Mathis was our MVP last week too.

He feel to the fourth round because he was from a small school and had questionable hands. He was accused of 'double catching'. At least, thats what I read somewhere...

Gaff and Math rocked today. I kept expecting Math to pull a TD run off the kick-off.

jerome mathis has more kick returns for TD's in his young career then the tampa bay buccaneers have in their 30 year franchise history.

After his play the last two weeks, the opposing teams will either kick a squibb kick or try to kick it away from him. He is too good for them to continue to kick the ball to.

If he stays a Texan(and I hope he does) he will not be a number one but he could probably be a pro bowl player alongside AJ. With those two out there, the defense will be too stretched.

Yeah, but as a WR, I honestly don't expect too much from him...yet. He still looks like a rookie (had a big drop last weekend). He's like Morency IMO. A guy with lots of ability (even more than DD IMO) but is just obviously inexperienced. I expect him to really improve as the season goes on though. Today's TD catch will hopefully be a big confidence booster.

As for having him on special teams... WOW. Givin our Offensive situation (it's not like our O played that much better today), Mathis' presence on special teams is really critical. This was definitely a break-out game for him as a returner. Hopefully, he'll be able to do this for us on a consistent basis, not just because of bad special teams from the Browns.

Mathis has proved to alot of people that doubted him that he is good. All I heard at the beggining of the season was swinton and thomas this swinton and thomas that. Now I see most of you worshipping mathis. Check out the players before automatically judging them next time

I knew he could help. I just want him and AJ on the field at the same time. Last time I mentioned putting him opposite of Andre for the spped threat and openings some said "he hasn't proven himself as a receiver yet", so I wondered how he would get the chance to if you don't get him out on the field? Now all we need to do is get the tight ends involved still trying the running game and see what happens. If Vick can win a game throwing to Crumpler all day, I'm sure we can win more just adding them in with all the rest of our options. You don't have to have an Antonio Gates or Jeremy Shockey to move the ball with in the TE position all of the time either.
Let's work!

Dare I say, with two legitimate WR's on the outside the Texan's might be able to use Gaffney the way he is supposed to be used. Like Stokely is used. Maybe a TE would be open in the middle more often. We have the RB. The big question mark is this. Can Carr read the defense fast enough to find the open man?

Can the line hold anyone back? I still think the line looked sloppy. DD had to make things happen; the line wasn't opening holes. The pass protection was still bad, too. Not as bad as the past, but I'm willing to assume that's because of the Brown's D-line and not our O-line.

I forgot the Entire Browns DL is in Denver now. That is a big hit for the Browns defense.

Everyone on this board has hyped Mathis and finally he has started producing. He was slowed by injuries early, but now we are seeing the true talent of the small school star. It is ashame that most small schoolers get drafted late, but hell I will take a kid like Mathis anyday. Now we need AJ healty and Bradford gets to watch the games from now on. BTW did you see they played Armstrong and he caught every pass thrown at him except for that PI that was missed, that would have been ball on the one yard line. ******* Refs...

If our opponent tries to squib kick to one of the guys in front, that could still work in our favor for field position.

God bless Jerome Mathis - and Dunta and Domanick, too. Amen.
