Packers Morning Buzz: Revenge or repeat?
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’ll start with Ryan Wood’s look at the play of Kentrell Brice and how he’s become the enforcer in the Packers defensive backfield.
Reckless abandon fuels each collision, a disregard for his safety as much as the poor soul he’s about to flatten. As Kentrell Brice approaches his target, he calculates angles and simultaneously clears his mind.
He knows this will hurt. It usually hurts. He just doesn’t care.
“You don’t think,” Brice said. “You just hit.”
Brice is a walking conundrum in a safety-wrapped sport. The NFL, reacting to concussion concerns, clamped down on head hunters in the past decade. New rules restrict violence the league once glorified, shrinking windows for legal blows. Big hits are supposed to be nearing extinction.
Somebody forgot to tell Brice.
