At least during this half & I do realize it's not enough to evaluate on. Still, as noted in the Texans forum playoffs are where you expect layers to step up.
Nothing here folks is what I kept mumbling & wishing there was a movie or Jerry Springer to watch. In first half, I saw Short make a sack which was impressive, another good play and then a decent play where he actually took on more than one blocker. The sack was not from the NT position either so did not help me want to select him for that spot. As OK St is high powered O with a lot of passing, I expeted to see Short do some god thing and win me over. Did not happen.
Okay, second half starting..Purdue turns the ball over.
Game almost over, Purdue has 5 turnovers 55-7. With Purdue's defense on field a lot I expected Short to have a better showing...whoa he almost got to QB so that makes 4 plays. He did not seem to give up or tire significantly so that is a positive. I have moved him off my list of interests.
