But the Bengals have a new head coach A.J. Green Jersey , and new coaches go "get their guy", right?"In 2018, there were seven new NFL head coaches. So, that means there should have been seven teams who had a new coach looking to “get their guy”. But how many of them did that?One. That’s right, only one of those seven teams drafted a quarterback in the first round last year. It was the Arizona Cardinals, who drafted Josh Rosen. Of the seven teams, only two others even bothered to draft a quarterback at all – the Giants selected one in the fourth round, and the Titans grabbed one in the sixth round.Interesting Womens Geno Atkins Jersey , but maybe 2018 was an outlier. Let’s go back another year. What about 2017? That year, there were six new head coaches in the NFL. Of those six teams, a total of ZERO drafted a first-round quarterback. Only two of them selected a quarterback at all, with the Bills drafting one in the fifth round and the Broncos drafting one in the seventh round (with John Elway continuing the Broncos perpetual search for the next, well, the next John Elway).So that means over the past two seasons, with a total of 13 head coaching changes, only one of those new regimes went and “got their guy”. Quarterback-loving Jon Gruden didn’t go “get his guy”. Neither did the Giants with an aging Eli Manning Bobby Hart Jersey , nor the Jaguars with Blake Bortles. And so on.Ok, ok, but let’s go back one more year. Let’s look at 2016. Surely we’ll find why the media keeps telling us that new head coaches always go “get their guy” in the draft, right? In 2016, there were seven head coaching changes. Of those seven teams, only one of them selected a first round quarterback, with the Eagles drafting Carson Wentz. Only half of the remaining teams even drafted a quarterback at all. The Browns selected one in the third round, the 49ers drafted current Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel in the sixth round Vontaze Burfict Jersey , and the Dolphins took one in the seventh round.Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty ImagesSumming it all up, of the 20 head coaching changes that have taken place in the last three seasons, only TWO of those teams drafted a quarterback in the first round. Only 10% of the teams used their top pick to go “get their guy”. And less than half of them even bothered to draft a quarterback at all – and of the ones that did, they usually selected one at the tail end of the draft.So, what does it all mean?It means we can probably stop the hysteria that the Bengals are going to draft Dwayne Haskins, or any of the other quarterbacks in the first round, because they have a new head coach, and that’s what new head coaches do. Will we stop with the nonsense? Unlikely. But at least now we know it is nonsense. Last week: 7-5-1Weeks 1 through 10: 70-66-5Home team shown in&#32893;bold.&#32893;Odds taken from Odds Shark.Carolina (-4.5) vs. Detroit&#32893;The Panthers&#32893;were rolling up until last Thursday night Womens Jordan Evans Jersey , when the Steelers put up 52 points and beat them soundly. They’re a better team than that, and they come out with an edge against a Lions team that continually looks to be going through the motions.Pick: Carolina (-4.5)Baltimore&#32893;(-5.5) vs. CincinnatiLet the Lamar Jackson era begin!Pick:&#32893;Baltimore (-5.5)Atlanta (-3) vs. DallasI, like everyone else, had Dallas dead to rights heading into last Sunday’s matchup in Philly… and then they promptly outplayed the Eagles and took home a big win. The Falcons, meanwhile, went to Cleveland and got shellacked by the Browns. This one should be close, but I’ll take the home team.Pick: Atlanta (-3)Houston (-3) vs. Washington&#32893;Deshaun Watson has a big game against a&#32893;Redskins&#32893;defense that allowed 406 yards passing last week, and the Texans win their seventh straight.Pick: Houston (-3)Pittsburgh (-5.5) vs. Jacksonville&#32893;The Jaguars’ season has taken a nosedive. The Steelers are currently rolling and coming off a mini-bye after a big Thursday night win. Plus Womens Jordan Willis Jersey , they also don’t have the Le’Veon Bell saga hanging over their heads anymore.Pick: Pittsburgh (-5.5)New York Giants (-1.5) vs. Tampa BayOdell Beckham Jr. thinks the Giants can run the table. His squad keeps that dream alive… at least for one more week.Pick: New York Giants (-1.5)Indianapolis (-1.5) vs. TennesseeAndrew Luck’s last game in which he did not throw for three or more touchdowns?&#32893;Week 3 vs. Philadelphia.He is having a fantastic season.Pick: Indianapolis (-1.5)Los Angeles Chargers (-7) vs. DenverThe Bolts are hot.Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-7)Arizona (-5) vs. OaklandAnd, the award for worst NFL game of the week goes to…Pick: Arizona (-5)New Orleans (-8.5) vs. PhiladelphiaLast year’s Eagles team beats this year’s by how many points? 20? 30?
