The Best get Better
August 14, 2009 by MadisonMadnuff
Well after Thursday night there is one thing that is clearly apparent and that is the good get better. All eyes were on Tom Brady last night in his first action since game 1 last year. Tom Brady proved to be very good for his first game back. He was accurate but did have trouble with the deep ball you can tell that he is still leery about his knee when he has to sit in the pocket for long, but other than that he looked good. One thing I noticed is the bend in his knees when he dropped back and the slight bounce or chop in his feet. He still has a long way to go in that department but I say the effort to break his old habit of a straight leg delivery and little motion in the pocket was apparent. Brady looks to be dangerous in this upcoming season.
On the other side the defending champs , believe it or not, look like their defense has only gotten better. It was an actual shock that the starters played as efficient as they did and were able to make plays with out doing as much scheming and blitzing as they will do in the regular season. The only weak point could be seen in the number two corner spot where you can tell the young corners are still trying to find their stride. The positive of that is that Polamalu was able to pick up the slack for those corners while he was in the game. Write this down now, “You will see the Steelers defense be even more dominant this year than they were last year”. I know it is just preseason but Vegas has gotten the top two teams write this year maybe just not in the correct order.
