Crosby was unbelievably bad. He is gone.
Loved Lacy's runs.

I missed the Taylor injury. How bad did that look?

Like he's could be back soon? or he's going on the IR?

I didn't see it but he got carted to the locker room after throwing his helmet apparently.

I was most impressed by Eddie Lacy. He looked like a beast. Shields looked pretty good too. Ross made some good returns, looks like he could take over returns full time if he continues to shine like this.

Crosby looked like where he left off last year struggling, I mean he missed like what 5 field goals? Overall I like what I saw today. Next week will begin the real test.

I agree about Lacy, he seems fun to watch.
Starks seemed pretty good too.
Maybe it was the camera angle, but did it look like Cobb had put on some muscle?
Shields looked good, but mainly against second stringers I think.
I suck at focusing on defense so I don't really know how they did as individuals.
The we Hines(sp)? Seemed promising.

Eddie Lacy looked very, very good. He ran with authority and was decisive with his cutbacks. It's just a scrimmage, but he had to get the coaching staff’s attention. A good week leading up to Friday’s preseason game, and he’ll be working ahead of James Starks full-time.

The right tackle job is down to Marshall Newhouse and David Bakhtiari. Those two were alternating reps with the 1s and I don't recall seeing Barclay playing much right tackle. I think Bakhtiari has a real good chance to unseat Newhouse before week one.

Mason Crosby was awful. The kicking competition just got real.

The No. 1 offense looked incredible. Aaron Rodgers has total command of the offense. I know that's stating the obvious, but he looked like Week five Aaron Rodgers and not Family Night Aaron Rodgers.

D.J. Williams has a leg up on the competition for TE2. They definitely like his versatility and he looked more engaged in the offense.

Sam Shields made one pass break up early where he displayed amazing closing speed. He also made a tackle. It wasn't pretty, but he got his man down. I know he was more physical last season, but I still have nightmares of 2011.

Overall, I’m not going to put too much stock into a glorified practice, but I don’t recall the Packers looking this good at Family Night in quite sometime.

Yeah, I was a little surprised to see how many snaps he was getting with the starting O.

got to say lacy pretty much wrapped up the starting spot. hawk is slimmer and faster, franklin needs to be polished. green showed great blocking but his runs were not that great. pease showed great promise he does need practice on his lambeu leap lol. all in all outside crosby and coleman did great the team looked like it finally had some real attitude cant wait til fri to see how we look with the cards. i hope they only use lacy for about a half and let franklin get some time in there to polish up

Did Quarless do anything?

Hey man, if anybody's got the video for me, I'd be obliged.

I did read on the Silverstein and Hunne twitter updates that he didn't practice yesterday due to a quad injury (IIRC). Might not have gotten much work tonight even if he did suit up.

Worried that both the ILbs are a little too slender now.
What just made Crosby even more expendable was Masthay on kickoffs.

forgive my ignorance but can you watch this family nite on tv? ...

read JS'sonline take on it ... and they only mentioned ross messed up on 2 passes (1 slip led to a int) and something else ... they didn't even mention his returns.

lacy sounded real good (thought he was going to be a Great addition) - I just wonder whom we will keep.

And the WRs and TEs also ... who we keeping there ... and the Dline ... we keeping jolly? or is he going to be the odd man out.

Kuhn too ...

nervous for all these guys ... Crosby ya too bad he might not make it back this year. But I don't like the strength of the other guys legs ... got to be able to kick a 60 yarder Smile

Well Ross did slip on the INT but I wouldn't say that's what led to the INT. The pass was thrown badly (late and short) the DB had pretty much already jumped the route by the time he slipped. It looked bad when he fell down and it certainly didn't help but that's not one I'd put on the WR.

Nixon looks like he can play.
