1. Carr was a little off. However, missing the two surest hands on the team(Gaffney, Armstrong) certainly hurt. I counted 4 stone drops and at least 2 balls that probably should have been caught. 2. The Oline looked very good despite the penalties. This referee crew was flag-happy. For instance, Pitts was called for a hold on a successful screen to DD in the first quarter. His hands were a little wide but it was an absolute pancake and a play that seldom is called holding. 3. The shorter drops, the quicker throws, and the added motion is going to dramatically affect the ability to avoid sacks and keep the Defense off balance. However, as a unit, the offense definitely still lacks rhythm as a result of these changes. 4. DD looks very, very good. Let's hope he can avoid injury and fumbles. If so, he's going average closer to 4.3 yards a carry this year. 5. Seth Wand looked much better last night returning to tackle. He did a good job on Ware when he was in there. He maintained his blocks better and looked like the guy I thought I saw last season. 6. By midseason, our Oline is going to be considered one of the best run-blocking lines in the NFL. 7. Our front 7 dominated the Cowboy Oline much of the game. The Cowboys caught us in a couple of blitzes late in the first half. However, the Jones touchdown was a result of CC Brown's inexperienced play. 8. Peek and Babin looked very good and very active pass rushing. Babin is very solid in all facets of the game, IMO. 9. We're going to be much more agressive defensively this year. 10. Faggins didn't have a hangover from his poor game last week. 11. Lewis Sanders doesn't look good. He may not make the roster. 12. Our special teams looks very good. Its obvious that our depth has finally caught up with the rest of the NFL. 13. Milford Brown was at the very least a servicable backup RG. 14. Greenwood and Wong won't make as many tackles as the Sharper/Foreman combo. However, they will make more plays. 15. Hollings will not make the team and Bradford should not either. 16. D. Ware isn't as good as his hype- at least not yet. 17. McKinney looks like the guy we thought we were getting four years ago. He's not getting pushed back and is winning many of his battles. 18. Buchanan is going to frustrate. Especially since Glenn looks to have plenty left in the tank. 19. After watching Denver and Indy, the AFC is very deep and very good. It will be tough to make the playoffs despite vast improvement. I count 2 teams in the AFC that wouldn't likely have winning records in the NFC: miami, cleveland, and possibly tennessee. 20. I'm ready for the season to begin!!!
