    Agreed! Two bye weeks, USC early in the season before they know their new offensive system well. Looks like we have a chance to knock the monkey off our backs and get a win in the coliseum.

    I’d love to see us recruit an exciting quarterback prospect who might leapfrog the two starters and win the job. Any chance of that? Is Daniels still in the picture?

    What it must be like to criticize our 19-year old qb that led us to the precipice of a ROSE BOWL berth, all the while eating croquets and enjoying the view of the sound from a leather sofa in your downtown Seattle law office.

    (How'd I do?)

    Wasn't that Tuttle? Or your nephew?

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Leach is PAC-12 Coach of the Year. Does he deserve that honor more than Kyle?

    That was frankly hard to read. KSL needs to invest in some good editing software.

    Yes. Kyle would be a close second.

    DesNews is just as bad.

    Hoping for a 19-year old to fail is not the same thing as wishing for an 18 year old to overtake a 20 year old.

    That's easy to say while nibbling on a cucumber sandwich.

    Yeah he’s a slam dunk in my mind. Picked to finish 5th in the north. Kyle and Herm would be the runners-up.

    Hell, I’d put Chris Petersen ahead of Herm.

    Disappointing ending (Championship game and Bowl game) to an otherwise enjoyable season. Came home and watched Bird Box on Netflix. Very intense movie. I hope everyone here enjoyed a wonderful Holiday Season and that we all enjoy good health, good times and good friendships in the upcoming year. I'm putting 2018 to bed and looking forward to 2019.

    We watched Bird Box after the game too. Really liked the intensity, and enjoyed it immensely, but I can't think of another movie that had as many plot holes and unanswered questions at the end. we really scratched our heads.

    Probably a very good paycheck for Sandra Bullock for work done on a compressed schedule.
