  1. Huddle is hilarious sometimes. We win two freakin games and the Huddle GM's are ready to trade the farm for one player. Insanity.
  2. One day, we will learn our lesson regarding older players.
  3. hahaha - I do remember all the "Everett Brown" talk when we drafted Burns - not saying you particular, I just remember all the grumbling.
  4. He COULD be right, but two games into the season isn't the time for such hyperbole. Call me in December when we're still undefeated, and then we can talk about the comparisons to 2015.
  5. We play nickel a lot. One of the things people are talking about overall is how many different alignments Snow is using with our defense this year. Bouye doesn't need to be great to contribute meaningfully, he just has to be above average.
  6. He's gonna get David Carr'ed up there, and it's a shame.
  7. That's just the 10 first year eligible.

  8. And the other Texans receiver is 6'3". Not a good matchup for Donte.
  9. If things are still going well at mid season with Sam, great, we may have found the answer in the second round. Two games in is still too soon. It's promising, agreed, but still too soon.
  10. We are capable of winning this game. But it won't be easy. Our roster is too thin, too young for us to anticipate any easy games. I think the loss of Tyrod Taylor is what made us such solid favorites here. We are a promising, young team right now. That's all. This is the first of many traps we can fall in to. We have to keep that one week at a time attitude this year.
  11. Baldy lookin to fill that John Madden sized void in broadcast. I'm ready for it.
  12. It wouldn't make me cry to see Deonte get some snaps this week. Obviously he isn't ready to start, and his position flexibility is non-existent. However, this might be the best chance he has this year: get on the bench when someone is injured and grabbing a few snaps here or there. Maybe he turns some heads in those reps, best case scenario.
  13. Is Bouye better than our third best CB? If the answer is yes, this is nothing but positive for our team. I am not sure, but on paper it seems like he probably is.
  14. Scheme and talent work hand in hand. If the talent isn't there, it doesn't matter what scheme you dream up. Likewise, having a ton of talent without a strong scheme / identity is equally ineffective. If we had tried to run this scheme last year with the talent we had on hand, we wouldn't have been as worried about all the close games. We simply wouldn't have had any. Eventually opponents will catch on, and it won't look that good. We'll have injuries. Rooks will make mistakes. This defense isn't the finished product yet. What we're seeing now is simply an early preview of it. I'm very optimistic for the future, even if I don't think this is our window yet. The good news is that this team is eminently more watchable than the teams of the late Rivera era. Great to see our team really putting out the effort.
