Great post Dad, worth more than the rep I gave you!  That took some time to do the research, with a little about each player.  I kept up with Mathieu's rehab a bit and posted some video from the Card's site.

Saw him Sunday in BR.  He definitely looks like he can still suit up.

 

Clark has some hard miles on him. I see him working at ESPN when he hangs it up.

Jarvis Landry excites the Dolphins early
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross shook the hand of one player coming off the field on Friday: Rookie Jarvis Landry.

Later, Ross mentioned Landry unsolicited, suggesting the owner is excited about Miami's second round pick before the kid catches even one pass in a game. Maybe he knows something.

"I think Jarvis Landry is somebody I think everybody is really excited about, speaking to the coaches. I think he’s really going to be somebody that’s going to surprise a lot of people and really bring some excitement to this team,†Ross said.

Well, if the coaches are telling him to keep an eye on Landry, maybe we should also.

What does Landry think of his first day of practice?

Also what Landry has been saying, most of what Cam runs at LSU, the Dolphins are doing much of the same. He has fit in well and looks to be ahead if the game there.

Panthers’ Trai Turner shines as offensive line displays progress

 
Posted: Friday, Jul. 25, 2014
More Information

Few came to see how the offensive line meshed, but Panthers coach Ron Rivera kept an eye on it.

Carolina’s offensive line rotated several players with the first and second teams, though the Panthers’ first-string line remains static.

From left to right, Byron Bell, Amini Silatolu, Ryan Kalil, Trai Turner and Nate Chandler got the majority of first-team reps together Friday night, just as they did during June’s three-day minicamp.

Rivera isn’t necessarily putting much stock into the line’s performance until they get into pads on Sunday.

“It was tough to tell, but listening to them communicate and talk is important,†Rivera said. “I thought Kalil did a nice job.â€

Kalil, one of the top centers in the league in his eighth year, is the most veteran player on the offensive line. While most eyes were on quarterback Cam Newton and his surgically repaired ankle, Kalil was focused on getting the calls with his younger linemen.

“I think in these practices you’re looking for ability to pick up the scheme,†Kalil said. “It’s a big playbook, a lot of information is being thrown around early on, so you’re looking at how guys are playing.

“You don’t really ABC it. We’re getting pretty down-the-line (defensive) looks right out of the gate, so it’s a good way to see how guys adapt and how they work things out on the fly in high-game speed.â€

Of the young guys around him, Kalil said Turner stood out the most. The Panthers drafted Turner out of Louisiana State in the third round of this year’s draft, and Turner turned 21 just last month.

He’s gotten the majority of reps at right guard since minicamp.

“He’s so young and he’s doing such a good job,†Kalil said.

A little Blue talk....
 
 
Keep an eye on rookie running back Alfred Blue. He has impressed so far. If he can handle the blitz pickups, Blue has a chance to take some carries from Arian Foster. He also has soft hands and does a nice job out of the backfield. He's a tall back at 6-2, and would be even taller but he's a bit bow-legged. I think he might beat out veteran Andre Brown for the backup job.
 
Alfred Blue did some nice things on Saturday. He made one catch, in particular, that was impressive. Bill O’Brien wants his running backs to be able to catch the football and Blue showed off his hands, at one point fully extending to grab an errant throw. The more impressive Blue looks, the less the Texans will need Andre Brown, the veteran of the backups. Where we’ll really want to see Blue is when the team puts on full pads and has some live sessions. If he can block, he might win that backup job away from Brown.
 
 
Got an invite to make a Texans practice later in the week.

Bumped into Eric Reid's cousin this morning.  Eric tied the knot a couple of weeks ago.

 

I wish him and his new wife all the best.

The Browns waived offensive tackle Chris Faulk on Monday, according to the NFL’s transactions.

The move leaves the Browns with 88 players, two short of the 90-player limit.

The 24-year-old Faulk spent the 2013 season on injured reserve with Cleveland after knee surgery. Faulk suffered a torn ACL and MCL at LSU in 2012

OBJ is out for the game. Kyle Williams stripped the ball from Eli, caused a fumble. He can play. Ron Brooks looked good, needs to pick up his speed on making plays.

Those knuckleheads credited thigpen in the stats, but it was definitely Jarvis.

 

The Fins know its Juice !

Here are some other thoughts on the Dolphins' first preseason game of the year:
  • Dolphins rookie receiver Jarvis Landry has been the talk of training camp. Landry also flashed in Friday's exhibition opener with a 48-yard punt return to set up a second-quarter field goal. Landry also had a 26-yard kickoff return. The rookie is competing with return specialist Marcus Thigpen for both spots on special teams as well as the slot receiver position.

And that it was against the Falcons makes it that much sweeter.

Craig Loston came down on kickoff coverage and only allowed be returner to the 15 yard line after taking it out of the end

zone. The was the ATL vs Jacksonville game.
