Preist looked impressive today all thigs considered. There were several times he made a couple yards when nothing was there. And if it had been LJ they would of been no gainers or runs for a loss.


Croyle....wtf can you say the kid has an arm and zings that ball into the chest. What's that? No, receievers are NOT supposed to have to sky 10 feet to get a pass contrary to what Huard thinks.


Our coaches still suck but at least Croyle and Priest seem to show we can move the ball some.

it felt that way....but Croyle has some growing pains to suffer through and Priest, while still surprisingly shifty doesn't have the burst he used to....but I thought they both brought a good energy to the game...

Priest looked fine. He will work his butt off and give you everything hes got as always.

But hes not the future. Id rather see Kolby get a few more carries....

I guess with 1st half of Bucball...... Hutard had to prove he couldn't carry the team...

at least he's gone and Croyle's crisp bullets were impressive (again).

Croyle will get better with playing time, and I think the same goes for Priest. Holmes still has it in him for sure, he just needs to shake off some rust. Croyle just came in too late, Huard already lost the game. I think we have a much better chance at winning the west now.

Bowe should have caught that Td pass. That sucked.

Let's face it, the heart of the offense was the offensive line.

Sorry to say but that until that improves, the offensive will continue to be weak and moderately effective(at times) at best. Do i get rep for stating the complete obvious?

Still, it was kinda nice to see Priest playing again. Kind of inspiring in a way.

Croyle will help alleviate the ineptitude of the O line, he makes quick reads and gets the ball out in a hurry

Priest is certainly a welcome change over LJ. It was very nice to see some pass blocking by the RB today.

Look - the book is still out on Croyle though. I have high hopes for him, but I'll save my praise for him until he can play a half and produce more than 3 points. Hell, Damon-led offense produced 6.

Damon played 8 1/2 games this season.. Croyle has played a total of one half...

I will give Croyle the benefit of the doubt...

Will give him at the minimum of next season before I question or doubt.

Larry Johnson is not the problem. Priest, you have to love the guy, and he's better suited to playing behind the crapass offensive line, but Larry Johnson is not the issue.

I wish from the start of the season, we could have seen Croyle under center. With the emergence of Bowe, those two could be developing some chemistry by now, maybe the whole season plays out differently.

I don't think we'd be much better, but at least this would have been a season of hope. One where we lose and think "Well, we've got some work to do, but watching these young guys grow up is fun."

Instead we've been treated to Carl's sock-puppet show of 'win now' and ended up back where we started.

Priest was great but he's not the future of the franchise. Why play him? LJ is the 19 million dollar man who isn't going anywhere. Smith is the future #2 and should be getting the carries and not Priest.

Now if someone would please bench Drummond, to at least light a fire under his butt. He may not be the worst in the league, but there is absolutely no spark whatsoever.

not really after the dj interception and runback they were already in fg range

I believe they went 3 and out and kicked a fg

Furthermore, croyle has an arm- at the half huard was lucky he didn't have 3 picks, twice denver dropped two very catchable interceptions

If you saw the pick croyle threw it was a beautiful pass and going to a spot. Probably not where he should have threw it but he's learning.

Huard would have never had the balls to throw it downfield.

I got to admit I became excited when croyle came in, you could sense the "spark" no it didn't result in points but could have.

every time croyle's offense had the ball they drove it down the field.

You expect too much from a guy who has yet to start a game in the NFL..That's just stupid. :rolleyes: :shake: Actually let me tone that down a bit. Damon has had 8 games, he sucks....Just sayin give Croyle some time.

The thing I noticed (only could listen, haven't even seen highlights yet) is that after Croyle came in, the ball started getting distributed to more people. Huard had only had completions to Bowe and TG. Within in the first drive, 3 more people had catches.

The change needed to be made after we saw how bad Huard was in the Houston game. Croyle looked good in Da Bears game and the Jags game. What bugs me the most is that Herm even has to think about who should start next week. What? Why? Is he waiting for the light bulb to shine over his head? He didn't make the decision to switch QBs untill Huard got cream puffed and nocked out of the game. This doesn't give me very much reasurance that Herm knows what he is doing for the best of the football team.


He didn't switch QBs after the Jags game, and now we have to wait untill tuesday for him to comferm who is going to start next week. WHY? If he couldn't see the difference himself he is a total idiot.
