A reality check of a performance. The 1s actually played well, DJ Hayden aside. The less said about the rest the better, very sloppy. Trent Richardson is done. And neither of the backup QBs covered themselves in glory.

Got to agree, whilst the starters look ok the rest of the squad are not that good.

T-Rich is just a preseason body at this point. only reason to give him 5 carries against the Vikes surely was to spell Michael Dyer. no doubt Dyer is the only one with a chance of making the roster.

as for those 5 carries, 5 yards! even more turgid than his NFL career so far.

Dyer has a lot of talent. He broke Bo Jackson's freshman rushing record at Auburn, was All SEC as a sophomore and was the MVP in the 2011 National Championship Game. Unfortunately he was then kicked off the team and has had his share of legal problems while bouncing around a few colleges including Arkanas State and Louisville.

Johnathan Dowling waived, which might go some way to explaining the Mays pickup, even if he was a long shot to make the 53 anyway. Apparently it was due to 'maturity issues which had been building for some time'. I suppose they could have waited until the roster cutdowns, but if that's the reason it's probably best to get shut now, shows the coaching staff isn't messing around.
