Default Shimmy is now ahead of Cardale

After this first preseason game, I think it's evident that:

1. Cardale is still way too inconsistent. He drills the rock into the ground. He sails the rock over receivers' heads. He's too indecisive. He's had a whole YEAR to practice with the team, plus last year's preseason, but I see absolutely no improvement.

2. Shimonek looked good in his limited play time. Nice quick release, decisive, moves well in the pocket.

3. Geno is our #2 QB for now. He did make some nice completions, but needs more pocket awareness to avoid picks, strips and fumbles.

The backup QB competition has been interesting so far.

I thought it was more depressing than anything.

Ugh on Sturgis ... back up punter stats sounded good ... didn't see the game ... anyone stand out other than Ekeler? Sounds like the TE's are horrible ... why isn't Gates signed yet? How about the undrafted free agents? DB's?

I agree it should be Geno then Nik ... almost time to cut Jones

Interesting isn't quite the word I would use to describe it.
Shimonek shows promise, though.

PRESEASON ??? We ain't doing no preseason and insane two a day practices.

That's just crazy talk right there. Pre- is for Pre-HOFers. Gates is watching tv with a beer and a pizza, laughing.

Its coming. Wait for it.

CJ is all on AL.

If he will be kept how can we trust coach?

The winning post of the entire thread.

Shimmy still sucks on clear ice.

Preseason Game #1.
Against the threes.
topcat has overhyped and tricked all of you into rummaging through the garbage can out by the curb for week old table scraps.
I laugh.

Starting offensive line stood out to me. They have Cardale some good protection but he isn't the sharpest fool in the shed. Rivers will likey
