    Re: Observations



    I saw some nice potential in Hamilton, enough to think he makes the team, and enough to understand why McAdoo was let go.

    Moe Lee is interesting, will follow him closer.

    Liked some things about Marlon Brown, hosing down the bandwagon just in case.... as others have said he has a chance.

    Saw Furstenburg's catch and whooped it up, also noticed him blocking once or twice.... think this week the FO wanted to see what VS had/brings. Hopefully next week Matt gets to be on the field with Flacco.... I really want to see if he is close or needs a bunch of learning.

    Mellette is eh, think he may be PS currently.

    Edgar Jones award goes to LaQuan Williams. Edgar survived longer than any of us thought possible when he first arrived with that LB class here. And LaQ is stating a case that he can't be cut either without weakening the team....you go terp!
    And @SaltwaterRider yep 3 Terp receivers would be neat. If you are a die-hard Terp fan you remember when 6 Maryland QBs started in the NFL one Sunday? Maybe before your time (some started due to injury like Kelley in Buffalo, and one MD QB started but not as a QB but as a TE)
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    I highly doubt they're bringing in a vet. The team has already said they're sticking with what they've got so, baring injury, we are going to see if this group can manage.

    I happen to think they're going to surprise everyone.
    Agreed.

    And after week one and two, three, four in the preseason and week one in the regular season in Torreys rookie season there were more than one who asked for everything else than Torrey, even Harper, was upset that we cut Mason and more than happy than we signed Lee Evans.

    Heared that Laurent Robinson has been cleared from his concussion issues. May be worth the vet minimum. If healthy, he'd probably challenge for the #2 spot here.

    The defense: What can I say? They will be back in the top 5 rankings again. The D line is stacked with guys rotating and getting pressure on the opposing o line. LB core is also stacked with some good talent. Especially what Smith did. The secondary the cb needs more time to gel. Jimmy and chykie hopefully get it together. Elam a beast with the hits and coverage. No wonder Ozzie was smiling when he drafted him. And hope Moe Lee goes in the PS. The offense: I figured our starters would struggle at first but i wouldn't crucify them I would hold the judge as the preseason moves on. But LQ gotta start. This guy is mad underrated imo. And hope he continues to shine and hopes male the team. Thompson was decent but got hurt hope he's ok. Mellete has the potential hope he keep it up. Same with brown. Furstenburg had the spectacular catch he need to play with the starters. Ppl are underestimating him from starting at te. Rainy I hope he somehow makes the team in case pierce is not 100%. And tyrod can still scramble and his passing is improving.

    Re: Observations

    The throw was going to look late either way, because Jones looked to be the third or fourth option on the play. Then, Joe did hesitate before throwing it his way. However, Jones didn't come back to the ball. If he had, at the very worst, Gorrer would have broken it up. Even when Gorrer picked it he and Jones were almost even.

    These are not new issues for Jones. These are issues that he's constantly had in his career, when being asked to be a #2 WR. His routes are shaky and his hands are shaky. He can snag a few with nobody on him, but once bodies get on him, it's slim pickings.

    Honestly, This is starting to remind me of how Harbaugh handled Cundiff. He made Tucker work his way up, even though he already 'probably' felt that the move was going to be made. Then, he gave Tucker more time in preseason and put the pressure on him to see if he could handle it, because he already knew Cundiff couldn't.

    Ok but if that's the case who will be Justin Tucker in this analogy?

    I don't, because if he does another team is going to nab him quick. He's showing too much potential. CB-needy teams have their eyes on the waiver/PS wire, and you KNOW Jim Harbaugh is well aware of his brother's overcrowded backfield and the fact that one of them could help out his deficient secondary.

    The way I see it, it's either a roster spot or to the IR with a phantom injury for Lee if we want to keep him.

    I would have said Deonte Thompson, but he hurt his foot. Oddly enough, considering we are talking about kickers.

    I haven't read the whole thread, but couple things I saw early on.

    1. Doss was open on the Flacco INT for a tight throw. On the Jacoby drop Doss was WIDE open, nobody next to for 5 yards. We should have gotten an easy 1st down that was on Flacco.

    2. Unless we start Deonte at the number 2 slot, put Leach, Jones, Bajema on the bench, and start Doss in the slot we won't have any idea how potent this offense can be. Put DT and Doss were they can excel instead of behind JJ.

    3. LW and Mellette need 1st team reps.

    4. Moe Lee, Adrian Hamilton should make the team.

    5. Daryl Smith and Arthur Brown should be solid starters in the middle of our defense. But who'll play behind them?

    Re: Observations

    no it wasn't just you. I said the same thing when I saw the replay. He certainly didn't come back hard or fight for the ball. Jones also dropped another pass. I like Jones but he's more of a bomb guy that he can catch like a punt. I see him as a 3-4 type of guy.

By the way most teams in the league would be in the same boat. To me the running game is no better with Leach in than it is out of a single back. Other than in goal line and short yardage situations. With the first team offense in there they tried to establish the run and could not. I hope in game two we see more single back and more open offense out of our first team. Maybe they were just trying to ease the starters into live game action.
    We need Leach. Did you not see Juszczyk getting blown up by defenders all night? His blocking at best was poor.

    I saw him get blown up a couple of times. I also saw him blow up a guy as well as hold his own on occasion. He certainly has a long way to go, but I wouldn't call his blocking poor. Average and inconsistent are words that come to mind.

    I think Juszczyk is going to be a good player, but I agree that he may not be ready for prime time this year. I am very happy that the Ravens resigned Leach.

    I'd like to see Juice get some carries behind Leach on some short yardage plays.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.
