Pascal is not playing tonight either. I bet that means we carry six WR.

We will carry 5 WRs like we always do.  We will have one or two 'available' on the practice squad.

Why would he be sitting and not playing then. I guess he could be trade bait.

Tell got beat on the sideline throw but was still in position to make a solid tackle. He's gotta have 4-5 with several of them in open field plus a couple pass breakups including one in the end zone. Cemented his spot if you ask me.

 

E.J. Speed has got to have 10 tackles. He's diagnosed plays quickly, shed blocks and made solid tackles at the line and in space. Far outplayed Adams and Franklin this preseason fo sho! Cemented his spot. 

 

Pascal and Rogers are making the roster purely based off of special teams skills - not because they've outplayed the others.

Adams is good. Speed already had a spot. Franklin, may get cut. 

 

Tell had a spot the minute they traded Hariston.

 

Rodger I agree with you I like Hogan, I think Pascal, is better. Would love Hogan to stick somehow, practice squad?

:D

Yeah, that was not a good half by Kelly

...below his standards...only 13/16 for 138 yds and one running TD. 

He went into the game 41/57 for 445 yds in 1/3, 1/3 and 1/2 games.

We are getting spoiled, people.

Does this kid not know that he can call a fair catch???

He's probably trying too hard.  Trying to make something happen.

 

Well, he IS making something happen, but it's all bad at this point.

we carried 6 several weeks late last year. 

 

"like we always do" regardless means little as we only have a one year sample size with Reich's O.

Penny Hart = JoJo Natson. Talented but jittery.

 

Ironically JoJo is now pretty solid 2 years later for the Rams.

Jojo made multiple big plays in preseason and had some great punt returns with us which earned him the job on the Rams. 

 

Penny Hart has done nothing but muff two punts.

Man Tell is all over the place.  Captain Marvell.  

Yeah.  That kid has a LOT of energy.  Bounced up after that last tackle like it was a 2 minute drill.

Jojo had one really bad game for us and he was gone.  I had high hopes for him to stick.

I think the coaches know what they have in those 3 guys. Might have already decided to keep, cut, or try and trade any of the 3

Is it just me, or does Walker remind you of a gazelle?  He always seems so flighty.

Are you talking about him or the ball he throws, lol.

wow low attendance

Nadine, I also notice that too.  A busy night of local  entertainment  in Cincinnati sports.  Colts are playing the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium, the Reds are playing at the Miami Marlins right now at South Florida, and the University Of Cincinnati Bearcats football team are playing the UCLA Bruins on their campus.  And all three events started at the same time right after 7:00 PM Eastern Time!

 

Not to mention a few high school football games probably being played right now that we are not aware of in the Cincy area.

I'm no QB evaluator, but it looks like he actually has good footwork.

 

Phillips making another case for him to stick.

OK I tried to defend Walker last week with the horrible offensive line play, but no more. He is trash. I thought he was really turning a corner last year, but I'm scared to have him as the backup.

He might have good footwork, but he can't hit the broad side of a barn.

We'll find out after cuts.  I'm not so sure he's safe.  I actually think he's gone.

Nope. They have seen enough. Ballard will sign a vet or a qb cut on Saturday.

But you have to keep him for the two weeks of Kelly's suspension or we'd have no backup QB?

Nah.  We'll find someone on the wire after cuts or we'll sign one of the vets we brought in.

Unless we sign someone in the next 3 days, he'll be here after Saturday. 

Honestly I'm fine with rolling the dice for 2 weeks until CK is back.

I don't think they will bring in someone for 2 weeks that doesn't even know the playbook....I think he's safe. Just my opinion of course.

They brought in Briskett a week before the season started and he ran the show in 2017.  It can be done.

Walker blows sign somebody.

I also noticed the QB for the bengals tonight is the guy we passed on signing for Kelly.

haha...that is very true.

 

It all depends on how management feels about those two games.  If they feel they can "throw" those 2 games then they just roll with Walker.  If they want to stay competitive then they sign someone.  They clearly have the money to blow on a vet for one year.

    • The way I look at it is if the Chargers trade back with us they will receive 13 plus other picks.  They could also take a QB later in the draft like many are clamoring for the Colts to do and he could develop behind Brady.  They would be in a win now mode and would use the new picks to strengthen their team especially their 1st pick. 
    • JB had several problems, and one of them was certainly missing wide open guys. It's been a documented gig on him since college.
    • I'd love a legit short yardage back. You can find those middle rounds, but I'd prefer a FA.
    • You can win with 200 yards or lose with 400. Every QB is going to miss guys wide open. But they may make 5 big plays. Jacobys problem wasn’t him missing wide open guys  he just didn’t make enough big plays so those misses were magnified second half of the season.  He will improve if he starts if everyone stays healthy. Just doesn’t have a high enough ceiling.
    • While chunk plays are important, yards also matter unless you have a top 5 D.... Y/A and ANY/A both have strong correlation to winning... JB is 20th and 28th in those two categories. He was close to last in air yards (29th) as well, and 26th in deep attempts. Also, JB wasn't really hitting big "called" or "scripted" plays early. Many of his longer completions were on broken plays. That's nice and all, but it's not something that can be relied upon consistently.
