Green Bay Packers vs. Cleveland Browns: 2013 Game 6
Unfiltered game day blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.
The walking wounded (otherwise known as your Green Bay Packers) hit the field today in their Throwback uniforms to take on the improving Browns. Cleveland has a very good unit on defense, but the offense has struggled since Brian Hoyer went down and Brian Weeden stepped in at quarterback.
Packers wide receiving corps will consist of Jordy Nelson, Jarret Boykin and Myles White, fresh off the practice squad.
Today’s captains for the Packers: - OL Josh Sitton, DB M.D. Jennings, LB AJ Hawk.
Inactives for today:
Green Bay Packers
29 CB Casey Hayward
44 RB James Starks
52 LB Clay Matthews
53 LB Nick Perry
59 LB Brad Jones
82 TE Ryan Taylor
89 WR James Jones
Starting lineup changes: 11 WR Jarrett Boykin starts for J. Jones, 96 LB Mike Neal for Perry, 55 LB Andy Mulumba for Matthews, 57 LB Jamari Lattimore for B. Jones.
58 LB Brandon Magee
60 OL Patrick Lewis
64 OL Martin Wallace
65 OL Garrett Gilkey
83 TE Keavon Milton
90 DL Billy Winn
The Browns have only 52 players on their active roster, therefore they have only six inactives.
Keep calm and carry on: Inspiration comes from my wife – has great appreciation for history. Really helps me on a personal level when the kids are being rambunctious. Very appropriate this week for our game against the Browns.
NFL requirement to dress 46: We will dress all 46. there will be a player or two on there we’d rather not play – not going to say who.
Question marks: Hayward not going to play he’s inactive. Mike Neal is active and ready to go.
Linebackers: Malumba and Palmer have had a full week of practice. First time we’ve had all 7 DL up. Excited for Josh Boyd, he’s been working hard in practice – deserves this chance.
Receivers/TEs: White, Stoneburner – they’re going to have opportunities to play today. I just want them to not overthink and just go out there and play football.
