Last season I was disappointed in the overall play of Hawk.. for a #5 pick I think he underplayed that high of a draft slot.. I mean that he was solid and steady but really didn't have the impact that one would assume he would have.

But so far this season.. even a little nicked up.. the kid is playing at a different level.. intensity is up and he seems to be a step ahead an instinctive instead of reactive.. of all the players on the defense so far this season, I am impressed with his play.

Your thoughts?

I agree 100 percent. He seems to be in on every play. And that sack he had last week where he jumped over that dude was awesome

Different schemes. I think our DC finally took his head out of his you know where and realized that we'll need to generate pressure against top tier teams to win games.

So we're finally utilizing Hawk's talents. Opposing O's don't know whether he's going to stay back in coverage or blitz the QB. I like how Hawk is utilized much better this year than last.

Where he jumped over the FB or OL whomever and sacked Kitna, priceless. He looked like a giant, HAWK! It was great.

I think he played very solid last season for a rookie trying to mend his game to the Pro Level.

This year you are right though, he has stepped it up to a monster level so far. heres to more diving sacks.

I agree. He has been a standout player this year, and in my opinion, is playing FAR better then Barnett so far (my favorite Packer).

Barnett has been getting sucked in the play action fakes and not getting off blockers quick enough these past two games. I'm not worried about him though, he'll shape up.

But yeah, A.J. Hawk. Star of our defense so far this season (sorry Woodson!)

At the game vs the Vikings every once and a while they played the call of a Hawk in the stadium

I think he is the fastest guy the packers have had on defense in quite some time. I wonder if GB will have him matched up against witten on sunday.

I'm sure we'll see Hawk make Witton not want to go up the middle.
