Re: Jean Baptiste

I think he's probably right where the coaches expected him to be. That's my .02

Re: Jean Baptiste

After watching the game today, for the most part he was in position and made good reads. Didn't do anything detrimental

Re: Jean Baptiste

I thought he played OK against the Titans. Got beat a couple times in the middle of the field but the defense as a whole played poorly so you can't really single him out.

I did see him come up in run support a couple times and he tackles well, so that's a good sign.

Re: Jean Baptiste

I saw the run support on one play but so far in coverage he's looked pretty bad.

Bad as in looking the opposite way of where the play is happening.

I agree. At the same time, he's a rookie and it's his second preseason game. We have plenty of depth. At best, he's our dime back. All we really should be expecting of him this season is good play on special teams. Anything extra would be just gravy.

That is unless Lewis's injury becomes nagging. How do you feel about Robinson, White, Baily and Jean Baptiste on the field? Do we know what happened to Lewis? Looked like turf toe...

Re: Jean Baptiste

I think we'll see more safeties on the field if something like that occurs. I think worse case scenario with Lewis is that he misses a game or two. I hope it isn't anything serious.
