Jyles was the best looking of the QB's today. Second would be Bell IMO. Durant couldn't hit water standing in a boat the first half of practice. Looked indecisicive and passes were all over. He is owed the chance at this point but I would say if we are all about production at this point, Jyles looks like he could do all right in there too. Let Tate go already. Unreal. A couple of times he held onto the ball for 6-7 seconds watching guys running though the middle open and delivered the ball late. Takes too long and would get killled in a game if he plays like he practices.
Cates looked good and was running fine. DJ is not gonna be back soon or at all 2 weeks is a maybe I bet its more like 3-4.
Matt looked like he could play this week. Took a few breathers but did well in there when he was. Fantuz looked good too but seemed to be sitting out more often than Matt, maybe that was just me though too.
Shultz got in a little dust up. Couldn't see who with but nice to know guys are a little edgey after the last one.
Why do people not talk about Frazier more. From all the practices I have seen this year, he looks the best of the group. NOw don't get all wadded up in the rear all you ED lovers. But Frazier is our best DB from what I have seen this year at practice and he is rarely the guy getting beat over and over agian in games ( hello Omar) Heard also has always been impressive too. I like him and hope we can get him in the lineup and starting on a regular basis in the very near future.
Geno did a bang up job at centre. Snaps were fine, protection was good. This group is the least of the worries right now.
A little worried about how the D line shakes out this weekend. WHo is all healthy enough to play end and be in the rotation. A couple of suprises for Porter this weekend to test his ability to read a D pre-snap. Lotsa jumping around and guys flying around in the box pre-snap. Not sure who went and dropped at the snap as it looked like everyone changed spots in about a second or two.
This game is Cates all the way, the more we use him the better our chances. Just hope he holds up. DD doesn't look like he is gonna come out of the gate flying anyway and till he calms down Cates has to shoulder the load.
And it was way frickin' colder than I thought it was.
