In this game, despite only giving up 13 points and the offense doing nothing, they blamed themselves and said they should have played better. They blame themselves no matter the score if the team loses. That's just their mentality. I saw the clip where he said that. He isn't just saying something for the hell of it. Urlacher has never liked the media so he isn't that friendly to them most of the time. Whenever he says something like that then he really means it.
Foster is stud. I don't get to watch many Texans games but I see why you all think so highly of him. In a game like this, he adjusted to a notoriously crappy field on a rainy day and still did his thing while Forte went AWOL. You all definitely have a good one.
That catch was amazing. For a RB to make that was unreal. I don't think Forte, who is known for his good hands as a RB, could have made that catch. When they were showing the replay, I was expecting to see that he lost control or trapped the ball. It was very clean. The guy has skills.
Yeah, collinsw. and A. Michls were saying "hang on, let's see if the ground helped him control the ball or let's see if it was a catch first and that they couldn't believe Matt Schaub made such a perfect throw in like a 3 inch window"
OP, thanks. Great compliment from Urlacher.
