I dunno, I find most of them are civil and willing to talk football. There are a few bad apples but you'll find those in any forum...

Defense holds but we're pinned deep in our end on the ensuing punt.

Run defense looks solid, I'll say that for Thorpe.

Annnd Porter brought down for no gain or sack on two consecutive plays. This is awful. I feel sorry for any fan who paid money to attend this game.

Whyte is the league's worst punter.

Porter doesn't seem to have changed. Hangs on to the ball way too long, then tries to scramble instead of throwing it away. :thdn:

So why are we in such a hurry to retire Calvillo again? Both our backups have been several deep rich shades of terrible tonight.

Wow, burned on a zone read for like a 20-yard gain. This is sad.

RTP call for another 15 yards against. Lovely.

Screen pass gets Hamilton to our 2-yard line. I can't watch this garbage anymore. One team actually looks ready to play. The other team is sleepwalking. What's worse is even individual players aren't looking good. I don't care about losing the game per se but getting owned and humiliated like this is not acceptable, particularly not on home turf.

2nd half dismal to say the least.

Everything has been dismal with the exception of Calvillo's two-play TD series to start the game. Everything. Not one unit looks like it has a clue about what to do or where to be. ST gives up a return TD. The defense is getting sliced by backups. The offense is pitiful. Lord knows I wasn't expecting anything great, and I'd even have been fine with a loss, but to get blown out like this at home? Should never happen, not even in preseason.

This game has raised a red flag for me. It is now going to be crucial for the team to bounce back in the final preseason game. We need proof that the new coaches can have the players ready to execute at the highest level.

Ok, so things ended a bit better. At least Porter was able to move the chains and post some majors. But still LOTS of work to do in all three phases.

You have to think Porter just put himself in the driver's seat for the no. 2 QB spot with his late-game heroics tonight. If nothing else, he can sling the ball down the field.

Sure hope Clowney's okay; did not look good for him being wheeled out.

This went pretty much exactly as I expected. This was an organized scrimmage with a paid gate.

I feel Porter, Carrier and Rhodes won their battles and clearly deserve to be on this team.

Only certainty as far as a negative is we need a punter.

He can also get a first down with his feet and he's extremely tough. Josh throws a pretty ball and is worth the investment but he's "robotic" and fairly unidimensional.

I think Clowney got a pinched nerve. Hoping anyway.

I think what we did see however is Hawkins changeover offensively with more a vertical approach and utilization of middle of field deeper routes.
