Pass D looked good though. Vilma had a pick, and Jenkins *ALMOST* had another one coming across from center field. But on the Viks touchdown drive, we got burned on miss-matches on two long passes.

Grade: C, maybe a B-.
I think our D played great. Peterson broke off some good runs on us, but nothing major. Offensively I don't think we were that good. I know it is only the first game of the year and we were also playing against a fairly good Vikings D , but we had too many dropped balls that were very catchable. I would go with a B- grade maybe a B.

Secondary was solid.

LB's were 50/50 - as was the d line.

I thought the O line was solid. Bress was crisp. RB's played well.

WR's were 50/50.

Biggest area of concern for me is our ability to control the clock

First game. I'll take the win vs a huge opponent on a huge stage.

Media will make a big deal of this... but our run game will improve.

We held AP from hitting any long runs but his average was still way to high. He's backup did get stuffed all the time thou. Jenkins laid the big hit and made som nice tackles, i think he'll turn out allright.

Our bend-don't-break D was great tonight. B+, A- Just look at the stats.

Yes, we gave up a lot of second effort yards to AP, but he is the best back in the league (just ask him).
We gave up only two scoring drives to a pretty good offense.

I am in the majority that my biggest concern is LB- other than Vilma, they looked slow and slower. Thank God we put moved Harper to the TEe in the 2nd

That was a catch Moore had that was knocked out. We should've challenged.
