I thought this guy was considered "too green" and that Gardner Minshew would start the season. But I'm excited to see him play.

hope it doesn't break his confidence.

on tv they talk about all the best right now did not start right away.

is it true he didn't play much in college either?

Yeah, he only started 13 games in college. It's going to be really interesting to see how he handles starting in the NFL from day one.

I worry for him and CJ Stroud. But somehow I think Bryce Young is going to play well from the get go. What do you think?


When I see this picture, all is forgiven.

I’m honestly shocked that they’re starting him instead of sitting him behind Minshew to learn for awhile and get him used to the NFL.

He’s loaded with athletic ability, but he’s green as hell and had a 53% completion rate in college.

Minshew has proven to be serviceable, but inconsistent. I would still start him, at least for the first half of the season, while letting Richardson ride the pine and learn. This is how you ruin a guy.

Minshew is nothing special, but he’s competent.

Makes more sense to start Minshew and have AR take some snaps in situations where he can get some reps in without having to worry about hurting the team with the inevitable mistakes he’s going to make as a rookie.

Not that the Colts are ahead often.

Titans WR Treylon Burks carted off with apparent leg injury​


EAGAN, Minn. -- The Tennessee Titans got a scare when wide receiver Treylon Burks went down during a joint practice with the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday.

Burks got open in the secondary and caught a deep pass from quarterback Ryan Tannehill during the team period. After making the catch, Burks' forward momentum caused him to stumble before losing his balance and somersaulting into the end zone.

He got up and spiked the ball in frustration. The Titans trainers came over to him and helped him off the field. They had Burks lay on the ground as they looked at his left leg before carting him off the field.

Teammates DeAndre Hopkins and Derrick Henry, along with general manager Ran Carthon, came over to console Burks as he was being placed on the cart.

"You hate seeing that. We'll find out more information and see what's really going on, but hopefully he's going to be all right," Tannehill told reporters. "He seemed obviously upset and understandably so. Our thoughts and prayers are with him right now, and hopefully it's not too bad."

Burks had 33 catches for 444 yards and a touchdown in 11 games as a rookie last season.

You hate to see it @gloomy.

Now there is even more pressure on King Henry and DeAndre Hopkins to produce.

Looks like we should watch First Take on Mondays & Tuesdays and then Undisputed 2.0 the rest of the week.
