OVERALL: There were definitely some rough edges. But all in all, it was a fun game to watch once everyone loosened up a bit.
OFFENSE: The depleted starting offensive line really had its hands full against some unproven D-linemen. Red flags are up here.
DEFENSE: The starting defense dominated. But it was facing a completely overmatched offense, so we can't give too high of a grade here.
SPECIAL TEAMS: There were no live returns so it is difficult to rate this area properly. Speaking of red flags, though, a botched extra point is not acceptable at any time of the year.
COACHING: James Franklin and company appeared to do a good job of getting work for everyone who needed it.
INTANGIBLES: There was definitely a positive vibe in the stadium.
OTHER GUY: There was no other guy this week.
OFFICIALS: The refs called only seven penalties and kept the game moving at a brisk pace after the first quarter. Nice job, men.
CROWD: Great turnout of 72,000 on the nicest day of the year to date in Happy Valley.
