UPON FURTHER REVIEW


Hey Nation - just glad to have seen such an intensely fought and clean first game from the Silver and Black!

This season my plan is to take a couple of days to think over the game and give some highlights and some low lights with a short conclusion.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Andre Gurode and Alex Barron both had some major plays on offense - opening holes and in Barron's case really protected the edge well in the passing game. Just their addition and versatility makes us deeper and more stout in 2013!
  • Rashard Jennings - man, this guy ran hard. Along with a promising debut for Latavius Murray - there is much more depth and size at the RB position.
  • Tyvon Branch - maybe for the first time I really saw his value. He played with such confidence and poise in the defensive backfield - his blocked FG was beautiful.
  • Special Teams - we are stacked. Our punters, Seabass and our returners all looked great. Shout out to young Jenkins (Greg) who looked like a young Cribbs! A case can be made they won the game for the S & B.
  • WR play - Moore, Butler, Streater, Sessions, Criner - well - I was/am impressed!
  • Greg Olsen using the player's strength!
  • Team spirit - this was amazing - Dallas had already played - played their starters game 2 minutes - we kept at it and had not real drop off in the game. Very clean for a first action!
LOWLIGHTS:
  • QB turnovers - uggh!
  • Starting guards got pushed around - absolutely weak. DMAC had nowhere to go!
  • Pass Rush - double uggh! Wow - I know we were missing the starters, but wow, if we have to blitz this much in the season?
Obviously, nothing is more important than winning - this is a team game. A first pre-season game is nothing more than a glorified dress-rehearsal to the real thing! We all need to take this into account. There is a lot of time to correct things mentioned. We can look to see improvement in the pass rush and OL play in the next two games. Good job overall - we see the discipline, talent and depth are improving!
