  1. Eifert gets the Texans defense in his next game on Monday Night Football. The same Texans who gave up 3 TDs to Kelce in week 1.
  2. He won't be doing the praying though. That'll be left up to others. Texans fan here. I greatly appreciated him carrying our offense for years. Kubiak definitely rode him into the ground. But he produced. Big time. Not bad for an undrafted free agent.
  3. Oswalt?Think dead kile?Astros threw a 6-pitcher no-hitter in 2003 @ Yankees. It was Roy Oswalt, Kirk Saarloos, Pete Munro, Brad Lidge, Octavio Dotel and Billy Wagner. Darryl Kile was the last solo pitcher to throw a no-hitter for the Astros. 1994 I think.
  4. I think today is the final day of a special at GameStop: Trade in your 360 (250GB) or PS3 (120+GB) and receive $125 off towards the purchase of an Xbox one. And this can include the kineckt-less version, and these are now bundled with a game like Halo or Assassin's creed. So with a trade in, you can get an xb1 for $225, tax not included.
  5. Just chiming in to say I use Castor & Pollux Organix dog food. Made in USA, organic, lots of real ingredients, no bad filler stuff. Been using it for close to 4 years for my 22 pound mutt. He's healthy and happy, never really gotten tired of it. The adult version (brown bag, red label) is rated 5 stars on, for what it's worth.
  6. Bust. My least favorite Texan by far. Wish we had Bortles, Teddy, Matthews, Robinson, Mack, or Barr...
  7. Signs an extension: On Friday afternoon, Mike Florio reported that the Cardinals and quarterback Carson Palmer could agree to a contract extension soon. Soon didnt take long. The Cardinals announced a bit later on Friday afternoon that they have signed Palmer to a three-year extension through the 2017 season. . Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports the payout is $50 million, although there arent any details about how the deal is structured in terms of guaranteed money and injury protection at this point. Palmer could have become a free agent after the season, which was apparently something the Cardinals didnt want to risk. Palmers season was interrupted by an injured nerve in his right shoulder, but hes played well since being back in the lineup and has posted his best numbers since his early days in Cincinnati. Palmers first year in Arizona got off to a rocky start, but hes thrown 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while the Cardinals have gone 11-2 in his starts since the midpoint of the 2013 season. With Palmer off the market, Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer stands as the most attractive of the potential free agent quarterbacks. His record as a starter over the last two years is almost as good as Palmers, which will make for some interesting decisions in Cleveland if things keep going well for him over the remainder of the season.
  8. AJ is indeed still the #1 option. Fitzpatrick trusts him and will continue to feed him. DeAndre made one guy miss on a short-medium pass and just ran untouched for his big TD in week 1. Other than that he didn't do much. Week 2, incredible throw/catch on the back shoulder on the sidelines for the TD. Fitzy put it where only DeAndre could get it. Here's why I would be holding or even buying on Hopkins: Bill O'Brien is only keeping 4 WRs active. He's made DeVier posey inactive both weeks so far (mildly shocking to us Houston fans). The #3 and #4 WRs are Keyshawn Martin (slot guy with stone hands) and undersized Demarus Johnson, who is still learning the playbook since he was claimed from the eagles after preseason ended. He looks like he can't block or catch cleanly. Add in all 3 TEs looking like they will be more relied on for blocking or the occasional "move the sticks" catch, and this is realistically ALL Andre and DeAndre. That's it. They are the only true pass catching options right now. O'Brien wants to run, run, and run some more. But if there are any passing chances, it'll be the 2 guys above doing the catching. No need to worry about a 3rd guy emerging anytime soon.
  9. Too early to take him In the early 4th of a 0.5 PPR league? I missed tonight's game but he just seems like a mismatch. I have visions of his first game of the season from 2013. Beast game and then he got hurt. Imagine what his stock would be if he played all 16 games...ugh I don't think I'll be able to get him in the late 5th now...
  10. Whoa. Pump the brakes there. The division will be mediocre and the Jags will be improved but there's a long way to go. I dunno man. I'm an outsider, but there's just something reassuring about your new brain trust. I really like Gus Bradley, that defense will be top 10 soon, and maybe elite in the next 2 years. Let that offense cook some more, unleashing a wiser Bortles in 2015 with some extra o-line help and y'all will be right in the mix with the Colts. The colts aren't deeply talented. A quality QB can mask holes on the team (like Rodgers in Green Bay). If Bortles is as advertised, and i think he will be, I would feel confident picking the Jags as a true dark horse for next season.
  11. 2015 AFC South Champs. No doubt. And Jags will be competitive this year. As a Texans fan, I'm sick to my stomach watching Bortles looking great already. He and Luck will beat up the Texans for at least a decade.
  12. Excited to see what this guy can do. I think his stock will continue to rise during these preseason games.
  13. I really think rookie Alfred Blue, picked in the 6th round, will be a fantasy factor at some point this season. Foster having back surgery is nothing to sneeze at. Kubiak really ran him into the ground in 2012. This could be his Larry Johnson-like decline. As a Texans fan I hate to admit that, but his best durable days are behind him. Once the hamstrings go, that's it.
