His take on the Texans and the season opener:
And how much he plans to work LJ:
I think Herm might not have all of his brain cells left.
thanks, yea looks like they think they are ready and prepared, that was nice of herm all he did was compliment us, looks like LJ wont be getting as many carries this season (IMO) and looks like herm really like Michael Bennett as a back to use when LJ is tired or when ever
Did he get paid a bonus every time he used the word "good?"
Here's a copy of Herm's script:
"That guy at "Insert Position and name here" is good. Fast guy...he's good."
Herm completely ignored Mathis. Hopefully he can remind Herm about how good he is.
*in my best robotic voice*
The course is "good"
I feel "good"
I like my chances.

Mathis hasn't done anything all preseason really. He had one decent run back and a couple dropped passes IIRC. He was a threat 2 years ago, last year hurt, and this year is a big ? mark. I hope he shows up to play Sunday.
It's better than execute.
Herm has this weird look to him. IMO, there's a big difference in the tone between Gary Kubiak and Herm Edwards. Kubiak seems calm, confident and content with his preparations. Herm on the other hand, is a tough guy to call. Either he thinks they're going to win the Superbowl or they're in for a long season. Im hoping for the latter.
Jacoby Jones just blasted a hole through the hull of the Jerome Mathis ship.
I mean, seriously, Jacoby has been electric in returns AND in receiving...and I think Mathis knows he's just been leapfrogged.
I predict a trade or an outright release of Mathis as the Jacoby Jones Show continues to roll out every Sunday around noon time. Mathis is going to implode at some point and revert back to the twirp he had seemingly grown out of being ...until Jacoby rolled onto the highlight reels, and now (IMO) Mathis is going to find himself "pressing" a lot more in order to show his worth.
I hate to be so matter-of-fact about it, but Mathis (IMO) is as good as done due to Jacoby and his ability to be everywhere at the right time. Only an injury to JJ can save Mathis.
Now...if Mathis pulls a TD return or great returns out of his bumpkus a few times early in the season, then all bets are off. It just seems that Mathis has spiraled downward a little over the summer as JJ seems to be flourishing in the spotlight.
I love how coaches talk about other teams. They could be playing the worst team in the history of the league but they'll still have to say "They have some positive things going there. [Quarterback] throws the ball well and so and so has playmaking abilities." Meanwhile that team is 0-15.
they have to cover their asses just in case.
I thought it was Mathis for KR and Jones for PR?
Dang, what did Mathis do to you? Kick your dog? Steal your girlfriend? Holy cow, man!
There is no way Mathis is released. If he were going to be released, he would have been released with or before the cuts to 53. Obviously Kubiak is pleased with his progress and his attitude.
Regardless, he is an asset to us. He pretty much won us the Raiders game last year, and I doubt he will disappoint.... so long as he is healthy. He may have lost a step, but he is still one of the fastest on the field.
We will see.
"you play to win the game, YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!"
yeah dude... mathis is still a great KR
Earth to Herm: The Texans run big elements of Denver's offense but do not run Denver's offense.
Herm got a ton of grief after KC looked bad in last year's preseason game when the Texans booted them to death.
I agree with this: Herm Edwards: 'I Did a Terrible Job'
I still can't figure out how Herm got the KC job. Exactly what did Carl Peterson see in Edwards' 39 and 41 record with the Jets that told him this guy was a winner?
It's the good ol' boy system, circa 2007. Edwards was a CB with the Eagles when Peterson was the personnel guy.
