    I'll say our two rookies at guard didn't do bad once they got some jitters out of the way. I liked the fact there was some push in the ground game - not as much penetration for a huge loss as in the past.

    IMHO Calhoun didn't look good early. Allowed several of the early pressures. I didn't pay as much attention to him past the first qtr. But it was his first game. Mills was by far the worst lineman to me. I'd rather give an unproven player a roster spot and save a little cap space than keep him.

    Mills at LT and Holden at RT were as bad as I have ever seen. They whiffed constantly.

    I saw Mills basically give up on one play...he is to weak and slow to play.

    Jesse Davis and Calhoun are both terrible in pass protection. Along with Mills and Holden.

    Now you know why I was asking if Prince was getting any reps. There's just no way he's not better than these guys. If he's not then he has no shot to play in the NFL.

    Why was Mills put at LT and not Sterup? Will Holden got the start at RT? This is a guy who sucked for AZ last year. Where was Davis? I thought I saw him at one point.

    I plan on re-watching the game. That announcing crew is a comedy of errors. Dick Stockton needs to hang his spurs up. JT had to be thinking "WTH?".

    I think he called Preston Williams by the wrong name but I can't remember what he said.

    Mills needs to move to guard, space is not his friend.

    When you get a chance to watch the game get back to us. I’d love your opinion. I was shocked at how quick Prince looked. Even though it was against 3rd stringers I was very happy with Prince.

    Dieter was the only o linemen I was able to individually focus on. I wouldn't call his performance impressive by any means, but I was somewhat encouraged from what I saw from a first game of a mid round starter.

    I really liked the intelligence I saw. He didn't seem to get overpowered and he made a lot of good switches when his blocking assignment was empty. It just looked like the game moved a little fast for him. There were multiple plays I saw where he made the correct read and went to assist other linemen in pass pro with their assignment, but he was just a step slow and ended up blocking no one. I think once he adjusts to the speed of the game he has a lot of promise.

    How is it we haven’t heard one good thing about prince in practice reports, but he straight up looked like a player yesterday? His kick step at the snap was beautiful. He didn’t get overpowered. He drove players past the QB well too

    It would have been funny if it weren't so sad, but the camera had a few replays directly behind both Fitzpatrick and Rosen and as soon as the ball was snapped the Falcons just bumrushed the middle of the line. Each time they did it I wrote, "JAILBREAK!" on the game thread.

    Both QB's showed savvy to get away from that rush....

    This O Line will get Fitz killed(don't really care) AND prevent Miami from properly scouting Rosen.

    3-13 might have been optimistic.....Tua is ours.
