They don't do him any favors with run run pass playcalling and the atrocious pass blocking of our 3rd stringers. I think he was just trying to make a play. He'll learn.

I don't mind him holding the ball, I do mind he was holding it extended away from his body in a collapsing pocket.

Patterson has to come back and attack that ball....It was a horrible throw from Dobbs.

Phillips is terrible

Jake Rogers is having a nice game.

Some things to like.

I'll bet Damoun Patterson was shocked Dobbs threw it to him when he was double covered and James Washington was by himself behind the defense.

Suddenly the depth at WR looks far healthier. Just one game but it does reflect what we've read about in camp about Washington and Paterson.

If Patterson has another game like that there's no hiding him on PS.

Adams has a motor on him. Adeniyi too. OLB suddenly doesn't look as bad as we thought...at least after 1 preseason game.

Meaningless I know...but we seem to have better depth at the 2nd and 3rd string levels than we've had in the last few years. That could prove very important later in the year.

I agree. We saw some good things from some young guys tonight.

Anyone else think Mason struggled a bit playing under center?

Yeah...fumbled snap, and a couple “shaky” handoffs. He’ll get better as it becomes more familiar.

Washington is the real deal. Rudolph needs some work but I’m a believer. He’s really quick in the pocket like maybe you’d expect from a young guy. But he clearly has a QB eye. Will he ever be able to open it up like Ben or Rodgers another question. But I like the player


Poise. You notice it straight away. Now does that translate to his overall play? We'll see but he carries himself with an air of confidence, Dobbs and Jones definitely do not have. His only "bad" throw was skinny post and it looked like Patterson for some reason slowed down on route.

I believe he ran the wrong route vs the coverage. The defender had to play off coverage because of no deep help over the top and had no help to the inside. Patterson needs to break that hard to the skinny post––instead he tried a double move which was completely unnecessary... either that, or he ran the wrong route.

It wasn’t an issue in the steeler game. The one time I remember it being called it was actually a good call.

Whether you like you like the rule change or not no one wants to see another injury like Shaizers.

Merrill Reese and Mike Quick disagree with you.

They ripped the shit out of the call.

What I heard during the boradcast was that the refs are going to use preseason to work out how and when to call it, and that the expectation is it won’t be called with as much frequency as it’s a;ready been called this young preseason.

Well- we’ll see about that...

I don’t know if Dobbs will make the cut.

But hot damn, what a Rope he threw. And Damoun Patterson with the great catch and the backflip.

It seems like it COULD be called on almost any play....which is yet another tool to influence games. I expect the thumb to be on the scale just as heavy as ever.

Yup...how is this different than holding? Can be called on almost any play.
The NFL continues to not think these things through thoroughly...
