it’s the biggest non-story and a classic case of Coach Speak that means absolutely nothing

Its a non story now, but if we get to end of preseason and he is still not getting reps with the 1's then it becomes an issue. Offensive and Defensive Lineman learn by doing in NFL. He should be somewhere on the OL starting Week 1, because that was one of the worst units in NFL last year.

Mayfield certainly looks more confident than Darnold

Good thing they didn't decide this weeks ago and give the guy more first team reps in practice.

do you really think that it matters at all seeing as how there’s nearly a month left of practices and 2 more preseason games before Week 1?

I do think it matters. Every rep counts, especially for rookies/new additions. I think this is just another example of Rhule being a bad coach. This "oh they gotta earn it" bullshit is ridiculous. They're all professionals, they all know a top 10 draft pick at a position of need is going to be the starter over the same bunch of guys who were terrible last year, just like they all know Mayfield is going to be the starter over Darnold. Not getting those guys the maximum reps at their positions is just piss poor coaching.

I don't think preseason games really matter much, definitely not nearly as much as practice. They're really just another way to make a buck and also give some reps to the fringe roster type players.

I think the vast majority of it was dumb coach speak that didn’t really take anything away from his development

he’s not going to be a worse player because he wasn’t named the starter until the middle of camp

Ickey almost got Darnold blowed up on the TD pass when the defensive end flew past him. I guess a few more reps in practice would've eliminated the learning curve from the ACC to the NFL.

listen justin is worried about ickey's missed snaps not being the day one starter

snaps that could probably be measured in single digit percentage of his total count by week two

Why the fuck is PJ taking starters reps in our second preseason game

This dude won’t even be on the roster in 2 weeks

Because starters aren't playing? And the coaches insist that Darnold is still battling for the #1 spot and is not #2.

I think the battle between Corral and Walker is a lot closer than the one between Mayfield and Darnold and Ickey vs the world for LT. Doesn't matter now as Walker is QB3 by default. But it would have been interesting if Corral hadn't have gotten hurt. Would they have found a trade partner to unload Darnold on for pennies on the dollar and a significant amount of salary retention? My guess is yes.

seemed like the plan was Baker to start, Darnold as a one-year backup since nobody would want him for his salary, and Corral as the 3rd stringer who hopefully wouldn't have to play this season. PJ was going to be on another roster and still might.

Also we already have hekker and he can just do it all, including being backup qb

not sure how anyone could know who Joey Slye is, and not think it could be bad that an actual reliable kicker gets injured

[Edited on August 26, 2022 at 11:03 PM. Reason : maybe convert Hekker to kicker and sign Matt Barkley to punt]

I remember him in college. Mostly because it’s a unique name that’s hard to forget. I don’t know if he’s actually any good

I actually like Laviska, he was really productive at Colorado and has always seemed underused to me. Haven't watched any like 20 min videos to see why he was or wasn't worth the trade or not / if he was poorly utilized by the Jags, but I like it.

The real question to me is, who does this displace? Andre Roberts or Shi Smith seems likely to me. *Maybe* Zylstra, but Rhule likes his multi tool usage.

I think Smith has been good enough in preseason to solidify a roster spot, and he can return kicks/punts if necessary. The consensus seems like Moore, Anderson, Marshall and Smith will be on the squad, but you never know.

and I guess we'll keep Higgins as well since we brought him in and he has chemistry with Baker from CLE

The cowboys cut former Panthers QB of the future Will Grier (as well as the only other non-Dak qb on the roster so they only have 1 QB now.) Maybe they Panthers should sign him to compete for the starting job.

This is bad.

Best I can tell, it’s been 2 designed runs and 9 pass plays. Wtf.

Hey. We have a shaky OL, new QB on the roster who was pretty bad last year, and a really good RB. I think we should pass every time!

This team is such a joke. No identity on offense (and that’s across multiple QBs, multiple OCs). D is solid enough I guess but can’t tackle for shit today. And even a solid D wouldn’t matter with an O this bad. Just embarrassing.
