Re: The NFL Player That You Were Most Impressed With After Week 1

Im going to go with Brett Farve. Only being with the team three weeks, he learned the offense and didnt make any critical mistakes. Its nice to see a QB pick up a new offense fairly quickly.

Turner was really impressive.

Felix Jones looked real good too.

The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team. They did a pretty good New England Patriots impression on Sunday. They went to their backup QB early in the 2nd half... Nice to see a team win big with class.

All the guys mentioned looked good. It is my hope that when Kelly takes the field we can say the same about him. The difference is, none of these TEAMS ( That I know of ) are learning a new offensive system. If the rest of the team does not play well, blocking etc., it makes it even harder on the rookies to look good.

Well he also got incredibly lucky on that 4th and 13 prayer he tossed up for grabs. He still has a long way to go in that offense, but he's experienced enough where he can wing it.

Did you hear him after the game? He said that at one point he called the same play two times in a row, he basically said "alright guys same play". Hilarious.

Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco have to get this award. For other positions it is a bit easier to get the hang of the speed of the NFL because the focus is never soely on the shoulders of an outside linebacker or a wide out. Middle linebacker and quarterback are the two most demanding positions for a rookie and Ryan and Flocco both stepped in on terrible football teams and made a positive impact.

Re: The NFL Player That You Were Most Impressed With After Week 1

Delhomme & McNabb (unfortunately for us) appear to be back.
Turner is a monster.

Units that impressed:
Chicago's OL, who was much maligned in the off-season HANDLED Indy.
Steelers OL

Those that didn't impress:
Al Saunders offense in STL (LOL)

Re: The NFL Player That You Were Most Impressed With After Week 1

I'm giving it to Michael "The Burner" Turner and Matt Ryan. I've been waiting all these years to see what Turner could do if he was a featured back in an offense and needless to say he didn't disappoint me in his starting debut. Matt Ryan also did a lot better than most rookie quarterbacks I've seen over the years.

Re: The NFL Player That You Were Most Impressed With After Week 1

I'd give the credit to Dallas's OL before Romo. He had all freaking day to throw back there. It was ridiculous.

How about fast Willie Parker written for dead before the season? That boy is back.

Jake Delhomme to Dante Rosario. To crush ole Norvells home season openers game winning plans.

Great pass and catch with zero on the clock!
