  • Some good some not so good...but considering who he was up against I see some potential.

  • I thought he did an excellent job considering it was his first game and against the Pack @ Lambeau. Really impressed he got his head turned around a couple times and made some PBUs. Got beat short a few times but Rodgers didn't pick on him as much as some of us feared. Bright future ahead of him!

  • The entire d played very well.

    Green Bay scored on a rushed play and a fumble thats it.

  • He played good and bad....

    I like the fact he usually gets his head turned around fairly quickly.
    Something Lane and Shead rarely do.

  • I think the kid will be very solid-even this year. His pure speed and instinct are good. There were a couple misplayed instances but like others said, he turns his head around and generally has himself in position to make a play on the ball. He's got a bright future.

  • He had a tough assignment...covered Jordy Nelson for most of the game. He handled it well. He was definitely one of the bright spots in the game today.

    Not many DBs can stop a timed random 5 yard curl or quick slant from Rodgers when playing man coverage. As long as the tackle is made right after, it is acceptable. He played like a seasoned veteran his first game, great start.

    That guy can flat out play! Started most of the game and got 10 tackles. That guy is going to the Pro Bowl someday. He is better now than Randall, Rollins or House. He would be an instant contributor and starter in Green Bay right now.

    Man, do I wish we had drafted that guy.

  • Griffin played great considering being thrown to the wolves by a terrible call by the refs. His footwork, speed and timing looked great in coverage.

    Hopefully it will happen. Green Bay has top shelf wide receivers and Rodgers is the best in the league. Remember this was at Lambeau also.

  • Getting suddenly thrust into the starting lineup in week 1 on the road and then being picked on repeatedly by Aaron Rodgers is an insane challenge for a professional debut. Considering all that, he easily gets an "A" for today. He got beat a few times, but it'd be unreasonable to have expected better.

  • Hard to ask for much more from a rookie playing a role he wasn't expected to fill. A couple mistakes, but as a whole played smart, made some nice plays, and looked really good.

    I really wouldn't be shocked to see Lane return to the nickel and Griffin play opposite Sherm at some point this season.

  • I think he will grade out very well. First start against great QB and receiver. I couldn't expect any more. Lane or Shead would not have been better. Guy is going to be somebody by mid year.

  • Yeah, he couldnt have done much more. He played about as well as a rookie could have against that team.

  • Seriously excited about him, he will be our starter at RCBvery soon I think, considerably better than Lane.

    I can't remember if Shead can play nickel? Anyone?

  • I felt he played great. McCarthy lined up Nelson on him all day as I anticipated in an earlier thread. The longest completion he allowed was 13 yards.

    Sure tackling and physical.

    But more to the point, I saw him on several occasions show the ability to not just keep a guy covered, but to make plays on the ball. That's a key element in his development and something I didn't see him yet do in the preseason. I think he's developing much more quickly than I thought he might.

    Matched up against a HOF QB and a pro bowl receiver, he more than held his own. And if Seattle could have mustered any semblance of points for a win, we'd be talking about how Griffin was a key reason we won. As it is, he's a key reason we didn't lose by 20+.

    It's pretty clear this cat is special. We can easily absorb the growing 'pains' if this past week was any indication.

    In the end, I'm more bullish on Griffin after yesterday than I was going into the season. And I was pretty high on him then. He's going to be a key contributor for us this year. It seems pretty obvious at this early stage.

  • I agree with everyone else, he played really well. I don't think there was really any drop off from what we would have saw out of Lane and that's really impressive considering it was only the kids first game.
