    Bye Week Key Players' Report Card

    Here are my grades after 7 games:

    Marc Bulger: B.
    Has played steady football and kept big mistakes to a minimum, but can do better.

    Marshall Faulk: B-
    Dropped balls and inconsistent production lowers grade.

    Steven Jackson: B+
    Off to a good start. Needs to get more touches.

    Joey Goodspeed: B+
    Has settled into role of staring FB.

    Isaac Bruce: A
    Most consistent offensive weapon.

    Torry Holt: B
    Has disappeared at times as he faces more double teams.

    Shaun McDonald: B+
    Becoming more of a threat.

    Kevin Curtis: B
    Needs to be more constistent as he begins to show potential.

    Dane Looker: C-
    Big drop-off from reliable 3rd down receiver of last year.

    Brandon Manumaleuna: C
    Apart from big catch at Seattle, a non-factor in offense.

    Orlando Pace: B
    Have to hold him to a high standard. He's been solid, not spectacular.

    Adam Timmerman: B+
    Aging vet still has it.

    Andy McCollum: B+
    Better than Wohlabaugh was last year.

    Chris Dishman: C+
    Showed some promise before injury.

    Scott Tercero: C
    Better suited at G than at T.

    Grant Williams: D
    He's not a long term solution at RT.

    Leonard Little: C+
    Disappointing start for defensive playmaker.

    Damione Lewis: B+
    Finally showing some steady play as a starter.

    Ryan Pickett: B+
    Underrated but solid at the nose tackle spot.

    Bryce Fisher: B+
    Has done a good job replacing Grant Wistrom.

    Anthony Hargrove: B
    Rookie starting to emerge.

    Pisa Tinoisamoa: A
    Best defender thus far.

    Robert Thomas: C-
    Inability to stay healthy a concern.

    Tommy Polley: B-
    Some flashes after being benched but needs more consistency.

    Brandon Chillar: B-
    Has played okay as rookie. Hopefully has an upside.

    Trev Faulk: A-
    Grade raised by stellar special teams play.

    Travis Fisher: Incomplete
    Hopefully will make an impact now that he's returned from injury.

    Jeremetrius Butler: C
    Adequate, at best.

    DeJuan Groce: C-
    Not quite adequate.

    Adam Archuleta: B-
    Sometimes I think he should just bulk up and play LB.

    Aeneas Williams: C+
    Eventually, Father Time catches up with everyone.

    Rich Coady: C
    Coverage skills are lacking.

    Jeff Wilkins: A-
    Not perfect, but still "Money."

    Sean Landeta: B
    Solid enough.

    Mike Martz: B
    Still marching to the beat of his own drum.

    I wouldnt give Pisa an A. I think he struggles in pass coverage. Very solid for a second year guy, but not dominant yet. I think Pace deserves better than a B and faulk better than a B minus. I would give looker a D minus. Huge fumble in the saints game and huge drop on a wide open pass in the dolphins game. Basically, a non factor.

    On the whole, i think the grading was very fair and reasonable.

    Subjectivity rarely produces unanimity.

    Re: Bye Week Key Players' Report Card

    On that point we can unanimously agree!
    Furthermore, lack of pass rush breeds problems in any secondary.

    Pisa really needs a mentor at MLB to become a dominate player i.e. will thrive on emotion (which we lack)

    TE is still a problem that needs to be addressed.. Manu is not the answer

    I think Tercero deserves a bit of slack... he should at least develop into a solid LG which is fine.

    pretty good assessment overall AV,

    I think for Martz you could have added: needs consistency. It just seems like he will do good for a couple of games and then disappear for a game. Maybe a little more consistency out of Martz and the team will be a little bit more consistent.
