#53 Wonky in Winnipeg Absolute Packer Podcast

    • Sports

• 3rd pre-season game is in the books!

  - Packers lost to the raiders, but who cares…

  - that game should never have been played and was a disaster

  - The field had issues with turf coming up in the end zones only hours before the game

  - not a good look for the NFL

  - Andy watched the game (believe it or not) he actually watched the whole thing too!

  - There were a fair amount of injuries in the game

    + ESB suffered a severe ankle injury and will be out 4-6 weeks

    + Rashan Gary suffered what looked like a neck stinger or something to that effect he has had a VERY nondescript pre season thus far

    Jeremy's blog post about Gary: https://www.absolutepacker.com/blog/rashan-gary-experiment-olb-needs-end

    Andy's wrote a blog post about the field conditions: https://www.absolutepacker.com/blog/lets-cut-crap-shall-we

• Josh Jones was released the other day

  - This wasnʼt all that surprising but itʼs still very disappointing

  - he was a 2nd round pick just like Jayson Spriggs

  - While very athletic, he was a tweaner at his position (ILB or Safety) and it became obvious that Pettine/Lefleur didnʼt trust him in the defense

• Dexter Williams, 6th round pick, looks very good except he canʼt catch the ball

  - something Lefleur REALLY wants in his RBs.

  - Tra Carson is ahead of Williams on the depth chart as the 3rd RB

  - not good for Williams at the moment

 • Tim Boyle

  - he played half way decent in the raiders game

  - not sure what that means though

 • Kizer

  - Had one great throw where he led a receiver really well

  - other than that he was his usual inconsistent self

 • WR discussion

  - Trevor Davis is having a really nice camp

    + He played well and had two great catches in the Raiders preseason game

    + He looks great as a returner too

  - Jake Kumerow is an enigma

    + heʼs savvy and gets open

    + if he is anything more than your No. 3 WR that doesnʼt say much

  - Darrius Shepherd should make the roster

    + Heʼs not the fastest but he is very smooth

    + I would take him over J'Mon Moore (Andy)

• ILB is a serious concern - lather, rinse & repeat

  - Blake Martinez is their best player, but heʼs still average

  - Injuries have left a huge dearth of talent at the opposite ILB spot
