Why would you give me a neg rep for that comment???

Davis is reported to go against travis johnson not okoye. At 6' 3" 305 TJ will hold his own I'm thinking.

I gave you neg rep? I tried to give positive, but I'm such a newbie I must have gotten it wrong. It was the first and only time I tried that feature out. Heck, I'm a zero whatever that means. I apologize. I tried to fix it but I have to spread around rep to others first according to the popups. So I gave badboy good rep and I still can't go into yours again.

I suck. Hopefully I didn't screw up badboy's rep too.

Actually, if your rep is low and you try to rep someone with significantly higher rep, it shows up with a different color because no rep was actually given.

At least, I think that's how it works.

Sounds like I have to have rep in order to give rep. Well, with what I bring to these boards that's gonna take a long, long time to do.

At first I was surprise that TJ/Okoye was the most wanted DT duo, I wasn't sure if TJ could handle nose tackle or if Okoye was ready to contribute right now. After watching today game though I think I should change my vote to them, TJ looked really good out there with the ones.

I think Okoye is going to be very good. He showed very good penetration on several plays. I posted in another thread that I thought he might have gotten a sack on the last play of the first half.

you can't give or take rep till you have 50 posts...it is one way to keep the trolls from coming in and starting new accounts just to skew everyone's rep.

T.J kinda made me nervous when he got drove back about 10 yards and pancaked early in the game (it was the first time his helmet came off)....That's something he needs to correct if he's going to be playing nose...

BUT....That early baptism just woke him up, and he played like the T.J I knew he could play like....

P.S. The Cowboys should be weary of Leonard Davis because T.J and Maddox simply made him look foolish all night long...

I like TJ but always viewed him as a 3-4 guy. He was drafted for Caper's scheme but suprised me this TC after I had already said he was a certain cut from the team. now that he's solidifided his roster spot I can't help but feel a little stupid for my short-sightedness.

In that case just a handfull more posts HodRod and then your on your way to the glorious road of dealing out rep.

keep it up, and welcome to the board


I haven't been able to watch ANY pre-season games which has ticked me off but im glad i can get some analysis from the posters over here. A couple months ago i was ready to write TJ off as a Capers bust, but im glad that my tune is about to change. Anyway im glad that we're debating this form a perspective of "who is better" as opposed to "who doesn't suck more"
