TheClevelandSound Posted October 10, 2010 Report Share Posted October 10, 2010 Here is what I observed from the game. I was actually at this one so I will have an even better analysis. POSITIVES: -Our defense looked like one of the best in the league. To hold the now 4-1 Atlanta Falcons to 13 points is amazing. Turner didn't beat us up as bas as I expected. Turnovers and sacks were prevalent. Props to all of them! -Play calling wasn't AS BAD as normal. I like getting more WildDawg in there and Cribbs actually throwing a pass. That needs to happen more often. -Phil Dawson...congrats to him tying the franchise record for field goals made! Truly an amazing accomplishment. -Our field goal blocking unit has gotta be the #1 in the league. 2 blocked in 2 games. With more to come I am sure. -Offensive line played great. Seneca Wallace didn't need to move out of the pocket much at all. -Speaking of, Wallace played phenomenal and anyone can see that he is the better choice than Delhomme, whether injured or healthy. -Even if Peyton Hillis has an off day on the ground, he makes up for it. Amazing catch for a TD. And hurdling a player at the beginning of the game...wow. It was nuts. -Eric Wright looks like he is back to his old self all over the field and not giving up much. Glad to see him where he belongs. -The QB's did a much better job of spreading the ball around to all the receivers. NEGATIVES: -Jerome Harrison looks like a 12 year veteran who lost all of his mojo. No burst or anything that we saw last year. I am glad we have depth at RB. -The defensive line is SLOW. Yes, we got more pressure today but we could have sacked the QB alot more than we did and that across the field pass by Matt Ryan just as he was about to get sacked is unacceptable. -Joe Haden looked like Abe Elam today. In other words, he couldn't tackle. But it was an off day. -Sheldon Brown getting beat for the second week in a row. This guy is our best corner and I have nothing but mad respect for him cuz he is a gamer. Its just sad to see him making small mistakes that lead to big plays. -The big one: JAKE DELHOMME is terrible. This guy is so bad. It's not the same kind of bad that Quinn or Anderson was, mainly because we knew we couldn't contend with either of those QBs. But now we have a team we can actually win games with. If Seneca would have stayed in, we would have won. I am almost certain of that. Delhomme is terrible. But he is Mangini's bitch so we will see him out there Sunday. Don't give Delhomme the "he was limited excuse". Im not buying it. -Mangini, you are an idiot. Seneca Wallace came out in the second half expecting to come back in. He was on the sideline running with his helmet on and looked 100%. After the game, Wallace told the press he was frustrated that Mangini didn't put him back in because he was ready to go. He said they wanted to do an MRI before doing anything else with him. Way to go coach. If I missed anything, I will add it later. Same shit, different day. I know everyone in this great city is sick of this. When will we win? I am starting to think never. I just hope we rape Ben next week. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
