-WIN TOTALS 


San Francisco 49ers

Projected 2018 over/under: 7.5 wins (Over -130, Under +110)
And this was the toughest number to peg, if only because the Niners looked like a totally different animal while going 5-0 under Jimmy Garoppolo. Kyle Shanahan's team isn't going to go undefeated in 2018 with its new quarterback, but the 49ers are going to return Jimmy GQ and a defense with as many as six first-round picks. And they should have something in the range of $100 million to work with in free agency. They could get good in a hurry. San Francisco also is in a tough division, and the NFC West has to face off against the NFC North and AFC West next year. The Niners' road schedule includes six teams that were .500 or better this past season, along with a game at Lambeau Field against the Packers.

Oakland Raiders

Projected 2018 over/under: 7.5 wins (Over -140, Under +120)
The second-most difficult number on this board was Oakland. Do you believe in Jon Gruden and a talented core that went 12-4 as recently as 2016? Or do you see a Raiders team that went 6-10 with the Pythagorean expectation of a 6.0-win team last season and one that hasn't topped 8.7 expected wins under Derek Carr's stewardship? I'd put heavy juice on the over, because it's hardly out of the question that Gruden turns the offense around quickly, but defensive struggles might hold back the Raiders in a difficult AFC West.

GIANTS:


Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick)
Sources say the #SFGiants rank the non-Lorenzo Cain free agent CF options as: 1) Jarrod Dyson; 2) Jon Jay; 3) Cameron Maybin. Dyson is valued for speed, defensive metrics and SB ability. Giants have expressed interest, but Dyson still talking to multiple clubs. Nothing imminent.


Henry Schulman (@hankschulman)
I'm sensing the #sfgiants' heavy lifting is over with Longoria and McCutchen. They have a few million left before they reach the tax threshold, but they still could get another outfielder and reliever. More Dyson type than Cain type with Duggar in the mix.

Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick)
The #SFGiants have also been on Billy Hamilton for a while, but they've taken a bite out of their farm system with Longoria and McCutchen trades, and owner Bob Castellini's personal fondness for Hamilton makes him tough to pry loose from the #Reds.

JAX @ NE
MINN @ PHILLY


-PRESSURE GOT TO MARCUS WILLIAMS ---IT WASN'T GOD.....

I HATE GUYS GETTING CREDIT FOR ADMITTING A MISTAKE NO KIDDING?

Marcus Williams, cornerback, New Orleans. We don’t need to rehash what went wrong on the final play, but I would like to point out how Williams did not duck the spotlight after the game. Through bloodshot eyes, the Saints rookie safety answered the questions and vowed to learn from the experience. “You can't let it beat you down,” Williams told the media. “I'm gonna take it upon myself to do all that I can to never let that happen again. And, I mean, if it happens again, then I shouldn't be playing. But I'm gonna take it upon myself to do all that I can to make sure nothing like this happens again to me."

-CAN HAGS DEFENSE STOP BRADY?

-WON 3-4 OVER THE WEEKEND ...



• Though he played a limited schedule, Jimmy Garoppolo of the Niners was every bit as good as you thought at first glance, particularly on difficult down-and-distance plays. The league average for third-and-six-yards-plus for quarterbacks was 26.5 percent positive plays. Garoppolo had the best percentage in the league with 53.3 percent positive grades on third-and-six-plus plays.

POP ON LAVAR: 


Popovich told ESPN that the “substance and gravitas of the source” should be taken into account when determining the validity of an individual’s opinion on basketball (or anything else, for that matter). “I think the first thing to look at is the substance and gravitas of the source that speaks,” Popovich said on Thursday night. Just stopping at that point would tell you that you don't need to listen or go any further. It's just another fan in the peanut gallery with an opinion, which is meaningless. Luke [Walton] has been schooled in this game from the time he was a little kid.”
In reality, objectively, Walton isn’t doing a bad job at all with a roster still attempting to find its way in the NBA. The Lakers beat Popovich’s Spurs 93-81 on Thursday night thanks to an intense defensive effort in the second half which didn’t suggest a team quitting on its coach. They have won three in a row. Maybe that’s enough to make LaVar, with the help of Popovich, finally listen.

The Warriors added Curry to the injury report roughly two hours after he slipped. Though the team released no further information, general manager Bob Myers indicated during an interview with 95.7 The Game that there are no immediate plans for an MRI or an X-ray.
Curry’s absence on Wednesday is largely precautionary, according to a team source.
Curry missed 11 games last month after spraining the same ankle Dec. 4 at New Orleans. Since returning Dec. 30, he has been playing extremely well, averaging 35.2 points -- on 57.4-percent shooting, 53.2 percent from deep -- 5.6 assists and 5.6 rebounds during the five-game stretch.
The ninth-year point guard was named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday.
His backcourt mate, Klay Thompson, will miss his first game of the season tonight (rest).
