Default B-Mac and Timmons

I thought these two stood out for our defense today. Timmons was stuffing the run and flying to the ball. He looked like he was playing with a chip on his shoulder. He's trying to prove that he is for real. Guess what? I'm sold. Some may think that B-Mac was getting burnt today. I would disagree with you. The guy was in perfect position on every play. White just made some great catches, but immediately after a WR would make a catch, they were going down quickly. B-Mac gives absolutely no YAC. He may be the surest tackler on our team. He also helps greatly in run support. Huge upgrade from last year (Gay). He simply doesn't miss tackles. He's a warrior, and I for one, am extremely happy he is back in the Burgh.

I think Timmons has finally found his "beast mode"

We've seen flashes, but it looked like hes got it all together now

It really did look like that. He knew where he was suppose to be, and he got there fast and loud. I loved seeing him make tackles in the backfield. Dude is a beast.

Timmons looked great. He was simply relentless. I was happy with B-Mac's performance today as well. Our whole defense looked awesome. Lets hope Big Snack can get back soon.

Why exactly did McFadden do well in your eyes? The story I read was that if Matt Ryan saw McFadden covering Roddy White, he threw it to White, period. And indeed, White had a great game at B-Mac's expense.

I'm seeing he and Gay splitting time the rest of the year the way they did in our last SB run.

Timmons is finally looking like a first-round pick. Very cool.

what he did was tackle the guy immediately and never giving up the big play. do you forget how many times gay would have his man dead to rights and whiff giving up a huge gain? lebeau left him alone on an island with a top 10 receiver allowing them to shut down the run and protect against the big play. sure he caught 13 balls but was targeted 23 out of 44 pass attempts. mostly those short quick passes. give him some credit for keeping a big play receiver to a 8.5 yard per catch average.

No one is ever on an Island in Lebeaus scheme. its 90% zone. Bmac is in cover 3 most of the time. Where he is 14 yards off the ball and is responsible for his deep third. Clark the middle third and Ike the other third.

Gay also played. He really needed to make that pick he dropped though.

Exactly what finesWard said. He didn't allow any YAC...ever. And he supports the run like a safety. He made some good tackles on Turner. The kid is tough as nails. He brings fire to this team. Stop hatin on him. Gay is not on his level. White would have had over 200 yards receiving if Gay was on him because Gay wouldn't have been able to tackle him, let alone cover him, but I thought Gay did very well. He's perfect as our
nickelback.
