    From the Times Picayune. Not much, yet. Except Mario & the D-line are kicking arse. :)

    Sometimes he should just take the sack.

    I don't think you're allowed to sack with another team.

    If you are not allowed to sack the QB in the practice I doubt very seriously they are allowing us to practice our cut blocking. Gibbs needs all the time he can get after the Denver showing. Come on Gibbs!

    i really think our preseason games are more important for us that most other teams in the league for this reason. the OL gets basically only 4 true rehearsals before the games count. all of our practices are theoretical in nature where the lineman grabs the Defensman and squares up on him and they agree that he has been "cut blocked" and therefore no longer persue's the play.

    that's pretty scary to think how little time we have to perfect this. it's a good thing we have the perfector running the show.

    Here's another report. Might be a little biased, but nice to see AJ making DB's look afool again.

    My bad...

    I'm speaking cumatively (INT's & Bad Throws)....

    The throw he had the other night was plain awful....I'm sitting in the stands and I couldn't believe he threw that pass...

    Yeah, after I'd already replied I thought you might've meant that throw.

    I agree, it was a bad decision.

    The pick against Denver was Sage wasn't it?

    Yeah, Sage can be just as reckless with the ball (maybe even more) as Schaub can be.

    but to answer your question, the texans didnt have a pick. sage threw a td.

    Polo was talking about the throw that Schaub made at the goal line on 3rd down. You know, the one into triple coverage that bounced out of McCree's hands. That would've been a 100 yard Int return for a TD. :gun:

    Yeah, I remember it. It was a bad decision in a big way. I just had that mortar lob that Ramsey threw to Ferguson on my mind and attributed it to Sage.

    Yeah, Ramsey's just a horrible QB. I'm very happy we ended up going a different direction instead of bringing him in here. It just makes me appreciate the talent SmithGM & Co have at evaluating players even more.

    What? Isn't it better than turning the football over?

    Whoever is under center NEEDS to play within themselves and protect the football at all costs. If that means throwing the ball away instead of forcing it into triple coverage then so be it.
