11/19/14 - Defensive coordinator Bill Davis admitted that he came close to benching cornerback Bradley Fletcher in the first half of Sunday's 53-20 loss to the Packers. Fletcher was targeted 13 times by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He gave up eight completions for 169 yards and two touchdowns.
Much of the damage came in the first half, but Davis said Fletcher played much better in the second half.
"I kept a really close eye (on him) because he had a bad start and it wasn't going well," Davis said. "And a lot of corners have a lot of outs. They don't keep fighting and battling. I've got a lot of respect for Fletch and how he responded.
"I was watching him close (and thinking), 'Wait one more? What do I do? Do I make a move?' then you watched him come out and play I the second half and he made those same plays that beat him in the first half. He was on it. He played the ball. His press was better. He got better and fought through it. He's a mentally tough human being and I was very impressed with the way he finished."
