5 up, 5 down - Week 8 bucs

Recommended Posts

5 up

  1. Ravens lost
  2. Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd had a nice bounce back games
  3. Andy continues to play well
  4. We finally got to see Christian Westerman in action (silver linings?)
  5. The Bengals won?

5 down

  1. Steelers won
  2. Everyone keeps getting hurt - AJ, Lawson, Boling, Kirkpatrick in this game alone
  3. The defense still looks and plays like a wet paper bag
  4. The offense can't stay on the pedal for all 4 quarters
  5. The Bengals were +4 on turnovers, and barely won the game...ouch

Some positives:

  • I saw Westerman at least twice, pancaking a defender at the end of a play.  Dude is a straight up mauler, and probably a very difficult time for DL to play against for 4 quarters.
  • Linebackers (at least Preston Brown and Jordan Evans), I thought had good/decent games.  OJ Howard is a matchup nightmare but they played Ok I thought.
  • Defensive scheme finally allowing WJIII and Dre to shadow.  Surprisingly Dre played well against Mike Evans.
  • Darius Phillips showed some flashes.  He'll still give up too many plays, but I'm encouraged for the future.

Yeah i think he shows some promise as a slot corner.

Can't wait to see him make the all-pro team 5x with another team.
