Wilson has looked pretty good. Getting rodgers might save his career.

 

That is Wilson's third year. He should be looking a lot better than others. The Jets have a good team. They played very well today in every quarter. They just shut out the Panthers, albeit it is preseason.

Did I hear that CJ Spiller is playing for the Chargers? He seemed to score a TD but it was called back by a flag. I have to check if it was CJ Spiller, the former Buffalo RB.

 

EDIT:  The announcer said CJ Spiller but it is Isaiah Spiller. CJ is a coach now.

Maybe it's his son ?

 

Duggan is in now for the Chargers

It might be. 

 

Bennett is getting first downs with good throws. 3 throws just now, all for first downs.

 

I did not get to see Duggan. 

Wiki says

 

Quote

Spiller wears #28 as a tribute to former NFL running back C.J. Spiller, who played for five teams over eight seasons. The two are not related, but Isaiah would often watch C.J.'s highlights and imagine himself in the NFL.[4]

He's a good looking young lad

It definitely seems that way to me. Coaches and players eager to set the tone earlier on and get some field action immediately. It may risk some injuries but overall I appreciate it! Being proactive!

Maybe a little bit.

 

I think with the reduction of a game, teams are really still trying to figure out the best formula.

 

Personally I think the best formula might be.

Game 1:

Starters play 1st quarter

2's play 2nd + 3rd quarters

3's play 4th quarter

 

Game 2:

Starters play 1st half(Yes this means I think Richardson should play whole 1st half next week)

2's play 3rd quarter

3's play 4th quarter

 

Game 3:

Starters play 1st possession

2's play rest of 1st half

3's play 2nd half(battle for spots)

This is what I am thinking too. If you give them good playing time first 2 games you can give them that 3rd game off or just a few snaps. I really don’t need to see colts starters that 3rd game. Andy Reid had always played his starters a lot in the preseason. 
 

It’s making these preseason games  fun. Can’t wait to see Lance play later.

I would of supported keeping Richardson in the rest of the 1st half yesterday though.

I'm always in favor of playing starters especially rookies and others that do not have a lot of experience. I think they should have let Richardson play more. The Rams and Titans had their drafted rookie QBs play most of the game. It gives them experience. Bryce Young did not play enough.

Lol great stuff

 

Good 1st quarter for Saints

 

I like that Derek Carr is off the Raiders. I'm a big fan of his but it was hard to root for him with McD as his head coach. Carr is such a classy guy.

Carr has always been a QB that is easy to root for. Above average for his career, nothing special but far from bad. Saints could very well win that weak division. Getting away from McDestroyer was the best thing he could've done.

I don't like the Saints but I like Carr. I liked Brees too.

 

Will you watch the Niners game?

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
