+ One of the observations by visiting ESPN writer James Walker is how hard the defense is hitting.
The unit was very physical, and I saw at least three noticeable hits by safety Gibril Wilson and linebackers Keith Rivers and Brandon Johnson.

"We seem to have good retention from (organized team activities) and last year in what we're trying to get done," Zimmer said. "Last night I forgot to put a check in and they made the check from the OTAs. There's been some good carryover."
Favre struggled early but had enough magic to earn his first NFL come-from-behind victory, throwing two touchdowns late in the final period to help the Packers topple the Bengals, 24-23.

"I'll never forget it," said (Paul) Anderson, who coaches Bengals running backs. "We were playing Cover 2, and the next thing you know, it was big plays and they came back and won the game. We turned the ball over at a crucial time and that was it.
