Pff has Amos as the 13'th graded player at the safety position.

Savage is #16.  

HHCD is #17.

 Eddie Jackson is #20.

And who is #1?  A guy that many of us (yours truly included) wanted in free agency, though he was restricted.  Anthony Harris of the Vikings.

Oh, and Earl Thomas is #8.

And Savage is only a rookie... he will get much better.

(DVOA adjusts for opponents and doesn't need that qualifier)

But coming into the season, there would be a riot if you called them bad QBs. Bears fans swore Trubisky was ready to take a big step and Vikings swore Cousins was going to be worth that deal. Are they top end? Of course not, but they are both at least on the high side of league average.

Pff has Trubisky at #32.  Cousins at #32.  They haven't been "bad" this year, they've been terrible.

There were a few whispers out there about Trubisky being a dark horse candidate for MVP.  He's been awful, and I couldn't be happier.  Most people have always felt Cousins was awful, but he had been good against us until this past Sunday.  Our old porous defense made all qb's look good.  It's nice having a quality defense.

Each of them has played a game against the 2nd ranked D in ppg.  Tough sledding for them both

Go to the Bears page.  There's a thread about Trubisky.  A writer actually breaks down the entire first half pass plays from last week.  Guys were wide open and Mitch just wasn't finding them.

Yes the Packers D showed up big in that Bears game.  But....Mitch may have actually regressed this year and it is concerning for that fan base.

Imagine how Cousins would rank if Alexander gets his two INTs last game?  Or just the long INT that would have taken away a TD and added an INT.

Not sure if that stat/ranking is YTD or not, but these things havent happened in a vacuum. Our defense was on the field contributing to their performance.

This prompted me to go check the bears and Vikings forum for the Packers "update" threads. Lol. They aren't posted in so often the last couple weeks. Weird!

Surprised they don't have a "Zippy Zany Zebra's: Referee Updates" Thread for how much holding and pass interference we get away with.

#2 PFF ranked Defensive Lineman!  Behind Grady Jarrett.  What do they have in common?

Was gonna say contract year, but Jarrett just got paid this offseason. They both wear 97?
