Preseason Week 2 Discussion Thread.
 
Might as well get this started. Today's matchups:

Cincinnati at Atlanta

Cleveland at Green Bay

Are you going to watch? I'm anxious to see Weeden again and that Atlanta offense.

Sunday's matchup between the Colts and Steelers should be interesting.

Bulldogs 08-16-2012 12:58 PM

My team is playing, so yes I'm going to watch.

Scotty D 08-16-2012 02:07 PM

Well Weeden is suppose to play the whole first half so that will be interesting. I want to see more of Travis Benjamin, he was explosive in the first preseason game.

Halsey 08-16-2012 02:14 PM

Looking forward to watching the planet's three best WRs on the same field tonight. Also interested in how these 4 team's run games are looking.

The first WR we've had that's fast by NFL standards in a while.

Also, it really blows not seeing Richardson yet.

Ness 08-16-2012 05:04 PM

Is Gordon playing for the Browns?

RaiderNation 08-16-2012 05:07 PM

I'm hoping to see a lot more Palmer/McFadden action tomorrow against Arizona, DHB should get some looks as well going against PP most likely. The defense looked improved and the play calling was good to see, and going against a weak offensive team could be a good test to see how much more they can progress. The dline looked very strong despite not having Seymour and if they can control things up front with our improved LB corps we should be a much better team against the run.

Mike Goodson is getting his shot at the #2 RB spot with Taiwan Jones out, and I'm wanting to see if he doesn't show much that we might go after a RB in F/A (Ryan Grant please).

Yeah, he'll play. He played against Detroit.

Won't happen. He's out with an injury.

Hoping to see improvement from Weeden, Gordon and Schwartz.

I always knew you were Arthur Blank.

Ness 08-16-2012 05:59 PM

Hopefully Julio Jones puts on a show in limited action like last week. I really like watching him run routes. The guy is so smooth with his cuts. It's as if he glides through a defense at times.

You sure you're not talking about AJ? Green is the very definition of what you described. Julio is more about sinking the hips and explosiveness out of his cuts.

niel89 08-16-2012 06:04 PM

Yo Browns fans, how's Evan Moore doing?

also if you see him, tell him I hate him.

He's just returning from injury, but his roster spot could be on the line. He can catch, but he struggles as a blocker and can't stay healthy.

I like both guys. I've seen more of Jones though than Green so I can't say much about him.

BeerBaron 08-16-2012 07:01 PM

Yay, one of the games is actually on one of the channels I get. Bengals/Falcons...not the most intriguing preseason teams to watch but I'll take it.

I didn't know Calvin was playing tonight. But forreal Julio v A.J. will never get old.

Jvig43 08-16-2012 07:11 PM

Hardasty is so ******* terrible.

BeerBaron 08-16-2012 07:12 PM

Geno Atkins looks like a young Tommie Harris. He was quite the steal where they got him.

Caulibflower 08-16-2012 07:16 PM

Andy Dalton is so... pink.

Ness 08-16-2012 07:17 PM

Haden just got owned.

BeerBaron 08-16-2012 07:20 PM

At first I was like, "Holy ****, Leonard is going to break this."

And then I was like, "Aww...fumble."

Caulibflower 08-16-2012 07:21 PM

Wish I was getting Green Bay-Cleveland instead of Cincy-Atlanta.

Bengals78 08-16-2012 07:21 PM

Atlanta is clearly greasing the ball.
The Brian Leonard would never do that.

Giantsfan1080 08-16-2012 07:21 PM

Brian Leonard :(
