Defense looked great, EJ is back! Lotsa pressure on the QBs tonight.
I think we had great LB play tonight as well. Jasper Brinkly only had 2 tackles, but he was everywhere tonight, he impressed me.
I thought Albert Young looked good tonight running the ball.
I also thought Young looked good, but Ian Johnson looked just as impressive. That should be a great battle for the #3 RB spot.
Onto some of the other battles:
Sage definitely won this one night. We'll see how T-Jack looks with the ones next game.
Nickel CB still looks to be up in the air to me. Asher Allen looked good from what I saw(I did miss the end of the 3rd and first 5 minutes of the 4th). McCauley made a nice play breaking a pass up, and I didn't see Sapp get burnt.
Brinkley looked very good as did all of the LBs, and I think he pulled ahead of Herron.
Loadholt didn't look great as he got beat upfield by a Colts DE(not sure who) a couple times, and had a false start penalty. Cook was brutal though. Several penalties, and he got beat on a couple plays as well.
The starting D looked great. Manning never had a chance. The rest of the D looked good, except when we got torched by Brown on a couple long runs.
All in all a good night, but there are definitely some things that still need to be worked on.
