With so many rookies contributing last year, bleacher report asks "what if":
The same bleacher report that called the Texans the #1 darkhorse to make the superbowl?
I can't wait for the offseason to be over.
Yeah but we got Slaton coming off his sophomoric slump.
LOL. 1-15, folks.
Dude! I gurantee you we win at least two games.
Bleacher Report is pretty much like a glorified messageboard that anybody (yes, even you, or me! Or that guy over there!) can write to. If it seems a little bi-polar it's probably because the authors of the articles are different people.
Somebody write an article about how Peytons forehead could lead the Colts down a troubled path this season and I will post it here for discussion.
If this, if that, if I had a dollar for every single prediction that didn't come true. Oh well, it's the off season, and there isn't a whole lot to do except bring up stuff like this.
He does bring up a point though, and that is we had a lot of rookies making contributions to the team last year. That means we drafted well. Hopefully we have that same "problem" every year.
I wish we had a good enough season to qualify for a sophomore slump but we've yet to even make the playoffs. The players must be really hard to motivate if they get excited about a 9-7 record.
Although judging by the team's inconsistent performances from week to week I wouldn't be surprised!!!
His forehead is actually beneficial to him and the Colts. You have to recognize that he's got the room to glob on a massive amount of dexmethasone gel on there. You see... when the sun catches it right, no defender alive can follow Manning's eyes and predict his throw. The glare is just too much. It's also why route running is absolutely imperative to a WRs success in Indianapolis. Without route running, nobody could ever catch a ball from Peyton Manning, not even our own Andre Johnson.
All hail the forehead.
I'd rather have the problem of our big-time rookies not getting enough early snaps because of the big-time veterans in front of them. Then, when those big-time veterans sign enormous free agent contracts, the young guys are ready to take their place.
But the early returns of the 2009 draft class were impressive, no doubt.
Then after the game the entire team can sit down to a nice movie reflected off Peyton's forehead.
It's ok. We'll just have another round of breakout rookie seasons to counter the sophomore slumps.
Good thing we got solid depth of vets if that happens
CLadwell might not even start IMO at least not every down
Mcain migt not even start has well
alot of these guyz arent full time starters
So we went from darkhorse to the glue factory? This site confuses me.
Give me a break, The only rookies who could have a slump that would really effect what the team did last season would be Glover and Cushing (who were the only players that were pretty much starting all year), the writer drastically exaggerates the contributions the other rookies had last year.
Most of the other rookies didn't start making plays or a impact until late in the year......so what the writer needs to take into account is what if just some of those rookies can provide that type of play all season long, how good can the Texans be then?
Couldn't agree more..
No. Wait. I couldn't agree more with THIS!
Then when you add first year starters (for our team) like Studdard, White, Pollard, Antonio Smith, Sean Cody, Diles (more or less, especially considering it's a new position) & Barber, not to mention new defensive coordinator, it shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone that we would be on the outside looking in at the play-offs.
I understand we were 1 play away from the play-offs, several times, and couldn't pull it off. But that's what young teams do.
Don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm thrilled, or ecstatic that we finished 9-7, or just missed the play-offs... But to think Kubiak can't get it done because of what he did in '09 with what he had in '09 just doesn't compute for me.
For the love of all that is holy, please no more Bleacher Report threads.
Bleacher Report = A report that makes me want to put bleach in my eyes because what is written is usually so stupid.
I know the off-season is long. And there is little original content. But 99.9% of BR hurts to read.
Don't know wh anyone quotes BR as a serious source. Kinda like saying Adams Jones is an upstanding citizen.
I don't know. Kinda makes the Koolaide taste better.
