I have done so many of these for preseason and get them out quick I took my time because most everyone saw the game. I think the rookies looked really good. And one play that highlighted this for me was the run stuff on 3rd and short by the goal line. On first Glance it appeared Chung filled the hole and made the play but when I watched again Brace leaned off his block and pulled him down. I think Chungs presence caused some hesitation by the back and it was enough for Brace. Also Butler shaking off the PI that lead to the TD and getting that INT on the conversion shows some charector. I really think he baited the QB too I thought he bit on the inside move but he either reacted well and stayed with the reciever or he was baiting the QB. One thought came to mind as to why we might be running a lot of 4-3 and some guys wont like my reason as they hate on old LBs but I think without Bruschi we don't really have a second ILB who is proficient at taking on guards as needed in 3-4. I think having Seau on speed dial will be huge because we might need someone other than Bru and Mayo who can do this. Maybe some of the other guys get better at it as time goes on. Merriweather continues to be the leader in the secondary and had some nice plays. I think justifibly our Olines strength is clearly pass blocking and they did fantastic at that last night. Special teams had a really good day..PR to the house, blocked FG, good coverage, and the missed FG at the end I think was caused by Akers rushing as both Butler and Chung were coming. I will stop here as I am getting redundant and its long enough already.
