Good
- Minimized penalties
- Improved 3rd down efficiency (7/12)
- Forcing turnovers & capitalizing on them by scoring
- Solid pass blocking
- More balanced offensive attack
- McFadden finding holes & fighting for every single inch. Superb effort.
- Marcel Reece sighting
- The emergence of Brandon Myers
- Palmer. Other than the INT, he's been very solid all 3 games for us this season. He closed the game for us today.
- Seabass being Seabass

Bad
- Lack of pressure/pass rush on Big Ben
- Numerous missed calls by refs
- Our secondary. To say it's thin would be an understatement.


Ugly
- Mundy lunging himself into DHB for a helmet to helmet collision. No flag, but he will be fined. Hopefully DHB will be ok. He had a similar neck injury last season when he was carted off the field vs MIN.
- Moore tripping on first play of the game resulting in a Palmer INT

Things looked ugly at first, but this team fought hard & finished the game in the end. Definitely a feel good win for us going forward. I'm hoping the offense continues to get more comfortable with each other & the success continues to grow.

More to come.

Good:

-Palmer - Stud today. 3 TD. INT was due to Moore slipping in that damn dirt infield.

-DMAC - Set the pace early. Grinded out some runs late.

-Oline - Opened lanes. Picked up the pass pro in the 2nd half.

-Penalties - Finally starting to play smart.

-Run D - Steelers are not good on the ground, but they didn't let them get going

-STs - 51 kick return from Goodson Jano money on the game winner.

Bad:

-Pass rush - Not going to win many games this way.

-Coverage - Not breaking on the ball and making plays. Receivers running open all day.

Ugly:

-Replacement Refs - gave Steelers a go ahead TD after an obvious pick play on 4th down. DHB helmet to helmet no call. That's player safety. A major issue and they blew the call.

+1

If it weren't for those turnovers we don't win. Ben and those WRs had us no problem, those turnovers were huge.

I think we ran better blitzes in the 4th so shout out to everyone involved with that. But at the same time our ST's almost let up a TD again so they really need to improve on that.

No one mentioned the Bryant, Ro or Pat Lee for the FF's. Someone also had one on Wallace too.

Wheeler had a few nice plays too. One ugly one though.

Hagan deserves a mention for being so clutch as well. Dmoe too.

That's about all I can think of that hasn't been mentioned yet.

It's going to be nice to do this list this week.

Good:

- Palmer - I don't think anything could be said that probably hasn't.
- McFadden - Finally did something
- O-Line - Played well. If they play like that all year, I'd be confident.
- Penalties or lack there of. Teh REfZ is out too get uz!!! NFl h8s da Rayders!11!!


Bad:

- I'd like to see more consistency out of our defense. They just didn't impress at all. Literally no pressure all game.
- Tyvon Branch - I know I lit a fire under you guys w/ all my talks about him over the offseason but has anyone been paying attention?? Has anyone noticed how very average he is? I put him in the bad b/c dude REALLY needs to go to Geometry class. He takes the worst angles I've seen. I can't specifically remember what plays they were but he infuriated me.

Ugly:

I really can't think of anything aside from Bey getting hurt. I hope he's good to go after some time....
