    Where is the payback for Farves crackback block.

    Even the announcers mentioned it.

    Softies all.

    Gary Kubiak teaches his "kids" not to play that way..... :butterfly:

    Seriously though, I was hoping there would be some kind of pay back.

    Same place that the payback for Jared Allen's shot on Schaub last year is. (nowhere to be found)

    When Jared Allen pushed Owen Daniels out of bounds, and Owen tumbled a little bit and Jared was walking away, I wished Owen Daniels had got down on all fours to dive at Jared Allen's legs in a non-contact way....just to poke fun at him.

    That would have drawn HUGE applause and cheering from the crowd.

    Just a fake little dive at his legs, and then a pat on Allen's helmet.

    Yeah, that worked out well. :thinking:

    Replacing him really helped the run defense. :rolleyes:

    The guy played last year (according to reports) with a sports hernia that went undetected by our crackercrack medical staff.

    Duane Brown was our only enforcer last night.

    Duane Brown might be that guy. He took a huge shot at Jared Allen on that play where one of the Vikings kicked Chester Pitts while he was down. It wasn't even Allen who did it, but Brown went after him anyway. Gotta love that.

    I guess nobody saw Demeco attempt to break the dude favre threw to on the very next play.

    EDIT: seriously, Ryans was pimp slapping Vikes players around last night.

    I wonder if Kubiak says some of the things he says with a wink and a nod cause Gibbs system is famous for being dirty . In other words he won't give them permission , he's waiting for someone to take charge .

    To be fair, we did take out Allen's shoulder later in the game last year. Allen whined about that in his pseudo-apology to Schaub.

    As for the other post about TJ's supposedly-undetected sports hernia injury--did I miss something? Johnson had a groin issue last offseason that roughly coincided with his honeymoon. It limited him in the 2008 OTA's/camp but was (because of the timing) the subject of much humor around the net.

    As for the thread topic, I'd love to have a monster hitter at safety that strikes fear into the hearts of opposing receivers. Barber seems to have the ability to be that guy, but I think he needs to shore up other parts of his game to be that player. That said, Ryans and McCain laid some nice licks out there yesterday.

    I think you're onto something.

    The NFL isn't like the NHL used to be when every team had a Bob Probert or Marty McSorley.

    The real enforcers are the coaches. When you see a guy take a shot at another guy's knees, chances are that a coach instructed him to do it.

    By the same token, when you see guys not retaliate, then that's coached as well.

    Kubiak's Kids play nice football. Enforcers are for mean teams.

    The defense definitely seemed to ratchet up the intensity a bit after the illegal block on Wilson. That made me happy. And as for enforcer status, Duane Brown just jumped up my list of favorite Texans for his retaliation against Ray Edwards. That was a bush league move by Edwards and ought to be fined by the league, and Brown jumped right in there to stick up for Chester. That penalty was 100% worth it.

    We have one. We just need to get him a job on both sides of the ball.

    Not sure if this is worth starting a new thread for. But was anyone else impressed as i was w/ Bryce McCain?

    I figured Quinn was gonna be the sleeper DB. But I loved the way brice played.

    Also. Deljuan Robinson is PRETTY good.

    Seriously just get Vonta Leach a beer bottle. Jk. Duane Brown showed that he is the enforcer of the offense, loved his mean streak last night. DeMeco Ryans is the enforcer of the defense, flat out laying the wood.
