I assume you mean Cedric Benson...why would the Pack be without him?

Try again.

Yeah, Beason, Anderson and Kuechly have been fucking AWFUL. Beason probably isn't at 100% since I doubt most guys coming off a torn Achilles are fully ready within a year. Still, I was expecting a lot more of him than what he's shown so far. Keuchly played well against Atlanta so I'm hoping he can start to turn the corner this season.

You forgot Davis but ya I really was weirded out by them drafting him in the first round since they already have good guys on there but I guess they know what theyre doing? lolol

Ready for the Bengals to hopefully win again this week.

Our offense is so fun to watch and is only getting better. Green gets all the publicity, but lil Hawkins is electric and you never know what trickery we have in store.

Just hope our D keeps improving and gets healthy for the Pitt game in a few weeks.

Davis has been good, but limited because of injury concerns. The reason they drafted Kuechly was to provide insurance for Davis since he is one injury away from his career being over. That and he was the best player available and the team is planning to switch to a 3-4 soon.

Antonio Brown called Boykin a "Snickers". Whatever that means.

Makes sense, looking at how lackluster gillmore and poe have been so far that proved to be the right move

Oh my bad, you said with. He's been very solid as a dependable running option, he hasn't even fumbled yet. Pretty sure he's gotten 100+ all purpose yds in the past two games, that's certainly better than anything Starks or Grant did last year. Even without Jennings we still have Nelson, Cobb, Jones (who's really stepped up this year), Driver and Finley.

I was really surprised that Gilmore went as high as he did. He was kind of underwhelming in most of the South Carolina games I watched. I really wanted us to get Claiborne or Kirkpatrick but the former probably wasn't going to happen unless we traded up. Mark Barron looks like he wouldn't have been a bad pick either.

I completely agree I guess it was more desperation then anything since they didn't want to risk waiting for Jenkins in the second round, kirkpatrick hasn't even played yet from what I know so I have no idea if he'll be worth it yet either. I didn't like Barron at first but I realized he is pretty good as long as they either went with him or Claiborne I thought they'd do alright.

Gilmore will be just fine, he's a rookie and will take a little while to fully develop but he's been getting better every week. His first NFL game, he was thrown on Santonio Holmes a guy that experienced corners struggle to cover.

Most corners struggle in their rookie year. Patrick Peterson was pretty shaky in coverage at first last year, much in the same way that Joe Haden struggled in his rookie year. Gotta give these guys some time to adjust to the speed and physicality of the NFL.

I think Gilmore will be fine in the long-run, I just didn't think he was worth a top-10 pick at the time. He's pretty solid in run support for a corner, though.
