    d looking meh…..

    I spoke too soon. Williams going 77yds.

    • RIP illa

      Of course. What did u expect :-)

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        nawh, really want shady, foles, ertz, mathis and peters standing on sidelines healthy.

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    that’s a cheatin pick-6!

    • anon

      Bradley who??? That’s too bad i wanted to see the offense :)

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      That was the slowest pick 6 ever

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        6 is 6…i’m not picky

        • Javi Echie

          Agreed I’ll take that anytime.

        • Will, Always Shady in CA

          Very true! Its just not comforting to see our starting CB “lumber” down the sideline.

          • RIP illa

            Not sure what you’re talking bout or what the problem is/was??? We all know that we don’t have speed in our secondary…as far as starters are concerned.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            c-wills didnt dance like deion…bum

          • RIP illa

            Lol.

  • RIP illa

    Read it all the way. Bad job by the TE, great read by C-Will.

  • anon

    Seriously, that off coverage,the D allows a first down on basically every pass play.

    • RIP illa

      Yup. They had Cary pressing one time while Fletch was playing off. Frustrating to watch Davis’s mind (D-scheme) at work.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      if it’s end in an int, it’s baiting

  • Adam

    Is Brady’s night over?

  • Javi Echie

    Does anyone still suggest that Nolan Carroll start over Williams instead of over Fletcher who has been borderline terrible…. Not saying that pick 6 vindicates anything but he’s been the better CB all off season

  • RIP illa

    Fun question. Why is Square ahead of Allen? He’s so horrible. No push whatsoever, slow to fire off the ball, slow in pursuit and rush, and can’t get off the block. SMH!!!

    • Javi Echie

      I think it’s Chip just sticking to his guns about having to earn your role like JMatt still running with the twos

      • RIP illa

        I getcha. But it’s one thing to earn your spot, and another to be clearly better than the guy ahead of you, but not get the opportunity to see what you can do.

        • Javi Echie

          I completely agree broski

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    Pats got away with holding in the backfield

  • anon

    these flags are crazy. going to be 4hrs tv time for games.

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    nfl is going to lose customers with all these flags. hope this is just preseason over tossing.

    • James Skip Carl

      It’s UNwatchable

  • RIP illa

    Good open field tackle by Marsh. Bad read and react by the D.

    • anon

      marsh is a good tackler. like what i see

      • RIP illa

        Gotta work on his recognition in coverage tho!!! Damn! Reports are that he sucks in zone and is better in man. That may keep him off the squad this year. Hope Chip and Company will be watching the waiver wire for backup CBs for that 5th spot.

        • anon

          don’t blame him for the back shoulder, but he is getting picked on out there. Should have forced the receiver closer to the sideline to cut off back shoulder, but it’s pre-season. Cary obviously picks him off.

  • RIP illa

    Still waiting for Bennie to show off that muscle he packed on!!!

  • RIP illa

    Cary out with the ol’ hammy pull. Won’t return

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      Too bad Watkins and Carrol are both no-go

      • RIP illa

        Really need some healthy Carroll in my life!!!

        • Will, Always Shady in CA

          Ill feel much better with him at one of the CB spots

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      lol. vet, he got his work in

      • RIP illa

        That would be a classic vet move. Live preseason NFL…lol.

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    what a waste of time, like the nfl is going to take points of the board.

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    Lol… Momah…

  • anon

    momah fumble

    • RIP illa

      RC’s loving that

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        So are Benn and Maehl

        • RIP illa

          Good point.

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    lol. This game is a comedy of errors if ever there was one.

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    I thought Seahawks were the team that was gonna have all the defensive flags with their grabby corners, but our d-line can’t seem to keep their hands off folk face. lol. Boy oh boy let’s hope this is just a pre-season thing.

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      Im hoping we are just getting all of our issues out the way before that Jags game

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    Looks like we’re just not gonna play offense this quarter.

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    If all games were called like this, the nfl would die.

    • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

      That’s Roger Goodell’s plan to destroy the NFL.

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        Its working

  • anon

    defense looking terrible again.

    • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

      Understatement of the night. SMH.

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    Um…come on 1st string D. You can’t get burned by the Pats backups. Good lord.

    • Andy Six Score and Four

      Not the first team d. That was Travis long covering the wrong guy there.

      • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

        Okay. I’ll accept that. Doesn’t make me feel better though.

        • Andy Six Score and Four

          What makes me feel better is that the refs have made it clear this isn’t a real game. Ok, not really.

  • daggolden

    Fans keep harping on the flags. lol Yeah that’s the problem

    • RIP illa

      It’s not bout flags hindering our D…it’s about flags making it a completely unbearable experience for the viewer!

      • Andy Six Score and Four

        This

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      No, but its seriously annoying. A flag every play and sometimes two.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      except every ex-nfl coach has said ‘you can throw a flag on every play’. difference between flag that impacts play and 1 that doesnt.

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    Well now it’s Pats D turn for all the flags. Turnabout is fair play.

  • anon

    momah coming back nice catch

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    Momah the dig route gawd

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    If Momah takes it to the house, all is forgiven.

  • anon

    w.o.w.

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    Oh this is brutal :-/

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    I know it’s pre-season. But d@mn.

  • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

    Well..good thing, there are 3 quarters left. Bad thing..there are 3 quarters left.

  • Token

    Nothing has changed my mind that this D is gonna be a real issue this year. They are gonna get abused. And I dont believe the offense is gonna be as amazing as everyone is expecting. At least not at the start of the year. We may have overvalued Barbre.

    This team needs a lot of work. Id play starters a lot next week. They have a brutal opening to the season.

    • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

      “We may have overvalued Barbre.”

      Who did that?

    • RIP illa

      Starters usually play a lot during the 3rd week of preseason. Not to not acknowledge your points, but that just kinda stuck out to me.

      • Token

        Yea usually playing into the 3rd Q. They will need that work.

        • RIP illa

          Totally agreed. They need to knock off this so called “rust” and get their ish 2gether…ASAP! We look so sloppy on both sides of the ball. If it wasn’t for my love of watching individual performances over the team performance, during preseason, I’d be pretty pissed right bout now.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      see about these flags. not sure how anyoen can tell what is what. it’s insane. bears v jags wasnt like this. watched couple panther preseason, was nothing like these 2 games.

      • Token

        OMG the flags. If thats how the games will be when the season starts its a unwatchable product.

    • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

      You’re absolutely right Token.

    • Token

      Another thing, its embarrassing that guys like Marsh and Matthews are stealing all these valuable reps. Howie never knows when to give up on a bum. You gotta know as fast as possible when a guy is a dog. Infuse the roster with guys that have a chance to be something. Keeping these absolute no talent bums on the roster, let alone having them steal so many reps is crazy.

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        maybe they are just trying to figure out roster. PS games are ridiculous, we care, but Momah fumbling…does that really count? he might not even make team

  • RIP illa

    Coulda swore Curry got tackled to the ground after penetrating on that 1st down run by NE. I’m thinking the refs are gonna call a bunch of BS ticky tack calls but still not be able to get holding calls right.

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    Allen came through that line like a madman

  • anon

    Oh well, I guess I can look forward to Billy D’s press conference about “progress”.

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    I really hate Billy Davis. No optimist can convince me otherwise anymore.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      it’s all 2nd teamers right now…heck, probably couple cut guys

      • anon

        vs second teamers….

      • Andy Six Score and Four

        Or in the case of Marsh, guys about to be out of the nfl.

      • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

        Please. We’re a miscommunication with a third string TE away from being down 21-0.

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          momah fumble. he isnt even making team.

          • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

            And the only “good” drive our offense has put together was off a blocked punt.

          • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

            Plus who would you use to replace him? We’re gonna need six WRs. Injeremy Report Maclin is gonna get hurt once a game, we don’t know Coop’s status, JMatt, rookie 1, is having the Ertz first year drops, and Huff is, well, rookie 2.

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    Marsh toasted.

  • anon

    I take it back Marsh is terrible.

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    And Boykin with a terrible play.

  • anon

    Lets just let them run it in so we can get the offense on the field.

    • Stuart Philp

      D needs every snap it can get

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    Good attempt Wolfe, almost…

  • Javi Echie

    IT’S PRESEASON PEOPLE!!!!!.. and only the second game at that calm down with the negativites

    • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

      It’s one thing if it’s new problems. These are problems we endured all of last year. Weak secondary play, no pass rush, and depth at O-line (see for instance Barbre being 30+).

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        linebackers were philips matthews long and smith. hopefully smith is only one who sees 1/4 game snaps.

        • Token

          Yea now, the starters did play and horribly.

          I cant believe how some can defend Barwins pass rush ability. He has zero rush ability. If a man is blocking him hes neutralized.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            inbetween 900 flags? there is no way nfl throws that many flags reg season. kelly must have them ramped up or somthing. no one will watch a game.
            .
            maybe kelly and davis are getting soemthing out of all these flags, but it is brutile

        • anon

          you thought the game looked any different w/ the starters?

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            not sure what i saw with all those flags.

        • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

          Usually I’d be agreeing with all your posts. But I can’t get hip to them with what I’m watching now. It’s the same problems.

      • Javi Echie

        I feel what you’re saying but the first two preseason games are more for the backups to show there stuff

        • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

          I’m trying to be optimistic but I can’t see it.

    • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

      Even pre-season shouldn’t look this bad. Sorry I’m all about it’s pre-season, but yeah….

    • Token

      I have a sneaking suspicion we will be hearing things like this into week 6 of the actual season. “Its only week 5 guys plenty of time to rebound.” Preseason doesnt excuse horrible execution on a match up to match up basis.

      Dont overlook that Jags game. Im telling you that right now.

      • Javi Echie

        If this continues into the regular season then I worried until then I’m not…I agree on the Jags game and not sleeping on them but they don’t have enough offense or defense to keep up with us

        • Token

          They have enough offense to shred our D. I think any half decent NFL starter can score against our defense. And Id expect them to have a improved D this season.

        • anon

          what offense are you watching? I don’t think we’ve had a first down.

          • Javi Echie

            Clearly you didn’t read my comment so I’ll say it again. This is preseason, if it continues into the regular season then I’ll be worried

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      We looked way more crisp last year. It looks like we skipped training camp out there

      • Javi Echie

        Not in preseason we looked pretty awful in the preseason last year

        • Will, Always Shady in CA

          At least the offense moved last year

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    Marshed.

    • Andy Six Score and Four

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      249, by my official account

        lol. Have an upvote sir!

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    marsh still stinks. can we finally pull ripcord on this joker?

    • Andy Six Score and Four

      We can.

      • Token

        He will be back. They always are back. Nate Allen will also be here another 4 or 5 years.

        Best comment of the night! lol

  • jay ray

    This team is flawed.

    • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

      It’s pre-season.

      • Token

        This was a very flawed team last year. They got a ton of breaks that hide some of that. Problem is they didnt improve the roster in the offseason. And now face a much harder schedule, not one of the worst in the league like last season.

        Ive seen teams flip the switch once the season starts. But Id be surprised if thats this bunch. Just dont have the horses on defense.

        • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

          I’m not arguing any of that. I agree actually. However, if you’re gonna look bad, now is the time.

  • anon

    I’m laughing b/c i want to cry. Everything that’s bad about the team on that drive…hard shank by Hneery, but we knew that.

  • Token

    Dont forget that last preseason they didnt even run their fast paced offense much. They were still feeling things out. Heck, they didnt do it all the time in the regular season.

    This year they are running their offense and looking bad doing it. Preseason or not, the execution on a player to player basis is really bad so far. Thats really gotta change. Foles is still looking like the hesitant guy we saw last year. Will he still get away with holding the ball so long like last year? Maybe. But I really wanted to see him improve in that area in the offseason.

    They are really gonna need big things out of Ertz too. I was about ready to buy into the media hype myself. Seeing Patrick Chung stuck to him like glue gives me a little pause tho.

    • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

      “Will he still get away with holding the ball so long like last year?
      Maybe. But I really wanted to see him improve in that area in the
      offseason.”

      Yes. As long as he’s not playing the NFC West.

      • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

        Though I wouldn’t recommend it while Barbe is still in.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      he playing with 3rd, maybe 4th WRs. man, take a xanax

      • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

        You really think Maclin is gonna make it through the year?

        • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

          HA. HAHA. HAHAHA. HAHAHAHA.

          No.

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          i think Momah isnt ever going to have a chance to fumble in real game.
          .
          have more of an issue with all the D flags. half the flags were BS and Eagles stopped Brady like 5 times on 1st td series.

      • Token

        That is true. Tho I dont think Coop is that drastic of a difference maker either way. And Maclin, who the hell knows if he will stay healthy.

        When you start seeing a bunch of excuses for poor execution it usually doesnt lead to great things. Saw this kind of take a lot in the later Reid years.

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          think Cooper is better than we think. i was never a Coop guy, but Kelly is…soooo.
          .
          flags..freak out about all the D flags. cant give another Offense 3 or 4 fre 1st downs. that has to stop.

          • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

            Kelly also got rid of the guy who we knew was a barn burner. Just ’cause Kelly does it, doesn’t make it right.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            well, for last 16 months, it kinda does.

          • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

            Yeah. No.

    • Amar, CB who bought in

      Atleast the veteran players feel great in December.
      And Momah plays for the Eagles instead of Desean…coz he bought in.

      The garbage Skins D held the Pats up for longer.
      and please don’t forget Chip worshippers, the 2 TDs were hung on the Eagles by Jimmy bleepin Garappolo. Howz that for a thought ?

    • Token

      Also, if they are less explosive then last year that can be ok. However, they need to counterbalance that with being more efficient. More 1st downs. Less dead drives. Less seemingly broken plays. So far not so good on that front.

      With how good the coaching and practices are supposed to be, this team looks as sloppy as any team Ive watched in the preseason.

    • Javi Echie

      So after that do you still need to see more from Ertz?

      • Token

        I dont take much from that play. Foles had the ball for 10 seconds and Chung was right there. Dont see that happening too often in a real game.

        But he will have to make catches with a guy on him like that so thats a plus.

      After just 1 short-field TD drive ??
      NO, let them drive across the field against the NE 2nd team.

      • Andy Six Score and Four

        Starters usually only play a quarter in this game.

        • anon

          Yeah but they only got 4 plays in the first quarter. It’s about no. of reps. If you’re continually going 3 and out gotta stay in longer. That said i’m ready for sanchize.

          • Andy Six Score and Four

            Which is why they played this long. That’s enough now.

          • Amar, CB who bought in

            “That said i’m ready for sanchize.”
            That’s what its come down to….Marcus Mariotta, here we come.

    just throw it 35 times a game to Ertz

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    The Pats are getting away with murder on the O line, except that time

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    I honestly think Chip is fine with mediocrity from special teams and defense. Bump all the ST ace stuff. How is Henery still on this team? I’ll save my rant about Bill Davis for Sheil’s all-22.

    • anon

      We’d be in a much different position w/ made field goals last year. How they didn’t try to do something i don’t understand.

        He missed that field goal and my head really, actually, legitimately hurt pondering that question.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      mediocrity…last week KO ret for TD and this week blocked punt. i’ll bet good money someone is brought in before season to compete with him

      • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

        Cliff, man, I’m really REALLY trying. But

        WHY WAIT UNTIL NOW TO GET A NEW KICKER?! WE SAW THIS LAST YEAR!! THAT IS ALL WE NEEDED!! THEY’RE NOT GETTING A NEW KICKER.

        Sorry buddy. I’m mad at Henery. Not you.

      • Stuart Philp

        Yeah but he looks sharp, making quick decisions and throwing well. That’s all you can ask for. It’s extended practice ;)

        you saying we should see him against the ones? i’m starting to think that.

          we’er about to get this td right now

        • http://brownsugar28.com/ Brown Sugar

          Actually I’m not saying that. Though to be honest I think he’d look good against the ones…but for me when a vet is in, they are supposed to look sharp against 2s and 3s.

    • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

      One of those guys was actually hoping it was Cary Williams that got burnt on a play. Like Cary Williams specifically.

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        So much for professionalism, it feels like we are watching a local game. I didn’t even see if Boykin walked off the field on his own.

        against 2nd and 3rd team offense right?

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          really Eags are always WRs are 2nd and 3rd, he has Ertz kicking teeth in of inferior guys. it matters. but like what i see from Sanchez.
          .
          annnnnd, Henery still stinks.

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    So much panic about Sanchez as even a backup. Lol

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    Oh how things change. Had the backup last year looked like this, in the exact same circumstances, we’d be calling for the starter’s head.

    Just a thought.

    • Andy Six Score and Four

      When the starter went 8/10 for 81, a td and no pics? Really? BS

      • anon

        You see how ugly those plays were. Did you watch Sanchize go the distance like we wasn’t playing against anyone?

        • Andy Six Score and Four

          Ok aub

      • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

        I’m just saying. You were around last year. Had FOles been Sanchez last year, and Vick, Foles this year (… yeah that makes sense) this page would be LIVID.

            Fly Eagles Fly.

        • Pennguino

          I might have misread your post but I am thinking it is not even close. Everyone saw what Vick had to offer over the last decade and still half of the fans wanted Foles. The Foles and Vick battle was close.
          Now we saw what an amazing year Foles put up and everyone is still warming up to USC Butt Fumble. I am happy Dirty is looking good. I want to see him push Foles. Even if Nick says all the right things you have that check and balance sitting right there to keep him honest

          • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

            Sans the pick, I’m just saying… The backup came in and ran the offense more efficiently than the starter. That’d be enough.

    • anon

      I know right. TD!!

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    Aight Benn! Try and make the team then!

  • Token

    I am not a Sanchez guy. I dont like him as a QB. I do not look forward to the possibility of him starting here.

    But as an example do you see how the offense looks when he comes in? The command, speed and getting it out a bit quicker. Thats how Foles has to do it. If its gonna be a bit less explosive this year its gotta be nice and crisp.

      Like I was telling Will, I think, earlier… One of the announcers was hoping that it was Cary Williams that got burnt on a play. Called him out by name. Legitimately said verbatim “Is that Cary Williams (it was Curtis Marsh, of course)? Oh… I was hoping it was Cary Williams.”

    • RIP illa

      Probably, but I’ve been really feeling the idea of him as an RB for us, since he is taking snaps at practice due to injuries. I think he could do good as a scat-back and we need one in Chip’s arsenal. And also, let’s get him off of punt return duties.

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        Rather keep Josey

        • RIP illa

          Not a fan. Every single good run I have seen him run, he has had wide open holes and all he had to do was run through them with his mid 4.4 speed. Have not seen much in the way of cutting, making people miss, and or vision.

          • Andy Six Score and Four

            Which still makes him better than dj2 :)

          • Will, Always Shady in CA

        Is Polk injured? Is Polk ever not injured? If its me, I dont keep Polk. Too injury prone, low upside anyway. Tucker I dont really care either way. Id rather keep a upside guy as my #3 back. Maybe Josey is that guy? I dont really know much about him. I just know that guys like Polk and Tucker can be picked up off the street at any point during the season if need be.

        • Will, Always Shady in CA

          Of course Polk is injured

          Josey looked much more explosive and elusive as a RB tonight compared to Tucker last week.

            Nah, het gets hurt getting out of the tub the night before the Jags game

      • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

        think they took Pope out

        • Charles

          9 receptions and 104 yards..beast.

          • Will, Always Shady in CA

            Its going to be crazy with him and Ertz on the field together

          • Charles

            and shady and sproles in the backfield…crazy.

          • JosephR2225

            Ertz and Matthews might also be the best options for CB depth as well.

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    this damn thing isnt going overtime, is it?

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    Think that was Villanueva with the sack?! If it was, bad ass!

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    has tim’s Emil even played tonight?

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      I haven’t seen him or Annen

    • RIP illa

      Don’t even mention that name. Hate the fact that he’s still on the team almost as much as Casey Matthews.

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    Demaris from the 1? Really?

    • Andy Six Score and Four

      Did Josey get hurt?

      • Charles

        I’ve seen enough of him to be our 4th RB!

    • JosephR2225

      Chad Hall was unavailable.

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      Has he been demoted from WR duties?

    • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

      it was either him or Duce Staley

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      4 times. oh, preseason

      • RIP illa

        OL got no push whatsoever, but what can you expect from the 3s and 4s…I guess.

      • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

        he actually looked ok on a few of those carries. hopefully enough to temper the Henry Josey excitement

        • Andy Six Score and Four

          Josey should probably be starting over Shady.

          • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

            I see Canton in his future

          • Andy Six Score and Four

            I think he and Sanchez and Momah will be inducted together as the Eagles all-time triplets.

          • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

            No love for Kinne I see

          • Andy Six Score and Four

            Sacrilege. Never question my Kinne love.

          • JosephR2225

            Sanchez to Josey = $$$$$$$

        • RIP illa

          LMAO…you don’t like Josey either? Good God Man, you’re a blight on all our hopes and dreams!!!

          • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

            I like Tucker

          • RIP illa

            Me too.

    • RIP illa

      Okay, yeah. That just kinda killed the DJ2 RB experience for me!

  • Jbauer

    How you guys think Momah did today? I am really routing for him…

    • RIP illa

      Fumble and redzone drop. But he is getting separation and showing some kind of receiving ability vs last year.

    • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

      Didn’t get the game where you live?

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      I don’t think he did himself any favors today. He needs to play bigger and faster.

    • Charles

      Practice squad.

      • Jbauer

        I think if they release him another team may pick him up

        • RIP illa

          Doubt it. Just is still way too raw. He’s not done enough to show during games. But who knows…maybe he’s done enough in practice to stay on the team. Happened with certain players last year, may happen with him.

        • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

          we can only hope

    • Andy Six Score and Four

      He looked like he definitely belongs on the 90 man roster.

  • anon

    seahawks look dominant

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      Can’t wait to play them

  • Andy Six Score and Four

    Well, the offense started to click tonight despite no starting wide receivers, so we’ve got that. I’ll just hope the D looks better next week, and that the refs don’t decide to piss on the first half.

    • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

      the refs were the most dominant team on the field tonight, 2-0

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        Story of both PS games.

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        was 21 accepted penalties when i checked mid 4th. know at least 2 times offsetting and twice double penalties where can only take 1. so minimum 27 penalties called.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    You guys were on fire tonight. Just got on here a few minutes ago and scrolled thru and can’t stop laughing. Sadly only caught a few minutes of the game.
