Well, I don't think Jason Witten is afraid of anybody, but Hawk sure has been fun to watch. At least Ohio State is good for something.

I agree with others that the coaches are using him better this year, and that probably has a lot to do with his success. It also helps that our defensive starters are all the same guys as last year. A.J. knows what his teammates are going to do, so he can rely on his instincts more. He's making the kinds of big plays he used to make all the time in college.

It's only his third season. I think Hawk was rock solid the last two years. He did lead the team in tackles in 06 and last year Barnett was all over the place so I believe that effected Hawk a little.

I also think the coaching staff had trouble figuring out what to do with Hawk. Blitz him or use him in coverage?

This year he's being used in the blitz more and more and it's working. 2 sacks last week and he's also been freed up much more. If Barnett picks up his plays and Hawk sustains his, GB has the best linebacker duo in the league in my opinion.

Ahead of Chicago.

I wore my new #50 jersey for the game against the Lions. It was a good choice Wink

It took Barnett to his what, 3rd or 4th season to really start to shine and play like an all-pro, i mean he was decent before but he's really come on strong as of recently. I can see the same happening with hawk. He's looked awesome so far, and the LB's in general look great this year.

I saw the HAWK play against Notre Dame at the Fiesta Bowl in a Free Sky Box...HAWK ate Brady Quinn for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. He was all over the field ...could not be stopped/blocked...he looked like Urlacher.
I thought he would bring that with him to the Pros...Sorry to say...I have been disapointed in his play. Maybe the hair slows him down...just kidding.
The one play I saw the other night...Hawk came flying out of no where and laid some serious WOOD! If he brings that...look out for SB number 4!
