Three Thoughts on Second Preseason Game

| August 18th, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 1.01.41 PM

Yes, tonight’s “game” between the Bears and Patriots is meaningless. But there’s things to watch.

  • Here’s hoping the Bears offense scores a touchdown early. To instill confidence? No. To show improvement? Absolutely not. To shut up the Sky is Falling crowd? Yep. A touchdown drive early would force all of them to admit their week of whining was silly.
  • The Daniel Braverman Boner has elevated this summer but the Bears’ quarterback is singing praise of Marc Mariani. With Eddie Royal struggling to get on the field, Marquess Wilson never on the field and the team being very cautious with Jeffery and White, don’t be surprised if Cutler looks to throw a few extra balls Mariani’s way to ensure he’s part of this offensive core in 2016.
  • The night is still only about health, especially along the thin offensive line.

    First to say the Bears Quarterback is only praising Mariani in order to hide his true feelings towards the future HOFer Braverman. Quarterbacks are known to do this, just look at Rodgers using Munn to hide his homosexual tendancies. NTTAWWT

      Dude. How insanely amazing would it be if it came out that rodgers and Nelson were bfs. I would fucking laugh my ass off for days.

      Not that I give a shit about who else fucks who or what, but it would destroy all those backwards hillbillies up there.

      Can you imagine the sheer tonage of fathead waste the next morning up in wiscaaaaaaahhhhhnsiiiin?!

      • Big Mike

        That’s my boy. It’s all about our entertainment. Please don’t take this next sentence as political commentary.. but the prospect of Bill Clinton as the first lady is just fucking hilarious. Does he get interns? Does his suit go into the smithsonian.. Does he check out the oval and fantasize about cigars? I don’t know. But I want to find out. Hillary.. whatever.

        • MB30SD

          can he run the country instead and let her just sit in a room crushing the balls of young republican men one after the next?

          • GP portrayed by Eric Roberts
          • Big Mike

            She’ll be a better president, then she is a campaigner. On the campaign trail all democratic candidates bend over backwards to appeal to every minority group gays, blacks, puerto-rican, mexican and poor people, White dudes shhh. Then when it gets real, they get back towards the middle. Bill Clinton did it, Obama did it, and so on. Her whole persona however makes it tougher to digest. If the republicans can ditch the tea baggers and find a socially moderate candidate, they have a great shot in 2020.

          • bernie didn’t do that. he didn’t win, and maybe that’s part of the reason why, but he didn’t do that.

          • Big Mike

            He would have moved to the middle from his progessive view points eventually. But you hit the nail on the head. He didn’t win. Campaigns have to try to find a way to win. At the presidential level, that means morphing to appeal to the widest possible number of voters that earn you the delegate count, or electoral college votes needed to win.

          • would he have moved? i don’t know. he’s had these positions for decades. i find it hard to believe he’d turn his back on them after finally getting a chance to put them in the spotlight.

          • Big Mike

            Its one thing to be the eccentric Senator from Vermont. Being President of they United States of America is quite a different challenge. Compromise, decisions that have global life and death impact (and where all options will be painful to some group) are part of the presidency. I respect Bernie Sanders a great deal. But in the end he would have moved to the middle, or he’d be just as guilty of obstructionism as the Republican Congress has been.

          • Bender McLugh

            although Bernie has a track record of getting things done even with his stance being so far left, so I’m not convinced he would have been just as obstructive as the current congress.

          • Big Mike

            Speculation, but the drift towards center for every elected president is a documented occurrence. It only follows suit, based on winning the election and appealing to the broadest base. Bernie would need to compromise, to implement any of his programs. If he didn’t he’d get nothing done. So maybe not obstructionist, but the result is the same. No progress. .

          • Bender McLugh

            agree until the last two sentences, but it’s all speculation like you said. let’s drink.

          • Irish Sweetness

            .. or not!

          • It’s true, Bernie would HAVE to go center more. HOWEVER, usually every winning candidate has 1 MAJOR program or two that they see as their spoils.

            Obama had healthcare.

            Bernie would’ve likely had education

            Trump has his wall

            Hillary has her bank account.

          • Big Mike

            That last comment is funny, but misrepresents the reality of it. She gave speeches and made a bunch of money. So what. The real issue with her, is what does she stand for other than winning the presidency. She’s as likely to have her key program be education, as international trade, or infrastructure. In my view, it will be whatever is the hot topic and will play well in 2020. That’s her achilles heel.

          • I don’t think Hillary will be horrible. TBH, I think she’s too entrenched with big $ to fuck anything up. If you’re a “conservative” and want to conserve the status quo, she’s your man.

            She’ll tread water, an extension of Obama. However, she’s much more of a Hawk (maybe cuz of the $$$ connections); As Nader said, she hasn’t seen a war she hasn’t liked yet – so I can easily see us getting into some more needless wars cuz of her just so she can prove she’s macho.

            So again, if you’re a conservative and jones for war, she’s your man.

            She won’t be generational merely cuz she has a vag.

            And in fact, she might hurt dems next election cuz Rep going to be searching high and low for a real candidate, and not an orange clown.

            Republicans are kinda stupid with their anti-immigration stand. G.W. Bush was seen in the Latino community as moderate when it came to that, and both Bush SR and Reagan were trying to “out immigrant” each other

            They all became presidents. Coincidence? The latinos are the biggest growing demographic in the U.S. (much to the chagrin of Trumpers) and contratrary to popular belief, a lot of them are kinda conservative (catholic. family values. hard working, etc).

            If the Reps really want to gain back power, they’d find a charismatic moderate latino (something along the lines of Rubio). Mark my words, when this happens, they’ll change the political landscape forever.

          • Big Mike

            My opinion is that Hillary surprise you. She’s got her money, She’s fulfilled her life destiny. She’ll have put her network of sycophants to work (like all presidents). Maybe this is all about getting even with Bill and banging an intern. She’ll have a moderate to left of center senior staff. I think she’s learned quite a few lessons watching Obama. She’ll reach across the aisle to the dismay of the whining class. At her core she’s socially liberal, can handle herself on the international scene and I think is not as much of a Hawk as you think.

            Her legacy will likely be determined by avoiding an economic downturn (no small feat given the length of the recent cycle of expansion), her handling of whatever international crisis comes her way and what sort of coat tails she has in helping to shift congress and the senate. If the Dems get closer or even take back control, she’ll have quite a bit more juice. While this is more attributable to Trump, she’ll be the benefactor.

            Bottom line she won’t fuck it up and with the right circumstances might be a solid 2 term president. People will get over their raging hatred of her.

          • Big Mike

            Also, Nader’s a pain in the ass.

          • A lot of republicans may not agree with him, but they feel Bernie’s sincere (unlike crooked Hillary) and can be worked with. Trust is usually a good start to any negotiation.

            It was interesting what a southern Republican said of Bernie when asked about his surprisingly popularity.

            To paraphrase, He said, “People think Bernie might be a radical in the south, but he’s nothing new. Our grandparents loved FDR, a president that created social security, fought for unions and the working class during the great depression. Bernie would be seen in the same mold, even if they disagree with his policies”

          • apologies. i thought you meant he would’ve changed his positions after he won the nomination.

            yes, as president, we would have had to make compromises. but his starting positions for everything would be the left, progressive positions that tinge the taints of more than a couple regulars here.

          • Big Mike

            I think after being nominated Sanders would have needed to convince guys like me to vote for him. His tax plan would have taken a huge chunk out of my wallet. Like 25k a year. Which in turn would be lead me towards cost cutting at companies I own. Might not cost jobs, but would slow growth. Eventually he’d have my vote..But probably not campaign donations.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            He is just as out of touch as the craze balls on the right. He and Hilary have the fucking audacity to talk about college for everyone when we can’t even graduate a decent percentage from highschool and we simply pass along gradeschool kids without having them know fucking math, science, writing or reading.
            We’re losing an entire segment of the population but let’s raise fucking taxes so everyone can get a liberal arts degree. give me a fucking break Bernie. So glad that side show is fucking over.

          • Sactowns#1

            Yeah. An educated society is stupid. Taxes!!!

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            it’s a fucking joke Sac. If you think college for all is a solution to anything you’re not being honest about this country. You’re talking about College for everyone on the backs of the middle class when kids in our cities can’t read in 8th grade. Get your priorities straight and stop sniffing Bernie’s crotch. College for all doesn’t mean shit, it’s just a bullshit lefty talking point.

          • Irish Sweetness

            An educated society is not important?

            When America was trying to go to the moon, the educational system was geared up to provide smart people and was the best in the world. That changed. America doesn’t produce anything anymore. When you decide to spend 10-30 times the education budget on the military, people get dumb real quick. Just look at the youth today compared to the sixties. If you want o pull outrageous shit on your population, keep them dumb. Keep them swiping left.

          • BearDown100393

            Define “educated” these days.

          • CanadaBear

            True enough but I’m pretty sure there might be some room to trim the military and security budget (by like a zillion dollars).

          • Big Mike

            My plan would be to reallocate military spending to infrastructure building. It’s politically practical, replaces the jobs lost by cutting the military and effectively transfers our nation building exercises on the USA instead of somewhere else. Reallocating a Trillion Dollars, would be a practical start. Even if the same fucked up contractors just retooled and began doing work here, that’s better than building roads in some medieval country.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            I’d be ok with any common sense trimming if they could promise to utilize the money saved for real purposes….and therein lies the issue.
            promised I wouldn’t get political, I just feel it’s disingenuous when the crazies on the right get all of the heat when the crazies on the left deserve their fair share.

          • I have zero issue with a president raising taxes on Wall St. speculators (who are gambling with their clients’ money – reaping rewards without assuming any risks) to fund free college.

            you’re correct in that college does nothing to change the problems with lower levels of education, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to say you shouldn’t have to assume crippling debt if you do want to pursue higher education.

            i’d like to hear your education solution. does it involve slashing spending on schools? lowering teacher salaries/pensions because they’re clearly being overcompensated? please tell me you support the brownback model. please.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            that’s not Bernie’s plan at all. Bernie’s plan attacked many more people than Wall St. speculators. Bernie’s plan attacked retirement plans. It attacked wages and capital gains and fucking saving. Designed to be the great equalizer. It was dismissed by policy experts because it was not feasible nor was it sound.

            I’m talking about the lunacy of focusing on free college while our country fucking rots from the foundation. Coming up with taxation plans to address that subject instead of lower level education, health care, etc. That is what I have an issue with.

            Pensions are a completely different story and could be their own blog. Being from IL we are well aware of what the current pension models are doing to our state.

            What is the Brownback model?

          • Being in education I can tell you now that K-12 is a MUCH harder issue which no one has any real solution to cuz the problems are multiple.

            No matter what, there’s gonna be “lost students” who flunk out for various reason.

            But what needs to happen IMO is pretty simple.

            1. Teachers need to get paid more.

            This will hopefully inspire others to teach as opposed to come up with Viagra slogans.

            2. Need to hire A LOT more teachers.

            Can’t have 1 teacher with 40 students in one class. Some think teachers have it easy. Well, let’s say you’re a teacher with 40 students and you teach 5 classes and you have to grade a 3 page essay. You’re essentially grinding through 600 pages of very horrible writing. That’s too much. And still need time to do other things. It’s proven more teachers with less students works.

            3. Needless to say, need to hire MOTIVATED teachers, but that’s a luxury at this point. Need more first before we get picky.

            4. More schools/classes/resources

            But we somehow need to fund higher pay, more teachers, classes, and for some odd reason I can’t explain, our society doesn’t want to do it.

            I guess they like living in the highest incarcerated “civilization” on the planet.

            My solution would simply be to slash some of the military and directly put it to higher pay, more teachers and classes first. The investment would mature 20 years later or so.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Pay us more, but in America especially, allow teachers to be fired. I’ve watched a few documentaries on education in America and I couldn’t believe it when I saw rooms full of teachers sitting around reading the paper all day. Teachers that are so bad, they are held apart from the schools and they go to ‘work’ every day, get paid, but they don’t teach. They’re not allowed to teach because they are so bad/problematic. Because they’re unionized they can’t be fired. Huge waste of money. Pay good teachers more, sack the bad/terrible ones.

            Neither is being done.

          • Sactowns#1

            Taxes are now “attacks”. Got it.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            the further taxing of retirement plans and the attempted saving of money is fucking retarded which I know you agree with…especially when it’s to fund idiotic and inappropriate ideas that aren’t addressing the real needs of the country.

            The only reason that one could possibly be against making it advantageous for ALL americans to try to save and invest would be to reduce the possibility that families saving money be able to pass down actual security and money to future generations. And we all know why someone would be opposed to that now don’t we Sac?

            No one in their right mind can be on board with taxing retirement assets and capital gains in the way that Sanders wanted to. It makes no sense whatsoever and HURTS americans.

          • the college would’ve come from wall st. there were other taxes all around, yes, but those same policy experts who dismissed it said the majority of people would’ve ended up saving money on the whole because of the things those taxes would’ve paid for that they’d no longer have to worry about.

            brownback model is the tea party model that’s been a failure in kansas. massive tax cuts across the board, then when shit starts going to shit, start cutting education/infrastructure funding and start blaming the teachers for getting too much money as the reason the state can’t pay for anything. because it can’t be the tax cuts. that definitely has nothing to do with a lack of money coming in.

          • Irish Sweetness

            They should tax the shit off investors. If you have enough money to sit around speculating on pork bellies or technology, you should pay your fair whack.
            Any argument to say “we can’t dis-encourage people to invest” … you’re not. You’re just making them cough up. Tax the rich, not the poor. Makes no sense to do it the other way around.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Bernie sold out.

            He took whatever Clinton offered him to not lead his followers in a complete revolt after it was confirmed the nomination was rigged from the get-go and Hilary punctuated it all by hiring the disgraced DNC Chair hours after she was forced to resign.

            The unhappy Sanders’ folk made quite a stink anyway.

            Can you imagine what it would have looked like if Bernie had stood his ground and LED the protests?

          • Hillary “hired” her the same as Obama hired Eva Longoria to run his campaign in 2012. Both were named honorary co-chairs, a position that holds no power and gets no pay.

            Saying “he took whatever Clinton offered him” is doing a disservice to the things he fought for. She didn’t just happily agree to include $15/hour, free state college for families making under $125k, and public option healthcare because she all of a sudden agreed with him. He twisted her arm and made those things happen. He didn’t get all of his demands met, but that’s to be expected in political compromises.

            Sanders said early on he would do everything within his power to ensure your boy Donald didn’t get elected. Leading protests against your girl Hillary would not have been in line with that. Instead, he’s doing the best that he can – forcing her to adopt his positions to get his support, and then starting a new progressive organization to start getting like-minded people into office at all levels of government across the country. That’s how his revolution will be successful – not with one single man, but by changing the make-up of legislative offices everywhere.

          • Bender McLugh

            Preach it!

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            I love how Donald and Hillary are both Al’s “boy” and “girl” respectively.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Nice rationale for Bernie’s sellout. He got a nice new house for his troubles, too.

          • The 600K one? who bought it for him?

            Like I said. My brother in law just inherited two 750K houses in a lower-middle class neighborhood.

            He’s a special ed teacher.

            You seriously believe Bernie went through all that saying,” I’m gonna cash in and get a 3 bedroom house!”

            C’mon, Al,

            You can’t REALLY believe that.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Sorry, I really believe that Bernie sold out and when Hilary gets elected, he’ll become a footnote because once she gets what she wants she’ll toss him aside like a used tampon.

          • Of course Bernie will become irrelevant, just like most of the GOP losers. Trump himself will become a VH1 20 second blip.

            But to say he sold out for 600K is ridicules.

            His political pull could get him private jets, but he settles for southwest?

            I don’t really buy it. If you show me that he got a bunch of stock options, free vacations at 4star hotels and cushy cars from the powers that be, then maybe I’ll believe.

            Bernie didn’t sell out. He just lost cuz the machine predetermined it since Mr. Clinton won his first term.

          • AlbertInTucson

            If it pleases you to think he didn’t sell out, fine.

            To me, it’s pretty obvious that he did.

          • yeah. they spent 600k on a beach house. after they sold his wife’s inherited family house in maine for around 500k. the largesse just makes me sick.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Don’t they ultimately have to pay the piper? Doesn’t the Prez eventually toe the line? JFK was the benchmark for not doing that.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            because his fiscal policies were ludicrous. 1960’s conspiracy theory ludicrous.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I sincerely hope that’s the case.

      • CanadaBear

        Completely agree. I really don’t give a damn who’s sleeping with whom. It would be hilarious to watch those hillbillies walk back their homophobia. You’d hear backup alarms all over Wisconsin.

  • My 3 things for tonight:

    1) No injuries. Most important thing out of every preseason game.

    2) Can the OL not suck? That would be nice to see.

    3) With Fuller (and possibly Callahan) out, some young CBs will get a chance to impress and stake their claim for PT. Will be interesting to see how they perform against actual NFL competition.

    • You’re about to get Jericho’d

      I want to order my Bausby jersey tonight after the game. Make it happen.

      • Bender McLugh

  • You’re about to get Jericho’d

    I want Jefferey and White in for 2 series at the most and i want them each to have one solid catch then fucking sit them. They’ve been dominating the Pats secondary all week. We already know they’re good, no reason to risk it.

    ….and plan for the blitz goddamnit.

    • Big Mike

      I think we should clarify. It shouldn’t be about the number of series, but the number of plays. 1 long 10-15 play drive. Boom, they’re done. If it’s three and outs, they stay until they move the chains.

      • You’re about to get Jericho’d

        I think they’re playing the whole half. That’s the word on the street. I don’t know if I agree with it but it’s time to fucking dance.

        • Big Mike

          The more you worry about getting hurt, the more you get hurt. The only guy who gets to sit if it’s a shit storm is Cutler.

    • willbest

      White needs more time than that. He has 12 NFL snaps in his life, only 6 weren’t runs up the gut, and only 1 was to him.

      “A Blackmon stole my radio” – i had Justin Blackmon on the team.

      • MB30SD

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          I am assuming you are referring to the Blackmon team name. It is a little racist so I cleared it with the black guys in my league. They thought it was hilarious.

            We could have Jimmy instead of Ego Ferguson…. just let that sink in when you watch tonight’s game.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            well, then all we can truly hope for is that Ego plays and hurts Jimmy. The natural order of things.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            by that train of thought we could have had could have had Brady for the last 15-16 years too. let that sink in when you watch the game tonight.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            Brady never would have survived 2010-2013 on the Bears.

          • MB30SD

            hahahaha

          • I am curious about Jimmy. He looked good as a college prospect.
            But can never tell with QBs. Everyone thought RG3 was the 2nd coming, and it ended up being the 4rth rder Cousin was better.

      Strip club/Massage Parlor/Brothel adventures make many men concoct epic stories….just not a lot of them are then told to the world’s stage.

  • Is Gen CornWash gonna play?

    I kinda wanna see him play, but maybe we should treat him like Miller. Wrap him up in plastic bubble till the season starts (on the other hand, mofu has to show he won’t break 2-3 times a game like fucking Conte).

    Wanted to see more of Callahan, but if he’s not playing, looking forward to some Hall, Houston and BUSSSHH.

    Who the heck is our other S from Amos anyways?

    Would like to see Young be dominate again, then be taken off the field really quick. From late last season, I think the Fisherman’s light has turned on.

    Sadly, Braverman looked like he ran a 4.7. Too many Angus steaks.

    Mariani won’t run it back, but like I said before. He’s a condom. Good to have just in case.

    Bellamy and Carey just always do enough to stick. Wanna see some more of them.

    Thompson shows some oomph in return, but don’t know why they don’t try him at PR. Fuck it, why not? It’s the PS. They’ll be punting in the 4rth.

    Has Brauckener even played? Maybe seeing Gronk inspired him.

    New shot game. Every time Floyd does that useless spin move, take a shot!

    I want to see Whitehair at C again too. Again, it’s the PS. Fuck it. It’s much easier to pick up a LG than a C who needs to be on team from PS.

    Will we fucking see a NEW P? We need one.
    Just saw Trestway pin it on the 1, and a jeff-shaped tear formed on the corner of my eye.

    I know it’s only PS, but I would like our middle to shore up. Broncs were gashing us up the middle, our supposed strength.

    And stop the fucking crossing routes for crying out loud.

    That is all…

  • You’re about to get Jericho’d

    Rumor mill saying that Bears in the market to trade for a vet Center. Wonder what it would cost? Probably an OLB I’d imagine. If that happens Pace is on my naughty list.

    • Maybe POX can trade a 2nd rder for Slauson.

      That would be so Bears.

      • You’re about to get Jericho’d

        any team that gets a call about a vet Center at this point can pretty much ask for anything in return.

      Did you see this somewhere?

      • You’re about to get Jericho’d

        Jahns tweet

  • Wow. The TE I really wanted to complement Miller (or vice versa). Crazy.

    ESPN Steelers reporter Jeremy Fowler believes Ladarius Green (ankle, headaches, active/PUP) could be headed to injured reserve.

    That would be an odd decision considering the Steelers could just stash him on the reserve/PUP to start the season, but the overall takeaway is Green remains highly questionable for Week 1. – Roto .

  • You’re about to get Jericho’d

    Nice drive, chains moved, penalties kill. Good start, thought langford would bust outside a few times

  • Nice opening drive by Bears.

    Langford made a nice catch. Moeki (who looks more like a FB). Good protection. The announcer was citing “miscommunication” and Wade Phillips sending more than 4 rushers last week as the main culprit for the sacks.

    Also mentioned Larsen is more comfortable now communicating.

    Mariani is like a po man’s Edlemen. Alshon and Cutty could still make sweet music. That sideline hit to Alshon is unstoppable if they’re both on their game.

    White made a nice comeback. He was sorta falling/sliding and still made the catch knowing exactly where the 1st down mark was. That catch is harder than it looks. Shows great body control, hands and awareness.

    Nice opening drive to get some of the stank off last game.

  • Jack Lacan

    Bears seem out of the Championship League and into the Premiership. Somewhat.
    At least when I tuned in this time Cutler was not being swarmed by defense.

  • Mariani returns punts like I would.

    Its game day and everyone is being reasonable. Let’s see if i can get this right.

      with injuries he might make the team.

  • That zone stretch run might cause some damage. Langford showing nice vision, burst and hands.

    If that gets going, Cutty can go to work on bootlegs and those slip screens to White and gang.

    On that 33 yd run, Alshon practically rode his man out 20 yds down field.

      Like I said before, he’s a baller when it matters.

      In that Thanksgiving game he had like 4 passes defended and an INT.

      He’s inconsistent, but at least makes plays.

  • Freeman’s pass coverage is beginning to worry me.

    That’s the 3rd time a guy ran a drag route right in front of him. He’s there, just a step too slow (shades of Shea).

    • You’re about to get Jericho’d

      3 brutal first downs already in preseason given up by him. Targeted like Shae

      • Yup. I’m sure opponents are noticing too.

        Don’t know how Freeman can stop it. He just doesn’t seem fast enough.

        I guess we can “hide” him through pressure or disguises, but Freeman looks like a liability one-on-one in pass coverage.

        That being said, not many LBs can cover sideline to sideline. Just tired of that shit over and over again.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          still better than any thing we had out there last year.

    • Johnnywad

      Don’t ever say that again.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Nice INT last week though.

      • Off a tipped pass. Not like he jumped a route.

        I didn’t see much of him in Indy. Maybe that’s why they let him go.

        We’ll see. Either way, hard to imagine he’s worse than Shea in the other areas.

  • madscout12

    What a play, TP.

  • madscout12

    Jock jizz sighting.

    Maybe fangio will jam the tightends a little in the regular season. It works…..said every coach at every level ever.

    • A pass rush would help too.

      Once again, the dreaded crossing route. All teams gotta do is run crossing routes all day on us. That’s why the Pats always carve us up, and they don’t even have Edlemen or Gronk in, the kings of crossing routes.

      Oh well. These are the scrubs right now anyways.

      I was keeping an eye on Acho, and he’s getting stonewalled more than I’d like.

        I guarantee you that you logged on to the feed after our O drove up and down the field twice and dominated before cutty was taken out.
        Also it was their first team Of against our 2ND TEAM D pretty much the entire game.

        • SC Dave

          Their first team offense was not in a single play, since Brady was never on the field.

          But yes, I missed the first quarter. Since then, the Patriots have completely dominated this game in all respects.

          • You’re about to get Jericho’d

            Of course you missed the domination.

          • SC Dave

            I know… bummer.

            I want to see what White and Langford can do.

          • Brady’s gonna be out 4 games, so for 4 games, that WILL be their 1st team O.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Yeah, came in at the end of Cutty. I think Hoyer got the ball and gave it straight back.

      • Irish Sweetness

        I missed an hour, but I saw the goal-line stand and the run-defense looked good on the plays I saw. Floyd looks good. Cutty did the job and is healthy on the sideline. All good for week 3.

    Finally. TFW.

    He certainly can get penetration but he whiffed on two tackles on the same play. Looks like a load to handle though.

    No Dreamboat Fales? Isn’t he better than Hoyer/Shaw? Or do they know that and they’re just letting Hoyer and Shaw compete for a spot?

  • beninnorcal

    Is Hoyer really any better than Fales or Shaw? I’m sure he costed more.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Sucks for me. Easily take Shaw and Fales into the season. I’d cut him.

    • willbest

      He certainly has seen more defensive looks and dealt with tougher competition than the other two.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Wow, that Shaw has really shown his legs these last two weeks. He doesn’t hang around in the pocket, he scoots.

    • That’s exactly what I was thinking. Perhaps he’s a lil TOO quick to run, but Shaw the Scooter gets those 1sts!

      And you just see Cutty and Hoyer laughing on the sideline reminiscing about when they ran a days of yore but no longer want to get decapitated.

      Shaw did a lot of that at (the original) USC. He was up and down; sometimes he looked really good, and other times, not so much.

      But based on what I saw in the 2nd and 3rd quarters last night, he *has* to be better than Hoyer.

    No bad catches, but that TD was not a pretty catch. Catch with your hands, son.

    I think we can all agree. Brock Osweiler is fucking dead.

    • RenoBear

      Yep. Beautiful beautiful beautiful SPEED on defense! Speed covers up a lot of growing pains on defense.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Yes. And Chicago will probably be dogs against Houston and regardless of how we are playing, without JJ Watt on their side, they’re getting clipped. We’ll shut down the O, and surely Cutty can get something out of their defense sans JJ. 2/1 …5/2 I reckon.
