Well we'll be okay if we split. Week 1 has never really defined a team.

Yup, we made the Saints look bad in week 1 and they still finished 13-3. This was week 1 with no preseason. It’ll only get better from here.

You mean back in 2017? Haha

Zimmer/Patterson/Zimmer will have to adjust.  You can't play man and match quarters without pressure from your front four.

Can someone explain to me how Holton Hill was allowed to single cover Davante Adams all game with no adjustment after getting repeatedly burned?

That's one of the great mysteries of the world

LaFleur did a good job of helping ID man coverage, TE's and backs split out wide followed by Barr or Kendricks, and then motioning them back in. Turned a lot of plays in to first looks going Adams way.

Zimmer isn't a fan of playing rookies. I hope he gives them a shot as we progress through the season. You cant add 15 picks to your team and not really use them.

Because it’s becoming evident that teams have a blueprint on Zimmer’s defense, and it doesn’t look like he really knows how to adjust it.

On a positive note, Jefferson has already surpassed the lofty expectations set by Treadwell for a rookie wide receiver.

Also, they should sign a FA nose tackle.  Is there any cap room left to do that?

Was Elflein pretty brutal still?

He gave up the first sack I think to Z Smith?  He tried to block the outside rusher and O'neal at that point couldn't do anything?

It was a stunt, maybe a bluffed stunt. O’Neill set expecting Smith to go up field and opened up the inside. 
 

from my eye, it was on O’Neill.

This, combined with giving up 6 scores in 8 possessions is a bad sign for Zimmer’s defense. 

We saw the defense take a big step back from what we’ve grown accustomed to last year. And today’s game doesn’t give much hope.
