Final Bowl Week Prospect Watch: (1/4 - 1/7)

This game is a shame. This Texas backup QB is going to finish 3-25, for 14 yards by the end of the night.

Too bad, this was going to be a good game, but you can tell that Texas has been emotionally out of it since McCoy has been out.

Pretty much. Maybe McCoy can come back and play with one arm. They might do better.

Texas has scaled back their playbook to a handfull of draw plays. They need to remember that this is the last game of the season, and you are not going to beat Bama with that kinda of play calling.

Not bad at all. Though that last play, they really just rolled right into him.

Texas is going to have to try some misdirection of something -- run people deep and let the QB run. Screens and draws aren't going to do anything here now.
Man. Arenas has been stellar all night, but Shipley beat him there. That's a good battle, just a great throw, route, catch, and run.
Patriots could use Shipley.
Now that the BCS game is about over, who are the players that improved their status and why, and who are those who dropped in their status and why? Also who would be players that we would look at?

Gainers:
DT Lamarr Houston - continued to play hard and was the one guy to consistently get pressure. Beat Mike Johnson badly several times early on.
WR Shipley - Even without their QB, has played extremely well. Two TDs.
CB Arenas - Sure he got beat once on the double-move, but never judge someone on one play. He had one bad play, the entire rest of the game he had/has been very good out there.
ILB McClain - solid all game long. A mistake being offsides, but that's about the only negative you can take from McClain tonight.

Losers:
S Earl Thomas - not physical enough, didn't make a peep in the game.
DT Terrance Cody - simply a situational player, falls deeper into the 2nd round.
SS Woodall - Blown coverages. Woodall may have to move to OLB in the Pro's.

Static (non-moving):
OLB Sergio Kindle - Did some good things, but not enough to really make any significant movement.
OG Mike Johnson - Got beat some early on, but bounce back with some outstanding blocks to even things out.

I think we could use Shipley.

He's not exactly the 'burner' WR most of us had in mind. But he could be very effective from the slot in the NFL. And most importantly, he'd be a good return guy.

I think we will probably wait until at least the third to draft a returner. But if we took one in the second, why not Shipley?
Sergio Kindle looks like a player

Rolando McClaine would be a good fit next to Pat.

Arenas is the return man we are missing

Ingram is the second coming of Emmit Smith

Shipley and Mount Cody will not be good pros.

"OLB Sergio Kindle - Did some good things, but not enough to really make any significant movement."

Kindle had a good night and I bet his stock is up after this game.
If I can now vent...

If you watched the Cent Mich/Troy game last night, you saw Cent Mich score a TD on their 1st OT possession. Up 7 now with the spread being 4.5.

Then on Troy's 1st pass, they went to the end zone, the ball was deflected and some moron from Cent Mich dropped the game-winning pick. Cent Mich went on to win, but only by 3, causing me to lose the game in my pool.

Had 'Bama tonight, but it wasn't enough.

If he would have picked that off, I would have won $217.50.

Whoever that guy is, he's not a pro prospect.

I wouldn't say "Loser", its not his fault Bama ran the ball 90% of the time with Ingram and Richardson, who Thomas made a nice open field tackle on 3rd and 2. And not physical enough, dude was throwing his body AT the RB's, he could be blamed for miss tackles, but not physical enough C'mon.

Same goes with Cody, Bama knew Texas would pass more so they went with more of a pass rushing front.
