Even if it's preseason, I don't want to see wasted dumb challenges

Haven't seen a replay from the sideline, but the one that they've shown with Lockett's catch looked good

The pass protection looks okay, but there's not a lot of push on run plays. Seattle has something to do with, I'm sure, but I expected a little more per rush.

Cousins is probably done for the game.

That field goal actually felt pretty good.


I don't know how a 25 yard FG can feel good?


I don't know, bigo. Maybe actually making it look easy? Use your imagination.


I suppose if one is totally panicked about our place kicking situation, the only reason I can imagine getting the warm fuzzies about a 25 yard FG that you or i could still kick.

There's NO way I could kick a 25 yarder. Maybe 25 feet, but not yards. I tried to kick a fg with some of my son's football teammates. It was ugly as hell.

Our linebackers struggle to get to the edge - just like last year

Nice tackle by Smith

Now we need to get some pressure on Wilson

Third and goal and we throw short of the end zone........


Preseason. Game situations are different in August.

I'm sure the team would have been more aggressive in the same regular season situation. Today, its get some yards and see our kicker attempt a chip shot FG.

Sorry, but I don't think Bailey needs the practice kicking a 25 yd field goal in preseason. I guess the new snapper and holder do need the work, but I'd still like to see a shot into the end zone.


Bailey needs live reps kicking, period. New LS, new holder? Reps.

First time Wilson faced a little pressure

Paid off with a rush throw

Question.. what is your individual expectation of the team during this game, besides to win and avoid injuries?

Mine is for the team to evaluate the roster at several positions and to practice live situations against a different team.

Hunter might have helped in that accuracy.

Improved run game, and for Kirk to improve his record against teams with a winning record.

He still would have got the rep if we didn't score a TD there. And really a 25 yard FG rep in preseason is no more valuable than a practice field rep. It's pretty much automatic. At least less valuable than your offense taking a shot to score 7. IMO

Evaluate some of these more difficult decisions like WR, backup OL, DL, and even FB
