    Re: What I saw last night

    In response to rkarp's comment:

    Not too worried about the score and saw some positives and negatives.....

    -Lions DLine is the type a Scar Oline struggles against. Exposed why Wendell is a good C, but struggles against size. A healthy Cannon would have been something to see how he has progressed. If healthy, I am starting to like Cannon starting beside Wendell. 

    -I can't criticize Thompkins. He is showing well. I wish he was a step to a step and a half faster. 

    -the pluses and minuses were on full display with the WR's last night. I certainly like these guys but Amendola, Edelman and Gronk getting regular snaps while the rookies mature will make TB happy

    -I still don't see it with Adrian Wilson. every thing I saw in camp with his loss of speed is showing in games. Was also in poor position on a few missed tackles. 

    -DLine looks great, but more depth is needed, which we all have been saying for the past month. 

    -Not making excuses, but Boldens fumble was on a pass that he caught around the side of his helmet, bobbling the ball for a second and not securing it quick enough. He showed good hands catching it. I am not concerned with him. I prefer him healthy and fresh, and like him on the team. I don't think Blount showed well....his tip toeing on the goal line was the complaint about him his entire career. 

    -also not worried about Mallett if called upon. 

    -are the Lions the dumbest team anyone has seen the past few years? 

    Other than the Raiders !

    Was at work saw the score laughed, Preseason. Been watching Football now for almost 50 years, and never take it serious. 

    Wins or Losses.

    Is this because you said last week Dobson was better? The guy is undrafted and has already been more impressive than other WR drafted by BB! He has legit NFL speed. His moves at the line negate any lack of elite speed that u may think he needs. That sounds live a very lukewarm assesment of a great pickup who could end up saving this offense. His suddeness at the line is already Pro level. Week 3, u run what u would reg. season and its telling that he is ahead of both draft picks. Its not because A.D. and J.B. arent good, its because KT is that much better. Brady likes him and he is the # 1 IMO until someone takes him out or he is injured. He is Chad Johnson with Brandon Marshalls route running. Speed wont be an issue. he continued to beat his man over the top. Other than I agree with your asessments.

     

    Now you see why I was worried about A.W.? I mean what are we gonna do now. he was signed for 3 years so I know they were counting on him.

    Have no real quarrel with rkarp's assessment.  I texted to a friend of mine after the taunting flag that the Lions D players are just plain dumb.

    I thought 2 over the top catches should have been scores...not a step out of bounds. I think Amendola, Edelman, Boyce and Dobson score on those plays...Thompkins didnt...

     

    Also, I didnt say Dobson or Boyce were better. I thought they had more upside. Thompkins IMO is already playing close to his ceiling...Dobson and Boyve only scratched the surface...will be interesting to see in December where they stand...today, Thompkins certainly is higher up the depth chart.




    I wouldnt attribute those plays to lack of speed. I would call it running out of bounds because its preseason and why get knocked out for 2 more yards. The other pass carried him towards the sideline and so he went out. Could he have tiptoed and stayed in>? Maybe but I think thats nitpicking and more precaution than anything. You must have hated B.Lloyd. He is much better. All im saying is, least of our worries. he is a surprise and a welcome site. Dobson has more upside. Boyce to me is a nice weapon but he cant do what KT does. He is like the Packers guy, the return man they made a WR. Nice weapon, but never gonna be a #1. Next year if Dobson progresses, I would say he SHOULD be the # 1 and then KT will beat Cbs silly on the other side as a legit # 2

    Re: What I saw last night

    Low compete level all around on both sides of the ball. What did stand out was how bad Thompkins wants to be a go to guy and not just make this team.

    Anyone notice that since Aqib Talib got burned by DeSean Jackson in the first preseason game that he's been terrific?  Glad we re-signed him.
