In Lambeau, 7 PM CDT


DE Mike Neal and LB Clay Matthews aren't going to go. LB Erik Walden and LB Frank Zombo are expected to be starters at ROLB and LOLB. Should get a good look at them to see who will eventually take over as starter opposite Clay. CB Davon House will be out as well. CB Josh Gordy is expected to get plenty of reps. Big game for him. RB Alex Green will be seeing his first action of the year and this is a big game for him to. TE Jermichael Finley will be back, and the rest of the TE group will be battling for roster spots(Quarless, Taylor, Williams, Crabtree)

Think I read that Rodgers and the 1st team offense will probably play a couple more series than they did in Week 1.

most importantly, hoping for a good game with ZERO injuries

No injuries please!!!

I like to see how the second and third string guys perform but this is objective numero uno

still early in the game but i think cj wilson has done a nice job in run support early, wish we'd see a bit more in pass rush but he is going up against levi brown quite a bit...walden is athletic and has ability as a rush backer but he's a liability in the run support...looking to see more of lang at left guard but he had a good first drive

run D hasn't looked great

that catch by Fitz was ridiculous

Sherrod doesn't look like he's comfortable at guard so far...I would prefer if the team allowed Lang to start there and have Sherrod groomed under Clifton as his replacement

OL not having a good game. Lang was the one responsible for the first sack given up and then Sherrod comes in next series and is promptly thrown aside by Calais Campbell to allow another sack

Guess I'd rather it be that than a leg injury

damn, how many concussions for Packer players this camp? Levine, Wilson, Lawrence Guy are a few off the top of my head

the chemistry between rodgers and jennings is something special

Rodgers to Jennings on that backshoulder throw=automatic. Can't defend that


Finley lookin like a beast on that drive to. Please stay healthy big man

good first impression by alex green

my comparison for him was a poor man's steven jackson and he showed those tools this drive

Alex Green looked impressive on that drive

Elmore will not make the team. He looks awful again out there

the pick never made sense to me...he's an undersized even front end who doesn't have the athletic ability to stand up and be effective

Bad game for Sherrod and the OL in general. 4 sacks given up tonight so far


Also, Cobb getting his left knee checked out on sideline after his last Kick return. He's bending it, trying to get motion back into it. Was just going to comment that I didn't really like him returning kicks this late in the game with a bunch of backups out there on his return unit

With all due respect, I think almost everyone made that comparison. :)

I was at the game, but I'm watching it right now on NFL Network... Sherrod looks bad!

He's a rookie during a shortened offseason playing 2 positions - 1 of which he has never played before.

I'd actually prefer Lang to play LG because Sherrod is much better suited to play tackle in the NFL. Bulaga looked the same way last year and much improved this year. I'm not too worried about Sherrod, he's going to take his lumps just like any rookie.

It was an exciting play but all he did was run right by the DB who stood there. Flynn made a nice pass and it was an easy TD.

And yet in 1 game he's managed to show more than Swain has is 3 seasons. If the kid can play special teams I'd take him with my final WR spot.

It was a nice play but he has to do more then that. Basically any WR with decent speed could have did the exact same thing. The DB didnt even put a hand on him and let him run right by while he stood there. What final WR spot? We already have 5 (Jennings, Driver, Jones, Nelson, Cobb).... So he is trying to get a spot on a already stacked position. It will be tough to make the team when we could really use that spot elsewhere. If we go with 6 WRs the last one is going to have to really show something and play special teams.

Well, by all accounts the coaches have raved about him during practice, and with a player like him on the roster bubble, he needs to make an impact in games. Even though it wasn't a difficult play, he nonetheless caught a 97 yard TD bomb. That's how you stand out amongst a group of camp fodder trying to make the roster

Exactally, he may not nor ever be starting material but he's shown more than most of the bubble WRs on the roster.
