The defense as a whole was really good IMO. CJ was disruptive and the line got hands to bat passes down. I cannot remember seeing that many three and outs in a while.

One of my many highlights from preseason game #2 was seeing Mcclain and Edwards getting stops and moving the line. Mcclain was especially active and Edwards is looking like Buckner 2.0 as the vet that can read plays and be an extra coach on the field.

Keiser has solidified himself as a solid rotational guy if that was even in doubt..Viva la D-line!!

Any preseason "im not impressed by Rivera" this week?! Didnt think so.

I'm not sure if you heard yet. But it was only Miami. I'm sure the resident pessimists will be along shortly to enlighten you.

And? We've faced offenses last year that were worse than miami, and still walked all over us.

We showed improvement. We need to keep playing like this.

Even Fua got penetration!

They played well, hope to see more of the same against the NJ Jets and Steelers.

Edwards is going to be a difference maker.

Let's see... our O does average in a pre-season game and the homers are quick to remind you we used a vanilla offense. But our D looks great and they never seem to grasp the other team was using a vanilla O.

Wait until Game 1 before you start getting excited. The pre-season show next to nothing.

And, the point sailed right over your head. More a commentary on Huddle posters than the topic. I'll try and dumb it down more next time.

Type of offense has nothing to do with getting dominated at the LOS.

This. Winning trench battles right now is more important than diagnosing the opponent's schemes. We wanted toughness at the point of attack and we saw that last night against their first team. How could anyone not have been pleased with that effort? Plus, it was a reflection of Rivera's message.

THIS (above) is the commentary on the Huddle posting! :rolleyes:

I don't think you were trying to be funny, but I got a kick out of it (deadpan).

We were in a 3-4 with CJ at DE when he got that TFL on Bush.

The DTs did not really win any battles ast season except a few of the later games. I dont remember seeing this performance in preseason 2011.
