Yeah I kept in mind the whole game that this is preseason and its really just a practice game, but I guess I have just been missing football so long that I was a bit disappointed in my first taste after what feels like forever. I think Durant was probably playing with minimal effort - he wouldn't want to get hurt. Come July he will be back to his old self.
I agree that Dinwiddie is a nice insurance policy right now. He was arguably the best today (keeping in mind BC's effort and the receivers he had playing for him). I think if Dinwiddie keeps up the good work we won't have to worry too much if Durant gets outed for a bit. Hopefully he will become a solid back up.
Although it is true that Smith had scraps playing for him, I still think he made some bad decisions. But that could just be lack of experience. One thing I was kind of hoping to see was his mobility. He is supposed to be a fair runner.. I was thinking he might show that off a bit if his receivers weren't working out.
The defense was pretty interesting to watch. Barrin Simpson definitely has my confidence. Although we really didn't go after sacks as much as we could have, we were pretty effective against Lulay and Parrish. Lulay was surprisingly bland. Printers was still able to dance around us.
It was nice to see our receivers having no rust on them. Dressler seemed to be back to his old self, especially in the touchdown that was called back. He has his speed still. Rodriguez was fairly impressive, I can see him being a key player. I was excited to see Fairooz play until he went and banged up his ankle. If these injuries are prone we might be best to cut him.
I wanted to see more Dorsey, as he was used sparingly and what was shown wasn't much at all, if anything. Although I have to say our back up kick returners are fairly talented. I'm keeping an eye on Eley. He has some potential.
