    Apparently, Petey's "coverage" of CJ is making football lore like Bo Jackson running over the Boz...

    no joke Ziggy, I don't know who this writer is and maybe I am a glass half empty guy but after listening to some on the boards about Pitts, this guy has a different take on him (or both of our guards)

    "Dunta Robinson has come back from knee surgery and played like he has a clubfoot. I'm thinking he needs to be a safety for the rest of the year if he does play."


    ouch.

    When was this written? It seems a few weeks dated.

    DeMeco has looked much improved over the past few weeks. They've blitzed a lot more. And Dunta's looking better every week. Pretty spot on for the most part, but could use some updating

    Houston, again.
    He has actually watched games. Kind of refreshing for a media type. Saw the same things we have. I like the fire Dick Smith comment.

    At one point when talking about Sage, the writer referred to "Both the games he played in", meaining it was written after the Minnesota game and before the Baltimore game.

    DeMeco definitely looked like himself today, its fun seeing him flying around the field. Even when the DTs get blown off the line he can make a play. Thank goodness the Browns didn't stick to the run game, they were getting about 5 yards a pop.

    Yea, there was one play where he stuck Lewis at the LOS and had me saying, "there's the old DeMeco"

    Honestly, if the author had not signed his name to this piece i would have thought it to be a post from one of the more observant guys on this board. Well, minus the over-the-top attempts at Jenna Jameson and Sha Na Na humor.

    Today, the Texans blitzed. Look at the results. I'm not suggesting it would work in every game, against every team. Just that it beats the hell out of what they've tried to do the previous 10 weeks.

    Yeah I don't see how anyone (coaches especially) can argue against the blitz at this point. Worst case scenario I would rather die with the blitz and have a shot at making a play than die a slow and inevitable death like we have been this entire season. Let me be clear, I have no illusions about this defense turning it around and becoming anything resembling a top NFL unit, but if you let me pick my poison I take the blitz.

    I am not defending smith at all because I ....well the article states what I think but I wonder if with the limit of blitzing has anything to do with our safeties sucking

    We have had crappy safety play since 2002. You might think upper management would have done something about it by now.

    Some of you might be surprised that Briessels play (expecially run blocking) is considered by most media and pro scouts as very good.
