Safety Dance – It’s the NFL version of that tune (substitute pads for hats) as the grown men paid to wreak havoc on the football field are restricted to running around in shorts with no real contact. Safety first!
Inside Hype – It’s pretty unusual to hear so much hype coming from within the Packers’ organization about a player towards the bottom of the depth chart, but that’s what we’ve been getting from Gutey, LaFleur, and Bisaccia about one Tyler Davis. Davis was signed off the Colt’s Practice Squad last September after the Colts had picked him up when he was cut by Jacksonville. He had one memorable moment with a 22-yard reception in the 31-30 win over the Ravens, but if the Packers keep bringing up his name, they obviously see something that bears paying attention to.
Free Lazard – Interesting quote from Allen Lazard as reported by Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register, “Davante leaving and everything creates a lot more opportunities for everybody. I’m pretty excited about that as an individual,” said Lazard. That’s Allen telling you he’s looking forward to not being ignored when he’s wide open, as happened in key moments of their last two playoff losses.
The Bisaccia Factor – So he’s a fiery dude. Not afraid to get in your face if you screw up and will be your biggest cheerleader if you excel. That’s all well and good, but will it be enough? Will he be the guy that breaks the curse and does what others have been unable to do over the last decade – make special teams, um, competent? Well, one step will be putting better players on the field for special teams, and it seems he has LaFleur’s blessing to do so. De’Vondre Campbell, Aaron Jones, and Adrian Amos were all seen playing teams in yesterday’s practice. Good.
Is Bak Really Back? – David still in the rehab group after all this time? Should we be concerned or are they just playing it really safe since he got hurt in practice?
Never be content…
