    We see a lot of talk about specific players, but Joe Marciano's bunch played lights out today. We'll need more of that from here on out.

    Also, my queasiness when Jacoby fields punts is all but gone.

    Most of ST played well. Hartmann has had better days. Considering we had to use him, though, more often than usual, I'll let this performance slide.

    I thought all of his punts were spot on and really encouraging. He had a beauty of a 60 yarder and he pinned the Jags inside the 20 quite a bit.

    Penalties were virtually non-existent as well. Jackson and McCain showed superb speed and tackling. I was fairly happy with the whole unit. Now McMannis and Jones need to at least get us closer to FG range if they don't finish the job themselves.

    He did shank a 23 yard punt, which led to a Jax FG. But like I said, I'll let it slide since he had to make so much punts and he did have alot of nice ones yesterday.

    If Jacoby and Mac don't get those returns, we don't score squat.

    Hartmann's stats for the game were pretty impressive. I can forgive one bad punt.

    Punting..............NO AVG I20 LG
    B. Hartmann........10 41.2 3 56

    The whole ST did a great job! Even Shiloh! Here's some of the contributions:
