  1. Rookie Reports

    Methinks your Aggie homerism is showing here. Dude plays like 2 snaps per game on offense and stands in front of the punter the rest of the time. Dude literally hasn't registered a single stat yet. Personally, I'd rather still have Jerrell Adams on the roster. My 7th round ratings: Derek Newton Andre Hal Zach Diles David Anderson Troy Nolan Now I will give you this, simply by making the roster Gillaspia has contributed more than Kelly, Fuller, Hilliard, so he's our best 7th in a while.
  2. What to do about K?

    Kubiak would have had Schaub take a 5 yard loss to "center" the kick.
  3. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    Give the Bidwell's the Astrodome for Pat Pete!
  4. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    Uh- did "Genius" O'Brien just outcoach "Genius "Andy Reid?
  5. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    Good god - if that isn't the tiki voodoo idol hex I don't know what is. This is on you now.
  6. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    Yo Hyde - that undershirt has cost you 20 yards today. Somebody get him and Coutee to sacrifice their sloppy fashion sense for not getting dragged down by finger tackles by their white cottons.
  7. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    One of the most maddening plays in football. Ought to be an onsides kick EVERY time this happens. 50% chance of recovering on "surprise" onsides. I'll risk them getting the ball on the 40 for a 50/50 shot at possession. Nobody has the balls to make the tough analytics calls.
  8. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    This Chiefs defense is as dirty as it gets outside of a Gregg Williams defense. CBs can't cover, just mug our receivers every play. A bunch of loudmouths for a garbage unit. Steve Spagnolu is as big a crony as they are as this dude has done absolutely nothing aside from pressure Brady with a hall of fame d-line. Honey Badger is all bark, no bite as in he sucks on the 5 plays he's getting punked then barks after dumb hits - latter day Pollard.
  9. Week 6 - Houston Watsons' vs KC Mahomes'

    @#%$%TGFS#$ET%GTGFE$RTRFDESETTYGFEE%R Nick Martin with ANOTHER early snap!!!! Dude has screwed up at least one snap EVERY game this season. Worst snapper of football I've ever seen and it aint close. Does this idiot have a learning disability or what? Get him a legal prescription of adderrall as he can't remember snap count from huddle to snap.
  10. What to do about K?

    Brian Anger is a BIG part of the problem. Laces in again.

    I hate the itchy trigger finger coaches have with kickers. It feels like it's straight out of the "hardnosed coach" manual where kickers aren't really football players and firing them gives you "no nonsense" cred. Problem is, like 90% of these Lombardi tactics, it doesn't work. Nobody thinks you are tough because you cut a kicker and getting inside you kickers head with public threats, bringing in other kickers, etc just becomes a self-fulfilling proficy. Mr. hard-nosed Belichick is on his 3rd kicker (due to injury), because he understands the value of instilling confidence in your kicker, not dumping him because of a few missed kicks. I don't remember too many situations where swapping the kicker hasn't just ended with a constant treadmill of kickers being run thru because they think their job is on the line with every kick. Our QB has had 2 really bad games, Nuk has had several drops, Watt has been shutout and drew 2 personal fouls. Bob has botched nearly every 2 minute drive and coaches challenge. Joseph has gotten burned, Reid has missed tackles, Tunsil has given up sacks. Martin has screwed up at least 5 snaps. Fairbairn has missed 2 50+ yard field goals which should never be taken as better than 50/50 odds. Sure, missing extra points hurts, but 1/3 of kickers in the league have missed 1 or more already and only 3 kickers in the league converted all of theirs last year - these aren't 17 yarders anymore and aren't automatic. Don't forget, we also fired his holder which is a far bigger deal in timing and trust than most can imagine. Jon Weeks remains flawless and will have the long snapper MVP trophy named after him someday. Kaimi hit 37 of 41 FGs and 39 of 41 XPS last year and has numerous game winners. His kickoffs have been a huge part of improving our coverage teams. The dude has missed a few XPs, most of which wouldn't be noticed if this offense was operating to it's potential like last week. Stick with him.
  12. Week 5 Texans vs Flacons

    That was a nice game. I approve.
  13. Texans vs Panthers

    Watson seems really annoyed with O'Brien and how slow playcalls have been coming in. I feel a rift finally coming. He played like garbage today, but warranted or not, this feels like one of those games where Watson finally steps out of line, stands up for himself, and starts bitching about the incompetence he is dealing with on this coaching staff. This game was still winnable despite a crappy execution by Watson, but O'Brien AGAIN failed his team in crunch time by not doing HIS JOB in managing time outs, getting playcalls in efficiently, and not adapting to the game flow. This game simply called for us taking what was given to us with the defense creating turnovers, just running the football, and he decides to go off the rails with gadget plays and having Watson dropping back repeatedly despite clearly being off his game. Zero sense of urgency all game. Was Titans game last year vs. Gabbert all over again. Just a god awful coach in every possible sense. Only yardage gained was individual effort and broken plays - nothing schemed.
  14. Texans vs Panthers

    Love triangle with Devlin. Good god, the moustache, goatee, and chin dimple just made me lose my lunch.
  15. Texans vs Panthers

    Good God. 2 plays in a row in crunch time O'Brien couldn't get a play in. Amazing how Freddie Kitchens was getting grief about trying to do too much on the sidelines and here we are in year 5 of O'Brien and he still can't do it. Completely outcoached on last play. Awful, pathetic, embarassing, inexcusable.
