Just a quick serious question for those of you who saw the scrimmage. Do the good plays you all talk about make you feel better for the guy who made them or do you think the guy defending him just sucked. Obviously if a RB breaks two tackles and has a good run that looks good but then again two guys missed tackles right. Everybody talks about the good night Lacy had but others are quick to point out that it was against the Packers run defense so what do you take away from it all? The good run performance or the poor defensive performance.

I think most people talking trash are rival team fans.

It was a scrimmage so the defense was not playing full go. This was more still about evaluating decision making and executing the right plays. The real test will come during the pre-season games.

Hi sschind,

I recorded it and watched it twice to get a good read. I would say in every case, these guys were making some really special plays, rather than benefitting from miscues from the opposing player.

We've been around this long enough to know, and it is a great question, but, you'll see soon enough. Eddie Lacy, IMO, could well be the steal of the 2013 draft. Unbelievable.

Good points. If guys are dropping passes and completely missing assignments that is a bad thing for sure. I guess the actual results of the plays are not as important as if they were executed properly and guys were in the right position.

I guess that's what I really wanted to know, thanks.

I hope I can see the preseason game Friday night. I don't have a TV and I can't afford to go sit in a bar to watch a preseason game so if my sister and Brother in law (the Bears fans) don't invite me over I'll have to rely on you guys. Oh crap, I just remembered I'll be sitting around a campfire drinking beer and I don't even know if they will have TV reception so seeing the game may be out of the question.

I think it was starters v second teamers on both sides.
