First Half Notes: 

  • Dan Lanning has identified a pass-rushing package on obvious passing downs. Adam Anderson, Travon Walker, Devonte Wyatt, Nolan Smith, and even Nakobe Dean at linebacker. 
  • Dominick Blaylock saw his first snaps of the season and even got a look at a few punts on Punt Return.  
  • Despite a fumble, Eli Wolfe had a solid first half. Had 4 catches in the first half.
  • We knew George Pickens was going to be good, but holy cow! 
  • Monty Rice is one of the best linebackers in the country. His play recognition is off the charts. 
  • Stetson Bennett replaced Jake Fromm with 3:02 left in the first half.
