Pittsburgh was playing with Mewelde Moore. Next guy up. Rock has had 100 yard games before. I'm not saying it's not a drop off but it's not the end of the world if CP doesn't play. Get Fred Davis on the field so we'll have another playmaker.

I am with you Tripp, I am still holding out hope for Malcolm Kelly.
I've got a gut feeling that he will do well for us once he gets in.

As for Fred Davis...if Cooley's can't get in the endzone, there is no way Fred Davis can...unless, of course they unveil their 2 receiving TE set that they were bragging on since the draft....HA!, what a bunch of crap to justify the pick over a need.

Ya know, why not spend significant time with Campbell and the rookies to work on timing in practice?
Hell, just bench the first stringers during practice and put them in to force Campbell to get used to throwing to them. Remember it took Campbell a couple years to get used to the idea of throwing to Moss. That was a big question mark in offseason.

Re: Davis, I have no issue whatsoever with them using an early pick to add depth to a position where we have a starter, and absolutely nothing worthwhile behind him. I do have a problem with them going and playing that worthless player, even though Davis is healthy and available.

But how can he learn if he does not make any mistakes?
I think the coaches have done a poor job of having a couple of plays designed to get them into the action. Besides that reverse (which did not work) what other plays have we run were the ball was going to them?

I'm actually off the Kelly bandwagon and hitched a ride with the thomas group.
I like that Thomas is a football player not just a WR. Once he figures out how to adjust to the game, I think he will have a weapon over the middle. I think we need to see him on kickoff returns...


I'm tired of Kelly, He gets banged up more than Paris Hiltons vagina.

Re: Clinton Portis 50/50 for the Dallas game, injury updates

Thomas has been running routes regularly.
There are 3 reasons he hasn't caught any passes.
A. His route running
B. No seperation
C. Campbell doesn't trust him.

And to GTripp's point....B and C are likely due to A....solve that and it fixes the others.

That is why I still hold out hope for Malcolm Kelly, he aint a "red-shirt" Redskin like Devon Thomas....Now that I think of it, thats a good nickname....Redshirt Thomas!
UGH....at least its not Red-skirt!
He'd have to EARN that nickname by actually catching a ball and being a wuss thereafter.

He has beat coverage on several plays and JC missed him wide open down the field. He will get his chance and I think the coaches need to do a better job of getting him involved in the game.

I agree, he cannot throw the ball to himself when he is wide open. Eventually, JC is going to hit him a few times and it is going to be "game on!".

Ya'll can't have it two ways...you can't say the TTB is going to revitalize his career here and then two weeks later say we are doomed if we don't have Portis or Betts.

Where are all the Rock fans who say Rock is a #1 and should be given a chance to run the ball? That he will fill in nicely for Portis and Betts. We have 3 RB on this team and and now a 4th and only Portis is the man? Maybe we should pick up another RB you know ....just in case something happens to Rock.

I just wish we could see a repeat of Thomas' first td pass (without the penalty of course)

My mistake, for some reason I thought you were talking about D. Hall (shoot, maybe I'm drunk). Well Shaun Alexander was brought to spell Portis until Betts got back. I don't think anyone was saying that he was a savior or something like that; nor no one expected Portis to get hurt. He's (Portis) arguably our best player and we can't win when he is shut down or out with an injury (if we can, I'll happily eat my words).

SA was told that he would come to help while Betts was out, and that he might not be with the team at the end of the season. I think some of us were wishfully thinking that SA would see this as a shot to get back in the league and play well...but play well as a back up, not as the starter. Even if Betts was back 100% healthy, you have to be concerned with the Portis injury. Right now, if Portis can't play, we just need a RB that can hold on to the ball and manage the running game.

^ I'm with you 100%. I'm just trying to stir the pot with the Mason haters and the TTB lovers. lol. I'll agree with out Portis it will be more difficult, however I would like to think Zorn would utilize SA in his better roll as a pass catching RB and use Rock or Betts if healthy as the RB. Heck set up both in the back field and make the defense wonder what is coming....pass or run.
