why the **** are we running the ball with 30 seconds left in the half in a preseason game. Let the kid throw christ

He's been solid. Making the right reads. Only incompletions were 2 drops, a deflected pass and a long pass that was overthrown to a WR that was blanketed. This is just about what you should have wanted/expected. They aren't going to air it out to make you happy and have a ball get picked to kill his confidence in an otherwise solid first half. 

If this was a real game, I'd be right with you.

Hack had a great first game.  Made the right reads ... just needs to be more than a manager.

I think you'll see it more when they open more of the playbook to him.  It looked to me like he was still working off a limited playbook but did well with what they called for him.  Excited to see the coming weeks honestly!  

Now lets see what Petty can do against a bunch of scrubs

here is another example - let's see a two minute offense; instead of this hand-off waiting for the half; this isn't a real game - let him through the ball deep or just take a knee; they missed on a perfect chance to practice a 2 minute drill in a meaningless game.

Yup, Todd Bowles is reaaaaaaallllly starting to piss me the f*ck off.

Nice looking first half.  

Hack and McCown looked good.  WRs about as good as can be expected.  ASJ sighting.  Oline looks solid.  And the defense looks on point.

Tells me Bowles has been doing some good work coaching this team up.  Yeah it's beyond early, but nice start.

Early thoughts:

- fans will ignore McCowns first 2 down, despite them being more typical for him

- fans will over-estimate the rest of what he did

- Jalin Marshall continues to move like Welker/Edelman but have the hands of Becht, he'd have been cut from the Pats by now, or scared into never dropping another pass ever

- they are really, really being delicate with Hack, maybe it'll work? I dunno. I cannot see his Petty is worse right now though

- defense looks like it can not be an embarrassment 

- going for 55 yard FG, lol Bowles still sucks

- flight crew has gotten hotter

- thank goodness for beer and fantasy football

When you are evaluating your kickers I can't think of a better thing to do than kick 55 yarders.

What do you expect?  They want him to have a good outing to build his confidence.

I wasn't criticizing. Just stating what is see, hoping it works. "Trial by fire" never has for us, so....

SUPER conservative outing from Hack. Probably by design. Wish they gave him more aggressive play calls, but he managed the game well enough, and looked the part.

Give him time.  If he's a good game manager this year and shows some potential to be more we have a winner. 

Exactly. There was no reason to run deep crossing patterns with backup Oline and young WRs. It's a recipe for a sack/fumble/INT. This is a glorified scrimmage.

They were disciplined and the starting d line is running voluntary wind sprints on the sideline.

Haters gonna hate but there are some good things happening.

And yet the approach with Hack is to build his confidence by only asking him to do was stuff. Seems like a double standard by the coaches.

I know it is only 1 half, but am I crazy or do I Sense a totally different attitude with this team - at least so far tonight? Watching the DL run laps during breaks says to me they trying to get into top shape to do everything they can to get better. Great sign. Never seen that before during a PS game.

This was a good start for Hack. He got a chance to build some confidence, get a feel for the speed of the game, etc. This was exactly what he needed... a positive step. No major f... ups and execute the game plan. We can expand and open the play book a little in upcoming outings. We are not going to expose too much in preseason anyway but except for the drops we don't look as pitiful as we are reported to be.

I'd prefer that he plays some of the third too.  He's looked solid.  

Most likely one series of the third.

Agree. Chandler might've made the choice for Bowles that much easier with that miss.  You aren't going to get chances to attempt those too often in pre-season.

We look faster, much faster.

I think they needed to get him to crawl before he can walk. Accuracy had been his knock.

Tonight he was very accurate and there were even try drops.

No interceptions is big then they take one training wheel of next week.

I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw, but it would be really nice to see him operate a grown-up offense at some point.

I wouldn't call them wind sprints exactly, but I like the energy and leadership; much different feel than last year.
