Packers Podcast: Derek Sherrod's Play Swings in Opposite Direction

On Monday morning I joined Bart Winkler of K107 in Fond du Lac to take our weekly look back at the Packers game, the 21-7 preseason victory over the St. Louis Rams. We discuss the good performances of the team's no-huddle first-string offense and outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott, but perhaps most notable was the disappointing play of offensive lineman Derek Sherrod, who gave up a lot of pressure and had a costly penalty, putting in doubt the the team's confidence in its former first round draft pick.

Just re-watched the game, anyone who says his early troubles were remedied as the game drew on, is at best, out of their mind.

What puzzles me is the pundits who have a short memory. Just prior to his leg injury he was in MM's dog house and was bench sitting a lot. The reasons were twofold: kept making same holding mistake's over and over again and could not learn run block assignments. If he wouldn't have broken his leg, I beleive he would have been dumped the following year and called a bust.
I think he is a bust. The fast turf is too much for him. He is better on sod but half the games are on turf.
His role has to be fill in only. Cannot rely on this guy or expect him to be more than he is.

As Chico Esquela might say, Derek Sherrod has been beddy beddy bad to me. Since I have brought him up yesterday all it has gotten me is in big trouble so I am trying to stay away from him as the subject is just too volatile. I will just say I think he will bounce back and he will fill in adequately if needed this season. He will get the kinks worked out.

What I noticed and was impressed with was the absolute sheer domination of Aaron Rodgers and the incredible speed of the hurry up offense. It's almost like they are on a mission to obliterate the opponent and not let up this season. You just get that sense. There was anger from the year before on those first two drives. I don't know if it was coming from McCarthy or Rodgers probably both. It reminded me of the movie Gladiator when they "unleashed hell" on the opponent. It was over in a matter of minutes. That is the Packers offense this season. Opponents should be beddy beddy scared after what I saw on those first two drives. This should be a record setting year for the Packers offense.

Hope Jayrone Elliott makes the team. Played against a reject but prior in camp was beating everyone in camp he faced. There's obviously something more to this guy and he needs more reps the next two weeks.

I don't like to draw any hard conclusions based off of one or two preseason games but no doubt seeing Sherrod get beat so consistently against the Rams was unsettling. Give the guy a chance to bounce back though before you throw him on the scrap pile.

Its been years since the guy has played on turf like that so now that he has he will be better prepared for it the next time, hopefully.

I think I read he never played on turf. Hard to believe if true, but the SEC doesn't have much need for artificial grass.

It might be years before he plays on astro turf again. @ Saints is the only turf game on the Docket this year. Only the Rams and Saints use it.
