I feel like this needs to be said... guys...... who CARES if our backup QB sucks? What do you expect? If Rodgers goes down, we're ******. And guess what? If any of the other elite QBs in the league go down, their teams are ******. Flynn was a luxury that rarely happens. I think we should keep discussions about backup QBs in context.
Anywho.. thoughts so far..
Davon House. Say hello to our #2 corner. He is simply better than Bush in every facet and a more physical and polished player than Shields. His physical tools are better than Heyward and his coverage is just further along, as to be expected. He has that locked up.
Nick Perry. Had some good pressures and some decent plays against the run. Didn't see anything to make me fret about him.
Randall Cobb. He's just too good for #3 or #4 CBs. He's been wide open all night. He's going to become one of the very best slot WRs in the game this year.
Safeties. Wow. Our safeties looked bad. Levine was the class of the group and it wasn't even close. I wouldn't be surprised if Woodson becomes basically a permanent safety as our depth at CB seems superior to our options at safety. Heyward or Jennings/McMillian isn't even close right now. Heyward had some mistakes tonight but he's a far superior option at this point.
Starks. James Starks sucks. He's terrible. I've never been high on him and he's actually getting worse. It seems like he has taken all of his problems, ie.. drops, fumbles, running upright, and magnified them. He has a bad work ethic and very limited upside. Green is the future and quite possibly the present.
Dline. I didn't see the push/presence we've been hoping for. It's early but Worthy didn't show up.
Overall it was a messy first preseason game. Saw some good things from our young defense guys and a lot of sloppy play and poor safety play.
