    Did he ref the second half?

      Hell if I know. I barely watch Lions preseason games, I don't watch regular preseason games. Did Murray play in the 2nd half?
      The Detroit Lions... where eleven men on the field is merely a suggestion.

        Who is Murray? Kyler Murray?

        • I need to get checked for ear bleed.

          If not this time, then the next time I ever hear an announcer proclaim, "Eric Ebron, what a great reclamation project for these Indianapolis Colts."



          Heard that moments ago while watching 1 of 7 DVR'd pre-c games I'll partially watch, if at all.

          • Oh, he's such a specimen...LOFL

            DK METCALF, WR, SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
            DK Metcalf (knee) will have surgery this week but isn't expected to be sidelined too long.

            This could be a knee scope, but we're awaiting official word from the team. If that's the case, Metcalf could be looking on the wrong side of questionable for Week 1, but the Seahawks are optimistic that's not the case. Metcalf's injury history is one of the reasons why he "fell" in the 2019 NFL Draft, so they'd be smart to not rush him back. When he returns, Metcalf is expected to start in two-receiver sets with Tyler Lockett.

                Trickalicious - I don't think it is fair that the division rivals get to play the Lions twice. The Lions NEVER get to play the Lions, let alone twice.

                  He would have traded all our picks to move to pick him #1 in the draft

                  • Kliff Kingsbury: Cardinals aren’t showing actual offense in preseason

                    Posted by Darin Gantt on August 19, 2019, 5:45 AM EDT

                    The Cardinals have a rookie head coach and a rookie quarterback, bringing new offensive principles to the NFL.

                    And if you watch them in the preseason, you’ll see almost none of that offense.

                    Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury admitted to Peter King of NBC’sFootball Morning in America that they are very deliberately not showing the bulk of the offensive scheme Kyler Murray will be in charge of in exhibition games — making them a bigger waster of time and money for fans than they already were.

                    “The games, we’re trying to keep it close to the vest, obviously,” Kingsbury said. “We’re trying to get our players used to playing with each other. But . . . it’s interesting for me, because this is the NFL, and I’ve never called a game in my life where I wasn’t in straight attack mode. Kyler and I are adjusting to that.”

                    Asked what they were actually preparing for, and Kingsbury had a list of non-football play items.

                    “That’s a great question,” he said. “For us, it’s operations. Getting guys lined up. Proper footwork. Things like that. It’s a challenge for Kyler. He wants to play. He wants to have success right away. He wants to light up every field he gets on. He’s been trying to get more put in to these game plans. ‘Are we game-planning this week? Are we game-planning? Can we do what we do?’ That’s been fun to see. He wants to go out and shine. He always has been the best, wherever he’s played. He expects to be the best. That’s what drives him.”

                    Of course, the Cardinals are installing the fun stuff in practice, in front of far fewer eyes (and paying customers), giving them some degree of element of surprise early in the regular season. Which they may well need, since their roster may not be very good.

                    • Bengals remember Cedric Benson

                      Even though he was the fourth overall draft pick of the Bears, the late Cedric Benson had his best NFL seasons with the Bengals. The team has issued a pair of statements in the wake of his passing.

                      “Cedric was a fine football player for us,” Bengals president Mike Brown said. “He played a principal role for several years here, including a couple of playoff runs. He was from Texas, and he showed his Texas toughness in leading us to a division championship in just his second season with us. His three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons displayed the talent he possessed. Our organization is deeply saddened by his sudden and tragic passing. The Bengals extend our deepest condolences to Cedric’s family.”

                      Former Bengals running backs coach Jim Anderson praised the player who reached his NFL potential in Cincinnati.

                      “Once he bought into our system, he was like a flower,” Anderson said. “He just blossomed. He gave us an element we didn’t have. We had complementary guys, but Cedric gave us a missing element. He was a good man. He was one of my guys and it hurts. Life is too short.”

                      Benson’s tenure in Cincinnati ended after Benson balked at a plan to share touches with Bernard Scott.

                        Yeah I watched and was seeing the real refs in there. Maybe it's the 2nd half that the backups do. The original point was that the real refs flagged Murray for a false start and I see that now. Bad call. Well... it's preC for everybody I guess.

                        Edit - I don't watch the 2nd half of preC, but maybe I should just to see the refs.

                                Ezekiel Elliott found “Zeke who?” quip disrespectful

                                Posted by Josh Alper on August 19, 2019, 2:06 PM EDT

                                Cowboys owner Jerry Jones went for a laugh after Saturday night’s game against the Rams when he was asked about running back Ezekiel Elliott‘s ongoing holdout.

                                Jones quipped “Zeke who?” in response to the question and then went on to say that “we’re having some fun, not at your expense” in reference to Elliott. Elliott didn’t find it as amusing as Jones.

                                Elliott’s agent Rocky Arceneaux told Chris Mortensen of ESPN what he and his client thought of Jones’s remark.

                                “I didn’t think it was funny and neither did Zeke — we actually thought it was disrespectful,” Arceneaux said.

                                The quickest way to putting a smile back on Elliott’s face would likely be to give him what he’s looking for on the contract front. Mortensen adds that there’s been “no real activity yet on negotiations,” however, and that suggests it may be a while before anything happens in that area.
