  1. So, the only guy to pick the Broncos to upset the Chiefs (Wickersham @ ESPN) is also the only guy to pick the Dolphins to upset the Bills. I like our chances.
  2. Bieber isn’t highly regarded in his home town. He was a brat in high school and when he first found fame he relentlessly criticized his home town. The people didn’t like being criticized and his continuation of bratty behaviour as a pop star didn’t win anyone over. It seems he may be finally growing up. I haven’t heard stories of him egging his neighbour’s house in years. He’s stopped publically bashing his home town - he and the Baldwin girl bought a house in Guelph, Ontario, so maybe Canada isn’t so bad after all.
  3. Born and raised... but no one I know says “eh”. I think it’s more of an east coast thing.
  4. Fun fact about Justin Bieber... My son goes to same high school that Bieber went to. They have a wall of fame to celebrate former students and teachers and Bieber is not on the wall. True story.
  5. I guess I was accidentally obtuse. My point was that when we make it to the red zone, we finish drives better than most teams in the league, which I think is really positive. The red zone is more challenging on offenses where everything is tighter, so I am encouraged by this stat. I completely agree with you that we haven't generated the points that we should have with how well we've moved the ball this year. I feel that our offense is better than our points per game would indicate. Josh's hero ball tendancies have turned the ball over too much and resulted in 20-yard sacks when we were already in field goal range. I think Josh will make fewer of these mistakes in the second half of the season.
  6. We can finish drives, as we are third in red zone offense and we've done quite well when the field is short. Our issue has been turnovers and sacks that push us out of field goal range. These will both improve as Josh eliminates some of the mistakes that have hurt him in three of the first five games this season.
  7. Am I just paying closer attention, or does Beane cycle players through the practice squad more than most?
  8. It does feel like Ford is trending this way. It feels like he's the one guy on this team who hasn't really earned the reps he's been given. I didn't see any drop off in play when Bates came in to take his place.
  9. I find our offense rank in the top-ten interesting. We've moved the ball efficiently to pick up yards, but have turned the ball over too much and given up sacks at the edge of field goal range costing us points. Josh has been effective most of the time, but his mistakes have been costly on the scoreboard. I think he figures it out sooner rather than later.
  10. Step 5 - Full Football Activity / Clearance Upon clearance by the team Physician for full football activity involving contact, the player must be examined by the independent Neurological Consultant (INC) assigned to his club. If the INC concurs with the team physician that the player's concussion has resolved, he may participate in his club's next practice or game. I'm not sure how Landry was cleared, based on the chart above. Without practicing, he somehow met the requirements of Football Specific Activities and Full Football Activity. I need someone smarter than me to figure this out.
  11. The final stage of the protocol is regular practice activity, followed by an assessment. Josh will be assessed tomorrow for concussion symptoms, following today's activities. If he has no concussion symptoms, then he will be cleared to play.
  12. Pretty confident bunch at the Titans board, with 60% predicting a Titans win by a TD or more. Only 17% think the Bills win. My opinion, since you asked... This will be a low-scoring game, with neither team posting more than 20 points. Both defenses are solid in this one. Josh plays (I think) and learns from his mistakes a week ago and protects the ball. Bills 17 Titans 13
  13. Would you be willing to share the link to the Chinese sports gear site. Asking for a friend. :)

      haha. I was a little weirded out at first, but it let me pay with Paypal so I figured if it was a scam, I could at least get my money back. And it was legit... had the nike/nflpa tags and all. Only had one tiny blemish (which I would never have seen if i wasn't looking for it)... the stitching on the NFL logo was slightly off. I figure it was probably a reject from the factory because of the stitch being slightly off. Took about 2 weeks to get... but for $35 instead of $150, didn't bother me one bit. Shipping was $15 so if you're wanting multiples, it probably makes sense to order them together to save on shipping.
