Star Studded 'Hump Day' at Packers Training Camp
It was hump day of the practice week and faces in the crowd included former Packers GM Ron Wolf, John Madden and Commissioner Roger Goodell. After an off-season of suspensions and concussions, the commissioner is now looking at starting the season without a labor agreement with officials. The league is already training Arena League and D-2 refs as replacements. Stay Tuned.
What we liked:
-The overall intensity of the defense. If you were to name a winner in today's practice, It was that side of the ball.
-The cornerbacks getting more physical. Coach Joe Whitt has been harping on it and the guys are listening. There's no "live" tackling but Davon House was in perfect position and put a good lick on D. J. Williams in the open field.
-The kickoff coverage of rookie free agent linebacker Dezman Moses.
What we didn't like:
-The way Greg Jennings' head hit the ground after getting tossed down by House after a catch. He was able to continue practicing.
-A flat-out dropped pass by James Starks, no extenuating circumstances.
-The one-sidedness of the OLB/RB's 1 on 1 blitz drill. The defense should win the majority, but not the far majority.
Quote of the Day:
"Attitude and tempo make up for a lot of mess-ups."
