    The Bud Dupree haters said he was going to be better than Bud, I know he had the groin injury, but they need more out of him.

    He’s the invisible man.
    0- sacks after four games. I know he missed a game, but he’s been a huge disappointment thus far.

    He simply isn't healthy. It doesn't help that there is very little pressure from the defensive line, which makes it harder for the outside guys to get to the quarterback.

    I get that, but if you’re on the field fans are going to expect you to produce.

    Green Bay did a good job of chipping Highsmith and Watt.

    That is what coaching can do when they plan on taking away some of the defenses strengths and exploiting our weaknesses.

    I wonder how many teams will take notice after today's game.

    Once you take away the pass rush from outside, it's a whole different game.

    It's easy to do when the push inside is missing. That's where losing both Alualu and Tuitt is a killer for the defense.

    That's true but I did notice almost everyone on offense that's not named Aaron Rodgers helped out with blocking.

    Honestly I'm wondering if he's completely done with football altogether.

    And holding, on the no call tripping Watt was straight up bear hugged. On at least another cutback you can see him in a head lock with no call.

    He probably shouldn't have been on the field.

    He played better his rookie year. Victim of Tomlinism 101.

    I would get rid of him so fast his head would be spinning.

    I'd like to see Tuitt back then you would see better volume out of Highsmith.

    I don't think Wormley is scaring anybody.

    But you wonder if he has the sophomore slump. He did have the groin issue too.

    Schoebert is better, but Bush started to show some progress yesterday. He looked faster and made a couple of plays in coverage. The problem is he's not big and strong enough to be as effective when the line is getting pushed around.

    Well he is this season, even with the groin injury. Yes no sacks, but quite a few tackles.
