    This is going to lead to some BS ejections.

    So, I'd say Dflo will be ejected by the half.

    DFlo is screwed. Stupid helmet to helmet hits are part of his game.

    I agree, this has the potential to result in a game changing bad call.

    Those zone-blocking cut blocks need ejections too.

    Funny how we never got a replay of the Castillo injury. Cameras in each end zone, and nothing had an angle? Sure ....

    This has been seriously on my mind as well. I thought I saw something seriously nasty, but there was not replay to catch what happened to him. It went under the rug.

    I'd like to see a replay of how castillo got hurt as well. Anyone know who down loaded the game.

    Don't forget horrible coverage, bad sportsmanship, horrible tackling skills, fumble-itis, etc...

    If he gets bounced once or twice, his value on the open market will take a decided drop. I want to see more of Cro, Weddle and toward the end even Oliver. The guy's an athlete without much football sense. Playing DB or WR is like being a pilot. Time, distance and motion better be second nature or you'll clank. It's either in your head or it isn't. You can learn the sense of it, but the perceptual ability has to be there in the first place. It all comes down to pattern recognition. Same with QB's. The speed of the NFL separates the sheep from the goats. Going from Pop Warner or flag football to the NFL is one long Simple Simon game. Pattern recognition. DFlo has found his level of competence and it ain't with the Pros.

    Harrison, played much the same as D-flo does but he is idolized in these very forums. I don't get it, either you want someone to knock them out of their jocks or you don't.

    Until our team is feared on both sides of the ball expect more of the same. The only image we are portraying right now,
    is that we're "pretenders" that's not acceptable with me.

    Even as hated as the Pats are they have an image. They will beat you down and take some borderline cheap shots on you, and they wont let up on offense. I wish it was us that was playing with the same spirit as them.:bolt:

    I never want to be compared to the Pats, unless it's saying that we have more SB wins.

    We'll never be compared to the Pats. I just wish we played with the same fire.:bolt:

    There has to be something else to his flag problems while he was here. I've been watching this team for decades and there aren't any stats to back this up, but we have been victimized by zebras for more bogus calls than anyone else in the league. I watched Rodney when he went to NE. Guess what. He's not drawing the same kind of penalties there as he did here. The one major impression I got when Harrison was here was how utterly bogus the majority of the flags were. He knocked guys wienies in the dirt, but I seldom saw anything resembling a cheap shot or the helmet to helmet hit. Not only that, the penalties seemed to come at the most inopportune of times.
