Both were solid. It looks like they are sticking with Holmes.
He was playing at 305. He looks a little bigger now. Corey would be a good role model of Hagemen.
The kids have been awesome. V. Jackson pushed off on that TD. Robert Alford made a nice deflection on another pass to Jackson and he passed a receiver over to Kemal Ishmael that led to his interception.
He did have fumble while fighting to get to the end zone.
Yes, Corey was a terror with 4 tackles for losses. Team is looking for play makers and he made some plays. They are starting to work out the kinks in the defensive line rotation.
They did that with Roddy in the exhibition season. He can do that and run crossing routes.
They tried to run Steven Jackson outside a couple times on long and slow developing stretch plays. Perhaps to keep the defense honest.
Hagemen played 22 snaps (37 percent of the defensive snaps against the Bucs).
We did hear Osi's name last night! He'sworking hard. Good for him. Don't know what's going on with Hageman. We'll ask coach today.
Yes, they need to use him like the Eagles use Darren Sproles.
No, the Bengals rock! Even with an average @QB. They are going to do that to a lot of people this year. The better team won that game.
Coach Smith didn't give us an update. He's the official injury person. Perhaps he will at 2:30 today. But he doesn't have to give an injury report until next Wednesday. He sometimes likes to hide injuries from the opponents like he did with Roddy's hamstring.
Jake Matthews played 75% of the snaps on offense (50 of 67) and 27 % of the special teams snaps (9).
They can if they keep improving and making plays.
We'll talk to Coach Smith at 2:30 today and get an update on Harry Douglas and Roddy White, hopefully.
The defense is reconstruction project. They took some steps in the right direction last night. Corey Peters, Stansly Maponga and Jonathan Massaquoi must continue to improve. Peters had a strong game. Kemal Ishmael also made a play.
Got to run. Come back on Friday. Coach Mike Smith is talking tonight around 8:10 p.m. and we have open locker room from 8:15 p.m. to 9 p.m. So we'll have some late post up tonight from Flowery Branch.
They tried a GRITZBlitz and got burned for a 76-yard touchdown. If you blitz you better get to the quarterback.
