. . . and the 2022 football season has begun! This is gonna be a crazy season what with a ton of player movement and lots of story lines. Von Miller is in Buffalo, DaVante Adams reunites with fellow Bulldog Derek Carr, Baker Mayfield to the Panthers, Mitchell Trubiscuit to the Steelers, Wetz to the Foreskins, AJ Brown (!!!) to the Eagles, Russell Wilson to the Broncos, on and on.
We of course have our new QB Trey Lance, and our guy who we can’t miss because he won’t go away, Jimmy Garoppolo.
On the line, Spencer Burford is playing very well, and hopefully 2nd year guy Aaron Banks will solidify the middle, along with whoever we put at center.
As far as this season goes, I can’t wait. I think this team right now is about as good as we have been in a long long time. I never felt that way with Jimmy G manning the QB spot. Will Lance soar over the game-management plodding passing game of Jimmy G? Well, the weapons we have seem to say yes. Deebo is back. Aiyuk is tearing up camp and kicking ass. We have speedster Danny Gray, Late-bloomer Jauan Jennings, and of course George Kittle. Elijah Mitchell, and rook Davis-Price should lead the way at RB.
The D looks even better than the last 5 years as we finally have a deep secondary. Charvarious Ward is a bona fide Press cover corner, Moseley is in top form, Jimmie Ward is still bringing it, and Hufanga’s play allowed the departure of Jaquiski (oooops) Tartt. If Verrett bnrings anything he’s found money. Ambry Thomas and Lenoir have some seasoning, and Thomas especially survived his trial by fire to come back strong.
Funny enough, I’m kinda jazzed to see what Derek Carr and Davante Adams do in Oakland. They put up Madden numbers in Fresno.
Another funny thing, Trubiscuit is sucking so hard in Pittsburgh, I wonder if they take a flier on Jimmy.
