Harrell leads successful 2-minute drill

Posted by Mike Spofford on July 31, 2012 – 4:20 pm

Tuesday’s practice marked the second straight day QB Aaron Rodgers led the first-team offense down the field for a score during the two-minute drill.

A day earlier, backup QB Graham Harrell didn’t get an opportunity with the second unit. On Tuesday, he did, and he succeeded as well.

Needing a touchdown with 1:54 on the clock and two timeouts, Harrell drove the offense 60 yards to paydirt. The big play was a 24-yard completion to TE D.J. Williams on a middle seam route that put the ball in the red zone. Three plays later, Harrell fired a back-shoulder throw to WR Tori Gurley, who was covered tightly by CB Sam Shields. Gurley made the adjustment on the ball, juggled it, and hauled it in as he was falling to the ground for a 10-yard TD with 34 seconds left.

Harrell first showed his cool in those pressure situations last summer in the third preseason game in Indianapolis. As the No. 3 QB, Harrell drove the Packers 73 yards for a TD and 2-point conversion that tied the game with 35 seconds left. He completed seven of nine throws on the drive and threw for the 2-pointer. Following a successful onside kick, he completed two more passes for 20 yards to set up the game-winning FG.

Other camp notes:

–The team practiced 2-point conversion plays for the first time in camp on Tuesday. Last season, the Packers attempted just one two-point play on offense, but had to defend six tries on defense. The Packers went 0-for-1 while their opponents went 4-for-6 in 2011.

–Wednesday will mark the final of six straight 8:15 a.m. practices. Beginning on Thursday, practices will be held either at 7 p.m. (with Friday’s Family Night scrimmage at 6:30 p.m.) or 3:30 p.m. for the next two weeks. Following the second preseason game, practices shift to late morning, beginning at either 11:15 a.m. or 11 a.m.

Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame welcomes one-millionth visitor

Posted by packers.com on July 31, 2012 – 1:04 pm

Karen Lasater of Pound, Wis. became the one-millionth visitor to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame today. She and her four grandchildren, Rachel, Easton, Paige and Payton, were visiting Green Bay to watch Packers Training Camp.

Beyond the celebratory balloons, football cupcake and a custom jersey enshrined with “HOF 1M Fan”, Lasater was surprised when Packers Hall of Fame and Stadium Tour Manager Krissy Zegers presented her with a lifetime membership to the Packers Hall of Fame.
“You’re kidding,” Lasater said. “I never expected any of this to happen today. It’s a good thing I decided to come over here when I did!”

Lasater said that she had been to the Hall before, but it was many years ago when it was located elsewhere. After spending some time out at Nitschke Field with her grandchildren, she wanted them to experience the team history that can be seen while walking through the over 25,000 square feet of Packers artifacts.
Many people did the same last year, as the Hall welcomed more than 156,000 visitors during the 2011-2012 fiscal year.

The group finished their day at Curly’s Pub where President/CEO Mark Murphy made a surprise visit.
