    I was embarrassed watching the safeties come up to tackle, especially against TJ Duckett. Yes, the man is large, but HIT him! It seemed like the safeties were coming up to tackle with thier eyes closed and scared. Lets hope Harrison can get back on the field and instill a sense of toughness into these young players.

    Not only is it preseason, Harrison and Tubucky are missles. Duckett also did well against a no name crew in the second half. Since when do you judge your defense when the 2-3rd string is playing a valid nfl starter? (Dunn starts, but Duckett would start on many teams)

    Since when is pre-season an excuse for playing WITHOUT aggressiveness and intensity? Or an excuse for not trying to make contact? You are missing the point. These guys are trying to make the team!

    Not to mention, we are trying to groom Harrisons replacement, and Tebucky is essentially a special teamer.

    If the safeties are doing all the tackling on runs up the gut you're ph***ed anyway.
