I agree, but technically he is not a rookie.

I'd like to know who call that d.a. play? OC or Kubes imo. I was screaming when I saw it was a pass.

Anyone know why they replaced Newton with Harris during the final drive?

Um.

I hate to point this out. We drafted him LAST year. He was on the 53 and, iirc, dressed for all the games. He played in some jumbo packages, I think.

So, he's not a rook.

And I've said this before and I'll probably say it again, but I think it was Newton's development last year that made them think Winston was expendable.

From the part of the game that I was able to actually watch (everything AFTER Arian's TD), he looked like he did a pretty good job and that's why I was surprised to see him off the field at the end of the game and Harris out there as the RT.

Really didn't hear Von Miller or Elvis Dumervil's name the whole game.

Maybe they're made at Newton over the safety, but Winston would have made the same mistake anyway.

Did not know that. I thought he was effectively a rookie.

He was on the 53 man roster the entire year and active for 14 games. They brought him in for short yardage situations and... I THINK... he played most of the last game of the season.

So he's got some seasoning.

Probably wanted to avoid any more holding calls. I think that had more to do with it than the safety/sack.

Newton played the second half of the Titans game last season.
We scored 10 points in the first half and 12 points in the second half.
We gained 151 yards in the first half and 236 yards in the second.

I think the altitude may have something to do with it (Harris' playing).
I had suggested that Newton might benefit by having another OT giving a breather, so it's not a big deal here.

We should expect a little bump here and there along the road.
