Worthy savors the moment

Posted by Mike Spofford on August 3, 2012 – 11:34 pm

Rookie DL Jerel Worthy, drafted in the second round from Michigan State, said Friday night that when he headed out onto Lambeau Field for the Family Night scrimmage, it was his first time heading down the tunnel to the field. He had intentionally not done so previously so he could savor the moment.

“I tried to save it for as long as possible, and I kind of got a little emotional being out there, like my dream is finally coming true,” Worthy said. “I’m just excited to be here.”

Worthy made one notable play in the scrimmage, stuffing RB Du’ane Bennett for a 5-yard loss when he charged across the line of scrimmage unblocked. The play helped the No. 1 defense hold the No. 2 offense to a field goal on what had been a promising drive.

“My guard pulled, and I got a good jump on the ball,” Worthy said of the play, which was typical of the disruptive plays he made in college. “As soon as he pulled and vacated my area, I just came off the back side and came wide open. Hopefully I can get as many plays like that as possible.”

    Love this guy!
    He could be Warren Sapp for us, minus the dirty, selfish attitude. And bad hairdo.

    He is the type of player I think will fit in perfectly with our core guys on D. We have for years been missing someone who plays like him. While we do have some great players, we haven’t had on defense a naturally energetic “Big Kid” who also has “it” factor. I love this guy. He has this “I am just a kid having fun” who also happens to be a stud on the field. He will give us fits with offsides and give up some plays, but I have a hunch he will also make some big time plays at big times during games. And he is good kid, won’t be into trouble off field. He has DifferenceMaker Written ALL OVER HIM. Playing next to Raji…Yeah boy !!

    HE IS A STUD!(JW) HOWEVER ITS GOING TO BE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY D LINEMEN IN FOOTBALL TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON A 2 MAN DEFENSEIVE FRONT ! THAT COUPLED WITH A POORLY COACHED OLINE MAKES THESE PLAYS MORE HYPE THAN REALITY ; AS A STARTING COLLEGE O -LINE MEN I LOVED WHEN I COULD GET HELP FROM THE CENTER OR TACKEL WITH A QUICK CHIP BLOCK BEFORE THEY WENT ON TO PICK UP BLITZING LBS… THE D LINEMEN HAD TO BASICLY RUN OVER ME TO GET TO THE QB . WE RAN A LOT OF 2 DOWN LINEMEN SETS LAST YEAR ! AND RAJI AND CM3 SACKS DISSAPEARED !SO AS GREAT OF A JOB TT DID DRAFTING THIS YEAR IT WILL NOT PAY AS BIG DIVIDENDS AS IT SHOULD !TRUST ME CAPERS INSTALLS THE 3/4 BETTER THAN ANYONE ,HOW EVER HE FLOODS HIS PLAYBOOK CAUSING BLOWN ASSIGNMENTS AND POOR EXECUTION. THIS 2 MAN PREVENT STYLE D WILL COST GB A SERIOUS PLAYOFF RUN AND HIM HIS JOB.. HERES TO ME BEING WRONG ;HOWEVER IF YOU CHECK HIS COACHING HISTORY HIS D ALWAYS SOAR TO THE TOP OF THE LIST HIS FIRST 3 YRS AND THEN PLUMIT TO THE BOTTOM THE NEXT TWO OR THREE YRS DEPENDING ON HOW LONG THE ADMIN. TAKES TO PICK UP ON THE PROBLEM !

    As a life long Packer fan, I am super excited about this season. Not only are the Packers going to be atop of the division, but each NFC north team is looking greatly imporved and should provide us with some great football this season. The Bears are coming in healthy, the Lions should impress again this season, and the Vikings (yes the Vikings) are looking much better than a year ago. My prediction- Pack, 12-4, Bears, 10-6, Lions, 10-6, Vikings 8-8. We ought to go at least4-2 in the division. I think we’ll sweep the bears, and split with the Lions and Vikings (only because we play them at the end of the season and should be resting some starters, but do not worry, we have Minny’s name the first time around) Here is to some great black and blue division football this season!!!
