NFL 2019 Training Camp & Pre-Season Thread

Giants rookie QB played well last night against the Jets....but it's only pre-season.

Now WTF is up with Antonio Brown? Hey, can't feel sorry for the Raiders....they knew what they were getting into signing this flake.

As for Il Divo, AB --

This is a ploy to get out of training camp.

I said it last year here, that Mahomes was the key to the 2018 season. https://prince.org/msg/10...?&pg=2

Now I think the key player to watch for 2019 is Jimmy Garoppalo. If he returns to form the Niners could be a legit threat. They were 6-2 before he went out IIRC.

Nah bro Jimmy G only played 4 games last season. The 49ers finished 4-12.

There was a reason they took Nick Bosa with the 2nd overall pick. lol

In other football news Steelers WR coach Daryl Drake passed away at age 62 early Sunday. sad

The team closed practice today in Latrobe, PA.

That's my bad -- he's 6-2 as a starter in SF. It'll be a while till I work myself into regular season shape. lol Still, Jimmy G to me is the player to watch.

Drake was known as one of the best coaches on any staff in the league and he helped make a lot of guys a lot of money. But more importantly, he was trusted and of high character. His loss is a blow in so many ways.

First of all, where are all the hot Steelers takes?!? Usually these threads are filled with them. Are you guys so happy y'all ditched Antonio Brown that you just can't stop dancing long enough to post giant Steelers logos? biggrin

Speaking of Antonio Brown - WTF? Here is a CLASSIC example of a very talented player whose loyalty breaks down this way:

Loyalty to Antonio Brown - 100%

Loyalty to team mates - 0%

Loyalty to team - 0%

If you're going to be part of a team, you have to be part of a team. Feel me?

Anyway, the biggest news of this preseason is, of course, the Houston Texans signing former Ole Miss quarterback Jordan Ta'amu to replace injured third-stringer A. J. McCarron. Jordan got in the game Saturday night, threw one pass, and completed it! He's already better than Brock Osweiler!

I doubt Jordan makes the team but he could make the practice squad, and maybe get on somewhere else. And speaking of guys who went from practice squad to team to starter and then blew everything - how's Chad Kelly doing?

Pretty well! Swag Kelly played a good game this weekend, leading the Colts to a score and putting up a 96.5 QB rating for the first two games. He's still third-string but given that Andrew Luck has been cursed by a voodoo doll, and Jacoby Brissett is the #2 guy, I wouldn't be surprised to see Kelly in a game. That is, after his 2-game suspension expires mid-September.

Antonio Clown is Oakland's problem now. Bell is also coming off as a diva, he will do so-so with the Jets

Damn right KPowers

I disagree with you on Bell being so so with the Jets.

I think the guy is going to be a beast. Sam Darnold looks like a capable starter.

I'm rooting for Bell except for when they play the Steelers. I will be rooting for the Steelers

to kick his ass. Bell however has my blessings to kick New England's ass.

Bell hasn't played in almost 2 years,he will be rusty. Jets offense is not as talent as when Bell was with the Steelers. I don't think he will have the same success he had in Pittsburgh with the Jets

Yes and no. Yes, the records don't mean anything. It does matter when it comes to evaluating players especially rookies. Most of all you don't want to see any of your players getting hurt. Plus you can try out plays to see what works and what doesn't. You'll see more attempts on 4th and 1 or more tries on 2 point conversions.

Seems to me that RBs can adjust more easily to a new offense than other skilled players can.

But you're right -- Bell won't have the luxury of stutter-stepping behind the Jets line. He'll be less productive but I'd still be surprised if he isn't in Pro Bowl form by midseason.

I've watched him in practice with the Jets. He has the same sick burst and acceleration. The Jets are so confident in him and their investment that he will not play in the preseason. You can't have total

duds on your offensive line but if you have at least 2 to 3 capable starters on the oline a good rb will make them look better. I always point to the Steelers 2009 Super Bowl winning with the shittiest offensive line in the league. It did hurt them eventually until they rebuilt the line. Bell will be fine. This dude wasn't a top 5 player for no reason.

Not doubting that he looks good in practice. A lot of players do.

And yes, he's proven himself time and time again that he can excel after missing time. But he hasn't taken a snap in 2 years.

And he'll be behind a worse offensive a less experienced QB, and surrounded by fewer perimeter weapons to keep defenses honest.

Like I said, I think he will be in Pro Bowl form this year, but maybe not at the outset. He could of course be All-Pro, but that would depend on whether Darnold has a good season to keep defenses from stacking the box to stop LBell.

I think the 2-year rust will show early, but the 2-year rest will help him get to Hawai'i again.

The only player that can stop Antonio Brown is Antonio Brown. He has the best feet of any

WR I've ever seen in football. He generally has DB's beaten at the line of scrimmage. He could

easily be in Jerry Rice company if he wasn't such a head case.

I 100% agree with that. The constant threatening to quit is tiresome and I'm glad he's no longer with the Steelers and now he's Oakland's problem. He won't win a Superbowl there. By the way that whole thing about wanting to use his old helmet and not wanting to use the new helmet, was it because the old helmet fit his big head???? lol

Colts QB Andrew Luck informs team he is retiring

9394160.jpg?fit=bounds&crop=620:320,offset-y0.50&width=620&height=320







Andrew Luck dropped a bombshell during the preseason.

The Indianapolis Colts quarterback is stunningly retiring from the NFL, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. Luck informed the team of his plans to walk away.

ESPN first reported the news.

Wild. Unreal. Crazy. Insane. Unbelievable. Nuts. Use whatever exclamatory word you want, it's a berserk story that dropped as the Colts were in the middle of their preseason game versus the Chicago Bears. As news leaked, TV broadcasts showed the QB on the sideline talking with backup-turned-starter Jacoby Brissett and other teammates.

The 29-year-old former franchise signal-caller has dealt with a plethora of injuries the past several seasons, including a shoulder issue that wiped out all of his 2017 season.

Luck bounced back with a fantastic 2018 campaign, throwing for 4,593 passing yards, tossing 39 touchdowns and leading Indy to the playoffs. If not for Patrick Mahomes' ridiculous season, Luck could have been a candidate to win the MVP last year.

Another offseason, however, was disrupted by injury. Luck began dealing with a calf injury back in April. The issue continued to nag the QB into training camp and was finally revealed to be an ankle injury.

All the injuries wore on Luck, and he decided to take his ball and go home.

The former No. 1 overall pick, entered the NFL as the epitome of a franchise quarterback owning the size, arm, intelligence, demeanor and grit. Luck immediately boosted the Colts from the cellar of the NFL to the playoffs. With a less-than-ideal offensive line in front of him, Luck helped drag Indy to the playoffs the first three seasons of his career.

After seven seasons, the Colts finally seemed poised to have the ideal team surrounding Luck to make a Super Bowl push. The injuries, however, wiped away those plans.

Luckily for Indy, Brissett is a starting-caliber quarterback and will take over full-time duties.

But there is no way to slice it, Luck leaving the NFL before turning 30 years old in less than a month is the most stunning retirement in history.
