    Yup, just before half..

    But it happen while I was on a CFB forum arguing that ifo ekpre-olomu is the best CB prospect since Revis, while slamming back wobbly pops.

    Was not pleased, not pleased at all..

    Tyms made on nice catch for a long first down, and had a better catch on another deep ball....but it was out of bounds. In other words he didn't do anything tonight to negate any impression he's made previously.

    If tonight told us anything, we really do have an embarrassment of riches at WR.

    Fantastic, good news. I caught one play of Tyms making a nice first down catch in the second half, but didn't see anything else from him. Glad to hear he still looked the part. Hard to believe after last year we'd consider ourselves stocked at WR!

    Butler still look the part?

    I'll assume you have a major cable provider for your internet connection...it's funny how using a fake ip address (one that would be over seas, fit instance, ipn, vpn(?) Is the term, check the "out of market thread") results in a smooth, almost hd stream. Write a letter to your senator and governor demanding true net neutrality, with reclassification of broadband providers as the only answer. Otherwise, expect shitty streams over the internet, or pay through the nose for cable.

    Butler played a lot and even got time opposite Revis with the 1s. He was close in coverage a lot and did give up some catches but contested just about every one. He was still playing after the starters left the field, too.

    Solder did definitely rebound after a poor performance last week.

    Does not look like a rookie out there. Impossible not to be impressed. Most polished rookie QB we've had in many years. Maybe the FCS is a better league than we all thought. Hell, Romo and Flacco came from that league, and they're pretty darned good QBs.

    Who else loved the first Q? Jones lighting it up. Great secondary. Almost no flags as well!

    Worthy seemed to play mostly LDT. I think that the defense had a 4-3 look most of the 2nd half,
    after the starters were pulled.
