    Monday Night Football
    Houston at San Diego 9:20 pm CDT ESPN

    Opening this as a game week thread for news/quotes/cheers/chatter or whatever.

    I don't care who opens these throughout the season -- there's no mojo here like the gameday thread.

    The Texans owe the Chargers a big whoopin'. I hope the Chargers get their full payment Monday Night.

    Man, if Whitney can be a beast on the edge that'd be huge.

    Yeah. That was funny. Sounded to me like Te'o was talking on the phone to his imaginary GF, handed the phone to Cierre, who then talked to her for a bit, and then gave the phone back to Te'o.

    The cojones on that scammer.

    Teo handed him the phone once to talk to his girlfriend. Wood took the phone, said hello, thought nothing of it.

    For those of you who might not know much about Wood, he was suspended last season for two games although Coach Kelly never said exactly why, some intimated booze but what I was able to find out was MJ more than likely. I really like this kid and thought he turned it around once on field last season. Kept his pie hole shut when another started. Here are some tidbits for your consumption:

    "First of all, NEVER underestimate your opponent. All this “we’ll be fine without Wood for the Navy game” is really stupid. Second, I am really getting sick of ND players getting in trouble and acting like bustouts. After reading Cierre Wood on twitter, it’s no surprise. He thinks it’s cool to talk and SPELL like a gangsta. Hard to believe he’s a college senior, let alone at ND, and if anyone deserved to get expelled it was Tommy Rees for fighting with a police officer. He doesn’t deserve to step foot on ND campus after that."

    Any insight on a reason for the suspension?

    "Ms. Mary Jane would be the reason."

    "Regardless of what one believes about weed, Cierre knew the rules and the consequences. If the rumors are true, this shows a lack of respect for Notre Dame, the coaches, his teammates, and himself. I hope he learns from this because life is long."

    He can pack the rock and catch also, reminds me of Tate in size and skills.

    Here is his stats:
    http://espn.go.com/college-football/player/stats/_/id/480250/cierre-wood

    Combine: http://www.uhnd.com/articles/nfl-irish/cierre-wood-solid-theo-riddick-injured-nfl-combine-13177/
    Wood ran a respectable 4.56 40 yard dash which was good enough for 14th best among the 33 running backs that participated in the drill. Wood, however, was one of the top performers in the broad jump (124 inches) and the vertical jump (37.5 inches). Both of those numbers placed Wood 4th among all participants at running back.

    With his performance, Wood likely solidified himself as a mid round selection. Where he could really have helped himself even more was in the interviews, but unfortunately no one outside of Wood and the teams he talked to know if those helped or hurt his stock and the questions teams likely had around his 2-game suspension and why he lost the starting job to Theo Riddick in 2012 after a 1,000 yard season in 2011.

    Interesting article from pro day: He finished with a 4.52 in the 40, second only to receiver Robby Toma's 4.50. And he put up 18 reps on the bench press.

    Keshawn was 5th in punt return yardage and 17th in kickoff return yardage in 2012.

    Kiss of death. He'll be cut soon enough, picked up by another AFC team, and make the ProBowl or Super Bowl.
