Yeah, I'd have to say that he got a very big "not even remotely impressive stamp" on last night's performance. I think Carey Davis is going to take over whatever role Barlow was going to have.

You beat me to it...Barlow is just a bump under Carey Davis' feet. I think he looked like a clone of Barry "Bananas" Foster and would think that he will be number two on the depth chart if he continues his performance from last night through the rest of pre-season.

I absolutely agree. He didn't do much for the Jets last year either. I'd expect him to be cut. Davis looked quality.

How about Cedrick last night? In rare form. I couldn't believe it!

Other honorable mentions are Ben's mobility in the pocket.

Willie Reid...NEEDS....TO....HOLD.....THE...BALL!

As does Washington - another sure TD pass dropped last night, and that wasn't the only one.

Strong concerns regarding Washington who seems to always find a way to drop the ball at critical junctures. Trying to be paitient with Reid who is way behind the curve due to last seasons injury but unless he shows dramatic improvement by the end of preseason it may be time to part ways with him.

Parker

There is only room for 2 more.

Barlow
Russell
Kuhn
Davis

I vote Davis and Russell with Kuhn on the practice squad.

Did Kuhn run the ball at all last night? i don't even think he was even dressed, I guess Russell has played Kuhn out of a job. Russell did look very good on his limited chances, plus, if you go to the ESPN Box Score, he made 4 tackles last night, second highest for the team. Considering we didn't turn the ball over, that means he made 4 ST tackles, and we all know how we need to improve on ST.

Washington has been given enough opportunity to perform, with many balls thrown at him. He is always dropping big passes! Last night he would have scored, possibly, if he'd have pulled his head out of his ass first.

Reminds me of last season, at home vs the Bungholes. Ben hit him in the hands twice at the goal line, and we all know the result.

Reid has to hold onto the ball. I thought it was a fumble, but glad to see the ref's call it correctly. What is it with our returners?

I think the entire team looked pretty impressive, especially the first team O and D - WOW! LaMar Woodley stood out, as did Carey Davis and Cedric Wilson. I believe SanTo has only gotten faster and he really looked energized when he was in the game. I loved the hang time on Sep's punts - that is going to be a big plus on STs. For a first game with only a little over 2 weeks of camp, I'd say I was quite impressed overall!

I was impressed with the big hits from Madison and Gay but I would like to see them wrap their arms when the hit a guy.
