Early holds that weren't called on Galette and others were a factor. Still, need to be much better in the pass rush.

Re: Grades from Atl NO game

why is when turn overs are stressed tackling seems to go out the window?

other than that the players stunk and so did the defensive game plan. especially in the second half.

Great points by everyone here. Flat, sloppy, no pass rush, receivers running free all over the field.... Wasn't this the main complaint in Dallas about Ryan's sophomore season?

Re: Grades from Atl NO game

I didn't understand all the off coverage played by both the corners and safeties. The D line just didn't show up at all and we were able to get pressure with the blitz a few times but our base D was horrible and when we went to a cover 2....OMG

I thought Cooks performed well. MI and PT also.

Re: Grades from Atl NO game

Since we are turning the page, there was some up side to the loss in Atlanta as well.

Offense
Goodwin/Grubs/Armstead is a force in run blocking, all grading out very well. a 2013 weakness that has become a strength.

Cooks - The bobble INT in the endzone was the only thing keeping him from going 8-8 100 yards and 2 TDs.

Drew - His accuracy was better than it was last year, he is putting the ball where receivers can catch it in stride as well. Didnt hear 1 concern over arm strength.

Graham - While 1 pass did seem to scare Graham he went 8/10 for 82 yards.

Colston - Mixed bag here, 3 dropped passes and a fumble but .... 5 catches for 110 yards, 65 YAC, is solid.

Defense
Obviously the sacks were not there but Junior had 1 Hit and 4 Hurries with 4 tackles to shine above the rest of the Defensive front.

Jordan has 3 Hurries and 1 batted pass


Special Teams was pretty dam solid for the first time in a few years as far as for coverage of kicks and punts.


I feel it is important to add that while we did lose, we are only 1 game behind the Conference leading Minnesota Vikings.
