Im really hoping Matt Asiata can take ahold of the 3rd RB spot.

Also wanna see Blanton make a case for the final roster.

3 players I really want to see do well:

Joe Webb
Robert Blanton
Jordan Todman

Webb is starting right? If he does, and we play some starters, I think that could really help. Some people are so quick to write him off, but the dude just knows how to play when the pressure is on.

Todman and Blanton need reps. If they can make a few big plays, maybe the coaching staff decides to keep them on the 53 man roster, or atleast P.S.

Webb starts, but i dont think there will really be any starters who will play on either side. I think it will just be one of those games. This should be a good test for Webb though, he needs to show some solid progression.

i'll probably "watch" it on NFL.com and here at FF.

hope it's more than a JV scrub kind of game, but i doubt it will be.

Can't watch it live. Working at the college football opener at my alma mater (Go Mustangs!).

As for who's quarterbacking, I think I heard Leslie say Joe in 1st, Sage in 2nd, MBT in 3rd and 4th.

Players I will be watching:

Wright -- want him to nail down the punt return job
Blanton -- would like to see him perform well, gain backup spot
QBs -- obviously goes without speaking but I want to see him help the coaches out and run plays to try and separate with 2/3 WR we keep (Burton or Manny)

Even though both of our starters (I know ours for sure) are not playing tonight, here's to no injuries!

If you guys want, you can join us in our game thread too.

BTW, how's Percy doing for you guys? He's my favorite player in the NFL? Very Happy

Probably won't be paying too much attention to this game and will just have it on in the background. Will be watching who from the WRs, LBs, and DBs want to step up and make a case to make this roster.

Fine. You can tell they haven't really shown much of what he will be doing during the season. He'll get significant reps in the backfield, in motion, and more quick hitters; all of which they haven't shown during the preseason. He mostly just ran your standard route tree and made plays when the ball was there. With a special player like Percy, he'll see a much more expanded role once the year starts.

It'll be interesting to see how Burton, Todman, Cole and Blanton perform -- as well as Geoff Schwartz.

Obviously, coming out healthy is number one.

Funny. You only posted the 1st half points.

I'm gonna say we finish the game 147 to 23 (We'll allow them a safety at the end of the game).

(Here's to an injury free game!)
