    Nick Collins released...

    ... before the game last night by aliens who had a poor clone taking his place for much of this season ;)

    It was great to see Nick play up to his promise in last night's game. He had solid coverage and hit like a sledge-hammer.

    Welcome Back Nick!!!

    Here is another unsung hero from last night's game...

    [​IMG]

    ... Brady Poppinga's monster tackle on what looked to be a sure first down killed a key
    Viking drive.

    And this guy...

    [​IMG]

    ... played like the BIG MAN Pickett is -- as did Williams.

    This DE put on constant pressure...

    [​IMG]

    ... as did Jenkins and KGB


    The game ball for last nights game goes to .... the defense!

    You got me Bruce. :thumbsup:

    I couldn't understand what he would have done to merit being released.

    For some reason. I was expecting a thread like this, for Bubba Franks. Obviously, being legit.

    Poppinga's tackle on Tav was absolutely sick. I want that man's jersey for Christmas.

    It really was!!!

    Not many guys could reach out and make that tackle. It really showed how powerful Popp is -- he has the size and strength to develop into a great (SAM) strong-side LB.




    wpr, yooperfan, Zero2Cool: Actually I kind of regret the title (in fact I am about to change if edit allows it) because it detracted from the larger point about the defense as a unit stepping up and playing great in a HUGE rivalry game with (however limited) playoff hopes for both teams on the line.

    I was Poppinga neutral before that tackle. Now I'm a Poppinga fan.

    Nope, sorry. He was a TT pick in TT's first draft. Fourth round I believe.
