There’s little purpose to this post other than to give credit where credit is due.
While Randall Cobb will grab all the headlines for his highlight-reel plays, it’s quite possible Scott Wells had as good a game as a center can possibly have, all in relative obscurity.
I have yet to watch a replay of the game and can offer few specifics, but I certainly don’t need a replay to tell me they played well.
Chad Clifton did what you’ve come to expect out of Chad Clifton. But perhaps best of all for the left tackle, he proved healthy and effective.
T.J. Lang, when not committing false start penalties, did well both run and pass blocking. It kind of reminded me of Bryan Bulaga’s performance against the Bears in the regular season finale against the Bears last year. He’ll get reamed for the penalties, but actually was effective when taking penalties out of the equation.
Josh Sitton can blow defensive linemen off the ball and got great push in the run game. He’s a star in the making.
Bryan Bulaga, when teamed up with Sitton, can really create some holes on the right side of the offensive line in the run game. Ditto the star in the making for Bulaga too.
For Week 1′s performance, James Campen deserves major kudos.
