Being a fan can be a pathetic existence. But, gee, didn’t Dak look good in that pre-game throwing session? He did, actually. So, I will take heart.
No shortage of heart from the Texans. For the second straight week, they just played harder than their opponent. Understand, they are still vectored toward a 4-13 regular season, but David Culley has already elevated that team’s culture.
But the Proctors of the Preseason? Your Baltimore Ravens. Nineteen straight preseason victories? Last franchise that did that was the Lombardi Packers from 1959 to 1962. The Ravens appear to take genuine pride in their streak. Quirky, but kinda cute. (Did I just use the word “cute”?)
Certain teams really do throw off a pre-season vibe on their way to something great. I’m getting that feeling from the Bills.
Mitchell came back to Soldier Field. Mitchell sliced and diced his old team. Mitchell appeared to enjoy it.
Andy Dalton wasn’t having nearly as much fun. And now Bears fans are clamoring for Justin (Strawberry) Fields. I understand the buzz. The Kid is an impressive and exciting athlete. The Kid also has absolutely no idea what he’s doing yet. Nagy would be wise to stay the course with Red, at least through the first half of the season.
Yeah, I saw those throws Zach Wilson made. I also see those skinny little shoulders. Don’t tell me that’s not a problem. See, “Rosen, Josh.”
That didn’t look good for Falcons backup QB A.J. McCarron. No contact on the play, but now apparently no right ACL. The sport sucks sometimes. Wishing him the best.
Mike McCarthy says there is now urgency in deciding on a back-up QB. In other words, he’s in a “Rush.” Hell, I don’t know. But right now, Cooper Rush does appear to be able to push the ball downfield a little more than Garrett Gilbert can. Cowboy fans had just better hope they don’t see either one of them once the regular season starts.
Hey, Sha’Carri Richardson. Dial down the ‘tude, willya? There, I said it.
And, hey, Manny P. No mas, man.
But, hey, Dak really did look good in that pre-game, non-contact throwing session, so…
