I gotta say not totally impressed.. Defense played well... run D wasn't great. Mc Donald going down could be a bad loss for the D. We had no pass rushwhat so ever. Kap has looked terrible 3 weeks now. The wr's awful. Run game was great.. other than that we don't look like contenders at all.
Still wondering how we scored 34 points with 6 TOTAL COMPLETIONS FOR THE GAME
! LOL. Wow...seriously though, the ST coverage units were on fire last night, Brock played incredible, running game did enough, solid run blocking game for the OL, etc. But yeah, still get run on way too easy against power backs (is it that hard to play a 4-man DL or get some more beef inside?)...props to all the backups who played well to VERY well last night. Now, let's heal up and start getting guys back healthy.
PS: Was not happy with how Fangio used Brooks last night...kept him at the SAM all night (remember he had 50% of the snaps at WILL last game and had 1.5 sacks from there)...but I could "see" they were using Brooks (AKA the "Accordion") to crash down inside and force Shaub out on the run and swing the LDE "outside" to chase him. This was actually smart b/c Schaub is something like 30% passing out on the edges but 60% in the pocket. That said, would have liked to see more pressure from the WILL (if not Brooks) from Skuta/Lemonier.
