I read this article in Yahoo about the Cowboys - who have had a similarly large number of hamstring injuries as the Packers - comparing them to the Broncos, which, according to Demarcus Ware, have a more enlightened way. The specific thing being criticized is "static stretching". I wonder what the Packers use.

As a person who NEVER stretched in all my nearly 60 years of athletic activity, I wouldn't put too much credence in this, but I throw it out there for consideration anyway.

I am no expert on sports medicine but I would think if your team has more than its share of this type of injury you'd be questioning what you are and aren't doing about it.

Being at the Packers-Steelers game last year, I got to watch the Packers warm up, and they seemed to be doing only dynamic stretching in their routine--no static stuff that I can recall.

Maybe, they did the static stuff in the locker room where it was much warmer?

not against you but maybe they didnt do jack in the locker room and this is why we keep having all these injuries.

Yeah, I doubt they did much stretching the crowded locker room beyond individual time spent with the trainers.

After years of issues, why isn't stretching more of a focus for this team? I just don't get it.

How much stretching did they really do?

Morning Roar: A change in the Lions stretch

So the Lions are doing away with organized stretches altogether and leaving it up to the players before practices. It will be interesting to see if this has any impact on their number of injuries throughout the season.

I think we are dealing with men who have been stretching their bodies for the majorities of their lives and nobody knows what their body does and does not need better than they do. We are all different and all our bodies react different.

Not warming up enough can cause injury, and warming up to much can also cause injury. Changing the routine can also positively or negatively effect a player.

I've always needed very little stretching even in my mid 40s and playing ball like I was in my mid 20's.

I stretched a lot and most of it was static. I never pulled a muscle playing ball into my late 40s.

Love this answer from Vic today!

"It’s always been this way but the number of injuries/games lost to injury would seem to be increasing. It’s not limited to the Packers. Training camp reports throughout the league feature injuries to key players. I had mentioned either in this column or in my “Family Night” blog that ACL injuries have become commonplace. Once upon a time, a torn ACL was the death knell of a career. Heads bowed when it was revealed a player had torn his ACL. Evolution isn’t producing a weaker ACL; at least not that quickly. In my opinion, the size of players has exceeded the force the soft tissue of their bodies can endure. In my opinion, the game needs to get smaller and it’s my hope the league and its rules committee will start brainstorming rules changes that would make the game smaller. Or maybe this is the proper perspective: As long as the quarterback doesn’t get hurt, everything’s fine."

Above is a list of all players injured so far this year.

The Packers seem to be in the middle, some teams are better off some are not.

Gonna check this at end of pre season games just to see where The Packers are at.

The rationalizations are amazing. Yes, the Packers are in the middle of the pack, as far as injuries go, THIS year. Yes, ACLs are now "commonplace."

What do either of those have to do with the fact that this team is decimated year after year after year? We field a JV team every year in the playoffs, then bitch that Kaepernick "runs wild."

What are you going to do about last year?
The year before?
The year before that?

The Packers have made changes, introduced different programs, are utilizing a nutrionist expert for the 1st time this year.

Let's see how it works out, crying year after year about years gone by is pretty silly.

2010 The Packers were decimated by injuries and how did they do?

Just think, if The Packers sustain major injuries this year how Excited you will be to come on this forum and tell everyone "I TOLD YOU SO".

The Packers haven't played a preseason game yet and you have them being decimated by injuries.

Jesus, try and enjoy a few games, will you.

Injuries are good, because we won it all in 2010?

I suppose stat whoring is good too. Oh wait!

Damn, figure it out, they are doing everything they can, you say you are a damn doctor of some sort, get the hell up there and tell them what they are doing wrong.

No injuries aren't good, but they are not the only thing that determines whether a team wins or losses.

You are going to be in fucking heaven this year, because with the new rules, The packers better be able to put up 30+ points a game, that is just the way The NFL wants it.

You will call it stat-whoring,

The normal fan will realize that is what The NFL has become.
