Seeing a few tweets from people who want Wentz back game one but are having a hard time balancing that with wanting to see Eason play week one. Lol. He had everyone’s attention now it seems.

Don't need to, the sentences state clearly that "Eason could wind up being the starter. No more, no less".  

 

Well, there's clearly an implied expectation here....and "winding up starting" would be either more, or less than said expectation.... The scenario you've framed isn't a Schrodinger's Quarterback.... Eason can't be "neither more or less' to paraphrase you.

I said better than Wentz, so your paraphrase is wrong and the rest of whatever grandiose point you're making is... annoying.

I have no idea what the team would do in the event T.Y's projection that "the sky is the limit" for Eason would materialize. Pro sports are unforgiving, but the upside is becoming evident to some of us. He could wind up being a starter too, now that you mention it. Here, elsewhere? I dunno. I kinda thought I saw it in the college tape just comparing it to Justin Herbert. Good arm. Could be coached up. Got to sit that year so many say is important for unpolished guys. We'll see.

Yes. Media is only allowed in for a few minutes so we won’t get much info.

 

This might also be why we see starters play some in that third game too since we have two weeks before the first game this year.

Are you media?

Yeah I wasn’t impressed with him Sunday but it’s one pre-season game so I am not concerned about him yet.


I won’t say i wasn’t impressed , he’s a matchup nightmare if lined up on a Linebacker. I just want him to secure the ball better. I like what I saw in his limited action.

I don’t disagree with that which is why I was excited when he was drafted and still think he will be really good.  He just didn’t move the needle for me in a big way in his first pre-season game.  No biggie he’s a rookie he will get better.

Since we are talking WR's, my two cents is this:

Pittman

TY

Campbell

Pascal

Patmon

Strachan

 

Practice Squad:

Black

Vaughns

Harris

 

Dulin gets scalped by the Eagles

I like the top 6...... alot.

We also saw some big plays from Harris last year.

Black and Vaughns have made plays vs Carolina.  Some nice ones.

And i get the feeling we fans devalue Dulin MUCH more than the coaches in ST.

Gonna be interesting the next couple games.

Black or Vaughns have to move way up the depth chart and be playing earlier in games to have a chance to make the roster.

Harris is pretty much a poor man’s Campbell.  If Campbell stays healthy Harris didn’t do enough to justify a roster spot based on last year.  I could see him on the PS again incase Campbell gets hurt again.

I think Duhlin in the running for the last WR spot.  I think the top fours are locks, TY, Pascal, Pittman, and Campbell.  I think based on what he’s done so far Strachan has earned a roster spot (that could change)

So it comes down to Duhlin or Patmon for the last spot.  If I had to pick right now today I’d pick Patmon because he’s been healthy.  However, Duhlin is getting healthy and there is still plenty of time for him to beat out Patmon for that last spot.

I just want to win

 

I think that Wentz, even at 80% gives us a better chance over the other 2

Vaughns did some amazing things in college

 

Not sure he breaks the roster this year, as the folks ahead of him are special, but PS will help him craft his trade, until he gets a shot

 

The WR group is coming around to a strength

I don't devalue Dulins special teams play.....I devalue that he was supposed to be Strachan before Strachan......Division II WR that dominated his level but can't get open in the NFL.  Strachan is showing how it is supposed to work.

 

As far as Special teams is concerned, the FO brought in Sean Davis, Shawn Davis, Malik Jefferson, Curtis Bolton that all play teams and Marvell Tell is back and he was a gunner opposite Odum his rookie year too. Plus still have Franklin, Adams, Speed and Glasgow.....

 

Dulin has replacements at WR and on Teams.......he is gone.

Oh and Jordan and the Flu game shouldn't have happened... got it.. 

I think it's important to view the Jordan flu game in 2 aspects:

1. What he was able to do while sick with the flu was nothing short of amazing. It's something that will usually have people curled up miserable on the couch. I can respect what he was able to do given his physical state.

2. It happened at a time when the prevailing mindset for most working people was that going to work while sick was a badge of honor. That despite feeling terrible, you were willing to sacrifice to show up to work and grind. In modern times, showing up to work sick is generally viewed as irresponsible (by any respectable employer), in that you are putting your co-workers in danger of also becoming sick. In Jordan's case, everything went well, but what if multiple teammates came down with the flu due to Jordan playing while sick? Now you have multiple players out, most of which wouldn't be able to do what Jordan did.

 

In Sam's case, with a pandemic ongoing, coming into work sick is nothing short of irresponsible. I would be livid if he showed up, knowing he was ill, and put his teammates at risk for whatever he has. That's how you end up like the Vikings starting camp with their QB room in quarantine and having to bring in outside players just to field an offense.

    • The uniforms we wore when we beat the Bears in SB 41. = White away with blue numbers!
    • At least you didn’t become a Steelers fan ! As far as the throwback, he literally put merchandise in the team shop saying Baltimore Colts ! The ultimate throwback ! To your point that the fans weren’t interested in the Colts, that’s not quite true . Attendance was down because of poor product at the time, but that happens in most cities. As usual, it was an owner versus the city for a better stadium and revenue , and the fans get run over in the process.  As far as acknowledging Baltimore, the point is acknowledging the history correctly as it was at the time. That’s all I’m saying. The fans and the Ravens never abandoned the Baltimore Colts legacy. If the fan base didn’t care, you wouldn’t have the Unitas statue, Baltimore Colts in the Ravens ring of honor, or the Super Bowl 5 trophy here. We also use the old Baltimore Colt fight song , for the Ravens, with slightly different lyrics, and the old Colt marching band is now the fighting Ravens. We’ve had a lot of old Baltimore Colts like Bruce Laird, Tom Matte, and Stan White covering Ravens games on TV and radio. Many of us own a lot of old Colts memorabilia. So the fans do care.  So to us, the Baltimore Colts is our throwback history even though the NFL doesn’t say that.  I get where you are coming from, but to me, it was Baltimore Colts fan, 12 years in the desert, Baltimore Ravens fan. I have a lot of respect for the Indy Colts history post 1984. Good city, good fans, their own unique history.  I’m not against Indy putting together a Baltimore Colts throwback night or uniform, but don’t time travel Deforest Buckner back to 1956 in clumsy promos  ! At least you had Lenny there at the stadium. That was more appropriate. 
    • And you have beaten it to DEATH Twice over, yes you have written enough for a book, and haven't moved the needle one iota.   Frank IS Frank so as long as he is the coach many more needleless books to follow.   It is very unfortunate for you Frank is our coach. We must all be hoping we get even an Average D, so that winning more of these close games can help unload the steam from your offensive guru boiler. Yes we know your not a guru, i just wanted to spark another 500 words for the fun of it.  It is amazing Frank is putting up this many PPG ALREADY with this QB and modest receiving core. What fun it would be if we had 4th-5th year TY.   You wouldn't be saying Squat about the play calling!!!  If Bo thought he knew defense, it would have been 10,000 words complaining about Flus. Flus is developing pass rushers, has a weak set in the d backfield, and is killing it with turnovers. Wait till 22 to see what Ballard does to help our seive of a D.
    • I kept my i on him in pre-season. At guard he was knocking guys back and maintaining contact very well. Had some bully in him. Potential as a center also. Kelly isn't irreplaceable. By a players year 3, thinking Pinter and Fries, they should be prepared for solid starter duty if they ever will be.
