King Sam: What can you say? The dude is a natural talent, leader, and player. That fake tuck and run, then dink to Fells was so sweet and quick the announcers missed the beautiful nuances of it. The team believes in him. The fans believe in him. The NFL coaching fraternity of analysts already believe in him. Besides a couple grounders to get the yips out, Sam was putting the rock everywhere the DBs weren't. That quick strike to Baby Danny looked like some shit out of arena football where the WR has a running lead. How freaking exciting is it to have King Sam the Ram?!
Animal Jr: Quintessential "I'm here muthaf*&^%#s!" game. I can remember only a handful of plays where he wasn't the last dude getting up off of a tackled player. A beast. A beautiful, violent beast. The Young General on D.
The DB's : They made some nice plays for takeaways and the coverage was pretty damn good. A very young group that's only going to get better. Mr. Bartell, you are playing your ass off this year. Just make that ball stick to those gloves, playa. Your man to man coverage has been sick. Please stay healthy. You are very good healthy.
The Coaching Staff: Ladies and Gentlemen, adjustments, an attacking attitude, and very little boneheaded bullcrap! The guys on the field really do listen to you!
Special teams: Figure it out now. No more excuses. Cut the bullshit. We'd be 3-0 if you guys were simply average.
Brandon Gibson: Nice showing after the PD article of you and Mardy wanting more playing time. Well, I guess the coaches were seeing the first few weeks in practice what we saw today. Drops. Lots of them. You better thank God King Sam is your QB. After your first 4 drops, any veteran QB would have had your ass crying in the huddle. Saw the tweet, make it right next week.
Jason Smith: The number 2 overall doesn't need to be going number two over all of our drives. C'mon, Jason... it's big boy time now. You look a little timid out there sometimes. I don't get it. We believe in you. Believe in yourself now and go apeshit on those DLs.
The Officiating Crew: That wasn't a hold on Fendi? Really? How come my wife who hates football and knows nothing about it walked by on that play and asked me, without any care or prompting, "Do the guys that tackle get to hold onto the guys that catch so they can't catch the ball before its thrown to tackle them ?" That about says it all. And, oh, by the way, Cooley fumbled the damn ball.
Give me your Game Balls and Lame Balls and let's just swim around in this like pigs in slop for the next 6 days.
