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?
#2 and 3 for me only. I'm happy football is back, but i'm not gonna lie, i'm probably watching the 1st qtr. of this game and that'll be it for me. This will be my 1st glimpse of Hopkins & i want to see what he looks like...will he look lost or look like he comfy out there. The same for Swearinger.

I'm mainly looking for things that'll tell me if we have a future with these kids or not.

1) LB corps from inside out, top to bottom (minus Cush, of course)

2) DLine depth

3) DB depth

4) Brooks, Newton and remaining Oline depth

5) WRs behind AJ and Hopkins

Yes, I am biased towards defense..always have been

Other than Newton at RT, I will focus on the back up players like
2. Keenum 3. Lestar Jean 4. Q
#5 will be Mays although don't know if he is starting or Sharpton who last I heard was out with injury.

I think I know what we have in Hopkins and Swearinger. Still think it would be cool if the fans all yelled "GRRR!" when he makes a play.

Did not read the thread and I will post the 5 things I will look for then come back to see if others agree:

1) LB corps (OLB's specifically): I don't think Cushing should be playing, so that we can get good looks at Sharpton, Mays and Dobbins in the ILB roles. Who's starting at OLB, Tuggle and Reed? Yikes.

2) RB's not named Tate or Foster.

3) Punt/Kick returns and the coverage teams when punting or kicking off.

4) Is Shiloh Keo really going to start at Safety while Reed is out?

5) Yates vs Keenum.

Injury on the playing field often is caused by the interaction between the athlete’s shoe and the field surface. In a literature review appearing in the relatively recent May 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons , researchers shed light on the evolution of synthetic playing surfaces. The study summarized the existing research on artificial turf and the role of shoe-surface interface in injury, finding that the key to minimizing injuries on natural and artificial playing fields may be to understand the interplay between different types of athletic shoes, specific sports and field surfaces.

It was felt that optimal shoe-playing surface conditions may be level and sport-specific, and that the shoe-playing surface interface is a modifiable risk factor for injury. But they also made it clear that research needed to be continued on this subject.

Determining the shoe-playing surface interface though is complex and challenging as it is influenced by human factors (i.e., the athlete’s body weight, velocity and acceleration, deceleration, loading rate, and angle of the foot and height before contact), shoe factors (i.e., sole type and cleat/stud material of footwear, and number and size of cleats and cleat configuration), type of playing surface, and related environmental factors

The bad news, artificial turf surfaces are linked to more knee and ankle injuries than grass and dirt. The reason is that grass has more give. You hit the artificial surface harder than the real stuff and your foot is more likely to stick on the ground, with more torque on your knee, foot, and ankle. And while artificial surfaces have improved over the years and more closely resemble grass now than ever before, it’s just not the same.

Some interesting conclusions that they could make in the study was:

*Most types of shoes have higher peak torque and rotational stiffness (the rate at which torque is developed under rotation) on artificial turf than on natural turf.

*Sole material and cleat pattern and shape may affect torque. For example, shoes with small cleats (nubs of only millimeters in length) place the lowest amount of pressure on the foot, and may potentially minimize the incidence of foot stress fractures, ankle and knee injuries on artificial surfaces.

*Because of constant changes in both the athletic shoe market and artificial surfaces, much of the existing research on the shoe-playing surface is outdated.

The role of the shoe surface interface in the development of lower extremity injuries continues to be clarified, but is far from clear. In spite of not having all the answers, there is strong evidence though that the shoe-playing surface interface is a modifiable risk factor for injury and further research is needed to improve playing conditions for all of our players.

It is very obvious that teams need to be much more focused on trying to discover which type of foot wear will fit the bill for each individual player on the team for each surface and the conditions they are scheduled to be playing on.............no longer can they take the more lackadaisical approach that most teams have taken most of the time........."one size fits all" for the entire team.

EDIT: BTW, "slippery soles" is not what you would want, in that you would not only encourage "stretch" injuries, you would create an environment which would result in the same joint injuries that you were trying to avoid.........but incurring them by a different mechanism.

I want to see if K. Martin has improved as much as has been written.
Quiz is the only thing I'm worried about right now. I want to see how good he really is. If we're just hearing coach speak about a guy we needed to play due to injury, I'm going to be very disappointed.

I'm expecting to see a man among boys. If he proves to be that, then I'll have some confidence in Wade Smith if he remains at the LG position. But if Quiz is out there flop'n on the ground like a fish out of water.... it's a bad omen guys, bad omen. & no amount of bad assery at WR/RB is going to help us with the QB we have behind center.

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

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

i think it's all been covered, but the young guys that are expected (hoping) to make an impact.

wide receiver - hopkins and martin especially. looking for confidence and decisiveness. if these guys can play it changes our offense dramatically.
offensive line - looking at Q and brooks. i'm hoping Q shows enough flashes to feel he can replace smith next season. brooks i want to see a much firmer grasp of the playbook. i dont worry about him physically, but any time i watched brooks last year he appeared lost and trying to catch up to the play.
keenum - i think he has the head and the arm to be a really good player, but i'm hoping to see the calm and command and leadership required to be a starter.
outside linebackers - we sucked here last season, and now have 5 new players (including merci) trying to be the sack master for wade's pressure happy defense. one of these guys is going to be a very wealthy guy, but which one?
swearinger - all of the talk is this guy is a vet already, but we heard that last year with martin who very much was NOT ready. i want to see control and conviction. wrap up tackles, not missing assignments, finishing plays - the things that come with being a pro, not a missile.

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

Things I want to see tomorrow night:

1. NO INJURIES, this is self explanatory and we've already got to many folks dinged up.

2. WR CORPS, I'm very much looking forward to seeing what Hopkins brings to the team, and also very eager to see if Martin has improved. Jean also needs to step up and soon or there might be a pink slip in his future very soon.

3. O-LINE, I want to see Brooks and Jones improve, and see what Queesenberry brings to the team. I want to see a cohesive unit that plays well together.

4. SWEARINGER, I hope he steps up big but honestly just want to see him begin to learn. I've got high hopes for him.

5. D-LINE, no injuries cause I think we're thin here but I want to see if Mitchell can hold down starter duties at NT and if Muir can provide some meaningful minutes. If these guys play well it takes alot of pressure off our thin LB Corps.
