James Casey's Performance

What are y'all's thoughts?  I've seen it mentioned a couple places that he didn't look great and couldn't move people out of holes (LZ, Kuharsky, one other I forgot).

I watched him specifically on about 90% of the plays and thought he did a damn good job.  Not once did he miss a block or lose ground.  He was standing people up with a nice collision.  No, for the most part he wasn't knocking people backwards between the tackles but honestly I don't remember Vonta doing it a whole lot (between the tackles).  Usually it's just a brick wall collision, and I feel like the FB's done his job if he stands the LB up even if he doesn't clear him out.

The two times I saw Casey go wide for a block, he took the guy completely out of the play with a very physical block. Granted, one was a DB, but one was an outside backer.  

Just wondering if the comments around town are confirmation bias as Steph was discussing today (ie projecting what you expect to see) or if anyone thought Casey played as well as I thought he did.  Then, again, I'm a big Casey fan, so I'm sure I have some confirmation bias of my own.
