Lombardi Ave. has a nice reminder for wide receiver James Jones. The blog post reads, “Jones needs to take a look at the tape from last season, especially that first game in Philly, and watch how many times Hawk’s feet touched the field.” For those that need a reminder, Hawk didn’t play at the beginning of last season in favor of a starting duo comprised of Nick Barnett and Brandon Chillar.
Calling for Ryan Grant to get far fewer carries than James Starks is Shane Arman of Arman’s Titletown Talk. “James Starks is the franchise running back and the sooner the Packers realize he deserves 70 percent of the touches, the sooner they become a TRUE multi-dimensional offense capable of keeping the best defenses guessing run/pass on every play,” writes Arman. “Then we’ll see how great this Packers team can really be.”
Thoughts on Charles Woodson’s recent $10,000 fine are provided from the NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora via NFL.com. “I know Woodson may not have a history with this kind of stuff, much less a deep history, and that’s always a huge factor in these decisions,” La Canfora is quoted as saying. “But for those who claim a double standard in some of these circumstances, well, they’ll use this as fodder for their argument, rightly or wrongly.”
Outside linebacker Vic So’oto sat out of practice yesterday after participating the previous day. Brandon Benson of Acme Packing Company reacts. “It’s a bummer that ever since Green Bay Packers rookie LB Vic So’oto had his big game against the Chiefs during the preseason, he’s been off the field due to an injury he suffered in the weight room,” writes Benson. “I think his return would be welcome on special teams too after their kick coverage allowed a couple long returns by RB Darren Sproles.”
