Rather than let them go to waste, I've found a few brief items from the Super Bowl we'll publish here, including this one from A.J. Hawk on Media Day...
Ever since Nick Barnett went down with a season-ending wrist injury in early October, fellow inside linebacker A.J. Hawk took over play-calling duties for the Green Bay Packers defense, a job that's become second nature to him.
“My comfort level is very high," said Hawk. "That’s something I’ve done on and off in the past and now it’s more of a full time thing now. I feel real comfortable and I enjoy it. I don’t fee like I have too many issues with it.”
Hawk gave an insider's peek into how a defensive play call is relayed to him.
“There’s a bunch of different people who have to communicate just to give me the call," said Hawk. "As soon as the play is over our guys up in the box, Coach Capers, they’re watching the offensive personnel – what they’re putting on the field. Once they figure out what they’re in, they relay that to Coach Capers. He’ll get on the headset, radio, to (Assistant Head Coach/Inside Linebackers Coach Winston) Moss and Moss will radio it to me.”
