    Re: Defense

    Last nights effort is what I was talking about when I said they haven't showed me anything.

    Overall a damn fine effort.


    Mars, why do you question Chad?
    I watched him run with 2 TE's (no catches) and 2 WR's last night (no catches).
    He is pretty damn good in coverage IMHO.
    If they would/could've kept him singled up with Witten that cat wouldn't have gotten off last year against Dallas.

    Re: Defense

    I saw that Rodgers was put on his back again on Friday.
    I think our defense is going to have a field day against the Packers.
    Definately going to be a good way to start the season!!! ;D

    If you dont count the first series of either game we look really good in my opinion.
    I agree. They looked pretty decent to me in that game. The thing that worries me is our LBs in the pass defense. Especially Greenway.
    As I watched the game I had the same thoughts on Greenway

    I think Erin Henderson is going to make a push to be on this team.
    Any thoughts?

    Re: Defense

    I will be surprised if Erin doesn't make the 53 man roster.
    That kids just flying around the field, making tackles and forcing fumbles.
    I think it would be awesome if he could learn the LOLB position, and when Leber leaves, he could take over, playing beside his b rother and Greenway

    I think its hard to show anything in such a short time of playing in two games but I thought they did some things well but again got anxous to make big plays and found themselves out of there gaps. Last night was a correction of that issue and one that lead to a very stout defense.

    Last night was good effort but in previous games I saw some good effort out of alot of defenders. One guy that shined last night, like you said Chad Greenway. IMO he's playing faster because he's playing instead of thinking, the way he works the line of scrimage in blitz and non blitz situations is very smooth. We will be able to cause plenty of confusion with our front seven, last night we worked with the front four on there pass rush and they did a fine job by "themselves".

    That makes me feel better.
    Judging by some other posts, I was worried they were seeing something completely different from what I was seeing Chad do.

    As to last night, I think we finally saw a total effort by the D as a whole vice just a few individuals standing out.
    Again, I really believe as the season goes on this will become a very special group.

    I'd be very disappointed if he didn't.
    If we keep Circiu or Pope instead of this cat, then I will have a real problem with whomever is making the decisions in Minny.
    Erin has been very fun for me to watch this preseason.
    I know a guy that played HS ball with him, when Erin was also a RB and QB.
    I'd love to see him get a pick 6 next week to display his athletic running talent and solidify that roster spot.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
