What impressed you
What did not

I have to go back and re watch the game but I did see most of the second half. Cooks looked good and Cadet finally got it going. I saw a couple hard hits on ST.

Re: Ok the good the bad and the ugly

Good: Griffin was poised and accurate. Ingram and Khiry were both great. Cooks showed his big-play potential. The O-line (especially run blocking). Playcalling was outstanding. Defensive line got big-time penetration from the front 4. Inside linebackers were decent. Humber, specifically, was all over the place. DB's were very good. I was really encouraged to see P-Rob challenging receivers up on the line and being aggressive. White made a few nice plays too. Coverage teams were mostly good. Morstead hit some monster punts.

Bad: Linebackers aren't any faster than last year. It's not a huge problem, we can scheme around it by bringing Vaccaro/Bush down in the box. But there were some run plays off tackle that were a little scary and Hawthorne got his butt handed to him in pass coverage twice. None of the 4-5-6 WR candidates really stood out in any way. None of the depth corners (Sweeting, Dixon, Brooks) looked very good and Baptiste showed a lack of ball skills.

Ugly: Graham missing that 33 yard XP, ugh. Brandon Coleman, ugh. Had 2 bad plays besides that god-awful drop. He might have played himself off the depth chart. Reddick was terrible! Reminds me of Jonathan Casillas, and not just because of his jersey number. No instincts whatever, it's like the Malcolm Jenkins version of a linebacker. Strozier was really starting to impress me until he stepped out of bounds, come on you have to know where you are on the field and that could've been a first down.

Incomplete: Flanders, who I thought looked good in his one carry. Dimke made his one FG but that was a chip shot. McCown barely played, but I think they already know what they've got with him.

Random observation: Khiry has long hair now, and with their jersey numbers being so similar there is absolutely no way to tell him and Cadet apart, unless the camera is really close on them.

Good: Griffin standing in there and delivering the ball to Cooks on that TD with a defender bearing down on him

First/Second team O-line all looked good IMO. Huge holes for the backs to run through.

Re: Ok the good the bad and the ugly

Our defensive line had some insane pressure tonight, especially the younger guys. Foster/Walker/Hicks all looked like studs.

Both Lelito and Goodwin looked good, but Rams didn't play Brockers or Langford. I thought this would be a better test for the OL.
