It was definitely tough to find some positives out of the game against the Bears, but there are a few things that I found that gave me a glimmer of hope. Here are the things that caught the eye:

Corey Liuget is a beast and when he is on the field he is a difference maker. He will find a way to get back on the field. He is that type of player. When we suit up for week 1, I expect to see that dominant force back on the line.

Dwight Freeney is able to get pressure on the quarterback still. He is in the backfield constantly. Hewill be able to get the quarterback to have happy feet. He will draw the attention from the opposing offensive line, which will allow the other guys to make plays. He still has that big time ability to provide a pass rush.

Donald Butler is about to have an epic year. Time to get paid.

The running game is in decent hands. Before we started the preseason, I thought it would be smart to bring in another back onto the roster. Now I think the combination of Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead, Ronnie Brown and Fozzy Whittaker can handle the load.

    I think our pass rush could be much better than most expect. Freeney looks a lot fresher than I though he would be. Also, LG89 has been very impressive. Lots of improvement since last season. He could be very effective in the slot and create huge mismatches in the red zone. His future looks bright.

    everything minus Ronnie Brown.

    And am I the only one who is obsessed with Geather? That guy is a FUCKING ANIMAL!

    I think Rinehart is turning out to be a good pick up. I notice that we don’t hear anything bad about him after plays. He is keeping his head down, playing well, and not making mistakes. I like that!

      most definitely… good pickup

    Mike Willie stepped it up when we needed him. Green showed we could have three awesome TE. Mathews stayed healthy, held onto the ball. I understand why Special Teams was so bad, McCoy is playing players that will probably not make the roster. he’s sticking true to his word, “…this is a competition..”everyone” will have a chance to make the roster…” you can’t do that from the sidelines.

      Ya I started to pay more attention to that after how terrible our special teams looked. I was getting a little worried until I realized it was mostly newbies

  • Bill Nichols

    The core is solid, agree with everything you have said, and especially love the fact that we are not screaming for a run game. That freaking part of this system is looking tight, and deep, and look the “F” out! That alone has to open up the passing game some…….. Rivers needs to keep his eyes down field, and get the foot work in synch with the blocking, trust his newbie receivers and let it fly. Let’s go bolts.

  • Dave

    You need to mention that Larry English is also playing well and getting pressure.

      he is … good call. tourek williams is doing the same. English and Freeney look like the quickest guys out of their stance on every defensive play
