The combination of Sarah's birthday being on Monday and all the celebrations being this weekend, I had to resort to video. I will be watching the game, but possibly with my son in tow. Tweets may be limited. Enjoy, however.
Laura McKeeman is a former Miss Florida. BTW, Whit, the last train to Jacksonville, not Clarksville. This was what I had in mind
Laura McKeeman not just another pretty face. Nice job interviewing "all business" Mike McCoy.
My concern with next week, and not just because I will be in the stands, is that the Skins beat us and not us losing. That's a nice change from the Norv days. Griffin can certainly give us trouble if Locker and Pryor did. I know McCoy knows the formula which we've been calling for so long--balance and smart throws. But if the Skins can get pressure or stop the run, the formula won't work. As for the bye week, I won't worry too much about other teams. If the Bolts can get to 10 wins on their own, unlike the past 3 years, everything else will fall into place.
Guess this is the week to look at stats and possibilities. Denver heading back home after coming off a tough road loss to the Colts will be ready to drop a big number on the skins this week. The skins D have given up an average of 31 points over the past six games. This leads me to believe that even though I would love to see an upset of Denver bringing them even one game closer to us, that there is no chance in hell that it is going to happen.
However, here is the good news. We get to see for the first time how a Mike McCoy team performs after having an extra week to prepare for a team that struggles on the defensive side of the ball. Shady McCoy gashed them for 184 yards. Starks for GB dropped another 132 on them. Stafford went up top for 385. And their last game against Chicago at home Forte scored 3 TDs and McCown threw for 204 and touchdown. Hell Manning could score 50 on them by halftime.
As far as next week goes I know in the past that as far as our Chargers go we would always play down to the competition because Turner was always good at one thing, playing down to the level of the competition. Fortunately I believe those days are behind us so enjoy the week off and who knows maybe the Chiefs luck will run out. I know Joe Banner would love nothing better than being the team to stop his old friend Andy Reids hot streak. Then we can go into Washington a week later and take care of our business.
Bye this week. Lovefest at UT for all things Chargers. I have to say I'm worried about Dunlap being healthy the rest of the year. TT better be scouring the waiver wire for big bodies.
Washington assholes coming up. I'll just say this once.... anyone who thinks redskins is not a fucking slander against an entire race of people is the biggest shithole and deserves to ..... own an nfl team I guess. That's America these days.
Nice to see the Youtube videos Ross. You covered a lot of ground. The bobblehead was a nice touch with Halloween around the corner.
Nice win today. It's one they should have had. It shouldn't have been too difficult. And it wasn't. It's just stupid how many injuries the o-line has. How long can Dunlap play? He might be done for the year before too long. Fluker at LT? hmmm
RM could rush for 1500 more yards this year and I will not be convinced. He will break your faith in him again soon enough. Same with Fast Eddie Royal. As Boltrunner says, kudos to McCoy for what he's done with this offense. I love his philosophy of fitting the system to the players talents. Which was the complete opposite of Norver.
And I saw a comment on a SDUT story about how it must have been McCoy lighting a fire under Pagano's ass to get more creative with the pressure. That's probably true. Well deserved bye, Bolts.
And I'll meet you at the station. Well Ross, we won, and very convincingly. Nice way to go into the bye. Before I forget thanks for the casts. Love the personal touch and it's comforting knowing that the bobble head is holding down the fort. Strike up the band, Mathews actually looks like he wants it all of the sudden. Maybe he's tired of Woodhead making him look like a pussy.
I must admit that I am impressed with McCoys or the Whisers however you look at it, playcalling. Not predictable as Turners plays always were. I am however concerned with all the concussion injuries. As I said before, Telesco is earning his pay check this year. He keeps rolling in players that are at least seen to be able to pick up the playbook.
On a side note those damn Chiefs keep living the shitty life and somehow keep pulling out wins. I would love to see our guys healthy and ready to kick their ass when the time comes. Well I'm gonna sign off and go see if the Colts can somehow ruin the Manning love fest. Keep the faith. Oh ya, and I agree Allen is kicking ass. Another good choice by Tommy T.
Ross, you are "The Dead HEAD". Although a great tune it never occurred to me that this was what you were referring to. On a darker note Lou just took his last train. Thought this was fitting considering the train references.
