Hey guys I didn't catch the game but I was wondering what the initial impression of the defense was?

First off, Williams, King, Alexander and maybe House didn't play... so outside of Jackson, guys that might be fighting for the last CB spot played... and at times they clearly struggled at CB. A number of people were unhappy with Rollins especially. Though Jackson looked pretty good, outside a very weak holding call by the ref.

I think other top players like Clark, Daniels and Wilkerson also sat and didn't even put pads on.

The defense looked fairly vanilla... like I think they kept it very simply to evaluate players ... I don't think we saw Pettine's scheme tonight. It was only a single player, but rookie draft pick, OLB Kendall Donnerson beat his guy and forced a fumble on a running play which impressed me.

Some said the best part was after giving up a very long drive, and failing to stop them on 4th down... that they finally pulled it together and stopped them on the 5 yard line. It was 1st and goal on the 5 and they forced the field goal.

0 scheme and only like 4 preferred starters so not really much to evaluate as far as "the defense" some individuals really stood out like Josh Jackson, Reggie Gilbert, Montravius Adams and Oren Burks showed some good stuff too.

Not worried about the defense until week 1. That's when we'll see Pettine's scheme.

Not much to see at this point.
Gilbert looked pretty good.
Burks is really fast.
Josh Jones left the field for concussion evaluation.
Rollins looked pretty bad, I doubt he makes the team.
Probably won't be until the 3rd preseason game that we see what our real defense looks like.

Rollins went for the INT on thhe first drive, didn’t get it. Ended up keeping that drive alive by giving up a big play. Other than that, I thouht he was ok.

Donnerson forced a fumble, which Biegel recovered. Other than that, I didn’t notice Biegel was out there.

I don't think you can ever gauge a defense in the pre-season. You can probably gauge individual's a little better than the overall defense. All I am hoping to see (no injuries of course) is solid tackling. Everything else during these next three games I couldn't give a rats ass about.

Individually, there were too many missed tackles and long runs allowed.
And THAT I give a rodents rectum about! LOL

It's looking like the first preseason game.

Browns 4-0 in preseason last year.
Enough said.

Packers played base defense pretty much the whole game.
Come regular season, they will play base less than 20% of the time.

First game all about getting film on individuals, chance to correct mistakes.

Score really doesn't matter, but I came away from the game thinking The Packers bottom 50 were much better than The Titans.

Watched parts of other games and could tell The Packers as a whole are ahead of any team I saw.

No major injuries!!!

Success!

If anything, I saw a lot to be optimistic for on defense. Burks... wow.

He's a year away. Martinez needed a year too. HOpefully that's all that's wrong with Josh Jones.

I was disappointed in Biegel. For most of the game, I thought he was at the hospital having a baby, but then he recovered a fumble forced by Donnerson in the 3rd (or 4th). I mean yeah, maybe Pettine can scheme him open, but I'd still like to see him get home, just by straight up beating his guy.

You just don't get it. Biegel sucks, and always will suck. Lost cause just like Fuckrail.

Fackrell's not bad. He's just not great. Maybe he'll take another step.

I was surprised when he got on the field too. Maybe the baby was born early enough in the day for him to suit up?
