    I think its a tad early for the forum to completely quit on White, personally. He's got skills.

      Too much is expected of him. Converted college safety, played 2 full games at will last year and now he's playing mike with zero experience.

      the notre dame kid might be the better mike.

        Sounds good to me, White was great at the Will.

          White will be a very good player. Not sure he is suited for the middle. Seems an ideal Will. But that is where Thomas Davis plays.

            I'm kind of surprised that the Chargers aren't favored by more. The Lions do have a good dline and have invested a lot there the past couple of years in free agency and the draft. My guess is that this will be a stiff test for our oline. Call me a square but I'll throw a bet down on the Chargers as well.

              I thought LAC should be a bigger fav too. Det was a lousy offense last year. I guess our OL v their DL is considered an equalizer. It'll be tough but I'm a coach Lynn fan. I expect him to find an advantage.

                If we are favored by 2 its actually a +5 considering the home team gets +3 by default. +5 in a neutral site like our stadium seems about right to me.

                  We went to OT against a team playing with brisket who is really a good backup quality QB similar to T. Taylor.....

                  biggest issue is this team has shown once again that not playing starters in pre season means we start the =season having no clue how to tackle....... that was also true in most ofd the other games....

                  Colts have a great OL but our talking still sucks like it did last year...... most of our LBers are far too small to stuff the run.....Kiser is a S playing LBer......so is brown..... last year, James who is a huge safety was visually our biggest and strongest defender not playing on the DL...... he also hit harder and tackled better than our LBers who are too small...... Davis was good at stuffing run when he was in there, but he is not SEAU.....or Lewis, he cannot do it all.....

                  when all the teams made their cuts, most teams picked of any players that could help.... still cannot believe there were no OL worth grabbing...... also can't tell me that chargers would not have been better off trading with MIA for Tunsil....... 2 very late number 1's is a small price to play foe a stud young LT......

                  I doubt Okung will ever play again.... his life is too important to risk his health.....

                  Gordon should have been traded...... not for a number 1, that would never happen, but for a solid OL....... that was possible..... and would have helped the team.....

                  I think the backs we have now use their blocking b better than gordon....... and our run blocking is improved.....

                  Remember the chargers team that went too SB?..... no one could run on that team....... even the donkeys who had a 2000 yard rusher would throw on short yardage plays because with Seau and company they would not allow anyone to run...... THAT is what kept us in all those games so we could come back and win in second halves......

                  But if you cannot stop the run it opens up both the run and the pass and wears out your defense sop they end up not being able to stop anything......

                  If the colts had won the toss in OT, they would have won the game...... we could not stop them at all........ imagine what the chiefs or NE will do too us...... I'm not sure we can stop the raiders?

                  We should dominate DET because stafford is a poclket QB who makes bad decisions and is inconsistent with accuracy..... we should be able to pressure him....... but can we stop DET from running???

                    I would like to see Davis phased out...White, Perryman, and Nwosu...with Tranquil developing depth, and Davis experienced depth. If Perryman continues to get nicked up, that's what Tranquil is for.

                    I like Davis, but he is showing his age thus far...need to get Tranquil worked in a bit if Perryman can't go...but I guess he might be nicked up also? Geez...it will sort out eventually...I hope!

                      Fellow Bolt Fans

                      We are one game into a new season. That one game resulted in a WIN. Did we play our best ball? No. It is only game 1. This is the type of game we lost too many seasons in the past.

                      Positives....

                      - OLINE had a great overall game and dominated OT.
                      - RBs looked outstanding
                      ​​​​​​- HH will be a weapon
                      - Kyzir 9 tackles (8solo) & TDavis 14 tackles (7solo)
                      - 1st half D
                      - OT Domination
                      ​​​​​​- overcoming in game obstacles

                      Negatives...

                      - 2nd half D
                      - run lane fills
                      - lack of consistency in QB pressure
                      - no TOs produced by D
                      ​​​​​​- horrible single series by TScott
                      - redzone TO
                      - ST lost TO

                        It is ridiculous that they are playing White at MLB after the promise he showed at the WILL last season. Davis is old and slow. I agree with LoneBolt... Nwosu, Perryman and White... with Tranquill developing and Davis as depth.

                          They beat the Pats last year by 16 at home. And not only is their DL solid, they have 2 really good WR's, a promising TE and a solid running game. This will be no cake walk.
