His easiest path to more touches is to consistently catch the balls thrown his way.  And it's completely under his control.  Focus on what you can control, Dontre.  Also, break one.  Watch what happens to your touch count when you break one (let alone a couple), and you are a more reliable receiver.  It's all on you, man.

He has to fix the drops as well.  Focus on what you can control, Dontre, which is catching the balls that are thrown your way.  Easiest path to more touches.

Working from home today so I can watch a new sports-based soap-opera, something called The Dumb and The Damned.  It's going to be on ESPN, and it's unscripted.  Should be good.  Lead actor is some guy named Brady Hoke.   His ignorance is exceeded only by the unjustified hubris of the fans.  The light of illumination is beginning to penetrate their illusion, and it is sublime to witness effects of the fruit of knowledge on their faces.

It's like a clown car at the circus.  One joker after another.

Slow news day?  Not in the world of sports.  Ray Rice, great NFL games yesterday.  But they lead with pearls of wisdom from Brady.

Nothing to see here.   Just the Brady Hoke trying to look like he's in charge tour.

They want to float a motion that we should stop counting Big Ten championships and freeze the totals where they are now, for all time.

I'll play as well.  I'm believe it would still be a top tier job, but wouldn't you be worried about the culture?  The whole Michigan Man thing that played a role in Rich Rod's bad start.  I think I would be worried about it. 

The other factor I would not feel comfortable with is Dave Brandon's job stability.  I wouldn't want the guy that hired me to be fired, especially in a place with the apparent politics that Michigan has.

Big Ten shouts out a giant Howdee-Do! to the Bocephus with the tan tattoo!  He looks like he knows where in the Pine Barrens all the bodies are buried, so...respect.

The bet I would propose isn't Eze vs. Samuel, it would be on your statement "…and it's not close".  Wrong!  So very wrong.

I believe Samuel is the better back, but I could see somebody reasonably picking Eze in a head-to-head comparison, because it is close.  Samuel looks to have the extra gear, which can stretch a defense.  Elliot has a bigger build so in theory would be able to move the pile, get some tough yards.  Each one has a strength, however, identifying the strength does not imply weakness on the other.   Elliot has plenty of speed, and Samuel is very productive running up the middle.  

I'm very happy with both sharing the carries.  I expect the early trend will continue.  Both will have similar stat lines at the end of the season.  Carries, Yards, and YPC.

Guitonish (adj): Having the characteristic of a savvy veteran quarterback.  Not determined by statistics like number of starts, but rather qualities of leadership, preparation to compete, and on-field exploits.

I don't see top 10.  I just think it was a matchup nightmare for us.  Their savvy veteran QB negated our D-line advantage, and our defensive backfield is still (still!?) a work in progress.  Meanwhile, our inexperienced QB and O-line faced a Tsunami and the coaches did not scheme or prepare or react. 

Plus, we had lots of bad luck that night.  Refs missed the fumble call that gave them confidence.  Our FG kicker (Das Boot is revoked till he redeems himself) shanked a couple.  Dropped passes by Corey.  Change the 50/50 type stuff to actually 50/50 and we beat them on an off-night for us.

I suggest the coaches sit down and watch tape on Bernie Kosar to Webster Slaughter.  Anytime the other teams defense showed blitz, I started celebrating.  Webster would slant to the inside and Kosar would hit him with an on-target throw.  At a minimum, it was worth a first-down.  It would eventually break the will of the defense to blitz.
