Some positives

While certainly few and far between, there have been some positives and right now, I choose to hold on to that. So here it goes, I'm sure I'm missing some so feel free to chime in:

Coby Fleener. Has he dropped a pass yet?
Turnovers. While we haven't caused them, at least we aren't making any
O-line play from week one to week two. Vastly improved
AJ Klein. I have loved watching him play thus far
TL Lewis. Not seen much but what I see is good

Re: Some positives

Kamara, Lattimore, & Williams look pretty good considering they've played only 2 NFL games.
Special Teams have improved in kick coverage & kick returns & we haven't gotten a kick blocked yet.
We're relatively healthy so far.

Re: Some positives

Our running game hasn't been bad. It's just been average. If we were converting 3rd downs and red zone opportunities our running game would actually be viewed as steady and productive.

The run defense between the tackles has been okay too. Gillislee just has good vision and hit small holes nicely yesterday, he looks very underrated to be honest.

LATTIMORE, 89.0 OVERALL GRADE. To put that into perspective, our defense fielded over 410 passing yards, however Latt only accounted for 28 total yards & had 2 PBU's. I'd agree, that is as close to "shut down" as you are going to get at this level.

Re: Some positives

I can go fishing on Sundays. No watching kneeling at the anthem jack asses and at the end of the day I might have some fish to eat.

I heard that the yardage given up these first 2 games breaks the franchise historical record. New areas that the defense is exploring. On the bright side, it can only go up from here--I Hope.
