I was glad to see Wilson playing better and Jordan as well..He was getting double teamed on some plays..

The slogan still stands...WRAP EM UP....i cut them a little slack because of the field conditions..
I agree with this. I was in the Astrodome years ago when the NFL canceled the Oilers game because of a bad seam in the turf and that's what eventually allowed Bud to move the team to Tennesse. So if a turf seam is bad enough to cancel a game, what could be good about dirt to grass that has a 2 inch height difference. No way can I fault Porter in missing that tackle coming off knee surgery and having to play on that field. Same with Colston not coming out of a break to cleanly. That field sucks this time of year and not much better after baseball season is over.

One thing I did NOT learn last night, but realized it a couple of years ago, is that for whatever reason it is, Porter and Greer always look kinda bad in preseason...I cut them some slack, so I am not at all worried about either of them right now, except for the possibility of them being injured at a later date. But Robinson does look very good, just a little raw.

Not impressed with tackling. Not impressed with "overpursuit". Not impressed with LB in coverage. Not impressed with Man coverage that starts 10 yards off the man.

Very impressed with O-line YESTERDAY. Let's see them in a real game.
Very impressed with Bell against their scrubs.
Liked what I saw with Robinson, though he is about halfway there.
Really liked Graham.
A bit disappointed Chase didn't hit those wide open receivers or avoid pressure.

I am happy that we won... lmao.... Offense looked great last night. Daniels kind of took a step back imo, but he's just the back up anyway, so no harm, no foul. Bell looked GREAT, against mostly back ups, but good none the less...... The D-line were getting pressure on passing downs, but when the Raiders went to the ground, it got ugly. They killed us on screen passes all night, and imo, screens should be a specialty of our defense, considering they practice against our offense, and screen passes are one of our biggest assets. Missing Franklin, is going to hurt us, so I'm really hoping he gets back, before we go to Green Bay.

It's like my dad said, pre-season means squat. Nothing..... We won the first half last night, and that's winning a pre-season game to me.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I see very competitive seconds and thirds at most positions. That's healthy but some of the cuts are going to hurt. I'm still on the Shanle stinks bandwagon this year. I just don't get it with his lack-luster play and the front-office fascination with him.

Porter seems apprehensive; holding back. He got a signature pick-6 pass his way early and he committed to the tackle after catch as opposed to the 6. Still love him.

Meachem haters? Where you at. He's a consistent presence.

Graham got off to a slow start but really shined after he got the hit-jitters out of the way.

I thought Swanson Miller may have killed that nameless quarterback until I saw him stir and his chest still rising and falling. Man, that had to hurt.

I'm onboard and feeling better about the LOOMING Sept 8 opener!

Graham is frightening. Chase. I've never seen a QB stand motionless in the pocket. It looks like some glitch on Madden.
