Nick has yet to fill out a bio.
I have no idea why he didn't get the carries. Our game plan seemed to be all over the place and it was ugly. They don't trust him in short distance or pass blocking at all, but that shouldn't equal 5 carries. We got away from our game plan after the 1st quarter, which blew my mind.
I think Freeman's weapons are here, they're just young and developing. plus I don't have enough faith in Greg Olsen to get them utilized. Benn and Briscoe are both really talented but only in their second years. but I agree that the other south teams losing was a gift, and basically made our game a 5th preseason game. still sucks to start 0-1 but it is what it is.
yeah those short things are pretty frustrating to watch as an opposing fan, but they're effective and you can't blame the coach for calling them when they're working. talib's pick 6 was a sort of gift, but you've got to credit him with being in the right spot. it was a bad throw by stafford, but bad luck that it was a pick 6. calvin johnson is an absolute freak, that's the second year in a row i've seen him up close and in person, and i was even more impressed with him this year than last. talib had perfect coverage on the fade, but CJ is too sick.
i would love to have the lions and bucs match up in the playoffs, i think it'd be a hell of a game. hopefully by then our 2 ends and middle linebacker would be adjusted to the NFL so we could be a little more aggressive on defense. good luck to the Lions, i do have family in Michigan that are big lions fans so i'll be rooting for them to make some noise. you definitely deserved the W. oh yeah, and go Gators, i'll hopefully be transferring there next year.
neither of those teams are elite home boy. but you guys did out play us for sure, we beat up on ourselves big time and our play calling was epicly bad. blount only getting 5 carries was a gift for you guys, wrapped by Greg Olson. but before today I never realized how reliant Stafford is on Calvin to bail him out. we didn't get Staffords jersey dirty at all, let him do his check downs and short passes. we couldn't seem to tackle either, so there was a ton of YAC.
also i don't know why we seem to have an answer for Suh, but we really kept him from making any plays. i think our O line did a little better than expected. good win, but chicago looked wicked good as well. this year yall may have the best divison, but last year there's no question who the better division was.
