Post your player observations here!
I missed the majority of the game...so please anyone with thoughts, I'd love to hear how Meriweather looked specifically.
Lua looked good
Richardson showed well
Bam's eyes freaked me out on closeups
Kight turned the wrong way on the corner fade and the craptastic announcers blamed it on Gut
Evans and Faulk looked good
Mills did some good things
Washington is safe for now
Merriwether was quite active
Pats1 was great.
No kidding. I was thinking about how sh!!ty the announcers were and the signal was awful, the audio was behind in the first half.
Oh and who the hell is that bonehead, #41?
The soon to be former patriot? Guy could have at least shown a sense of embarrassment for losing the game...
There could be something to this Richardson fella...
Meriweather was in on a lot of plays...
Oh...I think that Tom Brady kid has potential.
Anyone catch the Jets match-up, Kellen Clemens looked pretty sharp. 3 TDs.
WR...Gaffney is on the team, Washington might make it to.
QB...Vinny might not make the team.
LB...Lua and Rogers(sp) looked good.
DB's...Merriweather needs to get there sooner and I think he can.
Too bad, I liked Anam. But he does deserve it for that play.
What about each of their 2 receptions leads you to believe that they are on the team?
Why do you think Vinny might not make the team?
What did he do?...
Got a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct call on a punt for running out of bounds and not immediately re-entering.
He was the gunner and he was getting pushed toward the sidelines on the punt, so he moved out of bounds and sprinted down the field while out of bounds, got a penalty and not to mention missed the tackle.
Matt Light looks like Kurt Cobain's long lost and much heavier brother.
lol what a goof.
Jeez Pats1, I made my observations in the other thread I'll try to edit so they make sense.
Some might disagree, but I bet Rodgers, Mays and Lua might need to keep the tape of this game to show their grandkids.
Rodgers made lots of plays, but they made some big runs outside him. Cardinal sin, got to stay in your lane on this team.
Lua hits hard, but hits with no wrap up and spinning a QB around instead of burying him don't make it for an ILB.
Mays just looks lost.
I predict (jumping to conclusions, obviously) 1 of three makes it at all, either PS or STs. Hopefully their play in future exhibitions changes my mind.
Richardson made 2 good plays in a row, Mills looks agile.
Santonio Thomas, who won't make nothing, continues to look better than the young LBs (who have a real shot), IMO. Oh well.
What's a Quinton Smith and why can't we have one?
gave up a chunk of yardage on the next play or two as well on an under route
but mostly...didn't look upset that he had f'd up...
Looked great early. The big drives at the end made you wonder why their was no outside containment so I watched.
Obviously not a comprehensive analysis, but that's just such a big no no on this team. Could be, he gets a talking to and looks great.
On the other hand, it could be why he was "always around the ball" early.
Time will tell, but time is quite limited for some.
On the other hand, I don't know diddley, so we must take that into account.
to all who didn't see the game, the start time conditions were: 90F with a heat index of 108F
I think "Washington might make this team"....is an understatement after what he showed tonight.....of course we will have to see what else he brings in the coming weeks.....but he made some great catches and laid out there/went after every ball like a man possessed......meanwhile caldwell got a penalty and was basically ineffective..
No s**t. I live in this lovely part of hell.
Yeah, I saw in the game thread that some people were already to give Washington a roster spot and cut Caldwell on the limited action tonight. It was two catches by Washington and one false start by Caldwell. So nothing in practice means anything over the last two weeks and five plays, including Gaffney's two catches, in the first preseason game will settle our back up WR position?
And we are judging Washington on his play on two catches being covered by Phillip Buchanon of all people. He couldn't even cut it on Houston's horrible defense.
Let's wait another couple games before we consider him a lock for a roster spot over two damn catches.
I believe we're required to make passionate, impulsive decisions when it comes to wide receivers.
Part of the football fans code.
I think calling Washington might make the team an understatement is an overstatement. He caught two balls being covered by Phillip Buchanon. Caldwell was ineffective being covered by Ronde Barber. I wonder how each would have done if they switched people covering them.
People have been doing it since the AFC Championship game when it comes to Caldwell, why stop now.
then you dine with Leonidas? cool!
Learning edge containment in the 3-4 is one of the hardest things to learn in the transition to outside linebacker from defenseive end. Rogers showed a nose for the ball which is what you want to see in these you players learning a completely new system and/or position.
