Pretty good game. I like to see a defensive game. Too many shootouts in the NFL now days. The game has changed a lot over the past several years. It's good to see this type of game once in a while. Only thing missing is the weather, some snow or a little rain would be nice to see in a game like this.

Not all do. In fact many don't. Sure, most will make a few adjustments in play-calling or whatnot, but few change the whole system. Pete Carroll is one, that is the whole point of my argument.

For the rest of your post, I definitely agree.


Well, that's the difference between successful teams and unsuccessful teams. You should play to the skills of your most important player.

That's a big first down for the Texans. Good throw by Schaub.

Congrats to the Texans and Bengals for making me fall asleep for the first time while watching television. That game was horrendous. Patriot fans must be stoaked, such an easy matchup next week for them.

Joe Webb is terrible. I do not care if it is your first game in NFL in the season. To throw the ball that poorly is pathetic. He makes Tebow look like fu**ing Manning. They should switch to the #3 qb now

Webb was bad. There's been far worse performances by far better QB's, but damn he looked lost out there.

Well, Mike and Kyle Shanahan had to change their system of offense for RG3. Neither has ever worked with a QB like him. I don't think they regret drafting him :P.

Well obviously they knew what they were getting in for when they traded up to get him.

My point was more for Wilson, many teams were likely unwilling to switch their systems for a knew/different style QB.

Mike Shanahan may have never had a QB like RGIII before, but in high school he played QB in a Wishbone offence, which was kinda like the Spread option of the 70's. It was innovative, new, and used lots of read option plays.

Here's a brilliantly fantastic article on the Skins offence. Great lead-up for the game tomorrow, I suggest everyone give it a read.

Can't say I've read a ton, but Chris Brown is by far the best football writer/blogger I've seen.

Really hoping Colts somehow pull another horeshoe out of there a** and win. They are by far the easiest match up my Broncos and I want to see the most overrated qb (Andrew Luck) get destroyed.

Well that plays into my point that teams that don't adjust their systems to suit their QBs may not have the success they could have.

Even though it was on way way short notice, I don't know why the Vikings practically abandoned the read option with Webb tonight.

Kaepernick was my other example of a coach adjusting to a QB's skill set and finding success. Good coaches do it.

2 great games today. Really want to see Ray Lewis and the Ravens win. Even though RG3 is now one of my fav players I'll be cheering hard for the Sea Hawks. Been waiting for a long time to see a young Sea Hawks team with a very bright future.

Going to be a great Sunday. NFL play offs and NHL is back.

Not really NFL, but sorta NFL news.

Last night Team BC's U19 football team beat team USA 38-18 in the international all stars game.

Pretty cool considering America is the football continent and BC is a province.

BC also beat Europe pretty bad a few days ago.

Looks like some NFL players will be coming out from BC.

Luck vs Peyton would be sweet. The O-Line would have to bring their A game vs the Colts. Nothing motivates a pass rush more than seeing their old QB without a red jersey.

Team Canada beat the US for the gold last year at the U19 champ in Texas too. I don't think the states bring the true best of the best, but even still its cool.

A kid that I coached and played for my high school is their starting QB. Great kid, tall, can run, and has a rocket for an arm.

But it's not quite as impressive as it sounds. Team BC puts together an all-star of all the best High School players in the province. The American team isn't quite the same, it's made up of "the best players not in the US Army All-American Bowl" to quote the announcer on the game feed. He also mentioned that "many of these players have college offers" so it's not like it's all D1 full-ride players.

Having said that, still a VERY impressive feat. One name you all should listen for in the NCAA in a few years is Marcus Davis. He is by far the stud of this team, and guess what... he's only in grade 11. Plays for Mt. Douglas. Dominated triple A as a junior. Can't wait to see what he'll do as a senior.

The running back talent outside of Davis is still incredible. Mark Lego, Mason Swift, Mahara from Van College (first name escapes me) and Maleek Irons who broke Reg Bradshaw's single season rushing record.

I don't now about "some NFL players", that's still a long way to go. Definitely some D1 talent and future CFL players though.
