Davon House out on the perimeter.

Chris Banjo at safety.

Jerron McMillian covering the slot in dime.

The Green Bay Packers experimented with several combinations of players in the secondary this past Sunday, particularly in the second half after they had already built up a 31-0 lead.

Experimentation is a good thing, but it seems to me that Tramon Williams in the slot takes our best cover-in-space guy away from where the other team's best WR usually is, and it puts Williams in a position better suited for a bigger more physical DB. If House is tough enough to be a gunner, he would seem to be a better slot man until Hayward gets back. I like the idea of giving Banjo a chance, but the jury is still out on whether he has the speed and skills for the job.

Hopefully we can outscore Cincinnati this week, and then get Hayward and Burnett back after the bye.

He keeps saying Tramon doesn't have experience in the slot but he was our slot corner for a few years until Al Harris got hurt in I think it was 2009.

Other than saying House came in for Shields on a series they don't even mention Samwise at all. Strange.

Because his spot is secure, and he would not seem at all suited for the slot job. Of course, I'd say the same about Tramon.

I don't think this is a sign of who is going to play where. More just using time available to get players more experience at more positions. The more they know the responsibilities of other positions, the better they should be able to adjust to offenses.

Tramon should be able to play the slot incase we want to match him up against a WR that primarily plays the slot. We may want House matched up against a taller receiver because of his height and length so we want him to know different positions as well.

When we were best as a secondary, we could line up and press 5 wide without worry. We don't have that anymore. The more gametime experience they can get across the board the better.

No way House could play the slot. He's def an outside guy.

Too big and lanky. Not necessarily quick enough.

SF played Boldin in the slot quite a bit and we matched Tramon on him.

uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
