    Those are the players I noticed. I thought Lansanah played very well and was in on a lot of plays and hustling. He needs to get more playing time. Gholston seemed to be showing effort. Stocker at least tried to hit someone, albeit after the whistle. But, I was most impressed with Scubog for staying up and watching the entire slaughter continuing his run of never missing a play since 1976. I then looked for The Battle at Little Big Horn on movies on demand to keep with the massacre theme of the night going.

    Lansanah out played Casilias in the preseason, and should’ve been named starter after his good play while the latter was home for breaking team rules. Glennon stands tall in the pocket, sees the field well, and again looked poised coming in under difficult conditions. It wasn’t a mistake signing McCown, but it was handing him the starters job. The team would’ve been better served if Josh, and Mike had to slug it out in the preseason. Mike showed enough promise last year, and had the respect of team leaders like McCoy to at least be given the chance to compete for the right to start. I’m jumping ship if Lovie insists on sticking with his journeymen over his second year pro.

      Glennon had nothing to lose, of course he was poised, he was under no pressure to win.

    No, no, no. There should be no players on this list. Just because a guy gets a stat (ie. forced fumbles by LJ, LD), doesn’t mean they should get on this list. Both of these plays happened well downfield and would not otherwise have been considered to be ‘good plays’ for the defence. Glennon was average. And Dane Fletcher – really?? Take a look at his first quarter pass coverage. They routinely burned him as he bit on every run fake, and he looked completely lost on H Douglas’ easy TD reception. From then on, he just guessed run every time – normally overrunning the hole – and happened to be correct a few times to get some stats. LJ certainly didn’t look impressive as Hester(!) beat him on a big 3rd down catch over his head either. Evans looked disinterested if the ball wasn’t coming his way either. So, with respect to PR who “has to” find some bright spots in an embarrassing performance, this is one where no players were truly impressive for an entire game. Sorry to be so negative.

    Surferdudes two good points and I agree with both. I can’t say McCown was a mistake. He was probably the best QB option and was highly sought after. Not making him compete in preseason was stupid. Just because he had few good games at end of season last year? Glennon is a back up in my opinion too but he looked better than McCown and I knew he would. I was also stunned after preseason that Lansanah didn’t get the nod to start over Casillas. Especially after Casillas had some trouble and missed a game.

    Like Scubog, I watched it all. I never got upset; I have decades of past history and have learned from it.

    My only beef is that I think we should have been spotted 30 points as we have no arrested wife beaters on our team.

    The never ending patience of long time season ticket holders for coming back game after game despite stubborn coaching, false promises and crappy effort. Despite hiring a HC living in the past, despite another season already lost to ineptitude, despite the disappointment, we’ll be back. THAT’S impressive…. or stupid. LOL Scott had to be dreading writing this article.
