    Was about to log off and shut down and saw the Roy Williams slant route TD on ESPN...

    Eugen looked like he pulled up lame on that play...Either that or he wasn't trying...He was right there to make a tackle but instead he looked like a 90 something year old fence post.

    Dude has not been around the ball much at all. And then when he is there he pulls up lame...Looked like a hammy...

    Time to get some young fresh legs in there...It's not like we'd be at risk of giving up 400+ yards passing and multiple TDs through the air or anything...

    I will start the Chant.."Start Troy Now...Start Troy Now"...

    After that play, McCain proceeded to give him the business, Wilson didn't even turn around, he just walked to the bench, & never talked to anyone. He also didn't enter the game again.

    The thing though is that according to Kubiak and Pollard, Dominique Barber is ahead of Troy Nolan and is the next guy off the bench if Eugene Wilson sits down.

    Well that's just too bad. That really sucks because Barber will maybe be worse than Wilson has been. I really didn't even think that was possible until you just made me remember Barber.

    Well, hopefully they make that move because the way I see it is that the sooner Barber gets on the field the sooner Nolan gets on the field.

    LMAO! McCain was giving him the business?!?!?!

    Wilson had to have just given up then.

    I was giving him the benefit of the doubt thinking he had a hammy tighten up on him, but damn...if he gave up on that play when he could have made that tackle....that is the kind of stuff that makes me want you off my team.

    We'll never know what the play call was, but if you watch the start of that play Wilson breaks toward the line of scrimmage as if to cover any backs coming out of the backfield. Two Dallas players were flaring out to the flats, then suddenly stopped to block. when Wilson saw the backs blocking, he immediately went to help McCain with Williams because there was nobody else on that side of the field. By that time it was too late. Williams was already too far behind Wilson for him to catch up and help. But like I said, we'll never know what the call was and if Wilson blew a coverage or not.

    The play starts at 1:45. Wilson's movements go hand in hand with the Dallas backfield.

    Kubes said on his 610 show today there was not supposed to be any help over the top - not sure if this play or the one where KJax fell.

    I'll have to re-watch that one too. I really wasn't trying to defend Wilson, just pointing out an observation there.

    On Kubiak's show on 610 today, Kubiak talked about giving Nolan and Barber more reps this week if Wilson is hurt. He said Nolan and Barber are about the same in his mind, but he'll decide who will play based on practice. He didn't really elaborate whether Wilson would start or if Nolan/Barber would see more play time.

    I'm talking about the play where jackson slips.

    I don't know if I missed it or if they didn't show it but during the game I didn't see the angle on that play that I saw on espn.

    Either wilson pulled a hammy, or he quit on the play.

    Given how Nolan shone in preseason and how AWFUL, PUTRID, DISGUSTING our pass defense is right now, I would make the switch right now.

    Well from everything I'm hearing, Wilson is out with a hamstring issue and Barber is the starting FS right now.

    I hope he does well.
