Kyle Orton looked pretty good last night

I was pleasantly surprised by my fellow Boilermaker last night. Orton completed 10 of 17 last night for 147 yards and no interceptions. He seemed composed in the pocket and very comfortable with Rashied Davis whom he hit for two touchdown passes. On the flip side the defense was less than stellar. They missed too many tackles which allowed San Francisco to march up and down the field with impunity. Normally the defense of this team is what carries them but last night they were better offensively. Now to special teams, Daniel Manning looked awesome returning kicks last night. This is important because teams are going to go out of their way to avoid kicking to Devan Hester. But Manning gave them the short field to operate on as well. I am not so worried about the Browns next week I am more concerned about week one vs. Indy
