Tom E. Curan and Mike Giardi discuss three of their big takeaways from Sunday night's win over the Broncos.

Here's what Curran thinks of some key players and moments during the game.
 
1. Stevan Ridley's fumbling issues

"Tell him to cut it out. Stop the fumbling with the football. Then you ask him not to turn his back at the line of scrimmage and leave the ball with one arm so that 11 players have the opportunity to hit a ball that's not tucked in. Then you probably bench him for one week and you make him work through it in practice and earn his way back on the field and establish the level of play you anticipate from him over the last six weeks."

2. Dont'a Hightower's poor - and then nonexistent - play

"Hightower was alarmingly disinterested it seemed during the Broncos' touchdown drive of 80 yards. We looked at that play, down the middle there was a play on which he could not disengage. It looked like he two-gapped all the way for about 8 to 10 yards down the field. It happened again, and then it happened finally where he didn't turn around at all and gave a very disinterested effort on Jacob Tamme's touchdown."

3. Young secondary

Curran is impressed with the Rutgers guys - Duron Harmon and Logan Ryan. He says the two players add dependable depth to the secondary. Check out the video to see what he had to say.
