Defense makes good strides -- Offense ...like I said Defense made good strides
Tackling : A+ HUGE improvement. Saw some good physical wins here tonight
Persuit : A - zeroed in on the ball carrier and swarmed
Focus: : A Everubody was set and motors running
Special mentions : Rolle was everywhere
Beason is a REAL LB & Leader
Defensive Line Good job in containing THE best RB in the Leaugue
Special mention: Hillis SAVED OUR Arse
Did i mention Hillis ?
Eli Didn't get picked off YAY !
Hillis looked pretty good, made a few big plays too
Defensive line played the run very well. Played with the lead for most of the game and Freeman threw the ball about 2,225 times but still only one sack? That is a little concerning. Especially since Tuck told us that if they were up by 2 scores then they would get sacks.
Our receivers dropped several passes...especially NIcks. But all in all they played well as a unit.
Our OL is still absolutely horrendous. Had some decent pass blocking at times but can't run black to save their lives.
Watching our special teams makes me wonder why nobody has started a Fire Tom Quinn thread. They are putred
Fewell's strategy. may have bet that Freeman did not have enough reps with the receivers and the playbook , so naturally put the ball in the hands of the best RB in the NFL. the D-Line met that challenge pretty well ! And the addition of Beason has been nothing less then a miracle find... Hope he stays healthy.

I can't believe that so many people here are praising our run defense after this game.
Freeman still completed a bunch of passes because our defensive line can barely get any pressure. This, even with five or six guys rushing.
Of all people, Tuck actually looked okay last night.
I'm still not sure why DMoore is not getting more time.
The D hasnt been the problem all year (regardless what some say)... Our D has to play 2 Os a game... Or special teams... Soon as this O starts playing like they are getting paid we win games... im afraid its to late now though....
Our run defense has been pretty good all season. Especially the interior.

Oh, I must have missed the games that you have been watching.
