PASSING GAME Ok, the corners were largely untested. Losman and the Buffalo receivers weren't a huge threat. But the corners did hold their own. I think that our pass-rush will be MUCH better with Vrabel back outside instead of Banta-Cain. RUNNING GAME See who made the tackles: Seau,Vrabel,Harrison, and Wilson. Buffalo ran right at us, and we held the middle. Buffalo has a fine running game. We all but stopped them. Seau was a huge pickup. He and Bruschi will have FUN stopping teams up the middle. This also means that Colvin and Banta-Cain were reasonable at forcing runners to the inside. OVERALL I think a lot will improve with Bruschi back, and Vrabel moved outside. The open issue is how this team will react to this year's injuries. Also, we need to see the corners in action against a balanced or passing offense.
