I was really impressed with LaFell last night

LaFell looked pretty good last night at #2.. But did anyone catch that interview on the sidelines?

I've never heard LaFell or any other receiver for that matter speak so respectfully of this team. You can tell his heart is in it. And the amount of respect he and the other guys have for Steve Smith. Even having the balls to call him a future HOF tells you how much they love him. Even Norman mentioned how playing with Steve had made him better.

 

I'm really liking the vibe of this team and I feel like there is a new found confidence and self respect they will be playing with this season.

No I missed it because I was at the game hopefully they will show it again when they replay the game on NFL network. And like yourself I like how this team is going about things you can definitely tell they want it more this year and are looking to prove something.

All i was was the easy touchdown when matched up with a linebacker. Not ready to anoint him yet.

LaFell has always showed spurts of being exceptional. With him the question has always been about consistency.  I don't know whether it has been him, QB decisions, the personnel around him, or a combination of these things that has held him from reaching that higher plane---the place that brings out consistent fear and respect in the opposition---but hopefully all this talk about trust from Cam, as well as the positive reports out of camp, means this is truly the year that LaFell breaks through.

not the point. lafell has progressed steadily since he was drafted to earn a full-time starting position on this team. he's shown the dedication to becoming a better route-runner, ball-handler, and separation-getter. he's also trusted as an excellent blocker.

 

all of these things take heart, desire, and guts. his progression from a raw and flawed mid-round pick makes him the charles johnson of the offense.

I agree on one thing, you can tell this team has a different "personality" than previous teams. They seem to be more focused and have everyone on board with what Rivera is trying to do

Actually he wasn't matched up against a LB, number 27 was covering Lafell, but got picked by Armanti and had to go over the top of the pick.

He wasn't in there for but a few plays. Smith only had once catch for ten yards and I don't see people saying he has lost a step.

Get a grip people.

You have to forgive Chuck. I think LaFell banged his mom and/or girlfriend.

I just think it's near impossible to judge starters in preseason until week three when they play around a half of football.

If you want judge someone, judge someone who played quite a bit of plays like Anderson Russell, David Gettis, or James Dockery.
