For the first time this season we got to see some extensive action from two defensive players who should be a major part of our defense in the future. Brandon Graham looked quick, healthy, and fully confident in his surgically repaired knee. When a running back went low on a block, Graham took it in stride and continued to the qb for a pressure. When he was chasing a ballcarrier and there was a big scrum to bring him down, Graham threw his hat into the pileup without hesitancy. Overall I came away very excited with how BG looks. I loved this pick then and I love this pick now. If he gets that knee back to 100% Graham will become a defensive leader for us.
When I saw Jarrett out there on special teams early in the game I was excited and noted that finaly Jarrett was on the active roster. Little did I know he'd soon be starting for a concussed Allen. It's impossible to give a fully accurate appraisal of his performance without the game tape, but at least he looked decisive, able to tackle, and on first impression... looked to me like he belonged.
Anyone else see anything or have any observations on these two?
