Hello again TST!! I'd like to thank Douglas M for inviting me to do this again. I'd also like to thank the readers/commenters for their participation too. It's a tremendous honor to do this. The preseason is finally coming to an end. As you may know, the cut to 75 players was done on Monday. The cut to the final 53 is on Friday and every game is played on Wednesday and Thursday. I watched a little more of the preseason games this past weekend as week 3 is the full dress rehearsal for most teams (except the Eagles, who trotted out the B squad because they play the Brownies for real soon). My thoughts on the games and subsequent cuts will be posted after the jump. This will be a full time weekly feature from here on out until the Super Bowl. As usual, you can ask me anything from what's my favorite type of car, color, celebrity crush, ideal woman, college football, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, draft talk, and everything in between. I'll try my best to answer them in a prompt manner as they come in. I'm also taking suggestions on how to improve this feature of TST as the time flies by. As with every post, you can contact me via these mediums:
(Note: if you email me questions/comments/suggestions, please use the subject heading of 'TST Mailbag' when you do so I know who it is and please leave a comment in the email if it's OK or not to use your name when I post the email questions on here after the jump. Thanks!)
Thoughts on the Rams game/preseason/cuts: I admit that I was in and out of the house during the Rams game Saturday night. With that said, It was a very pedestrian but solid effort from the 1st stringers. Once again, I'm going to reiterate that Fisher will regret passing up an OL prospect for Brockers. Captain Checkdown err Sam Bradford showed a little promise to improve this glaring deficiency of his. It looks like Fisher's love of small school prospects has paid off moderately in Pead, Richardson, Quick, and the kicker. Releasing Danario Alexander was a surprise to me as the Rams have little depth (i.e experience at the position). The risk of counting on so much from the rookie WRs (especially ones from smaller schools) is a huge gamble. I see Janoris Jenkins as an Asante Samuel/Dunta Robinson type of CB i.e it's really good when they're on but when they whiff, automatic touchdown the other way (if there is no safety help over the top).
Bonus thoughts: The recent trade for Wayne Hunter was a whole lot of meh. A type of deal that the Red Sox and Dodgers recently pulled off except without the fanfare. Both parties really needed a change of scenery after being turrible and beaten out by lesser known players at their position. Hunter was very classy about his tenure with the Jets too. Hopefully both players can make something of themselves in their new homes.
Moar Bonus thoughts: College and NFL are almost here!! The long wait is over! And just for you, dbcouver, Russell Wilson is awesome and was a great choice by the Seachickens lol. I hope everyone enjoyed this long opus of a fanpost! I look forward to your comments! Thanks!
