    I think if the light ever truly comes on and stays on for this guy, that he could be an all pro type player in our system. Maybe last night against Seattle is the beginning.

    Also, I want to give a shout out to BJ Raji and our defense. I wish we played Seattle every week because our D gets up for them.

    Aaron Rodgers played like the HOFer he is in that game too. And Starks had a good game. Hell, it was a good game all around for us.

    Time will tell if he's a full-time player or not. There's no doubt that he made the most of his limited reps last night and made two huge plays.

    Not bad for an undrafted free-agent out of Toledo.

    I absolutely love Elliot and want to see him on the field more often.

    He has already begun to make his mark on STs and it may now be bleeding over onto the D. Good for him.

    This is the type of player the Packers must acquire and develop in lieu of rarely drafting higher in the order. They acquire young guys with raw talent and some flaws that the braintrust hopes will some day blossom into solid, reliable contributors and maybe even a little more.

    With Matthews playing inside full-time now it's important to get production from other outside linebackers. Elliott's snap count will increase if he continues to make great plays like yesterday.

    Seems odd to me that they aren't "up" every week. If the season were 162 games I could see being flat occasionally, but not in a 16 game season. That's on the coaches, imo. As Fox says about his Bears team: "We'll find guys who want to do it."

    Player of the game for his 2 turnovers collected.

    Great minds think alike. Elliot's boss, MM, essentially said the same thing about needing to get the kid out on the field more!

    I think he's a liability in run defense compared to Neal and Perry. Passing downs? Sure, why not.

    That must have been his first post game interview.

    I haven't seen him defending the run a whole lot so far so it's tough to make an educated guess about his ability.

    I've seen defend some runs in preseason, and there's a reason why you have not seen him doing it very much. Even his pass rush technique is one-note and unpolished, but he plays with a lot of energy and runs to the ball, something that is often lacking in this defense, even if that was not the case last night.

    PFF had Elliott ranked as the second best outside linebacker in run stop percentage during this year's preseason with seven stops on 41 run snaps.

    I am unconvinced. The other 34 run snaps against those 2nd. and 3rd. stringers include snaps showing a guy too often out of position. I think he's a still a year away from being a reliable 3-down player, which he may need to be with Perry and Neal in their contract years.

    Would it ever make sense to say 'thank goodness Lacy had to leave the game'? Not really but consider this from Jason Wilde:

    I'm not sure that's the reason Elliott was on the field late in the fourth quarter. If I recall it correctly he replaced Mulumba after the latter lost contain on Wilson several times.

    I thought all the outside guys looked good, Neal, Perry, and Peppers looked good. If Perry and Neal can stay healthy all year it will be good.

    That's right. I too read what captainWIMM's post referred to, but Wilde's story was more fun! (Seriously I don't know which is true.)

    As I´ve said repeatedly Neal made some nice plays defending the run and Perry had a maybe TD saving tackle on Lynch but none of them offered anything rushing the passer. The Packers will need at least one of them to improve in that department though with Matthews playing exclusively inside.
