Packers 59 Colts 24 – First Impressions… Preseason 2010
Everyone’s was talking about the D, but I was looking at this as just as big a test for the OL. Can they really protect Rodgers? Evidently, they can.
Sam Shields: Overall, he held his own. As I said last week, he’s already a better corner than Bush. Always near the receiver, always aware of where the ball is and will never get outrun deep. Welcome to the roster.
Dom Capers mixed in just a smidge of other flavors tonight.
As I mentioned the other night on Cheesehead Radio, Raji continues to get turned around and lost sight of the running back on Addai’s long run. Saw it on other plays, too This is going to be a problem if it’s not corrected.
Rodgers passes to Jones often seem to be a bit off target. I think Jones surprises him sometimes.
Does anyone make more one-handed catches than Donald Driver?
The agility training Ryan Grant did in the offseason seems to have really payed off. Grant looks more athletic – leaner, stronger, quicker.
Zombo played well as a starter. Very active and involved. Got some good pressures, even before the strip. He’s made this team.
As usual, Rodgers was a bit too strong early on – hung some receivers out to dry.
MM should have challenged that catch in the early 2nd 1/4. Ball obviously hit the ground.
Would love to see MM call something different on 4th and one. At least show it to keep defenses a bit more honest…
Mike Neal was a force. Doing it strictly on strength. When he learns proper technique, Packers have themselves what they hoped Justin Harrell would be.
Packers defense is one of the best at sniffing out screens. Even the defensive linemen see it, stop, and wheel outside very quickly. Nice coaching job, there.
Somebody needs to come up with a catchy nickname for Jermichael Finley…
Safe to say, the Packers passed their only real test of the preseason.——————
