Packer Notes: Matthews Wins, Havner's Workout, and Chalk Talk

New, comments

Once again, LB Clay Matthews is honored as the NFC Defensive Player of The Week. He had 4 tackles, 1 sack, 2 pass defenses, and a 62 yard INT return for a TD against the Cowboys. It's the third time he's won the award.

According to Packer Report, TE Spencer Havner worked out on Tuesday and could re-sign by Monday. I'm not so sure about this one. Brad Biggs said the Packers worked out 8 players this week, while Packer Report specified they only saw Havner. It's certainly possible (assuming Havner's injured hamstring is healed) that he could take over for TE Andrew Quarless (if his injured shoulder is serious) or for one of the recently signed linebackers such as Diyral Briggs. 

Chalkboard talk: Doug Farrar of Football Outsiders breaks down some of CB Tramon Williams's recent games against the Vikings, Jets, and Cowboys. Meanwhile, Pat Kirwan at NFL.com examines some of the blitz packages Dom Capers used against the Cowboys. Both are great articles, but really detailed if you're not into all the Xs and Os.
