Re: Pre-Season Games Thread (Commanders & League)

Anyone else watched the first few series of browns @ jagz ?
Deshaun Watson sure looked way off his game. Wether it was the time not playing, the distraction with the suspension looming, or a combination of both, he was inaccurate, couldn't connect even on very easy throws ... You can say it's what pre season is for, but it's not something Browns fans wanted too see.

Re: Pre-Season Games Thread (Commanders & League)

This whole waiting until 1:00 p.m. all season is going to be absurd. I've been to the gym, grocery store, cleaned my apartment, did laundry, and it's still barely past noon. For all of you lifetime east-coasters I commend your patience.

Now that I am back on the east coast I can not stand what time the games come on. I got so use to morning 🏈!!!

People that have never lived out west don't know how awesome it is to wake up and have your breakfast/ brunch/ coffee and have the games come on. Or get off work and have college bball on at 4pm. MNF at 530pm is possibly the best thing on earth.. 😂. I never make the end of MNF on the east coast.. 😡

That fumble hurt. Liked what I saw from Robinson and Patterson though. Feel Patterson may be underrated.

When I moved to NY even that 1 hour wait was a big change

Re: Pre-Season Games Thread (Commanders & League)

Closing in on the 1st half, I'll check the 2nd half later mainly to see Sam Howell.

Thought the Oline played pretty well overall. Norwell is solid.

Schweitzer is really good, I wouldn't be surprised if he started at RG over Trai Turner.

So I guess we are officially a 5-2 defense now, I don't think I saw one snap in 4-3 in the 1st half. Let's see how it works.

Forgot about DT Daniel Wise, he had some nice plays, with rookie Mathis Phidarian (also had a solid game) + DEs Toohill and Smith-Williams, DL depth may not be the issue we thought it'd be when we lost both Settle and Ioannidis.

Oh, and Johnathan Allen is a freakin monster.

Ma gawd I hope David Mayo doesn't see the field at all this year. He got burnt against 2s and 3s... Just awful. Nate Gerry better climb that depth chart fast.

FWIW, I agree with everything you said. I think both of our lines (offense and defense) are going to be badass this season. We have talented, nasty linemen on both sides of the ball.

Are you going to be representing Commanders Nation in the Far East, now?

At least he wasn't invisible like Jamin Davis.

Yop, and let's hope the DL coach getting fired has them finally playing to their talent level.
I feel like Oline has been overplaying their talent and Dline underplaying so far, especially last year.

And yes, I'm proudly wearing my Burgundy and Gold throughout the land of the rising sun. Should probably change my signature.

Still not a fan of the name, but seeing them take the field as Commanders didn't feel as weird as I thought. The "color doesn't match even if they say it does" white jerseys aren't that bad, and the helmet are fire...

But you can get hammered now without all that stuff hanging over your head.

Re: Pre-Season Games Thread (Commanders & League)

I'd like to get some input from you crazy people regarding our DE depth. I've been skeptical about that depth but I thought I saw some good work from James Smith-Williams and William Bradley-King in the first exhibition game. So, can I relax now?

Also, I have a couple of other questions for the peanut gallery:

I thought DT Daniel Wise had a good game, as well, so I'm wondering if he could play both inside at DT and outside at DE. He has the body for it and I liked his quickness in the game. Any thoughts on that?

Instead of having Shaka Toney languishing on the bench as a DE, why not move him to LB? We have a need there and Toney is an outstanding athlete who has just about the perfect body for the LB position. Maybe one of you Penn State followers could weigh in on this.

Re: Pre-Season Games Thread (Commanders & League)

I like our depth across the D-line, both DEs and DTs.

Bada, Wise, Mathis, Obada - should be more than solid behind Allen/Payne. I honestly don't think we'll miss Matty I or T Settle. Of course injuries could change the dynamic quite a bit, but that could happen regardless.

Smith-Williams, Toohill, Bradley-King, Toney - should be fine behind Young/Sweat. I think the secondary will help them out considerably too, as I've heard nothing but good things about our secondary rotation. Big question is - When does Young come back and how effective will he be this year?

My opinion is that they have done a pretty good job shoring up the front end and the back end. Jury is still out on whether the lack of attention at the LB position will be a factor.
