    I think Chambers is getting a bad wrap in week 1 by many. I think he played a great game. He blocked well, and had some nice attempted diving catches. I think no one in the NFL catches as well as he does when stretched out for a pigskin. He hauled in a few key first downs as well.

    If Chambers did what he did in week 1 every game, he would have 1 616 yards from scrimmage.

    Lets keep going.

    Ronnie would have 976 total yards
    Gus would pass for 4 400 yards
    McMike catch 880 yards
    Marty 1 664 receiving
    Wes 2 500 all-purpose yards

    Zack would have 224 tackles
    T-buck 176

    And so on.

    And oh ya, going by week 1 averages Miami would go 16-0 ….

    It is really interesting how those numbers work out. I think most of us would guess that only Ronnie and Randy have a real shot at making their numbers. I guess Wes could also hit his mark.

    So Chambers still wouldn't have a 1000 yard year by your analysis...Hmm, not good for a #1 receiver in a vertical Offense.

    Edit, is that 1616 and is that all purpose yards? So he still won't have a 1000 yards receiving...okay I stick by my first comment.

    Just a question, off the top of your head how many times was Chambers thrown at that game?

    Also good to see a fellow Sask phin fan, where abouts in sask?

    Ya should be able to get an idea where we stand in the next few weeks, since it is the NFL's hardest schedule. To be the best you have to beat the best, so time will tell.

    I think people call Jones that, though I don't really get it. The standard for that nickname if you ask me is (first name initial)-(last name abbreviation).

    T-Buck the corner that played with Madison is gone, he was awhile ago. T-Buck the safety from the Saints was signed this off season.

    Terrell Buckley played pretty well for us for quite a while and T-Buck was his nick, so I have a hard time using it for somebody else. Buckley earned it.

    Even though Tebuckey's name actually sounds like "T-Buck" I think he should be called something else.

    Thats my 2 cents worth anyway

    I agree with you. Besides, how hard is it to add the "y" sound to the end? Why not just call him "Tebuckey"?

    Wasn't T-Buck Jones the reason why Sammy Knight was let go in NO? and then we let Go of Sammy knight and the Dude comes here?

    Now that is history repeating itself.

    speaking of which, NO had Lamar Smith and replaced him with Ricky williams, and then we have lamar smith, and replace him with ricky williams!

    Okay I am scared now.

    Ronnie Brown had a nickname I hope has died before he came to us, too. They're Dolphins now. The past means nothing. :)

    Very true. I work in sports stats and don't spend one second on individual numbers other than QB.

    One area we need to work on is defensive yards per pass attempt in road games. That has been an achilles heel of our stop unit for years. The year Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl they had the alltime freakish stat I've ever seen in 15+ years of looking at sports statistics, past and present. The Buccs allowed 4.74 yards per attempt on the road. It's the equivalent of Secretariat's Belmont and Lance Armstrong's 7 straight Tours rolled into one. So, naturally, the mainstream media has never mentioned it. That road pass defense superiority took charge in the playoffs when Tampa Bay won at Philadelphia and dominated the Raider passing game on a neutral field.

    I bring up that '02 defensive YPA stat because it contrasted so starkly with our 7.47 number during the same year. We wanted to pretend we had a great defense but that difference from Tampa Bay down to us was more than 50%. I think we were 25th or worse in the league in road defensive YPPA. During our playoff caliber years of late, the only season we were statistically good in road pass defense was the season we faced the likes of Ryan Leaf and Akili Smith. I'll be very interested to see how we fare in this regard beginning Sunday.
