    Its possible because he's freakin MEGATRON but not likely unless we can start drawing in the safeties which also keeps the corners on their heels, by getting Leshoure going and hitting our TE's across the middle, so yeah unlikely

    i still feel stafford is more hurt than we think. remember when he broke his non throwing hand or finger or whatever last year.. threw more picks in 3 games then the rest of the season. i believe hes being limited by an injury cause the way he handles his injuries in the past, and this seems to be just like that incident.


    that aside, if he can come back and play like the real stafford, this is possible. No cb can stop calvin by himself. as soon as we figure our offense out again, he has a great chance at this feat. why? because he has been under used in the first half all season and his worst game came out to 94 yards on the stat sheet. as soon as this combo heats up, we will see numbers like the end of last year on offense. just gotta wait for stafford to get back on his game, and linehan to start changing it up a little.


    I do agree our offense is predictable, as well as our defense. watching other teams is so fun now cause you see so much **** we neevvver do and its like oh man, why cant we do stuff like that???? we run the most basic crap ever. its obvious we only run the bubble screen to burleson. its obvious we like to do an end around at least twice a game. its obvious we wanna run the ball between the tackles. i mean game planning for us must be so easy. ok were gonna double calvin and single cover everyone else, lbs watch for the run on 1st and 2nd down. on 3rd give em a 4 yard cushion cause they will take it every time and we will stop them 3 and out on a 3rd and 7, 4 yard pass.

    Scary thing is, it feels like he hasn't had a dominant game from start to finish yet. He really came alive at the end of the Titans game though.

    yeah he seems to have a big play here and there and thats about it. Its feels odd to see him having that good of a season but have seem to be not that good of a season.

    I would love to see it happen. Really want to see more of those deep balls when he gets behind the S, though. (I know the safeties are playing him really deep this year, but still...). Air it out to him a few times a game.

    It was nice to see us get a running game going and having a few play actions against the Titans. One of these times the S will bite enough to air it out.

    But hopefully we see a 200 yard game this week with a couple TDs

    Im sure calvin would prefer to hoist the george halas and vince lombardi over some record no body cares about any way. Dan marino and dan fouts great passers no ring.

    Calvin now has 1,257 yards on the season. The record for most in a season is 1,848 by Jerry Rice.

    Think he gets it?

    I think so. Anyone know what he's on pace for?

    The crazy thing is if you think about all the drops... Give him credit for at least 1/2 of them...

    Over the last four games he is averaging 158 yards per game. If he continues on that pace for the final five games he will have 2030 yards. I think he can easily break Jerry Rice. I also think there is a small chance he cracks 2000 but its very small. Its really all we have to look forward to now. :/

    Bears game is going to be big for him. If he gets ~100 yards against the Bears he'll prob break Rice's, but i don't know. Maybe Tillman will let him have it last game, or hopefully they rest him lol
