Greetings everyone, welcome to the live blog of Packers vs. Panthers. It's a cloudy but pleasant day here in Charlotte. Warm-ups have just begun and I'm here to be your guide through today's game.
I think he applied for Medicare. He's getting up there, you know.
I know, but people can't call for Joe Callahan.
I think he's playing on a better defense with other legit pass rushers. Also, he's not having to do much but rush the passer. In Green Bay, he was playing end, DT, linebacker. He had to play run defense quite a bit.
I just thought I'd get started a little early since I figured there would be a lot of interest in this game. You know, with Donatello Brown being active and all.
The medical explanation is that it doesn't have to be 100%. It only needs to be 80%. It won't be 100% for a few months. Non -athletes would just go about their business after that injury. But athletes push the limits and attempt to play as soon as the risks are limited. They're always at risk for injury.
No. When have they given up 48 points to anyone this season.
I don't think so. Everything I've heard is that Sean Payton loves him and is even thinking about him as a possible successor to Drew Brees, whenever that happens.
Thank you, Greg! A reporter's best friend is his copy editor. Unfortunately, the news business is not putting a premium on copy editing. It should. Readers like you don't appreciate sloppy writing and mistakes.
I think if they can stop the run, they can at least be effective. They have to get teams into bad down and distance situations and then bring some heat. Let their pass rushers loose. That's asking a lot and the fact they're using safeties as corners does not bode well.
Jason Spriggs is at right tackle. He's actually been pass blocking pretty well. Where he needs to get better is run blocking. They need him to be more forceful and better read what the defense is presenting.
Unfortunately, I did not. But all my sweaters are ugly.
It's an OK town. I have nothing bad to say about it. I just haven't done a lot when I've been here. The fans are a little bit of front-runners but they can get loud when things are going their way.
Probably that there's more than one way to run the ball. They don't have to run inside and outside zones all the time. They can throw to the backs and get some yardage. I think we've seen better run after the catch the past seven weeks than we had in the weeks before that.
I'm not going to excuse the performance based on youth. But it's hard to play Capers' system with inexperience in the secondary. And in a year when he finally has his safety position the best it's been, Burnett and Clinton-Dix are completely ineffective. I don't know who to blame for that. But McCarthy has some thinking to do in the off-season.
I think we'll see Callahan back on the 53 if he clears waivers. I think they'll reward him for what he's done all year and since they want him back next year, they'll just be paying him two weeks of salary to keep him on the 53.
