I really hope they decide to keep 2 QB's & 4 RB's (Portis, LJ, Torain & Williams)

THe Ravens game will give us more of a gauge as to where we are. The Bills were just downright awful and we seemed to be at the top of our game already, but I suspect a lot of it was the Bills just plain suck.

I agree 100% about the Ravens game being a true test for our club.

On top of that he looked open on every pass route he ran with the exception of one. He just looked faster on his feet to me and he's going to need it cuz torain and williams looked really good at times and we still haven't seen LJ who has had a very strong offseason.

I dont know, I was hoping for a little more from Portis...he seemed like the same ole Portis to me. I'd like to see a second gear coming out of the hole, he just doesnt have that anymore. Im with you on LJ, I really want to see what he has and believe LJ can move up the depth chart if he cant run with more explosiveness through the middle. I think LJ is better than Portis with breaking tackles too. I believe both will see alot of pt through the season, but if what we saw from Portis Friday night is what we are going to get, than I rather have LJ running the ball the majority of the time.

Im in wait and see mode right now between the two since of course we have just started the preseason games, but I want to see more out of our running backs

Thumbs up Re: Players that impressed you the most after the 1st preseason game?

Nick Sundberg=After all his bad snaps during practice,I thought he did well during the game,but I understand signing the Jets LS as well

Trent Williams=Thought he did very well against maybin. Specially since it's been a long time since he's played any football. Wasn't perfect,but I liked what I saw from "Silverback"

Donovan McNabb=Wasn't Great and even had a dirt ball,but he didn't do anything stupid. Leadership and Confidence were very visible to me in his 1st preseason game. He will only get better,as he gets even more comfortable.

Brandon Banks=How can you not root for this 5'7" little guy? lol...This guy seems very special to me already and I hope he makes the team. Oh..how we have been missing a return game for so..so long. I want to see him at WR or at least on WR screens too.

Chris Cooley=Is this guy money or what? Love Fred Davis,but Cooley will be a big reason this season why McNabb stays comfortable back there. I guess you can say Cooley will be McNabb's "Westbrook". Hitting Cooley when there are no others options.

There are more,but I'll go with these 5...

I hope you are right. He did look very comfortable.

I am going to wait to see how Rexy does against Ravens.
His two passes that should been intercepted, in the arms of the Bills DB and the DB's just dropped it. They were easy pick offs and one would have been a pick 6. Even the TD pass to Fred Davis was a risky ugly floater. If the Db covering on that play been a good DB, it would have been an easy pick.

He is great when he fires it in, it is those soft lazy passes that he sometimes makes scare me. His biggest criticism coming in was his arm strength. Not sure it is the strength as much as his inconsistency in the velocity of the ball going to receiver.

I agree with that 100%. I think if Torain and K Williams keep showing up like that in the next couple preseason games they almost have to keep them. I mean why in the world would we need a third QB if our back up QB's first name is Sexy? The rest takes care of itself....

But he looked really comfortable throwing those ill-advised passes. Body language, dude.

Yeah on his Fred Davis touchdown throw, if their corner had come back a little earlier that very easily could've been a pick six. He made some plays, but he also had some throws that left me scratching my head. Overall throw his good plays were way better than his bad ones and that's what people are going to remember. I just hope if he has to play this season that he doesn't try to make a play and end up getting burned bigtime.

But that's what you get from Grossman. Risky passes that could lead to 6 either way. Not saying Grossman is one of the best QBs...but that's what you get from some of the best QBs. How many fewer TDs do you think Favre would have if he was afraid to risk a few INTs every now and then?

Grossman. I was worried that if McNabb had to miss a few games the Skins would have an inadequate back-up but it looks like if Rex has to come in for a few games he can get the job done.

Re: Players that impressed you the most after the 1st preseason game?

I am not as confident at you Irish. He was pretty close to throwing 2-3 Ints the other night. Turnovers are a killer.

Any backup can come in and throw INTs...why not have one who can possibly light up a defense too? Risk and reward.

Since he's NOT the starter, I'm OK with him being a bit dangerous, because he can carry us too if he's having a good day. He's the backup, so why not have a backup who can score instead of just "manage" the game to a couple of FGs.

No other team can say they have 2 Super Bowl starting QBs on their roster.
