It was a good experience for them. We can not expect to simply manage the game constantly in the lead, especially against some of the better teams.
I'm hopeful we see some improvement this week. I certainly hope to see Lestar Jean stretching the field some this week. Let's keep an eye on how many snaps he has with AJ... versus replacing him.
Jeans inability to stay healthy bothers me. Martin is a player. Perfect slot guy/KR/PR.
The defense really missed Cushings intensity/leadership when things got tough. Much more than I thought they would.
