Carr steps back to pass. Robaire Smith begins his route. Plod-plod-plod-plod-turn.....Pop!

Robaire catches the ball and a cornerback leaps onto his shoulders. Robaire turns slowly in place as a Safety races towards him. Plod-plod-plod...

Robaire gains a yard as a linebacker wraps himself around one of his legs. The cornerback hanging on for dear life loses his grip and falls to the ground. Just then another linebacker and a safety hit Robaire from opposite sides.

Plod-plod-plod..... Robaire gains another yard. The linebacker trying to wrap up Robaires leg falls off and Robaire gets another yard.

Finally a defensive end and the all of the remaining secondary jump on Smith who takes one more shaking step and then falls forward for a gain of another four yards.

Total time elapsed: 35 seconds, total yards gained: 7. Robaire staggers towards the sideline as Junior Ioane comes in to give him a break. Juniors not as good as Robaire so he only gains 4 yards on the pass he catches. David Carr ends up with 126 yards passing for the day but completes all but one of his passes. That one went to Corey Bradford who was uncovered in the endzone while everyone crowded around Gary Walker running a slow-mo slant. Corey dropped it.
That's funny, but these coaches just might try it. Better watch what you write. You might get your wish...........................

I really do believe that Mathis has made his mark on this team and Bradford has spelled the end of his career in Houston yesterday.

all i know is whenever carr throws the ball to him chances are he'll be open and he'll drop the ball...what's the point of being open if you're not going to catch the freakin ball...i'd say our starters should be andre and gaffney with armstrong as the slot guy and mathis worked in there in a heavy rotation...bradford should be cut and we need to try and pick up another guy

Even Gaffney has stepped up his game in the great one's absense, but Sadford has been outplayed by a third-string blocking TE.

They need to get it over with, rearrange the WR depth chart since they might be done jacking with the OL.

Assuming AJ's out...Gaffney, Mathis, Armstrong (Slot), Bradford (splinters).

i think what's really sad is we chose to re-sign him instead of signing burress or even going after guys like quincy morgan who had a really good game for the steelers last night...just goes to show you that casserly might not know everything about players and their abilities

Free agents are free. Why would Burress want to come to this short bus offense when he got a huge offer in New York? Morgan is pretty much a clone of Corey Bradford.

This team has obviously many holes to fill, although it is hard to really judge some of them accurately IMO due to the poor level of coaching we have but ... AJ, Gaffney, Mathis and Armstrong looks like an area of "strength" along with RB on this team so draft and free agent efforts should look to fill bigger needs.

Just add a viable TE to the receiver mix above via the draft or free agent market (Joppru too big a gamble at this point) and we will really be on to something combined with DD. Of course, that comment assumes we finally invest in LT, RG, and perhaps RT (whether we spent 10M or not).

That should leave room to address other needs...CB, Safety (Coleman) and LB

What happened to the days of 70 yard bombs to bradford? I loved those. Send him up and out, and see who comes down with the ball.

vinny man during FA burress was having problems finding a home we could have easily gotten him for probably a little more than we spent on bradford...i know morgan has had his share of bad games but since he's been at pittsburgh he's played a lot better than when he was at cleveland or dallas...imo bradford shouldn't even be in this league

Burress has a 6 year $25 mil contract with the Giants. I'd bet we could have gotten him for 6 years $27 mil, but either way that is a whole lot more than a little more than we spent on Bradford.
