not a bad game, was good chance to see some of our future stars in action. Tomlin didnt really release the beasts which is good news - infact he didnt even take them. They probably come out the wood work after the next game no doubt...

Hard to judge really as we took our starters out early compared to Washington who left theirs in a bit longer.

Ike got injured,will miss the rest of pre-season should hopefully be back for week 1

Special teams looked awful, allowing a few big returns on a shortened field this year.

Dixon is still looking to run than pass - when he runs hes holding the ball out screaming for a fumble, when he passes the release doesn't look good. He's 4th and cut on my depth chart.

Lewis and Butler both look like draft misses, expect 1 of them to get cut as I don't see any of them challenging Gay at the moment for nickel back never mind B-Mac for a starting role.

On the positives, Redman looked impressive again. I doubt he will get many opportunities in the season though. Also a good downfield block by Brown on Redmans TD run. Brown was also impressive and by far the best looking receiver.

Heyward showed a few glimpses of his potential.

Also I don't think we were penalised until the 4th quarter which is always nice (although the evil dark sith overlord Deebo didnt play many snaps )

I hate to say it but Washington looked better prepared than us in the shortened training camp.
But its only pre-season and the teams that play the best football in August are rarely there in January. I'm sure Mike will Iron out the kinks over the next 3 games (especially on special teams coverage)
