This thread may be corny but we have a great secondary this year. Definitely the best I can remember in the 15+ years I 've been following Packer football. Show these sexy men some love.

These guys are fun to watch and kick ass. Please don't take these guys for granted. Never forget the dark years and how shitty our secondary used to be...

Good thread.

I think this may be the best DB unit I've EVER seen wearing the Packers uniform.

How about that Woodson? playing into his 30s at the level he is, and Harris too. I am wondering how long they will be able to keep it up.

My question is how does this unit compare to those from the 60's?

Adderly, Jeter, Wood, Moore, Hart, Whittenton...?

I think Kurt Schottenheimer deserves a little apology as well. we busted his balls more than a few times the past few years. and with some quality talent... I have to say they are the most consistent and best prepared aspect of our team every week. They come to play every Sunday.


good thread.

I think of the starters, only Harris hasn't returned one for a TD. err nm Bigby hasn't either.

Collins, Williams, Woodson and ???

Agreed... one of the best move Sanders (I believe it was his call, maybe it was Winston Moss's) made.. separating the corners from the safeties.. allowing Schott to focus on the safeties and Lionel to coach up the corners.. albeit Schott still has the title of secondary coach.. this configuration has done wonders for this group.

It makes a hell of a lot of sense if you ask me.. more teams should adopt the strategy.. the positions are played so differently that specializing in each area is just plain smart. Keeping the cohesion probably is a challenge but from a pure developmental and coaching perspective.. it is brilliant.

These guys stepped up even when the rest of the team is floundering.
They carried the Packers through several games with outstanding playmaking. They sparked a fire in games that would have been lost if not for them.

They as a group have been the "never say die" leaders of this team.

Keep it up guys. I'm glad you are all Packers.

This is a perfect thread to mention this.. we (okay I, lol) have beat on Teddy's skull the past couple of weeks about his failure to address the oline's interior troubles.. while that is true.. he has nailed one aspect that troubled this team for a number of years.

A corner or corners opposite Harris.. previous GM's tried numerous times to fill that void.. Teddy nailed it will Woodson.. and the next wave of Williams and Lee look very promising.... in today's NFL.. a premium is put on cover corners.. and with our style of play.. it is even more vital.

Job well done Teddy, coaching staff and the scouts out there.

Blackmon has a chance as well to continue to develop at corner.. Bush.. well you don't win every case. :lol:

I agree Tramon looks promising (btw how did we get him? yeah!) I'm not sure about Patrick Lee though. I do like Blackmon, but I think he's gonna be stuck returning Punts and Kicks lol he's too lethal back there to move

We got Tramon as a free agent.. he didn't stick with the Texans I believe.

Lee.. kid is as green as the grass on an early June day.. you watch... a year from now, he will have the making of a damn fine press corner..

Yep, a street free agent I believe, just like the ones that so many blast Ted for bringing in. :)

I hope so, about Lee. I haven't seen much of him yet.

I went and watched one of the training camp days.. kid has the natural talent to excel... with Washington coaching him up.. damn he should pop off next year.

He has excellent extension on his jams and gets real fluid when turning and running with the receiver lack ball skills and route awareness.. bit on simple moves... inexperience I hope.. for what I read pretty cerebral kid... I liked what I seen in camp that day.

and we shouldn't forget Al Harris was drafted in the 6th round by the Bucs, he didn't stick and got picked up by the Eagles who traded him to us, that is damn close to going undrafted and not sticking like Tramon did.

I bet to differ. The Eagles really liked him and if they didn't have two stout DB's already, he'd have been the starter. I believe he was on the field quite a bit as their nickel guy.

I'm not POSITIVE, but I think Al wanted a chance to start and the Eagles were offered a trade and in somewhat of a nice gesture to Al made the trade with the Packers.

But no mistake about it, Al Harris was an integral part of the Eagles secondary.
