The latest from Bob McGinn about Michael Montgomery is extremely encouraging on many levels. The thrust of the piece is about Montgomery, but the real point of interest is the fact that the Packers brain trust are taking a cue from the Giants defense of '07 and playing with moving their defensive ends inside on passing downs, putting four defensive ends on the field, much like the Giants and their 'Ace' formation last year. (To be fair, Jenkins was already moving inside on passing downs, but he was a defensive tackle before he was moved to end)
More and more, things are pointing to a much more creative approach on the defensive side of the ball, which shows that McCarthy is not blind to the shortcomings that were apparent to almost everyone. (Especially Kevin Gilbride) Now it's simply a matter of Packer fans holding their breath, hoping Bob Sanders is up to the task of presiding over a creative, multi-faceted defense.
