One day into the Green Bay Packers Organized Team Activities — a session that was open to the public today — was successful head coach Mike McCarthy said, but like every season and every team, injury has already taken a toll. McCarthy reported in a post-practice interview this afternoon that rookie J.C. Tretter, a rookie [...]

Fortunatley for the O-line, there is a lot of depth, even if none of it is standout talent. While I hate to see the kid miss this year, I think there will be enough NFL quality O-Lineman to fill in. I saw mentioned on one site that they were looking at him as a backup center, but I think this just makes more of a case for the UDFA kid from Texas A&M. Good luck to JCT in his rehab...now NEXT MAN UP!

Tretter's loss is unfortunate but I've been thinking Patrick Lewis will be our starting C. I looked at Tretter as more of a backup OG, which is where I believe EDS will return. The real loss this year is in the competition a healthy Tretter would have brought into camp.

One of the more interesting aspects of Tretter's injury on the first day of OTAs is: what did we learn?

Our injuries the past 3 years have been through the roof. This kind of stuff should not be happening, and I wonder how this could have been avoided.

Baseball slides in a fumble recovery drill? Really Campen?

If someone breaks their ankle sliding I have my doubts about their durability...

While this absolutely sucks.. it is not the complete end of the world and for as much as I don't like Campen, I cannot blame him for this.. it happens.

Could be worse.. we could have lost our #1 Receiver.

His agent is pissed!

“It’s like they’re trying to slide into second base and he got his cleat caught and his ankle rolled over and broke,” Herman said. “Why they’re practicing a fumble drill, I don’t know. There’s not supposed to be contact. That’s a silly drill. Why have big 300-pound guys slide like that in OTAs?”

If our lineman could ever sustain their run blocks, rbs wouldn't be getting hit in the backfield and fumbling. I agree, they she be working on blocking techniques.

I don't know a lot about baseball.... but they slide in the dirt correct? And the dirt it harder to get your cleats caught in correct? I wonder if all sliding should be done in the dirt at first until they learn how to slide properly... by properly I mean so that you're not going to get your cleats caught and break something.

Just an idea...
I don't know much about sliding.

When I played, I was told if the ball goes on the ground

1) fall on it.
2) pretend it's a cheeseburger
3) put it put it belly . . . . . . . . . . (hold it up against you tight)
4) and DON"T LET ANY BODY TAKE YOUR CHEESEBURGER!!!!!

I'd be pissed too.

Campen is a F'n idiot. And the agent is right, there's supposed to be "no contact." This is definitely a grey area.
