    • 3rd pre-season game is in the books!
      - Packers lost to the raiders, but who cares…
      - that game should never have been played and was a disaster
      - The field had issues with turf coming up in the end zones only hours before the game
      - not a good look for the NFL
      - Andy watched the game (believe it or not) he actually watched the whole thing too!
      - There were a fair amount of injuries in the game
        + ESB suffered a severe ankle injury and will be out 4-6 weeks
        + Rashan Gary suffered what looked like a neck stinger or something to that effect he has had a VERY nondescript pre season thus far
        Jeremy's blog post about Gary: https://www.absolutepacker.com/blog/rashan-gary-experiment-olb-needs-end
        Andy's wrote a blog post about the field conditions: https://www.absolutepacker.com/blog/lets-cut-crap-shall-we
    • Josh Jones was released the other day
      - This wasnʼt all that surprising but itʼs still very disappointing
      - he was a 2nd round pick just like Jayson Spriggs
      - While very athletic, he was a tweaner at his position (ILB or Safety) and it became obvious that Pettine/Lefleur didnʼt trust him in the defense
    • Dexter Williams, 6th round pick, looks very good except he canʼt catch the ball
      - something Lefleur REALLY wants in his RBs.
      - Tra Carson is ahead of Williams on the depth chart as the 3rd RB
      - not good for Williams at the moment
     • Tim Boyle
      - he played half way decent in the raiders game
      - not sure what that means though
     • Kizer
      - Had one great throw where he led a receiver really well
      - other than that he was his usual inconsistent self
     • WR discussion
      - Trevor Davis is having a really nice camp
        + He played well and had two great catches in the Raiders preseason game
        + He looks great as a returner too
      - Jake Kumerow is an enigma
        + heʼs savvy and gets open
        + if he is anything more than your No. 3 WR that doesnʼt say much
      - Darrius Shepherd should make the roster
        + Heʼs not the fastest but he is very smooth
        + I would take him over J'Mon Moore (Andy)
    • ILB is a serious concern - lather, rinse & repeat
      - Blake Martinez is their best player, but heʼs still average
      - Injuries have left a huge dearth of talent at the opposite ILB spot
    • BONUS!!!
