Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs:
My unfitered game day recap and blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.
Inactive for Packers today:
Inactives tonight: Charles Woodson, Davon House, James Starks, Robert Francois, Jeff Saturday, Andrew Datko, Ryan Pickett, Donald Driver and Tom Crabtree.
The Packers have finished the preseason against the Chiefs the last three years.
Mike McCarthy started his NFL career with the Chiefs in 1993.
Starters: Our starters will play one series, maybe 6-7 plays.
Last week’s game: We felt good coming off the field and even more so after the film study.
Roster: A lot of cometetion throughout the whole roster, not just at the bottom, but for starting jobs also.
Can someone win a job tonight: Absolutely, I’m counting on it. Ted & I have discussed this – it’s the beauty of having a 4th preseason game.
Graham Harrell: GH is just like every other football player competing – he has to play well and he has to earn that opportunity. I don’t really agree with the opinions outside the building. No need for us to address it. GH brings a lot to the table. If we were to play a game tomorrow with GH, our offense wouldn’t need to change… People need to get their facts straight.
Packers vs. Chiefs – First Impressions – First Half:
Raji hurt on the first play? Hopefully just turned an ankle.
Sean Richardson in at safety before MD Jennings…
Nice job by Nick Perry on the Richardson tackle for a loss. Got backfield penetration, forced RB wide, couldn’t follow his lead blocker.
For a second, I thought Shields was gojng to try to run that interception out like last year when he would up getting concussed…
Harrell deep to Gurley. Huge play for both of those guys…
Graham’s Law: Harrell + protection = better results.
I’ve been in Alex Green’s corner since day one, but right now, he’s not finding the holes (assuming there are some). Will still give him a pass for most of this season. Usually takes close to 2 years for complete ACLrecovery.
