At a quick glance (I watched with a half asleep, gorgeous wife and some grumpy kids - lame combo
) I saw some good stuff.
Again despite long drives, I saw some good defensive adjustments. I'm not as worried as many here are.
Slater is solid and I think is a lock, hence Jones (who is not) running back kicks.
Ventrone makes the team, no doubt in my mind.
Lynch is a monster. 8 tackles and 0 fear. I think he and Rodney will each be responsible for some back-up WR's playing for other team this year.
O'Connell looks like Brady's successor to me.
Jacksons: great catching, can't actually walk, though...
I think he might actually get the year to prove it.
GUYTON: 10 tackles, 1 sack. Did I hear that right? If I did, he NEVER passes waivers. Lock. Buh-Bye Alexander.
BJGE is likely cut and not visiting the practice squad. That said, he looked about even with Maroney.
Lamont Jordan is not only a weapon, he's going to embarrass Al Davis. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
Anyway, those are quick hits and I may have mis-diagnosed from a difficult watching position (thank goodness for the pvr) but overall, I saw a lot to like.
Oh and can we all wave goodbye to Mr. Cassel?
What did you guys see? Looking for some thoughtful
input, mind you, not "Are you blind? Retarded? We suck. I have no toenails left. Hangover... etc..."
PS. A for effort on the Scott Pioli interview, F- for not saving until the game was over.
