A few comments from Meyer were correct after the game. Adam Rittenberg on ESPN got it wrong.
The new line on offense was not good in the first half. Game time and practice are two different things. All who play know this. They were much better in the second half.
Rittenberg said the defensive line has to be better. No they don't. Curtis failed to impress again at linebacker. Watch your replays. I must be spoiled, because he is the opposite of Shazier, Laurinaitis, Hawk, Wilhelm, Spielman...he constantly backs up against the run. I don't get it. Perry was much better than Curtis.
Barrett was fine. He threw two picks, thankfully the one was missed and didn't go for six. I am pleased with his overall game and first start against a good defense.
And wow on all those hyper fast skill players. There are only so many reps in the game for all of them. I wanted to see more of Marshall.
