Well Tom brady was a back up at one time, matt schaub, brooks reed, to many current starters to name used to be back ups. Just cause your a back up dont mean you cant play with the "current" starters. Kind of a dumb answer TBH, just saying.

Okay, I'll concede the 21 pts in the first qtr thing... I mean, Arian can bust a long one for six on the first drive, A.J. or O.D. can catch a long bomb on a play action for the second one, then the third one can be our standard 6-8 play drive. All that can be done in one qtr...

But the making GP happy part....
I dunno.....
We can put a man on the moon or land rovers on Mars but certain things - like exceeding the speed of light or making GP happy - are simply beyond current technology.

I would like the Texans to get a big lead and get TJ some snaps. And allow him to run the offense, not just handoff. I would also like to see Mercilus punish Gabbert.

I said there is a REASON they are not starters. I will spell that reason out for you if you can't quite put your finger on it. The reason is the coaching staff believes they are not more ready to execute the gameplan more than the starter. I for one have more faith in the coaching staff than you. Like I said win the game first quit getting ahead of yourself its 14-7 now. Nobody is resting until the superbowl is won!

Post-game grades.....

B+ --- OK, sure, whatever. Of course Chad Henne's going to throw for four touchdowns against a good passing defense after Blaine Gabbert gets hurt. I mean, duh. The Jaguars, Paul Posluszny in particular, played with a lot of heart on defense but just couldn't close it out. Justin Blackmon had 236 receiving yards, which just seems like something that didn't happen. What a weird freaking game. HELLO JALEN PARMELE [furiously Googles "Jalen Parmele"].


D --- The Texans became the first team to ever score two times in a single overtime and Andre Johnson went berserk, catching 14 passes for 273 yards and a walk-off touchdown, but if you're the Texans, you can't be happy about what happened here. You got shredded by Chad Henne!

A loss is a loss. A win is a win. I'll take the W grade every time

This is the NFL. Unpredictable things happen.

SB, after today's game, isn't that kind of talk a little premature?

You know ..... They prepare all week for Gabbert , they looked pretty damn good defensively up until Hene came in. He's a different QB ....who can get the ball down the field accurately.
Hell , he's likely a better QB but I feel like had they prepared for Hene like they did for Gabbert they dont struggle as much.

I wanted to see Keyshawn Martin step up and I was glad to see Graham come back with a very good game. I really wanted to see Mercilus rise to the occasion today and I didn't even hear his name called.

I don't think he's ever had a decent running game or two receivers of the calibre that Blackmon & Shorts appear to be.

He's big, he's got an arm, & he wasn't flustered or do anything stupid yesterday. He might not be an All-Pro, & he might not be the future of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he's a competent stop gap to allow them to build that team until that franchise QB comes along.

Don't get me wrong, we helped him out on some of those big plays, but only some of them.

Agreed, both did well. I am thinking of moving TE off my mock. Someone else who seemed to have a good game was Bradie James ILB.
