I'm actually in a good mood today. Because I liked a lot of what I saw in the last game. Since most of you seem to have missed it, let me tell you what I saw:
Bradshaw with 6 yards per carry.
Beckum showing good speed running with the ball. And anyone notice how he chipped the left end before running the route? Exactly what we all wanted to see the week before. The Giants adapted.
Only two sacks allowed, one by a blitzing linebacker, to a team that had nine in the first two games.
Cofield and Tuck disrupting play after play.
The whole team shutting down one of the best running attacks in the league until garbage time.
No pass plays against them for more than 20 yards. No blown safety coverages.
A passing game that can find numerous targets. Even Steve Smith was a deep threat.
Koets playing ably, no missed blocks, just that false start, even on the safety tried to block two people when he realized an assignment was missed.
Goff continues to give up no YAC when covering TEs and RBs on pass routes.
Terrell Thomas may need to work on coverage but he cannot be beat in run support.
JPP making a play. Playing at ILB was intriguing, can you imagine trying to throw over his head if he drops back into coverage?
I see those things and think, gee, if we could just give up the stupid stuff, we could be a really hard team to beat. 1-2 means nothing.
