Just saw the injury report and he's not on there. Glad to see someone return kicks who is not going to run right into the coverage.

There's one positive sign about this weekend. The kickoff return/field position was pretty bad with Morency and Buchanon. Hopefully speed racer can get us excellent placement to help out the offense.

With a couple of extra weeks off, his hammy should be in good shape. Bodes well for field position I think.

I hope to see Mathis at WR this next game. I think he and Armstrong should get more playing time. It would be a nice change from Bradford and Gaffney dropping passes.

If Capers is willing to bench P Buch and Babin on D then he should take the same approach on Offense with Bradford. I also would say bench the whole Oline and in their places put very large brown paper bags.

I cant wait to see Mathis in the return game this weekend! Maybe he can take one to the house or at least break a long one to get our offense hyped. I would like to see him at WR too, but I dont he catches many deep balls because of the shotty pass protection. If DD can get the ground game going we might see some deep balls off of PA. :drool:

I really don't care where we put him but he needs to be on the field. There is no point in playing Bradford other than as a backup behind Gaffney (who I still think has upside), Mathis and Armstrong. Bradford's 2 receptions and 49 yard contribution are not much to worry about losing nor is his "blocking" downfield.

If the Texans would start Babin and Pitts as rookies, why not Mathis for crying out loud...it's not like we would be losing anything with Bradford on the bench IMO and at least the kid with the upside could get some experience this year.

Don't blame the punt returning problems on Buchanon... we've only returned like 3 or 4 punts. However you can blame the reason for not punting on him.

im sorry, i usually put down bradford... But he made one bad play in the PIT game, but after that he was all cylinders. He was one that actually came out to play.

i agree with you all. mathis should play.
