    The dline looked solid yesterday and that was without Brown, Morgan, or Hayes. They were in the quarterbacks face almost every play and even notched a sack.

    Our starters looked a lot better than their starters at every position. I know its just the Seahawks but anyone else feel good after seeing us get pressure?

    I'll be excited when they do it against an offensive line that isn't notorious for getting their QB killed.

    I'm hoping the lineup ends up like this:
    Ford - Jones - Brown - Morgan

    then have William Hayes back-up both DE spots and Babin gets a little bit of time. Jovan Haye will back-up DT.

    I thought our D-Line would bounce back, and it seems they have. We saw a good showing from them last night, and that was the backups vs Seattle's starters. Other than Jason Jones, did any other starter D-Lineman play?

    That's a good point. I thought Ford played. Hayes, Morgan, and Brown were all out though.

    I thought the DB's did good without Finny and Fuller out there as well. I really, really liked what I saw from our starters yesterday.

    I agree...the starters looked good. We were on 2nd team D-Line, and they did pretty good early.

    It is still preseason though...the real test is still a few weeks away.

    They played way better then I expected it just goes to show how good our D line coach is.
    Jones, Marks,Badin<(I think thats his name number 93)and that #99 dude look solid all game long.

    i couldnt really tell, to many starters were out. the Seahawks were able to burn Mouton so they didnt really have to hold the ball that long.

    If Cortland opposite of Verner, and all the D line starters were playing i'd say we could have killed the Seahawks QB's.

    I can't wait til week-1 of the regular season. I was glued to last nights game and it doesn't even count. The D-Lines number 2's gave us something to be excited about come the real games. Wonder how good we can be with our better players in the lineup.

    Eh... too early to tell. I worry about our DTs. 1 or 2 injuries and this line could be the Achilles heel of the team.
