- Based on the stats, it looked like the defense was very disruptive. Again, I am not trying to put too much into the stats, but it looks like Darryl Gamble is really making hay in the battle for the outside linebacker position opposite Justin Houston. While both Washington and Dent seem to be doing well, the best thing to take away from this is about building depth at the position.
- I wonder if having Clint Boling and Chris Davis as the long regular starters from the offensive line working with the first team made that big of a difference. I hope we don't have to find out in the season.
- It looks like Logan Gray and Aaron Murray are getting comfortable with playing catch. That also means Gray was working with the 1 offense, too. I did note that AJ didn't have any catches the coaches talked about. Seth Emerson mentioned that he did have a couple, but that the coaches wanted to give some other guys work. The thing I note about this is that Gray might well be the number three guy at receiver based on him being much more involved.
- Good to see Branden Smith back and involved.
- The most interesting stat to me was the disparity in the yardage between Ealey (7 for 70 yards, one long run) and King (7 for 18 yards).
- No word on who fumbled, but it is good to not hear the coaches talking about having to focus on ball protection.
- Also, good to see Kiante Tripp get some time in and a couple of tackles. I wonder if he got his half sack at NG and against the one offense.
I also wonder about the penalties, especially the off sides (thanks to watcher16 for making me obsess about penalties).
