    Well defense has been better although that last fumble recovery was pure luck.

    I feel bad for Mack, no one comes back from an Achilles tear the same. Might need to hang them up after he's benched for Peirce

    Pierce is 4 for 4. Not sizing him up for the gold jacket yet, but definitely 4 impressive runs, against Saints backup D more than likely, but looks like the hype is justified early

    Deflection interceptions are the worst

    Bad turnover. Not Driskell's fault. However, he has been looking good. REALLY GOOD

    It is his fault because he threw to Pierce too late and too high.

    Small sample size, but he runs like Foster with more power. The fluidity of the cuts.


    Foster was obviously a bigger back, but I could see similarities. I'll be curious to see if that holds true going forward.

    Dude is a concussion protocol waiting to happen, lowers his head even when he doesn't have to. Love the way he runs, but damn.

    Not a Driskel fan. He had some decent moments, but there’s no upside to him and he’s nearly 30. I think the Texans would like to see Kyle Allen, but he had COVID and couldn’t play. Right now, like it or not, Driskel is winning the backup QB battle. Allen needs a good game next week.
