    Studs
    catanzero - for all the slack we caught choosing him over martin he was perfect on the day drilling FGS os 48 and 52 yards with room to spare. also was great on kickoffs

    Davis - getting him in return for pryor seems like a steal. he didn't make mistakes and led the team with 14 tackles (8 solo) and had .5 sacks

    Lee - while still struggling in coverage and made some mistakes he shouldn't have he did get 10 tackles (7 solo) and a sack

    Jamaal Adams - his stat line isn't impressive but he felt like he was everywhere and made some good plays in on pass defense.

    Leonard williams - practically no stats but he clogged up the d-line and was disruptive all night

    Kearse - despite barely being on the team just coming over in a trade, led us with 7 catches and 59 yards. sadly our number 1 WR but could break 1k yards on the season

    TEs - finally look improved. McCown loves his TEs (remember barnidge) tomlinson looked good before getting hurt and Tye looked good as his replacement. Also ASJ is coming back after next week.

    Lac - 43.7 average punt and long of 58 yards. was pretty consistent and punted well

    Burris - looked like a solid corner out there and had a nice INT in the end zone. sadly his own player got thrown into him stopping it from being a 100 yard pick 6

    Ealy - was a disruptive force out there with a high motor. Great find on the waiver wire

    Duds
    O-line - failed to open holes in the run game and offered poor protection in the pass game. somehting we need to fix in the offseason

    McCown - not sure why he's starting, Even if he gives us the "best chance to win" it's a pretty slim one. he looked bad. Not that he had much help and hard to blame him for the 2 desperation INTs (still don't agree with the anderson call on the INT either) but he did nothing to move the offense and looked scared to throw downfield

    Forte - why he isn't spelling powell is beyond me. they both have the same skill set but powell is just the better player. he runs hard breaks tackles and can catch. Powell should be the lead back. Forte looks old and slow out there

    Anderson - didn't really have an impact. hard to knock him though but i expected more then 22 yards

    Raymond - 2 fumbles as our returner. sure he didn't lose any but still.

    Skrine - just looked bad out there. at this point i'd rather see burris starting opposite claiborne

    Wilkerson - did pretty much nothing

    bowles - punting when we were down by 2 scores with 4 mins left? terrible decision

    Davis and Lee were complete duds..

    they were horrible against the run, and horrible in coverage.
    Lee especially, who was even briefly bench during the game for Stanford.

    I thought Maye was a stud.

    And Powell on the rare occasion he got to touch a football.

    No argument here. Outside the O-line, the ILBs were the hardest thing to watch. Even Mo was better, and he just stood there...

    Josh Martin and Ealy both were studs.

    Shell at least proved he belonged as a starter, which is encouraging.

    are you just going by the stats where we got gashed? alot was the lack of outside contain. once was lee's fault but mostly it feel on the DEs and OLBs

    If you say so. I felt Adams looked lost at first, but Maye was doing alright. By the end, Adams was on fire, and Maye was still playing very well.

    The ILBs on the other hand, were doing what our ILBs seem to always do these last few years, tackling everyone from behind...

    Sadly davis and lee are the same type. we don't have that big LBer to take on blocks from lineman. we really aren't suited for the 3-4 as well as bowles thinks. I think we did good on the inside. it was the outside that suffered.

    i seen them in the backfield quite a few times. it's not just stats. same with williams. he was beasting all day at the line but his stat line was nothing. the bills rush attack with taylor and mccoy is no joke. lets see how they fare against a more traditional attack in oakland. I'm sure carr will shred us, but i think we will hold marshawn in check. he did look dam good though sunday breaking tackles and running with a purpose

    I am not a McCown apologist. He is what he is, but I don't think he looked bad. He didn't look good either, but he can't throw and catch passes.

    B2Q, Davis should be cut, Lee has some potential, I guess, although I don't see it.....week after week it will be the same shit, throw to whoever these guys cover and watch them chase, they are really fast....
