Never forget that NFL coaches look at preseason games differently than we do

It’s fun to have opinions about what happens in preseason, but we just don’t see it the same way coaches do Please... take a breath. It’s all going to be OK. It happens every preseason, but it’s still always amazing to watch NFL fans — specifically Kansas City Chiefs fans — lose their minds after the first preseason game. It doesn’t matter if the Chiefs win or lose the game. There’s always something that gets people riled up, and ready to write off the whole season — before a single down has been played. Take a chill pill, my friends. It’s just like what they say in...

Film Room: Ola Adeniyi leaves question marks heading into Week 2 vs. the Packers

Pittsburgh Steelers fans were treated to a familiar site during the first preseason game — No. 92 roaring off the edge and disrupting another NFL team’s offense. This was not James Harrison playing in the second half but instead, it was Olasunkanmi Adeniyi (Pronounced “OH-la-suhn-KAHN-mee | ah-DAY-nee”). Adeniyi declared early for the NFL draft in 2018.

Will the NFL’s new rules save the kickoff from extinction? The league sure hopes so.

To most of the football-watching public, not much is different about kickoffs during this NFL preseason. The play still looks fundamentally the same, as kickers launch footballs toward distant goal lines, and would-be tacklers race down the field with varying degrees of abandon in search of speedy returners.

Rams-Raiders: The Professor’s Preview

Looking for better results, the Professor dives into the Rams’ backups and what to look for on Saturday. The debacle in Baltimore Last week’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and Baltimore Ravens can be compared to waiting six months to get a reservation at a gourmet restaurant. Everyone tells you that they have the best food. The best menu. You order something that your really not sure about, but you trust the reviews and your friends. Then the waiter serves you SPAM on a cracker. Diehards can fall back on the fact that NOTHING in preseason means a thing. When you sit 20 of your...

Eagles-Patriots Preseason Game Predictions

The “rematch” is nigh. Dear Doug Pederson, Please run the Philly Special tonight. That’s all that matters for tonight’s game. (Well, that and everyone staying healthy. Run the Philly Special and get out of Boston Foxborough unscathed.) Unfortunately, I’m not counting on Doug to do it since he that he said that play is “retired” now. But c’mon, Eagles. You gotta give us something tonight. I know you’re probably going to take the high road because the focus is now about 2018. But at least give the fans some kind of moment where you remind everyone who won the Super Bowl...

Options for a new QB2

Surely there are better options to back up LA Rams’ QB Jared Goff. But will the Rams pursue them? As it stands, Sean Mannion is set to enter his fourth NFL season with the Los Angeles Rams. And with 2018 being the final year of his rookie deal, it could be his last season in LA. The fact that it’s late August and Mannion is still penciled in at QB2 probably bodes well for his chances of making the final roster. But Mannion - who didn’t impress in last week’s preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens - still needs to earn the spot. The current crop Mannion’s primary...

Jets vs Redskins: Five Bold Predictions

Week 2 of scintillating preseason football and it’s time for some more Bold Predictions. Disclaimer: A Bold Prediction is not something that is likely or probable to happen. Bold Predictions are blind guesses that are laughably optimistic beyond what anyone can reasonably expect to happen, but not so far as to be virtually impossible. Saying that Leonard Williams will get a sack is not a Bold Prediction, nor is saying that Bilal Powell will run for 650 yards. By definition, Bold Predictions are unlikely, but not impossible, to occur. Since this is a Jets site, they are also pro-Jets...

The Chiefs will see Parker, now a member of the Atlanta Falcons, on Friday night The Kansas City Chiefs take on the Atlanta Falcons in their second preseason game of the season on Friday night at 6 p.m. Arrowhead Time, meaning we’ll have an opportunity to check in on an old friend—safety Ron Parker. The Chiefs cut Parker this offseason after five seasons with the club, a move that saved the team nearly $5 million in cap (but one it may be second-guessing now). Parker caught on with the Falcons in June and he now wears No. 48. Let’s welcome in The Falcoholic’s editor in chief, Dave...

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny to have hand surgery, status in doubt for Cowboys Week 3 game

Could the Seahawks be down a player when Dallas visits? We’re still only in the second week of the preseason, but football that counts will be here before we know it. The Cowboys visit the Carolina Panthers to begin the season, and Dallas is on the positive side of the injury spectrum so far (crosses fingers). Dallas will host the New York Giants the week after on Sunday Night Football (of course) for their home opener, but the week after they’ll be back on the road facing the Seattle Seahawks. It’s been a while since Dallas visited Seattle early in the season. That 2012 game (Russell...

Terrell Williams injures knee in practice, but walking after and says he’s fine

The rookie safety had a strong debut in the 49ers first preseason game. If he can avoid missed time, he could build on it this week. The San Francisco 49ers have hopefully avoided another modest bullet on Thursday. Safety Terrell Williams suffered a knee injury during Thursday’s joint practice session after going down on concrete outside the field following a one-on-one drill. Kyle Shanahan did not know the severity of the injury, but William was seen walking around and told Matt Maiocco he is fine. Williams has been further down the safety depth chart, but last week he might have earned...
