Jalen Reagor makes the NFL’s All-Frustrating Team three weeks

Jalen Reagor Makes the NFL All-Frustrating Three-Week Team appeared first on NBC Sports Philadelphia

It’s only three weeks into the NFL season and frustration has already set in for some.

Whether it’s a player whose team is off to an unexpectedly slow start, a wide receiver who isn’t getting enough targets, or a coordinator who has had a viral meltdown due to poor clock management, some have already expressed their frustration.. .and others have legitimacy. right to do that.

There are plenty of seasons left to change things. But until they do, this is the NFL All-frustrated team.

It didn’t take long for Adams to quit his new team. But it’s not for lack of reception. It lacks victory. The Las Vegas Raiders are off to an 0-3 start under head coach Josh McDaniels, making them the only team in the league with three losses. Adams found the end zone in every game, totaling 17 catches for 189 yards and three touchdowns. But that performance from the star receiver, who signed a five-year, $140 million deal with the Raiders in the offseason, hasn’t yet translated into wins.

“Frustrated and angry,” Adams said. “Expect more. It is not easy to win in this series. We know that. No one is naïve to the fact that no one is just going to lay down and just give you victory, but in the end of the day we expect more and we will do. better as we go forward.”

Another highly paid wide receiver is not only receiving minimal targets, he is struggling to get snaps. Golladay — who signed a four-year, $72 million contract in 2021 — played just two snaps in the Week 2 win.

“I should be playing, it doesn’t matter,” he told reporters the following week. “That’s a fact.”

He only got a chance to play in Week 3 went without arrest after downing two of his three targets.

Speaking of snaps, Reagor got just one of them in the Minnesota Vikings’ 28-24 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. That followed his “revenge game” against the Eagles in which the former Philly pick had one catch for seven yards and two punt returns for a total of five yards.

Many joked that Eagles quarterback Darius Slay, who had two interceptions against the Vikings, had more catches than Reagor.

Ken Dorsey, Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator

Dorsey was a a devastating disaster like Cosmo Kramer’s in the “Serenity Now” episode of “Seinfeld.”

After a timeout on the Bills in their Week 3 loss to the Dolphins after Isaiah McKenzie tried to pick up a yard instead of going out of bounds, the CBS broadcast showed Dorsey in the booth slamming his headphones, tablet, hat, notebook and whatever else. he got his hands on the table in front of him.

“I’m up in the box, I’m watching my guys down there just give us everything they could have in them with an effort and from start to finish, playing 90-something snaps in the game,” Dorsey told reporters Monday. “And it was an exciting atmosphere, a lot of credit to the Miami Dolphins, and obviously we weren’t on the winning end so I’m frustrated that I reacted like that, and of course that’s something to I definitely learned. oh.”

The IS Chicago Bears didn’t ask second-year starting quarterback Justin Fields to throw the ball often. But when… well, it wasn’t pretty.

“Straight up, I played – I don’t want to say the A-word – but I played like trash,” Fields said Sunday after the Bears’ 23-20 win over the Houston Texans.

Fields completed 8 of 17 passes for 106 yards and two interceptions. The Bears largely took the ball out of their hands in key situations, choosing not to pass on any of their seven red-zone possessions. Through three games, Fields attempted only 45 passes and completed 23 of them for 297 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.

While Aaron Judge is chasing the single-season record for home runs in baseball, the Cincinnati Bengals offensive line seems to be trying to set a new single-season record for sacks allowed.

In Joe Burrow’s breakout year, he suffered a season-ending injury during a sack. In his second year, he was sacked 51 times, more than any quarterback in the league. This year, he is on pace to break that total this season with 15 threes, including seven in the season opener. That puts him on pace for 85 sacks, which would surpass the single-season record of 76 set by Houston Texans offensive lineman and quarterback David Carr in 2002.

Tablet (and Tom Brady)

Tom Brady is the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards, touchdown passes and broken tackles…probably.

During a scrimmage against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2, Brady broke not one but two tablets on the sideline, sending one of them to the ground.

“I have a pretty bad record against that tablet, unfortunately,” Brady told Jim Gray on his “Let’s Go!” podcast. “I think I forgot my password and I couldn’t log in, so those things can be frustrating.

“Unfortunately, the tablet just happens to get in the way, and that’s obviously why it’s not doing great [against the Saints]so I had to take it out on the poor meaningless tablet.”

The antics of Brady – who also wore a tablet last season – caused the NFL send out a series-wide memo saying that players will face “significant fines” if they break tablets or other equipment issued in the series.

Honorable mention: Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Mahomes was clearly not thrilled with the Kansas City Chiefs play call on Sunday.

He had an on-field exchange with offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy after the Chiefs opted to run the final 20 seconds of the first half and faced second-and-20 from their own 36-yard line.

“Yeah, I think after seeing the video, I can see why people thought it was a lot bigger than it really was,” Mahomes said Monday on his weekly show on 610 Sports Radio. “Obviously, as an offensive player, and as someone who wants to score every time you’re on the field, I wanted to take another chance and try to get it down the field and get out of bounds or something like that and try to give us a chance to throw a Hail Mary or kick a field goal. But they had made the decision — not just coach Bieniemy; I think it was coach Reid and the whole offensive staff — we were in a good place. We had the lead, and we could go to the half and kind of refocus with the ball coming out of the half, and we didn’t want to make a big mistake there at the half. Those are their jobs. I need to be more aware of when that is the right decision, but at the same time, I always want to score. I think that’s the kind of person I am.”
