- You know, I just said nice things about the fans staying through the rain, and now they’ve started doing the Wave. Great.
- Two negative plays in a row for Devin Clark, the undrafted free agent rookie offensive lineman, including one that negated a nice 32 yard catch-and-run by Billy McMullen. Clark had some good showings earlier in the preseason, but that’s not going to help him out at all.
- Another attempted fourth down conversion by the Redskins, their second, negates the idea that they’re going out of their way to look at the punters. Which, since they’ve failed at both attempts, was pretty clearly the wrong decision.
- The Jaguars seem to think that they’ve spotted something, and are throwing straight at Matteral Richardson. Giving up a 51 yard touchdown pass is going to help Matteral’s case even less than his first-quarter penalty did when they’re making decisions on the final roster.
- A 26 yard punt for Derrick Frost isn’t going to help him on my scorecard one bit.
- Nice to see the defense hold the line there on both third-and-one and fourth-and-one. Still, though, this quarter feels like it’s been going on for decades and it’s only half over.
- And Durant Brooks pulls ahead on my scorecard, with another punt that was well-placed despite not being particularly long. Actually, that one looked like it could’ve rolled a few more yards before being touched down.
- Of the four things I was going to look at tonight, none of them have yielded any particularly great news. Starting offense momentum? None. Malcolm Kelly? Didn’t even see him. Young defensive backs and linebackers? Alfred Fincher has looked good. Justin Hamilton has looked pretty good. Matterral Richardson has not looked particularly good. Punting battle? As noted, I have Durant Brooks leading at this point, but it’s not like either one of them has really made a compelling argument. For a game that never seemed that promising to begin with, this still managed to be something of a letdown.
