That was a horrible penalty flag called on Chris McCain.  Totally ridiculous.  We aren't playing pitty pat here!  Good hit.

I agree. Reich was a bit mad with that call.

There have been some crazy roughing penalties this year

They added that crazy part of landing on the QB.

Clark, Vujnovich, and Bond end 2017 starting on the OL, and today they play the 3rd quarter of the final preseason game.  Goes to show just how bad our OL had gotten last year after all the injuries and thin veneer of talent to begin with.

On a flip note:

 

Mike Person, Colts lineman last year, is favored to start at RG for the 49ers. Taking over for 2016 1st round OG Barnett.

It's frustrating.  I understand the intent but the refs need to get a handle on this new rule.  They seem to be calling it too much.

This is what I thought as well.

 

Not saying its a good call, but by the words of the rule, it probably falls under that. He also drove him in the ground a little, I think. I believe that is also in the new rule.

 

Cant drive through and have to try and not land with all your weight on them? Something like that

Caroline Cann does a nice job.  I enjoy her.

I love hearing Rakestraw too but since he does a lot of IHSAA events I might be partial

REFS are ruining Football or it's Goodell actually. Might as well be Flag Football. I understand safety but these rules are ruining the game. It's Football = a contact sport and violent game, it is what it is. They have already changed so many rules protecting players over the last few years, now they are going overboard with it IMO. I am not sure I am going to enjoy watching Football this season as much as I used too.

It will not be fun when these type of calls start costing teams games that count.

I agree 100%. Everytime a 3rd and long is getting ready to happen, I am thinking a Flag will be thrown now over something chintzy.

Packers fans are right. Pipkins can definitely tackle. I wondered if he already was guaranteed a spot because he wasn't playing in the game but he's out there now.

 

I don't know if he was traded for just to have another body at corner for this game, or if he's going to make the roster.

I'm thinking if he was signed just to have another body at corner then he would have played more.  Seems to me the Colts already feel like they know what they got in him and just sent him in to play a few snaps to get his feet wet before the opener.  But we will find out soon enough.

Never understood why Person was cut.  He played well when he was here.  Barnett is bad though.

They always over call new rules in preseason, to get players and coaches acclimated. In season, there will be fewer (but it will still be more than previous years) called. However, I bet fines skyrocket on plays the refs don't call but the NFL reviews as a foul.  Players will learn by their wallet and a little less by yellow flag.  Watch.

Agreed, if it is an obvious mistake. (no helmet involved first).  But if it was crown of helmet... oh well.

    • Luck and Manning had considerably more bank (contract and endorsements), and considerably more post NFL options. It's just not comparable to AC's financial situation. Sure he could live comfortably on what he has, but I think you're undervaluing what would more than double his net worth and take him to a new level from a financial security perspective. 
    • Hes been the same since college.  His draft preview stated so.  Hes the common denominator.  
    • Williams was pretty good when given the opportunity.  Wouldn't doubt if another team gets him and gives him more playing time.  
    • Tua's health is still the X factor right now.  Here is a scouting report (by a real respected scout) overview of 5 QB's practice days at the Senior Bowl recently.  Sorry for length:   South team QB's   Tuesday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon Herbert looked phenomenal on Tuesday displaying all the physical tools and leadership skills necessary for the next level. He was right on the money with many of his throws and his pass placement was off the charts. He made plays in and out of the pocket, displayed a next level arm and great athleticism. His incomplete passes were more about drops by receivers rather than missed throws on his part. And when his receivers dropped a pass Herbert was there to take charge. Terrific day by the Oregon quarterback.   Wednesday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon It was another effective day for Herbert, though one could make the argument he was slightly better yesterday. He was right on the money with his throws and showed terrific pass placement. I don’t think Herbert had as many dynamic throws today, but he also had fewer errant passes and misses. Again, he displayed a good degree of leadership throughout the entire session.   Thursday- QB Justin Herbert, Oregon Thursday was another terrific practice for Herbert. While he probably had more misses Thursday than any of the previous two days, he consistently showed the ability to drop the ball in the bucket and place passes where only his target could come away with the reception.   Tuesday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Hurts had his struggles today, especially early on. He was often late delivering passes and receivers were waiting for the ball to arrive. Several of his attempts had pass catchers leaving their feet to grab the pass from midair. I got the idea watching Hurts, he is much more comfortable playing in Oklahoma’s wide open system and it’s going to take some adjustment to get accustomed to an NFL type of scheme.   Wednesday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma If Hurts struggled on Tuesday, he was just outright bad on Wednesday. Excluding one terrific pass he placed in the hands of Stephen Sullivan down the left sideline, Hurts was off the mark all day. He missed wide open receivers throwing against air and put pass catchers in perilous positions when they were covered.   Thursday- QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Thursday was a slightly better day for Hurts, and it was quite possibly his best practice of the week. He showed better accuracy and throws a catchable ball, but he still forced too many passes and missed a number of open receivers.   North team QB's Tuesday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Love did not have quite the day of Justin Herbert but he wasn’t far behind. He made several magnificent passes throughout the day and drew a lot of praise from the scouts around me. He has a super quick, super-efficient release, a live arm and showed some beautiful pass placement. There were a couple of passes that got away from him and he was not quite as effective on the move compared to Herbert, but it was an “A” day for Love.   Wednesday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Love had another terrific day on Wednesday. While one could argue he was more inconsistent than Day 1, most of his throws were on the mark and delivered with great speed, and most of the time he made really good decisions   Thursday- QB Jordan Love, Utah State Thursday was another solid day for Love, although one could argue he was not as effective as he was the prior two practices. He displayed a big-league arm and got the ball through tight windows, but he also made some questionable throws that included one bad interception.   Tuesday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State Gordon displayed a lot of next level physical skills and possesses an NFL arm. He also needs a lot of work on his game. While he showed the ability to fire the ball into targets, his pass placement and accuracy was all over the place. When Gordon needed to drop a ball into the tight window, he was unable.   Wednesday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State While Gordon has his moments on Wednesday, for the most part he showed a lot of inconsistency. He did a better job placing throws and dropping them into targets’ hands today, but all too often he was off the mark and had receivers leaving their feet or adjusting backwards to grab the ball from the air.   Thursday- QB Anthony Gordon, Washington State Gordon was better Thursday than he was the prior two practices. He showed better accuracy and decision-making. He was not as hesitant as he was during Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s sessions. Tuesday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan Patterson showed much of the same today that we he showed the past two years- a lot of inconsistency. He made a few nice throws but for the most part was late delivering the ball and was all over the place with his throws.   Wednesday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan It was not a good day for Patterson, as his practice bordered on terrible. He made one terrific pass downfield, which was promptly dropped by Antonio Gandy-Golden, but just about every other throw all day was wide of the mark. Too many times his receivers had almost no chance to catch the ball as Patterson was missing so badly.   Thursday- QB Shea Patterson, Michigan Thursday was hands down Patterson’s best practice of the week. He was much more accurate and decisive, and while he had a few misses, he was mostly on the mark with his throws all day.
    • Mayok had a interview and like ballard stressed DT. When you already have a QB as good as Carr It would be dumb to pass on a guy like Kinlaw.
