Looks like Stonehands has been promoted to the 53. I think that means we'll see Jermicheal Stonehands at WR.


see what I did there

I like him.

ya in preseason he showed a little bit - was hoping he would get his chance. I like it! especially when we need catchers ... btw what was up with rodgers and boykin not on the same page last game? rodgers always threw the ball out of reach- would of been comical if the game wasnt on the line

This is prolly just for special teams, other than that I don't know why they signed him.

Also maybe because some of the other TEs ( Finley / maybe Bostick) will be helping to fill the void at WR. So if Jones is out this week, the depth chart might look something like this (Finley will be listed twice)

WR: Nelson, Boykins, Finley, Bostick
(also wouldn't mind trying to work Franklin into the slot some as well)

TE: Finley, Quarless, Taylor, Stoneburner


I didn't list Bostick at TE because they don't seem to think he can block well enough to put him on the field there.

Also in training camp, when defenses played zone against them, Stoneburner seemed to be able to fine the open spots in the zone a lot better than the other TEs, reminding me a bit of Bubba Frank / Havner. They both struggled at times against man coverage, but go to a zone coverage and they'd find the open hole in the zone. Stoneburner did some of that... and he caught the ball better than Quarless or Taylor (though he did have that one really bad fumble).

Stoneburner's also been filling in at OLB on the scout team...

Time to see what Myles White can do too. I think they signed him today as well. I wonder if White can be a slot receiver.

I can see a new McCarthy offensive innovation coming ...

The Packer 5-tight-end formation!

Special teams addition for now.

Packers will be showing a lot more 2wr 2te sets until JJ and Cobb get back.

I guess the question is who lines up opposite of Finley?

My guess is Quarless, he'll be the main blocking TE/FB as well as maybe Mike McCarthy will start using him as a decoy again. I LOVED how Mike McCarthy would use him as a decoy during the Super Bowl year (after figuring out he can't catch).


Basically they'd use Quarless speed (which he's fast) and tell him go straight down the field as fast as you can, which would clearly get the attention of the Safety not wanting to let a TE get deeper than him.

Then a WR on the outside would run a crossing pattern and it'd make for an eay catch and run as Quarless had cleared out the Safety.


BUT I'd been hoping they would use Bostick at WR some, as his weakness is blocking, WRs don't need to block as much as a TE does... give Bostick a chance there. Also wouldn't mind seeing what Franklin has in the slot... of course both of these need to be tested in practice and if it looks bad then no go, don't even try it in a game.

Kind of surprised they haven't signed Ross back.

But I think they'll probably give Bostick a shot here and there too.

I'd love to see them make RANDY MOSS an offer though!
