Yeah I don't know where the criticism for the dline is coming from. We had two sacks early and davidson was constantly disrupting.

The only disappointing thing I saw with the D-Line was Davis Tull. He looked completely ineffective.

Re: Good bad ugly

luke m. was disappointing, he did'nt play like we've seen him play in pass 2 years, was throwing off back foot when he had time. throwing it up for grabs was ugly, no height on ball to help receiver, was he pissed because he had clean up roll with the 2s and 3s 4s 5s. i have to give nod to grayson except his first play, that was a turable call, anyway. payton loooked teed off because of 20 flags that were bone headed and that can't be coached.

Re: Good bad ugly

Marcus Murphy could be a very special player in the special teams area however those muffs/fumbles have got to stop.

Would really like to see TommyLee back on punts/kick offs next game. This could be his spot to take.

Agreed. Marcus Murphy was already on my bad side for putting the ball on the ground too many times on punts. And last night, he did it again, but the Patriots let him off the hook.

I hope he and Brandon Coleman get cut immediately.

I've come to call Coleman "Mouse," cause he plays like one.

Re: Good bad ugly

Mostly ugly in my view. Bad calls on D and absolutely not much after the first string players.

They have a long way to go to beat 7-9 from last year. At least at this point of preseason.

One announcer put it best: "This team has a one superstar and a few above average players. But, it has a whole lot of average types."

Re: Good bad ugly

Id say we have far more than above average players
Armstead is as good as any LT in the league
They are not at the very top but there are a few just on the edge of that
Cooks,Jordan,Breaux,Ingram,Unger, all sit there
Just behind the like of Vacaro,Snead and hopefully Thomas,Rankins,Fairley


I know not many of you are soccer fans but Leicster City won the premier league last year,over 9 months and 38 games a team with no superstars won a league. good team work,momentum and some self belief can go a long way

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

That GG pick was partly on Coleman, he heard footsteps. For being such a big guy he plays so small. Cooks is more physical than Coleman...

Re: Good bad ugly

You cant be cutting Murphy yet
He had a decent average last year as a return guy.
If he is still doing it game 3 then yeah he is likely out the door. guy deserves time he is only early in career yet

I was thinking the same. Especially when it came to pressure. I thought line did well.
