Who is the #1 WR this week?? Is Ford going to play a big role?? If so, I think Taylor will need to be matched up on him. I pray we play with a little bit more fire. I also hope Timmons is feeling better to match up with McFadden out of the backfield.

What are yalls thoughts on the game??

Im sure DHB or Murphy will be listed at the #1 WR. Thing is with us our WR core isnt consistant so its more of a wait and see who is ready to play. Ford stepped up last week, DHB the week before, Murphy week before the before ect... Our only constants are DMC and Miller. Miller when healthy has been getting us around 5 catches and 60 yards with a td mixed in and DMC is getting 90+ rushing and 4 catches for around 30 yards with a td somehow. One thing I expect to see from us is alot of wildcat. We used it against KC and it worked every time and maybe if our passing doesnt start off good we will stick to the wild cat

Who is faster in football pads?? Wallace or Ford??

We all know Ford is faster in a track suit with track shoes on. But on the field, who is faster?? What's the best play this yr demonstrating Ford's speed?? Wallace's is the TD on Jason Allen. Let's see.

Mike Wallace is going to make Stan Routt his ***** all game long.

EvilNixon 11-17-2010 12:57 PM

New England got 86 yards out of the Law Firm...We should be able to muster at least 100 out of DMC/Bush/Campbell. Can we protect Campbell ,and can he take advantage of their secondary will be the key to the game IMO.

Way to pull for the team, diehard.

terribletowel39 11-17-2010 01:30 PM

The 86 yards is a bit misleading because of the way the Pats always spread us out. I'm fairly certain we will be gearing up to stop your run, seeing as how McFadden is yalls best player (maybe Miller).

I always love going against running teams. Collisions!!!!

We here try to remain as objective as possible; that's not necessarily falling short of being a 'diehard' - not to say that's what you were tactfully implying, however. Sometimes our homerness does get in the way of that goal.


Mike Wallace will make Stanford Routt his ***** this weekend. I'm not going to blindly ignore the possibility. No need to call out Nixon like that.

EvilNixon 11-17-2010 03:37 PM

If Stan shuts him down, there will be no one on here pimping him more than me.

EvilNixon 11-17-2010 03:41 PM

I'm pretty homerry for the most part. I call Bruce "King Gradkowski" to everyone I talk football with IRL.

and DMC is a top 3 Rb IMO =D


Actually, any player who I pimp from my favorite teams gets the "King" title. King Darrius,Gradkowski,etc.

Is Aso expected to be back this week? And if so, will he be on Mikey Wallz or my boyfriend? I need to know so I know which one to bench.

thenewfeature06 11-17-2010 04:33 PM

I think Aso is a gametime decision but if I had to guess.. he will be out there and he will be guarding different guys most likely.

All the reports are saying theres a good chance he will play. But still a few more days so you never know.

I expect if he does play that he will cover Ward mainly, and and Routt's speed matched with Wallace.

terribletowel39 11-17-2010 06:48 PM

Is Routt a fast guy?? Like really??

I actually am excited about Ward's matchup with Aso. Not that I think Ward will torch him but Ward is a technician and he is pissed he was pulled from the game last week and that it ended his consecutive completions a game streak that was 3rd longest in NFL history.

619 11-17-2010 06:53 PM

Routt is just about as fast as anybody on the team, and he's 6'1''.

terribletowel39 11-17-2010 07:15 PM

Excellent. It isn't often someone has even remotely close speed to Wallace. Ben better hit him in stride because Wallace almost ALWAYS has to slow down to catch the ball. Frustrating. And that will mean Routt will have a chance to catch up.

Its tough because you always want to play, especially in the big games, and this is a big game for us, Gradkowski said Thursday. Were playing a good football team and you want to be a part of that. But it fell at the wrong time. But the thing I think about is it will be even sweeter and were playing for the AFC championship and Im starting going into that. Ill be prepared to play.

I know theres going to be a point again where I play this year, so thats what Ill be ready for, Gradkowski said.
Not the politically correct approach taken there by Bruce. But I guess that's the kind of mentality that makes him effective, at the same time. He still should've responded differently.

RaiderNation 11-21-2010 12:43 PM

Game day! Little bit hungover but I will stay awake lol

RaiderNation 11-21-2010 01:00 PM

Nnamdi is out :(

LookItsAlDavis 11-21-2010 01:51 PM

Campbell has to find a way to read these blitzes quicker, and get rid of the ball. I'm starting to get really pissed off watching him play.

SwagU 11-21-2010 02:27 PM

Wow now to lose Seymour for the game. Atleast it was a nice pop to Ben's jaw.

619 11-21-2010 02:40 PM

We need Bruceeeeeee!

SwagU 11-21-2010 02:44 PM

Especially against this Steelers D Campbell's big loopy release is killing us. I think it's time for Bruce to come in and put on another miracle win.
