Default huh?

Every newspaper, tv station that carries games, website, and stadium scoreboard I've ever seen abbreviates "yards" as YD or YDS.

I'm not sure if that was his problem with my post, or even if it was my contention that YDs are more important than TDs. It might've been my opinion that Moses has proven himself. If that's the case, I can't say anything more; we all know the saying about opinions.

(BTW, there were 13 KR for TD last year; 2 players had 2, 9 had 1. Seems like a pretty small-sampled stat to put much stock in...)

I'm so glad Thompson was wrong. I'm not happy about some other cuts, but I guess that's the way it goes. Moses earned his spot.

Default Caper's take on JJ

From MARK BABINECK, AP
Quote:
``I just felt after watching us go through preseason, we're getting ready to play for real and we aren't experimenting anymore,'' Capers said Sunday. ``J.J.'s a guy I have confidence in, and he went the whole year without putting the ball on the ground.''
See you guys in the next cut JJ thread, sometime during the '05 training camp.

As it turns out, the Texans beat writer has no insider information. Not surprising.

It's not just the lack of insider information. If he had been making his predictions based just on the same observations that we are privy to, the chances of him making a prediction that Moses would be cut would be slim. It makes him sound like he doesn't know what he's talking about. Many people, amateur and expert alike, changed their minds about Moses's status after Thursday's game. Not just his performance, but the way the coaches handled the return assignments as well.

Cluelessness or laziness - neither one is something I want from a reporter.

Default 3rd TE

I'm glad Moses made it as our 3rd TE Really, I'm glad JJ and Starling both made the team. Moses definitly showed the most as a returner throughout preseason.

It's possible Thompson's article deadline was before Thursday's game, but I doubt it.

Moses if you're reading this, I want you to know that I have been praying for you.

I am glad to see Kid Din-o-Mite made the team and proved alot of people wrong. I feel having a guy with his attitude and determination is exactly what you need in a Kick Returner. I hope to see Moses make some big returns this season.
