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.
