    MBSGWb dehr Schwartzie started the game in the same deep cover 2 as he did against the dolts, but in the second half he mixed it up way more and blitzed occassionally, not getting sacks but forcing Brunell to move out of the pocket.

    Before I get all giddy the D did allow 125 rushing yards in a close game, but I will give credit for a win and I for one am reopen to the possibility that Schwartz should not have to wear protective headgear 23 hours a day. Keep it up red hat boy, but now do it without getting gouged against the run.

    Somebody needs to formally introduce Ben "Ginger Queen" Troupe to Norm "dump it" Chow. Troupe only has 7 catches in 2006, yeah he had a real bad play against the J-E-T-S, but he is still on the team toss him a bone or something.

    Has anyone informed Project Blue Book about the invasion of the Pod People. No other rational explanation for Lamont "Big Dummy" Thompsons making play after play at the end of the game. Pod Person for sure.

    Then there is Reynaldo Hill. Just how awful is Woolfolk that he cannot get some PT with Hill as competition.:suspect:

    Overall the D played with attitude and did not get rattled when the skins tied the game. I am looking forward to seeing some of that at home against the cows in two weeks. The O put up 5 scoring drives and a season high 23 points. Make 4 of those drives TDs and this team is gonna win a bunch of games.

    The D did a good job flushing Brunell to his right. With him being a leftie, he is really weak, and obviously inaccurate going to his right.

    Even though they did not get the sack, they put enough pressure on him to make him uncomfortable to say the least in many of his throws.

    Well, Chow isn't the one not throwing the football to Troupe, however he has dropped a couple of good passes by Vince already, so there might not be a whole lot of trust yet.

    As for Schwartz I think he did an approvable job by blitzing and mixing up coverages. I would still like to see more of different formations and moving around presnap, but it was a big step in the right direction and it allowed players like Hope to go out and do what they do best, making plays. I absolutely loved how Hope snuffed out the screen to Portis on a Hill blitz.

    other than those reverses by Moss, the D shut down the run game. I think portis was held to about 58 yards if i remember right, pretty good if you ask me, especially with the adjustments in the 2nd half...
