    I gotta say...I have been very critical of BB's GM ability but Jimmy G just has that look to him on the field. I was thoroughly impressed. He was light years ahead of mallet.

    LOL at Rusty thinking Mallet was being showcased last night as trade bait.  My gosh!  Does Rusty know anything about football?  The guy is constantly wrong here.  If Mallet was being showcased last night then BB has no pulse how talented, or lack of talent some of these players are, and I don't think that's the case.  I don't think you could get a Starbucks gift card for Mallet after last night.  All those wasted years of money and time with Mallet is just plain discouraging and sad.

    Let's apply some common sense here. Garap is a quicker athlete than Mallett, they're night and day. One big and statuesque, one small(ish) and quick. There is no gameplanning in preseason. If there was, the plan would not have had Mallett making seven step drops and receivers running basic routes. 

    In the face of a pass rush (at least against the first team defense), Mallett had very little chance. A game plan would have had him making three step drops and receivers running shorter routes, not to mention Edelman and Amendola involved. 

    Mallett didn't play well, but Garap is more suited to a playground game. Garap (and the great Tyms) were going against threes. That makes a difference.

    I think you're understating things bit - yes it's only preseason - but the main difference was in my opinion the mental part of it. Garrapolo saw things quicker than Mallett did, every single time he dropped back he picked the right spot to throw to at the right time...Mallett has never done that since he's been here. Forget the nice passes by Garrapolo, it was the decisions I liked and the speed he came to those conclusions. And he was under pressure too, just like Mallett.

    It's possible he had easier reads than Mallett did.  I have no proof of this at all, but if Mallett is still 2nd on the depth chart when the season starts (and they both keep performing at the same level) I think it's safe to say that JG wasn't given the keys to the full playbook.

    As a follow up to my last post Reiss mentions that Cassel looked terrible in the preseason in 2008.  We all know how that worked out.

    Agreed, I saw and thought the same thing.  

    Besides it's not so much about what Mallet didn't do last night as much as he has been underwhelming now in four season's worth of preseason.  I mean even Bryan Hoyer moved the ball against opponents... the rest of preseason will spell this out for us but I for one will be watching Jimmy G with great interest now.  Mallet's roster spot is no longer a sure thing.

    In case no one has noticed Mallett has been playing and sucking against 2's, 3" and Burger Flippers in preseason for 4 years now and doing ch,it. This kid gets his first opportunity and shines.

     

    Mallett's Gone!!

    The difference to me was Cassel never looked panicked. Cassel's arm and accuracy wasn't there but he looked comfortable in the pocket and did step up into it. To me Mallett panics at times and doesn't look comfortable. Garp looked comfortable to me and looked like he belonged in the pocket. Mechanics you can work on but the mentality and pocket presence can't. Doesn't mean Garp is going to become great but does tell me he's got a good base to work off of mentally. Not sure Mallett has that same mentality.

    Re: Garapalo is your daddy...

    This guy could just be feeling the after effects of being an ex Dope Head. Ive never done it so Im not sure but its a pretty hard drug. His arm is a cannon but he always looks skittish. He brushed off questions of him rushing but he knows he got outplayed. Lets see how he responds.  I think he was a good gamble in the draft and Im glad we never had to see him play. So with that said, I liked the little I saw of Grap and Mallet...well he is on his way out and I dont care if they get a pick or just cut him cuz his days are over here anyway after next year. I dont want to see Grap ever in a game either but if he keeps progressing, I think we could survive a game a two with him. If Brady goes down for a season, your season is over anyway.

    I concur. The throw in the end zone on the run was a throw that only a handful of nfl players can make. It wasn't a td but,holy sheet, it was an impressive play.

Not the game, but we're talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that? ... And we talking about practice"

    You do have a point with that one...maybe I shouldn't of wrote to forget about the nice passes, because some of those were things of beauty.

    I also liked the velocity of his throws, because that's always a question mark with these younger players...can they make the throws? Because many of them can't, I think it's fairly obvious he can. There was a pass in the endzone (it wasn't caught) where he fired that thing in between a couple of defenders and you could see the power. That was impressive to me. No he doesn't have the ability to drive the ball down the field like Mallett or a Cutler has, but you don't have to have that.
