    I also thought Sean Spence looked terrific.

    Ramon Foster is out of shape and slower than ever... remember an Oline is only as good as its weakest link.

    Josh Mauro looks like a young Aaron Smith (with a smaller head of course).

    Mike Mitchell looked a lot slower than I anticipated on that 73 yard run by the Giants. I kept waiting for him to run down the RB but he lost ground.

    Howard Jones was impressive both on STs and at linebacker.

    Thomas can't play nose tackle. McLendon better stay healthy.

    Shamarko Thomas looked good.

    Chris Carter was impressive in his pass rush.

    Poole was impressive on STs

    I agree that McCullers looks like he has some real potential. He looks very athletic and well built (not fat) for a man of his size. The only problem is he loses leverage when he looks to find the ball... He may be just too tall to anchor the NT position.

    Dangerfield looked good.

    What happened to Derek Moye? I don't understand why his stock has fallen so. I like the kid and think he had a really solid rookie campaign.

    Moye? He was always a penny stock. He had something like 3 catches last year. Hard to fall further than that and stay on the team (which he will not).

    Preseason 1 game - My thoughts

    Moye is tall and did not drop everything thrown his way. That was enough to make him popular last year in TC. Thats about it though. He is not a good blocker, only has decent hands, is not really fast and is not a good routerunner. He is just tall, which we needed last year.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Again, Moye had about three catches last season and dropped a sure TD against B'more. I think his popularity came from A) He played at Penn State; B) the guy who never plays is often a hero of the fans, like a backup QB; and C) fans also like the training camp heroes, those guys who played great against the future Wal-Mart employees in pre-season games.

    You guys are a tough crowd... Moye did a good job to make the 53 yard roster last year... but he was ahead of Justin Brown last year and did nothing last year to change that... I think you guys just don't like big White receivers... There, I said it... Weegie Thompson anyone.
