Was not at the game, but saw the tape very late last night (was at Fenway-ugh!)
I saw some things that need attention and clean up quickly.
-too many penalties. Took 3 points off the board in the first half. I am betting that is what BB focuses on immediately
-the Mankins penalty looked like "usual Mankins" and what he always has done, but the refs are now going to flag these pushes
-I don't care who is on the field. Poor play and execution needs to be cleaned up regardless if the offenders make the team or not. That being said, lots of confusion and guys breaking free in the defensive backfield. Both Wilson's did not play well. The pick six is irrelevant, too many Buc's were open most of the night, in spite of the pressure generated by the Pats
-lots of players speculated to make the team due to stellar special teams play. Where were they last night?
-I would like to see more of Mallett next week. The more he takes snaps, the better he looks. Rusty, but lots to like. Can make every throw, can move a bit in the pocket, once he got comfortable, he moved the team.
-Tebow. Not sure what to think. Is he worth losing Blount, Cole, Fells or Ras? Is he bringing any more on the field than a young developmental player stashed on the PS?
-I would think if Armstead is not practicing this week he will not be ready to start the season. I have heard he has been watching practice. I do not know what he looks like, so have not seen him. I am curious as to his weight? I was hoping he played at around 305. I hope he has been able to keep his strength and size during this situation. I had also heard he was 280-285. What type of player is he if he is at 265-270?
-I earlier speculated on Ballard being on the fence. I think he is coming along. Dd not see his snap count last night but seemed like he was on the field more than the Eagles game. Still see him after Gronk and Sudfeld. Hooman is more versatile. Plays all ST's. does it come down to Ballard or Blount?
