– Saturday Night Previews –

Packers-St Louis

  • Optimism builds in Rams camp over the two years worth of acquisitions made by Coach Jeff Fisher-GM Les Snead…Biggest story has been WR-Kenny Britt-failed in Tennessee-seemingly growing up on the job under the ‘tough love’ of Fisher…Rams now 3-deep at running back….Defensive front looks very strong…Packers moving Julius Peppers to OLB from DE…S-Clinton Ha-Ha Dixon-Alabama seems to be on fast track to playh alot…RB-Eddie Lacy-James Shields-DuJuan Harris healthy.

Giants-Colts

  • Both had tough seige of injuries thru beginning of camp…Colts look very vulnerable at RB with loss of Vic Ballard for year, and uncertainty over longterm health of Ahmad Bradshaw-coming off neck surgery….Giants have running back problems with season ending injury to David Wilson and injury to Payton Hillis….New offensive package with Eli Manning has not kicked in…WR-Victor Cruz-no catches in 7-series so far…

Jets-Bengals

  • Rex Ryan really amped about his defensive front with 3-lst round picks there…but should be in panic mode about secondary…CB-Dee Milliner must step up to replace Revis Island….LBs seem to be growing….Bengals have had good injury-free camp so far…Andy Dalton, with new contract in pocket, seems to be settled…CB-Darqueze Dennard has been hit in camp so far.

  • Dallas was horrible on defense last year, then gave up nearly 400-yards to San Diego last week…Riddled by injuries they look terrible..CB-Morris Claiborne now down with shoulder separation….Tony Romo makes preseason debut coming off two back surgeries..Big story in camp has been play of S-Ahmad Dixon for Boys…Ravens raving about DE-Tim Jernigan explosiveness since being moved from DT…LB-CJ Mosely pushing for starters job.

Bills-Steelers

  • EJ Manuel had strong week at QB…Bills seem really deep at skill position but questions about pass protection still out there…Defensive front seven seems to be getting stronger….Steelers say they will pound ball, return to Pittsburgh football, but didn’t happen last week with Bell-Blount combiantion…Big question how much playing time does Troy Palomalu get or is he being phased out?

Dolphins-Bucaneers

  • QB-Mike Glennon pushing to be fulltime starter in new Lovie Smith offense…Lovie benches 2-OL after terrible grades in last weekend game….Miami OL must improved to protect Ryan Tannehill…WR-Mike Wallace-out with hamstring the last two week-says he will play…Rookie WR-Jarvis Landry pushing for much more playing time..RB-Knowshon Moreno may be a week away from getting into game-post knee surgery. . .

Falcons-Texans

  • Will have to see how much improvement Houston makes after terrible opening game in the Bill O’Brien era…he blew out running backs, changed starters, but has had limited practice time with key players on offense (Foster-Johnson)….Giving QB-Ryan Fitzpatrick a vote of confidence after just one week of preseason seemed to be a panic move….Falcons have retooled defense…and are still waiting-hoping no more injuries to Julio Jones-WR and RB-Steven Jackson.

Cardinals-Vikings

  • QB-Carson Palmer raving about 2nd year playbook of Coach Bruce Arians…Big Red look awesome on offense…Vikings still trying to find right people in defensive front thought LBs look excellent….Teddy Bridgewater-QB had a rocky week in practice, 3-interceptions in one afternoon of work…speed of game and his reads bothering him.
