Quick Recap
 
For those who didn't have access to the game.

Overall the team looked good on both sides of the ball. Special teams played really well too. Both Frost and Suisham did good jobs.

Up until Cambell left the game with the knee injury, I thought he was sharp. My heart was in my mouth when Campbell hit the turf.

Five players that really impressed me:

[B]Rocky McIntosh: [/B]Kid was flying to the ball all night. Mostly in the backfield. He looks like a totally different guy from last year. You can really tell the lights are coming on for this guy.

[B]Jason Cambell:[/B] Thought he played well. Was very poised and most of his passes on the money. He didn't play long, but he looked good overall.

[B]LaRon Landry: [/B]Seems like they played him in the box quite a bit tonight. He forced a few run plays inside for losses and was in on some tackles. He moves to the ball with full force. The kid's a beast.

[B]Todd Collins:[/B] I was pleasantly suprised to see him step in and step up. I think Brunell could be number 3 on the depth chart before it's over.

[B]Gregg Williams: [/B]I know it's early, but it seems like he has these guys having fun again, and you can tell they buy into the system. I sense a good year on the defensive side.

[B]Other notables: [/B]Mike Pucillo held his own and looked comfortable. He nearly played the entire game. First half at guard, second half at center. Like I said, he looked comfortable out there.

Sean Taylor isn't trying to be a hero. I noticed he was barking signals, tuggin guys on the jersey and putting them in position. I saw #30 on more plays than #21. That's a good thing.

Chris Cooley was Chris Cooley. He looks like he's ready for the Dolphins.

The offensive line looked a lot better.

Campbell looked good. Two sustained drives of 10+ plays.

Collins knows his reads and played well. I don't think he could make the finals of punt, pass, and kick though. Very soft arm.

Running game was poor again, but it is the Steelers.

Our bottom tier recievers, Berman et al, are horrible. No wonder they're bringing in people off the street.

Defense looked good again. The LBers shined tonight.

If I were to make a criticism of the defense it would be that there was poor tackling at times.

Special teams was solid, although Mike Espy is no Mike Nelms.

Someone needs to tell Theesman that it's Dallas SaRTZ. The Dallas Stars are a hockey tem, I think.

Yeah, the guys weren't wrapping up tonight. Even London Fletcher had a guy run through him.

Much improved difference with the OL. I feel a lot better about them, and hopefully when Samuels is back for game one, we won't even have any concerns for the offensive line.

Glad that Campbell wasn't seriously hurt. I was holding my breathe when I saw him down holding his knee! It's funny, last week we won and I was uneasy about our team. This week, we lose but I am feeling much better about them.

Gibbs said Espy is done for the year. Ruptured achilles, maybe. But he's done.

Thanks, 12th.

Just watched the live presser on skins.com. Gibbs seem down (as you'd expect), but said that everyone thinks Campbell is just bruised--no word on how long. Said Marcus had xrays--no bone chips, etc--again it looks like a bruise. But he said he thinks Espy is done for the year. Very tough for the kid.

Said D ahead of O--very disappointed about run blocking. Singled out Landry and Rocky as playing well.

Then Campbell himself addressed the media--he limped in, said it was scary but everyone says it's a bruise, very glad it wasn't ACL or MCL, felt like they were in a good rhythm on the drive he was hurt on.

Scary!

Just saw a Campbell interview. I think they'll hold him out next week. Maybe they'll let Collins and Brunell duke it out!!

You know, you're right....I just wanted to give Brunell the benefit of the doubt. I think at the least, Palmer needs to be on the practice squad.

They're saying a couple of weeks for Marcus Washington...that's unofficial though.

Everyone seems to think Campbell's injury is not serious -- just a bruise -- but they haven't done an MRI yet, right? The way he went down with his knee in going in a direction it's not supposed to go, I thought our season was over before it started.

If comes out of this with no serious injury, then Campbell is truly He-Man.

Let's see Todd Collins get some more time with the starters.

This really sucks for him. He didnt look like he did last preseason thus far, but I was really pulling for him. Apperently he was one of the hardest workers on the team (From Ray Brown, not Gibbs).

I hope he'll be able to make it back next year.

MW is the one the watch but ultimately I am pretty comfortable with our depth at LB. MW is a playmeker but we're not playing a scrub if he is out.

I am concerned about the JC injury in that it will take prep time away from him. I highly doubt it is of any seriousness from an actual physical standpoint.

The Mason kid actually looks like he could play RB in this league. He isn't a stud but he seems to have good vision and he is always going forward. Plus he can catch the ball. The kind of player Denver could proably get 1000 yards out of I bet.

Our special teams made very happy. Lots of great efforts. Of course most were by guys who know they have to make the team on STs.

It looked bad and I still think it was a cheap shot, but I don't believe there is any reason to call for the sky to drop.
