Tomorrow is a huge game for our WR’s. They’ve been called out as the problem with our offense. Some here disagree and have made some good points. Fortunately they’re wrong. If it was Andy or Patrick we would have a serious problem. It’s not them. Maybe adjusting the play calling and Patrick getting the ball out quicker will help a little bit, but that’s not what this team is. This team is about blowing up defenses, it’s what they do. These guys didn’t win two Championships by playing footsie with the opponents. These receivers need to step it up and stop playing scared. That’s right, they’re playing scared. They need to put on their big boy pants and start playing like men instead of little girls.

Barring a miracle second half season by someone (undefeated and clearly carrying their team with great TD stats), we have five viable candidates.

Tua needs stats that are far above the others to win. He has some of the best skill players but his team has been unable to win against quality opponents.

The Monday Night showdown between Mahomes and Hurts is huge. If one clearly outplays the other, he would become the MVP favorite. A great game by both gives a small advantage to the one that wins the game, and a subpar game by both opens the door for someone else to win.

Stroud is 5-4. If he can go 6-2 the rest of the way and maintain decent stats, he could be the one who can overtake the front runners. He is playing a last place schedule.

To me, Lamar is a longshot. The Ravens have a powerful defense and a dynamic run game. Lamar has good but not great stats. A great finish by the Ravens still makes him a viable candidate, but the others ahead of him would have to falter.

Do not throw out Dak to me – padding your stats against teams like the Giants does not change the fact that he comes up short in the big moments.

Considering how BAD the Texans were the past few years and how competitive they are now, even if they end up 9-8, Stroud is a really possibility. He has made a huge difference to that team, and no chance they are over .500 without him. He’d get my vote. If they tank, lose 6 more, look bad, then it was all a pipe dream, I guess.

Nice series on this, BTW. Thanks. Always a good read.
