It would be nice to keep a running tally of the players the Packers bring in for tryouts over the course of the season.

Here is the latest batch:

Not a new item, but a little background on the player.

I hope this is not an indication the Adams is hurt worse than we think

I think this is more an indication that any of the practice squad players can sign with the other teams at any time (and WR Keon Hatcher has in the past).

Maybe also a sign that our receivers behind Adams aren’t really showing a whole lot.

As evidenced by the wr stat line this weekend.

Exactly. Aaron Jones led the team with 7 receptions. After that was Jimmy Graham with 3.

But honestly I kinda expected that at some point... as LaFleur's offensive scheme is heavily involved getting the ball to the RB anyway possible (so lots of runs and lots of passes to them, and this is why I wouldn't be surprised to see them draft a RB higher than normal at some point).

But the Packers really have been failing to do this... as they have attempted to be a hybrid with what Rodgers likes (which is not throwing shorter passes)... but without Adams there... they might of had to do less of what Rodgers likes and more of the actual traditional system.


In this traditional system, the RB one of the most important players as they're trying to get the ball in their hands either through running or getting one on ones in the passing games. And without Adams, of course they go to Jones next... as none of the other WRs have yet been able to step it up enough (yet) and this gets the team more in sync with the normal system.

Though I'm a bit surprise we haven't tried (or if we have tried, it hasn't been successful), to set up MVS more for some deep bombs... but that could be partly due to talented defenses not giving enough time for deep shots or being able to cover better.


But coming into this game (first 4 games), the RB/FBs had 23 catches for 172 yards,
The Cowboys game they had 12 catches for 102 yards. (and got Jones 4 touchdowns though via running)
But seems like they went back to more of the traditional scheme this week... or got it working this week.

Whatever they did it looked nice.

This isn't anything new.
Teams do it all year long.
Rash of injuries, players being signed by other teams, always be ready.

I would love to see Pennel back. He could help shore up the porous run defense.

KRK (3h) : NYJ DAL flags on 7 consecutive plays....and hard to argue with any of them
TheKanataThrilla (7h) : Minshew sure does not look like a 6th round rookie
Zero2Cool (8h) : Cardinals are reportedly fielding trade calls from teams interested in star cornerback Patrick Peterson
TheKanataThrilla (8h) : Savage being out is really going to hurt
Zero2Cool (10h) : No Mike Daniels against the Packers Monday night.
gbguy20 (12h) : n doubtful
gbguy20 (12h) : Darnell savage and tonyan also out. tony brow
packerfanoutwest (13-Oct) : sux, but he's not needed against the Lions
Zero2Cool (12-Oct) : Zoroastrianism
Zero2Cool (12-Oct) : Davante Adams will not play Monday night, Matt LaFleur said.
Zero2Cool (11-Oct) : LaFleur liked Tra Carson's reliability Sunday, not just running ball but pass pro. Reason he was promoted over Dexter Williams.
gbguy20 (11-Oct) : he left because he missed smokey too much
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers list Aaron Rodgers as limited by knee injury
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Williams and Lindsley practice!
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Bad...Davante still out. Good.

wpr (10-Oct) : Last visit here was 3 Sept .
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : He's tweeting, so he is at least alive.
TheKanataThrilla (10-Oct) : Does anyone know why nerdmann stopped posting? A little worried about the guy. Don't know if anyone messages him.
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : weird the stat i saw said all other rookie coaches are 4-19-1
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers are 4-1 (.800), while the seven other first-year coaches are 6-26-1 (.197).
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Nice!
Cheesey (10-Oct) : Yup! That’s what I got!
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Sewn numbers and painted stripes = authentic.
Cheesey (10-Oct) : The REAL kind, sewn on name and numbers. What a deal!
Cheesey (10-Oct) : Went with my wife to St. Vinnies thrift store. Got an authentic Clay Matthews Jersey, perfect shape, $5.25!
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : think of it this way. give up a 50k job for the potential to earn 500k if they manage to last just a year on a roster. they come out ahead.
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : lots of things don't give up on their dream until forced to. the reward outweighs tge risk to a certain point in their ife
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : I think for me it would depend on what kind of civilian job I'd managed to secure in the interim. No use screwing up a good thing for a pie-in-the-sky shot at a dream.
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : If a team that had previously cut you brought you in for a workout, would you be open to signing with the practice squad?
KRK (9-Oct) : I would like to see either/or Pennel or Williams. Lancaster and Lowry have been disappointing IMO
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : PFF has Chandon Sullivan and Will Redmond with highest defensive grades
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : Something like that.
buckeyepackfan (9-Oct) : CM3 out till week 10 with broken jaw.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Packers worked out Packers: Rico Gathers, Mike Pennel, Sly Williams
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : A team, dunno. A room, very easily. They interviewed him. lol
beast (8-Oct) : But how well did the Packers know LaFleur's command of a team and room before hiring him? (We'll never know)
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : hhaha great stat
Mucky Tundra (8-Oct) : Christian McCaffrey has 866 yards from scrimmage. The New York Jets have 718
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : @RobDemovsky Most think he was hired for his offensive philosophies and schemes, but perhaps Matt LaFleur’s command of a team and room went underrated.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : seahawks +2 vs browns. Slam it while you can!
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : just a thought. he fumbled at the one yard line this weekend and now they traded for another wr. figure maybe they're switching him out.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Really? Raiders gonna cut Davis??
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : turns out this guy is just a tool
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : apparently, baker mayfield refused to shake hands with the 49ers during the coin toss. they made him pay for it all night.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : maybe the raiders are cutting tdavis after his fumble
KRK (8-Oct) : 49ers are frigging terrific. Both lines are awesome
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : I hope it was one damn sexy pic.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Bills ship WR Zay Jones to Raiders for pic
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : Why does my new kitten seem to prefer to dog's food to his own?
