Episode Info: • 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!!!   - https://www.absolutepacker.com/andy-hetzel-wallpaper/open-season   - full, complete hi-res Packer Photoshop image for the opening game against the Bears! ...
