Saints drop preseason opener in Cleveland

Garrett vowed to "send a message" in his first preseason game as a pro, and he did just that in limited time.

As for his other quarterbacks, "I wasn't expecting perfection tonight", Jackson said. We are competing against each other every day. Now, you could argue that it's meaningless since he was playing against the 3rd team defense, but remember, he was also throwing to reserve wide receivers who are unlikely to make the roster and getting protected by reserve linemen fighting for roster spots and spots on the practice squad. "That is what we have to do as a football staff".

DeShone Kizer threw a game-winning touchdown pass, and considering his standing as The Next Guy Who Might Be The Guy, that's reason to celebrate.

After having 11 and 11.5 sacks in each of his first two years at Texas A&M, Garrett registered 8.5 sacks during the 2016 season despite playing much of the year with a high ankle sprain. The turnover led to a Matthew Dayes 1-yard touchdown run.

Shambhala Festival Issues "Pre-Evacuation Alert" Due to BC Wildfires
Shambhala celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and is still scheduled to kick off Friday, August 11. It is now threatening some properties in the area of Shambhala, but not the festival itself.

On the third drive, a holding penalty on right tackle Shon Coleman backed up the Browns into a second-and-17 situation, and they gained only eight yards over the next two snaps before punting the ball away. "It's just more opportunities for me to make plays". Kizer could get more time against the Giants' starters, or he could move up to second team to see better quality defenders to help assess where he is. It goes both ways. I don't want to make it all about the receivers. "We all know he's talented, as I said before, but there are still some things he needs to do better". Osweiler completed six of 14 passes for a total of 42 yards and a 50.3 QBR. Though what we saw Thursday night wasn't surprising given that Osweiler had all of two practices with the first unit before the game and that Erving just isn't a left tackle, the Browns are still nowhere near game ready in terms of throwing and catching the ball, sustaining drives and making plays in those small windows.

The first-team offense accounted for 76 yards with Osweiler at the helm.

"I'm going to think through all these scenarios, I really am", Jackson said. "It's amusing because once you get that first carry you want more, so I just want more". Let's see it for what it was: the guy made some plays at the end to give us a chance to win, but there's still things he needs to do better.

The New Orleans Saints were definitely looking forward to kick off their preseason with a bang, but instead, it started off with a fizzle. We'll see where he goes from here.
