Default Allan Ball

I realize many people see him as the whipping boy, but he has been a silver lining in our horrible special teams play this season. He has done fairly well as our gunner and always seem to make some sort of heads up play on special teams. I've been fairly impressed with him.

He has been so good on special teams that we are officially adding another L to his first name.

As long as ball sticks to the ST's. He's pretty tall, tbh I'd feel better if he converted to safety, I just don't trust him at corner.

p.s.
Owen Daniel has been so good we actually took a letter away.

He's still with them - the Broncos have only played one game since they signed him.

This is why I said during PS that I was pretty sure he would make the roster.

Ball was a good tackler on ST even when he was with the Cowboys.

Plays with his balls to the wall, his recovery skills are ballistic and he's got feet like a ballerina.

Give Ball (because we all know he sucks in D-coverage) in special teams but at the same time he's "okay" and I mean "okay" in coverage..... That said, can we agree that (someone who I blew this guy up) is having a really good year----- Kareem Jackson???

Come correct Texans fan.............. Kareem Jackson has played well, thus far!

While I'm not calling Allstar a liar, as I'm sure his statement is truthful and accurate on a personal basis, at least some of us would prefer the term "figuratively".
