Damnit, I wish the regular season were here already! This defensive performance has me excited. Reminds me of getting Matt Schaub after all those terrible years with Carr as QB.

Defense seems to be "getting it" even in such a short time. Even if one player is blocked out, another is coming from another angle. We should have a great rotation of front 7 if Mario can get it together soon.

Chris Johnson is chemically enhanced if he thinks he'll get QB money....

4 first half sacks - 1 FF - 1 int that was called back for a penalty - several plays behind the line of scrimmage. So far our defense is looking really good. Some problems with slants, some problems with some run plays. But overall, this looks really promising.

Nading and Adibi are a little bit surprising to me... Reed is looking good. Watt is a beast. Mario still seems a bit lost. Our secondary could be better - and it should be better with Joseph out there.

On Offense, Schaub looked a little out of sync. Leinart looking really good - receivers dropping some passes. Oh and that HB is looking great - maybe we go into the season with 4 or even 5 HBs? (Foster, Ward, Tate/Slaton, new guy with funny name)

The one play they analyze is Mario getting chopped at the knees, yet I didn't really get what Chris Carter was trying to say. Said We're trying to get Mario involved then made some weird transition to Manning being a good safety...

Our d-linemen and LBs are shedding blockers. Braman #50 tossed his guy aside like a loaf of bread, but was then held or he would've had a QB sack. Ref saw it and flagged the blocker for the blatant hold.

Our rushers are employing the sort of hand-fighting and blocker-shedding techniques that we've been seeing out of training camp reports.

This defense is built for what Wade does best, and they are taking to it like gnats to sugar water.

I think they were saying that having Mario coming off the edge is going to force the QB to get rid of the ball earlier, leaving it up to our DBs to make tackles to force short gains.

That's what I thought, just weird that they picked a play that Mario was a non-factor. I guess that's beside the point though, Mario being there is the cause.

Our ones did pretty good holding the Jets to 3 for the first qtr too considering that Cushing and Joseph were out...but so were some of their guys.

But still it was a good showing and I don't remember seeing this much pressure last season ever.

Xavier Adibi loves Wade Phillips! Adibi just recorded his 2nd sack, giving them 4 sacks in first half. They had 8 in the 2010 preseason.
