Not over-reading, they may want to get a really good look at Walker and Kelly to help see who should be the #3...

Possibly, but Walker is terrible and Kelly deserves some looks....  by next season he will hopefully be the #2, and if he were actually given the chance and some time, he may be as good or better than JB this year.  Preseason is become a joke at seeing the real team you will have in the regular season.  Now even game 3 is turning into what used to be game 4, total waste of season ticket money and attendance will plummet as this becomes the norm.  Sad!  :Cry:

Yeah.  I want to see if the potential translates with starters around him!

Winnepeg. The field is so bad they have to shorten the field and there is no kickoffs lol. That is the main reason the packers decided to sit their starters out.

 

 

That's embarrassing...who the he## picked Winnipeg?

I would like to see Kelly play a lot more.

He has way more natural QB ability than Brissett.

It doesn't matter who Kelly plays with or against, he is better than Brissett.

Apparently Campbell has a stress test Sunday. Let’s hope he passes and gets back to practice. Maybe we will get to see him in the last preseason game.

Sadly, he looks like another one of those brittle Ohio State WRs.
He might be in and out of the lineup for his career...hammy, groin, high ankle, ligaments...etc.

Great news!  He should be our No.2 next year and the best way to guarantee it is to keep him on the active roster when he is eligible.  As I said in another post starting caliber NFL QB's are hard to find and we have three.  I would hate to see him signed off the practice squad.  He would be no 53 and would be inactive every week.  We only dress 46 or 47 so guaranteeing he remains a Colt by putting him there makes a lot of sense to me. 

Actually, we have 2 starting caliber QBs...and Brissett is not one of them.

Brisset will give us a few good games against the weaker teams but will almost never get us a W against the strong teams.

I don’t get the point of not saying if Brissett  will  play against the bears. It’s a pre season game lol.

 

 

I thought it was said he isn't playing.

Well, you are rounding into mid-season form early this year.

Good Job :applause:

    • Making it work through athleticism is an incorrect statement and does a huge disservice to Smith.  Smith is making it work at tackle by working hard and becoming a tackle.  I'm not sure what makes a "true tackle" but to me a guy that plays tackle and plays it very well is as much of a true tackle as anyone else. As far as AC (or AT if you prefer  ) aging... yup, every player on the team is aging so that is not a shock.  But he is still just 30 and tackles often play into their mid to late 30s so that is not much of a concern.  Not to say they won't draft a tackle in the next couple of drafts, but I doubt they will try to find a starting tackle in the next couple of drafts.
    • I didn't watch him much in college, I typically watch Big 10 football but I have watched him closely in the NFL and if the "experts" think he would make a better guard then yes I disagree with them.  While he would be a good guard in a zone blocking scheme like the Colts use, his lack of lower body strength and quick hand punch off the snap would hamper him going against NFL DTs.  Additionally, Smith does better when he has a bit of space to work with before engaging and that would not happen often at RG. Again what "most" people on this board or in general think has no relevance on anything.  It's not unheard of for a tackle to move spots but it is uncommon, it's happening a bit more in the past few years as the skillsets for RT and LT are becoming closer because it's not just the LT that is dealing with the speed rushers, but it's still not preferred among oline coaches and teams.  that is why guys like Haeg are considered valuable assets to a team, he's not a great lineman but he is good and he can switch sides seamlessly and that is rare.
    • Or maybe it's because he didnt claim Brissett "panicked" or act like he knows how good his vision is, and he isnt commenting on his read progressions.....you know things he couldnt possibly know anything about and dont show up on the film anyways.    
    • That was my thoughts.  If he was looking to Pascal first (and I'm sure he was), they had high / low bracket coverage, with low guy moving to Pascal but ready to reverse and cover Mack in the flat if he checks down. Big Q has his guy locked up right in the throwing lane to T.Y. but in position to bat down a pass. JB7 pulls it back here. He looks right (that extra 1/2 second) and both receivers are locked up (and actually one falling down in the end zone).   https://imgur.com/AYob5ov   Then decides to escape.     I think he waited a 1/2 second too long to leave.  He would have caused major issues to the defender covering the under receiver had JB7 escaped first and looked at the his options down field second.  Ryan Kelly just couldn't keep Chris Jones engaged long enough and thus he was on JB7 quickly forcing the throwaway once JB7 escaped the tackle box.   https://imgur.com/eXTWsJG   Maybe Glow is also inhibiting JB7's escape route too.   https://imgur.com/5Zk7Ttw     That was my feeling. I'd rather try again on 3rd down, or end up with 3 points (the end result), rather than turn over the ball and momentum by forcing it to Pascal there and getting a pick.  I'm not debating other times or other items he has to improve (but I'd like to see them on video before I join the criticism), just saw this one differently is all.   I think Reich has to devise and disguise the plays downfield better. And the young WR guys have to learn the plays and improve running the route tree.
    • Draft   23: R1P23 DL JAVON KINLAW SOUTH CAROLINA   35: R2P3 QB JORDAN LOVE UTAH STATE   55: R2P23 OT CALVIN THROCKMORTON OREGON   87: R3P23 LB TROY DYE OREGON   129: R4P23 S J.R. REED GEORGIA   166: R5P22 G NICK HARRIS WASHINGTON   201: R6P23 CB ESSANG BASSEY WAKE FOREST   203: R6P25 WR MICHAEL PITTMAN JR. USC   236: R7P23 CB KINDLE VILDOR GEORGIA SOUTHERN   As far as FA is concerned with our own players -TE: I'm not signing both Ebron and Doyle to big contracts. I'd pick one. Even with Ebron's drops, he still has more yards and TDs with the same amount of targets as Doyle. I'd probably resign Ebron and MAC, and let Doyle go unless he's will to sign a very friendly contract.   -WR: We'll have a decision to make with Funch depending on how well he does when he comes back. Both Pascal and Rogers are FAs, and I'd definitely try to upgrade at least one. Position wise, I think Rogers is more flexible, so I'd likely keep him if any. Really hoping Fountain comes back strong. Love what we were seeing from him.   -DE: Sheard? I just don't know. We need an upgrade at DE. Stinks that Turay is losing time due to injury. Regardless, I think I'd resign Sheard if it's a team friendly deal.
