Morning Buzz: Packers practice
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We start with Tom Silverstein’s overview of Mike McCarthy’s practice structure and how it’s changed over the years.
This summer, the Packers will use their first eight practices – starting Thursday at 8:15 a.m. – to install their offense, defense and special teams. Each practice mirrors one conducted during organized team activities (OTAs) in May and June.
Players reported to the dorms at St. Norbert College in De Pere on Tuesday evening and to the facility for physical testing and medical exams Wednesday morning. Their first team meeting, in which McCarthy sets the theme for the season, followed.
McCarthy often talks about teaching to the youngest players in the room, but even with a rookie class that could provide a starter or two and some key backups, his expectation is that everyone hit the ground running. No exceptions.
