Starting offense=C-...too many dropped passes and poor play calling
Starting defense=B...you can tell progress has been made
Special teams...B+...still need to do better on returns

c-....I did expect more. The defense started out looking good though. Let's hope the offense can keep the D off the field for longer than a 4 down series.

It just feels like same shit different day to me.

Wait until the THIRD.

Cassel did great. Receiving corps was questionable as expected. Playbook was put together by the maintenance staff.

Defense did better than expected, though I didn't like seeing Flowers get juked in the beginning. He did make some good plays towards the end though.
Good run defense.

C+

I don't think you can grade the starting O as a unit. Haley is too busy disciplining Bowe and Bradley and it really limited Cassel. The rain didn't help much either. LJ looked ok.

I liked what I saw. There wasn't much passing, but he did really well while scrambling under pressure.

I agree Mays and Johnson were always where the ball was at and made good tackles.

Outside the 2nd drive where they over pursued ... they played well.... they should be the leading tacklers in a 34 d. and they were. Wont touch what the offense did, but it wasnt the starting O ..... rain played a part in the play calling...... etc....... Will wait to see what the next game holds until I grade the offense. Dont see Bowe not starting ........ weather wont be a factor. All in all... guys learning new systems, both offense and defense.... Will there be improvement next week. thats the real grade.

Starters (loosely) Offense--Incomplete
--Cassell looked great to me. He was fluid and accurate. Just no one to throw to and very limited pass attempts. Dropped passes killed it, but those receivers likely won't be on the team anyways.
--LJ looked decent. Considering how he gets better as the game goes on and the fact that he got 4 carries doesn't really show much at all.
--Why did they play an ultra conservative approach to start the game?? Was it because of the weather or no receivers? Very disappointed in that.
**Croyle and Thigpen both looked really good. Trade bait? Bowe and Bradley also looked excellent with the 2nd/3rd team. Battle impressed as did Savage (minus the stupid fumble)

Defense (starters) --B+
--Gave up the TD but shouldn't have been in that position with that awful call.
--LB's looked great! DJ was ALL OVER the field. Tamba looked better than I expected. Mayes? came out of no where and was making plays on the field.
--Flowers is a beast!
--Dline looked pretty good and I loved the Run defense (starters).
--Handled the Bootleg with ease...automatically should give an A for that.
--Pressure...they had 2 sacks early and showed pretty good pressure throughout the night.

Special Teams---D
--Kicking game: FG kicker might be the real deal. Only one game but considering everything I've read about his training camp and the conditions out there, I have reason to be excited.
--Return game is GOD AWFUL still.
--The botched punt, turned into a first down was pitiful.

Overall, I was happy just to watch football. I was happy with what I saw, especially considering that it's a new scheme, new players and the rainy conditions.
