At least we don't have to worry about Chris Streveler taking up a roster space this year.
CS just won their game for the Jets over the Eagles. Took his team down the field in the final minute. A couple of good runs and a winning pass from about the ten (I'm guessing). A real happy guy according to the TV guys.

of couse we had the tale of two seasons last year. Obviously in september or october we would have destroyed the bungals.... but in december they would have destroyed us.

but it goes to show.... stay healthy, play consistent, and get a little luck...and instead of having a legendary collapse in the wc round ....maybe your playing in the super bowl.

we really were that close fellas.....
I’d like to agree with this assessment, I so would, but: 1) Joe Burrow studies film and 2) KK (enough said, eh?).

Some quick observations

Dortch is a lock. Andy is toast.

Hayes looks like a player at Guard. Arms like a gorilla.

Leccy Smith looked good at C.

McSorley is good depth. Guarantano looks like a good find for the PS.

Team discipline was much better. Very few penalties.

Nice game overall.

He should be on the field before Cameron Thomas at this point. He had a good preseason last year, got some plays in the regular season. He is faster and stronger.
He showed some good burst and he looks stout. I wouldn't be shocked to see him become a solid player. Smart guy (Duke) and solid athlete.

The DL played with far more energy than last year. I attribute that to coaching. For me, we made a big upgrade in DL coaching. Isabella will never get any credit, and that’s warranted, but if McSorley didn’t have a noodle arm, Isabella could have had a couple of long plays. And Dortch is legit. Lastly, we played with far discipline that expected for a preseason game.

It’s clear that Dortch is better than Isabella, but I also think he’s better than Wesley. I thought that before last night’s game, too.
I guess they will keep Wesley cause of his length but Dortch is the better player, gritty dynamic quick and has reliable hands
We have a good depth so I don't know how much snaps Dortch can have but he is also a Kr Pr
Imo the depth should be
Hopkins
Brown
Moore
Green
Dortch
Wesley
Curious to know if Moore will be used more down the field and in slant routes or basically like an extra rb catching 95% of his passes in the backfield which it probably means wasting his talent

Dortch is a monster & definitely better than Wesley. He also brings the explosiveness that Rondale possesses. And with Moore’s injury history concerns, Dortch becomes a great insurance policy. His ability to return punts also frees up Rondale to strictly be a WR threat.
