Packers-Lions game blog recap

Posted by Duke Bobber on December 12, 2010 – 11:30 pm

Inactive for Green Bay today: Bigby, P. Lee, Smith, Hall, Wilhelm, McDonald, Newhouse and Jenkins.

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:33

10:37[Comment From dondrikdondrik: ]

Since both Bigby and Smith are out, that means Bush is backing up both Collins and Peprah, right? Will we see Gordy on defense today, or just on special teams?

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:37 dondrik

10:38

 

Yes, Bush is the backup at both safety spots. I would anticipate seeing Gordy on special teams.

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:38

10:39[Comment From TomTom: ]

Can you tell me where I can find in what regions this game will be shown because of the Vikings/Giants situation?

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:39 Tom

10:39

 

The website, the506.com, has an updated television coverage map.

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:39

10:42

 

Inactive for Detroit: Stafford, Hill, Brown, Turner, Ugoh, Thomas, Cherilus and Young. Corey Hilliard will start at RT for Cherilus.

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:42

10:42[Comment From dondrikdondrik: ]

Who is the starter in place of Jenkins? Green, or Wilson, or Wynn? Will they be rotating those three all day, depending on run/pass situations?

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:42 dondrik

10:43

 

Green is listed as the starter, but it will really depend on what formation the defense comes out in. I would think there is a good chance of seeing all of them throughout the day, as you said, depending on rush/pass situations.

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:43

10:43[Comment From TroyTroy: ]

Who will be the starting RB today?

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:43 Troy

10:44

 

Jackson is listed as the starter, but Starks will likely get carries and Nance is also active this week too.

Sunday December 12, 2010 10:44

11:11[Comment From zachzach: ]

why is it that starks who had a great game last week isn’t first string?

Sunday December 12, 2010 11:11 zach

11:13

 

McCarthy has said time and again that there are no “depth charts.” Starks didn’t start last week but got took a handoff on the third play of the game and finished with 18 carries. I wouldn’t get too caught up in who is out there for the first snap.

Sunday December 12, 2010 11:13

11:37[Comment From Carol BerrettCarol Berrett: ]

Sunday December 12, 2010 11:43

11:48[Comment From dondrikdondrik: ]

With Wilhelm out for today, will Francois be backing up both Hawk and Bishop? Or do Walden and Briggs fill in as ILBs too?

Sunday December 12, 2010 11:48 dondrik
