    Any question who starts next week? Get ready Boulware - your up.

    Simmons - damn that guy cant stay in the lineup. Golden Oppurtunity slipped away again. Good luck on the recovery.

    Hutchins had a great game, he caused 2 turnovers.

    Sucks about Simmons though.

    Yeah... but now we are REALLY thin at the position. Time for some RS Magic (tm).

    Ouch - I was hoping he just sprained something

    That Boulware trade is looking very smart right about now. Better get him ready before week 3.

    its cc brown that im most worried about to be honest. the defense as a whole had a terrific game and i hope the trend continues regardless of who is starting back there.

    smith will find us someone...dont worry :)

    in that note did Boulware stay in the game after Simmons went out?

    I saw him on the field one time (on the punt) but never caught a glimpse of him later (might have missed it)

    Von Hutchins came in after Simmons got injured.

    610 reporting Simmons out for the season.

    I think they went with CC and Von. I didn't notice Boulware out there playing safety... but... I really wasn't looking that much.

    i saw him on that ST play as well but i dont recall ever seeing him in any of the defensive packages. even with the injury to simmons i dont think he will be starting next week - infantry said it best

    Yes it sucks, big time. But if the Defense can play like they did today on a consistent basis we will be okay. They looked like a cohesive unit out there.

    But Specnatz made a great observation during the watch party.....is it that our defense looked really good or their offense looked really bad? :specnatz:

    Either way, i am extremely pleased at how well they played......lots of football to come.....good times.

    Boulware was on the field for atleast one defensive snap for sure.
