Putting aside for a moment the fact that a punter controversy is by all means the silliest position competition that could go down during training camp, the Packers sure do seem to have one on their hands.
This is the second offseason in a row that the Packers have been forced to bring in competition to push Tim Masthay for his job.
And while In 2015, Cody Mandell wasn't able to succeed Masthay, mainly for his poor holding for kicker Mason Crosby, Wisconsin native and rookie Peter Mortell is posing a much more serious threat to Masthay's future in Green Bay.
Later today or tomorrow ( by 3 P.M. Central) we will learn the final makeup of 53-man roster which will open the season for the Green Bay Packers at Chicago on Sunday, September 13. Today, with a full body of work now in the books, we roll out our final Version 3.0.
During every Green Bay Packers training camp there seems to be a “camp-darling”, a dark horse who emerges out of nowhere to tantalize and excite the fan base. Last year that player was wide out Jeff Janis. This year Janis looks to earn more playing time.
If you took a poll of Packers fans you will find that they are divided on how well Zook will coordinate special teams. There are those who see Zook as just another McCarthy buddy who didn’t make much of a difference last year when he was an assistant. Others look at his coaching body of work and come away impressed.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
