo last week because the Titans have been smoked by any good+ QB they've faced...not one exception. Garoppolo then dropped 381 yards on the Titans. This week...the great Jared Goff faces Tennessee with LeShaun Sims (starting CB) and Logan Ryan (starting slot CB) is 50-50 to play. 

How is Goff not dropping at least 250+ and 2 TDs?

Goff passing TDs in a game the past 7 weeks...4-3-0-2-2-2-2 (2.1 per game). The zero was against the Vikings...2.5 per game ignoring the Vikings game.

-- Dallas LT Tyron Smith 'Game-time decision' is frightening on so many levels...for Dak, Elliott, gamblers going with Dallas...
