The Jets / Colts game is just kicking of and there are several other games on tonight (including Pats / Skins at 7:30).

Just thought we might need a thread to talk about how everyone else looks...

Delano Howell is starting at safety for the Colts, he was with us in 2012. No Sheppard on Colts 1st D unit.

Stevie makes his debut with the 49'ers tonight as they take on the Ravens.

Geno a bit shaky on opening two drives.  Jets D doesn't seem to have too many holes in front seven, but secondary is weaker.  If our OL can hold off the press, we should do ok.

Bills fans would have liked Geno's check down on 3 and about 15 and him throwing to a receivers feet on a blitz.   He had a couple nice throws, but inconsistent thus far...

Mallet just threw one low, then was sacked.  Pats ran on 3rd and long.  Meh.  Preseason Live is down, so I can't watch the Jets at the moment...

I have seen various comments and threads about Mallet.  PLEASE NO.

I am watching him right now against the Redskins - he looks pathetic!

Let's see how Cousins looks...

Ugh, this game needs more penalties.

Tom Brady sits to open the game.  Patriots run D getting gouged.

Mallett looks pretty solid.   Seems to be completing mid range tosses with ease.

How about Kirk cousins?  That's a guy you might be able to get next year even without a first rounder

Cousins looks way better than Mallet, IMO.  The announcers on the Pats broadcast even called Mallet inconsistent...

Also, how did we only have two penalties in the HOF game?  I feel like there have been tons in this game!  The Jets had 5 in the first half,

Also watching that game. Cousins looks solid. Great touch on passes. Total opposite of Mallett. He's terrible.

Oops, spoke too soon. Two incompletions by Cousins in the red zone. He sucks.

Wow - who was Mallet even throwing to with that first pass?  Then the jump pass? Of course, a nice toss on third down.

It's almost like QBs with little experience sometimes struggle.  Or something.

Then right back with an ugly deep ball...

Anyone who posted the Bills should trade for Mallett should be forced to watch this game Clockwork Orange style.

Touchdown Skins!  TRADE FOR COLT MCCOY!

Really though, I am enjoying Washington's backups whipping the Pats backups.  One thing I walked away thinking from the HOF game was that our backups played tough...
