Packers Daily Links: Administrator Takes Leave of Absence

Packers vice president of administration and general counsel, Jason Wied, is taking a leave of absence. “Jason is going to take some time to take care of a personal matter,” Packers president Mark Murphy told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Our senior staff and leadership team will handle his duties during his absence.” No reason was given for Wied's absence. He was a finalist to replace Bob Harlan as Packers president in 2007.

More on Jason Wied comes from JSOnline, and the Associated Press.

The Packers made a roster move on Tuesday, adding offensive lineman Chris Campbell to the practice squad. "The coaches were impressed with the 6-5, 328-pound Campbell in just the first few days of training camp practice and he would have had a shot at making the team if he had stayed healthy," writes Tom Silverstein at JSOnline. "Now, he will be available for call-up, possibly as a replacement for Chad Clifton should Clifton wind up on injured reserve because of his hamstring pull." To make room for Campbell, the Packers relased Paul Fenaroli who was only with the team for a week.

On Tuesday, players spoke about the communication errors that plagued them in their most recent game against the San Diego Chargers. "The Packers spent part of Tuesday watching the film of Sunday’s game and after taking a day off Wednesday will return to practice Thursday to begin preparations for Monday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field," reports Rob Demovsky of the Press-Gazette. "The film reiterated what can happen when communication breaks down, so the focus this week will be on correcting those errors, which almost always happen before the snap."

More on the communication issues come from the Milwaukee Journal and the Packers official website.

Linebacker Frank Zombo met the media and put a human face on a difficult situation in which he suffered his third injury this season this past Sunday. "I feel like I'm stealing in a way," Zombo told Fox Sports Wisconsin. "I want to get out there and play and I want to earn my check. These injuries are keeping me from doing that.” Zombo sustained a hamstring injury against the Chargers that will very likely keep him out at least from the next game against the Vikings.

More on Frank Zombo comes from and JSOnline.

Using linebacker Desmond Bishop on the blitz is looked at closely by Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He would like to offer his services to help take pressure off Matthews," writes Dunne, "but he understands there's a team element to the game and he has other responsibilities. On Sunday, for instance, he got stuck covering tight end Antonio Gates a good number of times." Bishop has a team-leading four sacks this season.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season.

A stock sale for the Packers could happen as soon as next week. They could be as much as $250.

More on the stock sale is by the Associated Press.

"A Minnesota writer focuses on the Packers pass defense."

easiest article the dude every had to write.
It reads...

Even Kyle Orton can throw for 4oo yards against this sad sack pass defense.

The end.

"cow hasn't had an original thought in 9 weeks...."

Simplest concept to digest ever.....

Yeah pretty easy to throw for 400 yards when you get down by 14 or more like pretty much every team they've played. Oh, except Atlanta, but amazingly Matt Ryan didn't manage to rack up 400. Strange...

By the way, Kyle Orton didn't even break 300.

Who gives a shit how many yards a QB throws for or how many yards a team gives up - points are what matter.

The Packers are 16th in the NFL (7th in the NFC) at 22.5 points per game. Is it great? No. But it's more than serviceable. Especially when the offense can throw up 35 without breaking a sweat.
