Ha Ha Duce to Miami would be really great, especially if we do it before the game.

Have you heard anything about it??
Looks like some information here but not too much detail on his injury.

With them adding Cobbs... i just dont see it. Myabe this team is not as high on KUHN as I am. I cant see them keeping Staley and cutting him and taking a player such as COBBS and cutting KUHN.. i have to think this would mean Staley is gone. Just has to be

No one thinks they have a better idea, but this is the most interesting development since Ben's face.

Some college info on Cobbs.............

His sophomore year at N. Texas, he has 1,680 yards rushing and 19 TD's...It seems that he didn't play his junior year...and his Sr year, he rounded out at 1,154 yards and 6 TD's...Most interesting stat...He didn't fumble 1 time in his college career (566 carries)...Last, but not least, he averaged 5.1 yds per carry in his college career...

Why you should care about Patrick Cobbs: He's the best player on the best team in the Sun Belt conference. The Mean Green has so much Sun Belt talent that there's no reason Cobbs can't lead the nation in rushing again and be the Sun Belt Player of the Year. For all runners looking to win the rushing crown, they'll have to watch the box scores for Cobbs as he'll set the bar extremely high.

Positives about Cobbs: He's a good-sized back with decent power and tremendous speed and quickness. When he gets a sliver of daylight, he's gone. He's a consistent back rushing for over 106 yards in the last ten games he played in last season. While not used much as a receiver, he can catch.

Negatives about Cobbs: It's one thing to light up Sun Belt teams like a Christmas tree, but it's another to do it against quality BCS-league teams. He hasn't had much of a chance to go up against the big boys, and it's hardly fair to dog him for only rushing for 38 yards against Oklahoma, but there's a school of thought that any number of other good backs might put up the same numbers running behind the good North Texas line against Sun Belt teams.

A cool thing about Cobbs that you probably didn't know ... Cobbs wasn't just an All-State running back in high school, he was also a star defensive back rated as one of the best recruits to come out of Oklahoma. If you added up his career marks, he has rushed for 7,592 yards and scored 80 touchdowns over his last five years of playing football.

He's a throw away. Not even as good as Humes.

I'm thrilled we're getting rid of a proven NFL running back in favor of an unproven nobody from a horrible D-IAA program. That's certainly a reason to celebrate.

If Parkers gets hurt, we're done for the season.
and if Brady goes down..so are the Pats...
and if manning goes down..so are the Colts...
and if Palmer goes down..so are the Bengals...
and if Alexander goes down...so are the Seahawks
and if LT goes down....

Also, remember that one guy that we drafted from that little known university? Ahh yes, none other than Mr. Joe Greene. Also, that Eric Pegram character.
