Rewatched the game and came away more impressed with Bridgewater's pocket presence. Most of the pressure came in the middle. TB either waited until the last min to get rid of the ball or slid slightly to the side. For the most part hit his targets I stride especially Fant and allowed for decent yac.

Also TB spread the ball around quite well which will make it hard for defensive coordinators to exploit any tendencies.

Sutton was really quiet so guessing it was either snap count or his knee still needs more time.

Only one game but combined with the preseason and that the giants d is good, the Broncos offense looks like it might be top 10 for the year.
This is an interesting graph. Mostly short- intermediate high percentage stuff.

Another cool note (both bad and good) from Kosmider is that Teddy faced the second most pressure of any QB. Only the Steelers pressured Allen more than the Giants pressured Teddy. That’s the bad - so that says the Oline didn’t hold up well to a tough Giants Dline that we knew going in was good.

The good? In those 17 situations, Teddy completed 12 passes for 101 yards and a TD. On those 17 passes under pressure, he had a 105.3 passer rating. Compare that to across the board in the league in 2020, the QB rating under pressure was 24.8.

I’m sure that isn’t sustainable, but hopefully he won’t face that much pressure each week either.
I wonder how much Graham’s health issue played into the OL play in general. Some?

Good stuff, the Giants front 3 are for real, maybe the best in the league. They did get a push in the middle and stuff the run.

Honestly this is good. I'm really excited about all 3 of our tight ends. I was very impressed with Saubert in preseason.
For those of you who have The Athletic, a good feature on Saubert:


again, if you want a 30 day trial, send me your email and I’ll get that for you.

One indicator of how good the Broncos defense is - the Giant's offense looked pretty good against Washington's ballyhooed Defense.

I feel like Barkley is going to be that guy who is going to be better the year removed from the year after his injury. I hope the Giants play him somewhat safe this year, at least to start off.

I have him on my FF team. I didn't play him the first two weeks but will next week. I hope he gets better.
