In preseason showings, this game marks the 14th matchup between the Packers and the Patriots, with the last matchup happening in 2005, where the Patriots claimed a 27-3 win in Green Bay. Plenty of situations and scenarios will headline the evenings events with one of the biggest debates being whether Aaron Rodgers should be playing in the preseason or not? Lindley may not play long as he has only been on the team for less than a week and would be expected to know incredibly little about the offense.
White, coming out of Louisiana Tech, picked up two receptions during the 11-on-11 portion of Saturday’s practice, and he’s consistently outshined second-year receivers Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis.
The Cabela’s store near Lambeau Field in Green Bay is on land owned by the Green Bay… I’m excited about him, but we’re going to take it slow with him. The trials and tribulations should be a fun follow for the next few years. This is the first real indication that anyone will get.
In addition, Quarless was targeted only 2.8 times per game last year, but he managed to rack up 33 receptions for 354 yards and four touchdowns. The former Michigan product is someone the Packers need to emerge.
Neal is the third string back for the Packers and will be called upon quite a bit in this game. “If they’re not making those plays, they probably won’t be around”. It could certainly happen, but it’s really unknown to this point.
Richards, who is listed at 5’11 and 210 pounds, put his smarts to good use when he broke up plays against Rob Gronkowski and Scott Chandler – two tight ends that tower over him.
“So we did more film work, talked through it, and then in the individual meetings with the young guys we go back and do it the way we used to”.
But he didn’t play in the preseason opener last year, the fourth time in his career he skipped the first game.
Josh Boyce is another smaller guy who can fulfill a Wes Welker type role for the Patriots.
Although Nelson has been quoted several times post-surgery that he’s ready to go, those types of injuries shouldn’t be taken lightly. Brown joins Sealver Siliga, Alan Branch and 2014 first-rounder Dominique Easley atop the depth chart.
Defensively, this is a secondary game for both teams.
Losses in free agency at cornerback compelled the Packers to reload during the draft. Green Bay has seen the mental prowess of their rookie, and beginning Thursday night, Hundley will have his opportunity to show the complete package. As it turns out, that’s exactly what it was, as coach Mike McCarthy and special teams coordinator Ron Zook were each very forceful in their support of Masthay, who struggled mightily during the second half of last season.
P Tim Masthay can sleep better now.
Another attractive addition to Green Bay came in 61st overall pick in 2013, Eddie Lacy. Clay Matthews is preparing to do so, too. What makes this play different from any offensive or defensive play?
