I would put BJ Coleman in that list as well. I thought he looked better than Harrell. More poise, better arm, good decision making and worked through his progressions. He moved well in the pocket to but extra time.

I really like how he really hits that last step on his drop back and then moves forward. Harrell seems to get to that last step and looks tentative with his read and delivery.

Johnny Jolly is good.

Micah Hyde is good.

Can you keep Ross as a return only guy ?

Impressed on how this team bounced back from the Arizona game.

Play-action is back. Cool

PR/KR along with playing on most if not all ST units is pretty telling where his stock is. As the 5th WR, he likely would not see the field much in that role.

Nelson, Cobb, Jones, Finley, Boykin along with a running game. I just don't see MM going five wide that much this season. Last year late in the season, he did see action as a WR ahead of Driver.

I think he is the primary returner along with being a key contributor on ST units, the 5th WR slot is a 3rd in job duties.

So many options...
Finley making some plays, Crosby bouncing back, Boykin looking like he belongs, Miles White throwing down, Hyde doing well, Lacy living up to expectations. Still gotta pull for the fat man who played his rear off. JOLLY FTW!!!

I didn't see the game, and I didn't see any comments about the right tackle competition. How did Barclay do?

Oh, and my first thought: "Why the HELL is Rodgers still on the field in the 2nd Quarter?!?!?1!"
2nd thought: "Rams announcers were dismal. They had literally no clue. AT ALL."
3rd thought: "I know it's only preseason, but damn it feels good to win!"

Hyde = Heyward Jr.
Jolly would push Pickett for his spot if he had more stamina.
Walker vs Gillett vs Ross
Bostick cant block but I'd take him over Williams/Taylor offensively.
Coleman had some mistakes but showed nice potential
Harrell played to his max potential today and hopefully someone can beat that.
Run blocking for short yardage is terrible
Some nice pressures against there 2/3's primarily Mulumba/Palmer
A few field goals from Crosby/GT didnt change my mind at all
Thumbs up to no injuries and no more replacement ref's!!

I don't see Gillett being anything. It's just Walker vs Ross, and maybe Dorsey vs White.
I'll still take Taylor over Bostick. ST and blocking beat offensive potential at this point.

Did you guys see that play-action stuff? I thought "setting up the pass with the run" was just a myth.

The PA to Finley over the middle was a thing of beauty. I said in the "In-Game" thread that Lacy might just become Finley's best friend. The things Lacy can set up for the TE seam routes are something I havent seen around here in a Chmura.
