  1. There's RB's to be had from top to bottom in the draft. I agree that "life after Turner" is coming soon, but whether by trade, FA, or draft, the runningback is probably the easiest position to replace in the NFL. True gamebreakers like Adrian Peterson are rare, but there are currently 14 guys in the NFL at the running back position averaging 4.5 or more yards per carry. It's everybody from LeSean McCoy to Matt Forte to Ben Tate to Roy Helu. There's another dozen guys averaging between 4.0 and 4.5, with Arian Foster coming in at 4.0. LeGarrette Blount and his "Eddie George Strategy" (1 yard gai
  2. We need to beat Jacksonville by 14-17, the way we should have beaten Houston. We shouldn't have lost more than 3 games this season, and I blame it on inconsistent play and taking our foot off the gas. If we find something that works against Jacksonville, we need to beat it to death, sportsmanship be damned. If we've got a chance to win by 35, we should. Realistically, a 7-10 point win is what I expect after we let them creep back in in the second half and make Gabbert look a lot better than he is.
  3. First time posting here in a loooooong time. The biggest needs I see? 1. OC. There are far too many weapons on the field to be stuck in the same play-calling scheme that we've had for the last few years. Get a fresh set of eyes in there and open things up. 2. DE. This is more a "big picture" move than an immediate need. A pure pass rusher, even if it's in the draft (looking at a guy like Vinny Curry) to rotate in with Abraham and Edwards and take John's spot when he's ready to move on would be fantastic. 3. O-Line depth. Always a good idea. See also: Pittsburgh Steelers. 4. TE. Tony Gonzalez
  4. Gavin - Huntington, WV Micheal, We always hear about guys that have pre-game routines or "superstitions", especially when things are going good. Do you do anything in particular to help shake off a tough loss like in Week 1?
  5. It's easy. Watch. Our defense played physical and swarmed to the ball very well. Aside from the game winner, we held Pittsburgh, a team whose offensive identity is running the ball, to about 3 yards per carry. That's excellent. If we bring that type of pursuit and physicality to every game, we're going to be sitting pretty in December.
  6. Baker and our entire o line got beat up by one of the best defensive lines in football, who happened to be playing with extra motivation because they knew the offense wasn't going to help them out. Sam Baker is a consistent guy, having one bad game does not make him a bust. I'm happy having him around.
  7. That loss hurt. It probably didn't help that it was my second "stomach punch" game of the weekend, being a Marshall University fan and watching them fall apart against WVU on Friday night. Or that I had to stomach seeing the Saints hold on for a win on Thursday. Or that I had to watch Ohio State roll against Miami. To say this weekend was a disaster for me in terms of football would be a gross understatement. Twelve or so hours removed from the Falcons' loss, though, I'm a little more clear headed on the subject. There are positives and negatives to take away from the game. POSITIVE: Roddy W
  8. My best friend is a Twins fan, and we've debated more than once on who has the better catcher. I told him that despite the gaudy numbers and huge contract, I'd much rather have McCann. Granted, he may never hit for an eye-popping average, but you can count on him to hit between .280 and .310 every year, with 20 or so HR and 85-100 RBI. Beyond that, I think he's about to inherit the Johnny Bench/Pudge Rodriguez mantle as the unquestioned best defensive catcher in the game. It's easy to overlook his defensive abilities because he makes spectacular plays look routine. Throw in the fact that he's
  9. The Phillies seem to be stuck in the same hole we were in last year. They only win when we win, and they can't win the crucial games on days we lose to make up ground. Mentally, that is exhausting for a team. Here's hoping they start to slip in September like we did last year.
  10. The NFL loves the Steelers. I'm not making a built in excuse in case we lose, just stating facts. Refs have come out from both of their Superbowl victories and basically said, "Look, we screwed up calls in that game and kind of handed the Steelers the trophy." Playing them at home in week 1 worries me for that very reason. If everything goes down the middle with the refs, we should win by a touchdown if we can get 3 and outs and keep their defense on the field.
  11. If I were creating a musical montage for this series, I believe I'd set the clips to "Electric Worry" by Clutch. We need a little bit of energy for a big four game series here that can potentially put some distance between us and those jerks from Philly. BANG BANG BANG BANG! VAMINOS VAMINOS!
  12. If the Colts fans complain about the OC, who exactly would they complain about? The guy with the headset or the guy wearing 18?
  13. Inexcusable. Don't you guys know that despite the fact that he stinks out loud in the playoffs, only has one Superbowl ring, and whines more than any elite quarterback ever, Peyton Manning walks on water? The only reason the Colts got beat last night is because the NFL screwed them over. Plain and simple.
  14. Guy I work with is a Mets fan, and his response was, "Good. That only helps us for next year." Granted, he's a Mets fan and they're jerks, but I don't get the people that can celebrate injuries to anybody. No matter who he plays for, Strasburg draws a crowd and is good for baseball. Moreso if he and Harper can help turn the Nationals into a viable franchise. Anybody want to put odds on who gets back first - Medlen or Strasburg?
