Safeties coach Darren Perry dissects Peprah's play

Packers safety Charlie Peprah has had his issues this season. He was thrown in the mix when Nick Collins was lost for the season in Week 2 and didn’t quite resemble the same player that admirably filled in for Morgan Burnett in 2011. However, the busted plays have lessened. Safeties coach Darren Perry examined Peprah’s progression. “He’s progressing fine. I think he and Morgan, I think they’re developing a good report one each other. The more they play together, the better they become.” “The one thing that you see with Charlie now, you see the consistency that you expect out of him. Early on, I think he was trying and pressing a little bit too much and sometimes getting himself out of position. But I think now he’s understanding what’s really required of him and he doesn’t have to do more than what his role requires him to do.” “With that being said, you see more consistent play out of him and his tackling has really been one of the bright spots that I’ve seen with him. While he’s going to have some misses, guys will miss every now and then, but overall his tackling has been pretty consistent. He’s on par with what we expect out of him.” The biggest difference from early in the season? “Early on I just think it was a matter of not getting the reps and not being as comfortable early on as he is now, like he was last year somewhat. I think everybody felt the need to do a little bit more because people kept talking about Nick not being there – you lost that playmaker. “Nobody can replace Nick. Nick’s a rare player in his own right. You can’t try to be something that you’re not. I think Charlie’s understanding that. He’s being himself and with that you get consistent play and you’re getting a guy that’s running our defense like we need it run.”
