The o line- I see a lot of complaining but I thought the o line looked a LOT better than I expected, all the units gave excellent pass protection, the one sack was completely on yates. my biggest concern is all the bad snaps that have been going on in game and in practice. I will talk about run blocking soon......2. I was shocked in general how much we threw the ball, not just with ryan but with all qbs. I thought we would run the ball even more.3. Julio Jones- he looked like a man among boys out there, he had their defense shaking.4. LEVINE TOILOLO- I have been the driver and basically his only passenger on his fan bus. Dude showed out and once again is one of the best blockers we got o line or not, on the couple of good run plays he sprung the run. He had a couple of good catches and the biggest surprise to me is he now actually has a little bit of speed.5. The starting front seven- Even though it was only 2 series the starting front 7 on defense looked real good. If KOG is a running back snob I am a lb snob, and last yr I thought we had the worst unit in the league, and I wasnt sure that they would be all that great this yr, but they might prove me wrong. Bartu still looks really bad though.6. Jalen Collins- Got beat like a drum yes, but its not from a lack of skill, he also flashed a couple of times and was not afraid to take on a rb. he is a project but a project that I think will pan out.7 Hardy- Hardy is looking real good so far. he had one bad play.8. Tj Yates- is HORRIBLE. does not even look like a qb, he seems shook. I hate the way he throws the ball and he is just god awful, dude almost got hardy's head taken off. Told yall boys how bad he was from my first camp observation. I am not saying sean is the answer but at least he looked like a qb9. fringe Players that flashed to me- Tyler star, wow I thought this guy would never amount to anything, but he played well. I could see him being a core special teamer and some decent depth. If tyler looked descent than Allen Bradford looked like a guy that could truly start I loved his play. Kevin white looked like a cb out there, really liked what I saw.10. Special Teams- Speaking of special teams wow once again we have a great unit in the making, from bosher to bryant to the coverage we are flying and hitting.11. Run blocking- Told yall I would get to it, It was not great but here is an encouraging sign to me at least. when we needed to get a first down we did. when we needed to punch the ball into the endzone we did, thats better than last yr, its also bc the rbs could not break tackles. I think Jerome smith looked a lot better than ford. Overall I was I actually shocked we ran the ball as well as we did. thats how low my expectations wereIm sure I will think of more and I plan on watching most of the game again.
