Considering this is THE FIRST time all season they have been allowed to tackle I am not worried.

But it's basic D. Wrap your arms around the guy and tackle him! Not splitting the atom.

I seriously expected to see at least THAT out of the new Spags D. Kind of a let down... Expectations too high? :/

Get over it. It was a scrimmage for crying out loud. For all we know they were told to take the gas off the pedal a little bit to avoid injury.

Oh Sweet Jesus. The offense with Drew looked incredible and the defensive pressure was much improved. Go to bed and read about it again in the morning. That was an awesome preseason game, especially the 1's against 1's.

I didn't think it was that bad. There are going to be miscues like Slo mentioned. It is pre season..it's whats suppose to happen. Now they will watch film of the game and correct some mistakes. Now if by the last pre season game we still having big time miscues, then start worrying.

Side note..you know who looked fricken amazing.... Mr. Balls Out Gonna Be A Sack Machine Wilson!!!
