    The funny thing is that two of the guys on that list lost, and one other probably would have if Braylon Edwards could catch. :icon_rofl:

    Just like he did last year. In the game that Olivea sat out with an injury, Burgess had two sacks. In the game Olivea started, he had 0. Too bad Shane "TRex" Olivea can't pass protect. :icon_rofl: :icon_huh:

    I think the fact that we only dropped back 11 times has a lot to do with it.

    Our OL still needs work IMO.

    Out of 11 times how many times did Rivers feel heat?

    I can seriously only remember once and we all saw what happened then...

    But I do agree with you, 11 pass attempts makes it easy to produce a sackless day.

    If Brooks had dropped back to pass 11 times, he only would have been sacked 6 times. :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl:

    I only remember that one time. Not bad, but it will change when we start passing more.

    Dielman and Hardwick struggled. Especially against the run.

    I don't want to be a Debbie-downer, but when your QB only throws 11 passes and the opposing team is 100% focused on LT, you shouldn't give up any sacks.

    One thing I noticed is that PR's quick-release does seem to be real, and not just a training camp/preseason phenomenon. Brees wouldn't have completed that pass to Parker with Sapp in his face. I think PR's release will save us eight or nine sacks over the course of the season.

    I swear that Rivers can throw two passes in the time it takes Leftwich to throw one. That guy seems like he's in slow motion during his windup.

    I really like that quick release to go along with his accuracy. Should be a fun 10 years or so.

    Not to mention he put pretty good mustard on that throw to Parker. That wasn't horrible coverage by the Raiders and if you look at the replay, the window-of-opportunity really wasn't all that wide open. He threw that ball on-time with perfect accuracy and very good velocity with a guy getting ready to blow him up.

    It was beautiful. (sniff)

    Word. Leftwich has the slowest wind up in the league. His big arm doesn't begin to make up for that slow delivery.

    I'll take Rivers' solid arm and lightning release anyday.

    And his accuracy will win a few games that Drew possibly wouldn't have won with his "somewhere within reach" passes.

    I was totally impressed with how Rivers puts that ball right on the money. His 'worst' completion was when Gates had to catch the ball around his head instead of on the numbers.

    I can't wait to see Rivers when he's allowed to finally open it up and use the whole playbook.:icon_banana:
