    It’s only been one game for Fort. Let’s see what he does over at least a few games before we make him to be the next James Farrier.

    Farrior was the QB of those great defenses back in the day. He doesn't get enough credit.

    Would like to see Tuitt make some plays this season. Surprised that more naysayers aren't onto his vanishing act given his salary.

    I've seen people mention it. I've mentioned it. Tuitt has been useless. He really looked like he was becoming something late in 2016, but he has done nothing but regress since then.

    Is Eifert injured again?

    Seems like he’s always out.

    Broke his leg/ankle a couple of weeks ago. Out for the season, I think.

    Aha. I missed that somehow. Although I think I’m more surprised when he’s actually on the field...

    he's been doing it longer than one game. the bone head butler won't play the man. same as thomas. vince ain't that good. i've been saying this all along. vince is a backup. butler has tried to force him in as our top LB and he just isn't. vince was ok as a guy off the bench and a spot starter but he is not what they are trying to make him. especially if you have more athletic talent on the sidelines. :cool:

    I’d forgotten about that, too.

    That injury looked BAD. Even the broadcast showed only one replay.

    Get after Dalton, he will turn the ball over once the pass rush is on him.

    Yup. Theismann-esque even, for those of us old enough to remember.

    Two good games. Put together 13 more and I’ll be impressed.
