Lelito was ok. I saw some positive things from PEAT however Evans is lacking something. Not sure if it's upper body strength, focus or what but he didn't look all that good.

But that UNGER dude... BEAST.

Joe Flacco and the 1's pretty much effortlessly pushed our D from one end of the field to the other, like rag dolls. They were pretty much able to score at will while the 1's were in there. Reminded me of 2012 where every time the Saints kicked off or punted to the other team, we'd look at the scoreboard and mentally start adding another 7 to the total. Looked like a classic "Bend but don't break" defense, of the kind that just keeps on bending and bending until the other team is in the end zone.

Oh well, we'll see what the regular season brings.

Unger played well, his block on Brandin Cooks' screen TD was pretty sweet.

Sad to say, but Jahri is becoming a terrible player, people just brush him aside go get into the backfield now.

Yeah, sad to say but Evans may be done. Disappointing because OG's can usually play into their late 30's.

The ease at which the Ravens pushed the ball on our first team D is very discouraging. Luckily, we have time to clean things up.

I agree with this. I would be comfortable with Griffin as the backup and if the Saints could get a 4th or 5th round pick for him it would be great.

I wonder if we would just be better off with Senio Kelemete at right guard at this point. I know he's been practicing at center but he was playing guard before. Jahri is in rapid decline. I'm hoping he's just still trying to bounce back from the hand injury.

Seno Kelemete sucked, he was blown in the back field a lot. No way will he be a improvement over Jahari. Fact, the entire 1st unit OL played well, Luke McClown just sucked.

I have finished watching the whole game and have re-watched parts of it. The play overall as a team isn't really good but there is a lot of good individual plays all throughout the game. I'll focus on the positives.

+ A Josh Hill sighting. The man looked solid.
+ We have an embarrassment of riches at the WR position. I could easily see us keeping 6 WRs this year. My guess would be Colston, Cooks, Toon, Coleman, Jones and Snead.
+ Kelemente has improved a lot since last year. He'd be a great 6-7th guy on the OL.
+ Bryce Harris did some nice things. The false start was boneheaded but the second penalty had more to do with the WR not setting the play up right. He will probably get cut thou since I don't see us carrying more than 7 OL.
+ Peat had a decent showing for this being his first NFL action. I liked the movement of his feet for such a big guy but I think he flips his hips a little too soon.
+ Griffin looked better than I had expected.
+ Grayson wasn't shabby at all, really nice athletic ability.
+ SJB looking better in coverage and really coming in and sticking the RB on a play.
+Eulls with some nice push up the middle.
+ Murphy with good returns and nice speed.
+ Edebali showing continued progression.

My biggest concern after the game was injuries and penalties. Non of the injuries seems to have been really serious from what we have learned so far.
16 penalties are way to much, the good thing is that a lot of them are mental errors that are quite easy to correct.
