some notes from a packer beat writer
To be fair, Harrell got little to no help from his receivers or his offensive line.
This team has a LOT of good, young talent in the secondary – but it is raw as hell.
Jordy Nelson is the man. Randall Cobb officially has ball security issues.
Alex Green played nearly a flawless game, save for two snaps. He missed a read on his initial run and whiffed badly on a third down blitz pickup – but other than that he looked good.
It's only preseason – but this team can't stop the run unless they call a run blitz. That's concerning.
Charles Woodson is a ninja. D.J. Smith looked good, and the best part? He's going to get better.
The 10 yard cushion that the corners constantly give opposing receivers just baffles me.
McCarthy calling a timeout with a minute left – guy wants every rep he can get.
Never a good sign when Aaron Rodgers has to remind the ref that the clock should stop after a kickoff.
Just remember, none of this means anything.

Very optimistic with all the nice additions in the offseason but, at this time, worried about the pass rush situation. Aldon and Ahmad are injured and the team is quite thin as far as backups are concerned. The effectiveness of our defense last year (compared to the years before) rested a lot on the finally effective pass rush. If Aldon, who had a bad offseason personnally, is not at last year's level, our secondary may be exposed. Other than that, very optimistic !
Go Niners !
