Default First half observations

1) Matt Schaub is the real deal. If he can stay healthy, I think we've found our franchise QB. His pocket awareness is amazing. He looks off the defenders. He drops back smoothly, delivers the ball smoothly, and trusts his receivers. His accuracy this year is greatly improved. On 3rd downs he steps up even more than usual

2) Kevin Walter and Andre Davis are a legit WR duo in the NFL. Add in AJ and we've got one of the top receiving corps in the league. They may not be flashy, but the fulfill their duties with ease

3) Owen Daniels is excellent. He blocks, he runs, he catches. What more can I say?

4) David Anderson jumped JJ in the depth chart tonight. He came in on the 3rd down play. JJ stayed on the bench

5) Our pass blocking is pretty good. DB is picking up the schemes quickly

6) I think Chris Brown did pretty well. He ran really hard, he broke tackles, and had a 15 yarder taken back. I think he played much better than his stats would indicate

7) Jacque Reeves is a liability in coverage. He can stay with receivers as good as anyone, but he has minimal ball skills. He covers blind

8) Our pass rush is disapointing. Mario made a couple of penetrations, but I didn't see anything else from anyone else

9) Greenwoods football IQ is a liability. I can't believe Im saying this. I love Greendwood. But i've seen him blow coverage twice this preseason already

10) Will Demps should make the probowl this year. He has a lot of football smarts. He takes good angles and tackles with athority



can't wait for the 2nd half. And remember, this is only preseason, so this might all mean nothing!!

JJ can't hold onto a football. He's already fumbled 3 times in 2 preseason games.

Zac played with the first team and got a couple of tackles. The feed I was watching wasn't good enough for me to be able to tell if he was having problems or not. I can't wait to see it on NFLN.

He got a good stop on one of those dreaded swing passes.

I liked what I saw from Zach Diles, always around the ball & physical. Duane Brown is gonna be a franchise tackle, yes. Molden is going to be the starting cb before the end of the season. Slayton looks more like a workhorse than I expected. Schuab looks great when he has protection & now he's got weapons. seeing Gibbs on the sideline is reassuring

Matt Schaub looked crisp and very much in rhythm...can't wait to see him connect with A. Johnson
