Re: the official post game thread
Dowling: For a rookie starting on the outside in his 1st game... i was very happy with his solid play. You saw tonight with Miami's rookie how an NFL offense can pick on a rookie.
Connoly: Great job stepping in for koppen and not missing a beat
Solder: Handled Wake all game except for that one Pressure where he was called for holding. The Sack Wake got Solder blocked him initially it was just a great 2nd effort by Wake
TE's: What can you say? better TE pair in the NFL? i can't think of any.
Defense: Came out a bit sloppy. We had some nice stops but once again went into our prevent D late in the game and were torched consistently.
Penalties: right or wrong we game alot of penalty yardage away today and it's not good enough for a team who aims to be perfect every time they step on the field.
In saying all of this, great to go into a division rival's home and come away with the W. TB was on fire again today, that INT was a freak of nature and not his fault. I have high hopes that this defense can grow to become a very solid unit... just need to solidify the middle of the field.
Solid 1st game guys
