Its no surprise that a mid round pick from last year is improving.
I don't think we took three minutes...

And from what we heard earlier in camp, it wasn't that Jenkins was playing bad, it was that Davison was flat dominating.

From early reports Jenkins was doing just fine until he got hurt.

We may have some serious depth at DT. Hadn't heard that in quite a while.

Re: Davison takes over as starter at NT

I think everything starts up front - even the DB coverage.
We have suffered greatly from not being able to stop the run...
or rush the passer...or cover the middle of the field...
IMO because we couldn't get it done up front.
Up til now, runners didn't have to bounce it outside.
They could actually run between the tackles for 5-8.
2nd and 3 is so much harder to defend than 2nd and 9.
I saw guys getting after the ball Friday night that actually had speed to the ball.
Man! that was refreshing.
If we are successful clogging the middle and force teams into 2nd/3rd and long,
then we have the advantage and the opportunity for our guys to make plays.
I saw several missed opportunities for turnovers that I'm hoping materialize going forward.
Now we just have to figure out how to stay disciplined against the cut-back.
