    Yeah, he looks like a young stud. I think he will progress well in the NFL... Barnett is not producing as much.. I would love to see the Hawk-Hodge duo.

    Are you serious? Barnett has done a fine job this year. We need to re-sign him.

    I agree with you. If Barnett is not healthy enough then we shouldn't rush him back. If Hodge proves he can play then Barnett actually could be used as trade bait for maybe a Safety or something...

    He's doing solid. I never said he's doing horrible, I just said he isn't producing as much as he has the last couple of years.

    Are you sure Barnett doesn't have a broken Ankle?

    Maroney sure did a number on him.

    His ankles are banged up, but doesn't sound like they're broken.

    He's not playing because of his terrible pass coverage.

    If you thought Poppinga was bad at the beginning of the year. You ain't seen nothin'!

    I think he has done a very good job as well. I say keep him in there if he can play close to 100%. But if that injury starts giving him problems it is time to sit him down. But hey im all for resignning him

    you guys are freaking killing me. while i do think that if Barnett is really hurt he should rest this week or at least play less minutes.

    but the fact that you want to rush in a rookie ILB over the most consitent performer we have had on defense in YEARS. is retarded.

    he is also the only one trying to take a leadership role.

    i mean what more could you possibly want from a guy who has lead the team in tackles the past 3 years

    "...because Hodge is better at playing the run than the pass, Hodge could play on early downs and Barnett in passing situations.

    The coaches were impressed with Hodge during training camp early on, but he faded because he had trouble covering one-on-one..."

    Barnett hopes pain goes away

    Hodge and Poppinga? We have enough problems in the secondary.

    :kickcan: If nothing else sitting Barnett for a few plays may give GB some indication of whether Hodge is going to be able to play the position. The negatives on his play against the pass may well be something that can be corrected. I'd hate to see barnett aggravate what is probably a somewhat painful injury if sitting one or even two games will benefit his recovery.
