By way of analysis, I'll hit the high points for each major position grouping.
I've obviously readjusted the quarterback depth chart to take into account our new reality.
The other changes are adding Hilgers to the third team at wide receiver — since he saw some time late, along with Weber and West — and the same with Bergstrom, who backed up Johnson at left guard in Stiverson's absence.
The entire two-deep played Saturday and things pretty much fell into place as they were projected on paper.
The exception was in the secondary, which was thrown into flux by Danzel McDaniel's
injury suspension thing, forcing a move of Jackson to cornerback. Barry appeared to fill the backup spot behind Starks vacated by Jackson.
Also, for some reason, Jesse Mack jumped Ryan Mack for playing time as a backup cornerback, or at least it appeared that way to me. I only saw Ryan Mack on special teams, but I left him as the primary backup for now.
I didn't adjust a single thing here, and barring an unexpected injury, I don't plan to for the rest of the season.
What are your thoughts on the second depth chart of the season? Let's get some discussion going in the comments!
