Remember last season when our defensive backfield couldn’t stop anybody? I don’t know about you but I have a feeling, after watching the Titans game, that this season will be different in that regard. I loved how Ha Ha played in the Titans game…sure, he missed a tackle but he also was disruptive back there, broke up a pass and hammered the ball out of a receiver’s hands. This guy got tested…and it looked like he liked it!
I think with Hyde playing well and Morgan Burnette dinged up, Ha Ha will get significant time to prove that he belongs on the field…A LOT! I liked seeing him cover ground and make plays. He seemed just like that prototypical “center fielder” that the Packers need. The question will be whether he is sound and instinctive when the season rolls around and teams are not so vanilla.
I believe in this kid…there, I said it. Remember, Ha Ha was the one who, when picked by the Packers at number 21, had to be asked if he was excited (he responded “Yes” of course) because he was just so quiet and low-key. Cut to the Titans game and you see Ha Ha making plays, getting up, signalling “Oh no you di-int!” and then going back to play another down. The guy lets his play do the talking and he seems to expect to be great…I love that!
Of course, this kid has a long way to go before he fills a number 21 jersey like a certain Charles Woodson did awhile back. But if he keeps working, learning, and keeps up the quietly confident attitude…he may be just the right fit for the Green Bay Packers.
But what do you think?…about Ha Ha…about the defensive backfield? Let me know in the comments below.
