Welcome to the a.m. edition of Green Bay Packers training camp observations. I’ll wear my sunburn like a badge of honor.
Lang in the mix
The race for starting left guard has become more interesting and less certain. [intlink id=”583″ type=”category”]T.J. Lang[/intlink] graded out as one of the top linemen from the Browns game and has been given the opportunity to win the starting left guard position. Today the Packers rotated [intlink id=”1613″ type=”category”]Derek Sherrod[/intlink] and Lang at starting guard with Lang getting the majority of reps. [intlink id=”225″ type=”category”]Chad Clifton[/intlink] is being rested the and Packers used Lang at guard with Sherrod at tackle and flip-flipped positions when Sherrod got his chance at guard. It looked to me like Lang held his own at both guard and tackle so it will be interesting to see the number of reps each player gets as training camp goes on.
[intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] and the No. 1 offensive unit had a much more successful time against the blitz today. Rodgers was able to quickly identify where the blitz was coming from and hit hot routes by [intlink id=”138″ type=”category”]Greg Jennings[/intlink] and [intlink id=”76″ type=”category”]Donald Driver[/intlink] for big gains. Both plays would have resulted in gains of at least 20 yards. There isn’t much to worry about with Rodgers’ play, but it’s positive to see him on the same page with the receivers. It appears that a back-shoulder throw to [intlink id=”204″ type=”category”]James Jones[/intlink] is almost always available to him.
i love reading these updates, thanks Brady!
Yes, continued great job.
Haha. like the Kids’ update!
Best chance to make the team of these: OLB-So’oto, G-Schluaderaff or T-Campbell, DE-Lawrence Guy, or WR-Chastin West or Tori Gurley?
Best one yet Brady. I get sick of stereotypical sports articles that provide very little actual insight. Every article you have written has been informative and humorous. Well played.
