    Hill may be a better QB, but I'm not so sure if his ability to get the ball down the field is that much better than Clemons.

    Yeah - kinda figured. Just bustin yer balls a bit.

    I beg to differ. Maybe my memory is failing me but Shaun Hill has always had a pretty nice deep ball. I like KC as he's a fellow Oregon boy but Hill is a definite upgrade.

    Still no Bruce or Holt on the roster.
    That's OK though. The youngsters will have more experience going into this season than they did last year.

    I think we have enough talent there to win some games. 10 is a real possibility.

    Hope you are right. But, the Shaun Hill I recall was more cerebral via getting the ball out quick and going to the right guy on shorter routes vs. being a good down the field passer. Very questionable arm strength at that.

Thing keeps going into "fail safe mode" when it gets hot ...so gonna try the old .. .go for awhile and stop for awhile thing. Just don't have the $$$ to get it fixed and we need to get back home. Keeping my fingers crossed I don't over do it :(

    I agree. The best way to learn is to be thrown out there and learn under fire. Make your mistakes and learn from them and grow. Sitting and watching for too long will only stunt any player's growth. To me his biggest thing is to know his playbook and try and get the game to slow down for him on game day. Know your reads and just relax...go out and play ball. Let your athleticism take over from there.

    And I would say there is more "talent" at the position on this team than ANY of those 10-6/13-3 teams. Two things have stymied this team and held it back ... 1) youth (still learning the NFL game) and 2) Injuries. The younger guys are going to have another yr under their belt, so they should be better prepared and wiser. We NEED to have a little luck on the injury front. Man ... .the OL and WR positions have been hit for what seems like 5-6 straight yrs ... and then the SB injury..... we NEED some better LUCK there.

    how did that turn out for ya? I'm just hoping I can limp it back. It resets itself if I stop for a bit ... then after about another 45 min's of driving, it does it again...

    Mine was a little different. Turbo was clogged and I had to go a little ways and park then do that again about five times. Not a BMW but a Passat. Had to have the intake and oil pump replaced to the tune of about $1100 (good German motors mechanic otherwise it would have been more). Ended up buying a new car and having the old car towed to the mechanic. It ran fine afterward but we were wanting a new car anyway so....

    Good luck to you. Hope you get home safely.

    On my first date with my wife I took her to Monterrey. On the way down there from San Jose my crappy old station wagon started making this awful sound. The car was hard to control on that scary ride down Highway 17 and then south on Highway 1 but I was stubbornly determined not to have it ruin our first date. I turned the stereo way up to muffle the noise and acted nonchalant. Dumbass....I know.

    Got there safely and as luck would have it we ran into(not literally) two of her girlfriends who drove her home. I made it back and the next day took the car to a shop. The mechanic put it up on a lift and one of the rear wheels immediately fell off. I told him what had happened and he called me a liar. Said there's no way anyone could have driven that far in the condition that wagon was in.

    Well it drives just fine until it goes into the FSM ... .so I'm hoping that it will get us home. I live too far away to leave it here and no other way to get back... plus ... don't have the cash to get it fixed right at the moment so.... if I can just make it home, then I can have my Indy guy look at it and then decide my next action. just sucks having to worry so much. Have about 200 mi's to go to get home.....
