Thought I'd watch the game on DVR and comment.
Amendola and Edelmen will be murder underneath with Thompkins and Dobson over the top, Boyce will be nasty, he'll be able to burn you both ways (4.3 forty?!) once he learns the basics.
I don't want to think about Gronk and Sudfeld (better than the Hernandez duo, yeah I said it) with Ballard paving the road and Huey being able to strictly play fullback; a 6'4" 260 pound fullback, it's almost unfair. Smashmouth? Yeah I think so...
Kelly got that first sack, Spikes cleaned up but Kelly already had him, this first team defense is scary. Remember when I said this team couldn't play a 4/3 full time because they didn't have the personnel, well they can play any defense now, they have no weakness and Armstead will make them scary deep.
Fletcher is always in the right place in coverage, he comes up to make tackles, how can one linebacker unit be so flush with talent they could afford to walk from Spikes if he gets greedy.
Vince Wilfork sniffs out screen plays, try something else.
Adrian Wilson saves a kick return TD like Truechamp pointed out, he's not makng the team, lol?!
The swarm on the sack where I think Ninck should have gotten credit for was insane, where's that "#1 defense" thread I started, I need to bump it?
Slater is on this team for a reason, great special teams tackle; text book.
Hightower could be the best MLB in football if he only played there.
Ninck just got another sack, yeah TripleOG I said he was our best sack guy.
Mallett is mobile enough to roll out and pass, Thompkins dropped a first down on his 2nd drive, when the game slows down for him he'll be great, at least he will on a team this great.
Vereen in the screen game will remind us of the old days. He can't be covered in the slot, again not fair.
Kyle Arrington lays a nice special teams hit.
Justin Green needs some work, practice squad?
Spikes got quite a few snaps with the 2nd unit.
Leon Washington runs back kicks like a rookie trying to make the team and that's why he will.
Sudfeld is badaz. Did you see the concentration on that bobble catch shaking off the defender?
Kline was a bright spot at guard in the 2nd quarter. He sprung Vereen on a long run. He opened up a lane for Mallett to pull it down and run.
Vereen dropped one there...
Ryan didn't give up the TD on that Underwood streak, he recognized the underneath receiver in zone streaking and caught him. He's been solid.
Collins laid the lumber on Ogletree to force the field goal.
Putting Bolden and Tebow in together was unfair to Bolden. Tebow is painful to watch.
And then Logan Ryan picks 6... he's better than solid, this kid will help this team and he was on the Pat's board on Wozzy's Draft Guide wasn't he, so he has to be good.
Michael Buchanan gives up the edge to easily, he needs to bulk up, maybe on the practice squad.
Collins is fast. He finds the ball. He tackles in space. He can do anything. Scary.
Fortson will be a good fourth DT.
I'm praying for Tebow... to go to Canada. Overthrow is an understatement.
I hope Beauharnais sticks to the practice squad along with Grissom, both look decent.
All I got, passing out...
