Wednesday minicamp practice highlights

Posted by Mike Spofford on June 5, 2013 – 4:56 pm

A few notes from Wednesday’s minicamp practice, which for the second straight day was held inside the Don Hutson Center due to wet weather.

–LB Brad Jones did not practice, which moved LB Jamari Lattimore up to the No. 1 defense, paired alongside A.J. Hawk.

–WR Charles Johnson did not practice after practicing on Tuesday.

–Players sitting out both days of practices this week included WR Jarrett Boykin, WR Kevin Dorsey, RB DuJuan Harris, S Sean Richardson, CB Davon House, LB Dezman Moses, LB Desmond Bishop, T JC Tretter, T Derek Sherrod, DT Ryan Pickett, DE Josh Boyd and DE Jerel Worthy.

–QB Aaron Rodgers was really on his game during an extended red-zone period. In one series of plays, he hit TE Jermichael Finley over the middle near the goal line as Finley slightly collided with S David Fulton, connected on a lob pass to TE D.J. Williams near the end-zone sideline, and then scrambled a little to his left before firing a 25-yard strike off his back foot to WR Randall Cobb at the front pylon.

–The defense nearly stopped Rodgers’ hot streak moments later when Hawk deflected a pass into the end zone intended for WR Jeremy Ross on a crossing route. CB Sam Shields dove to try for the interception off the deflection, but the ball barely grazed the ground as Shields’ corraled it and the pass was ruled incomplete, much to the chagrin of the defensive players.

    KIND OF SCARY TO ME LISTENING TO MM TELL THE WORLD HE HASNT LEARNED A THING ABOUT THE RUN GAME YET….HE SAID ‘he wants to score as fast as he can with as meny points as he can ! meaning two things; my defense sucks and running the ball prevents that from happening !!! ummm mike the reason you were outscored so much by running football teams is because they knew you cant and wont commit to the run, and why a-rod didn’t have good games against average to go good defenses is because as soon as you snapped the ball every body was dropping into coverage…ohhh and why a-rod was again sacked over 50 times !!! hes at the age now where he wont keep getting up !!! AND I DONT GET WHY EVERYBODY SAYS OHHH WE NEED GOOD D-LINEMEN ???? WE AGAIN LINED UP ON D WITH 1 OR 2 D-L MORE TIMES THAN 3 !!! NO DOWN-L IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAME HE CAN DO WELL IN THAT SCHEEM… REASON IS AS YOUR BLITZING LINEBACKERS ARE COMMING FROM FATHER AWAY GIVING EXTRA TIME FOR OFFENSIVE LINMEN TO CHIP BLOCK THE DOWN LINMEN ON THAIR WAY TO PICKING UP THE BLITZING LBS !!! IF YOU WALK UP THE LB TO THE LINE OF SCRIMAGE TO TAKE AWAY THAT HUGE ADVATAGE THE THE QB HITS THE QUICK SLANT ROUTS OVER THE MIDDLE CREATED BY WHAT DOM CALLS HIS PSYCHO PAKAGE ! THIS YEAR GB SCEDUAL IS TOUGH AND JUST HOW BAD A CORRDINATOR DC REALLY IS WILL BE EXPOSED !!! THE GAME HAS CHANGED DC SAID, AND NOW MM !!!! TELL ME,,,, WERE THE RAVENS KNOWN FOR BEING A TERROR ON OFFENSE ? GIANTS ? 49- ERS ?

    Stop… just stop it already.

    Tell us who is a better coach than MM, and tell us how we can get them to leave their team and come here. Tell us why MM has more wins over the last 4 years than the Ravens, 49ers, and Giants? You tell us, oh great arm-chair GM, who a better DC than Dom Capers and how do we get them?

    We have Capers, and he is /really/ good. But we have to get him players to execute the plays. Then we have to hope those players stay healthy enough to keep playing or that their back-ups maintain the discipline of the defense. They need to display the knowledge required to execute it and the athletic ability to carry it out and to make up any mental mistakes. The problem is, if they can do all of that, they wouldn’t be back-ups.

    Also, cap-lock is akin to shouting on the interwebs. It is considered rude and uncouth.

    Not many teams survive injuries each season like GB has had to do. How many other teams would have made the playoffs with their last 3 first rounders on IR as well as their 2nd round pick and a slew of other players…GB is still winning games with their 2nd and 3 options at various positions, I just want to see what this team can accomplish given just one healthy season…hard to be to critical with the number of revolving parts not to mention how many times the refs bent us over last year.

    A good offense sells tickets. A good defense wins Championships! nufsed

    I’m sick of the Packers doing NOTHING in Free Agency. I’m not saying they need to spend for the top free agents, but they have definite holes that need to be fixed to get to the next level and sitting around hoping that their draft picks will develop quick enough to contribute is irritating and frustrating. Even Belacheck uses Free Agency and gets them to Championship games and SB’s. The window for this group of Packers isn’t getting any longer. The time is now!!

    The Packers over the past three years have won a Super Bowl championship, two NFC North championships, and set a franchise record with a 15-1 season. There are not to many teams in the NFL that wouldn’t love to have the problems of the Packers. We sit atop the NFL as the greatest football franchise with 13 championships, and the best fan base in the country. Sit back and enjoy another winning season and put a little faith in Mike, Ted and Dom, if you ask me they deserve it.

    Nice work, airpacker. Your thinking is on a par with your spelling.

    Packers will be fine its all on keeping healthy. Defense looks to be improving, with Nick Perry in the lineup. I’m a little concerned about our young db’s.but young = speed. On offence we’ve moved guys around, in order to protect AR. Super Bowl Bound Baby……………..

    What free agents do you think should be brought in that can make a difference and earn a starting position? The only possibility I can see if John Abraham, but that’s a longshot with Datone Jones performing well in OTAs. Wide receivers are set, have great backups well with Jarrett Boykin and we saw some Jeremy Ross as a kick returner last year. Running game was addressed in the draft. I guarantee MM knows the running game but is wording things differently to catch teams off guard.

    Packers with a decent run game are a scoring machine that won’t be stopped. They lacked mystery and a running game last year. Too predictable on offense, and not enough run to control the game tempo.

    I have faith in the guys in place to fix it, if you can call it fixing when you are already in the top 5 teams in the league. It will take some good fortune on injuries and a few good calls and bounces…..but that is really all that separates the top 5 teams on any given Sunday.
