    Courage? Looks more like desperation to me.

    It's like kicking someone's stupid little poodle when it was their cat that bit you.

    Listen I get it. Point is Bill O’Brian is pulling out all the stops in his make or break season, Cal is enabling him and giving enough rope to hang himself if it doesn’t :choke:

    I'm pretty sure we have accused him as such. Gutless too iirc

    ummm... "A great football coach"...?


    My mind is so much more at ease when I realized/excepted O'Brien isn't and never was an offensive innovator.

    He HAS to have good players because he hasn't shown the ability to scheme folks open.

    If he can form his dream team that can bully their way to wins.... well, that'll work too.

    Laremy Tunsil.
    It's a name straight out of a John Wayne movie.
    Chisum?

    Oline and Tunsil need some work. Is it 6 or 7 sacks and an unknown number of whiffs. Running game is good, but DW4 on pace for 100 sacks this year and not many seem on him for holding the ball. I actually thought pass blocking would be better than run. Will they gel is the question

    I still believe the o-line will get better. At the same time we have a much tougher schedule and the same crappy HC.

    Even with good players he scores about 20 points per game.

    Running game needs a lot of work. Duke & Hyde did very well considering what the line gave them.

    Not too sure about expecting better from the OL. That's the same interior from last season. Tunsil whiffed once... Henderson was better than I expected.

    yeah, that was a bright spot. I like his burst to the hole and the toughness not to be taken down at first contact.

    He's on a one-year, prove it deal.
    Now will our new "GM" let him walk...?

    I’m rewatching game after work with a focus on Tunsil but it feels like he had a pretty terrible game. His run blocking is pretty bad. He gets high, loses power in his hips and is playing on the wrong side of the LOS. His pass blocking on the other hand is as advertised. He did give up 2 sacks - same amount he gave up all last year. Jitters? New system? Hopefully. Texans didn’t trade for a guy that was fully developed and that’s what I saw last night. Still a great amount of talent to work with before y’all go freaking out with the negativity interventions. Best lineman we’ve had since Duane just needs to round out.

    Devlin and OB are now coaching him. That should explain why Tunsil now gave up two sacks. lol

    Or the fact he's been with the team for a week.

    Henderson is an issue.
