    They didn't really throw near Landry's way, he probably had a few tackles.

    Stephon Heyer came in when Jansen went down, and played really well against Jason Taylor. For a UFDA, amazing lol.

      How the heck is that a rookie mistake? From the time you start playing football, you know to go to the first down marker. Rookie mistake doesn't even begin to cover something like that. The only legit rookie mistake I can think of is not making sure a player is touched after he goes down.

        Yeah neither Landry or Taylor were challenged, all they had to do was cover the run which they are two of the best in the league at. Landry blitzed on a couple plays. Miami barely challenged us vertically at all, most of Trent Green's few yards were on intermediate pass plays picking on Smoot all day. No one got beat deep and we could have easily held them close to zero if we didn't allow that last second play at the end of the half which was a great read by Trent. And yeah Stephon Heyer is amazing so many teams must be kicking themselves for not just not drafting him but not signing him undrafted. His future is really great, too bad for Jon Jansen though as he might not ever suit up again. HB Blades made some nice special teams plays, and would be starting had we not signed London Fletcher, but he will be a Fletcher clone in 2 years time.

          Anthony Spencer is really starting to grasp things for the Cowboys, after looking dazed an confused for the first part of camp and into the preseason. If he continues this kind of improvement, he will have a shot at DROY, and you will likely hear from him on a few of the highlight shows.

          That said, no other rookies play significant time, except Nick Folk, the PK who was only overshadowed by Crosby's great day, but he did extremely well.

              Jamaal Anderson - Didn't see much of him, but after 1 game I won't jump to conclusions

              Chris Houston - When he came in seemed to do well in coverage

              Justin Blalock - He didn't really have a chance as the whole O-Line was being pushed around, not fun facing Pat/Kevin Williams in your first NFL start

                What were everyone else's impressions of Calvin Johnson's first game? I ask this because apparently Fabian Washington was not impressed.

                Maybe it was just the run-off from sour grapes in the losers' locker room, but Raiders cornerback Fabian Washington wasn't in a mood to compliment Lions super-rookie Calvin Johnson after the Raiders' 36-21 loss -- even after Johnson had dragged him across the field on a 16-yard touchdown play in the third quarter.

                "He wasn't that great to me," Washington said afterward. "They did things to get him open, like pick routes and all that. But he was nothing special, trust me."

                  well in all fairness Ryan had our secondary playing in zone coverage.to many weapons not enough CB depth to play man I guess.

                    Leon Hall can flat out tackle. Regardless of what anyone thinks otherwise he just doesn't miss tackles and I love that.

                    He was solid in coverage Monday night, most importantly he didn't make any mistakes in his first game/start.

                    Chinny Ndukwe was our only other draftee to play significant time but he really didn't do much because Jackson came back in before long.

                          He didn't meet my expectations, but I expected him to completely dominat which is very unrealistic for a rookie. Overall it was good, with good recievers around him he won't get as many touches as in college. I had hoped to see alot of bombs to him but that wasn't his call.
                          "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

                            Calvin johnson is decent and nothing more... He still lacks a lot of skill in pivotal areas to even reach the plateau of a good number 2 IMO.

                                Really, please detail for me all these pivotal areas he's lacking in. That would be most entertaining.
