    About Lomo. I started to give him credit at the end of the year when he began to play well. He is not made out of glass , and he is a elite back. I was totally wrong and I know it. I admit it , I was totally wrong. I am happy for him. He is getting his due.

    I just got back from the game. Unreal.


    That is all.

    me, too. It's not just that he's running hard, it's that he's reading his blocks better than ever. Great cuts in this game.

    How was the live action?

    I have had season ticks for years. Tonight was awesome. Lomo tore it up. He was a total beast. I was 100 percent wrong about him.


    His speed and burst is something to see live.


    Congrats guys!

    Kudos to you for having the guts to man up and say it unlike some people.

    No I drove my car. I live close to the stadium. I did not stay for the whole celebration. Parking in p10 was a good move today.

    Don't worry his first off game next season and he'll be labeled a bum made of glass again.

    Danny88 - I have to give you credit. You manned up and admitted you were wrong.

    It will be interesting to see if others will do the same.

    The only mistake you made was to draw conclusions that projected into the future. I don't think you were wrong in pointing out that his play was lacking "confidence", as Brady put it. To project that this means something that cannot be fixed is the only problem I saw with your posts.

    But you stood up like a real man and owned it, anyway.

    I don't think Maroney is lacking anything right now. He has the complete game, which is unusual for a young guy. If you want somebody to power it and knock heads, he can do it. If you want that cut back for 20 yards he can do it. He can catch and run. He can return kickoffs. He's a good kid. There is nothing about him that isn't firing right now.

    Earlier I thought that Morris was the starter next year but now I'm not sure of that at all. All I know is that the offense is going to be even better with both of them.

    Wow. "You're not sure" that Morris will be the starter next year. Way to eat crow.

    What a great game by Maroney! He's looking like the back from last year before he got injured. Busting through holes and breaking tackles. Way to save the struggling offense today

    I stand by my opinion that at the time I was calling Maroney "made out of glass" he deserved to be called out.

    That said you where right and I was wrong about Maroney in the long term.

    I admit it , I was totally wrong about him.

    I still think you are a prick sometimes , but it is pretty damn impressive how you called his progression into an elite back so accurately. Kudos to you.
