After breaking two bones and undergoing two surgeries, Derek Sherrod has not played for the Packers since 2011. He spent all of last season on either the PUP or the Injured Reserve list. With depth at the tackle position thin and young, Sherrod — who is still on the PUP list — could be exactly what the Packers need.

In his press conference Tuesday morning, Packers GM Ted Thompson was asked about Sherrod.

Hmmmmm.. From today, lets say he might have have some work to do to achieve that. But to be consistent, the Packers under this staff seem to be consistent on under predicting the down time for their players.

Would Ted ever say what is really on his mind? If Sherrod was not able to play this year I expect Ted to tell us right up until he is put on the IR that Derek is going to play.

:-k Would be great if he can. It's got to be frustrating for an athlete to be watching that long. Of course, the money is pretty good so that helps.RollEyes

I think any good GM would. Why tip your hand? Other teams do not have to know what your team situation is. What if you are considering a trade, would you want your potential trading partner that your guy is done for the year or that you expect him back? If they know he is done it may make them hold out for more. Of course any other good GM would probably see through this but why make it easy for them?

I've learned a long time ago never to believe anything that comes out of an NFL GM or coaches mouth. They may be telling the truth but chances are just as good that it is a smokescreen.

I'd rather have a guy that played things close to the vest than a loose talker who kept me, and everyone else, informed of every as it is going on.

If he is on the PUP he will will not be practicing.

He had a lot to learn before he got rusty.

He is so far behind he will likely never be a starter.

Next season he has to show something to catch on somewhere in the NFL.

Calicheeze has it right.
I think Sherrod is done. How much time/money
Has been wasted on players that have ended
Up never "earning" there money and contributed
On the Packers?
To me, if Sherrod doesn't contribute big time,
Get rid of him and use the money/roster spot
For someone that will.
Just my humble opinion.

I am not disagreeing with you. I am not criticizing Ted. I simply said he would not tell us anything other than he expects Sherrod to suit up this season.

I'm not ready to give up on Sherrod yet. I still remember Mike Flanagan.

But I think expecting anything from him beyond spot duty this year is optimism akin to thinking that Daryn Colledge will come back and anchor the line.

For the first 2 1/2 reasons given by CalCheez.

the only way Sherrod ever contributes to this team is if:

1. He is somehow healthy.. which, looks more and more like it will never happen..

2. Bulaga, Bahtiari, Newhouse, Barclay all get hurt or are incapable of filling in (already playing the other OT position)
Mike McCarthy and Co. put a high value on "experience" (despite skill level, and being a 1st round pick) and Sherrod is well below all of these people.

Hell, they might put move Lang to OT at that point because we all know Mike McCarthy love moving those lineman around!

Sherrod will be fine.

If Sherrod ever truly gets healthy, which obviously is a big if, I think he will have as much of a chance of contributing as he did in his rookie season. He'll have to put in a lot of work to get back up to game speed and such, but at least the mental side of things should be a little easier after a couple years of watching film and studying the scheme. After awhile of competing and providing depth, it's possible he could steal a starting spot at either left or right tackle, especially if an injury occurs.

If he's healthy, I think he'll practice and play his way onto the field, eventually. It all depends on whether or not he'll ever truly be "healthy" enough to be an effective player again. He has the intelligence and the ability, he just needs his body to allow him to show it.

All it takes is one injury in November and Sherrod has a chance to contribute. I think they were phasing out Marshall Newhouse late in 2011 in favor of Derek Sherrod. Obviously, Chad Clifton came back, but I have a hunch they were preparing Sherrod to play in place of Clifton. It’s all speculation, but I think they’ve had reservations regarding Newhouse for a while now, and that’s why they’re still not counting out Sherrod.

My bad, I misunderstood. I'm still trying to figure out who hates who on this forum and for some reason I had you pegged as a Ted Thompson hater. The truth is I read the posts and most of the time I don't even read to see who wrote them unless something really sticks out. Like Ted posts.

From Sherrod's dad and brother.

Quote:
Louis Sherrod estimated that his son "should be playing in a few more weeks.


Quote:
The best guess is that Sherrod will remain on the PUP list for the first six weeks of the regular season. Then he could start practicing and play in as many as 10 games.

I don't hate Ted. I may mock him some time (thus calling him "Ted") but I think he is a very good GM. I am certain he has forgotten 5 times as much about football as I have cumulatively learned.

nerdmann I am cut to the quick. I don't hate you. Never have. I may be condescending, I may taunt or do a lot of other crap to you but I don't hate you. You are the tabasco for our eggs. Life would be bland without your posts.


BTW I don't eat tabasco on my eggs. [puke] nevertheless you have to keep up your keen insight.

You should, though.

Either that or piri piri sauce.

Ketchup only if the eggs are old, though.

ketchup never. i gave that up as a kid.

edit- so that we remain on task- Back in the early days of this year I thought Sherrod would make a comeback and play this year. As times slips by and we approach the beginning of GB's run for yet another championship I am not so sure. Naturally I have nothing to base it on. I have no facts what so ever. Only a feeling that sicne they have not taken Sherrod off the PUP and let him get a few preseason reps under his belt it just seems as if he is going to have to sit out the whole season. After a stint on the PUP he has a few weeks in which to practice but it takes time to get back into the flow of things. If it was easy to walk in and suit up and start blocking DL nearly anyone could do it. It takes a lot of time to get the footwork down. To get into a rhythm with the other OLmen. To be in "football shape". I don't think the time between coming off the PUP and when GB has to activate him is enough time.

And I base this opinion on all my years of sitting on my butt in front of the tv watching other guys run out on to the field and take on each other.
