    Preseason to me is just entertainment, and see how players show. Hence why I like watching the rookies. The coaches are just putting players in situations to see what they do and have no bases on what the opponent is running so you could end up with a bad play call, but you want to see how the players react.
    Ya, I am not sure what defense they called, so maybe he was doing the right thing, if thats the case then the coaching staff called the wrong defense or something, because that play was going to be huge had he not fumbled.

    • Joe Mays better be a beast / Nate Irving made a statement

      I know this was only the first game of preseason but with the way Nate Irving played last night and him being behind Mays in the dept chart, i can only imagine that he is clearly outplaying him.

      So he better be a beast.




      edit: i just saw on the dept chart irving is behind Von at strong side ?

Both Oz and Weber look WAY better than Hanie. Trust me, if we put Weber on the PS he is as good as gone. Every time he gets in the game he looks pretty good. I think we need to see Oz for sure at the 2nd spot next week to see what he does against 2nd teamers and then go forward from there. So, if you believe Hanie is really our 2nd best qb on the team, then convince me.....
          and how often has that been? Do you mean last year when he threw 1 pass?

          • Yes Nate Irving was moved to Sam Linebacker. Mike Mohamed is the direct backup at Mike Linebacker and Keith Brooking will be competing primary with Mohamed to be the backup Mike.

            DJ Williams is the starting Will, Wesley Woodyard is the backup, Danny Trevathan is Woodyard's backup.

            But I agree, Nate Irving played lights-out yesterday aside from one play where he played the pass very poorly and allowed a 9 yard completion.

            • I agree.

              But I said several times last night that Joe Mays has got to be doing something right as an NFL linebacker if he's holding off Irving.

              That's a compliment to both Irving and Mays. Heck, Irving had to move positions because that position was locked down by Mays so hard.

              Irving has that body type and stature you just want in your MLB...and he seemed pretty disciplined out there for having gotten such limited action last season. I think he can break out of his shell...he might be suffering from Rahim Moore syndrome.

              Hopefully he can use the rest of the preseason to continue to build confidence.

                  Well that is the thing with preseason coaches really don't call to outsmart the other team they are just calling plays to see what the players do, and how they react if they are in a bad play. That is another reason I really don't care what happens during the preseason as it is just entertainment to me because of that.

                  • Irving deserves a gold star for his effort last night he really showed up which was great to see.

                    • Why did they move him he looked like a true MLB last night ?

                        The defense you saw last night is not the defense that will be playing during the season. We barely saw any of the starters last night and they played against a Cutlerless, Forte less offense that has the worst oline in football.

                        You guys can be happy about the dominant win as I'm sure horseman is but not let's get carried away on what we think it means for the season.

                        You can get excited but last nights game gave 0 indication of how this season will play out.
                        We're celebrating because it's football season and we're excited. That and, if you've played or coached, you know that you take each game one at the time. Doesn't matter how good or bad the opponent is. This time, we dominated.

                        I don't give a crap if it's a scrimmage --- I want to win and dominate. We did last night.

                        It's just unnecessary for people to keep condescendingly telling those of us who are excited that this is preseason. WE KNOW IT'S PRESEASON BRO.

                        Again, I'm perfectly aware that you have to take results with a grain of salt. Doesn't mean you can't be excited. I don't keep myself from being enthusiastic for fear of being let down later. That's a crappy way to live.

                        Have a beer. Football's here.

                        • He was all over the place last night. I love the way he plays. Looks like he beefed it up too.

                          I know he was listed as SAM back on the depth chart but I thought he was lined up at Middle last night quite a bit. If he keeps playing like that they might have to consider moving him back and at least spelling Mays if not replacing him. No sense in him wasting away on the bench behind Von.

                          • Yeah he was a beast yesterday. He was just all over the place.

                            I say on Twitter yesterday someone said Irving looked better in the game than he did during the practices. He probably hasnt done that good during practices and the reason why hes not starting.

Our defense in depth look really good across the board! ill say this , we will be top 10 on defense by the end of the year!!
                              I am looking forward to our D this year.

                              We are going to have a serious pass rush, especially if Wolfe can continue as he has.

                              My question, is how are we going to fare against the run. I *think* we'll be at least average there, provided Warren can regain form, and both he and Vickerson can stay healthy.

                                Totally legitimate point. You know the coaches are hoping Hillman takes that role, though.

                                Not saying he will--as milehighguy said he could end up sucking, granted--but I'm hoping he isn't stripped of the opportunity to by giving reps to Moreno...
