Why you want to get all personal? Last I checked, I don't get paid millions to catch a football. Which he obviously had a problem with today. Its called expectations. He has made every catch he dropped today and then some but when we need a play, fail.

No it didn't. Go watch it again. He grabbed Colston like he was trying to tackle him. Colston didn't have a grip on the ball good enough.

Guy has a bad game and you're ready to get rid of him?? Thank god YOU don't call the shots on this team. He's only the most consistent WR this team has ever had.

I know people are mad about the game, but saying stuff like that is just plain stupid.
Who said anything about getting rid of him. I said bench. If you are not playing up to par, why are you in there? Let someone else have a try. How much worse could it have been? Roby has been on fire so far this year, yet he doesn't even get the chance at receiver.

Where? Where is he listed as questionable? I looked through the threads on here, didn't see anything. Never heard word one of this until now. If this is true, well then that would explain things.

Re: Marques Colston

Ok, well, they put Morgan in, how'd that work out? If you benched every guy that didn't play well, you'd have Graham & Moore running a 2 man offense.

Ingram did nothing. PT had 2 good plays. Bench the entire oline. Drew threw 2 INTs & took 2 sacks, so you want to put Daniels in??

Colston had a bad game. It happens. You don't go around benching your best because they aren't having a great day.

Crazy stuff happens in football. When it's not one guy's day, the others are supposed to step up. That didn't happen.
Colston always fumbles. He did against the Packers and also the lions in the playoffs last year for sure. and he has had so many fumbles over his career, I have lost count. Colston is not consistent, never has been. He has some talent, but Drew makes him look a lot better than he really is. When we HAVE to have a big play, you can count on Marques to drop it or fumble it.

I can't help it, if you are complaining about the team, but don't know which players are injured or not. It's called an INJURY REPORT, it is required by the league, every team does them, and it comes out officially on the Friday before EVERY game. They have been doing them in the NFL since at least the 1960s. You should check them out sometime, you might learn something.

SMH at this post. You make Colston sound like he's Reggie Bush. Colston always has one of those bad games once a year. He has been one the most consistent Wr's along with Lance Moore. If I remember he has converted the most 3rd downs of any WR in the league. Go back and watch games from last season and see how dude was money.

OK you are right. I am sorry I am so inferior to your vast knowledge of the game and it's workings. You are just mr. wonderful. Must be nice to be you huh? To be able to sit there and not have a care in the world if your home team plays well or not. Must be nice to not care. Not care that since the offseason began we as fans have taken more sh!t from every angle possible than the history of the NFL. Must be nice not to put so much care into your team. The same team that talks about how much they play for the fans. That after every natural disaster they have come out strong for there fans and they will do it again. Must be nice not to care that the thought of your team coming out flat after there name has been dragged through the mud every which way possible but couldn't do what they have been known for doing.

I apoligize that I had my hopes up for a victory. I apologize that I thought the team had a chip on there shoulder and had something to prove. I bought into it. This game was a trend setter. This was a must win to set the tone. All progress that we thought the defense made was non existent.

So again, must be nice to be you. To just sit back and criticize other people for maybe being a little to emotional because you such a cool guy. One day I hope I am as cool as you.

Meh.

One bad game does not a season make.

We started off last year 0-1 also.

No; there was the occasional play like that now and then, but I find it's happening more frequently per game now...

And I'm not beating him down for the loss; it's an observation that is there...
