    The Packers defense actually really impressed me this week, they've been holding the Bengals offense to under 200 yards all game, getting 2 turnovers, should we be less worried now?

    Less worried, yes. But we need to wait and see them against better teams during the regular season to make that call.

    I have just been really impressed I mean holding the Bengals under 200 yards, getting those interceptions and forced fumbles, I have to say I have a little more faith now.

    Bengals are not the ultimate team to face on offense but, nevertheless, we did show signs of being able to make plays, get some pressure, and make a goal line stand. I we can keep guys on the field. Teams may try to go over the top down the sideline and challenge our corners in single coverage a lot this year unless we can get pass pressure and some safety help ala Woodson,

    Preseason means nothing. We didn't really gameplan for them. They didn't really gameplan for us. But from a practice perspective, things are looking pretty good.

    either way it was a lot more impressive then what I've seen our 2 other pre-season games so I'm happy and looking forward to week 1.

    Pass rush looks a lot improved from last season, Perry looked strong again, and the run D looks good. Also thought Tramon was spectacular tonight, looks like he's feeling a lot better than he did last year!

    Gotta take everything in the pre-season with a grain of salt, but I am encouraged after tonight's showing.

    Umm. Anybody know who our 3rd CB is? Behind Tramon and Woodson.. Or who appears to have won in the M.D Jennings/ Jerron McMillian safety battle?

    Woodson isn't a CB this year he's Strong Safety. http://www.packers.com/team/depth-chart.html

    All I wanted to see was us putting pressure on the QB, they did just that. I am very pleased with last nights performance, hopefully we can do the same in week 4 :)

    We will still have trouble slowing down the gunslingers we face this year. What I hope is that we don't let the average QBs carve us out like last year. We face a number of those also this season.

    The Bengals gained just 87 yards and five first downs in the first half against the Packers’ No. 1 defense. Going three and out 4 out of their first 6 drives. I know preseason is preseason blah blah blah. But it was the first extended action we got to see with the whole crew out there and they looked gooood. Gave up a few runs bigger than I would have liked to see but when the field got shorter the D got much much tighter. I love the goal to go situation that we saw. Not biting on the PA on first and goal and keeping tight coverage, GREAT penetration on 2nd and goal and the unblocked sack from Walden on 3rd and goal. Perfect.

    I think its going to be House and Tramon starting with Hayward the 3rd; Bush 4th and Shields #5. Bush and Shields will probably flop back and forth.

    That is for the base, which in my opinion, we are going to be playing a lot more of this season. I think moving from the base last season had more to do with a lack of DL than anything else. That shouldn't be an issue this season.
