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.

    • For me it was between Rock and Turay, and while I think Rock's going to be very very good, I gave Turay the edge (pun intended) based on the flashes he showed before getting hurt. 
    • i would probably trade back( or up to get a QB if it looks like they will be gone), maybe consider lamb   thats pretty early for a DT imo, they would need to be very very good for me to consider a one there.  i would not usually want a guard at 6 either but nelson was worth it, a dt would have to be on that level for me too
    • We'll never know what happened behind the scenes in regards to Luck's retirement.  He may have mentioned it to Irsay or Ballard in March and they told him to "wait on it and see how you feel."   Or, he may have come up with it some time in the summer.  I don't have a problem with the retirement, just when it happened.  It left the organization in a very bad position and if it would have been announced in March, Ballard could have looked into doing something in FA or the draft.  As far as Ballard's philosophy is concerned, I believe in the "build through the draft" philosophy but we have to consider that not all draft picks work out well for most teams, only a small percentage.  If you have holes to fill now, FA is sometimes the only way to go.  Win five years down the road is fine but teams and fans want to win now.  On the other hand, I don't like the idea of signing every FA that hits the market and paying them astronomical salaries.  I would, however, love to see us be a little more active in FA if that's possible.  For example, why not draft a QB and get a FA QB that he can learn from for a year?  A FA DT would help if one isn't available in the draft; waiting until 2021 or 2022 for that great, pass-rushing DT doesn't make any sense when you can get a good one in FA. 
    • Brown, Epenesa, Simmons, Jeudy, Kinlaw, Wirfs, Lamb... Dont care which QBs are drafted... Build that Defense and/or strengthen the Offensive line or Receiving core... No project QBs until round 3. QB in FA...sure.  That QB risk (Lack of production next year(s)) is not worth the draft capital Ballard has built up. If more than one of those guys are available at our pick...Then I’m ok with trading back a couple slots...pick up another 2nd next year.
