Hornless

Listed as questionable with a hamstring injury for Sunday's Texas home opener against the Bills, we're told that the feeling in the locker room is that Saints Pro Bowl receiver Joe Horn won't play.

Horn had one catch for 11 yards last weekend against the Vikings, during which he suffered the injury.

His absence means that Bills cornerback Nate Clements most likely will match up against receiver Donte' Stallworth, who steps into the go-to position with Horn out of the picture.

i'm kinda anxious to see what donte and devery together can do fulltime. let them fly down each sideline. or, let them rotate against one corner... fly route, then sit down a play for a breather, other one goes in and flys for a play, and continue. do that for a full drive, you would figure a 25yd+ play would be made at least once.

RE: Hornless

Horn will play, he has too, I would hate to rely on all those other guys to catch a ball right now. I really think the Haz will have to start benching some people to shake things up now and to possibly save his job, because another 8-8 will seal his fate and free up a whole lot of his future.

RE: Hornless

I don't know because I can't see the games but isn't Henderson doing good? I saw were his YPC was around 20 something. I really don't see Horn sitting out, unless he is REALLY hurt. He is one of few guys who cares if we win or lose.

RE: Hornless

okay tough old joe plays. but THIS is scary...

bellamy out, smith moved over, bulocks in- i can handle that. see what the kid can do. better than our 2nd rounder last year who was hardly active much less play. (and look at him now)

DT Brian Young suffered an injury to his left arch on Sunday against the Vikings and is listed as questionable for the Bills' game- we have so much depth and quality in the middle he won't be missed <insert sarcasm>

RCB Fakhir Brown has a bone bruise on his knee, which has caused him to miss the last two games, and his return is uncertain after missing practice again Wednesday. In his void Jason Craft has proven his value <more sarcasm please>

LCB Mike McKenzie is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a neck problem. craft has looked that bad against the #2 receivers. imagine him against the go-to guys. i hope bullocks can keep up with moulds and evans.

RDE Darren Howard is questionable for the game with the Bills because of an ankle injury that he suffered near the end of Sunday's matchup with the Vikings. he's good but i think this injury bug is why they didn't get a lot of interest in trade talks for him.

SS Dwight Smith has a toe injury, but was able to practice Wednesday. He is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game. i wonder how bad haz is still carrying that mel mitchell in his face grudge from last year still?

the 2004 defense was wretched when healthy. how will a dinged up version be this year? oh well, we still have sedrick hodge starting LOL.

stecker unlikely to play. then RG Jermane Mayberry remains questionable for the game with the Bills because of a right shoulder injury that he suffered in practice last week. He did not participate in team drills Wednesday. and G Montrae Holland is questionable for the game with the Bills because of a knee that has bothered him for the last two weeks. sound like more deuce 3.2 ypc?



they'll probably pull out a win with so many dark clouds.

RE: Hornless

No 25 there won't be any excuses for him this year or Brooks. I don't think the organization can afford someone saying, just wait until next year.

If Horn doesn't play, there will be a ready made Brooks excuse for this game before it even tips off, just add water.
