They seem to have a pretty soft schedule this year that would allow them to pound the ball so I'd prefer Wilkins most weeks, but not against KC. You'd think game script will heavily favor Hines in this one.

That was all about game script.  Wilkins is the backup, Hines is the chasing points guy.

What do you think the gamescript will be for a game @KC? Hines is the play this week methinks.

What was the gamescript for Det that nearly worked vs KC?

Yeah, that was also with Mahomes having a career worst game on deep throws. No explosive plays from the Chiefs was the main reason why the Lions were able to ball control. Gotta think that ain't happening again, especially with this one at Arrowhead. While the concept of pounding the rock works in theory, I definitely see this as a Hines game if I had to bet on it.

No you don't. You are choosing to.

Correct, he's choosing to believe the more likely outcome will happen. There is a lot of parity in the NFL, despite what it looks like sometimes, and good team will sometimes struggle against lesser teams. Still, if KC played Detroit 10 times Mahomes would probably have 6-8 good games. Same with playing Indy. People go against the grain all the time and are right so you do you but don't pretend like you're seeing something we're not.

Not sure why you both are assuming Indy and Detroit are the same team.

Doesn't that comment go against your whole point though? You're assuming Indy, like Detroit, will pound the rock to try to keep Mahomes off the field. If Mack doesn't play, they're certainly not giving Wilkins the workload that Kerryon got last week. That's what I'm choosing to think at least.

I am drawing global comparisons of the teams, not just saying "they both suck, one got lucky, the other wont".  Indy has a much improved defense as well as a better oline than Detroit.  All I'm saying is thats ts not so easy to dismiss the recipe itself.

Mack will be fine. This is a rest day for a bell cow. Reich already stated he was medically cleared to come back into the game Sunday. 

It seems like he's adding an injury every week now though so I added Jordan Wilkins as insurance.  I know his calf issue and now his ankle issue both seem minor but he's bound to miss games at some point this season.

I bet he's plays this week. But I have this strong suspicion that he won't play next week. I'd actually bet big money on it.

this sub was high on Wilkins but Hines had the higher snap count. 45% to 21% for Hines.

Well yeah they were down two touchdowns in the second half. Hines may have been in anyway even if Mack wasn’t hurt.

im not talking about that, I can see gamescript out the window when the Colts are down 21-0 at the end of 1, and him not getting touches

I literally might just play Hines cause that is what I anticipate, the Colts couldnt keep the Raiders from posting 31, Chiefs hang 40+ on them
