Somebody I forgot to mention but looked good was Rufus Johnson. He made a couple of nice plays early on. Didn't play very long though.

He was awful, couldn't catch anything and cause a interception
I will let the preseason play out; maybe he can make the practice squad,

Re: Ok the good the bad and the ugly

Cooks, Ingram, Hill, Walker, Griffin (makes a strong case for 2nd spot to let McCown walk), Morstead, Hicks, and 1st half interior O-line were superb.

T. Rooks looked bad, but this Coleman dude was way worse and the turd of the night. Special Teams sucked yet again with coverage, with returns AND allowed a fake punt to go 30-something yards. Coordinator McMahon continues to blow like the solar wind, and just like last year special teams will be our Achilles Heel. Regardless of talent, McMahon continues to prove that his does not have a clue on how to use this talent or do his freakin' job. Graham can go ahead and pack his bags, as far as I'm concerned; give Dimke the job...at least he didn't miss a freakin' 33 yard extra point. Plus Graham has a reputation as someone who is shaky with clutch kicks (see last playoff game). Dimke for hire.

Overall I was pleased with both sides of the ball, but special teams coordinator can go live in a van down by the river. Nothing has changed or improved with those special teams units since last year...or the year before...or the year before...or the year before...

Re: Ok the good the bad and the ugly

Didnt see the game.
Got alot on my mind at the moment and have not paid much attention to whats happening yet. By the sounds of things it look good overall last night but we need a athletic top notch MLB very soon. A Ogletree type who can cover the field side to side?

Stars of the Game

Tyrunn Walker..... Pancake After Garrett Gilbert shook loose of Trevin Wade was UUUAWESOME!!!! Also good break to stop a fourth down

Cooks.... They were as afraid of him as we are waiting to see him in punt coverage....coner kicks most time.... TD catch didn't even look like he struggled.....

Ok......Powell with a sack, Khiri Fortt with a Pressure.... and SJB... at least for a Rookie was in the right area... He will learn to stop those types of plays as he progresses

DUD....Brandon Coleman... I call it nerves... He just wasn't there when the lights came on.... The pass that bounced off of his helmet... I was like please don't let that be #16...... but it was!!! UGHHHH!!!

Re: Ok the good the bad and the ugly

I'm watching again and Ingram is def a bright spot. I do think our 1st string need some work. I realize our passing offense was not up to what we expect but Bree's is hurt I get that. Bradford didn't play either so it was pretty even as far as starters being in but the Rams out played us when most of the starters were in.
I saw some missed blocks (graham) and so
E blown coverage. There is room for improvement. I did see some good coverage on ST, hope that carries into season.

Lelito's 1st game at Center and Grubbs, Evans, Stills, Lorig and Brees out.
We didn't have anything even close to our starters playing in that game.

Read it when I was skimming through a few sites last night. Can't remember what one it was.

Like I said I didn't notice anything myself.
