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.

Point Packer's picture

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.

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.

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.
