I knew it was a mistake keeping that guy off the field. Dude just has a good knack for finding the ball.

How was this guy not on the field from Day One?

I'm a Kubiak fan, but this just seemed like a no-brainer to me and a lot of other people.

Better late than never I suppose.

Was he in there as the FS or an extra DB? I know I saw Barber in there some as well. Hopefully this performance sets him up to be the guy for the rest of the season. Eugene shouldn't be a factor at all.

I think people should temper the excitement. I have wanted him on the field too, but he's still essenttially a rookie.

I think hell be a beast but I also expect some mistakes a long the way.

If his mistakes include double INTs, then Im all for letting him make mistakes

Better to endure mistakes from a guy with upside than watching mistakes from Wilson with no upside.

Troy Nolan appears to be that guy with "it" (in this case "it" refers to that uncanny ability to be standing right where the ball decides to bounce) that we've been needing to pair with Pollard.

Pollard is of course another guy with "it" (in his case "it" is the uncanny ability to knock the piss out of somebody at just the right moment).

I'm pretty certain we've got our safeties. Yes, excitement should be tempered but consider this. They're only going to get better. Tomorrow morning Brian Cushing is going to report to work, and we're 3-1, and we apparently just found our ball hawk.

and AJ got some rest...

and Derrick Ward appears to be a nice fit in this offense

and Slaton seems to be finally settling down and looking like his old self.

This is a good way to end Cushing's suspension. We need to be thinking 4-1 now. It's time to go beat the snot out of baby jugghead.

Making the most out of an opportunity like that is how a 7th rounder earns a starting job.

I agree with everything you said, this is almost a best case scenero going into the Giants game, not that I'm looking for anyone to get hurt but da bears are a physical team, so we'll see how they come out of that one.

What was your assessment? Not calling you out, I'm honestly curious. Were you down on the draft pick or down on his play?

I don't know how many tipped passes we create (or the opponents receivers create) but it's really big to have someone who can pick those off. Nolan will get burned a few times, but hell Eugene Wilson got burned all the time. I'd rather get burned with a chance for a pick than get burned with no chance of a turnover

If he was in there last week maybe he catches that pass Eugene dropped and its a whole new ballgame, oh well, I'll take 3-1 and move on.
