Looks like the WR are covered in some cases. In other's he holding on to the ball and trying to wait for the play to develop when the pocket starts collapsing early (Howard was awful this game, hopefully he learns and gets better, rather than just continuing to slide). Honestly he made us think the OL played well but Howard was getting beat like a drum for a bunch of the game. Saw one bad throw so far to Holmes on a crossing route where Sanchez jumped up and threw the ball. Just really bad mechanics on that one. Kerley missed a nice throw and Hill dropped a handful of nice passes as well. Cumberland is extremely inconsistent, Reuland is the better choice IMHO. Greene... yea nothing new there he sucks and NEVER should be in on a third and long. Just bounces up and down in the same spot close to the defender. Doesn't try to get open.
Full disclosure: I didn't watch all four quarters, didn't have time so just got most of the first half and a little bit of the 2nd.
