Good morning everyone, welcome to the JSOnline and PackersNews.com live blog of the Packers vs. Saints game.
How's everyone doing on this rainy, overcast morning?
We can call this the first blog of the Hundley Era.
Protect Hundley, run the ball and get some rush up the middle on Brees.
Linsley is active so they don't need him. Patrick is their backup guard.
I'll let you know as the blog goes on. The weather shouldn't be that much of a factor. It's not pouring or anything. It might be slippery, but both QBs should be able to handle the ball fine.
They signed S Jermaine Whitehead from the practice squad Saturday night so they're at 53.
Adams will get his chance. Right now they need more experienced guys. Adams had no training camp whatsoever and like Vince Biegel he's got to get his injury right. At some point they'll elevate Adams, but middle push has not been their problem. Daniels, Clark and Lowry have done a good job of that.
I don't know why not. Montgomery's going to have more trouble with that rib pad in the rain than anything.
It's drizzling now. Off and on rain. The field should hold up pretty well. It's in good shape. If it were later in the year, it probably would be a problem. But I still expect some slipping.
Not at all. That was all on Rodgers. He leaves the pocket no matter what and it isn't the reason he got hurt.
I don't understand the first part of your question, but no additions are made to the injury report after Friday unless they occur in practice Saturday. If a guy wakes up ill or his back locks up, then they can just not play him.
I would try to get after him a little bit, but not whole sale. He'll eat up a zone if you don't get a rush with your front four. So I would mix in a good amount of five-man rushes and then see how your front four is doing. They need to stop the run in a big way today.
I would think a lot. They need to come up with a couple of turnovers every game. They need to help Hundley with field position. There's a lot of pressure on them.
They have enough safeties. If he can't play corner, then they should get rid of him.
They added S Jermaine Whitehead.
6 weeks? It's a minimum of 8 and you can expect it to be 10 at the very LEAST.
No reports of ligament damage. The injury was to his collarbone not his shoulder.
It should be Jones first. But knowing him he'll go with Montgomery.
Don't turn it over. Throw the ball away if you're in trouble. Avoid sacks and turnovers and if you have to punt, punt. Don't try to do too much.
