Hi, all! Last night's game was a good one. The first-string offense looked extremely sharp, scoring 21 points in the first quarter and another TD in the second quarter to be up 28-0 by halftime. Tommy looked in total command out there. :)
The amazing part of the night? THE DEFENSE! WE HAVE A LEGITIMATE PASS RUSH THIS YEAR!
For years we fans have bemoaned the lack of a pass rush, and we finally got one! Looks like the D will be creating havoc in the backfield and for the QBs instead of letting them stand back there all day eating a sandwich and picking us apart. Looks like Pro Bowler Jerod Mayo is in position to do some SERIOUS damage, and two of our best D-linemen haven't even suited up yet!
Ochocinco got clocked on a play (the defender was flagged for helmet-to-helmet) and Danny Woodhead got his bell rung so badly he was staggering and his teammates put him on the ground to be examined by the trainers. No flag on that play, though it was helmet-to-helmet, too, a big no-no these days.
It's only preseason, so you have to take things with a grain of salt, but better to be sharp than stumbling like the Bucs last night! :)
