Our punter should just be cut.

You can’t tell me there’s not better available.

I understand it's preseason. I get it. But the defensive secondary and holes in the middle line backer position (as well as depth) are serious areas of concern.

Lets not pretend it isn't a systemic problem. Having said that, I have faith they will get better before the season starts. But that doesn't mean the middle of the field, ILB, and the secondary aren't areas that need massive improvement. And one offseason isn't going to fix it right away.

I just finished rewatching the first half. A few notes...

The wr easily ran by Burnett on the quick slant in the open field.

Saw McCullers walk the center back into Rodgers on 1 play

Edmunds...
Nice play on the OOB pick. Looked good doing it.
A heady play to strip the ball out and recover.
IMO, seemed to get lost for a split second on the TD to Graham which was enough for Rodgers.
Overall, seems that Edmunds has made plays since the start of training camp during practices... and it has carried over (so far). A good sign, IMO

Chickillo missed a tackle on a punt return.

Dupree beat his man off the edge but the ball was out too quick.
Dupree beat his man off the edge for a sack.

Finney looked pretty good pulling to the left, IMO

1 or 2 overthrows by Rudolph that could have been completed. (it happens though)

Saw #92 flush the qb out of the pocket on 1 play

Thought Chuks looked ok when I watched him, except he got walked back into Rudolph on the strip.

Samuels made a defender miss on a dump off.

Jake Rodgers got beat on an inside move. Rudolph sacked.

Clan, its good to see this site getting back to what makes it special- "non nicknamed" analysis. Fine work.

Thanks for doing this Clan. Good work. Agree with most of what you shared.
I'm not sold on Rudolph but our receiver corp is going to be sick.
Nice to focus on football.

Agree with Clan, why is anyone praising Dobbs? He should have 5 INTs minimum through 2 games. He's thrown 12-15 horrible passes.

Fuck yeah on Washington. I just watched this game for the first time last night and man that dude looks like he can go haul in anything. AB JuJu Washington this year our boy Ben has to be licking his chops :twisted:

Every year they have a camp with more hitting than most NFL teams, then they get to this point of the POSTSEASON and look moribund. I wouldn’t panic about anything. Next week, they’re at home, Ben plays, crowd is fired up, defense will play much, much better as a whole.


Fixed that for you

Maybe one of these playoff games they'll learn how to play defense and get a stop

I agree, I think Ben is licking his football chops.

Like others, I am starting to wonder if we are going to be able to count on McDonald for a ps run. Maybe he will be there, maybe not.

But regardless... AB/JuJu/Washington should be enough to make the vertical passing game formidable.
