Thank Ted Thompson for Packers Depth
Besides making the most courageous decision in Packers history a few years back, give Ted Thompson credit for the depth on this football team. A few examples, Sam Shields looks doubtful for the Rams.
Who to start at corner, how bout Casey Hayward. Who has three interceptions in the last two games. Who replaces Hayward as the dime back? How bout Davon House, who was the starter at corner before getting hurt.
B-j raji misses the entire Texan game, DJ Smith, the guy filling in for Desmond Bishop at inside linebacker, misses most of it, and yet the Packers defense plays its best game of the season.
On the other side of the ball, Cedric Benson goes down but Alex Green looks like a keeper at running back and let's not forget the absence of pro bowl receiver Greg Jennings.
Instead of being threatless in Houston, Jordy Nelson has three touchdown catches and James Jones two. Talk about deep, that's about as deep as you get in the NFL.
