Self-explanatory, I'm trying to get a feel for the goods and bads of all the teams so far.

3 positives:

1) The offensive tempo was amazing. We definitely did not play conservative football, and opened up the playbook for Matt. He controlled the team, and we ran lots of no huddle looks.

2) JULIO JONES!!! Julio is looking like he will be mentioned among the elite at the WR position by year's end.

3) Second half adjustments. Last year we could not adjust the gameplan to save our life. We came out second half, and defense played better, offense put the game out of reach.


HM: O-line is pass pro. I was pleasantly surprised by the pass protection our o-line gave Matt. He had a nice pocket most of the time.

3 negatives:

1) Pass rush. For the first half, the pass rush was almost non-existent. It was only when we blitzed that we could get pressure. When we rushed 4, our linemen weren't even getting close to the QB. Second half was better.

2) Secondary. This is partly due to a lack of pass rush, but our secondary made Cassel look like Tom Brady at some points of the game. Dunta is one of the most overpaid players in the game based on his performance over the past years, and it hurts that we lost Grimes.

3) Running game. The offensive line barely opened any holes for our backs. Michael Turner showcased his sluggish running style once again, and as a team we only had 84 yards running the ball. Quizz had some nice gains though.

Sums it up. If you could add a 4th thing it would be all the turnovers we forced.
