  1. If there's competition, I don't rate our chances being very high.
  2. Every year around training camp time, we've had a "catch all" thread for NFL news of general interest. So here's this year's version, starting with an old friend... Another formerly coveted draft prospect... A surprising retirement, and a hit to the Colts O-Line... The Browns making a change on their line... And an item not technically in the NFL, but huge news nonetheless... Meyer has reportedly been placed on paid leave, pending investigation.

    Would probably mean cutting somebody, and not necessarily just a scrub.
  4. I try not to gush about stuff, but man... That touchdown to Ian Thomas was textbook.

    Tepper seen tailgating w/fans

    @RoaringRiot (I don't have Twitter) "Sergeant Tepper" and "Mr. T" are good ones. I'm not that big a fan of "Tep Cat" but that seems to be a popular one with several others. Honestly though, anything but "Big Cat"

    For those who were interested in Scandrick...
  7. Tessler is also Mike Remmers agent.
  8. Part of me wonders whether Tepper cares about that. He wasn't here when Smith played so there's no emotional connection for him. And having seen Smith from the perspective of an opponent might not have given him the best impression. On the flipside, Tepper has shown he's very attentive to what fans care about. And he's eager to please on that front also. A lot of fans want to mend fences with Smith (though admittedly Smith himself seems like he couldn't care less). So yeah, who knows how he feels on this? It'll be interesting to find out, I suppose.

    Winners/Losers - 2nd preseason game

    We have an OC that can do that now.

    Well, at least that was rooted in encouraging people to fight cancer. It's far superior to John Bowlen's options of "keep drinking" or "keep speeding". Maybe until her own father's trust fund decides she actually is qualified to run NFL team, Beth Bowlen could go with "keep trying".
  11. I was asking the same question. I'm guessing it's related to the new kickoff rules.
  12. I'm not certain that's the kind of "alumni affairs" they're talking about. The description I'm reading makes it sound like someone who's going to work with current and former players regarding their community outreaches and projects. Interesting that we got this announcement while still not having heard anything regarding the team president job.
  13. They have an offensive coach who made Alex Smith look good at a time when everyone thought he was a bust. You have to factor that in as well.
  14. Realistically, the vast majority of teams who don't have an eagle for a mascot are screwed if their starter goes down, even contending teams. There's also our cap situation. Yes, moves can be made, but it'd be tricky. I'd absolutely favor having McCown back if we could afford him. As far as our current options go, don't discount that having Turner definitely helps.
  15. A few years ago I might have agreed, but I've seen what backup quarterbacks around the league these days look like. If they ultimately do decide to go outside the current options, Matt Moore seems like a more likely option than Teddy Bridgewater.

    2 TE set will solve the OL problems

    Yep. Just an old fashioned trap block like I've seen since I played Pee Wee / Midget, but he does it exactly like you're supposed to. Pretty good chance he won himself a starting spot last night.
  17. He did a great job fighting for the ball on that late long reception last night. I'd have to add that Gilbert put that ball in a really good spot for him too.
  18. Oh, and Christian McCaffrey is a decent player He'll probably make the team.
  19. I'd still give Gilbert the edge over Heineke. He just seems to be the more accurate passer of the two.
  20. One other thought: Preseason game two tends to be a good "pump your brakes" game. A lot of the stuff that you get way too excited about in week one doesn't always show up in the following week D J Moore, Taylor Heineke and Jarius Wright were examples of that this time. Doesn't mean they won't have a good season, but don't measure them for their gold jackets just yet
  21. I'll add that although he didn't necessarily have a particularly bad night, it's pretty obvious that Ryan Kalil is not all he used to be.
