    Another classic, no nothing about the Texans article but this one quote just killed me.

    Man and all that time I thought he was fast, but I guess the opposing kick off teams were just really slow.:gun:

    i agree that the #2 WR position is the one to keep an eye on, but anyone can tell you that.

    ESPN stinks. mathis can run a sub 4.3 (pre injury)

    Well, if you asked them, they'd tell you that, no, Mathis is not fast ANYMORE, because he has that plantar fascitis problem. LOL. :user:

    I like how the Texans let Eric Moulds go as a free agent.

    I guess I missed the part where he was sought after by other teams.

    What they meant was that he doesn't have the speed to be an end in the top of the NFL. Because ends need to be strong he is too fast and not strong enough to be in the NFL therefore, like any sports fan knows, they say he doesn't have end top end speed which they were nice enough to shorten to top-end speed. We should be so lucky.

    Do they even research the subject of their articles? One accurate piece, is that too much to ask? Except for Michael Smith that is.

    Typical ESPN "expert" analysis. They don't call themselves the leader in sports or whatever for no reason.

    I thought they just dressed up in Liederhosen and sang Huey Lewis tunes from the Sports CD.

    How much does the job pay, and does the company reimburse for the wacky tobacco that needs to be consumed prior to writing these stories?

    Seriously, I feel like I've lost a few moments of my life when I read articles that provide me with absolutely no redeeming information. We should get paid to read this garbage, IMO.

    Without reading the article, Ill go out on a limb and assume that when they talked about the #2WR position, Oline some how came up.

    They said that Jerome Mathis' problem was his lack of top-end speed.
