I assume you didn't watch the game, because if you did, you have found O'Connel's play to be the only thing that stopped you from slitting your wrists after 2 quarters of Matt "Deer in headlights" Cassell.
I have to admit that I was pretty downtrodden when O'Connel threw a pick on his first passing attempt, especially since I had been screaming at my television for over a quarter for BB to get that baffoon Cassell out of there.
Still, after that mistake, he played very well IMO. When he was in there, the team started to get into some kind of rythm where they were at least making it sporting. With Cassell in there, the team looked flat and just competely lost.
CJ Jones had his moments, but I also saw him drop a couple passes that he should have caught.
Hanson did indeed look good. I hope he makes me eat crow all season.
Sammy Morris didn't look that great, but had limited opportunities.
Crable & Mayo are for real.
Why was the short zone open all night on our defense? Either we were playing prevent or the LBs were not covering the short routes. It was really getting old by the 3rd quarter.
