Dantzler is out against Colts

He has a rib injury, it is just our luck, Rivers will probably have a career game on Sunday

He really struggled Sunday guarding some very mediocre WRs (not Adams). I do like him a lot more than Hughes or Hill and this will slow his growth, so it is shame. Looking forward to seeing what Gladney can do though.

His coverage was pretty good, I thought...just couldn't find the ball. I figured there'd be mistakes, but missing time is almost worse. He needs game reps to get better for the stretch. Now, let the CB carousel begin.

With or without him this defense needs to tighten up a lot this game. Too much money and draft capital invested on that side of the ball for them to play as poorly as they did last Sunday.

Is anyone surprised he was starting over Gladney? Seems like a good thing that Dantzler is good enough in his second game ever as a pro that we’ll miss him.

He is only starting over Gladney because Gladney is hurt

Gladney has been limited with a knee injury.

Thanks for bringing me up to speed. Gladney did have a few minutes last week, correct? I thought I saw him in there. Hope it doesn’t linger too long. Meniscus injuries can be so slow to heal.

I didn’t see the struggle. He was draped on just about every guy when it was thrown his way. For his first career game, I was definitely impressed

Idk if that’s the case. Dantzler impressed in camp from day 1

Dantzler out again vs the Titans. Hughes also out (neck) and Boyd is questionable (hamstring).

Word is the Vikings are in talks with Wobby to come back since he knows the playbook.

Think of this season as a painfully long pre-season... let's evaluate a bunch of young players and see if there are any keepers. We ain't beating anybody with this mess. :hitfan:

I didn’t know Wobby was fired. Any reason given?
