Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Gabbert went down in the first half against the Texans and Henne came in is playing really well.
10/13, 225 yrds , 2TD, no interceptions
Also, the Lions currently have the lead. They might win their first division game this week if we're lucky.
Now that the game is over and Fitz is in everyone's thoughts and prayers, please also say a word or two to the man upstairs for Da Coach. Mike Ditka suffered a small stroke yesterday. He appears to be doing okay, but at his age this could be a precursor for worse things.
I hope both Fitz & Ditka have swift and thorough recoveries.
Coach Chaka Daley picked up his first NCAA Tournament win at Michigan tonight. Michigan beat the niagara purple eagles 3-1 at home tonight to move to 11-9-1 on the season. Michigan is now 8-4 all-time in the NCAA Tournament with a perfect 5-0 record in the first round.
Michigan will face a familiar foe next. They will travel to akron and play the 5-seed zips on Sunday at 4:30pm.
The two teams have played 4 times in 3 years. akron ended Michigan's magic run in the NCAA Tournament in 2010 en route to a national championship. Michigan got revenge however last year in a 1-0 2OT thriller despite having a down year.
The two teams met in the regular season with akron winning 1-0 at home. Michigan's record against akron all-time is 4-8-0.
Former Wolverine QB and current 49er's HC is at the hospital today in California for an irregular heartbeat aka an arrythmia, he is having a procedure done. No word yet on any impact to his coaching for the rest of the season, or Monday night vs the Bears. Thoughts and prayers go out to him for a swift recovery. Regardless of the past few years' bitterness, he's still a UM QB so he still gets my support in this.

I cannot begin to express how much the universe tried to keep me from publishing this thing. All sorts of life obstacles kept pushing this to the side burner all week, and apologize for pushing back the reveal so late. The stories are not worth telling, but rest assured I will do my best to not get derailed next week.
On Thursday we salute a legend.

USA vs Russia in Krasnodar
Very happy to see Josh Gatt get his first cap, though through 6 minutes he looks overwhelmed by first-team play. Mix Diskerud could also come off the bench, which I would love to see.
In other news, Timmy Chandler suits up again for the US... surprise surprise, it's another non-cap-tying game. but on the plus side, Klinsman is playing him in his natural position!
