Sloppy start on offense. Grimes looks like he's ready. No Edgar ??

Davis struggling with accuracy early. Needs to settle down a bit.

Davis needs to get his head in the game. some bad easy throws to open peeps. Good news is the plays seem to be there.

I’ll try to maintain patience, but this looks like the same Davis from last year which won’t cut it.

Agreed. This is bad QB play.

Nice defensive stand after giving up a big play with the missed tackle. Brady looks very shaky so far. Tossing way high and then trying to compensate and tossing it in the ground. He needs to settle down. No real running room for Robinson so far...need to hit some passes and loosen them up.

Nice defense all the way around except the one drive. NIU will punt to start Q2.

Time for Brady to step up and engineer a drive to loosen up their front 7 some.

One quarter in and Brady looks just like last year...no difference what so ever. Defense looks tough and playing well except of the one missed tackle. Brady needs to settle down. Receivers are open he can't hit them. If he starts completing those passes NIU has to back up some and maybe Robinson gets some room. NIU defensive line looks really, really good.

O line looks like swiss cheese. No blocking at all on those two 3rd down plays.
