winners & losers: preseason game 1

With no OL passblocking, it is impossible to rate our WRs, tho Chad Hall looked good and Lockette looked like a rocket, even to he got held twice. You want a starter, at WR? Collie hands down, but he has played with the best, peyton. We need to see any Qb and 1st team OL to rate our WRs. Without 1st string OL, anything you see out there is wiped out by a 2nd and 3rd string Ol that couldn't block an 86 yr old in a nursing home. So still too early to rate WRs.

The secondary all looked great.

Outside of Boldin, we have a serious issue at WR. Jenkins will not cut it this season. We need KW, MM or one of the other 12 WRs we have to step up. Its not a coinsincidence we have so many WRs in camp. There is no faith in Jenkins and its pretty clear now.

Collie may make it as a #2 till everybody else heals up.
i think cox was the best back up in there.
The interior offensive line was good, just those tackles, doe.

Collie looks solid. He could be a nice slot receiver .


They do need better depth on that d-line.

Yeah I know a lot of it was on the OL and the QB's but we had WR's dropping balls, fumbling and on numerous occasions guys running the wrong routes. Again only week 1 but like I mentioned earlier someone needs to make it impossible for them to be cut. Not going to be happy if it's 5-6 guys with 10-20 yards a game for the next 3 games. Someone needs to break out or stand out.

Side note: If you forced me to give you the order I would say Boldin, Manningham, Williams, Patton, Jenkins, then for the last spot I rank them as 1. Collie 2. Lockette 3. Hall 4. Moore

I have an issue with that to a certain degree. These guys have been practicing for a while now and they all are pro's after all. If your jobs is to catch a ball it shouldn't take weeks to get it together. Boldin doesn't have shaky hands, Crabs never had major issues, and Vernon seems ok......you either look like a starter or you dont.

I might be missing a couple so feel free to add.

I would add Dan Skuta to the Winners category. He played well at OLB. Dorsey and Ian Williams also did well at NT/DT.

DJ Harper also a bad night. Loser for sure.
Here it goes.....

I thought Glenn Dorsey was going to make an impact on defense for us this year. I was dead wrong! he looked fat, slow, out of shape, and like he had no drive to play hard. that said, I saw him push back a third string guard and almost make a tackle. If he wasn't held he might have made the tackle.

I saw forth and fifth string wideouts that looked three times better then Jenkins. Jenkins was in the wrong place on a scramble play one time. He got knocked on his ass coming in motion when it looked like he was supposed to go to the flats. Then, on the one play he made a good catch and turned it up field he coughed it up. It really looks like he might get cut.

Corey Lemonier blew my mind!! He was in the backfield every play. He overpowered pretty much everyone he was matched up against and looks like a started and a impact player, RIGHT NOW!!! Corey Lemonier is going to play a lot this season. The only thing is that Harrylson looks great too.

Reid did pretty good. He made some good hits, albeit they were after first downs had already been made, but good solid hits.

Well I wouldn't judge the rest of the season on the first pre season game but looked to me Dorsey has gained weight and not the good kind of weight. Seems like we want him to anchor and not penetrate. I think Williams has a big lead as our starting NT right now.
I didn't get to see but I read on nfl.com that eric read had some nice tackles can anyone give details on his play?
I like what I saw from Corey Lemonier and Ian Williams. There the biggest winners.

Saw most of the 2nd half and the starters were obviously out, but he looks just about right on schedule. He will need another year IMO to be reliable and "get it" but he doesn't look bad which is a good thing.

Gotta disagree about Dorsey, I thought he controlled his gap and got push on the pocket at times, I thought he was Ian Williams for sec..
I'll choose 5 in each case

Winners: Kilgore, Lemonier, Asomugha, Cox, I. Williams

Losers: McCoy, Tolzien, Jenkins, Harper, entire 2nd O-line
Winners: Reid, Lemonier, Ian Williams, Cox, McDonald

Losers: Jenkins, backup O Line sucks bad. McCoy

Even: Tolzien. Made some real good throws. Some bad ones too. Wasn't as accurate as usual. Still on balance not a bad overall game. In running for 2nd string for sure. Good understanding of the offense. Gets ball out quick. Usually accurate.

This was a reason I didn't list him as a loser. I agree.
