I realize that the lockout wiped out a lot of practice time but I really expected alittle better performance, especially from the 1′s. The TD drive on the 2nd possession was nice but I think GB got the benefit of the doubt on the neutral zone infraction.
Yeah Coop don’t get too worried just yet. The defense did look pretty plain, and they kind of got walked over all night. But lets remember most of the big names on defense sat that one out. And Colt McCoy, according to many people, looks like he might pan out as a pretty good qb.
Not here for excuses. Not defending them because they are my team. They did look bad, but whether they did great or terrible, it’s not wise to suddenly judge and predict that is how the season will go.
Time will tell week 1, but I’m excited about this year like I was last year. Especially getting Finley, Grant back, and the addition on Cobb, who I’m very excited to watch him play.
The season can’t come any faster, thats for certain!
Joe, I would take Jones and Kuhn over Jenkins. Jenkins is a good player but the cap is the cap and Jenkins became more of a situational player rather then a three down player at the end of last year. He missed games after he got hurt in the 49ers game and the Packer defense did well without him and Jenkins saw a lot less of the field after he came back. Look at the super bowl. Green had a much bigger impact and more snaps in that game then Jenkins. Plus, Jenkins is over 30 and has a lengthy injury history. Plus, We do have Raji, Neal, Wilson, Green, Pickett, Wilson & Wynn.
We have Neal if he can stay on the field. My hang up is that while, I like Jones – we don’t need him, we aren’t short of WRs. Heck, we might have too many.
I understand all of the limitations that come with Jenkins as an older player. But we you look at need, the fact that Jenkins publicly stated he would take less to stay in GB, the fact that you need many d-linemen to rotate in during the course of a game, and our tremendous depth at WR (even without Jones), I think we took a gamble by letting Jenkins go.
I don’t doubt TT very often – he has certainly earned the benefit of the doubt – but I worry about this decision.
