NFL Week 3 Overreactions

Week 3 of the 2022 NFL season has passed! It was another crazy week — the Chiefs lost to the Colts, the Chargers got demolished (at home) by the surging Jags, perhaps the last Brady-Rodgers head-to-head was a game of the defenses while the Broncos-49ers combined to score 21 points in Sunday’s primetime affair. Nevertheless, we have some Week 3 overreactions as a result! Let’s jump into it!

Garrett Burroughs:

Jalen Hurts is your 2022 MVP:

My goodness how the tables have turned for Mr. Hurts. Last season, there were questions surrounding his ability to be a pocket passer and lead a team at a high level. He’s doing both in spades this year. The offseason acquisition of A.J. Brown has done Hurts wonders, but the work he’s done in the offseason is paying dividends.

Kliff Kingsbury won’t survive the year as Cardinals HC:

The Arizona Cardinals have led one time through three games this season. That’s a recipe for disaster for Kingsbury and this team. The schedule lightens up for them over the next month, including games against Carolina, New Orleans and Seattle. Plus DeAndre Hopkins will return from suspension. But none of that will matter if this offense doesn’t find rhythm and consistency.

Scott Logush:

The Matt Canada Experience needs to be fired into the sun and erased from history.

Don’t get me wrong, Mitch Trubisky hasn’t been a world beater, but he hasn’t been awful, in fact, he’s been quite decent for the Steelers, but this offensive coaching is embarrassing. The Steelers have a good group of weapons, their offensive line has shown great improvement from a year ago, but the coaching is holding it back to the point of malpractice.

Brian Daboll is an elite head coach.

It’s been three weeks, but I’m ready to crown Brian Daboll as the best head coaching hire over the past two cycles. This sorry Giants roster is 2-1, despite Daniel Jones and the receivers being less than ideal. The Giants look prepared and they look like they believe in their coach. Just wait until this new coach and general manager combination get to shape this team in their eyes — Big Blue might be back.

Trey Daubert:

The Chargers season is over.

If keeping Justin Herbert in the Chiefs game while injured wasn’t enough to land Brandon Staley in jail, then this past week should. 38-10 midway through the 4th quarter with Herbert facing a serious rib injury and Staley kept him in the game. Insane. Makes no sense. Rashawn Slater is out for the year. Their receivers are going down like flies. Austin Ekeler has lost a step. The bottom line is Staley is a fraud. You can’t convince me otherwise at this point. As clueless as clueless gets. They’re not a playoff team. Not close. If the Chargers are going to eventually make some noise, it will be next year when Staley is fired.

Christopher Bagdonas:

The Giants are *finally* gonna be fine.

Any “success” that happens this year, in my opinion, is just house money. Fans finally have a regime they can feel good about in Schoen and Daboll. Once they can sort out a franchise quarterback and a true No. 1 receiver, then fans can truly start thinking about going from the top-10 in the draft to the upper half of NFL teams.

The Eagles are gonna be a problem for a long time.

I understand that their competition so far hasn’t been top tier, but Howie Roseman has done a great job setting this team up for the present and future. I am a big believer in Jalen Hurts and think that the Eagles will be the team to beat in the NFC East for a while instead of Dallas.

Jack Sabin:

The Raiders very well might be the worst team in the NFL.

Las Vegas boasts a very inconsistent offense that seems to be dragged down by the ineptitude of Josh McDaniels and a defense that had questions at the start of the year that, up to this point, have clearly not been answered. In a tough AFC West and with a difficult remaining schedule, I just don’t see how this team gets it together and wins more than six games.

Jalen Hurts will finish in the top-3 for MVP by the end of the season.

We all know the rushing upside he brings and has brought, but this season he has taken a clear leap as a pure passer, averaging over 300 yards per game in the air up to this point. If he keep this up — or even a shadow of — along with his rushing upside along with an Eagles team that looks like it make a serious run, I don’t see how he doesn’t end up very high on the MVP ballot.

Chase Racherbaumer:

Russell Wilson is a fraud.

The Broncos made a splash this offseason when trading for quarterback Russell Wilson. However, the only splash Wilson has made for Denver this year is getting clowned for the “Let’s Ride” slogan. The 2022 Broncos have been unwatchable football and Wilson has been a key part of that failure.

Surrounded by a supporting cast in Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams, Wilson has not found chemistry with the bunch. He does not look like one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, even though he is being paid to be one (5-year, $245 million deal). Following the trade, many suspected Wilson could rejuvenate his career like former Bronco Peyton Manning did when he arrived in Denver. Right now, it seems like we are watching the last year of Manning in a quarterback battle with Brock Brock Osweiler.  With Wilson aging, his athleticism is slowly giving out, making him a shell of his former self. Nobody wants to tune in and watch Russ cook.
