Practicing and training with the Goat has to do wonders for your confidence. We’ll probably help get the kid a job like we did for the kicker that went to Philly a few years ago.  I can’t remember his name. He helped me win a fantasy football league that year. 

How many years did Vinny sign for?  At some point we have to try to stash a kicker on the practice squad the year before he hangs it up.

That could work. But somebody will steal em if they look too good.

Wilkins running style reminds me a bit of Lamont Warren... He has a little grace to him for a big man.

Hines is not having a good day on special teams...

 

Hopefully it is just a bad day....

Lamont Warren. That name is a blast from the past. 

Then Walker throws a strike to make me look bad. :headspin:

Hines is having a horrible game. 

 

It is very disappointing...

 

He has been the talk of camp.

Sanchez was a good place kicker at Hawaii

Williams looks alright.

 

I think he tore up the preseason last year too.

Some third teamers trying pretty hard to show they belong.

 

It is a nice change of culture.

That sound you hear is Hines tumbling down the RB depth chart...

Hines’ mistakes are coming on special teams. I don’t think he’ll drop too far on the RB depth charts.  He’ll have till next game to prove these were just game 1 jitters.

Guys like Daniels probably need to do considering who they're battling for roster spots.

It's 1 game, for all we know he can take one to the house next game.

TD Colts! Sweet play. Spider Y Banana. Walker made that look easy. 19-10 Colts.

 

Don't ever throw the Venus on a Spider Y Banana! :D

AV sounds genuinely enthusiastic. Frank Reich has really brought a great change to the team.

I said as much in an earlier post....

 

Nevertheless, it is very disappointing.

Having such a hard time creating pressure on the passer, i have no idea why we don't give Ridgeway more of a chance. He's been our best pressure creator the last couple years. I know it's third stringers now, but even last year on per snap basis Ridgeway was effective rushing the passer.

I’m not writing the kid off yet but when you keep using mid round picks to find RBs then chances are good you get your fair share of disappointments. You get what you pay for most of the time.  That said...I’m still holding out hope for him. I really want him to succeed here.

I like Wilkins.

 

He is giving off an Arian Foster type of vibe. 

 

It is still very early in his career and it can go either way, BUT I like what I see in him tonight.

Absolutely. One game does not make a career. I have seen hall of famers have some very bad days in their first NFL game.

That was ugly. 

 

There was no reason...

 

That is the type of play that could send camp fodder home early. 

 

And as I typed this he was disqualified. Deserving so. Get him out of the game and give him a head start to his next career.

Has he been bad running the ball or just on the punt returns?

    • Houston's standard MO is to double the top WR/TE threat. And they're so bad we should have plenty of options regardless if TY is back or not. Of course we want TY to play, but there should be plenty of folks open regardless.
    • @Superman I see you asked for evidence of turf being a factor. I remember posting some research on it here a while ago but I cannot find it now... those posts might be archived or something. From what I remember there are several different types of artificial turf that is used in the league + the natural grass. The type of artificial turf we have is the worst for injuries with natural grass being the safest. That's not to say that any particular injury this year is attributable to the turf, but to me it's kind of obvious that different surfaces with different properties will lead to different health results over long term, big samples. I will try to find it again later but I can't promise I will be able to.    At some point I also posted about some research that tried to separate different factors for injuries outside of luck (turf, coaching, etc.) but my memories are not very fresh on this one so I cannot remember what that one found out... 
    • And the Packers as far as Rodgers takes them, and the Chiefs as far as Mahomes takes them, and the Colts as far as Brissett takes them, as we saw when Hoyer was forced to play...   You can use that narrative with every team. 
    • I really feel good about this game. Houston will be angry after losing so bad on Sunday. This will cause them to commit more penalties. Watt being out is going to be a real issue so I expect we will win a close game  14-10 Colts 
    • Lamar has been throwing the ball very well.  Over 66% completion, 19 TD's and 5 INT's.   It's a tough offense to stop.   They haven't scored less than 23 points in a game.   Scored over 40 points 3 times (59,49,41).   I think they are definitely the team to be afraid of.
