    Wonder if ESPN will continually cut from the game the way the NFL network did.

    Jeez, Clary looks like he's on skates out there! :cry:

    Let's hope Mathews' minor wound ends up being no big deal.

    And didn't Clipboard Jesus progress at all while in Seattle?!? :eek:

    (oh crap! Did I hit 'Post Reply' too early?)

    No... but would it really surprise you if Clary looked like he was on skates even while only in the middle of warm-ups?

    About 2 separate holds on that return, but hey... who's counting?

    However, that defense makes up for it, big time.

    English just got solo-blocked by a TE...

    I think I may actually hate that pick worse than Busted Davis or even Mouton.

    Well, Dunlap got worked on that 3rd and long, but it was against Peppers.

    I thought so too. But to be fair, these refs haven't called a hold yet this game so it's tough to argue whether they're just "letting them play" or incompetent. I just found it ironic that when they were praising Bushrod during the replay it was obvious he had a fistful of jersey.

    I think we're in trouble if we can't find another pass rusher opposite Freeney, English can't play at this level.

    In Norv's offense that is a guaranteed sack, in this one Rivers at least had a chance.

    And BTW that was Starks, not Dunlap.

    JJ got manhandled on that big run, HUGE holding on Bushrod.

    It's pretty much a position you have to draft. No dependable pass-rusher hits free agency until he's past his prime. And by "dependable" I mean someone who has shown he can produce when he not just in his contract year (Paul Kruger, Calvin Pace). The loneliest exceptions to that were Julius Peppers (who had to cut a deal with Carolina to get his freedom) and Mario Williams (who really was never worth the money he got - he'd never shown he could remain healthy AND produce consistently).

    Like there was no pass interference...

    Sorry, but I dispute that if the defender slips and that causes him to trip a receiver - it may not be "intentional" but it's a foul. They've taken a lot of incidental contact allowance away from DB's that hasn't been to my liking, but this one is too much of a slippery slope.

    Corey Liuget (shoulder) will not return to game. Was scheduled to leave game after first series anyway, team says.

    KA is terrible should have been sprinting on that route. So far this preseason 2 ints have been intended for KA but they have been intercepted
