    I was mad they didn't throw to givens more. They threw to him one time but it was way behind him to catch it.

    My thoughts on the WR core...catch the ball. Wade showed some good. Drew and Roydells drops did not encourage me, nor did Troupe's drop. Im sure the WR will get an ear full at practice

    He certainly looked good on returns.

    If Calico doesn't show something in the preseason, I'm going to be for Grant Mattos or O.J. Small taking his spot. There. I've said it. If Mattos is catching everything like they've said, I want to see him play more. Oh, and I know that not catching a ball last night wasn't his fault, but Givens had better show up.

    A bit early for that, I'd say.

    Someone questioned why I feel good about the WRs on this team.

    I am feeling good about them, because i have seen what many of them can do. I am not basing my overall opinion of each WR on the basis of one preseason game...other than what I have seen from Bobby Wade.

    What impressed me about Wade was his lateral quickness, something we have not seen in one of WRs since DMase exited.

    Our WRs corps looks to be in good shape.

    I think alot of the drops we saw by the WR are somewhat contributed to by the short timing routes many of them we running. Givens' pass was a bang/bang short pass, Troupe's was much the same. I think there may have been others. Those types of passes seem more difficult to execute.

    Roby had a screaming fast - long kickoff return.

    Looks like special teams are going to be the least of our problems.
