I voted for the OL....I thought they were fantastic today.....Ben was only sacked twice and the running game was highly effective today...Great job by the big boys up front...

It's so hard because you can pick literally any one of them today and be right on the money.

Yes indeed he is....I loved the Woodley pick and wanted to play more last year....He is on the verge of stardom.....

Woodley is a beast like we all knew he would be. Glad to see him and Harrison working in tandem to get great pressure.
My vote was for Parker and the oline. Willie looked great coming off of injury, running hard and sniffing out the endzone!!!

Parker looked like he was back in 2006 form....I never doubted Parker just had concerns about him wearing down since he has had back to back 300 carry seasons...He erased any of those concerns today....He is back and made a statement today....

How can you not love this kid, he played well today against a pretty decent Texan front 7. Even Mendenhall got in the action and was able to get some carries and gain some confidence. Im excited for the season with those 2.

the great thing was harrison got 3 sacks but it was because of woodleys sheer dominance...which is a complete 180 from last year when he had haggans holding him back

I think Harrison and Woodley are on the verge of becoming Lloyd/Greene II.......Quiver and Quake Do The QB Shake..........

I voted Parker. It was between Parker and the O-line for me, because those they both surpriced me the most. I knew that Harrison and Woodley had a good chance of being dominating. I wasnt sold on Parker, but the dude just ran the hell out of everything!

The o-line was pretty amazing aswell. Parker and Ben just had it way to easy tbh. A few breakdowns in first quater, which we'll have to look into, but other than that it was great!

I was also very impressed by Woods on ST. The guy played pretty sweet aswell :)

Thats what im saying! It was no secret to anybody who watched Woodley last season knew he would be a huge upgrade playing opposite Silverback.

I knew Parker would come out running the ball hard and looking to prove he was back to 100%. There is a big difference between FWP when he has blocking and when he doesnt. Still with a lil more vision and patience he culd hof had 200 yds. But he is still improving, and against a pretty decent front he did a great job of taking what he could get and making the most out of every carry!

Woodley and Harrison are both great choices,but I went with Ward 6 catches for 76 yards and 2 TD's, plus critical blocks to make the offense click.

I was thinking the same thing too, all we need is for Wood to grow some long blonde hair you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from the Lloyd & Greene days :lol:

Oline without them playing like they did the offense does nothing.

Woodley :tt02: Woodley :tt02: WOODLEY!!!!! :tt02:
Nuff said except that you left off his forced fumble and fumble recovery! Harrison didn't force it. He had a hold of the player but Woodley came thru and hit it out of his hands..... Bringin' tha Wood baby!!!! :bunny:
