    Anybody watching this?

    I haven't seen anything noteworthy yet. I'm assuming these are the "replacement" officials. Not much laundry on the field. Arizona had a Harbaugh-esque offensive package (lots of shifts in power sets) on their scoring drive.
    Rob Housler playing well and getting praise for Arizona.

    Andy Tanner had two nice catches from Chase Daniel. One was 17 yards, not sure how long the other one was but it was a nice catch, looked a little behind and he had to jump and twist to grab it. He had a good career at Midwestern State, hes 6'0 but not sure what his other measurables are.

    Scott Shanle has looked good and remains the starter at OLB which angers dwfs who think they need more affleticism, so pretty much a repeat of the last 5 years. They bring a ton of linebackers in, and he performs better.

    Chase Daniel looks really good.
    I suspect the Saints offense with Daniel in there is what Washington will try to be this season. Unfortunately, I bet it will work. NFL defense has been slow to adjust to the offensive advances made in college.

    Blake Gideon with a leaping grab for the interception from a ball that Chase Daniel threw (who was having a great night before hand 15 of 19 for 200 yards), the announcer said the usual 'not the biggest or the fastest" although he is 6 ft 204 pounds with speed around high 4.5 low 4.6 which is what most safeties in the league look like. Although there are exceptions, like Eric Weddle who has cornerback speed and size of the average cornerback.

    Roman Harper on the other side who is mentioned as a pro bowler is a shade under 6 ft and a few pounds under 200 and is slower.

    Arizona doesn't have the runningbacks to run the offense they're attempting. They all have poor feet. Danny Woodhead could turn these wasted plays into gains.
