Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Preseason Week 2)

Definitely happy with the win, but still it's time to lay the smack down.

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.

How bout Jim Zorn on the first drive calling a timeout to kick a chip shot FG. This is preseason and it was a good time to go for a td on 4th down.

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

Campbell's got to complete that third and five pass to Fred Davis. Whether it's Davis' fault or not is irrelevant to me. They need each other.

But Campbell was 2/4 on "read" passes, and we've really got to find some receivers who can line up in the right damn spot. Maybe they called Samuels on that one for being off the line, but usually illegal formation is a receiver penalty and at this point it's completely inexcusable.

If you think you can tell anything that you didn't already know from four passes, you're likely insane, and I worry for you.

Special Teams Seriously.

Pass coverage It was a bad unit at the end of last year, and it's worse now. What gives? Why do we ever leave the middle of the field wide open on third down?

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

the skins running game- first team vs. first team. i thought the o- line did a nice job for Portis. and all of sudden, our defense looks fast as hell
and my bad. i thought this was positives and negatives

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

JC: you are correct. I liked his decision making but his accuracy was off. We need to see better from him.

The special teams coverage units were bad in a scary way. Major fixes are required.

Batiste: he just hasn't cut it at all

Missouri Missile: I like how he made the qb derby much more interesting. I think he benefited from having his first read be open on a repeated basis. But, still, he was decisive, accurate, and ran the ball well. What other qb has led us to a td so far? I generally oppose putting qb's on the practice squad but Chase may be an exception that should be made.

Leaving aside Batiste, I feel much better about our o-line, and not just the first team, than I did a few weeks ago. If the qb's did not get it done, it's not because they didn't have protection.

I think the fg call was made because we need to test drive kickers. What got me about that was the wasted time out. We could have just kicked it.

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

daniel was impressive.....

special teams coverage -- get real.

pass coverage -- not as bad as ppl make it seem..... u have to expect the other nfl team to complete a few passes but it definitly can, and will get alot better.

d-line -- crazy depth. they look real good.

orakpo - seems to be getting better each game

marko mitchell -- needs to make this team.

portis/betts -- looked good. both.

colt brennan -- i dunno.

kelly/thomas -- have to keep getting better

fred davis -- way to bounce back.

J.campbell -- we'll see next game.

zorn/blache -- play calling can get better.



loved the win. lets keep improving

He does need to manage the huddle better though, those time-outs were not a good sign.

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

Common sense says to keep Collins as backup QB, but I really like what I saw out of Daniels, Brennan looked good except for the INT. I would love to keep those 2 young QB's just in case Campbell is not resigned and take a chance with the unproven youngsters. I would hate to lose Daniels or Brennan to another team, it would be easier to get rid of the old man.

The field goal was because Zorn did not want a shut out. he should have tried at least one fade with Campbell, unless he has no confidence in him???

It is an....especially unattractive attribute to gloat so, regarding your......alleged assessment of young Chase Daniel. And you a moderator............BAD moderator, bad, bad moderator

On the pass coverage, its simple piss poor coaching and planning.
