    I posted this on clutchfans but I know many of ya'll don't go there.

    Anyway, a friend of mine who runs a store near Texas City just called me about an hour ago saying Mathis and another man (Randy Hines) came into his store and Mathis had a boot on.

    He asked Mathis what was wrong and he just said it was a "reacuring injury" and that he looked "down and out" and was limping around.

    Randy Hines played QB at Grambling and was last in the NFL with the Ravens as a WR, he will be working out for the Texans today.

    Not sure if Mathis will be out for the year but he is sure to be out for a while.

    Hopefully it's a fashion statement and a lost bet.

    Just like Bennie J. this guy can't catch a break. Unlike Benny, this guy has done something for our team.

    walking boot or not, seems like he would stay off it for a while.

    This guy is like your favorite sports car. Flies when driven...but a little nick and the whole vehicle is out of commission.

    So do you think this Williams fellow will get any returns? From what I have seen, it looks to be Wynn and maybe even Davis on the KR.

    I remember them being pretty high on this guy in training camp but we just had so many good receivers: AJ, KW, JJ, AD, Keenan, Bethel, Jerome, Anderson, and this guy.

    So... now we've got KW, AD, Anderson, and this guy.

    This is just getting ridiculous.

    Yeah, you're gonna be like a preseason game with all those unfamiliar names out there. Maybe this kid and AD can cause a ruckus....stranger things have happened.

    Hell who knows with Colston tearing up the league last year. I think Schaub is a QB that makes the WRs better though, its just that our running game sucks right now.

    Houston, again.
    And that is the KEY point right now. The QB and the WRs are good enough to get the job done not world class, but good enough, but only if we generate some sort of ground game. Doesn't have to be a 250 yard devastating type of thing, just reasonably consistant to keep the defense honest and take time off the clock while resting the defense. The other key is turn overs...can't have them. We don't have the firepower available right now to be able to overcome that sort of thing.

    Look for JacobyJones to get the KO and Punt return duties when JJ comes back healthy.

    Williams looked good to me in preseason action but got cut due to the numbers game at WR. I particularly remember the playaction td pass he caught from Sage in I think it was the Cardinals game.

    Glass half full, the injuries will expose every one to targets. We should slay the #4-6 WR back ups once and for all. I have no probelm running the passing offense to the futrue HOFer canidate. Just think if we're going to grow up they've got to make the bench guys more oportunities. Believe it or not, other guys besides A.J. have been running free in alot of patterns. The crutch is gone now and MS must grow up if they wanna play off run this year. Spread the ball and the play selection around. Give them a chance to suceed.
