I didn't pay attention, but someone said M.D. Jennings started? Why? Why not start Sean Richardson? The guy has a nose for the ballcarrier which is proven by his two tackle for losses today.

I like him from what I've seen and I want to see more of him. The view I seen of the TD, it didn't look like it was because of poor coverage by him.

MD Jennings has played awful. Just, awful. I can't imagine how he remains on this roster.

I haven't seen it as much recently but in the past I've seen Jennings have very good to great position in coverage, though there have been a number of times he's been in great position and still wasn't able to make a play on the ball.


And I think Richardson has some weakness, but against the Steelers who get behind having a big back run the ball... I don't understand why they didn't have Richardson in there to start with. Richardson should always be in there if the other team has a strong power back in the game. Or at least that's my opinion.

What I can't understand is why we keep going into these seasons with an obvious hole in the lineup and not have a veteran free agent in there as at worst, a backup.

Ted's done that in the past, with Mark Roman and Marquand Manuel. Anthony Smith. Guys like that.

Big story in this season was the lack of development of guys like BJ Coleman and Jerron McMillian.

The D looked a bit better with Richardson and Lattimore in there. Though I bet next week we will see MD Jennings out there starting again until he screws up enough to get benched for the 4th or 5th straight game in the 1st quarter.

He's a good run defender, but that TD he gave up was pretty bad. Seems like he just froze a bit. If he cleans up his coverage I think he could be legit.

Pretty good run defender is better than anything MD does.

MD can't defend run or pass

WHAT do you guys see in Sean Richardson? Granted, Jennings has mostly played like shit, but it seems like Richardson misses tackles more than he should too, and on his best day, he's a liability in coverage.

The Packers do need a new safety going into next season - either a high draft pick or a mid-level free agent or maybe Hyde switched there. I would even consider moving Tramon Williams to safety - his still decent coverage ability outweighing any size deficiency.

As bad as Jennings has been, Brad Jones has been just as bad and B.J. Raji a LOT worse. Why no clamoring for Lattimore to replace Jones and Daniels or Boyd or some cheerleader to replace Raji?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, they really need to sit Richardson for the rest of the season so he doesn't get "nerve damage" to his neck - ironically, a REAL concern, unlike with Rodgers.
