PreSeason Week 2 TakeAways!🔥
* Cam looked pretty good, throwing 9/12 with 89 yards. He had a passing TD to rookie TE Antonio Ga-I mean Ian Thomas but also had an INT to Dolphin’s star corner Xavien Howard because he didn’t see him.
* Christian McCaffrey had an outstanding game with 92 yards on 5 carries, with a 71 yard TD run on the 2nd play of the game. Also had 4 receptions for 28 yards.
* Blocking was complete garbage, especially on the left side with Matt Kalil. Alex Armah is such a great blocker though and played a great fullback.
* Rookie DJ Moore had 0 catches today on 2 targets. One was an underthrown yet catchable pass from Taylor H that could’ve been a 35+ yard gain.
* The only WR that really stuck out today was Curtis Samuel who had 2 catches for 65 yards, one catch being a 39 yard moss over the defender. He showed his wheels today and showed to be a really dominant slot.
* Damiere Byrd had a solid game with 2 catches for 27 yards, Devin Funchess had 1 for 13 and Torrey had 1 for 12. Funch and Torrey didn’t get much playtime or targets. * The defense was really good at stopping third down conversions in this game which was a plus. Front 7 was dominant like always and Shaq Thompson had another great game.
* DaNorris Searcy injured himself early in the game, hitting a receiver very hard helmet to helmet. Receiver was ok but Searcy was not, bringing in rookie safety Rashaan Gaulden out of Tennessee. He had 2 tackles.
* Donte didn’t have the best game today, but it wasn’t really all his fault. Donte let up a lot of catches but mostly do to us not pressing up on the receivers. They had the corners over 10 yards away from the LoS which was a bad idea considering Miami’s offense likes to throw a lot of checkdowns. Donte allowed a lot of yards on comeback routes. He totaled 3 tackles though.
* 2nd year nickel Corn Elder had a pretty good game today! He had 4 tackles and even had a great pick. Glad to see him doing good, hopefully he can take over Cap’s spot midway though the season. -
