    1. O-line had a very solid performance
    2. Najee represented
    3. Chase claypool was on fire. (can't believe I benched him in favor of juju on my fantasy squad)
    4. Shame on the defense for relaxing
    5. Pressley showed why he was drafted
    6. Ben still struggling with accuracy on his deep outs
    7. Cody white may have just put himself back on the practice squad
    8. James Pierre rebounded well, but better get it together, because he's gonna be picked on a lot going further
    9. Please, please, please let Najee be ok
    10. Enough of this cardiac BS.... When you've got a team down, keep them down

    Much better looking offense today but man these injuries. Bush and Najee. We can’t lose Najee

    Happy for the win, I’ll take it. That said, lucky we were up against a c level quarterback.

    This year it’s not just about winning, but showing growth in certain areas going forward. There was a lot of “we won” last year that amounted to Ben with his head down sitting on the bench

    It's a rebuild year. There are a lot of young players on this team. There's a new OC. There are some old guys struggling and/or missing. We aren't winning #7 this season but let's hope there is good development and growth. In the least, we will need a QB, CB, and DE next year. Probably OT, too. That's the four most important positions. Even with four picks in three rounds, and money to spend, it's gonna be really tough to plug all the leaks for 2022 but they could be better. It's really important for Dotson, Green, Moore, DJ, Clay, Harris, Muth, Highsmith, Bush, Minkah and some others to prove they are part of the long term solution.

    How much did the Bush injury influence them “relaxing?”

    Najee just had some cramping so he should be fine. Overall, good win got some help today as well with the Bengals losing to the Packers, the Browns hopefully will lose to the Chargers and the Steelers beat a Broncos team in the playoff mix. It’s why you can’t completely write a season off after 3 or 4 games. Too much can happen.

    wish we had kept JC. We would be far better off with Harris and JC than Harris/snell/ballage

    wish he would hurry up and get healthy. It would be nice to have a change of pace back.

    I feel your pain. I left him on the bench as well reasoning that Rodgers and Cobb were heating up and Chase was returning from injury..

    My take away is that its amazing how just changing up the amount of snaps from shotgun to under center to a very minimal degree resulted in some positive plays..

    Chuks is still not the answer at RT.

    Harris had a heck of a day but to be critical he could of had bigger if he puts his foot in the ground and goes. A few times he shimmied in the hole trying to pick a spot but the line had it blocked for an off tackle run and he had an angle.

    He and Ray Ray are going to be this year's Stefan Logan. They only bring them out for two play types and other teams know it.

    Everyone win is a legit win. The thing is though, would we have beat a better team the way we played today? I'm not convinced. Ben gave them a few gifts that should have been picked but they dropped them. And our defence was struggling at times. A win is a win, but I'm not optimistic about this season. I think we will end up being right around 500 at the end of the year

    If you're out there limping on a cramp, you're going to risk injuring something else. He doesn't go back out if they don't allow that last TD so quick!
