Default Pretty Happy

I liked what I saw today. I feel better today than I felt after the Cin win last week. You can't win 'em all. It was a great and fun game.

1. I liked the O-line play
2. I like the pass D
3. I liked the play of Sanders and Brown...Ward is fading away. Maybe he should retire after this year. In the past, he would have been a target on that last play.
4. Wallace still has his stuff.
5. I liked BAs play calling better as the game went on. This is what we will need for the playoffs.
6. Ben seems to be getting a little better at getting the ball out of his hands.

I think we have potential to get to the championship game and give the Pats a run.

The O-line played much better. Ben had all day at times.

How about that Essex. He loses his RG job then then comes in and plays LT well.

I really like Flozelle. Too bad he is so old. I hope he can give us one more year next year. He is under contract.

What's wrong with Ward?

It's one game for the O-line, lets not get too happy. Ward plays better when teams play zone defense against us. Father time has caught up. He'll still make his play's.

Yeah...Ward may want to switch to slot WR...not trying to be rude but it is what it is. If not they should just make sure to use 3 or 4 WR sets all the time so Wallace can get some help. (They mostly did that today anyway)

I've been impressed with the O-line (except the holding penalties) in general this season. In other games, the WRs were taking too long to get open.

Ben is really starting to gain confidence in Sanders. I'd like to see them send him deep sometimes.

BTW...You guys saw Cromartie holding Sanders like Crazy on the last play right? I wish Ben had thrown it to him. It was past 5 yards because the LOS was the 10.

I believe they would have called that on the Steelers...

They held our receivers at least a good 5 obvious times that i can count. And they didn't call any of those. I don't have faith that the refs would have made this call either.

How about Sanders? Coming up big on so many 3rd downs. He might exceed Holmes one day.

im excited by how well the offensive line played but a little down on how Ben played. he seemed inacurate at times. i also dont like how jets, patriots and saints all beat us. hopefully we can win our last 2 and take the division because i really dont want to have to play in baltimore again. there getting better and really clicking at the right time and could be real scary in the playoffs.

as for the line and mendenhall, they looked great against a top defense. if ben could start playing better we could beat anyone
