Doug Free play by play vs Oakland

Here is Doug Free's play by play.  This is my first stab at a play by play so feel free to point out anything I may have missed.  Free was in for 20 plays including three with Kitna at QB.  From what i saw there is no worry with Free on passing plays, he stands the DE up or rides him outside.

On the one play where he was a bit late catching a looping DT he showed enough athleticism to get out and get a shove on the DT enough so that Romo could complete a 19 yard gain to Austin.
