Offense The O looked very good in the first half. We seem to rarely if ever get off to a quick start but throughout the first half Schuab and Co. were virtually unstoppable. Schaub Schaub made twice as many mistakes as last week. By my count that's about 6 mistakes. When the man has time... oh my goodness. He looks incredibly comfortable. He does a wonderful job of reading the D and throwing to somebody for a positive gain. Sometimes he's reading and may be locked into his periphery and miss some long shots down field but I think we can all agree that he has no shortage of deep throws so I'm having a hard time complaining about that aspect of his game. If I had to point out mistakes it would be strangely inaccurate 3 or 4 times a game. Usually when under pressure. He has a tendency to throw low to wide open receivers in the flat but they almost always dig it up and get positive yards. In the second half there were mistakes and missed assignments and the Offense performed sluggishly but when it came down to it Schaub (and Slaton) carried this team down the field and put them in position to score (twice). Matt held the ball too long once but for the most part it was mistakes by the O Line that seemed to slow this attack, not Schaub. You ever notice how surprising it is when one of our receivers drops a pass? They are good, but there's more to it than that. Slaton go to 3:40 in our final drive. Watch his cut between 55 and 64 he anticipates 64 gaining leverage and makes a cut that looks like he's cutting right into a mess but somehow he slides through this spot and then continues down the field. It reminded me of that run against Cincy last year. All the cuts are simple but brilliant. He seems to be getting back into the groove. His pass protection was as good as I've seen it. Brown didn't look to great but he didn't get many opportunities. A change of pace back seems less effective in this offense to me because so much of it is dependent on rhythm. Dude almost cried after the game. I'm done commenting on his injury history until he get's hurt. I like that heart. Leach I would love to say something other than he's good but there's nothing else to say. He is an excellent lead blocker. He's getting more looks out of the backfield as a dump off and he makes the catch. [bJohnson[/b] Didn't do anything amazing this game but caught everything thrown to him. Was doubled the entire game. See the results below... Walter All the folks who said things like "Walter is a decent #2 but I look for Jones or someone else to replace him soon. Take note of what a key kog this guy is. He's tough, quick, sure handed and our best blocker at that position. I really got a sense that with him back in the game this pass offense takes another step forward. After 80 got hurt 2 years ago the entire corps got better. Now 83 was out for 2 games and Jones just got better. Well, 83 is back! I have no issue with the pass interference call. I don't think it was intentional but he did get in the way. Jones made another tough catch in the endzone... hmmm what have we got here? Thanks to KevinS Walter. Glad you're feeling better now but we have gained another target in your absence. Daniels I'm concerned about his blocking. I don't feel like it's up to par with where he was at last season. He's getting blown up too frequently and it appears to be a key position in this offense because when he looses on his guy the play tends to die at the line of scrimmage. Dreesen was solid and caught everything thrown to him. But that's kind of the case with all these guys. Give me Casey!!! (just kidding) This guy is the most underappreciated guy on this team. And don't forget he's long snapping too! Brown played extremely well for the 3rd week in a row. One very costly false start in the 4th quarter. STUDdard ok, here goes... KASEY STUDDARD PLAYED A DAMN GOOD FOOTBALL GAME. HE LOOKED VERY GOOD AGAINST THE RUN. There, I got that off my chest. He got blown up once I think and was sloppy out of position a few times but never got burned for it that I could find. I was very impressed with him on run plays where he's driving his guy very hard. Quite surprised and impressed. I can say with confidence that I think he will help the run game improve. I cannot say the same thing for the pass protection but he didn't look as awful as he has in the past. Most improved to say the least. Meyers has been very consistent and continued that today. He get's blown up 1 or 2 times a game (usually at inopportune times) but mostly does a serviceable job. If he notices that ball laying in the endzone who knows what would have happened. Briesel I still can't find anything to say about this guy. He doesn't seem to screw up much and gets his job done every week. Winston looked very good this week. Much better in pass protection. The OLine overall looked fairly good but I would say that they had a bad quarter and in the end that may have cost us the game. False starts and busted pass protection showed up in the 3rd when they had played very well up until that point. As I said it may have cost us the game we could have slowed the Jags down if we get some drives going in the 3rd. Well, that and the defense could have helped.
