Hunter Norwood (HN): Thank you to those that reached out after I announced that I would be pulling back from writing as much to focus on me. I’m doing well and getting a lot done for myself as I look back and reflect on what I prioritize in my life and what I should be doing now to be able to push forward in the future. I am still around to talk stats and milestones and SFL meta and this week I’ll be touching on a few of the things I have seen pop up as well as explaining questions I can see arising. Enjoy!
Jack Wall couldn’t be here this week as he is running blocking drills!

HN: For clarity’s sake, Houston’s close win coupled with the fact that they were heavily favored meant they only gained a few points across the board and weren’t able to fully overtake a falling Fort Worth team. Oh and while I’m here I’d like to award a Nice! award to Houston for winning their 69th game in franchise history. Nice!
