    Faulk was a bit dissapointing too.

    And GB kept 8 starters on defense on the bench, so that opening drive was against 3 starters and 8 backups :(

    Seriously....lol. Penalties and getting smoked! Sounds like a complete Titan secondary game.... some things just are hard to change.

    hopefully vrabel makes em run 20 miles... not only will it help with mental aspect of penalties --- but give all those hamstrings a long endurance stretching.

    Sorry to hear that. I couldn't get game- my family surprised me with a birthday dinner.

    Anyway- that's a disappointing surprise. Falk was solid at the TC I attended. Lead his WR's with great accuracy the entire session. Maybe the speed of the pre-season game had his timing off.

    Sadness. I thought he would definitely contribute.

    To be fair, we were missing some key players on O too.

    Davis, Matthews, Walker

    That's a great point - Conklin was out too. For an offense missing 4 of their regular starters I think that opening drive was encouraging.

    I thought Batson and Ross stood out the most from the group of WRs battling for the 5th/6th spot. Did anyone notice that play near the end of the game (2nd to last possession maybe) where Ross had his man beat by 3 or 4 steps and Falk not only underthrew him by like 5 yards, it went out of bounds by like 5 yards too. It's like he threw the ball up as high as he could. One of the worst passes I've ever seen. What makes it even worse was seeing St. Brown out there making plays for GB at WR and knowing he was still on the board when we took Falk.

    Backup DBs were really bad but most won't make the team (Gafford, Hurst).. Webb and Lewis have a chance.

    Lots of penalties for backup OL (Pamphile, Marz, Sua'Filo)

    New uniforms are sexy

    I'm glad we picked up Gabbert and dumped Cassel, he looks like he could step in if need be. Landry looked good as well!
