The good news about Bush being out is this gives the coaches and fans a chance to see if others can step up and handle his ST duties as well as he does. If so he is gone next year. He may be gone any way and this gives his replacement some extra reps. If they can't then fans screaming that Bush isn't worth the roster spot and that he doesn't bring anything to the team but playing on special teams will learn a little about life in the NFL.

He didn't play last week did he?

I think I remember seeing House playing pretty damn well on special teams.

I'm not too torn on him being out cause of the Corner depth on this team. Hayward has been hurting though.

I can't say when House started playing ST gunner. I only caught part of the game. GB was up by so much I didn't concentrate on kick coverage.

House is actually leading the NFL in ST tackles at the moment.

Not having Burnett this week is REALLY going to hurt. Last week was an exception.

I think it really hurt when Burnett had been scheduled to play against the 49'rs and the injury reared up. They were not ready for that.
This is not a position you can just plug another guy in because it happens to be one that is in charge of making calls back there. At least now there has been a couple of games to get the communication side of it fixed.

It sucks that Burnett is out but I think our DB's will be more on the same page now.

I mentioned in a thread after the 49r game that I would like to see more man coverage vs. our best cover guys (being CB's) letting WR's run by them supposedly to be picked up by a DB.

We saw more of this last week and looked a whole lot better until we got up like 31 to nuttin and kind of put it on cruise there. At least I saw some tight coverage underneath and some balls batted away and that was a welcomed sight.

I can't stand watching our best cover corners letting WR's run by them and the QB getting the ball out before the DB can get there. We just don't do that very well.
