Yeah you are right, I remember seen that either picture or video. Anyway, that was really funny and every time I see Holliday on Tricycle it just cracks me up.

Go Tricycle!!! Burn that rubber!!!

Because the O line this year just isn't as good as last year, we are going to really need the occasional TDs he will get us. I'm certain that Kubiak knows that, and it's a reason he kept Holliday despite the fact that Holliday is essentially a one trick pony that Kubiak normally doesn't keep.

you'll get no argument from me on that.

Both the NFL records for kick off returns for TDs and punt returns for TDs in a single season is 4. I like to see him break one or both of them.

3 in 4 games in pre-season, it he can dish just half of that up in the regular season the record is broken.

I like the TD's he's produced, but the extra yardags on returns and the subsequent better field position is going to make a HUGE difference this season, if he can keep it up that is

One thing I know, I'll be excited, not mortified, with returns this year!

You two above me realize that Holliday had almost as many fumbles on returns as he did TD's right?

I'm expecting to watch some of his returns with my hands covering my face.

I'll take that any day of the week. TD = TD, INT = ?.

No longer will I be hiding my head in the pillow whenever we're returning

Boom or bust isn't so bad, if there is an actual boom once in a while.

It will be tough. Alot of knockoffs will go through the end zone and alot of punts will go out of bounds.

Possibly true but as pointed out several times, that's not a bad thing. A guaranteed start at the twenty and on punts the ball is more often than not spotted anywhere from 10 - 15 yds further up field than where it touches down out of bounds due to the angle of the punt.

Win - win situation in my book. And when they do kick it to The Tricycle he has a great chance to waterbug all the way to the house! I love watching fearless fly do his thing.

Bring on the Phins!

I wish it was that simple, but treating practice as if they were the Packers or Steelers wouldn't have made that Texans defense any better...

I agree, but they could have been a tad bit better had they applied a hard working attitude for the rookies. I know the defense still would have been terrible, but when you are somewhat laid back, and then get your tails whipped, you are less confident than you would have been if you had a serious attitude throughout the workouts. That's just how I feel at least.

You're assuming one day was representative of the whole camp.

Wasn't it though? Remember this was 2 years ago, and there's no worth in arguing over it. But wasn't practice somewhat laid back as opposed to what it is like now? I mean, I remember reading they were really preparing for Indy, and they did, but what about the rest of the season? I just felt more could have been done. But once again, it was 2 years ago. We already know how that season turned out.

What do you mean by this? If they were training really hard for Indy they were training really hard. They don't prepare for any team in training camp. Game plans are put in on Tuesdays of each game week.
