Things had better turn around, because people are going to leave this team (and not just the fans!). D.Rob is a dude that has a will to win, and if not here, then we will see him in a Colts or Pats uni before we know it. That'll be a sad day when one of our best players bolts because we consistently suck.

As far as the Colts/Pats game, I guess I'm stuck watching the Texans. I'm not giving up time with my boy to hang out at a sports bar where I won't be able to concentrate and enjoy either game. I'll just have to catch it on NFL Replay.
You can say "Mario is doing some good things and we see improvement when we watch the tape but has a long ways to go" and this still represents needing improvement and not exaggerating his play.....a mildly upbeat disappointment. I'll take that over the b.s.

As far as the game. I thought about buying it since I have Direct TV but I'm not sure.

Default Re: Dunta-Is this true?

Let me start this by saying that I think Dunta is easily our best defensive player, and I shudder to think what the D would look like without him,,,

but,...

...I always get concerned when players start calling each other in public. I cannot decide if Dunta is trying to be aleader and motivate Mario or if he frustration is just boiling over. My issue is the "every play" crack, as I could easily see this causing alot of resentment within the locker room (espically in light of the end of the Tennesse game). This could also be a sign that Kubiak is on the verge of losing this team.

Don't get me wrong I like the fact that Dunta alsways speaks his mind, and I fully supported him in his comments about Carr last season. But the difference is that Dunta is making these comments in the middle of the season.

Then again maybe Dunta can do what John McClain cannot.

Just the thoughts that came to my mind when I read/heard the interview.

Hell it could be better than the super bowl! The NFC's best is not even close to matching up with NE and or Indy! Dallas is a damn good NFC team and NE just demolished them. NE is playing what could be the best footbal anyone has playe din 10 years. Washington had a top 5 defense and NE just racked up 52 on them.

Don't see anything negative here. Dunta isn't afraid to speak his mind, he's just an honest person. He's not dissing Mario, he is underperforming.

By the way, ESPN is hyping the game and all, but why isn't this game the Monday Night game or the Sunday night game at the very least. That just doesn't make any sense to me.

Remember, a player's body is his product and no one buys broken products.

Default Re: Dunta-Is this true?

I don't think there is anything wrong with what Dunta said. He's earned the right to say that by playing the way he has. I also liked how he called out his team for not playing with enough intensity when interviewed after the last game. Somebody needs to light a fire under these guys, and I don't think the coaches are doing enough of that. I hope he doesn't leave, but I don't blame him if he does.

Dunta's next contract lies in his game film...he wants a big contract so he will do what he needs to do to look good on film. That is the real fact of NFL life....he ain't gonna coast.

The networks pay big money for the rights to NFL games. And both the Pats and Colts are AFC teams, which are the domain of CBS. The network has as much right to this game as anyone under the current agreements.

The bigger question is why didn't the NFL set this one up from the point of scheduling last Spring to be a primetime game.

And for the record, NFLN is hyping this one as much, if not more, than ESPiN.

I can't possibly see where the Texans are stupid enough to let him go. I just don't see it. He'll get a big fat signing bonus and be here for a while longer. Dunta is good for us, be he ain't the best in the league. There are better corners than him. But for us, he's invaluable.

Default Re: Dunta-Is this true?

Dunta's been here since 2004 . In that time he's lost a lot more than he's won and if I were him , I would'nt use to much finese when describing the situation ... what are they going to do trade me to a worse team .

The problem is who'll be after Dunta ... Demeco ... is he going to get run off for saying something bad about an underperforming teamate .

I think this is a calculated risk on Dunta's part to right the ship . It's a risk of desperation though .

Default Re: Dunta-Is this true?

I heard a good bit of Dunta's show yesterday. I have started to check it out more because he is very honest, and doesn't just spew out Craig Biggio style sound bites. I heard him pretty much call most of his teammates everything but the pillsbury dough boy. I mean he didn't come right out and say these guys are soft, but the inference was definetely there. I also remember him specifically saying that we have some young guys that need to get better NOW, and to hell with potential. He said he isn't getting any younger, and he's tired of waiting for these guys to pull their weight.
