Pleasant surprises through two weeks...

Recommended Posts

What are some things even the optimistic fans among us are pleasantly surprised by after two weeks?  I'll throw out a few:

 

-- Daboll's scheming and playcalling

-- Bojo!

-- Lee Smith (and overall TE play)

-- Shaq Lawson (and overall DL depth)

-- Feliciano

-- productivity of John Brown (did anyone expect 14 catches in two weeks?)

 

Discuss.

I know productivity is not always measured with your # being called by the commentators or showing up on the stat line but I have not heard #55 as much as I expected especialy with the new additions this year.

He’s got 1.5 sacks and 5 tackles.

The interior o line is much better than I thought it would be. They are beasts. I didn’t like it at the time, but I now understand how Teller came to be traded.

I think you misunderstood the thread topic.

john brown and moving those chains.  it finally seems like we can get first downs even if we're 3rd and long instead of doing a draw play or just throwing a screen and giving up.

Siran Neal was EVERYWHERE on Sunday 

 

I really like how they used him and Marlowe on Engram. Proved very effective. Also gave them someone bigger in the slot to slow down Barkley.

Bojo and Neal for me. Had lukewarm expectations at best going into the season, but they have both played very well so far.

John Brown was my biggest surprise. I actually took him in a lot of my fantasy leagues for the upside.

 

But what impresses me the most.. is that there isnt a route he cannot run. Hes effective everywhere on the field and thats fantastic.

Wide receivers who actually get separation, but also realize that we have a QB who can scramble and know to keep playing, find an open spot and show him their number or work back towards him.

14 catches for anyone who is just starting with a qb is impressive. I am also impressed with Josh taking what the D is giving, at some point they will have to start pushing the DBs tighter and that should allow more deep shots.

Josh's play - I thought he would be better than last year but I have been very encouraged.

Siran Neal on Sunday - thought he was a weak link when he came in against the Jets but very good against the Giants

BoJo

Trent Murhpy not being hurt yet

Think I underestimated John Brown to this point.

 

Guy gets open and has caught everything thrown his way... including some tough one. Like what I see to this point.

Darryl Johnson jr.

given his pedigree, I thought they would bring him along very slowly. It looks like the game isn't too big for him, and I expect him to become a force as the season proceeds.
