I remember the preseason game against Philly last year. We looked HORRIBLE. Although we want to look dominant all the time, it's ok to throw in a stinker periodically in the preseason.

When Manning was with the Colts, they never seemed to win a preseason game. It happens every year - people make predictions about the regular season based on preseason. There are always teams that look dominant early and suck when the bullets fly for real. Same thing is true the other way around.

Just a bit of perspective.

Cam never runs in pre season anyway so its hard to say he didnt because of the ankle. Im confident he will be ready to go week 1.

I am amazed at how many people don't think Bersin is that good because he played on the practice squad last year.  

 

Of course the reasoning is that he is playing against second and third team players.  Rightly so, but he doesn't control when he plays.  But when he is put into the game he performs.

 

I think he has earned the right to win the #2 spot.  You don't know if he will succeed unless you put him in there with the first team.  

 

I'm betting he makes a difference.

I think the Pats did something more teams will be doing against our front 4. Keeping 6-7 in to block, and using the dink and dunk approach. I know it's preseason, and we didn't adjust to it. Which I think will be addressed moreso in the regular season.

It is something I wish we did more of. Quicker patterns to keep Defenses honest.

Star looked great, sack and chased down the running backs.

TD looked awesome with that suplex. Stud. Was it Klein that got burned on that rb wheel route?

KB is just exciting to watch. Can't wait to see him to continue to develop. U can tell he's got the timing down with cam, more so than any other receiver.

Is like to see Stewart start and agree with zods thread on dwill being the 3rd. He just doesn't have the quickness to get through those holes anymore (even the oline wasn't opening many holes).

Great photos and write up per usual zod, even though we had a night that we'd like to forget.

I do like the play calling on our first drive though. I almost spit out my Cheetos when we came out passing instead of the handoff to dwill for no gain.

KB > Revis.

 

 

Would love to see some of the Benji Gifs from the Pats game if anyone has any or know where to get them from.    The high one where he plucked the ball out of the air like it was nothing against Revis,  especially.

If there's one thing that pisses me off to no end, it J Stew's contract. But he's a beast when he's healthy and on the field. Hope he does big things this year. We're going to need it. Great photos, by the way.

Lol that JA KB pic is not good at all lol

 

But when I look at the pic, one thing screams out at me, actually 2 lol but...

 

The way they're holding him and the look tells me he's going to be a problem for defenses and they will definitely focus in on him. Which is pretty amazing cause he's a rookie, but it just means we NEED others to step up

Has Star slimmed down some from last year?

The Panthers suck, no receivers outside of Benji, well maybe Bersin.  We don't want to run 2 te sets.  The oline can't open  a gap to get a worm thru.  The corners looked out matched a lot and if Decoud is out there, big chunk plays majority of the game.  Wtf is Gettleman thinking this year?
