I wonder what he will say when Romo is broken into little pieces.
A Cowboy fan talking about overrated defensive players? That's funny.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Preseason Week 2)

Everyone pretty much said what are needed to be "smacked", regarding Campbell, I think it was just not his night tonight..

I want to add some positive signs;

1st group O-line: I'm surprised with their performance, I truly hope the trend will continue through out the season.. From what I have seen, Heyer did well..

D-line: Man, coaches will have difficult time to decide who makes on the list.. Although I think Wynn and Buzbee are pretty much out of the picture?

RBs: Dorsey and Mason have done well; Dorsey have more edge over Mason due to special team experiences.. If Dorsey continues to do well, we might see Rock get cut.. Although I'm still curious about Alridge, since he was signed to Denver when Shanahan was a coach and he has good history of finding RB gems..

Mitchell: Like I said in another thread; if he continues to excel in next two games, which I'm sure he will, then I would definitely have hard time to believe that he would not take the #5 spot..

Would love to see Mitchell go up the WR depth chart with Kelley. We need tall young wideouts badly. Moss and ARE are starting to show age a bit(based on last season).

Line of the night last night, I forgot who posted it though-sorry, was "Pineapple Judas!" after the interception. He's played rather crappily in comparison to his Preseason Hall of Fame performance last year.

My major complaint is with Zorn. I'd argue that of all of the sure fire starting QB in the league, the one who needs the most pre-season game reps is Campbell. Why are you treating him like he's Manning or Brady or Brees who just needs to make a couple of tosses in August and he's ready to go?!? I've been a JC supporter for the duration but it's time to see the finished product. I am firmly of the belief that 'preseason is meaningless' with the exception of building rhythm and timing. We've seen neither from our 1st string offense.

I would have played Campbell, Thomas, Kelly and Davis for at least a half last night and give them 3 quarters next week. Get Mitchell some time with the starters at WR against the Pats since we know that if there's anything our WR do consistently, it's miss time.

Yeah, I think that was Pocket$ $traight. It was pretty damn funny. Not sure, but I suspect that first unit would have gotten more time had the weather conditions been nicer.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Preseason Week 2)

Interesting:

washingtonpost.com

Yes, by starting Campbell, relieving him with Collins and then going straight to Daniel, Zorn seemed to be saying aloha to the greatest player in the history of the University of Hawaii.

After Brennan was intercepted, his second in two preseason games, there is real concern the end is near. Maybe Zorn thinks Brennan is too undisciplined to run his multiple-read, better-pay-attention offense. Maybe Brennan thinks as much of Zorn's playbook as Joe Gibbs thought of Al Saunders's playbook.

Either way, Chase was becoming Colt, circa 2008, as the fourth quarter waned. On a rainy August night, in a game that meant nothing -- well, nothing unless you wanted your employment to continue in the NFL.

Matt Mosley Lays the Smack.....up?

My thoughts on Skins' win over Pittsburgh - NFL Nation - ESPN

Some Tidbits

Reed Doughty was everywhere . I pretty much wrote the guy off last season, but he's actually had a solid camp. He made a couple of open-field tackles that were very impressive and he looked confident in the secondary.

How can you keep Marcus Mason or Marko Mitchell off this roster? Mason's one of the best preseason backs this organization has had. On Saturday, he showed the speed we've grown accustomed to seeing, but he also mixed in some power. He sent a Steelers safety flying at the end of one play. Mitchell made the nice touchdown catch from Chase Daniel. He hesitated at first in order to give Daniel some space to throw the ball. Then Mitchell simply won a jump ball. The former Nevada receiver might end up being the fifth receiver.

Former CFL star Dominique Dorsey has to make this team as a return specialist. And he's halfway home. He had some outstanding returns. The Skins need to reserve a spot on the roster for him. He's that good as a return guy -- and he runs with a little power.

Daniel had a really effective outing. I think he has the edge on Colt Brennan at this point. And yes, I know that hurts at lot of you guys.

This week we have to start with...

Jason Campbell The 1-10 is a bit misleading as one completion was actually called back due to a Samuels penalty, and he did attempt a couple of crazy deep passes...but still. Let's realize that his accuracy was off, his overall timing was off, and he didn't command the offense in any way that a top QB should. I'm not worried that we'll lose games because of him, but he needs to start showing on a regular basis that we'll win games because of him.

Special Teams The fumble return was nice, but otherwise can't say I was too impressed with the ST coverage. This is the chance for guys like Henson, Holmes, Eddie Williams make their presence felt and emerge as a leader on special teams play. Special teams is about more than just the kicker, punter, and returners.

D'Anthony Batiste I don't want to single him out because who knows if he even has a shot to make the team, but I really wasn't impressed with him today (or last week.

All of you who quietly (and no so quietly) laughed behind by back as I touted the greatness that is Chase Daniel this summer Who's laughing now bitches?! ...thought his pass to Eloi on I think 3rd down could have been a little better so Eloi could run with the ball but still, can't help but be happy with what Chase showed today. Still think he's most likely on our practice squad though.
You can really say that and are you wearing rose colored glasses? Come on SS I would think that all Skins fans should be worried about his play.
