Making the Special Teams Special: Part 1 Arrow Pointing UP

  2 years ago     108 Views     2 Comments  

At the end of last season, there was a lot of talk of how the Packers special teams let us down. There was then a lot of action on the part of the Packers staff in letting Shawn Slocum go, making sure the head coach was in on the special teams meetings, and drafting versatile players who are likely to contribute to that group. With OTA's happening now and Training Camp on the way, it is time to take a closer look at the Packers' special teams and identify the good, the bad, and the ugly. Today we are going…

A.M. Quickslant: Packers OTA’s Are About The Team

  2 years ago     105 Views     1 Comment  

Well, supposedly Adrian Peterson is expected back with the Vikings at OTA's today. Big whoop! You mean he will be doing what he should be doing as a player, team-mate and (supposedly) leader? I just can't believe that a guy gets in legal trouble, takes a year off, and then comes back wanting to have his contract revamped. I am so happy to be a Packers fan, where more or less the OTA's are about making the team better.  (more…)

Mike McCarthy addressed the media today after OTA's and I gotta say I, while there was not a whole lot of information about individual players, I really liked what I heard. First of all, McCarthy made it a point to express that he is enjoying himself. In response to a question about his more active role in the special teams unit, he responded, "Coaching is still coaching regardless of what position you work with. Coaching is where I want to be...This has been a very fun year." This is important for two reasons: It shows me that McCarthy has left behind the…

UDFA First Take: Javess Blue, WR – Kentucky

  2 years ago     138 Views     2 Comments  

Javess Blue, the wide receiver out of Kentucky comes in at 6' and 188 lbs., posted a 4.56-40 yard dash, has a 33" vertical, 10'1" broad jump, but only had 29 catches for 525 yds and 5 TD's. While he does not look like much he seems to have the speed and hands to make it as a slot receiver, but what I like about his video is when he said he was a corner before changing positions and when he was he was good at it, Hmmm does Mike have ideas running through his head? Check out the video…
