    Very well done. I was impressed with the real world review of Eric Smith. I was not impressed. Too many posters play favorites and duds and slant everything in that direction regardless of what actually transpired out there. We need a Smith-type to be capable against stalwart players when it matters, not second half against flubber or late season when opposing defensive linemen are worn out and it's very, very, very, very easy to be suckered by a young fresh guy who flashes a bit opposite of them.

    I've argued that last aspect for decades. There is very little in this league that is less meaningful than a transplant offensive lineman who looks decent in the closing stretch of games, especially when the team is already abandoned in terms of playoff opportunity.

    I was impressed with the O-line the most.

    I gotta say, I'm worried about Raekwon. If he's not good our lb core is back to bottom of the league. And we don't have Suh anymore to hide it.

    Is it ridiculous to be worried about him one preseason game in after missing his rookie season? Probably. But no more ridiculous than the majority of the board just pencilling him in as a great starter for us without playing a down.

    Smythe played with backups. Notably he was almost killed in the end zone when Fales air mailed it

    The linebackers could be our biggest weakness. Hopefully, McMillan is just rusty, a rookie and a little timid coming back from his injury and doesn't lack the talent. From a mental standpoint he should know this defense and should be able to decipher plays quickly. At least I hope so.

    Fantastic writeup and thanks for sharing. I’ve always admired the posters on here who have the intelligence and patience to break down game film with video examples. It allows the folks like me to do what they do best and make dick jokes.

    Well done!

    I totally agree with this. I actually never understood why the site is so high on Raekwon to begin with. Not that it’s the Bible but Every scouting report I’ve read says his projection is an AVERAGE starter who CAN’T COVER. Yet I see people shocked he’s not paired with Kiko in the nickel. Honestly is you read Raekwon’s and Baker’s scouting reports I think you’d be more excited about Jerome.

    if thats how Raekwon plays, i hope we move him to SLB, Kiko to MLB, and baker to WLB, sooner than later

    Thing is in addition to my post above he was projected as an average starter at SAM not MIKE.

    He did play. Bryce Petty threw a hospital ball that nearly got him killed in the end zone.


    Gerald McCoy routinely abuses starters in the NFL. He's done it to us in games that matter. I thought Smith looked good for a backup. Sam Young struggled a bit vs lesser competition, but likewise I think he's a good backup tackle.

    FWIW, I still strongly advocate for the long-term signing of Ja'Wuan James.

    That was a concerning showing, but it was his first live action basically since the bowl game in 2016.

    I think the defense was just asking to get beat, though I’m not sure the point of that. I get hiding your plans in preseason, but god damn challenge a route for god sake.

    Those snap counts were for the first half only. It took about 2 hours to do and I made an executive decision to get the column out quicker rather than tallying snap counts on the 3rd and 4th strings.
