Davis is starting to worry me. We gave up a 2nd round pick for someone that has played 5 games so far.

Are you also worrying about all the other players we have lost due to injury? I think there have been good players on other teams lost to injury, it is fairly common.

How in the world are we going to keep up with Tom Brady and the Pats this week? Their defense has a strong front 7, not that our run game was anything to write home about, but without our tight ends to hit the creases we wont be able to open up our offense. We do have pretty reliable WR options and NE defense is rounding out the bottom of the barrel, but with limited playmakers on offense, I think Brady-Bel combos going to have an easier time hitting us where we're weak. I was reading http://bit.ly/XFUWkH and many of the ESPN and player bloggers agree. The main weakness for the pats is down the middle of the field. Our backups better step up, or 11 Patriot defenders are going to be flocking to Reggie on every play...

I agree. Its not like he was injury prone before coming to us so Im hoping these injury issues dont last with him.

We still have Allen, who I like all around better than Fleener imo.

At least it appears Justice and Brown will play this week. Also Satele, but I'm not that happy about that one because I'd rather continue to see Shipley.

I don't understand the gloom. I've been pretty dang happy with the Wayne/Avery/Hilton trio. It's a better group than Welker/Lloyd/Branch. And I'd take Brazill over that Edelman punk any day. If you watched the Patriots/Bills game this last weekend, you should be pretty optimistic about our offense hanging 45 points on them...

Does he have a history of injuries? If not, I'll just chalk it up to "one of those things...."

When he has played, he's played well.

I don't see us beating the pats with of without them. maybe i am too negative, but i don't think we can score enough points to keep up with the brady bunch. luck has 7 int and 2 tds on the road. billy b probably has film on our practices and the game book too.

would rather have our injured back to face the bills the following week.

i would take ne giving 9. sorry but true

I'm a Fleener fan. I'm an Allen fan. What I don't get is typically the two get compared and contrasted in discussions. The intent was to have them both playing together, not competing against each other. Allen is just fantastic - other than Luck our 2nd most impactful rookie. That's got nothing to do with Fleener. I think Fleener ultimately will be a more significant weapon than Allen. That's why I want him to get on the field to get that experience, get that 1st TD monkey off his back. He really started coming along as Luck's 3rd down safety valve. For me, I'm excited about both of our rookie Tight Ends and don't wish to compare them or pick one over the other. We need 'em both.

I was impressed with how our young team played against the patriots. Our offense performed better than i thought they would but Luck has to be more careful with the ball http://bit.ly/QU0Gp5. As we add talent and depth to our roster next year, Luck wont have to force passes to move our offense.

Position wise- what should our first 4 draft picks be? Thoughts....

1. OLB

2. S

3. DT

4. RB

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]     
    • Slow starts. We were leading by the end of Q1 on more occasions than we were losing last year.
