What do you guys think so far?
I know Skylar Thompson is looking good, but so did Reid Sennet, David Fales, Sage Rosenfels, and more. I’m sorry, and I hope I am wrong, but seeing a backup QB play nicely in a practice game against 7th-string defensive players does not excite me.
Lots of Gesicki trade rumors floating around, but I don’t think it will happen. I certainly don’t want it to happen. The 49ers’ George Kittle is not an All-Pro because of his devastating blocking record. No, tight ends in this offense are meant to catch passes. I think it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors going on here. I hope!
Waiting for the debut of Hill and Armstead, but I’m actually pleased to NOT see them out there. The risk of a devastating injury is not worth it for a practice game. Wait until week one, and I’ll be content with that.
Defense continues to look good in spurts. No depth at CB is an issue, with Jones already hurt and X Howard typically missing a few games a year for injuries. Getting the pass rush to play at a ferocious level will be vital, because our DBs might not hold up during 17 long weeks.
I’m curious about punt return duties. This intrigues me more than most people. Do we keep Bowden on the roster for this purpose? Use Hill and risk injury?
Also, this just in… Stephen Ross has NOT screwed the Dolphins this week!! That’s progress!
Always curious what you guys think about all this…
