First Half Quick Hits

  • Byron Leftwich has looked pretty decent so far.  Roddy White and Laurent Robinson are not giving him much help
  • Our offense can move the ball seemingly at will against their defense.  Besides the Michael Pittman drop on 3rd down, and the fumble by Pittman, our offense has looked very effficient.
  • Atlanta’s LB’s and secondary are biting hard on pump fakes and play action, no discipline from Mike Zimmer’s squad.
  • I love that we still get to play this team another time after today’s game!!!
  • John Abraham has been abusing Jeremy Trueblood and Donald Penn the whole first half.  He looks really good, and logged his 7th sack of the year in the first half.
  • Deangelo Hall gambles too much on defense.  Jeff Garcia and Joey Galloway burned him on the pump fake. 
  • Neither team has ran the ball very effectively as of yet. 
  • Ronde Barber has no INT’s all year, this was a stat that was told by the Fox broadcasters that I was just not aware of.
  • Cato June has been trying to run through everyone he tackles, he looks very good today. 
  • Notice all the empty seats in the Georgia Dome, the fans are abandoning the Falcons. 
  • What in the world was Brian Kelly doing after the fumble recovery, that is something that happens in college, and for amateurs, very Bush…..just a horrible play.
  • The challenge of the aforementioned play, was a terrible call by the refs.  It was obvious that Roddy White tripped Cato June, and he should have been down by contact. 
  • No injuries in the first half for the Bucs.
  • We’ve layed 4 hard licks on Leftwich to this point.  One caused a fumble, the other caused an incompletion, the other both resulted in sacks.  Greg White has had two those 4 sacks. 
  • It’s funny how we use Ike Hilliard to return punts when the punt returner wil be backed up to the end zone, and Phillip Buchanon for punts where we have a chance to make a move.
