  2. Funny that when I saw "Sources: Marijuana reason Texans cut 3" on ESPN I knew Cierre was one of them.
  3. Gold stars: Davaris Daniels. Kid stepped up big time when we needed it. Deserves a lot of credit for helping us win. Tommy Rees. Third 300 yard passing game to start the season and showed up when it counted most. He has his flaws but he's playing well enough to get us some wins. Cam McDaniel. Cam is a BA. What a tough son of a gun. He grinded hard this game and played harder than anyone on the field. He also gets kudos for having a classy post game interview. Frownies: Offensive line. We just haven't been able to establish a run game so far. O-line needs to step up. They went in the rig
  4. My thoughts are with him and his family. So young. Such a tragic loss.
  5. I truly believe this team is a BCS caliber team. It's not blind homerism. We have talent across the board, we have one of the best coaching staffs in the country, and from what we know, a pretty favorable schedule. I'm feeling good going ahead with the season. Plus, I waited too long over the offseason with all the drama to get sad over 1 loss. I knew this team wasn't going undefeated. Now that's out of the way. Let's go beat Purdue.
  6. GAIII = misdirection & HB draw or kickoff returns. Do NOT throw to him. I cannot stress this enough.
  7. Wake me up when this weekend is over. ND got smacked around by Michigan, the Browns lost the season opener, and the Indians blew a critical game today just as we were catching up in the wild card race. Oh, and I'm getting destroyed by a freaking 10 year old in fantasy football right now. I NEED A DRINK!
  8. Could have sworn he said he was never a vocal leader/captain type. But I could be wrong.
  9. True, but if the defense played better in the first half Tommy and co. wouldn't be desperately trying to catch up. Again, boneheaded throw that shouldn't have happened, but I'm not ready to hang the loss on him. He played well otherwise which impressed me with the pressure he was getting throughout the game. It was the defense's fault and Kelly's dumb playcalling. 41 points is inexcusable and I expect WAY more from the talent we have and Diaco in control. We should have run the ball more, especially down the stretch. If you have the horses in your stable, let them loose.
  10. Gold stars: Jaylon Smith. Kid is going to be good and handled himself well in the limelight. Troy Niklas. Came up big on a lot of plays. Want to see him more in the passing game. TJ Jones. Showed toughness and is emerging as our go-to guy on offense. Amir Carlisle. Liked what I saw again from him. He needs the ball more. Frowny faces: Brian Kelly. 4th down and you call a dumb bubble screen. WTF? RUN THE BALL. Also, declining that holding penalty was stupid. He'll learn from this. Secondary. Everyone. We got torched and just didn't have an answer all game. It was repulsive to watch.
  11. I was talking about Hendrix to the guy who was saying he was pre-med.
  12. Another Tommy Rees thread. Geez. Why don't you wake up when the defense does?
  13. Nah. He told Musberger afterwards that he's afraid of live TV. Best interview ever though. Most entertaining part of my evening.
  14. The sky isn't falling because it's the second freaking game of the season. We shouldn't fire Diaco, Kelly isn't Weis 2.0 which some posters seem to be hinting, and the defense will only improve. We weren't going undefeated anyway... Oh, and if we suck this season we get Golson back next year.
  15. No one is saying he's dumb, but he doesn't have the mental composure of a big time D1 QB. Dear in headlights syndrome.
  16. I 100% agree with this post, especially the last paragraph.
  17. I just feel our offense moved the ball fine and if we weren't playing catch up the whole game we could have relaxed out there and converted more opportunities. Maybe I'm making an excuse for Tommy Gun and the offense, but I think this one goes on the defense. The offense definitely could have played better though.
  18. I think too many people are hanging this game on Rees. Was he perfect? No. That pick he threw right before the first half bothered the hell out of me, but let's not pretend our defense wasn't horrible. We just couldn't contain Gardner and Gallon and that's why we lost. This one's not on Tommy.
  19. That's from TNA after both became has-beens. WWE gave Ric Flair a proper retirement match and nice send off and then a couple of months later he was in TNA. He's back in WWE as a public relations figure, but he's terrible at that because he's always wasted and parties. He's a kooky old guy, that's for sure. It's common belief that Ric Flair will die in a wrestling ring. He bleeds (they call it 'blading' in the industry because wrestlers hide a blade under their wrist tape and cut themselves to expose blood... WWE banned this a few years ago but it's still seen in TNA and independent wrestling)
  20. LOL. This would be the greatest thing ever. I hope to God you have the privilege to do so. And I agree. As long as we beat Meatchicken and U$C any record is good in my book.
  21. So this is going to be a close game just because it's been close many times in recent history? Naw man. We're due. We're going to rip off little Skunkybear's tail and choke them out with it. Saturday needs to get in my life already.
