Open Game Day Thread: Texans v. Ravens, Second Quarter

New, comments

In this thread, we reflect on the likelihood of Alan Ball, Whitney Mercilus, and Connor Barwin making great plays in rapid succession.

Cannon.

Hey, remember how I've kept telling some of you that Connor Barwin has started slow in terms of sacks in both of his past two healthy seasons? And how I kept saying that you'd see him pick it up as the season unfolded?

The lesson? Either not to ever doubt me or just to assume that a even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then. Probably the latter. Whatever.

ANYWAY...it's the second quarter. You've already seen only the third safety in team history, Matt Schaub overthrown a WR by ten-plus yards, and Alan Ball be not-worthless. At this rate, we're going to see Shaun Cody with an interception by the end of the day. And then the Mayans will have been right about 2012.

Continue the conversation here. J.J. Watt is getting ready to feed, and you don't want to be in the wrong thread when THAT happens.
