I don’t remember Arlington Heights ever having a winless season.
But after that travesty Saturday night, it’s not out of the question.
Arlington Heights 7, Paschal 42
at #24 TCU 38, SE Louisiana 17
at Liberty 45, Monmouth 15
Houston 31, at San Diego 28
I fell asleep in my Comfy Chair before Texan-Charger, and didn’t wake up until it was over.
I missed the Texans coming from a 21-point deficit to win on Randy Bullock’s last-second 41-yard field goal.
“Once you put a score on the board, then another, and the defense gets a stop, the big turnover, it just builds,” said [quarterback Matt] Schaub, who bounced back from an interception on Houston’s first play to pass for 346 yards. “Momentum keeps building, and you can feel that energy, and it’s contagious.”
Brian Cushing returned an interception 18 yards for the tying touchdown with 9:30 to play for the Texans, who erased a 28-7 deficit late in the third quarter to spoil the debut of Chargers coach Mike McCoy.
After two straight division titles and playoff trips, the Texans have ample experience in handling trouble together. Schaub provided steady leadership, and their vaunted defense held San Diego to 90 yards — just 7 on the ground — in the second half.
Maybe I should’ve given Monmouth the SpatulaLine.
Liberty scored five unanswered touchdowns before Monmouth managed to rally slightly in the fourth quarter with a 42-yard Greg DePugh touchdown pass to Zach Fabel and an Eric Spillane field goal. But it was too little too late.
SE Lousiana may have just saved TCU’s season…by taking out Casey Pachall.
Pachall, who missed most of last season after an arrest on suspicion of drunken driving, injured his left forearm at the end of a running play late in the second quarter, didn’t return and was ruled out of TCU’s Big 12 opener at Texas Tech on Thursday night.
“Probably not good,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said, declining to offer any specifics. “He won’t play next week. I can promise you that.”
Later, the university confirmed to ESPN.com that Pachall had surgery on his non-throwing arm and is expected to miss multiple games.
Thing about it was, Pachall wasn’t impressing anyone prior to getting hurt. And he sure as Hell wasn’t moving the TCU offense.
And after he got hurt, Trevon Boykin came in – and basically got the offense going, helping the Frogs score 24 unanswered points to put the game away.
Pachall’s had surgery on his left arm, and will be out at least eight weeks. Which may be the best thing for the Frogs, at least this season.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and call for a Yellow Jacket victory, given that the Panthers have been generally atrocious the last few years.
If I’m wrong, expect me to be the first one to call for Phillip Young’s head.
Fire Phillip Young. Now.
At least Todd Whitten could beat Paschal.
It’s 0-2 now…and if you can’t beat Paschal, you very likely can’t beat anyone.
Get this poser out of here now.
This week: 3-1. Overall: 4-3.
The PFW returns Thursday, when we once again shake our collective head at the thuggery that is Ndamukong Suh.
