  1. You can probably out curse him, too, though once he sees your guns, he'll probably squeak out a little 'shit!'* involuntarily. *both verbally and...uhh....literally.

    Texan game post game analysis

    Did you just quote yourself and declare your words to be classic? Or is that a callback I don't understand?

    Texan game post game analysis

    We needed a win, and against a division opponent. Our coaches threw everything they had at it. But we don't need to sustain THIS type of play. We should get Mariota back soon, and Lewan. Evans will play more, and Landry looked good out there. Our defense will continue to gel and improve. It has new pieces in key places. It will get better as the season progresses. Hopefully, our offense will too. A win is a win, but we won't be able to win too many more like this. Fortunately, I don't think we have to do so. I was hoping for 4-4 to start...I thought we'd beat the Dolphins and lose to Texans...opposite happened, but the record is the same (bit better, actually, thanks to a division win). We are in good shape right now, considering. The key will be when we can get guys healthy. This team NEEDS time to gel.

    Best Coaching Job We've Seen In Years

    How was he?? Amazing??? Did he get two tackles and an INT in his one snap??

    Best Coaching Job We've Seen In Years

    Wow. Down your starting QB....down your best offensive weapon....down your TWO starting tackles. And we win against a division rival? Hell of a coaching job, no doubt. I was frustrated by how the defense played after the first quarter at times....when we'd rush just three, and they'd get a big play. But what do I know? They won the game, which no one thought they could do. Great coaching.

    “We Stand For” campaign

    I disagree, but it's definitely not worth arguing too much We have to save those for whether Mariota is the messiah or just another moose from Oregon.

    “We Stand For” campaign

    Friends is one of the most popular shows of all time. Even younger people binge it on Netflix. It's one of their most popular streams. Lots of people got it.
  8. Their stock is up because their sales are up. What other success or failure measure would you like to use?

    The Jonnu Smith era begins

    Interesting theory. I do think Smith is a better receiver than blocker, but this hurts our run game, too. Walker is our best offensive player. No one would deny that, I think. He's gone for the year. That sucks. But the next guy has to step up, and it is a great opportunity for Jonnu. I hope he steps up to it.

    I do think it's too early to completely panic

    Agreed with oldschool. I would be thrilled if went 4-4 to start this season, because I think we'll be improving in the second half. However, if we only win 2-3 of the first 8 games, I won't be surprised at all.

    I do think it's too early to completely panic

    Only the Jags won a game this week; so the division is still wide open Also, Fournette's injury seems to be related to his strength...could be a problem for a while for him. What I mean is that as a power back, he can't really use that power if he's got a tweaked soft tissue problem in his leg. Much depends on how we look this week against the Texans.

    We should’ve kept Williamson

    Then why can' t we stop the damn run?
  13. Maybe...but it looked like he might have been trying to not throw it at the last second, but it was too late. So it floated. Anyway, looked super ugly, regardless. Mariota's picks were related to his injury, but still hurt. Our offense is out of synch, and probably will have more miscues over the next few weeks. Gotta get that fixed ASAP, obviously. But we also need our QB to hit wide open guys, ideally in stride!
  14. Our coaching is fine. Players have to execute. I would have liked to see more adjustments on our defense, but our offense had players wide open that got missed. Also, we weren't going up against a rookie in his first game.

    Time to find something else to do on Sundays

    I watch on gamepass Monday mornings before work. Great way, especially on days like yesterday. Apparently the game lasted like 7 hours or something? Was 2 for me. Really closer to an hour and a half. As for websites, yeah they are all the same. If they bother you, don't visit them...any of them.
