    I’m surprised, it looks like Dangerfield has passed Golden on the depth chart? He took the 1-2 snaps missed by both Mitchell and Davis.

  • srdan

    Agreed, especially because it has been said that golden is our best tackler, adn they play the big nickle to stop the run.

    I bet it has more to do with the injury.

    But who knows, maybe he has totally surpassed him.

  • Keith Froehlich

    Nix was off the field most of the night. Hubbard only saw three snaps.

    How on Earth did LeVeon Bell survive without them?

  • steelburg

    I think like you said it has more to do with Golden missing time with his injury.

  • S.T.

    So, outside of Tuitt and Gravedigger, LT Walton was on the field for only 40% of the snaps. I know we have LBs who spend a lot of time playing up front, but that means that we only had 3 D linemen on the field 40% of the time. Crazy.
