Through a member of PackersHome, we have an opportunity to ask Green Bay Packers linebacker Sam Barrington questions about where he's from, when he knew he wanted to play in the NFL, what its like being a Packer, etc ...

Some links about Sam
PH Profile
Packers Profile
PH Link1
PH Link2
PH Link3




If you bumped into Sam, an NFL linebacker with the Packers, and could ask him any question, what would that question be? Would you ask something about his childhood, being an NFL player, being a Packers player, favorite movie??


  1. I would ask him about getting that phone call he made the team. Who called you and what was going through your mind during the call?

Pre Snap... what are your primary reads for the offense past alignment?

With the NFL rules on targeting, when the opportunity arises to lay some lumber on a offensive player, would there be any hesitation in trying to lay the guy out with a rib shot? Does the threat of a fine cross your mind in the moment?

Your questions are the best, but if the fine wasn't in his head before it probably is now. Or, if it wasn't when you mentioned it, it probably is now that I commented on it.

Hmm. I am not so sure I want him telling us what his reads are. I would love to know. It would be quite an education but still ...

Just wondering more about the inner workers of the Packers?

Which players seem to not get the credit they deserve for behind the sense stuff?

Like helping other out? Helping rookies out?

Which players help movative others?

A lot of the Packers players are clearly leaders by example... but who (if any body) is the vocal leader and the leader of the leaders?

Maybe a playful story or trick play by the players?

Are the coaches always serious or can they be playful as well?

When they're mad, who would you be more scaried of? Winston Moss or Kevin Greene?

Which player (if any) where you like... "woooo I get to play with that guy, AWESOME"?

I have heard that the biggest transition from college to pro is the speed of the game. Is this true or is it something else such as more complex playbooks?
