I don't think I heard Simeon Rice's name called once today. Superb job by a rookie dressing in his first NFL game!
I agree Streif was quietly one of the biggest stars of this game......Lost in all the attention Colston and Brees are (deservedly) getting was Streif's play. The kid just handled Rice all day. At one point the TV cameras showed Rice. His face showed pure frustration, all the visions he had of a multiple sack day versus a late round rookie were gone like a fart in the wind. It's incredible what Payton and Marrone expect from rookie. Instead of starting former Cowboys starting LT, Rob Petitti, they go with a completely unknown/unproven rookie and once again make the right choice.....Bress had the status, when when you look at how Strief made Siminon Rice disapear, in his first start ever, Strief should be the player of the game.
