i like that -- game on the line and he is telling his QB that he is the target

during the game, i thought that was a prayer Kyler threw -- apparently there was some thought process to it
Kyler has a history of throwing deep with the game on the line. Of course he had Hopkins, Green and Kirk on the end of some of those that come to my mind. Good to see him give a kid like McBride that chance and he delivers.

lol, hey there are a few of us in that club PA! :)

I thought Murray played very well today, and I'm super excited to see MO build around him! Also for JG/NR to build a defense that will get the offense a few short fields every now and then!
Yes, there are a few of you that would attempt to come to my rescue lol. But, too many conceded when the going got too tough against the Murray haters. You were always there to support!!

Again, one thing that holds a lot of these college TEs back once they go to the NFL is they just aren't used enough. Not shocking McBride starts breaking out when he has to play more snaps due to a washed vet getting injured.
Right. But McBride calling for the ball and then making a great play on it goes a long way towards earning the trust to get his number called.

Injury experts: what were the chances of tearing his knee up like thar on a non-contact play? Was it a freak accident or was it the way he juked at the end? Did he have to change his running style for not to happen again? Because it was a non-contact play on “the best turf (grass) in the NFL” and we don’t want to see that to any of our players.

Still need a WR 1. LG and Tackle with Humpries perhaps trending down. Dline run stuffers, and a CB. Between draft and FA we can fill all these areas and still add depth elsewhere.
This roster needs a ton of work for sure. This doesn't change that other than we may have a young, above average NFL TE on our roster. Hopefully he continues to lock down the starting TE spot.

You forgot rb. When Connor isn’t in there it’s a severe drop off that stifles our running game.

Agree. But the kid had to earn it. Targets don't come free and guys who play soft get less opportunities...up until a couple games back Trey played mostly soft. We been seeing him ramp up the effort to make the most of his opportunities the past couple games and it resulted in a game where he was trusted enough to get his number called a lot... I imagine if he keeps getting after it like this we will see lots more games where he has great stats.
“Soft” was never a word I would’ve used with mcbride. “Pressing in limited opportunities” maybe.
