We're an exclusive club. You either need a bucketload of cash and horrible received pronunciation or a drink problem and 4 kids by the time you're 13.
I was hoping a six pack of pints and a DVD of Father Ted would get me into Ireland. As brutal as it is, at least it's in order. I'm waiting until at least 2028 for US citizenship even though I've lived here my whole life.

Well, I gotta give the entire team credit. They didn't embarrass themselves or the fans tonight. It's nice to see players with some pride, and they exhibited that tonight.

The latter sounds like where I live down here in Corpus Christi. Pretty much sums up the population here.

You know what I'm thinking? This is good for recruiting purposes. The whole league saw us dominate what used to be a playoff caliber team with a backup QB.

We had a GREAT chance to dominate a game and gave up 388 yds toatal offense. That sux. The O looked good but the D STILL has work to do. All in all, good win.

First game I actually noticed Mr Dunta playing. He had a near int, and had a couple very nice tackles. The guy knows how to wrap someone up, he will only get better these last few games. Steve Slaton.....nuff said

We gave up 14 points and about 160 yards in pure garbage time. When you're winning by 20 with less than 5 minutes to go, and you're in the prevent defense, the stats don't count in my opinion.

Its like DC throwing for 3 TDs and 200 yards in the last quarter, after the Texans being down 40-0 after 3

Slaton is definitely the steal of the draft. Too small my a$$.

great win guys.

This game is a great example that our biggest need in the off season offensively is a power back. Was tearing my hair out when we called the same play with Slaton on the line. We never looked like scoring.

Secondary still a huge concern - we dodged a huge bullet with the Jag holding call when Porter was wide open in the first half. How on earth did he get that open?

I thought Okoye had a good game, he managed to get in the face of Garrard.

he is too small to be that short yardage guy, but he was definitely a steal.

Yeah, we just need a bruiser RB back there for those goal-line stands. That's what the draft will be for. Any prospects?

We've had good luck with 400 pound running backs. Javorsky Lane! A less talented Ron Dayne, sure, but he's big

I was referring to the sentiment that he is too small to be an every down back. But yeah. I agree with you. A thumper RB should definitely be on the shopping list this off season.

Lane has always been talented, but he has one of the worst attitudes I have ever seen in a college player.

You see his type show their true colors in the pros, but they usually wait until they get PAID. That says something about his intelligence too.

I disagree. I've known Javorskie since he was a kid. He just wants the rock and thought Sherman did him dirty by making him a FB. You give the kid the rock inside the 5, and he will find the end zone. Great kid that loves to play. Could he have handled the situation with Sherman better? Yeah, but don't paint the kid in a bad light because his current HC is turning out to be another Charlie Weiss.

LOL.

Lane is going to be a FB in the NFL. Sherman was trying to improve his future by giving him some experience at the position so he could improve his draft stock.

Instead, Lane decided he is more important than the team. Everybody loves scoring TDs more than blocking for them, especially a guy that has had his fair share of TDs in the past.

But they can't even put him on the field unless they are giving him the rock because he refuses to block anyone. He is a selfish player.

Texas A&M touchdowns are only important to him if he is the one scoring them.

Texans fans just don't compare to Dynamo fans. I actually saw more people at the end of the game than at the start of the game. I don't recall many people leaving early, even though it was a horrible game.

That is for fumbles by the offensive player. He did get a forced fumble and is up to 4 total for the year. He did get credit lower in the stat sheet.

I know mine has been crap both yesterday and today. Unless you count posting on a mb as productive, that is. Pretty sure my boss would not.

You know what we will agree to disagree here. Lane is that RB that keeps a 1st and 2 on the 2 from becoming a 3 point posession. He'll get into the end zone carry 5 defenders on his back. He is a thumper.

I don't know how many times you have seen him play. However, I have seen him absolutely blow up defenses while blocking for others.

There is a reason why A&M is down in the cellar and it ain't Lane's fault.

I played against Lane in high school & Mike Goodson was my teammate. So I follow them. Plus, because my brother goes to A&M, I have watched nearly all of the Aggies games for the last three years.

Lane is a great goal line back. I didn't say otherwise. But if you think he is playing his heart out this year then you must be related to him cuz it ain't showing on the field.

Also didn't say it was Lane's fault that A&M is trash right now. They have four years of poor recruiting and bad coaching to blame for that.
