Default The Game

Not very exciting, but Ben looked ready. The rookie receivers looked OK and that rookie safety looks like he might really be something. Omar settled down after a bad first series.

Default Re: The Game

Just to name a few.......

Thought Duce looked good.

Thought both Holmes and Reid looked good. Holmes ended up with what? 4 or 5 catches?

Thought Keisel looked good.

Thought Anthony Smith looked good.

Thought Colclough played solid.

Defense needs to step it up on 3rd downs. This wouldn't be that much of a concern for me if it wasn't our 1st string getting toasted on 3rd downs.

Bottomline: It's preseason.

Ben looked ok, his internal clock seemed to be working.

The screen pass was working well for us, not sure how long that is going to last.

I didn't get to see as much from Duce as I would have liked. Maybe next game we'll get to see him get some carries with the 1st team OL?

I think Santonio Holmes looked good, one bad play he caused an interception though. They used him on crossing routes instead of post patterns so we didn't get to see his breakaway speed.

Willie Reid looked okay, I like that he goes straight up field when he gets the kickoffs but he didn't break anything today. He looks capable as a WR also.

Quincy had his chance and muffed it. What else is new?

Nate Washington seemed average, some good, some bad.

We really passed the ball a lot today. Kind of makes me worry a bit.

Kurt Warner sure picked apart our first team defense on that first series. He didn't have a lot of time either.

Were you and I watching the same game? Kurt had all kinds of time out there today. Give any quarterback that amount of time and he'll be able to pick apart any secondary.

SOMEHOW I missed the first hour

Did I hear Casey got injured!? And was Ike Taylor getting burned or did I see the replays incorrectly?

The second half defensive line took too long to settle down. What was up with the mistackles. Frazier and Vickers finally started to get it going. Smith is a beauty.

Same with the O-line. Some good plays and some bad plays by Colon but I like him. Kemoeatu didn't get a chance to show us his skill blocking downfield because of the broken play but was quick to get into position. He got smoked and nearly gave up the sack but did have good blocks.

Phillips looked a little shaky.

We have a horse race at the receiver position. Reid proved he'll go up, get it and hold on.

Humes is what I think he is. He lacked that extra gear - the play calling got him out there and I was waiting and waiting and waiting. I'd lean towards 3 RBs. Oh yeah. Kuhn proved that the practice squad still can work.
