Everyone looked great.  There were a few miscommunications on the front five, but most was minimal.  Smith does tend to have trouble with speed rushers vs. bigger guys, but to be fair too, Super Mario is one of the better DEs nobody talks about.  As a whole, Marvel played very, very well.  Having a healthy back probably plays a big part in that.

Ben, Willie, Ward, Holmes, Miller, Mendenhall...all solid.

Defensively, great effort from the front seven.  I had said that the Harrison and my boy Woodley edge combo would go bananas this year and if yesterday was any sort of indication, they will threaten some team sack records.  Good to see TP back out there and flyin' around and that goes double for guys like A.Smith and especially R.Clark.  This squad is totally different when at full strength.

Solid performance.  IMO, I think the key now is to not get too high from it going into the Clowns game.

Well, we've basically dominated those bastards.  For all the great off-season moves the Browns did, that D looked like it couldn't stop a three-legged dog from pissing.  And Air Anderson was grounded.  I know they have some WRs out, but so did McNabb, and he still threw for about a yard per pound of Casey Hampton's weight.

I hate to be over-confident, but this so-called race between the Browns and Steelers for the AFCN crown doesn't look too difficult.  If we play our game Sunday, we should win by an even bigger margin than we did over the Texans.

Browns, not good.  Ravens, maybe worse.  Bengals, oh the humanity.

Santonio will get his.  

Washington made a hell of an effort on that ball, BTW.  That was a Tyree-like attempt, but the coverage was good.  If Gary Coleman had put it on a spot where the DB couldn't reach it...
Man, I said the SAME DAMN THING to the guys!!

I was waiting for him to break out with "What you talkin' 'bout Willis?"

But seriously, when does Charlie come back.  Cause I'm not a big fan of GC just yet....
And I'm hoping we get to sit Ben down in mid-3rd quarter for many games.
