Here's a five word diary.
Again, pretty fair and balanced analysis, does give props to our defense...enjoy!
The Colts are now 0-3, and most indications point to Peyton Manning not coming back until December, if he plays at all this season. The dorky guy in me who loves playing Madden Franchise mode when his wife will let him, loves this situation. Without Peyton, the Colts are an easy 3-4 win team if not less. Which creates an interesting situation come draft time with Andrew Luck being the odds on favorite to be the first over all pick. My feeling, is that as long as Peyton is still able to play, and can be effective, he's earned the benefit of the doubt. With that being said, this could be a great year for the Colts to trade down. With the new rookie cap in place, teams won't be nearly as cautious about trading up to the first pick. Plus, Andrew Luck is probably as can't miss as a QB will come. You could get a kings ransom for that pick, and if Peyton is healthy, that's definitely the way I'd go.
You really can't go wrong in this situation for the Colts in the draft, and that's rare in the NFL.
With seven carries for 56 yards, including a 22-yarder and a four-yard touchdown plunge, the 6-2, 215-pound back looked like he would easily slice the Austintown-Fitch defense for 200-plus yards.
But on an off-tackle run late in the first quarter, he was awkwardly tackled, tweaking something in his left hip.
hopefully this is nothing and he will have a great senior season
I know Brian usually comes out with his official grades pretty quickly here however I have to wonder where the production at MLB has been this year. I dont know too much about his stats but it would seem that he has been a little under-whelming thus far.
Everyones attention was placed on Roh's dissapearing act in the first couple games, but he has come to life in the last 2 games. Many posters on this board including myself thought that Demens was primed for a big year after showing some signs near the end of last year and with us returning to a 4-3 Def. Have the opposing offesive schemes just neutralized him or his he just underpreforming??
A friend of mine tried to convince me that the true value of Demens will be seen in the MSU game because of their much more downhill attack, but didnt Eastern run the ball pretty well?
Here is to hoping that like Roh, Demens has a some big games as we start conference play.
Any insights or ideas???
So this is it... my first diary! Thanks to those of you who requested that I get the points necessary to post this :-).
EDIT: Since photobucket was resizing my images, I changed the links over to a new site. This will look a LOT better on your monitor!
When I saw that monuMental wouldn't be posting his amazing weekly wallpapers this season, I took it upon myself to carry the torch until his triumphant return. He has since stated that he'll be creating rivalry wallpapers, so I'll take a break on those weeks. Since I've been hijacking posts to upload my wallpapers, here's a review of the ones I've created so far for those of you who've missed them:
Western Michigan "Denard vs Broncos"
Eastern Michigan "Eagle Dove"
San Diego State "Aztec Art"
...which brings us to this week's wallpaper, Minnesota's "Brown Jug Kool-Aid"
I do sort of wish that my first diary featured a better wallpaper, but I was having a difficult time adding in a background and went with the minimilistic "monuMental's penn state" look. I've noticed a lot of people commenting on the resemblance of our current 4-0 season to those of the last couple of years. Others, however, have commented on the relative down year the B1G is having and how we have a much better chance of steam-rolling through the conference than in recent years. I'm "cautiously optimistic" myself and thought we could all enjoy a big ol' jug of Kool-Aid to celebrate our success so far. Enjoy!
PS: Here's a link to my wallpaper album, if you or I miss a posting on Monday.
