    I did not see the game but Shaun Hill going one-of-nine seems to be a little disappointing/disturbing!

    Sean Hill did not play well and he was putting Way, Way too much air under the ball. His throws looked more like punts.

    I'm not gonna blame much on the QBs. None of them had time to do anything. The o line was getting dominated all night long. Bradford had decent protection but the backups had no chance.

    Yup, and Davis seemed to have the worst of it. It was down right ugly. He didnt even get a chance to make a case for himself today with the constant sacks and pressure.

    When Fisher mentioned wanting Zack Martin right after drafting Robinson I kinda scratched my head. Tonight I saw why. Our depth is bottom feeder.

    Why didn't Bond play? I thought he was doing good in camp

    Ditto. Seemed like overkill at the time, now it seems like a brilliant strategy. Hopefully next draft they grab some linemen throughout the draft. I would not be surprised to see a few new faces after the cuts begin and they grab some players cut from other teams. Beside center and joseph, the depth is scary.

    I will say though, the point CoachO brought up, a few were played in positions they didnt play hardly, if any during camp. I believe thats what he said, if wrong my bad. I have a buzz going so yea.

    He did play and played fairly well with the second unit.

    They came in after the scoring drive. And played well into the 2nd half. Hooey was at RT. Bond - RG. Barnes - C. Robinson - LG. Person - LT

    He has only taken reps at RG throught out the past 2 weeks at camp. The problem was they asked a 299 lb Mike Person to play LG rather than leaving Robinson there. Person is much at OT. And now is officially the 3rd Center.

    I see why they put Robinson at LT. He's going to eventually be our LT so they wanted to see. I don't think he did to bad. He had the sack and 1 hurry. Besides that I think he was solid

    Yep, the guy moves freakishly fast for a 6'5" 330+ lb. guy. If Boudreau can truly coach him up, then we have an elite LT since Pace
