The guys on Defense!
 
Gotta say that I was really impressed with our guys on Defense, in particular Malcolm Jenkins and Pat Robinson. The whole D only gave up 40 yards rushing today, awesome overall performance.
As far as MJ goes, even though he did get flagged he seemed to show good experience out there, when the bucs were on the goal line, he flew round and hit Cadillac so hard he nearly took his head off.
In robinsons case, what impressed me most was his Defense of the 2 point conversion - when a fade was thrown at him, he showed his leaping ability, most rookie corners struggle to locate the ball in those situations but he did a great job!!
This can be the start of a great run, we gotta capitilize on every opportuntity (Hartley!!)

I agree; the D played well today.

Wilkerson got our only sack of the day...

On that play where M.J. drew the flag twice, I think the second flag was provoked and Freeman should have got a flag too.

No point to Freeman getting in M.J.s face and causing contact and getting away with it.

Yer deffo Mitch, freeman got up pushing and shoving and getting in MJ's face, freeman should have been flagged!! There are a couple of plays that MJ can do better in coverage, but I like what I'm seeing from him.

Yea, that second flag amazed me seeing that MJ was surrounded by hostile players with Freeman getting all bent out of shape yet Jenkins gets called. Didn't understand that one.

The call against Jenkins was correct but I still want him to always make that hit. Better safe than sorry when in that position. that little b***h Freeman should've gotten flagged thou.

I agree with the first flag. Even though replay showed he meant nothing malicious. But they should have both gotten flagged on that second one. Freeman threw gas on the fire by carrying on like he did.
