Okay so far the run blocking has been terrible and Bernard Pierce got shaken up as a result of it.

Terrence Brooks making some plays makes me very happy, though, even this pick was negated by Dominique Franks.

Yup, and the question marks on offense? Offensive line and running game. Shocking.

But we need CB depth so bad right now.

Our pass rush looks pretty solid, Jernigan is athletic as heck and Mosley is a freaking stud so far.

How hasn't Steve Smith been more talked about when it comes to huge FA pickups this season? He's everything advertised and more!

He's still got "it". His speed is good enough to separate deep as well as in the slot. I honestly didn't think he'd have this much athleticism still left in the tank.

And I like how we can ship in Marlon Brown on occasions to give Smith some rest.

Yeah I think he's going to have a great season for us and I think he really took advantage of this offseason to really get a second start on his career. He's going to be huge for us.

One thing that still annoys me is that I still wish our edge rushers used more actual pass rush "moves" instead of just bull rushing to get by people. Rarely ever do I see Suggs or Dumervil use anything but bull rush and I know Dumervil can spin and swim and rip, I just never see it.

It was pretty solid. Lots of quick passes to Torrey and and a couple of screens. Overall it was just a solid drive down the field capped by a great TD reception.

Watched the first quarter so far, and man, the run blocking is not good. Pass blocking leaves a little to be desired as well. Some stuff to work on for the regular season, there.

Steve Smith looks great, though. And Juszczyk looks like he'll be a great option for Joe this season. Looks like Joe has trust in both of them.

ETA: Also, Brandon Merriweather is still scum and should not be playing football at this level.

Matt Elam? Beast. C.J. Mosley? Dirty. Arthur Brown? Disgusting. Timmy Jernigan? Filthy. Brandon Williams? Nasty. Terrence Brooks? Sick.

I hope all of these guys are starting sooner rather than later. Sorry Chris Canty, Daryl Smith, and Darian Stewart.

Whoaaaaaa hold on, now. Daryl Smith is still better than any of those ILB's you mentioned as of now. In a couple of years though when Smith has either retired or gotten a big deal elsewhere our ILB tandem is going to be one of the youngest and best in the league. I'm excited for it.
