Green Bay - Don't be surprised if you see more of S Chris Banjo this week.


Good to hear. I wanted both McMillian and Jennings to take it up a notch this year but both have blown their chances. Jennings at best looks like a backup and McMillian disappoints after all the shit-talking he did in TC. Banjo may not be a long term answer or starter but he ain't afraid to hit either.

I have been very disappointed in the safety play. Thought one of those guys would win the competition in camp this year. The coaches you could tell were disappointed too.

Banjo gets his shot.

Next year, it's gonna be the Micah Hyde show. Wouldn't shock me to see them working him in this year either.

Maybe Hyde gets worked into the safety rotation once Hayward returns. CB is suddenly a very crowded position.

Banjo looked pretty bad on the couple of plays I saw him out there. he looked a little lost. Fell down on one play when the receiver made his move.

I know Jennings started up with a couple of poor showings but he seems to have fix most of them lately and hasn't bothered me that much with his mistakes lately.

But Banjo does have the potential to pass him, he quicker to attack and faster at doing it. Which as long as he doesn't bite too hard on fakes is a great thing. I'd say he's still too raw to be the full time starter (yet) but if he becomes more consistent he could earn that job before the year is over.


But overall I'd say, I'M SO HAPPY that Burnett is back to his natural spot of SS where I think he's a lot better at.

Honestly I'd say McMillian is more of a CB than a S at this point, he struggles a lot with off man coverage. How can anyone be a good S while struggling with off man coverage?


Also the article seems to assume McMillian playing more against the Vikings means less Hyde... but in theory they could have both Hyde and McMillian in there for the dime on the inside instead of Williams.


As for Hyde at S... I don't know if he'd be a natural fit at FS... I could see Hyde as a SS, but they have Burnett there now (which again I think is he's natural position in the NFL).

I still wonder if Williams will finish his contract in GB or not... IF Shields, Hayward, House and Hyde all play well, they might ask William to take a cut or maybe more on... of course Hayward hasn't been healthy, as well as House and Hyde have been a bit up and down...

Having Burnett back at full game speed is a huge boon for Capers. Let's him use the other safeties in aggresive ways, versus just trying to survive like they were the first few weeks without Burnett. Banjo will be a nice piece of the puzzle. LB and DB depth is turning into a plus versus what it looked like when they weren't all available.
