Andy Reid is Loving Football Again

Saturday: Earth City, Mo.
Rams
The Rams have some weapons, finally.

A year ago, the young Rams defense was winning most training camp practices. In routs, really. Quarterback Sam Bradford had one weapon he could rely on in the passing game—slot receiver Danny Amendola—but he was hurt a lot, and everyone else was a kid, still going to chemistry class with Bradford. The offense held a rising team back, averaging just 18.7 points a game in a pass-happy league.

As the sun beat down and the humidity lay on top of a late afternoon practice here, two men looked like they were about to change that. Three times in a five-play span in red-zone seven-on-seven drills, Bradford found Jared Cook, with a catch radius as wide as Jeremy Shockey’s used to be (and that’s a good thing), at the goal line; it’s like the defense knew what was coming and just couldn’t stop it. The Rams don’t know quite why Cook caught only 44 balls for Tennessee in his free-agency walk year, but they’re happy he was a free agent, and that he walked. What an afternoon he had in the St. Louis sauna, and how happy Bradford looked to have an offensive weapon in the middle of the field. I have not seen a better offensive weapon in all the practices I’ve seen on this training camp tour than I saw in the athletic and imposing Cook on this afternoon.

Then there’s the eighth pick in the April draft, slot receiver/kick returner/slot back Tavon Austin. (Want to see a few more slashes in his title? Just watch. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer might expand Austin’s job as the season goes on.) Come to practice now, and watch the eight-yard curl he ran on Cortland Finnegan.

Austin, a 5-8, 174-pound whippet, sprinted out hard, right at Finnegan. Austin stopped suddenly and turned to face Bradford. Finnegan—a $10 million a year corner, by the way—backpedaled two more steps after Austin turned, leaving him wide open for the easy completion from Bradford. Austin’s so quick it was almost unfair, and Finnegan explained why later.

“Pick your poison,” Finnegan said. “That’s what’s going to be so tough on corners covering Tavon. If I think he’s going to do that little eight-yard curl, and I play him tight, I might be able to stop it. But if he reads me, he can blow past me and then he’s off for a deep one, and there’s no way I can catch up after I’ve committed to the eight-yard route. He’s going to be a headache.”

“His cutting ability,” I said, “and the way he changes course so suddenly …”

“I know,” Finnegan said. “He stops on a dime, and he leaves change.”

I don’t know what that means, but it sounds good. I do know, though, what “stops on a dime” means, and you’ll see that a lot this year—particularly with half of Austin’s games on the fast track of the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. “That surface will make me feel like I’m back at West Virginia,” Austin said before practice.

He stops on a dime, and he leaves change. —Cortland Finnegan

When you watch Austin, the only thing you worry about is durability. But as he points out, he missed one practice or game in his four seasons at WVU. If he’s that durable—and it’d be stunning to see someone his size stay that healthy for a long time in the NFL—we’re going to have fun watching an explosive player in the Percy Harvin mold.

Deep dive into the Rams

Friday: Charlotte, N.C.
Bears vs. Panthers
Ten things I saw

1. Marc Trestman’s a communicator—much more than I thought. After the game, he spent 13 minutes walking through the locker room, shaking the hands of half the players in the room, stopping for 10- to 60-second conversations. “The book on Marc, the public persona Marc had, was wrong,” said GM Phil Emery. “He’s talking to everybody in the building, all the time.”

2. Kyle Long, the first-round guard from Oregon, and son of Howie, and brother of Chris, is not only a strong, solid player. (He was promoted to first-team guard in practice Sunday.) He carries himself like a fifth-year player. Smart, very media-savvy, and from the look of it on the two series I watched him on each snap, he plays quick for a 313-pound man.

3. Love that Long wears 75. Howie, a Raider, No. 75. Kyle, a Bear, No. 75. The family number, carried on in a second storied franchise. It just looks right.

4. Jay Cutler and the Bears, long-term? I like Emery waiting to see if they’ll sign him at the end of the year. I think they’ll decide to fork over the money for him, and right now I think that’s the logical thing to do. But he’s going to have to curb that devil-may-care side of him for Trestman to fall in love with him.

5. Early reports are Cutler and Martellus Bennett will be a great match. The QB likes Bennett’s athleticism and ability to get open in a crowded middle of the field.

Martellus Bennett’s 10 Things I Think I Think

Deep dive into the Bears

6. Dave Gettleman, the Panthers’ rookie GM from the Polian/Accorsi school, gets it. “We all gotta win,” he said before the game. “Cam Newton’s had the best first two seasons for a quarterback in NFL history. But the sin, obviously, is 13-19 [Carolina’s record in those two seasons]. And 2-12 in games decided by seven points or less.” Gettleman’s clear that he doesn’t put this all on Newton; it’s a team thing.

7. Gettleman said his job was to determine whether the Panthers’ 5-1 finish was real, or fool’s gold. He said it was legit. (I’ve never, though, heard a GM or coach said a winning streak was phony. Just doesn’t happen.) So he cleaned up the salary cap, got Jordan Gross to take a big pay cut, and figured he’d fix more things in the future when he had time, cap space and draft picks.

8. The Panthers offensive line could be an issue. A big one. Center Ryan Kalil’s back, and that’s big. But the right side of the line, former free agents Garry Williams and Byron Bell, could be a weak link, even after getting starting experience last year.

9. Armanti Edwards played 130 snaps last year. Not much for a guy the Panthers used a third-round pick on as a projection in 2010. But he’s rallied this summer, had a good camp, and could win the third receiver job. That’d be a good payoff for a guy best known for quarterbacking Appalachian State to a win over Michigan in the Big House.

10. Hard not to be impressed by Panthers cornerback Josh Norman’s two-interception night against the Bears. The fifth-round pick from Coastal Carolina last year is fighting to start. He showed excellent instincts in disrupting and jumping an Alshon Jeffery route on Chicago’s first pass of the night.

Thursday: Nashville, Tenn.
Titans vs. Redskins
Chance Warmack: The education of a rich rookie.

On the first play of Chance Warmack’s professional career (I am not crazy about calling preseason football “professional,” but the fact is men get paid to do it), Washington defensive end Jarvis Jenkins attacked Warmack under his shoulder pads, around breast level, and pushed the rookie back three stunned steps into the backfield. Third play: Worse. Much worse. Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, 63 pounds lighter, bull-rushed Warmack, tossed him aside, and sacked quarterback Jake Locker. Warmack trudged off the field, a bit shocked at what just happened.

“Embarrassing,” Warmack thought.

Warmack went to the bench with his four linemates, and line coach Bruce Matthews immediately showed him what he’d done wrong. Among other things, he committed the cardinal sin for offensive linemen—playing too high. Even lighter foes gain the upper hand when they can get leverage and momentum, and that’s what happened on both of the bad plays.

Something else shocked Warmack: the pictures.

“I didn’t know they took pictures of the plays,” Warmack said. “I never saw that before. I just came off the field, and they had the pictures of the plays I just was out there on. We never had that at Alabama. That … that was different.”

This is where Chance Warmack is coming from: We expect rookies to walk out of powerful programs like Alabama and move seamlessly to the next level. And he should have been better on this night than he was—he’d better be, long-term, or else heads will roll, courtesy of owner Bud Adams. But we shouldn’t say this night was a sign Warmack might be a bad pro. We should say he’s been in pads two days and for whatever reason wasn’t mentally prepared to face the kind of pressure he’s going to face weekly in the NFL. If you don’t even know they take pictures and print them out for you to examine after every series … well, you’ve got a ways to go to learn the ropes here.

“There is nothing that can prepare you for this level,” Warmack said afterward, a half-eaten hot dog in his hand on the stool in front of his locker at LP Field—in the rookie section of the locker room. “Nothing. You can play at Alabama, the highest level of college football, or you can play at a lower level. It doesn’t matter. You have to experience it for yourself.

“It’s like being in a fight and taking the first punch. You’re like, Oh. I never saw that before. I never experienced that before. Now I’ve taken that first punch. I’m just glad I’ve got three more chances before we play a regular-season game.”

One of the telling plays in a first half of them—the Titans are trying to catch Warmack up quickly after a short holdout, and thus played him for the entire first half—came when he had to block a linebacker, Perry Riley, on the second level, just past the line, on a running play. Warmack broke through and got to Riley, diving at him and knocking his legs out, making him sprawl to the ground. Mind you, this isn’t NaVorro Bowman or Derrick Johnson, some Pro Bowl player. This is Perry Riley, a marginal NFL linebacker. And Riley sprang up, pursued the ballcarrier, and made the tackle. Welcome to the NFL. It won’t be the first time Warmack thinks he’s gotten a player finished, only to see the player come back to make a play.

After I spoke with Warmack, I wandered back into the locker room. I’d never met the offensive coordinator, Dowell Loggains, and went up to introduce myself. I asked about Warmack. “The kid has been so honest,” Loggains said. “It’s refreshing. He came up to me after he got here and said, ‘Coach Loggains, I’m going to come to your office every week, and if I’m playing f—ed up, I want to know about it. I want you to be honest with me.’ “

That’s not going to get Ryan Kerrigan blocked, but it’s good to know the kid cares. Now, if he can just remember his fundamentals when the lights go on.

Are you kidding me Peter?  The Bills put up 44 with two rookie QBs (the first QB selected in the draft and a free agent rookie) who combine for 35-44 for 306, 3 TDs and no picks and you don't say a peep about either of them??

Any other year you would spend weeks blowing the first QB drafted and on the field, but thank god we got six pages of coverage about the rookie guards.  Awesome. 

The Bills are in the league, deal with it.

Not a fan of the new format or font. Too much flash and clutter going on. (I'm sure we are a minority though) Takes away from why we enjoyed the weekly MMQB -- feels like you bought into the corporate machine. Doesn't mesh with the personal stories and never would have expected it from you. Good Luck with it.

I don't think I've ever pulled for a player to make my team.  Naturally, I have my favorites on the roster but basically, I pull for whoever is out there for my squad and I trust the men who make those decisions.  That's changed this year with my Falcons signing Brian Banks.  Who among us can't appreciate his attitude?  He really is, from all of the accounts I can find, a tremendous young man and, i must admit, probably a better man than I.  I doubt I'd be able to move forward without any bitterness the way he has done.  C'mon, Dirty Birds, this man deserves at least a practice squad spot!:)

Peter must have forgotten the league has 32 teams.  He seemed to focus on the Lions, Jets, Ravens, KC and a couple of others, ad nauseum.  Hopefully next week he will remember some of the other teams and have some information in there about them.

Can you imagine how good Cabrera's lifetime #'s would be and how full his trophy case would be if he was remotely sober before 2 years ago?

Let me get this straight:

1.) Kosar says the Rams receivers stink, the receivers coach stinks, and Clemens stinks... True statements but so hurtful that he must apologize.  

2.) Peter King says Bernie was drunk... false statements and hurtful (considering his slurred speech is a disability caused by 10 or more concussions he received from, you know, playing the game) and no apology is warranted.

Why should Bernie apologize for being a truthful jerk yet King doesn't need to apologize for being a misleading jerk?  

For the record, Clemens was 6/13 (thats a whopping 46.2% completion percentage), for 116 yards, with 1 td and 2 picks.  Kosar says that stinks and Fisher says he played well... hmmm.

Peter, maybe you should have tried watching the actual Browns/Rams broadcast instead of just basing your response off of Jeff Fisher's rant.  You would have found that Bernie Kosar was at least as critical of Browns players as he was of those on the Rams.  He also praised Clemens, citing his great arm strength and ability to pick up and evade the blitz, right after he criticised him.

PK - three things I think.  

One, like the expanded format a LOT.  Content all seems worthwhile, no filler.  Be interesting to see if your team can keep it up.  

Two, spent a year in Chattanooga for school.  The Lookouts' games were always a highlight.  If I recall correctly, student nights (way back in the 80s), we $1 admission, and 25-cent hot dogs.  Tough to beat that.  

Three, Cabrera is a monster.  Had the good fortune to be on the field for BP in Cleveland last week, and Cabrera was pretty much hitting them out by section:  left, left-center, deep center, right field.  With power.  Although V-Mart hit the longest one, Miggy was by far the most consistent stroke.

PK, the new format threw me off. But really really happy to see you preserve the regular Monday column with all of its traditions intact, even if the fonts are different. Do I dare invoke Bernie Kosar, and suggest that the parts of your column are are as Holy as parts of the Mass? All kidding aside, thanks for continuing to humanize the NFL.

What's up with all the holier-than-thou consternation regarding King's "questioning" whether Kosar had been drinking. I think it was pretty funny, myself.

How many times, literally or figuratively, have we said in reference to something a little crazy..."What the eff, bro...are you drunk?"

So many touchy d-bags who are looking for ANY reason to get their little panties in a wad. Get over it fellas...this is professional football...it's OK to be masculine.

Oh by the way, Jeff Fisher once gave Chris Mortensen's son, a guy who wasn't even good enough to start at Samford a tryout with the Titans (he appeared in a preseason game).  Hmmmmm....and now Peter King is defending Fisher whom he also shares the same agent.  I gotta hand it to Fisher, he knows how to use his media puppets.

Peter, I appreciate the work that you have done over the years.  Your columns have been entertaining and informative.

However, your comments about Kosar and drinking were very unprofessional, and you're better than that.  If you sat down and watched the entire broadcast of that game, I think your opinion regarding Bernie's commentary would be entirely different.  Bernie's not a saint, by any means.  However, if you want a breakdown of the X's and O's of offense, you can't get a color commentator any better than Bernie.  His commentary Thursday night was detailed, coherent, entertaining and spot-on.  If a color commentator can't criticize a receiving corps for dropping 6 passes in one game, that's a sad statement for our society in general and a sign of political correctness gone awry.  

I'm glad to see your apology this evening on Twitter, and look forward to reading your column tomorrow morning that further expounds your apology.  I don't know if Kosar is an alcoholic or not, and I am in no place to judge him one way or another.  However, I do know that, worse case scenario, if Bernie is alcoholic, I have seen many individuals fight that fight, turn their lives around, become sober, and do great things with their lives.  Let's not disparage individuals who fight the difficult fight of sobriety.

Hey Peter - 

1.  When will you rename your '10 Things I Think I Think' to (as in this week's column) '32 Things I Think'?  Less is more.  Think harder.

2.  You did not take my advice yet to change your column pic to a less simian version of your visage.  Pin your ears back, smile and stop hunching your shoulders.....sit up straight and be proud of your ugliness.  

3.  I was on the fence on the Kosar thing - I saw a little of the broadcast and thought Bernie was acting the homer a bit.  I then read that you and Jeff Fisher share the same agent (True?) and consider him a friend.  So, Peter, it may be a bit of homerism on your part too, eh?  So I have to ask, rhetorically, were you drinking while writing this column?

4.  Took a side trip to read '10 Things I Think I Think' by the Bears' TE Martellus Bennett.  What a load of immature, narcissistic drivel.  The guy is 26 going on 14.  Pay your editors a little more please.

So the man who has had an alcohol related comment in pretty much every one of his MMQB columns for YEARS now has the audacity to ask if some teams local color-commentator was drunk when he said/did nothing wrong and/or out of line?  You admit that you had the owner of a brewery have a half-gallon of alcohol ready for you when you arrived.  Seriously?  

I suppose that makes you an expect on drinking/drunk.  Get to an AA meeting to discuss your Alcoholism issue.  You need some serious help Peter.

I've read MMQB for the last time...your comments and tweets regarding Kosar are outrageous. You, sir, are the one that needs to apologize. Bernie Kosar has forgotten more than you'll ever know about football ( and please spare me the concussion / alcoholic remarks about memory ) this guy is working hard to turn his life around, and I for one really enjoy his color commentary, he's not the usual, dull PC talking head... and just happens to have a pretty good sense of humor. As for Jeff Fischer , sorry you had your feelings hurt bro...but your receivers actually DO suck ( being a Browns fan for nearly fifty years, I know a thing or two about that ), and your " well documented issues " remark was a cheap shot too, far more out of line than anything Bernie said about the Rams. I happen to live near San Francisco, and even though I've never been a 49ers fan I'm gonna make it a point now to root for them to crush the Rams twice a year until you're done in STL. And btw Peter, when you visit Cleveland from now on, you might want to make sure there's not a little something extra floating in latte or Great Lakes draft, if you know what I mean.

KC fans will soon find out that Andy Reid is just a glorified assistant coach, just as Ray Rhoads was before him. Reid says that he's glad to be back just coaching the team, which is odd, since Reid gets out-coached just about every week by the oppositions head coach. The scary thing for Eagles fans is that it took 14 years for their owner and lame front office to realize it. Reid will be out at KC before Chip Kelly is in Philly but it could be close.

@MrSerious Good points.  I will say that I watched that game and found Kosar to be a terrible color man (which has nothing to do with him calling out Clemens and the receivers).  He seemed very arrogant, not so much personally but from a Browns point of view, as if the Browns are some dynasty franchise.  He must not recall the Browns have never been to a Super Bowl, much less won one. 

MrSerious

@couch68 Fisher is the one being a cry baby.  The receivers did stink, clemens played lousy (although apparently fisher things a 46% completion rate and 2 to 1 interception to td ratio is a good performance) and Kosar called it like it was.  I also dont recall Kosar talking about Fisher's adultery or the fact he has had a record above .500 7 times in the last 18 years.  Fisher is the one who made it personal.

@Richard Long @MrSerious Kosar is arrogant.  He has always been that way.  He says what he thinks, to coaches, fans, etc.  He always has.  Believe me if you have watched Kosar call preseason Browns games in the past, you would know its not coming from a Browns point of view.  He has been more critical of Browns players and coaches then he was of the Rams.  Kosar calls it as he sees it.  Let me ask you, what did you think of his analysis? IMO, he was spot on.  Its hard to blame someone for being right.  Could he have said it in a more PC way, sure, but that wouldnt be as funny or entertaining.

@mystafugee @couch68 Exactly, Kosar's comments were accurate for the game. They were just twisted by Peter King, who then whined about someone not saying good things about his 'pet team'. Seriously Peter, you respond to a commentators comments about their play during a game by going to a practice and saying they look good? How many balls does a receiving corp have to drop badly in a game before the opposing team commentator can call them 'horrible'? Apparently many more than a half dozen.

Kosar's commentary was accurate. Jeff Fisher not only threw Kosar under the bus trying to protect his players, but needlessly attacked Kosar's character. You are supposed to be a professional football coach Fisher, how many drops do you think Rams fans are going to say is acceptable each game. Heck, Fisher should be thanking Kosar because he was saved the ire of Rams fans this week as they nerd rage on Kosar's comments instead. Or delude themselves by thinking they can explain away badly dropped passes by saying it's just a 'vanilla offense' for the 1st preseason game.

@MrSerious @Richard Long  I've watched a lot of pre-season games and never have I heard anyone be so critical in them, that's what shocked me.  I've lived in Dallas, Baltimore, Denver, Seattle, Chicago and watched dozens of their pre-season games and their color men were always gracious for both teams.  I would hate to listen to him for four games every season, so glad I don't root for Cleveland (that and the fact that they've never been to a SB ).  And as far as Kosar goes, three shots and he went 0-3 in the biggest games of his life.  Sorry, that doesn't cut it.  I would think he would have more humility given that he was a good, but not great QB.  And the fact that his daughter has done porn only adds to the fact that I would think he would have more humility.

@Richard Long @MrSerious You saw the first half.  The Rams played horribly, and Cleveland didn't.  Who should he have criticized?  No doubt he is arrogant and a bit defiant (his ousting from the browns had much do with with changing a play bill belichick called, scoring a TD on that play, and telling the media he drew the play up in the dirt) but he understands QB and Receiver play like no one I have heard call a game.

I must say, you are wrong about Kosar in big games.  Sure the browns lost in the most heart wrenching fashion imaginable under Kosar.  That said, in 85, he threw for a NFL playoff record 489 yards in a come from behind OT win over the Jets.  In 87, he threw for 356 yards and 3 tds in the loss to Elway in the AFC championship.  If Byner didnt fumble on the 2 yard line, Kosar would have avenged Elways Drive the year before with one of his own.  in 88 he set an NFL record for the most consecutive playoff games with 3 or more TDs.  

What does his daughter being a porn star have to do with him?

@MrSerious @Richard Long I only watched the first half and he was not very critical of the Browns then.  He was highly critical of the Rams, their play calling, their alignments, ....I'm not a Rams fan so it really doesn't bother me.  I just found him to be so arrogant.  Especially for a guy who couldn't get it done in the big games.  And you have to think he would be a bit more humble considering his daughter has done porn.

@Mot Cevaro @Chastaen @mystafugee @couch68 Fisher has ALWAYS looked out for Fisher and Fisher alone; how else could a mediocre to average coach (.500 coach in 17 years) last so long without very little accomplishment?

Mot Cevaro

@Chastaen @mystafugee @couch68 It was the premeditated decision by King and Fisher attack Bernie's personal character over critical comments he made about a football game.  What's makes it worse, is that Fisher asked reporters to ask the question so he could go on public record and personally blast Kosar.  As if FIsher has any room to talk regarding someones's personal life considering his "well documented" adultery.  King made it worse by adding his premeditated personal attack on Kosar to get some brownie points with his agent's son (Rams VP of football operations, Kevin Demoff) so he will continue to get his exclusive access with the Rams (like being allowed in the draft day war room).
