Yeah I can't disagree with this. I still would like to see Harris added to the good. Because he was really good.

Gillette gets lost when we talk about WR' s but he is a player that seems to always do what he is asked of and that TD catch was really, really good.

Spiderpack's picture

Yes. Yes that is right there.

I'd add Hawk and Williams to the bad for that TD run as well (I know, you ran out of space), Hawk for missing the tackle and Williams for making a poor effort to get into position to make a tackle.

Watch the replay, Hawk was held big time on that play. Guy grabbed his arm and spun him sideways.

While not directly attributed to the break away run by MJD, watch BJ Raji on that play. He gets pushed straight out of the gap and spun around. Raji has zero anchor as a NT.

Oppy's picture

I'm a fan of what I've seen. He's raw and untested, but he can stand up two blockers and stand his ground, and he can also push a single blocker backwards at will. This is completely premature, but I see more NT in Pennel than in Raji. Will Pennel prove to be an NFL caliber DLman vs. Starting caliber opposition? Only time will tell.

All I can really say is I feel Raji is a talented player that is stuck in a system that doesn't play to his strengths. My opinion is BJ Raji is best suited as a 3-tech DT in a conventional 4-3 where he is allowed to shoot the B gaps or perhaps line up elsewhere and use his quickness to stunt into the A gap and wreck havoc. behind the LOS. I do think Pennel's demeanor and apparent skill set looks more a match for the 3-4, and I'm eager to watch him develop. I think he could be a good NT.

Ahhh, I don't know what you're trying to pull me into, but I know when someone is shining my knob.

Thanks, but no thanks. I've got my own problems to deal with.

I'm still hoping Sean Richardson can be our man at safety, along with Ha Ha.

If Sean is Nick Collins, he still has at least another year to show us he is Nick Collins. Nick didn't kick it until his 3rd year and Sean hasn't really played yet, though he has studied & trained. But I'm seeing it all over the place and he has all the physical gifts. He's not 4.37 Collins, but he is eff'n 4.43 and with his size and the way he hits he could be the muthufkn payload trainwrecker, and the field general in space as well. Cross your fingers, he played college football with our man Casey Hayward.

It exciting to think what this offense can do. Hopefully Raji is OK. And honestly, Gillett deserves a spot on this team. He seems like an underneath safety valve option the team doesn't really have otherwise. Anybody could fill that role but it's his specialty.

RCPackerFan's picture

The bad. BJ Raji tearing his bicep.

Imma Fubared's picture

Wow. I have to say I think the Good should go to the defensive back play. One of the better performances I've seen from them in a long while.
Just saw the Vikes march 97 yards in 5 plays with running and passing so the Pack d backs better be ready.

These practice games will be over soon, u suck

DoURant's picture

I think the UGLY might have a 2nd candidate with Raji out for the year. Having to rely on Pennel to do the bulk of the work at the nose could be a lot to ask of the rookie, even though he has looked good so far. Might have to get in touch with Pickett for some veteran play at the nose. I don't think Jolly has been cleared as of yet, so don't think he is an option as of now.

Richard Rogers & Hasean Dix are crazy OverRated. Bradford & Thornton.....non-existent. Have we traded Adams to Cleveland yet? Ted bombed the 1st 4 rounds of this draft as he continues a history of missing on early round picks.

sonomaca's picture

Yeah, like Rodgers, Matthews, Nelson, Lacy, Hayward, and Cobb. All busts. TT must be a real loser to have drafted such bums.

Tretter is gone for 6 weeks.

I like Linsley's stones:
"The urgency level is just through the roof," Linsley said. "I've been working hard, but it's a different animal out there with the ones. I've got to fill in at the highest level. There's no room for nonsense anymore and ridiculous mistakes. [Missed assignments] are out of the question anymore, and the urgency level is hyped and I'm prepared for it." -via the four letter network

"Tretter, a second-year pro, took every rep with the starters during OTAs, minicamp and in the first three preseason games."

This is not good. I hope Linsley can handle the job, but the reality is that Linsley was the insurance policy the Packers didn't want to use. The first four games of the year were looking challenging before. Now you're looking at a rookie staring three out of his first four games on the road. Not having a cow, not throwing in the towel, but it is what it is.

We had a rookie protecting A-Rod's blind side last season. He did pretty well.

I'm assuming being a rookie (true) Center playing in between the best Guard combo in the NFL is a much easier task than being a rookie LT (Bahk last season) on an island most of the plays.

MarkinMadison's picture

I think there are several differences. First, Bulaga went down earlier in camp, giving Bahk more time to prepare with the 1s. I commented earlier this month that I didn't think that there was a true competition here - they were zoned in on Tretter for quite a while now, and so he was getting the reps. with the 1s. I think that Tretter needed and used all of that preparation and was producing solid results on the field as a result. It will be much more difficult for Linsley to come in and replicate.

Second, center is a lot more of a mental position. Ideally, he should be making the line calls and adjustments. Go back and look at all of the articles praising Tretter's off-season work ethic. Particularly, his knowledge of the offense and how that allowed him to focus on his (physical) fundamentals. Linsley does not have that advantage. Just the opposite. In his first interview out of the gate he is acknowledging that he has a lot of mental errors he needs to get cleaned up in a hurry.

I'm not saying he can't do an adequate job. I am saying that everything had been lined up perfectly for Tretter to succeed right out of the gate. Expect a bumpy ride for the first month. If the Packers get lucky and Linsley excels, I'll be as happy as anyone, but you can't judge Linsley too harshly if it doesn't happen.

Evan's picture

Maybe I'm naive but Linsley doesn't concern me, really.

As far as line calls and adjustments, I feel like Rodgers, Sitton and Lang can help take the pressure off him there.

The physical fundamentals shouldn't be an issue for Linsley as it was for Tretter.

Part of me is actually wondering the likelihood that Linsley takes the job for the first month and never lets it go.

MarkinMadison's picture

I don't disagree with that at all. The guy reportedly has brute strength. Tretter will now be missing a significant number of games for the second year in his two-year career. If he can come in and play well the job will be his to lose. My point is that I don't think you could put a young man in a less advantageous position. I'm not saying he CAN'T. I'm saying if he doesn't, don't judge him too harshly because this was not the plan.

SSSSSSSSSSShhhiitt, the offense will be good for 11 or 12 wins. The Pack has 3 stud runnings backs and AROD. Only way they go to 8-8 is if they lose all 3 rb's or AROD. your back to you suck.
