    Apke has played 3 drives and hasn’t had a pass come his way, he’s playing good coverage. Assisted a tackle for loss in the backfield but a DL was offsides and negated it.

    he also has a good special teams tackle.

    The 2014 version of me wants to say the Pats will be a team that would sign Apke if he was cut by the Redskins.

    That’s it for Troy Apke today. His stock should’ve rose today. Played 3 strong drives with 0 targets, great coverage, special teams tackle. On that final long TD run let’s hope no goofy Twitter analysts attribute that to Apke cause they ran to his side.

    good day for Milne with a few catches and 2 first downs. 1 minute left let’s see if he gets another catch.

    WR Mason Kinsey playing well for the Titans - 4 rec 51 yds so far.

    No Chad Hansen for the Lions on the stat sheet. Tom Kennedy still on the Lions with a few catches - he's only 24...I thought he was around longer than that. It would be great if Campbell found roster spots for both Hansen and Kennedy.

    I caught a portion of this game and indeed the Cardinals were doing everything possible to give the manlet receiver Rondale Moore touches. And of course Arizona announcer Ron Wolfley was raving about him despite his pedestrian stats. Wolfley has a tough-guy, pro wrestler type of voice but is a buffoonish cuck.

    I can't recall a game, regular season or preseason, where Kucksbury game-planned to give Andy Isabella some touches like Moore received last night, but we already knew that. I predict the petite Moore will be a bust, but whether he is or not Isabella needs to be traded or released as he will never get a fair opportunity under the Kucksbury regime.

    Rondale Moore caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards and rushed two times for 16 yards in the Cardinals' preseason win over the Cowboys Friday night.

    DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green didn't play, and Kyler Murray wasn't under center. But Moore was the star of the show, with coach Kliff Kingsbury hitting him with a designed WR screen on the opening play. The Cardinals also got the ball in Moore's hands on a nifty reverse-type play. The second-round rookie was a steal at No. 49 overall and only fell that far because of an injury history. He's a maven after the catch and with the ball in his hands, and Arizona has already stated it plans to manufacture touches for Moore. He's worth taking in the later rounds of fantasy drafts for his upside in this high-paced offense.

    Isabella was put on the covid 19 list for a second time this preseason. Seems bizarre. He does need to get out of Arizona ASAP.

    Ryan Nall 39 yard run!! Nearly at TD!

    Announcers like him! It is normal for him to bust long runs! "Remember he was a 2,200 yard rusher at Oregon State"

    For those hoping to see Jake Funk get some carries, the Rams-Chargers are on tonight at 10 pm Eastern on the NFL Network.

    Drew Lock coming out strong in the first preseason game - 5-7 151 yds 2 TDs. Hard to believe the Broncos view Bridgewater as potentially better than Drew Lock.

    Good game for Ryan Nall… can’t belive the hatred Twitter bears fans have for him. They’re mad he did good because they want him to suck so he gets cut. Unreal.

    Nall would be much better off to be cut. Yes he gets a salary but he could be a star. The Bears know that and will not allow him to. The same thing being done
    with Andy Isabella in Arizona. Both of these kids are so talented yet stuck on teams that hate them for being white. No other explanation. I wish both of them
    would get cut and move on to a team that would show them respect and actually play them.

    I agree WL. On twitter I had sent some direct messages, tweeted a couple of comments warning him that the Bears were the worst organization to resign with ...not that my opinion would matter of course. I'm can't believe that he wouldn't have other options. The Bears depth chart is/ was horrible at RB. He outperformed their draft picks both in his college production, #'s and preseason of course.

    It's good that you contacted Nall, and I'm sure you did it in a reasonable way.

    Too bad he didn't stay at Oregon State for his senior season, lose about 15 pounds and work very hard on increasing his speed, that way there would have been none of the "he's meant to be a fullback at the next level" nonsense. But these are young kids, and very very few are aware of the full extent of the Caste System, or even which college programs and NFL teams to try to sign with. Hindsight is always 20-20, it's the rare person who does most things right the first time around.

    Nall has always shown well in the preseason. It's obvious why he is not getting the chance for more carries. Look no further than his own team - his college teammate Artravis Pierce holds more favor with Rodent Nagy than Nall does. DWFs prefer Pierce over Nall. Nall is a bigger, stronger, much more explosive player than Pierce but since he is not black he will be openly discriminated against and mocked by DWFs.

    Ryan Switzer with a TD catch near the end of the game. Mayfield didn't play at all, Trevor Lawrence played the first quarter or so, looked decent but didn't get good protection. LeonardFan is right that Urban "Blight" Meyer appears to be purging the Jags of honkies. Wasn't it just a season or two ago that Jax had eight or nine White starters including four on defense? Not anymore, look like four or five max this year depending on who starts at TE.

    I loathe Urban Meyer more and more. He's awful.

    I do hope Switzer sticks with Cleveland, they don't have a true slot guy. I wonder how much Odell Beckham Jr. returning from injury will hamper the Browns offense as Mayfield will force the ball to him in order to appease him. I hope Mayfield as wised up to that, he seems to have turned a corner last year. Beckham is one of the most overrated players in the game right now.

    I don't think Mayfield feels any obligation to force-feed Beckham anymore after all the success he and the Browns had last year after Beckham was placed on IR. He's really starting to come into his own and he won't let Beckham drag him down anymore.

    I didn't see the game today. I just remember last year Pierce being in games moreso than Nall last year.

    Looking at the box score, Nall carried 3 times for 43 yards, Pierce 5 times for 50 yards.

    I hope you are correct. Down the stretch Mayfield really elevated his game and seems to have matured. The Browns looked much better with Beckham off the field.
