DeShawn Wynn. All he did was come off the practice squad and pick up blitz after blitz. (Brandon Jackson I hope you were taking notes.)

WTG DeShawn.

Usually I notice RB blitz pickup, and I can't think of any of them(damn alcohol).

I'll take your word for it. Blitz pickup is huge and a big pet peeve of mine when RBs SUCK at it.

Wynn deserves more carries, especially on short yard situations. C'mon Mccarthy, you're killin me here.

He was solid. McCarthy even touched on it in his PC yesterday.

DeShawn Wynn was moved up on Saturday afternoon and ended up playing in the game on Sunday. I think if you just look at the touchdown play, the blitz pickup that he had in the game, I think that there is a great example of someone that has been here but that's taken advantage of his reps.


Check out the TD play to Jennings. (at 1:33)

Good catch. Who was the other RB on that play, he got pushed back pretty far almost IN TO rodgers. Jackson?

This concerns me now. This could be a big reason the Oline play looks so bad, cuz OTHER people with blocking assignments are failing.

I'm not sure. Jackson didn't play at all. (flu)

DeShawn Wynn will be an excellent asset, he has lost 10 pounds and is in much better shape. He's got the tools to be a #1.

Wynn's play was HUGE for the TD. He heard the line call from Wells and was assigned to pick up the blitzing OLB, and he called Lee to block the lone blitzing guy on the right outside. Both Lee and Wynn had huge blocks to give Rodgers the time to throw it deep.

After reading TheEngineer's post, and after listening to Wayne and Larry's call, it was Wynn who got driven back. But he still picked him up. It wasn't pretty, but it got the job done.

Grant did a good job washing out the lineman on the TD pass to Kuhn too

And to think.. IRing him last season.. and temporarily cutting his behind this season may have woke this fellow up.. he never lacked the physical tools... just the desire and mental focus.

Round of applause is due.. both to Wynn and how he was handled.. something needed to change.. and maybe it has for good.

Nice thread Ironman..

See guys, THIS is the kind of discussions and threads that made me want a Packers website. This is some most excellent stuff.


Sadly, I have nothing else to contribute to it because I was busy babysitting during the game. lol


I did like Wynn when we drafted him. I thought he was going to be a good player for us, then he embarrassed me! I hope he continues his improvement and stays healthy. I like watching him run through people. He's kind of like a Brandon Jacosbs I think.

It's a wonder no one picked him off our PS. Like the Steelers.

I think reputation to date played a large role.. with a solid season under him and good coaching reviews.. this kid has a future in this game. I hope he seizes it.

Watching this I will say one thing I saw on the fumble by Rodgers. Wynn chipped and rolled out to the right and Rodgers was going there but tucked it and ended up fumbling.

If you replay it you see Rodgers was going to Wynn but DeShawn hadn't turned around yet causing Rodgers to pull it back. I wondered about that when watching the game because I saw Wynn out there open and for a second it looked like Rodgers was going to get him the ball.

This is not so much of a negative shot at Wynn in that with more PT he will get better at the little things that can make a play successful or blow up in your face. I like him in that he may do all three things run, block, catch, better as a total package than any RB we have.

The big question with Wynn is can he stay healthy?

I would say the unsung hero of the game was LOW PENALTIES. Only 5 for 45 yards, seems like this was the only game so far that they had less than 10 penalties.

Nice point. I was yelling at the TV on that fumble. I didn't know why Rodgers hadn't thrown it to Wynn in the flats. If it's as you say -- that he hadn't turned around yet -- it makes sense.
