    I recently purchased the NFL rewind package to take a look at the Coaches Film and to review the games from this year. I am especially watching both sides of the line very closely. I want to see what players need to be upgraded.

    Let me know if you enjoy this, and I will do each of the games this season. Hopefully this can get us excited for next year. I looked at the Giants game from Week 1, and took notes during the game. Here is what I wrote:

    Offense

    Positives:

    Ryan Cook - He didn't play amazing, but for only having a week or so to prepare he did an awfully good job. Did excellent in pass protection. Did not notice any pressures. His run blocking in this game left more to be desired. Had hard time getting push in run game.

    Nate Livings - He played surprisingly good. Looks completely lost when trying to pull and get out in space. Completely whiffed a few times. But did not notice any pressures, and held up pretty well against excellent d line. Opened up a few big runs for Murray. One play threw JPP back into the ground and caused a 10 yard run for Murray. Best lineman in this game.


    Negatives:

    Mackenzy Bernadeau - He looked awful. Gave up a ton of pressures. It seemed like whenever Tony was getting pressure up the middle it was his guy. Also saw him get out in space a few times and completely whiff and fall over. He was by far the worst lineman in this game.


    Defense

    Positives:

    Barry Church: Watching this guy play gets me excited for next year. He plays full speed, and seems to always be around the ball. Always looks ready to make a huge collision. Came up with big fumble recovery. I am more then excited for him for next year. See big things with him.

    Jason Hatcher: Pleasantly surprised with him. Did not realize how active he is during games. He was constantly flashing in the backfield. When him, Spencer, and Ware were rushing the passer together it was extremely effective. He altered many running plays as well because of his constant disruption.

    Anthony Spencer: Watching him on tape makes me happy we have him another year. He was excellent at not only sealing the edge against the run, but he is definitely an underrated pass rusher. Made Eli through several bad passes by his pressures.

    Josh Brent: After watching this I am totally bummed about what happened with this guy. He would have been an excellent 1 technique in this system. He was constantly demanding double teams in this game. Extremely powerful and a lot more active then I remember.

    Negatives:

    Sean Lissemore - This guy looked to be a backup at best. When he was lined up at nose tackle, he got easily handled. The pass rush was non existent. At end, it wasn't much better.

    Marcus Spears - He was disappointing to say the least. He got blown off the ball in the run game, and his pass rush was non existent as well. I don't know if he looked worse at end or at nose. Saw him at nose a few times, and he barely moved.

    I appreciate that you took the time to write this up and share. I was most disappointed in Lissamore last year.

    Very good analysis. I will say this though, Lissemore is not A NT and will be perfect for the 4-3. This guy has Garrett written all over him. Overachiever from a small but highly educated school.

    He should be way more noticeable this season on the all 32.

    Excellent review man. Moar!! I hope like hell we cut Spears soon too. I think he is a cancer on this team.

    Definitely. I have been going through Seattle game now. Watching plays repeatedly to try to get everything. Maybe I'll do the whole season :)

    Based on???

    I've never heard anything about or out of this guy other than positive things in terms of effort and attitude. Just because he can't perform at the level we would like doesn't mean the guy is a cancer. But, it you have something to base your accusation on - I am open and would like to hear.

    Oh - Dan, the man, very well done. Nice post. Good analysis. Well presented in a clear fashion. Thanks so much your time. You help make the Zone a great place to come for a read...

    Sounds like Nate may be better at RG. Let Bernie fight it out at center and get a new LG through FA or the draft. Cooper would be ideal. IMO

    Bernie definitely looked like a guy who had been shelved with injury the entire offseason in this game. Luckily he got better as the season went along.

    Shoulda done this back in September, what happened in Week 1 of last year doesn't really apply to now and next season IMO.
