I guess now we know what happened to Bryce Love.

The problem is Tannehill sucks too.    If the coaching staff wanted to maximize their skillsets, Tannehill would move back to WR and Mariota should be running a shaved ice concession stand.

Looking like a WR/WR start at the turn with Jacobs in the third for me lol

Same. Juju plus whoever else and snag Jacobs and either Godwin or another RB for me from pick 11

Cardinals 3/8 for 12 yards and 5 rushes for 10 yards in nearly a whole half with most of the 1st team. 

Yikes. Yikes. Yikes. 

 

How long did the Raiders have their 1st team D in?

There’s going to be some coach speak coming out of Arizona about how they “didn’t want to reveal the full deck”. Fine, understood. But with the few cards you chose to reveal, how come it didn’t look better?

Don't kill my dreams. I'll prolly go cook/juju though. I think both are in for monster seasons barring health

better go JuJu at 11 ... think he'll get snagged on the turn by the chap in the 12 hole if you pass - Cook will be there at 14.

I don't think Jacobs is going to suddenly spike based on tonight. Nothing headline inducing. Likely good news.

 

yeah, no one said ZOMG!!1!111!1! HE'S ALL WORLD! FIRST RD NOW!

 

i was simply saying that a talented kid, who is proficient for all downs and distance, in an offense that has potential "ooommph", ain't lasting 'til back of rd three.

Ryan Finley 8/8 for 79 yards and a score. If Dalton does Dalton things, there will be cries for Finley this season. 

 

I watched quite a bit of Finley at NC State and that dude is really good. It's insane that the Bengals got him in the 4th round.

Cardinals are frustrating to watch

 

I know to not put too much stock into preseason, but if this team is gonna do big things offensively I'd have expected the Week 1 starters to not have looked like complete crap in their limited work.

Ameer abdullah looked like a pro bowler in preseason. I put little to no stock in these games.

 

Agree.  I think the things you do look out for in preseason are -

1. Player usage in the 2nd and especially the 3rd preseason game.  Regardless of the depth chart, you will see who the starters are and whether it looks like a timeshare.

2. How the rookies look.

The rest is just anxiety producing stuff.  These are all small sample sizes in the preseason.  They only play a few series, or at most a half.  I mean, take last year's Superbowl.  If that game happened during the preseason, with both teams playing their starters all game, we would all be fading the Rams and Pats offenses.

3 more preseason games on tap tonight:

Bills @ Panthers - I'll be keeping an eye on Devin Singletary, and will the summer of Curtis Samuel continue?

Dolphins @ Buccaneers - Preston Williams!

Bears @ Giants - Definitely going to be watching David Montgomery closely, and will Daniel Jones build on his success from their first game?

I'm not in anyway trying to compare Daniel Jones to Kyler Murray, but what I'm seeing from Jones is what I was hoping to see from Murray. Jones on a 2nd and 13 converts with a nice throw on target. Jones connects with Latimer on a 40 yard out with a perfectly placed ball. Now Jones did fumble the next snap, but its those type of throws that you want to see in preseason.
