Packers awaiting big things from Nick Perry
If you said no then youre probably in the same place we are a boat named Dont Care. Other fans are not in that place though. In fact, some people started lining up at Lambeau Field at 5 a.m. on Monday morning to purchase their tickets to Family Night, the annual scrimmage between the Green Bay Packers and the Green Bay Packers. Of course. Now, were not knocking anyone for going to Family Night. Most of the people who were lined up to purchase the $10 tickets seemed to be people who thought they couldnt get into Lambeau at any other time during the year. Maybe they dont know how to use eBay or Craigslist, but whatever. Or maybe they just like the fireworks that are blasted off after the scrimmage. Fireworks, yo! During last years scrimmage, the Packers let some big, fat linemen try to kick some field goals.
Analysts bet high on Packers’ future
Chicago defensive line coach Rod Marinelli took Miller under his wing and gave detailed explanations and expectations that changed his approach to football. “He made sure every step counted. Every move of the hands counted,” Miller said. Miller spent the preseason with the Bears in 2012 but was released Aug. 31. Then the Packers called in October for a workout. “I jumped for joy. No question,” Miller said. In December, the Packers activated Miller for Week 15. Otherwise, he was a practice player with the team, always looking forward. He’s still so new to the team, the picture of him on the Packers website has him in a Bears uniform.
most was playing against the Vikings because I had a chance to play against Adrian Peterson,” Bishop said. “That’s my mindset. I want to play against the best.” Song sung Blue In his most recent mock NBA draft, ESPN’s Chad Ford did not have any team taking former Marquette guard Vander Blue in the two rounds Thursday night. In his ranking of the top 100 draft eligible players, he has Blue listed at 71 overall. Ford rates Blue 16th among all shooting guards.

According to the Detroit Free Press, manager Jim Leyland plans to rest all his position players at some point during the stretch. All of them except Prince Fielder. Leyland will use the first baseman as a DH on those days he’s not in the field. “He’s got his streak going,” Leyland said. “I don’t want to break that.” Fielder has played in 417 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the major leagues.
Nose tackle Jordan Miller took circuitous route to Packers
His gaze is different. I can just look at his face and look at in his eyes and know he’s not happy with what transpired last year and he’s determined not to let that happen again this year.” Perry played only 198 snaps in six games before his injuries, a modest average of about 33 (or roughly half) per game. But in looking back to that relatively short stint, Greene said he felt confident Perry had made progress — most notably in the unfamiliar realm of pass coverage. Greene pointed to the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts as evidence. Perry, of course, had one sack in that game and lost another due to penalty. But what caught Greene’s eye was an effort in pass defense against Colts receiver Reggie Wayne . “He carried Reggie Wayne vertical up the field in a Cover 2 concept and it was as good as I can coach it,” Greene said. “He carries an All-Pro vertical up the seam in a hip-trail position. That tells me: You know what, he can do everything coverage-wise. He progressed during his time last year as a player.” Proficiency in pass coverage will keep Perry on the field in 2013.
