Don't know if this was posted somewhere else or everybody knows about it already, but he's starting against Pittsburgh today.

Is it just me or is Aikman extremely hesitant to say anything good about Choice?

He looks pretty öööö good for his first career start being in Pittsburgh in December

"Transferred to Georgia Tech to have a chance to play.."

I'm pretty sure he transferred because of a sick family member, correct?

And I think Aikman was just complimenting Choice, so I stand corrected. Also, Romo is playing like garbage.

Yes Choice's mother, who lived in an Atlanta suburb, broke her foot and needed work around the house, although I would be naive to say Adrian Peterson wasn't a factor.

I also used to be a diehard Cowboys fan and Aikman HATED Gailey. I don't if that's coloring his commentary or not.

TC has got some good cut blocks in the backfield and I don't know who it was but a Pitt LB caught on and tried to jump over him but Choice stood up and pushed him back leaving plenty of time for Romo to throw another bad pass. He's gotten a couple of good carries and catches in, but he has tripped up a couple of times where he could have gotten a first down. Overall he looks like he could be a bit nervous or he just is having a hard time with that field/weather.

Well, Choice looks like Walter Peyton compared with the rest of Dallas' offense today.

I doubt he would have seen many carries behind AP.

Yeah he would have only gotten a entire season his senior year, half the year his junior year (Peterson broken collar bone) and 5 games his sophomore year (Peterson high ankle sprain).

So all in all, he got about 4-5 more starts at Tech than he would have gotten at Oklahoma. This of course assuming he would have still been the best player on the OU team last year and 2nd best behind Peterson his sophomore and Junior year.


edit: who the crap is romo throwing to in this game? Half of his passes aren't within 10 yards of any of his guys.

The point is that it's not the reason he transferred.

He's breaking a couple of big runs and he had a vicious block on a LB on the completion to the TE just a second ago. They're fawning all over him now.

Watching him do well in his very first NFL start just pisss me off.

I mean, how in the hell did we not do any better with TC and Calving freakin' Johnson on the same team!? Gooodness, GAILEY was such a fargin loser!!!!!

I think Tashard has put up the most rushing yards against the Steelers this year.

Remember, if we had done just a little better, Gailey might still be here. That should put you at ease.

and yet, I see Tech fans on the board occasionally mention Houston Nutt as being a "good coach"

He had Darren McFadden, Felix Jones, AND Peyton Hillis (who is doing a fine job as Denver's starting FB) in the backfield last year and Arkansas didn't do a whole lot better than Tech did.

He truly was a complete loser of a coach. I say this with the utmost confidence. Give me one year to watch up close a solid coach run a solid program, I could coach better than Gailey. I truly mean that. And I could actually hire a competent person to call plays and recruit a decent QB.

I've been a TECH fan all my life and the only thing to compare Gailey to was Bill Lewis (forgive the mention)-- I should just forget and move on but every time I see him mentioned on this board I GRIT my teeth--Calvin and Tashard excelled IN SPITE of him-- I truly have NO doubt BOR would have been a better coach. This is not hindsight I screamed about him his last 3 seasons. (Please forgive the vent):hsugh:

i think that is one of the most idiotic comments even you have made BoR, and in public even! wow

Hell give me the chance. I'm confident I can manage a team better than Gailey. Lets take a straw poll. Given the choice of Chan Gailey coming back to coach, or me, who would everyone choose?
