Week 3 Preseason Discussion Thread
 
Two. More. Weeks.

Two things I will be looking at from the Pats game this evening is how the interior offensive line holds up against Suh and Fairley and whether or not the pass rush can sustain against the Lions offensive line.

Svitek looks like he will be starting at RG due to injuries with Cannon and Connolly so he probably won't get a better test than a half + against these DTs.

Expecting a big game from Chandler Jones against Riley Reiff

I wish the Bears weren't playing the Raiders. The third game is the most important. I'd rather have our O-Line tested by a team like Baltimore or Houston rather than playing the worst team in the league.

crunch time for a lot of guys to step up and get their spot as a WR for the Ravens should be interesting.

I'll be watching the Titans defense, now is the time they should be changing up some looks, and running non-base D.

Greg Williams said in an interview that they've really just been running basic concepts and not their actual scheme as to not tip too much off, but in this weeks game they will show some more. Hopefully this is true and not just him trying to defend how the D has played.

On offense, I will be watching the run game, Jake Locker and the receivers. Jake Locker had a great game last week, but his WRs came up short for him (would have finished 15 of 20 for 150ish yards and possibly a td). Particularly looking at how Kenny Britt plays and Damian Williams.

RAVENS/WIZARDS/ORIOLES 08-22-2013 11:46 AM

I like that we are playing the Panthers tonight!! With our new speed on defense I want to see how we handle a big and fast QB. Also WR/TE battles should be fun to watch. Does anyone think we will keep Clark and Shianco?

I will probably watch, if only because it's the Bears and something to watch. But ya, I'm really not taking anything away from this game which sucks. All that I can hope for is that Cutler throws a pick so that there's a flood of people keeping up the Cutler sucks argument for lulz.

I will be holding a candle lit vigil for Da'Rick Rogers to have a big game and earn himself a roster spot.

K Train 08-22-2013 01:03 PM

He'll be a CFL player...hes a crazier Adarius Bowman

Halsey 08-22-2013 02:28 PM

Didn't Da'Rick stand over a guy and trash talk him on the first day of Bills' training camp, or something like that? Brilliant. Way to make a good first impression. Someone forgot to tell him he was a UDFA.

Yeah he caught a TD over Brooks and stood over him. Marrone promptly chewed his ass out for about 10 minutes. After that, Marrone said he was really improving in camp but since the preseason started, nothing to note of in the games.

Sometimes....I hate us.

The Buffalo News has heard from "multiple sources" that "considerable animosity" remains between FS Jairus Byrd and the Bills.
This meshes with what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday night. Rapoport mentioned that "ill will" remains between Byrd and the Bills, and the expectation is that it will take "several weeks" for Byrd to get into playing shape. Byrd plans to be "extra careful" as he works his way back from sitting out the entire training camp as he refused to sign the franchise tender. Byrd wants to be the highest-paid safety in the league, while the Bills feel he is top-five.

niel89 08-22-2013 03:26 PM

Just ******* pay the man

K Train 08-22-2013 03:42 PM

i wouldnt pay him highest in the league

Ness 08-22-2013 04:05 PM

I don't think anyone is going to make Byrd the highest paid safety in the NFL. Weird, because I actually would throw more money at him than I would Dashon Goldson.

Fairley has his head on straight, he's playing like his Auburn days.

Notredameleo 08-22-2013 06:33 PM

Scotty D 08-22-2013 07:15 PM

Calvin out again. Lions offense won't do anything tonight.

Thompkins the only one doing anything for us on offense.

Jvig43 08-22-2013 07:42 PM

Hold onto the ball rookie.

Scotty D 08-22-2013 07:43 PM

I say Fairley has his head on straight and he picks up two penalties in the first 5 minutes.

Cant believe they havenīt paid him yet. He is an elite player, just ****** pay him.

Scotty D 08-22-2013 07:56 PM

Damn, every pass to Thompkins.
