    I get the idea that Houston shouldn't be 0 an 3, based on their numbers being better than their oppositions'.

    But I don't see why the fact that they are poorly coached is suddenly going to change in Indianapolis, where they are 2 and 14 against the spread in their last 16 appearances.

    Yes, Luck's arm seems to be very limited. OTOH, Indy's defense looks a lot better than expected, thanks to the impact of 2nd round pick/potential rookie of the year Darius Leonard.

          He shoulda retired at half time.

            Lol. Getting paid $5 mil and gets his feelings hurt.

            Go run into more light poles.

                  Jax. Bears are close, so are the Iggles. JMO.

                  Why, who you think is close?

                    Outside of Jax, I wasn't sure. The Bears are pretty good. Philly's doesn't seem as strong as last year. Just seems like there are a lot of shoot outs lately, unless the AFC South is involved. It's like the NFL finally got what it thought the fans wanted. But it's really not as interesting. And those casual fans are following even more casually, via redzone, quickly checking their fantasy scores, etc.

                      It's usually a pretty boring game. Like the arena league and Canadian football. Some of the best drawing games of the last decade have been those 49er-Seahawks and Steelers-Ravens games. People go in expecting physical defense and running, hit some play action passes. Watching 7 on 7 drills sucks.

                      • Ours is coming along nicely.

                        Just need an all pro CB to replace Norman (he's getting older but not faster) and an all pro ILB and Bob's your uncle. Easy peasy.

                          How's the OLB opposite Kerrigan?

                          Is it still Preston Smith?

                            Yes, it's his contract year, too. But he's been quiet. His backup, Ryan Anderson, has a sack and also occasionally plays fullback for Peterson. Smith needs to make noise or he may be allowed to walk.

                              I like him. How has he been so far? I mean the past couple of years?

                                Inconsistent. His season numbers aren't bad, but they've come in bunches against some bad team or another and then he disappears.
