I've seen the words "good progress" used. It seems weird to put good + progress.

I've read words like "deafening silence". The combination looks good. However, "good progress" just doesn't sound right.

Progress as in a report card can be typically classified into varous degrees viz. excellent/good/satisfactory/unsatisfactory/poor.
