That for 3 straight preseason games, Kenny Vaccaro has been at the top of list for tackles, the only person that had more was Humber in the raiders game

Vaccaro came off the field with a bloodied face and was laughing after he layed out the texans RB, i didnt know what to think when we drafted but I think we made the right decision. Can't wait to see him in the regular season

Lofton and humber will be good in the middle, both tackling machines and I like our D line

Only thing i'm a little concerned with is our secondary, Jenkins missed a shed load of tackles, P - Rob actually played well but andre schooled Keenan lewis

It was just a shame that SP couldnt trust the O line and drew got pulled after 2 drives but it wss probably for the best

Im not concerned at all about the secondary, but I am concerned about the injuries to the OLB's. Vaccaro is gonna be a star, I loved the bloody nose look.

Lewis will get it together, I have faith. Patrick Robinson had a nice pass break up and I don't remember him giving up anything big last night, perhaps he'll finally step it up this year?

Unfortunately, it's rarely a positive thing when a safety leads the team in tackles.

Only thing I would change would be Humber and Lofton, I agree they are tackling machines but Lofton is showing repeatedly he cannot play the pass, Humber didn't play the pass well yesterday but I do feel he has the ability.
I would go with Hawthorn and Humber. We still need a beast for the middle.

I think too much is being made about that crossing pattern. Humber and Lewis both stayed on one receiver while the other broke free uncovered. We really don't know who was supposed to cover who. It looked more like coverage confusion than a lack of coverage skills by Humber.

Re: Has anyone noticed?

You can't really tell much about the defense other than some individual efforts. Some of which have been outstanding, i.e. KV. Ryan is playing it for evals and we can only hope its decent come opening day.

Re: Has anyone noticed?

Vaccaro will be the best #1 pick we had since a long time.
For way too long our defense has been marginal to awful. In that time we failed at the draft picking offensive stars when we truly needed balance on defense.
