Overall the team did better than I thought they would. WR - Grade=B. Okay, I'm eating crow about JJ. I've been saying that he would need time to develop and that we should have drafted someone else. He proved me wrong & I'm happy about that. Of course AJ looked good and Andre Davis also surprised me. KW didn't look bad........ TE - Grade=A. Daniels and Putzier shined. Probably strongest position on team. Oline - Grade=D. Lousy on run blocking. Had "some" plays when they gave the QB time to throw but, not many. Weakest part of this team and you know I've been harping that the team did virtually nothing to improve them this off-season. Our dlineman, Tim Bulman, who is reported to have been tearing up our oline in camp did nothing in this game, which doesn't speak well for our oline. QB - Grade=C+. Many are posting how great Shaub looked and I think he looked just like an average QB. We should have expected more because Kubes was quoted when the trade was made as saying that he could step in right then and there and run this team. As I have posted, I think it will take several weeks, maybe 1/2 season, for him to be comfortable ...... if the oline allows him to. Sage looked good enough to run this team, as he did last year. Schaub needs to step it up or Sage may earn his spot .... not that they would give it to him but, he may earn it. I don't think we will ever see Van Pelt again and I was surprised that they put him back out there after his 1st series. He showed no signs of being an NFL QB. RB - Grade=C-. With a lousy oline it is hard to grade them. Lundy did not look very good and I believe Chris Taylor would have made an impact on this team. Gado made some nice catches and I hope to see more of Abbatte. (However, we do need him at OLB) DLine - Grade=C. I'm sorry but, our starting dline did not look good. MW came within 5 yards of the QB once (and they came out throwing the ball) and Amobi was not a factor. I didn't hear TJ's name called once. As I posted last year; Kalu, Maddox, Cochran, and Malone KNOW how to play Dline and have outplayed their purebred counterparts in virtually every game. Somebody named Robinson got a sack late in the game and very active. Bulman was a non-factor and maybe he is still struggling with his injury. MLB - Grade=B+. DROY took up where he left off last year and Diles looks like he will be a good backup, at least. OLB - Grade=D. They looked about like last year. Below average. Orr looked good late in the game. CB - Grade=B. DROB looked good and, although Bennett got burned a couple of times, looked better than I thought he would. S - Grade=C. Not bad .... which is better than last year. Not sure how losing Earl will effect the grade in future games. Hutchings had the int and some of the other youngsters got to play without causing any obvious pain to the team. Appears to be potential to get better. ST - Grade=A+. The only way to have a better special teams day would have been to take a return to the house. Good job guys & coach! Coaching - Grade=A. Much smoother job than last year. The oline kept alot of well called plays from developing. I really can't blame the coaching for anything in this game, it was a lack of execution by both lines that hurt this team in this game. My points in the offseason that all we did was add a bunch of cast offs (except Ahman) from other teams played true in this game .... as NONE of our FA signings did anything to be excited about. At this point, without considerable improvement from both lines and OLB, my opinion is that we will win 5-7 games this year. Okay that's my take on it, what's yours?
