Somewhere in the mix I thought these two got lost in the chatter. I know hill is reaching Seawright/ Mix status but difference is coaches are hyping him not just fans and he is running with 1's in practice. Looked great as an in the box safety. Nice tackle behind the line and 4 tackles in limited duty. Think he is a shoe in for Grants spot with J Will hurting and Sash out. Kid looks impressive.
Paysinger wasn't flashy but made all the plays he was supposed to. Standard tackles but again he made them.
Other quick thoughts from week 1 preseason.
Hard to ignore hendricks dominating 2's and 3's at tackle.
Marshall and Broha played well with 3's at end.
Tracy will replace tolly with ease and may even be better (trattou better get healthy quickly)
Herzlich has to be starting MLB - guy is flying.
Only a matter of time for bennett to take pascoe's job - great debut.
Hosley looked very good at cb - love it if he could be nickel and move rolle back to safety in those spots but its a tough position to learn and not sure he will get ther this year.
No one really took over for the third spot at wr - barden had a nice catch - jernigan has a TD if he doesnt get mugged (ugh replacement refs) and randle flashed nicely with 2's and 3's.
Punt returns - well hosley was first up and looked great even though it got called back - but JERNIGAN AND HOSLEY if you muff one more punt coughlin will go back to his old tricks and find a vet to just catch the damn thing (hence blackmon ross and mcquarters). I think Hosley will win in the end.
HELLO DAVID WILSON - sorry but its only a matter of time with this kid. I know its one preseason game but if you couldnt see the flash inside and out of tackles then your not seeing it right. I said the same thing of JPP early on - he is just faster and quicker then everyone out there - just needs to learn the playbook - it wont all be this year but soon. AND FINALLY we may have our return man.
I thought Austin looked rusty (to be expected) but not much push - Huge man though.
Robinson is also a big boy - not much from the project yet though.
Prince got caught peeking twice - and lined up inside when he should not have (nice to know the mistake was mental - can be corrected) but with webster on other side guys are gonna pick on him - has to be up to the challenge - hell that was gabbart and thomas not romo and dez or vick maclin.
