    I kinda expected Sproles and Hester to have good nights... The same goes for Cason and our regulars.

    If I'm giving a game ball to that one player that needed to show the Chargers or some other team that he "belonged" was...

    Punt Returner Mark Jones.

    All three of his returns had everyone on the edge of thier seats. He almost took all three to the house. He also looked very "sure" on another PR that he fair caught.

    On his returns, he made the first guy miss and accelerated quickly. I don't think he finds a spot on our team, but a guy like this, having days like yesterday can only be good for him and his future.

    EDIT... He's a damn 5 year pro.... No practice squad for this guy... But he still may have an opportunity to make another teams squad with days like yesterday. I wont make him give me back the ball, but things make more sense now...

    Sproles was great but we already know his capabilities.
    In preseason, I look at those who's capabilities I don't know.

    Doubtful, unless a team gets really unlucky with injuries.

    jones was pretty dope, BUT my game ball goes to

    jacob hester no doubt. he bulldozed one guy, stiffed some guy to the ground and kept running and on top of that plows into the endzone in the middle of stacked lines.
