“NFL preseason-Some good-Lots bad”

-0-

Opening weekend of the NFL preseason. A few good performances, and a lot of really bad football. The NFL should be embarassed with the quality on the field, but they won’t say so, just take your money.

My scorecard.

BAKER MAYFIELD…what a start for the Browns…(221P-2TD)…moved the pocket…maintained progressions down the field…amazingly accurate with pressure all around…very composed..very impressive.

SAQUON BARKLEY…Giants running back rips off 39-yard run…..shifty…broke tackles…great cutback steps…pretty impressive in brief cameo appearance.

LAMAR JACKSON…Two games in for Ravens, just (11-28) passing…inaccuarate….scrambles first-not comfortable in pocket…not handling pressure.

SAM DARNOLD…Jets rookie really played well (96P-1TD) stayed in pocket-made strong throws.

JOSH ROSEN…Cardinals rookie had to scramble a lot…winged a lot of passes…unfair to judge playing with 3rd string…athletic-not very big though…went (6-13) 41Y-passing under duress.

ANDREW LUCK….1st outing in 19-months-went (6-9) took some hits made some plays….young OL did well.

RYAN TANNEHILL…coming off 2nd knee operation wasn’t around long enough to show much (4-6) 32Y.

BROCK OSWEILER….same in Miami as in Denver (10-21) not much there in terms of consistency.

CAM NEWTON…didn’t do much in new Norv Turner offense but it’s early.

ROBERT GRIFFIN III…now played two games (148Y) passing and playing well as Baltimore backup.

NATHAN PETERMAN…Bills rookie threw 5-picks in first NFL start-never started again…first preseason game (9-10)-not bad.

RASHAAD PENNY….Tough first game for Seattle…(8C-16Y) rushing-not much offensive line help.

DERRIOUS GUICE….Season already over-torn knee ligament in first NFL preseason game for Redskins-tough blow for him..

CHRIS WARREN…Virtual unknown, son of Seahawks RB, good debut game for Jon Gruden-Raiders (86Y) rushing.

MASON RUDOLPH….Good first game for rookie from Oklahoma State (121Y) passing in 3-way battle for backup QB-job.

SHAQ GRIFFEN…Seahawks rookie everywhere on field making plays..9-solo tackles..enormous feel good story-athlete playing with just 1-hand after child-hood disease claimed left hand.

CODY KESSLER…Cleveland refugee (139P) 2TD in first outing in Jacksonville.

DESHONE KIZER-BRETT HUNDLEY….Packers backkup QBs combined for (243Y) passing.

PAT MAHOMES…..not much for Chiefs rookie starting QB and heir apparent to Alex Smith …5-completions-33Y.

CHAD KELLY….takes firm control Broncos backup QB job (177-2 Tis) in Denver blowout loss.

KIRK COUSINS….goes (4-4) TD in Vikings easy win.

CASE KEENUM…Denver got 1-completion…5Y-passing in only series.

GENO SMITH….Wild first game for Chargers (218P) with TD-pick-fumble-3 sacks and 43-run.

CARDALE JONES…Maybe make him Chargers TE…(50P) and very erratic throwing ball….looks too mechanical

SEAN MANNION….Rams 3rd year QB goes (3-13) in horrible loss to Baltimore.

CONNOR COOK…That was a good (141Y) passing day for Raiders.

TAYSOM HILL…A combined (124Y) passing-running for Saints for ex-BYU-QB.

TYLER BRAY (181Y) 1TD passing…second strong outing in Bears camp for ex-Chiefs backup.

CHARGERS…Really ugly loss….4-turnovers-4 sacks allowed-15 penalties for 155-yards….missed field goal…allowed 2-big kick returns

RAMS….Started all backups-got blown out…didn’t compete very much in bad loss in Baltimore…
