Hopkins, Fuller and a steadily-improving Fiedorowicz is a good core for the offense.


I still have faith in Strong as well. Sucks he got put on IR.


Miller has promise as well.

Hopefully they won't have to address WR with any high draft picks this year. They just need to take care of NukDaBomb like they should have this past offseason.

So, assuming we don't Houston Sports this game away...if Miami wins tomorrow, they have to come in here and play us next week, correct?

I think I'd prefer that to having to go into NE.

Call me crazy if you must!

I totally forgot about Braxton, you're right. He has a ton of potential.

Agreed on taking care of Hopkins as well. That and improving the O-Line should be priority IMO.

No if Miami win we go to KC, if the steelers win we go to NE.

Ahh...my bad. I'd still prefer that to facing NE, though either matchup would obviously be tough as hell.

Houston is going into turtle mode - just withdrawing into their shell.

Don't like this.

Indeed. Way too much time left and Oakland has all their timeouts + the two minute warning.

This one isn't officially over yet(though Grimes might have just sealed it with that 1st down run), and even still next week will be almost impossible to overcome, but I really look forward to seeing this team with a healthy Martin at C, Kevin Johnson at CB, maybe even a healthy Watt?
