Default Pre-season 8/9/2013, Game 1 vs Vikings: Top 5 things you are interested in seeing?

There are a bunch of things I want to see, but If I had to narrow it down to 5 it would be:

1) The LB group. Going to be a lot of young guys playing there and they have a chance to really make a case to be on the team. Merciless has been out, I don't think Reed will play much...No Cushing...No Dobbins...Lots of guys going to get a chance.

2) Hopkins. He'll have Schaub out there with him I think, so he should get some good looks. Dre won't be playing, so he will likely be our top WR.

3) Swearinger. Keo is starting, but Swagg is going to play a lot regardless.

4) Brandon Brooks. I want to see if he can truly be a beast at RG.

5) Our kicking game. I know Lechler is a beast, but I still want to see him kick just for the awe factor. Bullock, I want him to have tough kicks early and often throughout pre-season. I also want to see him get the ball deep into the EZ on kick-offs.


What do you all want to see?

Good list you've got. I'm interested in seeing Qberry and Newton. Newton could take a big step forward in his second year starting (I think he will start, barring injury). Qberry could be big down the road and this year if someone gets hurt.

I want to see if K. Martin has improved as much as has been written.

I want to see how case does, and see how jean looks. The WR competition appears to be one of the better ones and a lot of guys will be playing for a roster spot so i want to see us sling it around to see how these guys look.

I think everyone is coming to the understanding that there never was a true competition for the #2 spot & Kubiak was just blowing smoke.

It is important that both Tj & Case be ready to play on a moments notice. They will be 2 & 2a

I want to watch the UDFA WRs and see if one has potential to knockoff Jean. Jean will be a roster casualty anyway when Posey returns from PUP unless something hinky happens with Bonner

I want to see NO INJURIES (on either side). That`s the biggest thing. Besides that I want to see the rookies and the second year players...

Mitchell has looked great, like seeing Hopkins and LeStar....hoping to see Keenum soon with the 2's and see if all the hype in camp on 610 is legit.

Love how even in pre season Kubes loves the safe plays....fap fap fap

I want to see those things to;
I'm thinking, however, that QMan will see some time at LG (as well as Ben Jones.)

Is Jones going to be our next Center or is he going to compete with Q for the LG spot in the future?

I want to see if Merci has improved his strength enough to hold the edge, and whether he had developed at least one pass rush move.
We're gonna need him to step up.

I think you're gonna have to wait until at least the Miami game to see that, as Mercilus is unlikely to play tomorrow night.

Is Merciless playing?

I was under the impression that he was a no-go? At least that's what I thought I had read....

Mercilus will be lucky to be back to practice next week. Preseason game participation even the following game would be very unwise if you want him healthy for the opener.

Ah well, I forgot about that!

I've read about it, but it slipped my mind.
Well, here's the chance for the youngsters to show what they can do.
