Let me just express how grateful I am that this board is run the way it is with all the limits and restrictions it has on content of signatures and avatars etc.

This board is by far the easiest to read message board I have visited.

THANK YOU
Let me second that. This board is easy to look at and spend time on. There are just way to many BBS's that are just HORRID to the eyes.

Not true. So totally not true. There aren't to many RB's Tate would back up in the NFL. Thomas would have a hard time sticking to this roster. Wouldn't sell Forsett short either. In no way shape or form can you honestly believe that the RB talent is remotely "even".

So YOU say Bush would put up similar numbers, but then say numbers ALWAYS lie. Can't have it both ways there Digster.

And that's your 2nd wrong statement in all of this. Numbers don't lie. They don't always tell the whole story, but they don't ALWAYS lie.

If you are trying to make a name for yourself as an analyst, you're losing a lot of credibility with your line of thinking on this. It may be your opinion but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

"Numbers always lie" is a coward's way out. Just a horrible catchphrase.

Wins and losses are numbers. The score is numbers.

To say that numbers always lie means that actual performance is irrelevant. And then it's all about "talent." And then it's "this guy is just as good as that guy because I say so."

I've lost all respect for EmDiggy over this. Not going to watch any more of his videos.

Wow, I've wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt since early last season, but never really found anything solid to hang onto in your previews. Now, however, I don't think I will ever be able to take any of your analysis seriously.
No offense, I'm not trying to insult you or anything, but your assessment is off by several degrees of magnitude.

Just a hunch on my part but for this exchange I believe Diggy has left the building.

And my guess is that Reggie Bush only got 1000+ yards with the phins because they have nothing else going for them offensively. In a good offense like the Saints, Reggie Bush is irrelevant. When you have nothing else, Reggie Bush will get 1000+.

Default Re: Football Gameplan's 2012 Texans vs Dolphins

Too many of my fellow Texan comrades are focusing on a match-up comparison that while critical to both teams success if far from the only areas in which to focus ones attention. The key components of each teams game plan, should be discussed as a whole which EmDiggy delivers poignantly.

Texan defense must stay diciplined & not too aggressive, let rookie QB Tannehill expose himself. Texans need to play smart, stay loose but not over confident. Ryan can stretch plays with his athleticism/legs (will be fun to watch) buy time & as Diggy suggested his TE set could cause problems as we know one weakness of this Texan defense r linebackers in coverage. Brooks is questionable with a hip, so Merciuls may get his first start, if so expect Miami to attack him in run plays & delayed pitches & screens taking him out of position as he blows into the backfield. While the check marks do look promising the Dolphin Texan games have always been close & competitive. I'll also be watching Schaubs pass pro off the right side, hope Newton & Caldwell are ready for some Cameron Wakefiled @ blitz packages using Karlos Dansby & Kevin Burnett.

Default Re: Football Gameplan's 2012 Texans vs Dolphins

Our key to success in this game is force the offense onto Tannehill. If you shutdown the run early and force the phins to play from behind you are putting them in a weak position. Until Tannehill can show he's a good passer (he never did at A&M imo) they will run the offense from the ground. And that's not sustainable if you are playing from behind.

Gots to give EmDiggy his props. Reggie Bush is one talented Mofo.



Too bad he's too small to take the beating.
