I'm surprised more people aren't mentioning Keiland Williams. Williams had a better average and 2 TD's.

Can you elaborate? Or will we find out on Monday when Brian Westbrook announces his new team?

Grossman, because he looked totally different than the Grossman of old in that one game. If he can do that against a good/great team every time then you've got something special. I would really like to see him do it against a class act though. Cause he's worse than Cutler from an ITN standpoint, or at least, up to this point in his career.

Re: Players that impressed you the most after the 1st preseason game?

Can't believe some of the names mentioned.
Some people are very easily impressed.

Have to agree with Trent Williams though.
Was quite funny to see the guards sliding over to help out only to realise they weren't needed.

Re: Players that impressed you the most after the 1st preseason game?

I was impressed with the entire team as a whole. There were a couple of "especially's" but everyone that played, to some extent made their presence felt. I know it's pre-season and it was the Bills, but it was a good start and a confidence builder.

Re: Players that impressed you the most after the 1st preseason game?

The excellent from last night:

1. McNabb and Grossman looked solid. Grossman was especially good, which to me was not that surprising. But I think its safe to say the talent at QB...McNabb and Grossman much better than Campbell and that other guy
2. Its nice to see an O-Line pass protect. Our first team run blocking seem to ok, pass protection was excellent. Heyer played really well along with Silverback.
3. Thank god ARE is not kick returning anymore. I think we are finally gonna have a threat returning kicks again.
4. Devin Thomas, after a miserable start...great route, perfect catch...dude needs to play with more confidence sometimes.
5. AH needs to go ahead and be put on the 1st team D along side Kemo at Gholston DE spot. Let this guy just go after the QB.

What we need work on:

1. 1st team D looked confused several times. I understand its growing pain, but we should have been controling that line of scrimage against a much weaker Bills Oline.
2. Portis looked ok, but it seemed to me Torrain just ran better. I think the 1st team Oline could have run blocked better as well.

Not much else, great 1st game...made a really gud impression...

The final score aside, I was really impressed with the team's focus and cohesion this early on. During the Zorn and Gibbs era, it would have taken at least third or fourth pre-season game for the offense to put together that first drive. The execution and, again, focus was evident.
Bingo. I was thinking the same thing.

For the first time in years, the offense made it look easy.

Yep -- it was talked about during the postgame show on ESPN980 last night. Run defense was clearly an issue. The Bills had 146 yards on 18 carries for just over 8 ypc.

There were some really bad angles and over-pursuit on running plays. I'm confident that will be resolved over the next three weeks.

The McNabb-Cooley connection is going to be huge this season. They've already got a serious thing going.
