Gano, Gettis - for all the reasons already stated. AJ - he may not be Luke 2.0 but he seems to have good 'football intelligence' and is always around the ball. Berner commented in an interview that Luke is calling out the offensive plays before the ball is snapped. AJ may be that type of LB.
Not Fallers but Not Impressive -
Shula - Looks like the same, vanilla playcalling that got him axed from TB. Doesn't create mismatches, loads the box for the run, and not putting the defense ... on the defense. I know it is preseason and everything that is already said. However, at this point, it waddles and quacks like a duck. We can only hope that once the handcuffs come off in September, he will utilize his weapons and keep the defense guessing. With the WRs looking decent, our offense has the potential to be explosive.
Star - Gulp .... You cannot look at the scores during preseason but you can look at individual battles. Star is getting handled ... easily. Little explosion and goes vertical as soon as he makes contact. Losing one on one matchups. Not even plugging the middle as he gets little separation and RBs are running right by him. On the bright side, there is plenty of separation when the RB gets past him. Not giving up on him but he has not been the dominant inside force that we need.
