I have got to think that Calvin has practiced, even on a limited basis, he will play.

Glazer said he is active but may only be used on 3rd downs and in the red zone. It has also been reported he has taken off the brace, so he may be even healthier than they are letting on.

The less targets Durham has the higher the chances of us winning are. I want to see what Fauria can do with an increased workload, and would like to see Broyles have a game like he did on thanksgiving

I didn't realize Calvin had so much impact on our defense too.

When your offense could be accurately described as "The Durham Show," you know you're in trouble.

well apparently a 3rd down scramble by a QB can be a spark. Reiff and a pulling Warford, Pettigrew laid some nice blocks for Bush who actually followed the play and went for a big gain. Kris Durham show continued for a lil bit without drops and then Bush got an escort from Raiola, Warford and Broyles into the end zone?

The drive that wakes up the offense?

Not to be negative, but getting sick of the drops. Two by Ogletree, one by Bush, one by Durham..

Looked like a different team on the field in the 2nd half. Nice to get another road win.

Apparently he can score more TDs than he has planned dances for :lol:

Incredible, wasn't it? It all changed from that play onward. Crazy. Do they really need that to get them going? At least it worked, though.

It felt like there was a new head coach with how well they adjusted from the first to second half. Perhaps Schwartz is finally grasping what it means to be a head coach.

I think Gunny should loan out Levy to the offense so he can show them how to high point a ball and catch with your hands.

Great win!

Im wondering, is Fauria only a threat when they get in the red zone? Dont see him or hear of him much any other time. I understand he's a rookie, but kinda makes me wonder why he doesnt get more snaps.

I think it has a lot to do with him being a below average blocker and not athletic enough to play out wide like Scheffler did. He's great in the red zone where it's more about his size and jumping ability instead of his speed and route running.

This is one of the first time's I've seen them adjust after halftime into something that was actually effective. I'd like to see Fauria used more outside the red zone but maybe he's not ready for that yet.
