Of course anyone who bets preseason games probably has Gamblers Anonymous on speed dial

Agreed he looked quick

Hard to say what Troy's role in the long TD pass was - might have just been a typical Big Play Willie Gay f**k up

I think I'm about done watching for tonight though. These 2nd and 3rd teams probably won't do much of anything.

It's all about Howling tonight man! I'm not surprised about Dwyer, but maybe he'll step up the plate a little.

It's always tough watching the first preseason game but this year is more difficult,I realize that it's preseason but I'm finding myself stressing about a few things that are off with this team. Gradkowski looks very sharp

Agreed, I edited right after posting to add a comment about how quick and explosive Howlings looked.

He could really be an asset.

My favorite over/under story was a blowout Monday Night game back in the day when the kickoff was at 9 EST - the game went on forever and sometime after midnight Al Michaels said "for those of you still watching good luck with your over/under bets"

Michaels clearly knew, as did I since that was why I was still watching, that a late score would put the total score over

I know, and I saw the name come up and said "Who??"

And from there, I was wowed. He made something out of nothing a couple times. He really could be. Lets hope we finally find our back.

That's some good ST action there, with a punt caught on the 3 plus the stupid penalty....

Special team fucks up as usual. Nothing's changed there.

Sorry for dropping all the bombs tonight guys. Guess I was just ready to see some football.
