post any overall thoughts on the game here
First team dominated both sides...second team dominated both sides. The Cardinals 3rd stringers are better than ours. The Texans aren't giving Rackers much of a fair chance at all to win the kicking job.
That's about all i have to say.
Ugh .... I have no thoughts right now, just lots of cuss words
Our linebacker depth is awesome. Diles, Sharpton, and Bing were great.
Our first stringers were dominant as were our 2nd stringers.
Really like Dickerson.
Hope Tate isnt hurt too bad.
If this had been a real game we would have won by a wide margin. Not happy about the finish but I want to win every game preseason or not.
Out of the rookies, McMannis and Dickerson make the team for sure. Sharpton makes the team and could contribute very early and maybe compete for the SLB job while Cush is out. Graham and Tate make the team. Bad luck about Tate, but I don't think it's serious. Didn't see Shelley Smith so the jury is still out on him.
Fred Bennett and Trindon Holliday will not survive the first cut.
We probably go into the season with 2 QB's. Liked what I saw from Orlovsky.
The score would have been 42-0 if this was a regular season game.
Relax people, 90% of the players apart of the collapse in this game won't make the team.
I'm not sure I can come up with a whole lot that is different from that. Well, Jacoby Jones seems to want to play. My heart is broke over Tate.
Would have been nice to see Rackers attempt a long one, but I think Kubes wanted to see how Booty handled the pressure. Now we know. I think Kubiak told him, do not take a sack, do not hold onto the ball. Throw it quick. Hah!
I agree and it pisses me off.
Tim Melton is an *****.
Kinda feel like last season - great overall game at the beginning. Then the inability to score TDs in the red zone - then Slaton fumbles. And the team finds a way to lose the game. Just a FG miss by Brown was missing ;-).
But on the other hand: 1st team looked great on offense and defense. Second team was still looking really good... but when the 3d string guys came in our offense and defense just fell apart. But since most of those guys will probably not see the field too often, there`s not too much to be worried about.
Overall pretty good game - I´m glad that Sharpton, Nolan and Dickerson looked good. Holliday looked like a guy desperately fighting for a job and doing bad decisions - I didn`t really see Mitchell, but then again I wasn`t really looking for him. And I hope it`s nothing too serious with Tate.
Disappointed that we lost.
Disappointed that we didn't put more pts on the board when the 1st & 2nd stringers were in there
Disappointed that Slaton still has fumblitis
Disappointed in both backup QBs
Disappointed in the way Holliday returned kickoffs - or rather DIDN'T return kickoffs
Slatons fumbleitis is troubling
Holliday is a KR that is afraid to return kicks. Which means he will soon be unemployed.
Mostly this for me. I think he was thinking too much. After the first return, Coach Joe talked to him and after that he was totally ineffective.
Hoping he shows better next week.
why? i thought they looked great.
a few things I noticed -
- as said earlier, Sharpton looked really good out there. He really impressed me
- Troy Nolan actually made a few good plays, made me feel a lot better about our saftey depth
- Mario Williams seemed like the hip was not bothering him much at all, and he looked good. Nice to see the power move back (plus its always fun to watch Leinart hit the dirt)
- Seemed like Molden made a play or two out there
Did anyone see much of mitchell? I was not paying close attention to him.
oh and bummed that Tate got hurt
I hope it's not too serious
I thought Sharpton looked solid.
I thought Barwin and Mario played well.
Yeah, me too.
