The Week's Results
Gameball and goathorn totals are low, like they usually are in pre-season,
because not many fans are able to see the game live. In this week's edition,
Kelvin Garmon and Chad Beasley learn that, in Cleveland, fans are watching you
even if you play right offensive guard. Enoch DeMar gets props for solid run
blocking when he came into the game. Naturally, comeback kid Luke McCown nails
down the most gameballs along with dynamic duo Lee Suggs and William Green.
Some forget that Courtney Brown got more gameballs than anyone else on the
team last year, and it appears he's on his way back to a leadership role after
sitting out the tail end of last season due to injury. Goat totals are low this
week, but there remains a steady flow of thumbs-down votes for Robert Griffith's
work again this year.
|Luke McCown (12/QB)
|William Green (31/RB)
|Lee Suggs (44/RB)
|Richard Alston (15/WR)
|Courtney Brown (92/DE)
|Enoch DeMar (70/OT)
||Game ball goes to Coates for being all over the
field tonight on all areas of the game. Frost for kicking very soundly and
making us think, Gardocki who? And Luke McCown for his two very impressive
drives. Yeah, there were a few errant balls but for the most part the kid
hit a stride and looked very composed and impressive.
||Couldn't decide which running back to give a
gameball to so I decided to pick the whole unit. William green and Lee Suggs
both had impressive runs and Nick Maddox also looked good.
||Solid Game by all... Green is the man played
Great.. McCown really stepped up and Courtney was very active.. I feel this
was a good overall game other than the many many yellow flags thrown in our
||some tough decisions ahead... plus, we always pick
up someone's tough cuts this time of year. less lately since our depth has
improved. Butch might actually have to cut one of his own draft picks this
year. Butch has a plan, we are starting to see some results.
||I picked Suggs, but it should be listed as a
Suggs/Green combo to be accurate.
||Running game continues to impress.
||Nick Maddox is Jamel White but much cheaper!
Always has his feet moving and going forward. Green Just made the coaches
decision that much harder. Nice smarts by Luke.
||MCCOWN: Holy cow! What an amazing comeback by this
kid! DEE BROWN: Another amazing performance -- special teams, running back,
this guy is a definite keeper. FROST: Another great night of punting. Very
||Green and Suggs - They will both get 1000 yards
this year, a la Byner/Mack!! Luke McCown - The future? Bulk him up more,
doesn't look too bad!
||Jeff Faine is having a great preseason and he is
really busting his butt on the field. Plus, you got to love his tattoos!!!
||Luke McCown - yes, it was the 3's versus the 3's
at the end, but Luke showed great leadership, and nerves of steel to get 2
late TDs to snatch up the win. Daylon McCutcheon - Great play where he
almost made a diving one-handed int. Lee Suggs/William Green - Showed why
depth is so important in the NFL, and both played great...we have good
things to see from this duo this year!!!

||Lee for prez!!!
||Courtney seemed to be getting behind the line all
night. Green and Suggs deserve it for bringing life back into the running
||The backups are gettin it done
||Courtney played very well and was a presence the
Chiefs had to deal with in the 1st half. Luke's 1st of what hopefully will
be many, come from behind magical wins. Daylon had some big break-ups. He'll
need to keep it up, from what I've seen teams have tried to pick on him,
maybe because of his size.
||Lee Suggs: Doing the #44 proud!! Dennis Northcutt
- excellent overall game! Very good performance in punt returns. Keep up the
great work Dennis!!! Luke McCown - Watch out for this kid! Slow start in the
4th, but great leadership qualities in the end to bring home the victory.
Fans to Luke: "May the force be with you"
||Why did Butch take out Garcia before the end of
the first half when he badly needed the work to establish timing with the
||Chad Beasley gets really two goatballs. That one
drive turned into the "Beasley Foul Show". He was consistently getting
burned and showed he can not be trusted to hold down a spot. Let him sign
with the Giants already. Bentley missed a few tackles and did little to
impress me. Bodden got burned a few times, made some nice plays, but did
little to give him a starting spot.
||Someone taking off their helmet offsets three
personal fouls........I wish those officials would lay off that hippie
||Morgan had way to many yellow flags thrown at him,
and didn't do anything else but make our offense go backwards.. Holcomb did
absolutely nothing and I'm doubting his abilities to be our #2.... And that
damn cheap chief oline ass Casey Wiegman deserves a goat for that cheap
||Don't really want to single anyone out for
goathorns cause there is plenty to go around, however my goathorns go out to
all the penalties
||Garmon has been playing football far too long to
be so totally lacking in pass blocking that he has to cheat and draw all
||Too much poor tackling and mental errors.
||Garcia really needs to pick it up and NOW! He has
looked piss poor in 3 outings
||Arians gets a goathorn out of force of habit. I
still can't get out of my head the image of a two yard buttonhook on 3rd and
15. Bruce now sits on a fleecy throne, wearing his goatee, cloven hoofs, and
crown of goat horns, in the "what the hell kind of call was that" section of
the Pro Football Goat Hall of Fame. Baaaaaaaaaa!
||...(and only short horns)...for not leaving the
starting offense stay in long enough to get some consistency going.
||TUCKER: Every week with a penalty earns you a goat
horn. Stop it already. HENRY: Some nice plays, but you got juked out of your
shorts. You aren't a rookie anymore and should be able to handle an open
field tackle. DEF BACKS: You guys are really playing sorry football. We got
lucky with some poorly thrown balls and dropped passes. They are going to
make those catches in the regular season and you are going to be eating
dust. Tighten up!
||Butch Davis - Dude Garcia needs to be in there
longer! There is NO chemistry out there! Jeff Garcia and Terry Robiskie - I
thought that when Couch was gone, we'd no longer throw it 4 yards on 3rd and
8. I thought when Bruce Arians was gone, we'd no longer see the lame-ass
zero yard screen passes. I was wrong.
||BUTCH MUST GO!!! BUTCH MUST GO!!!
||Too many stupid penalties!!!
||Leave Garcia IN - that is what pre-season is for
||O-line - be it the 1st stringers or 3rd stringers,
what was with all the false start/illegal formations on these guys. I
counted at least 3 or 4 flags just for Scot Osborne...these problems must be
addressed. TV Announcers - yes I understand its preseason, but jeez, at
least get the players names right!! Those two were butchering names left and
right. Butch Davis - I really don't understand the point of not keeping the
1's in there for the entire 1st half. Yes, you don't want injuries, but at
the same time, these guys need to learn how to play together at game speed.
|section 527 dawg
||5 penalties for illegal formation?!?!?! You have
to be FREAKING kidding me!!! That iw ALL Tim Couch's Fault - Hey Garcia -
quit your whining about your lack of opps throwing the ball - our running
game is kicking a$$ right now - your whining BETTER be a smoke screen!! Some
||Garmon for two false starts, Andre Davis for no
catches....AGAIN...and Garcia for lack of production for all of preseason
||PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES,
PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES
!!! 33+ penalties in 3 games, wha.. wha.. WHAT!
||Too many penalties!
||Blocked kick, always missed tackles, and hurt in
QB school, come on preseason or not this is unacceptable
||Holcomb: STICK A FORK IN HIM, HE'S DONE!!! Bring
on Luke McCown for #2 (any articles on the battle for #2 QB would be
appreciated). Jeff Garcia: Need to get it together Jeff! I am rooting for
you, but you are not performing or (more importantly) establishing yourself
as this team's leader - need to step up to the plate and make it happen.
Absolutely have to be in control of time management - which you are not. 14
Penalties for 100 yards! Thank goodness it's still preseason. This will not
stand up to a W in the regular season - highly expecting this to end quickly
as we have had more than enough of this (mental penalties) since '99.
||Garcia for whining, Griffith for not wearing his
hat, and Zukauskas for not nailing down the job
