Quick hits: Packers @ Chargers

  • Starters are expected to play only a few series so don't look for extensive work by the 1st teams.
  • With the coaching staff wanting to get a close look at rookies and UDFA's, now is not the time to be on the sidelines. Gurley is a bubble guy and said to be behind Diondre Borel for a 6th WR position, should there be one. He will need to return and be a top performer from here on out in order to stay alive for that spot
  • With injuries lingering to Derek Sherrod and Newhouse, look for one of the young guys to try and get noticed and keep a roster spot as an OL. 7th rounder Andrew Datko has been hot and cold in camp so far. He will need to win most of his matchups tonight to stay in the conversation. Herb Taylor will start at LT tonight and look for the Chargers to attack him on the edge with their starting unit
  • While it seems settled that Graham Harrell has a lock on the #2 QB spot, both he and BJ Coleman will get all the reps tonight. Watch for each as they command the offense and face a new set of faces with live pressure. This game will be a big step toward fans gaining confidence in Harrell as backup after the team lost sure-handed Matt Flynn this offseason
  • Packers' D line is another unit to watch and they will look to establish dominance with 2nd rounder Jerel Worthy at RDE. They will also only have a few series to work with. He and Daniels (out tonight) are said to have injected some feistiness into the D line and fans are anxious to see more than they say in 2011 from this group
  • Recall the secondary was beat in their 1st preseason game last year. That was against Colt McCoy and the Browns, who were not an offensive juggernaut. That seemingly set the tone for what would be their 2011 season. Watch for Davon House and rookie Casey Hayward to flash some of that talent that's been the buzz this year. Both are expected to be on this year's team and House is fighting for the starting RCB spot with Woodson moved to safety.
  • There always seems to be a standout on special teams every summer. Watch for one of the LB's who are on the bubble to make some noise and stick as a ST'er. Dez Moses is one of those guys primed to be "that guy" this year
