Gilbert Brown All Star Football Camps

Gilbert Brown All Star Football Camps

Gilbert Brown talks about his Youth Football Camps, his Foundation and the Packers. Join us tonight, 8PM Central Time for this live interview on the Packers Talk Radio Network on BlogTalkRadio.

The Cheesehead Radio crew will be interviewing this immensely popular Packers Hall of Fame Member, who spent ten seasons with the Packers.

These days, Gilbert serves as the Head Coach of the Green Bay Chill, part of the Legends Football League (formerly Lingerie Football league).

Every summer, Gilbert holds several Youth Football Camps in Wisconsin, including one totally free camp for inner-city kids, who get three meals a day in addition to some expert football instruction.

For more information about Gilbert Brown’s All Star Football Camp, please visit Mayfield Sports Marketing or The Gilbert Brown Foundation. And be sure to follow Gilbert on Twitter

Through his foundation, he is also very actively on a mission to stomp out bullying. As hard as it may be to believe now, Brown himself was bullied as a child.

So be sure to tune into Cheesehead Radio tonight, with your hosts “Jersey” Al Bracco, Jayme Joers, C.D. Angeli, and John Rehor for great conversation with a Packers legend to satisfy your Packers fix on the Packers Talk Radio Network.

Packers Family Night Faux Pas: Messing with Mason Crosby

Packers Kicker Mason Crosby

Why?

Packers kicker Mason Crosby was having a near-perfect camp. Everything was going swimmingly. I haven’t had to write about him or even so much as mention his name the past week. (Which is the way I like it).

Then the Packers decided to mess with a good thing on Family Night.

Under the guise of “getting used to the new stadium” (with the new south end zone construction), the Packers took the risk of overworking Crosby and messing up his mechanics with way too many 60 yard field goal attempts (four in a row at the end).

Crosby attempted eight straight field goals at the end of practice. here’s how they went:

37yds.   miss

37yds.   miss

53yds.   miss

56yds.   make

60yds.   miss

60yds.   make

62yds.   miss

65yds.   miss

My first question is why? Everyone (coaches, players and fans alike) knows that Crosby has more than enough leg to make long field goals. That has never been brought into question, even by this former critic of Crosby. Accuracy is another matter, of course. Over the course of his career, Crosby has hit 50% of field goal attempts over 50 yards. That’s not awful, nor is it great, but I’m not here to talk about that.

My purpose here is to ask why would the Packers risk Crosby getting hurt or messing up his mechanics by “showing off” in front of the home crowd? Having Crosby expend the extra energy needed to take those long kicks at a meaningless scrimmage is just dumb.   Once he made that 60 yard kick, wouldn’t it have made sense to end his night right then and there? Not to mention allowing Crosby to finish the night on a positive note, a night when he missed way too many kicks after being Mr. Automatic in camp.

My last question is, who’s idea was this? Was this something McCarthy or Slocum had planned? Was it something Crosby did spontaneously and no one stepped up to stop him? Either way, I didn’t like it at all and I don’t think it was a smart thing to do. The Packers need to protect an important asset like <cough> Mason Crosby <cough>.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Packers Video: Injured Marshall Newhouse Blown Up by Erik Walden

Marshall Newhouse Injured?

Just a quick clip for you all of the last play from scrimmage that Marshall Newhouse played in during the Packers’ Friday night Family Night Scrimmage. Towards the end of this clip, Newhouse is seen jogging to get in position for the next play.  Turns out, he stayed out there for a few Mason Crosby field goal tries (with no rush), and about ten minutes later, was seen walking off the field with the Packers trainers.

Newhouse didn’t appear to be limping at all as he walked off, so I thought I’d go back and see if I could tell where he got injured. After watching the last few series of the first-team offense, I wasn’t able to find any evidence of Newhouse suffering an injury. I did, however, find this interesting clip, which shows Erik Walden doing what he has been highly criticized for not doing, holding the edge against the run and keeping the back inside of him.

Newhouse does not appear to hurt himself on this play, so whatever injury he did incur, he was playing with at the time. All of this makes me hopeful that his injury is not serious. With the Packers perilously thin at the tackle position, let’s hope so. We should have more details after tonight’s practice.
