Yeah all things considered the Packers 2nd team defense played pretty good against the Titans. Sure they ran all over them but a lot of that was Vince Young.

One series for the defensive starters and four guys didn't play at all anyways.

One play for the offensive starters. Grant didn't even see a single carry.

Can't take much from the starters on this one.

Thanks I needed to hear that.

Yeah..Dont worry too much. It was the Packer second string offense against the Titans first string defense that was putting up the ugly offensive numbers. Just something to keep in mind.

Did you guys see the run by our punter Ryan???
I couldn't believe how fast that kid is! Usually punters are pretty slow....but he took off and impressed me with his speed!

I think Ryan is better than Grant. Look at the two times we've seen him run.

The only runner I've ever seen better than Ryan is Barry Sanders.

We should have Donald Driver as our punter, Ryan as our #1 RB, Grant as #2, and Jackson as #3.

I don't know........anytime i saw Favre run, it looked like he was running in slow motion!!! :pottytrain1:
I think he would have run around in the "pocket", waited for someone to get open, and throw a 50 yard bomb. :thumbleft:

Got a question for those of you who saw the game on TV. The final 2 point conversion attempt was ruled out of bounds. The replay on the Tundervision sure looked like he was in.
Did anyone mention why there was no review of the play?
We figured no one wanted injuries in an overtime preseason game.
Did they not think he was forced out?

Now I haven't seen it so I'm only speculating here, but the 'force out' rule is no longer in effect in 2008. The only penalty is if the defensive player carries the offensive player out of bounds. Otherwise, they need both feet inbounds.
