I just read that House will be in a shoulder strap all year and very limited with his aggressive bump and run play. Who was the moron that put the potential answer to the starting CB job at risk to injury in the 3rd qt of a meaningless game? With the problems this D had last year, losing a talent like House is troublesome. If I was the HC of this team, I would have had a rule that kept the following players off the STs list (especially in a PS game). Arod, Benson, Jennings, Finley, Mathews and the 4 starting secondary members (woodson, Burnet, Williams and House) and probably Ntelson. That leaves 43 other players ,from a 53 man squad, to choose from to play on a 11 man STs unit.
Dan, maybe I’ve got some sort of brain lock, but who the hell is Benson?
He was the Mayor’s aid….didn’t you watch the show??
Dan, my problem with your comment is you’re talking about a guy who couldn’t get on the field last year like he’s Tramon Williams. While he was playing well in camp, he wasn’t a lock for winning the job. He’s a 2nd year player – unless you are a star – you are going to play special teams.
Very helpful list Al. I wonder if Saine, Levine and So’oto would be willing to go on the Packer PS considering they got a taste at the big league level last year. I’d imagine they would if nothing else presented itself. I think Saine would produce the most interest from other clubs.
Wouldn’t mind stashing Guy on the PS to see if he can develop.
Well, if they get no offers from other teams, of course they would go to P/S. Keeps them on the radar of other teams and they do draw a salary.
Benson is our new RB who I really think is going to be valuable, I would also add Newhouse and maybe Perry to my list also. Thats12 guys that I personally would not risk on STs, unless it was a playoff game and I felt that player would be that much of a difference maker.
Al, I understand your logic with House only being a 2nd year player, but, with the progress this kid made from year one to year two, and taking in consideration the fact that my team had the worst passing D in NFL history the year before, and with no clear answer on a starter at CB, and the fact that I had to insert J bush into the starting line up, I personally would have been much more cautious with house in the 3rd qt of a meaningless game. I still think it was a stupid move. And if you did want to give him more playing time in that game, put him back out at CB for more reps, not ST .at least he would be gathering more experience at a possition he should be playing. Before House was injured I made a comment to my friend about why house was playing STs in the 3rd qt, and then sure enough, he got hurt. I was happy that we had a front running candidate for CB and now I’m bummed out about the injury. I hope Heywood can step up and if I see him on STs I’m going to fly to GB and kick MM in the ass…lol
I just read that J Bush is our starting CB for week one……I rest my case!!
Injuries are part of the game. Can’t wrap the players in bubble wrap. Even one snap on offense, defense, or special teams will expose them to injury risk.
Exactly my point Chad, injuries are part of the game, so don’t expose key players, or potential key players ,to un-necessary risk, like on STs ,when there are other options (especially in a meaningless game). I have listed 12 key players that I personally would not risk on STs. That leaves 42 players to choose from for a 11 man STs unit. I’m having a hard time understanding why people don’t catch on to this logic. It seams like a good formula to help a ball club exceed. I understand that STs are important, but, come on, finding 11 players out of the remaining 42 , to play on a STs unit, can’t be that difficult.
