Cardale's stats are pretty impressive so far.
I would not be at all surprised if Urban is using the early games to perfect execution on core plays at the expense of a wider selection.
I expected to see the WR screen a lot more than I have. There was a QB follow / draw? Right up the middle that was nearly unstoppable last year on 3rd downs that I don't remember seeing much of either.
Good luck, Rod!
He's always injured. Always. I'm sure it's not his fault, but man.
Stickers? I missed that initially. With the stickers I may be able to bribe my 5 year old & get her to pester my wife about daddy's subscription thing!
I thought Bosa lost edge discipline quite a bit last year & teams exploited his upfield push to try to get to the QB by running underneath his pass rush. I think he corrected that in the last 3 games of the year & into this year as well.
he's still getting there but big runs to his side don't seem to be happening. I think teams are also rolling the QB away from his side a lot more this year as well. He's playing great, IMO.
Ha! I'm surprised he could keep from breaking character & laughing.
As a Texan's fan I'm not very happy with Clowney right now.
I can't believe they gave Marshall a negative grade. It was my impression that he is uncoverable on a deep crossing route (ask Bama).
Who is Ice Cube McNeil?
Geocities, Angelfire. Now those are names I have not heard in a long time (Obi Wan voice).
I missed that thread about 9route.
9route was an amateur. Zimmy07 is the same name I used on the old CBS message boards. Some jerk told me not to post on a certain thread or he'd DV me into oblivion.
there were 5 levels & you couldn't start threads if you were at level 1. I kept posting & he & his 4 or 5 screen names DV'd me back to amateur - where I couldn't start threads.
it took me a few weeks, but I amassed around 100 screen names all high level with which I proceeded to return the favor to every one of his aliases. I had a sheet of paper with all the login names & passwords.
at that time my wife worked nights & after my twins went to bed was the only time I really had to myself, so as I had games on low volume, it was maybe one way to fight back at someone with uncontrolled vengeance that I couldn't do in real life without unacceptable consequences.
I may be the reason they changed their message board format. People copied me - it was kind of funny to mess with the guy and have him think he was talking to 3 or 4 people - a couple who would start out on his side (sending Private messages making fun of the guys who were disagreeing with him) only to have all of them turn on him and get ugly. I don't like being told I can't do something or else.
ive mellowed since then & don't have the time for that anymore - thankfully my wife now has a day job.
i'm glad I got that out of my system before I found this website.
The Astros, Texans, & Cougars were all on at the same time tonight. I only got to watch a little of each as I have family in town.
no surprise the Texans screwed up the trifecta.
That's true. Bosa knocked Sudfeld down into the back of his leg.
His jacked up ankle held him in check as much as our defense did - but his back up was getting met at the LOS or in the backfield frequently, it seemed.
It worked in the Cal game for Kenny G. (2nd play of the game for around an 80 yd TD if IIRC).
The sideline reporter said he was having his shoulder looked at.
i can't remember if it was him but I do remember someone reaching out with one arm and grabbing a passing running back and it looked like they hard their arm jarred pretty hard by the force of the RB.
I just saw something about Nick Conners being out for the season also.

I learned not to do that after getting body slammed by a linebacker I didn't see while trying to jump someone else going low. It hurt like hell. Those are the plays where you get up very slowly and hope the next play is a pass or a give to the fullback. I think Zeke jumps higher & is tougher than I am, though.
I saw that. Michael Thomas turned him into an ice sculpture.
I figured Powell would pick off the 2 point attempt.
I hope we use this game to start tuning the short and medium range passing game - as long as we win and no one gets hurt, I'll be happy.
The wording on some reviews I've read made me very suspicious that they were either written by the business owner, an employee, or an aquaintance of the owner.
i don't think Yelp is the only place where this or other things mentioned above is done, either.
Kyle Jones wrote the article. His articles are more this style. DJ's are more Thompsonesque.
Oh, & thanks for the great read, Kyle.
