All right, so alot of fringe players are getting their shots today. We've seen this in the recent past, and players have stepped up. Remember the gloom and doom when we had to start Barlcay at RT? Turns out dude can play football.

More recently, Franklin got his shot. People were talking shit at the end of training camp. IF HE WASN'T DRAFTED HE'D HAVE BEEN CUT. Hahaha, guess what. Dude can play football.

Last week Lattimore came in and got it done.

On the other hand, McMillian seems to have shit himself. Quarless and Taylor don't seem to have done themselves too many favors.

So, who do YOU think is gonna light it up today? Who gets a chance to be a developmental player down the road?

And who do you think is gonna shit themselves?

Here are some guys I think have a shot to distinguish themselves: Bostick (then again, I've been calling for him for weeks.) Stoneburner, Myles White. Is Nixon still on the roster? I'd like to see what he can do. He looked like he could play in the preseason.

I'd also like to see Nate Palmer get some positive action today.

Also, who do you think is gonna shit themselves? Imo it's time for Quarless to go through puberty. Boykin too. Dude needs to get on the same page.

I'm looking forward to Franklin getting touches today. I also want to see how Bostick gets used on offense. How much will they line him up at the end of the line like a TE vs how much he stands up like a WR. I know his blocking stinks but him and Finley could get serious mismatches over the middle of the field.

No mention of my favorite rookie (among the 7ths and UDFAs anyway), Andy Mulumba? I think he and Palmer will more than do the job. Lattimore has done OK, although Brad Jones didn't set too high a standard. I hope Barrington gets a chance and comes through too - maybe to get out the doghouse he apparently is in.

I think one of these weeks, Quarless is gonna show up. He hasn't had much thrown his way, but maybe that means he hasn't gotten open. I'm glad they stuck with him - hopefully he justifies it.

To be fair, Brad Jones was one of the best 3-4 ILBs in the league this season before getting hurt. He was playing solid ball.

hHmmmm..Brad Jones was leading the team in tackles, and assists. With a sack and a forced fumble.

Glad your standards aren't unrealistic.

Texas is definitely not one to let facts get in the way of his opinions.

Brad Jones is the 8th ranked ILB in the NFL. That's setting the bar up there decently. He lacked a little in coverage.

Every team has fans that fans of other teams point to and say "all their fans are assholes" Don't be one of those fans.
