Definitely a great list. Learned a lot!

Has been some good stories on social media about Jake Kumerow, Michael Joseph and Joe Callahan who are under the radar, but still in the league.

Jerrell Freeman of UMHB had a decent run, playing for 7 seasons with the Titans, Colts and Bears as well as 3 seasons in the CFL with the Roughriders.

Joe Callahan played the second half for the Eagles in their game against the Steelers tonight.  After a slow start including a fumble, he had a pretty good run of plays to finish the game up.  Once he got warmed up and moved around, he was a lot more effective.

Watched Callahan, actually had 2 fumbles and one lost with a pass rating of 60.2, at least no INTs. I think he is playing for a shot somewhere else as I don't see him making it with the Eagles unless there is an injury to one of the other 3 QBs. I hope I am wrong, as I like his attitude and he has mobility and seems to have good field presence.

I had to turn it off! I was too nervous for him. That's good he cleaned it up. One of those fumbles he was charged with was a snap over his head. The other one the defender flat out beat the tackle (Mailata?). Hopefully he can clean it up next week and the week after in Cleveland (I am going to try and get there).

While it’s great that Callahan is here, the facts are that The 3 qb positions are set.  Hopefully he can do well enough to be picked up by another team (barring an injury to an Eagles qb).

I believe that Joe was signed for the practice squad IIRC.  All he can do is make each snap count.  When he starts moving his opportunities open up.  A couple throws showed his slinger style though which can be tricky to say the least.  Once again, the announcers were impressed with his abilities which is always good to see.

  Our local NFL team runs brief league stats on the smaller boards during the games and it looks as though Jake Kumerow had quite a game against the Steelers this week. As a matter of fact he was (as of last night) the leading receiver in the league for the first two preseason games. Do any of the WIAC folks have details?

No real details other than he's had a pretty strong camp and seems to be liked by that insurance salesman QB up there. He had a long touchdown the first game and now the 82 yarder. Hopefully he didn't seriously injure his shoulder.
