    They probably need to evaluate some defensive players anyway.

    I apologize if this has been brought up in this thread or another but why hasn't LaQuan Williams been getting a better look for the 3rd receiver spot? Has he been that bad in practice? The times I've seen him in games (the 1st preseason game and his time @ WR the year before last) he's looked pretty good.

    Fair enough - and I get that too (the fly by night posters comment). But there has to be a balance. I guess it's whether we;re seeing something simply as complaining for the sake of it, or if they have a valid point for doing so.

    IMO, I felt there is, but certainly not to the point of throwing the towel in or anything.



    Anyway, it seems what I thought from previous weeks is true - timing and chemistry is a big issue for the first team offense. And we're certainly seeing the result of the offseason for both sides of the ball (losing our targets in Bolding and Pitta) and the addition of those defensive players. Basically, really good on one side, and a 'wait and see' (at best, imo) for the other. At least thus far. Who knows, this may all be a rope-a-dope.

    ALso, how did that kick to McLellan go down? Was it completely unprovoked or what?

    It's definitely prudent to give him a concussion exam. Hopefully he didn't get one and is fine.

    TE battle:

    Shiancoe helped himself
    Clark isn't on the same page as Flacco
    Furstenberg didn't do anything to make himself stand out

    Of course, I don't see the film, so maybe the coaches are looking for something fans don't see.

    Gotcha didn't know if that had a factor or not. Thanks for clearing that up

    Running away from John Simon's side.

    That is a good thing.

    Ok that about does it, pretty good practice for us, just need to cut down on the big screwups, and then force some ourselves (with this defensive unit that should be doable).

    Also: looks like no major injuries. so there's that. I hope Captain Munnerlyn's wrist is okay.

    Have you ever heard of the Salary Cap? Heap and Mason were cap casualties. If their cap status was the same as Doss they would have remained on the team. Doss makes the team unless another vet is brought in
