    Re: What Went Right? What Went Wrong: Skins Game.

    Let's start with the positives - and there's a lot of them.

    COACH: Very impressed with Brad Childress. Took a stand on discipline by standing down his Free Safety and backing up his words with actions - guess they'll be no love boats this season. Also clearly had a word with the team at the break about stupid penalties as we didn't give half so many away in the second half.

    BRAD JOHNSON: This guy was AWESOME. Barely put a foot wrong. i don't care if he's 37 or 97, he's welcome to start for us if he can play like that.

    CHESTER TAYLOR: Previously, I didn't understand why we aquired him. I do now.

    MARCUS ROBINSON: Thank goodness somebody can catch...

    DEFENSE: Not a great performance by any means, but certainly a good one.

    As for what could be better - not asking Ryan Longwell to try a 54 yard field goal would be a start and Troy Williamson learning to CATCH the football!

    That's a good post.
    I agree with everything.
    Taylor was a good acquisition and like I stated previously would have had over 100 yards rushing if it weren't for a couple of penaltiy calls.
    He's awesome out of the backfield.

    Re: What Went Right? What Went Wrong: Skins Game.

    Right: they win, and defense looked good
    Wrong: Their holding game ( i was scared on longwells 33 yard kick for that reason)
    Questionable: Troy Williamson dropping so many passes... hope we get that cleared up

    Re: What Went Right? What Went Wrong: Skins Game.

    Right:Chester getting the tough yards bj converting all the third downs
    Wrong:way to many penalties ( although there were significantly less in the second half) TWill dropping what would have been a 50something yard touchdown plau a couple others that would have been a first down
