I don’t see him mentioned anywhere including what Shurmur said about players returning to practice. Ed says: Well, Big, you haven’t heard anything about...

PFF’s first preseason mock draft has Cincinnati taking a QB

Photo by Steve Dykes/ The restart button is about to be pressed. The Cincinnati Bengals have been led by Andy Dalton for almost a decade. Immediately starting all 16 games as a rookie in 2011, the veteran will need a solid season in 2019 to maintain that starting spot. If the Bengals have an underwhelming 2019, they’ll be primed to select one of the top quarterbacks of the 2020 NFL Draft. Unlike in 2019, the top few players in 2020 will be quarterbacks. In Pro Football Focus’ first preseason mock draft, the Bengals select Oregon QB Justin Herbert. Standing 6-foot-6, Herbert was...

Flacco and Broncos offense rebound after rough practice

Photo by Helen H. Richardson/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via To see the offense respond like it did on Saturday is a positive sign for the regular season. Good morning, Broncos Country! The confidence from Joe Flacco and the Denver Broncos offense has been evident for over a week. The first drive of the preseason for (most of) the No. 1 offense against the Seattle Seahawks served as the foundation. Over the last week, Flacco and the offense have become more comfortable and confident. Then in the first day of the combined practices with the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, the...

Steelers defeat the Chiefs in Week 2, only suffer minor injuries

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers were victorious vs. the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2, and remain a relatively healthy team heading into Week 3. It is often said how Week 3 of the NFL Preseason is considered the final dress rehearsal for the regular season. If this is indeed the case, the Pittsburgh Steelers will go into their Week 3 game vs. the Tennessee Titans with the vast majority of their starters rested and ready to go. In Week 2, the Steelers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 17-7 at Heinz Field, but it wasn’t without some bumps and bruises along the way....
