Love Larry McCarren: Love the New Coaching Staff Roles

  2 years ago     128 Views     1 Comment  

Larry McCarren did a nice breakdown of a play (well, plays) that the Packers made against the Patriots that built off each other. The play illustrated the way a coaching staff sequences plays during a game to gain an advantage. The Packers sent Adams and Cobb on crossing routes early in the first series. Later, they gave the defense the same look but instead of crossing Adams and Cobb, they had them split, causing the defender over the top to bite. The play went to Cobb for 18 yards. (more…)

But Family Night was serious business for us here at GPN, because we got to watch the development of some players we've had our eyes on. Here are three takeaways from the practice. (more…)

A Very Congested Camp: 3 Tiers of Wide Receiver

  2 years ago     98 Views     Leave your thoughts  

The Packers strength at wide receiver, and the addition of another slew of wide receivers in this year and last year's draft has created a very congested camp at the postion. We all know who the top three will be unless something miraculous happens...Nelson, Cobb, and Adams. But after that, the picture gets fuzzy with Jeff Janis back, Jared Abbrederis expecting to be full speed, Myles White, Ty Montgomery, and¬†five¬†undrafted free agents who could prove to be more than just camp legs.
