Or they are going against a pretty damn good D line

I think it’s a little of both. We really need Morse healthy. Star destroyed Bodine a couple times.

Starting O-Line is watching from the sidelines tonight

The “starters” for this practice lol.  So pretty much everyone besides Morse. 

 

Ed Oliver’s effort level is very nice to see

This is the exact throw that made Johnny Manziel a college success.. The difference is he was throwing to the man giant Mike Evans, not the pre-pubescent Cole Beasley. They did a good job flipping the WR room, but there's still a size void there. Hopefully it's something we can add in the future.

Well that's one difference.  The other is in college, Manziel was throwing against college safeties. 

 

Can't do that in the NFL, even with Mike Evans.

 

Agree we could use size, but unless Williams stops double-clutching his balls, don't see it this season

 

PS man that sounds crude 😂😂

Tommy Sweeney is making this team. His name just fits in the blue collar feel of the team... Plus, we know he's kneecapped someone for the Irish Mob before...

Tommy Sweeney was amazing on Peaky Blinders.

 

And his grandfather is Arnold Palmer.

To be fair he has gotten away with several times last season a couple times to Ivory and once to McCoy and I think he had one he connected on today.

Mike Evens still does this sometimes though. He's a guy whose skillset would be a match made in heaven with Allen. Maybe they'll bomb hardcore and tear it all down and we'll get him in for a 5th rounder. :P

 

 

Yeah... That sounds like something you hear about the creepy co-worker getting diagnosed with and having to go to a mental facility....

If that wasn't a 4th down rep I'd be very surprised

I think he probably had a place on the practice squad at least coming in but he's definitely making a case not to risk leaving him there.

That's a good point... If it is fourth down, it's probably a better outcome than a punt with how our punters have been...

Missing the most important piece... Center.

Not like we have depth at the position anyways... I think it'll be Knox, Sweeney, Smith, and Kroft on pup. Then, when Croft is healthy, they will either send Sweeney to PS or get rid of Smith- those two seem redundant- I prefer Sweeney as he's got more potential and is a nice wildcard.

I don't see Sweeney and Smith as redundant at all. Sweeney is the type that can do everything pretty good and nothing extraordinary. Smith blocks extraordinary and is lousy at everything else.

Smith not going nowhere.  You don't guarantee $4.9M of a guy's contract if you might not keep him.

Hm. I guess I stand corrected- I thought Sweeney was a better blocker. 

 

Do we think Kroft is a lock? I don't see an odd man out and 5 TE's seem's heavy, especially if we keep DiMarco.
