zero chance Carr beats out Delhomme...Delhomme has got to be injured first.

No injuries on either team thus far. Good to see.

Sure...that's when you see if you can get it done. Why try to trick people in the preseason? You are there to grade out your players and see how they play man up...one on one blocking in a pressure situation.

He may make the team as a special teams guy.

We're still in search of a #2 WR.

And I was hoping that Schaub would get more snaps. Sage knows the offense.

Well, I guess it's way too much to ask for the Carr stuff to be kept in the NFL section, huh?

I think you missed my point...my point was Mario and his lack of burst off the edge was evident regardless of who was in front of him.

Don't know if this has been said already, but If David were starting for us tonight there were several occasions he would have gotten sacked whereas Matt and Sage made plays down field...

Better luck to the No injuries and hopefully playing against another Super Bowl team gives this team a shot of confidence..colts regular season,but I will gladly take a solid game from guys from the 1st roster spot to the last

The search for a #2 receiver may be coming to an end soon. Jacoby Jones looks like a player out there. Just gotta give him a little more time to develop.

I got your point...I made a typo...I meant to say ISN'T vastly different...

I totally agree with you...I thought Mario looked a little sluggish and I personally had to refrain from some chicken little rants....

Babin looks good out there...

I don't think you can say that off of one half of preseason play. I want to see Jacoby go up against a first team defense first.

I hate to interrupt everyone’s happiness, but so far I am still more impressed with Sage that Schwab. Considering the price we paid for him at any rate.

Ok, yall can crucify me now. I’m going for another beer anyway.

I think he takes the #2 from Walter.....

I'm still happy, but I'm sad for you. You need to learn how to spell his name though. I think Sage is better than Schwab too...whomever he is.

Sometimes you can just look at guys and watch how they move and plays that they make....

So far Jacoby has shown me something...
