I am amazed Green implies that anyone on ST coasts. The fastest way to get benched is to coast on ST.

Quote:
His voice booms through the speakers on the sideline. It's raspy, punctuated. And between nearly every play, Green Bay Packers special teams coach Shawn Slocum lowers the microphone on his headset and talks to players individually.

These segments of practice in Green Bay tend to be long, tiresome. But players like Alex Green who'd rather be helping the team elsewhere realize they can't pull up.

"You can't coast here," the running back Green said. "We have guys who actually want to be out there. We don't have many coasters."

That's not always the case. But in their fourth year under Slocum, the Packers' special teams may be as strong as they've been since the mid-90s. Through the first quarter of this season, special-teams play has essentially sorted out the NFC North. Two trick plays invigorated Green Bay in wins over Chicago and New Orleans, and the team neutralized Devin Hester and Darren Sproles.

....

"I think we've gotten it to the point now where we have a good group," Slocum said. "It could go good or it could go bad because large spaces of field are involved and excellent players can make guys miss and make plays, things of that nature. Guys are tuned in. We're focused. Our challenge is to maintain a high level of productivity."

Each summer, coach Mike McCarthy emphasizes and re-emphasizes - with headache-inducing repetition - that special-teams play is a player's ticket to the 53-man roster. For sustained success, the daily stump speech is needed.

Players don't enter the league to be a gunner on the punt team. Yet in these "large spaces of field," the opportunity at dynamic plays increases.

So the Packers try to follow a basic rule of thumb.

"If we can eliminate that from having any negative effect on our team, on our games, we can let our offense and defense go to work," kicker Mason Crosby said. "It's not always glory. We're not going to get all the glory all the time. But if we do our job and we're working week in and week out and no one is talking about us too much, then we're doing our job."

ST improvement lies solely on Ted Thompson.

yes, for helping get the personnel, no for making the calls like Mike McCarthy did with the fake punt you got to believe in you ST coach and man up for that call when you are deep in your own territory.

thanks Post received 2 applause.

Yes, Mike McCarthy should get credit for having big balls. Those were gutsy moves.

uffda udfa: Peyton Manning in the movies: https://vimeo.com/21710095
Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
