    These stick out for me.

    1: Ebner's Interception
    Even though the actual interception wasn't anything spectacular, he showed the mental awareness to look back at the QB, find the ball, stay in position to make the play and get some nice yards after the catch. These are the things a coach looks for in a DB. Situational awareness is vital to the position. DBs that are more concerned with making the highlight hit AFTER THE CATCH like Merriweather and Tebucky Jones will always be 2nd rate. BUT...once Nate gets comfortable in the position, he's going to lay some lumber. He makes the 53.

    2: Branch's Receptions
    It was so nice to see routes run by a polished veteran. The smoothness and ability to get open under situations when the QB is stressed is so valuable. Branch knows this system well and it showed with his receptions in the TB game. It's no surprise he will make the roster.

    3: Silvestro's TD Catch
    This guy ran a perfect route just over the goal line and caught a smoking bullet. It was really cool! To use a G.B.ism, "I would not be shocked if he made the final roster." If they keep 4 TEs, Shiancoe is out and Fells/Silvestro are in. He spent last year on the practice squad so had time to FIO. He's a decent blocker and played SLB at Rutgers. He'll be active in the Giants game and will be a player to watch.

    What plays stick out for you?

    Mallett to Holley @ Tampa was good play by them both.

    Chandler Jones against Bushrod - pretty much all of the plays, he was beating a probowl LT like he was Wayne Hunter!

    Jeff Demps run @ Tampa, went between the tackles initially before showing that sprint speed to pick up 29 yards in really a quite spectacular fashion, I can't wait to see him play some more!

    The Gregory interception. It was a good team play, starting with a Mayo tip to the cool headed play by the veteran Gregory to stick with the bounce.
