    I'll believe it if they hold Manning under 250 and 1 TD...

    I like their spirit! They know what they have to do to "turn things around," now they just gotta DO IT!! I believe in them, I really do!! NO way in hell do these guys wanna go out and make fools of themselves AGAIN on MNF! As bad as they have been, they still have a lot of pride! The D will do their job!! NOW, all we gotta worry about is which Matt Schaub will show up. PLEASE football gawds, let it be the pro- bowler!!

    No kidding! I'm just happy in the fact that someone took the bull (yes, pun intended) by the horns and showed some leadership!:texflag:

    I'm not poo-pooing it. I think it's a great thing.

    And I'm hoping it yields results.

    I wonder what was said. Hopefully it was a speech filled with inspiration, passion and knowing AS probably a little anger and some f bombs. I know I'm tired of seeing it, it's good to know THEY are tired of seeing it. I think we'll all be impressed if we start seeing improvement and where you sit on the hope scale is up to you but I'm not really expecting much. Geez, if they just pick themselves off the floor and give the impression that they are a professional football defense we'll have a hell of a better time through the end of the season.

    Hopefully, it was a "Just do your damn job and don't worry about anything else! And bring it every damn play! You get tired, get off the field and let the next man step up.


    I really think that everyone has been trying to do too much, and worried that the youngsters need help doing theirs.

    Cushing missing the first 4 games threw the D out of kilter, and they got to get it back!

    Players only meetings are for teams that are young or still trying to find their identity.

    I think it is good anytime units get together and that this is an action that fits in to the accountability theme.

    Antonio Smith learned his team communication skills at an early age.

    I agree. We should be excited that someone on the team took the initiative to hold a players-only defensive meeting, especially after considering the fact that their captain, Demeco Ryans, has just been lost for the season. I'm proud of Antonio for stepping up as a leader, not only with his talk, but with his walk thus far in the season as well.
