MAC ATTACK: There is safety Clayton Fejedelem who has solidified himself as a Pro Bowl special teams player and now back-up safety Tony McRae is emerging as a special teams maven. He’s made his mark as a gunner covering punts and leads the team with four teams tackles already.

 

And Simmons says he should also have a blocked field goal. McRae looked like he made the play of the game Sunday when he screeched off the left edge untouched and blocked Matt Bryant’s 37-yarder with 4:18 left. When safety Shawn Williams recovered it looked like all the Bengals needed was a field goal to win.

But McRae was called offsides and even though both TV and radio a nalysts agreed with the call, Simmons was adamant McRae’s play was legit. He’s in charge of sending in disputed calls to the league and believe that was on the list.

And he’s not so sure McRae was offsides the second time, either, when Bryant kicked the 32-yarder to give Atlanta the 36-31 lead, which was the call.

“He’s got all the intangibles you want,” Simmons said of the 5-10, 185-pound McRae. “He’s tough, he’s a fighter. He’s smart. He’s got little man’s complex. He likes it when people don’t believe in him.”

But the Bengals believe in him. It was as clean as a play as you’ll get. McRae apparently timed it so well he even fooled the refs.

 

“Film study,” Simmons said. “You can see that’s a play where he clearly studied the tape. Ask him.”

McRae, feisty as ever, shot back.

“No, no. Ask Darrin.”

I'm not saying he'll turn out the same way down the road, but right now, he looks exactly like Kapernick did when he first came into the league and set the world on fire ....they look like the exact same player, IMO.

Mahomes is not a runner. Guy moves around exceptionally well but is always looking downfield. Very accurate passer unlike Kaepernick who completed less than 60% of his passes.  Its why I think Mayfield will be the best QB from last draft; extremely accurate passer who is always looking downfield.
