Green Bay Packers vs. San Diego Chargers:
Here is my unfitered game day blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.
Inactive for Packers today:
It’s a long list:
S/CB Charles Woodson, RB Du’ane Bennett, RB Brandon Saine, FB Jon Hoese, CB Sam Shields, TE Eric Lair, OLB Frank Zombo, T Mike McCabe (injured reserve), G Jaymes Brooks (PUP), G Ray Dominguez, T Marshall Newhouse, DT Mike Daniels, T Derek Sherrod, TE Andrew Quarless, TE Ryan Taylor, WR Greg Jennings, WR Tori Gurley and TE Jermichael Finley.
Notes: Shannon Eastin makes history this evening as the first female to ever referee an NFL game. Eastin will be the line judge.
Anxious?: Our players and coaches look forward to the first game, get out of installation mode.
First-string plans: First offense will go 20-25 plays, complete the first quarter. Probably the same for the defense.
Main goal: You want to make sure you come out of this game with information on each and every player.
First NFL game for MM (vs San Diego): I remember it very clearly – it was exciting. Hopefully we’ll compete in tonight’s contest better than we did that particular night. (SD won 17-3)
Overall camp eval: It’s been a good camp. We were able to really have quality practice every single day. I feel like pawsitives have come out of every practice.
Hope for tonight: The thing I’m looking for tonight is to finish every play and play with a lot of energy.
Graham Harrell: Like anyone, he’s competing for a spot on the 53.
Alex Green: Alex will play in the secind quarter. We’ll be smart with the number of plays he plays in.
Herb Taylor: A great opportunity for Herb – we have to be smart and be sure he’s ready and prepared. We’re confident in his ability – this is a big night for him.
Packers vs. Chargers – First Impressions – First Half:
Nick Perry gets his first NFL sack on the second play of the game and then gets called for a ridiculous unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Perry did nothing to warrant that.
