    Radio Sports 610 reporting that Jason Babin and Phillip Buchanon have been benched for Shante Orr and Demarcus Faggins who will start the game against the Bengals. :yahoo:

    Again, many more changes needed, but yesterday and today are good starts.

    Next, we can work on benching Casserly :challenge

    Maybe it is Anderson who will start, but I thought I heard Orr.

    I may be wrong. idonno:

    All I know, is Babin will be riding the pine to open the game against the Bengals.

    Orr replaced Babin during the last game. Anderson is also an OLB, maybe he plays Peek's side.

    Nice. I was just thinking earlier that the decision to fire a coach was nice but it wouldn't upset the mindset of the team. I think this will do. I also would like to see Ioane in a few times more. He seems to make a play or two.

    I like the moves....but why is this happening right now?

    Why didn't this happen during training camp, or after game 1?

    Orr has been solid every time when he's in the game. I think it was the Atlanta game last year when he made a few awesome plays although he was limited in playing time.

    And Buchanon should have also been benched after game 1.

    Again, it's just more confusing than ever. At what point did Capers just decide to pull the switch? To me, if he makes these two player moves, he knows he should have made them weeks ago or even in training camp.

    Is CAPERS really pulling these moves or is it someone above him TELLING him to do this and he gets to be the face? If Capers is doing this, and this is his doings, including the Palmer firing, then he sure waited a heck of a long time to make what he is now trying to say is a logical series of decisions he needed to make.

    I still say something's fishy in H-Town, and it ain't the oysters.

    If Capers really made all these moves on his own, then on one hand he gets a high-five from me. But the other hand I stick behind my back because he should have made some drastic moves during the preseason. The bad play of Babin and Buchanon didn't just start last week. Any sane person knows that.

    BUt, I guess if you're going to fire the OC, you might as well use the momentum and do some more shaking up to show the team that it's not just coaches who are on the bubble.

    Go figure.

    While he's at it, Capers can admit he should have kept Swinton for kick returns AND punt returns. At least go back and get JJ Moses (if he'd even agree to play for us!). Morency is a joke at KR.

    You know, going back and getting Moses would not be a decision I would laugh at. I would really be happy to see they are doing something to address the issue. It doesn't totally make up for the departure of Swinton but it apologizes.

    I know they could get rid of a guy like Lewis Sanders to sign Moses.

    I also wonder if this is more due to trying to get ready for the Bengals.

    Faggins isn't much of an upgrade to me.

    make buchanon somewhat useful. make him return all kickoffs and punts. who cares if he gets hurt. maybe he will do some showtime instead of blowtime.

    Can we get a really long bench? One that streches very far out of the stadium. Thats where PBuc should be sitting. Way out there.

    Did our Front Office do anything right in the past 2 off-seasons ?

    honestly, I can only see screw-ups.

    As long as he can get into a tackling stance, its an upgrade. Doesn't have to actually tackle anyone. Small steps...2 hand touch, tackling stance, actual tackle.

    Did you see Buchanon on that last touchdown run on Sunday? Nobody on the corner would have been the equivalent.
     
  19. This is a direct reflection of Casserly. It slaps him right in the face that these two have been demoted.

    Yes I saw him. I seem to remember hearing Faggins name mentioned though on a lot of completions going to the opponents.

    Wasn't Faggins the corner covering Randle El (I think it was him) on that one long pass that Ben had 2 minutes to throw the other day? He moved around to his right and threw the ball across the field; the receiver jumped up and caught the ball and the corner looked clueless. Wasn't that Faggins?
