Packers – Rams Video Second Look: Offensive Line

Packers offensive line.There were a few things I noticed while watching the first string offensive line as they were blocking for the rather impressive Eddie Lacy. I mentioned a few in my “First Impressions” post, where I give my initial observations without rewinding. It’s a little game I like to play, a way of testing if my perception of what is happening during the game is accurate or not.

I normally get the answers when I go back and watch the game a second time, this time with the benefit of rewind at will.

Time permitting, I’m going to try to pick one or two of those first impressions and look at them together with you, in video form, every week.

Today’s topic is the offensive line’s run blocking. Although Eddie Lacy had some impressive gains, I was noticing Packers offensive linemen getting pushed into the backfield on several occasions, especially Evan Dietrich Smith and TJ Lang.

In this first video, Lacy breaks off an 8 yard run, but no thanks to Evan Dietrich-Smith (EDS), who can not handle the speed of the gap-shooting DL. Lacy. Matthew Mulligan is also beat badly, and Lacy is confronted with two ST. Louis DL in his path, two yards deep in the backfield. For another running back, this is a loss of a few yards. But thanks to his much-renowned spin move, Lacy gets away from that trouble, breaks a tackle past the line of scrimmage and then plows through a few more defenders for some extra yards. It’s good to have a real running back, isn’t it?

(Note: I slowed the play down in the second part of this video. I also recommend using the pause button to stop the action at various points to get a better idea of what is happening.)

VIDEO: “An American Coach in London”

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Green Bay Packers, but in anticipation of the preseason game this evening, I thought it would be nice to share in some laughter. Our fearless leader, “Jersey” Al, and some of our regular readers are also fans of European football (i.e., soccer), so this one goes out to them, as well. Enjoy!

Jordy Nelson’s New Commercial is Pretty Awesome

Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson joins the club of Packers players appearing in commercials. In a spot for TravelWisconsin.com, Jordy stars in a clever takeoff of the Wizard of Oz. This, of course, makes a lot of sense taking into account his Kansas roots.

The commercial is very well done, although Jordy shouldn’t be thinking about quitting his day job.

Packers Johnathan Franklin: Franklin’s Playbook Video, Part Three

“Character will keep you there.”

This is the third in a series of videos being produced by the UCLA film department about Packers draft pick Johnathan Franklin. (you can find part one here  and part two here) In this episode, we learn about Johnathan’s character and leadership abilities.

You’ll hear a lot of commentary from UCLA coach Jim Mora, who among other things, says, “Datone and Johnathan are just amazing examples of what you can accomplish if you really work hard and have the great attitude that they have.”

I love the sound of that…
