You know what, Angerer played MLB in college and felt natural playing that today.

I thought Angerer looked "natural" too.

I really like the fact that the DL is very active. Its a great sign.

Fili Moala is playing lights out, whether against starters or backups. Just blowing into the backfield on runs or passing. Drake Nevis, as always, is having another monster game. Wow! It is early, but with these guys and the new pickups, this could be the deepest Colt D-Line in the Manning era.

defense holds arguably the best offense in the league to 13 points. thats very impressive. also im loving that our DTs are getting sacks.

Drake Nevis looks like Eric foster on steroids he is the lift weve been screaming for!! Freeney will be having a great time not being double teamed anymore!!!

Oh, Freeney was a monster today!!! The Saints and the Patriots O-lines will be our biggest tests for pass D, and our division rivals for run D.

Something changed, the 1st and 2nd string Ds look faster, and they are playing more like the Tampa Bay Bucs, swarming to the ball, and not just reacting. True Tampa 2, you can call that, and playing it well.

I hope our dt's can keep getting better thru the season and maybe we can hide lacey in the locker before each game and we may have a good d this year

Wow. That onside kick was rough. I really wanted to see our guys win this one. Bonehead penalty was not good at all but then onside kick brought back some bad memories. not to mention it being followed by man on man on the outside with our CB 10 yrds off for a quick 10 yards to get in field goal range..........

That being said, saw some great things tonight. Harris and Sims look like great additions to our D. We held their starters to 10 points in 1st half without Bethea (they were without Jennings tho...) Way to go Painter, showed a lot of improvement tonight. Wayne looked great, Garcon had a few drops but hauled in another great deep ball, and Brooks had a nice TD grab. I also really like Gilreath on PR. He looked good with the ball but knew when to call fair catch.

Kinda of a heart breaking loss but the things I saw from the starters and some backups out weighed that. Very excited to see our team at full strength this year!!

    • Looks like we will get both back Sunday. With all the WR injuries I am excited to watch Campbell the last four games and see what he does. He should get lots of opportunities.    
    • Yeah, most mocks I've seen have Herbert going around 8-10, so if that holds we would have to trade up but Love or Eason should fall to us. It's gonna be interesting to see it play out, see if Ballard gets spooked and trades up, or has the nuts to wait and see if they fall...or even ballsier to wait and see if someone falls to the Redskins 2nd.   Hell, he may not go QB in the 1st, if they don't I'm really hoping they get a guy like Lamb, Higgins, or Shenault, a big bodied X receiver to compliment the speed of TY and Campbell. 
    • LOL. I'm not saying college is comp to NFL. What I am saying is if you're trying to gauge his ability to play vs tougher  or elite competition, Bama's D was tops in college for many of those years. I'm not saying his O in college could compete with NFL teams. I'm saying Bama had some of the best talent in college, and for instance, that would translate into increased pressure, tighter windows, etc....   And HS to College really isn't a good comp either. I played for a HS that won state twice while I was there. I had no delusions of them competing against a college team. I might take LSU or OSU over the Bengals this year though lol.
    • This mischaracterizes the issue in its entirety.  Just because it takes a long time for QBs to find generational talents at QB is not a reason they shouldn't try to get better at the position if the team doesn't have a generational talent at QB.  Bill Belichick has had Brady for the past 20 years and he's still drafted a QB every other year.  In the past 10 years, he's drafted 3 QBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.     It seems as though what you have in mind is teams selling the farm to trade up and take the #1 QB in the class at #1.  There are so many other viable ways ot get franchise QBs better than the one we have.  If we used a 2nd or 3rd on a QB, could it be the next Drew Brees or Russel Wilson?  Maybe.  But even if it's not and he sits a year and then ends up being better than Brissett, that's a win.  We can try again in another year or two.  You should always try to improve your roster and add valuable depth, no matter what the position is.     Yeah, we have a mediocre QB.  We should still be using higher draft capital and perhaps trading up in cases where it makes sense.  
    • At least he would add to the running game.  But still, no thanks. I'll take our chances in the draft.
