Packers only missing Rodgers during first post-bye week practice

Packers only missing Rodgers during first post-bye week practice

The Green Bay Packers were back on the practice field on Tuesday afternoon, with everyone present and accounted for their starting quarterback. 

Aaron Rodgers was the only member of the 53 man roster not participating in the team's first post-bye week practice.

The Packers have moved up their weekly practice schedule this week, treating Tuesday as their regular Wednesday practice (ie non-padded) so this would be in line with the schedule Rodgers was on prior to the bye. 

While not everyone was a full participant, every player who had missed games due to injury prior to the bye week took part in today's practice.

Good to hear that everyone was back at practice today. As for Rodgers why risk a setback, he can practice by the end of the week. Thanks, Since '61

The Packers are the healthiest they have been (at this time of year) for many years. Now, if they can just get in synch..........

Alexander and Breeland should give the secondary a boost. Looking at it from the Rams point of view this could be a big time trap game for them. A non divisional opponent coming off a bye week at full strength. In a game like this where the Rams are most likely feeling invincible and heavily favored they could be ripe for the picking, especially if the Packers can put a total team effort on the field in all 3 phases for 60 minutes. That's a big if as we have seen each units ability at various points in every game so far, just not for an entire game.

Rak - I like King, Breeland and Jackson at CB. Put Alexander at SS and let him ball hawk. Or swap Alexander/Jackson. Either way it leaves 3 strong CBs and gets rid of Brice at SS

I’d play all five CBs and sit Brice and Clinton-Dix. Breeland, Alexander, Williams, and King all have the skills, and/or some experience to play safety. Maybe go with a lot of one deep safety schemes with match-up and man under. They could rotate a couple different CBs at the lone deep position while attempting to get more favorable coverage matchups underneath. Needless to say, my suggestion will not happen as long as HaHa is healthy.

Speaking of Clinton-Dix, it looks to me like he is playing the QB for INTs more than trying to prevent receivers from making receptions. I’m thinking he is playing more to the line of the ball, not the line of the receiver on the back end. And breaking early to the point of contact with the receiver/TE underneath. Underneath that aggressive play is needed. But, over-the-Top he is taking himself out of position to make tackles and prevent additional YAC.

Brice might be suffering through a learning curve. I think safeties tend to need a few years of OJT before the game slows down enough. So, it may be too early to determine wether Brice has the needed upside. In the meantime, he is costing the Packers defensively.

Anyhow, I don’t think this defense is good enough to overcome the spotty play of either Brice or Dix. Hopefully, the team will make a change.

Dave - HHCD has been GB's best DB so far this season numbers wise and health wise. We must be watching different games. He is rarely out of position. He's coming up and making tackles. He's tied for league lead in INTs. He has also forced turnovers at key points in games that allowed GB to get a W. He is playing very, very well in Pettine's system and because of the way he's holding down his side of the field Pettine has been able to come up with some decent DB blitzes. People around here seem to want to crucify him cause he made some what? He's not allowed to speak his mind?

TWill is a dinosaur. He has experience sure but he is way too slow for the speed of today's game. I'd still rather see him at SS over Brice. Brice is a HUGE liability and is costing GB games. Other teams have noticed this too. That's why they keep sending deep routes to his side of the field.
