*steps up to podium*

Okay, well, uh... let's see here...

I'll tell you what we did pretty damn good today. We had some issues with some bad merging here and there, and that really hurt us there for a while, but once we got through that things looked good. I'm gonna take a look at the kid who caused the merge later on, but uh... we did have a few issues there in the 4th as well. We're obviously going to need some more preparation for the next matchup in a couple weeks and uh, hope we can get things going better during the bye. Things are looking good outside of that early turbulence, I've been really impressed with these kids yesterday.

Any questions? :)

Brakos - what do you think about the six thousand Larry Johnson threads that started today? Are you going to be suspending or fining anyone for repeatedly starting new LJ threads when there are already clearly several threads already started?

That's a good question Chris... uh... that's definitely something I'm going to need to talk to Khari about shortly, but yes, it does seem a bit obnoxious at this point.

Yes, you in the corner there?

Brakos, now that the Titans have won two in a row with Young as the handoff person (I can't bring myself to call him a QB) his minions have started creeping back out of their hiding places and making noise again. Is there anything you can do to stop this before it becomes insufferable? And more along the gameplan front, what will we have to do to stop the Titans' real threat, Chris Johnson?

Brakos - one more - there's been a lot of talk about releasing slatonisabeast. Obviously he's just a rookie and has room to grow, but do you think his potential outweighs the problems he's had to this point?

I've noticed your gameday threads start off kind of slow, and then pick up in the later pages, will you change your threadplan to try and get this problem resolved?

:)

Well from the last time we've played our defense has really started coming together, and we've been keeping an eye on Tennessee for a while now. They probably weren't as bad as their 0-6 record showed, and right now they're making up for that. Chris is one hell of a kid, and that's going to be our number one defensive priority going into the bye.

Well I'll you what Chris, I think this kid's got a lot of potential, but he's been having quite a few fumbling problems with his posting. I think he's gonna be good, but we're gonna be working with him on Wednesday, hopefully we can get somewhere. I don't think we'll be looking at cuts until the off-season though.

Do you wish you had Vinny in the lineup now that we see what he's doing on the 49er's board?

He's been doing good over there for San Francisco, and obviously I wish we had 22 pro-bowlers on this team, but we win some, we lose some. The way that board's looking though, he's a real good fit over there.

That has been a real problem so far getting things started early on. I think we'll have a much better shot next week considering we're not up against a great team like Indy. We might also need to get started well before the game starts next week as well.

Brakos, do you think you should have hurried the mods and created another thread quickly before threeputtsam had time to regroup and say the Texans are losers again?

Um... well... at the beginning things just looked like a bit of overreaction from him, but the way things have panned out since we do need to look over his posts and take critical action if we decide to do so.

Brakos at the half way point of the season would you say that Porky is your most valuable poster and will you try to sign him to a long term extension in the offseason or would you risk letting him become a posting free agent and sign with another board and risk him coming back and talking smack next year?

Well we're definitely going to take a look at re-signings at the start of the off-season, hopefully in February. I wouldn't call anybody an MVP of the team, but we've had our stand-outs this season.

What happen to your game time thread winning streak? And, what would you do different next time to prevent from L?

SAMURAITEXANS - Japan Sometimes(not Japan Times)

Well our biggest issue was early on around 11 or so when we had that merge-up with one of Brandon's threads, and that caused some havoc in our gameplan.

well, if this isn't YOUR playbook, who's did I steal?
(oops, must control outside voice!)

Yeah, we've been waiting for our practice squad guys to really spark up here lately, and we've had a couple move up into the main line-up. Hopefully you can make it up here.

are you talking negative rep or a simple /ignore?

We'll figure that out once we get there, but like I said, only if we decide to do so.

Well, uh... we'll do our best to get there, but you know how things go.

Brakos, what have you learned about game day thread starting this season?

Well, I noticed that it's a good thing to keep at it, because things have been pretty damn good so far.

one last follow-up to the Vinny question: What sort of compensation did we get from the SF boards in exchange for such an All-Pro talent? Two draft picks? Several terabytes of server space? A sizable contribution to the TT msg board fund? perhaps several DVDs full of new BotD picts? :D

We're not ready to release that information quite yet, but you'll hear when we are.

Brakos if you could pick a nickname for the trifecta of current Texans RB's what would it be?

Well I'm not the one that hands out nicknames. You should talk to the PR department.

Brakos,

When do you think you'll stop posting in my Threads?

When you get away from my podium. :bat:

Brakos,

Playoffs?! You wanna talk about... Playoffs?!

And I killed yet another thread. Man, I am on a roll this month.

As long as you keep your thread killing out of the gameday threads, I don't care.

Should we discontinue a manned space presence and go with more robotic craft? And speaking of our offense line, are we going to draft a Center next year?

It's a good idea, but I'm still worried about the AI's flexibility, so we'll keep our 5 guys in there until we can get that fixed. And we're also looking at taking a center around the 2nd, maybe trade down our 1st to pick up an early 3rd.

Well we knew this one was gonna be a tough one going into Indy, but the penalties really killed us, especially that one in the 4th that ended up giving the Colts a new set of downs.

He was. He just has nothing better to do. He's not on the payroll, so don't worry about it.

I'm not sure how much that call really resided on the coach. We talked with our guys upstairs and they didn't see any problems at the time, but obviously Indy's booth saw something we didn't and called us out on it.

Brakos, I realize we have had 5 positive posts and 4 that were actually not winners but could have gone the other way. Having said that, I like to look to the future. Have you noticed any posters on other message boards that might give up that MB and come to ours? If we could get a starting thread starter, I'd be willing to give up two seconds and any future posts about Sage Rosenfels. I know it's early, but no way can I focus on just this thread.

We've been looking at bringing in Kastofsna as a full-time poster, and hoping for the best. Also I have to wonder what somebody like Bulluck53 could bring to the table for us too. As far as starting out of the gate goes, we've been working on that in practice lately.

Only if he throws 8 TD's as well. But if you're hinting at what I think you are, then no.

Hey Brakos, I'm finally off IR....I thought you said I couldn't lose my starting job to injury? What gives?

See the Drew Bledsoe/Tom Brady episode of "Dear Modern Day NFL,"... there's a valuable "what have you done for me lately" lesson hidden inside.
:D

PFT's rumor mill has it that Khari offered you a smiley. What's gonna happen when Roger Goodell hears about this?

I have no idea what you're talking about. :user:

Brakos, is there any truth to the rumor that you have been looking through little holes in hotel room doors recently?
