Wow, our D is just so bad.


They looked pretty good 1st quarter. Looks like Allen is on the sidelines now, so maybe other 1st teamers are out now too?

As are some first team Bills....

Ponder improving and getting better. Great outing, good leadership, strong arm. The Kid will be great!

Well, since I can't see anything. How bad is the D looking. Is it an overall problem, or is it mainly the backfield that is the issue?

I'm not quite there yet. But he clearly is improved over last year. He has looked good. He still isn't seeing the whole field. In time maybe.

Webb would have so much more value to the team if he had been put at receiver when he joined the team.

First string defense dominated. Without Allen and Williams, no pressure on the qb. And the second string DB's look like they are running in mud.

3rd-and-3 and Webb throws a 1-yard outlet pass to Hilliard?

Every drive had gained big yardage. No three and outs. That's the good news. No td's in the last three drives... Bad.

I like that defense. Robinson goes for the ball, and Harrison makes the hit.

Nice hands by Aromashodu. Nice pass by Webb. Bad hands by Burton.

Better keep Cole. Especially with the guys we've got in the middle now...

Two minute warning.
Time for your commercial.
NFL game pass, for those of you outside the USA, is fabulous. Every game, live or in digits afterwards. Over the computer. Way better than Sunday Ticket.

How much does that cost and what do you have to do to get it. Hypothetically, if I had a vpn with a foreign IP, could I sign up?

CATCH A DAMN BALL!

FFS get these guys doing receiver drills after practice if they aren't already. how many is this 5 possible INTs? And our head coach is a secondary guy? Our d coordinator is a secondary guy? It's time these guys started catching those.

At least they're breaking them up, but those INTs might be the difference in games.

Yeah, no question. He's an athlete and he's being wasted holding a clipboard on a team that needs athletes. Stupid Childress. Once he got in at QB, the team was probably afraid to move him around again...which is probably somewhat reasonable considering the lack of quarterback depth.

$130 for the season and preseason. Sign up at NFL.com. With a foreign IP address, I assume. Watched the Packers game last night. May watch replays of todays other games later.

I think it will help me in my fantasy football league. Research you know.

Some might have. I thought he was a bit inconsistent his last year in college, and maybe wouldn't have been drafted. But it's something we won't know for sure for a year or so.

Is that the one that's going to give access to the all 22 as well, or was that something else?

A lot of people said that, but people who took his whole career into account actually realized he was a lot more consistent before his senior year, and that it appeared he had some mechanical issues that weren't worked out that season.

All I can say is, I'm glad the days that the Vikings have to keep a kickoff specialist because their regular kicker is only good from 45 or less and can't get the ball into the end zone is a good thing. They needed that extra roster spot this year, and they probably needed it the past several years. However, I didn't have a problem with it at the time because they just needed decent field position. But getting both combined into one? Such a novelty!

261-125 yardage advantage for the Vikes. And that is softened by the second team results.

Some NFL reporter had the Bills winning easily, 27-17 iirc. Was a pretty easy first half. He did get that right.
