Aug. 8 camp notes: Offense sloppy in return - JSOnline. The Monday night practice was moved inside due to the rain soaked practice field, and the passes weren't accurate and the backs kept fumbling the football. The coach was not happy. For some good news, second year DE Mike Neal played with the first team defense and Mike McCarthy said Neal is "having a good camp." Second year OL Marshall Newhouse (MM said "He's done some good things") was also with the first team on offense before he came out with a shoulder injury. Also, LB Clay Matthews was back in at practice after suffering a minor injury late last week. And WR Brett Swain suffered a hamstring injury which could knock him out of action for a while.

Mason Crosby is a below-average NFL kicker. Let me prove it to you... | AllGreenBayPackers.Com. Al's evaluation is dead on, but I'll add a couple points. The coaches seem to love him, so I haven't written much (at all) about looking for a replacement because I don't think the team would even try. Crosby's one advantage is that he's looked good in comparison to the awful special teams play overall for the past couple of seasons. Though P Tim Masthay might have moved ahead of Crosby for the back-handed compliment of the best special teams player.

Erik Walden Doesn’t Lack In Confidence | Cheesehead TV. I think he's the least likely of the three outside linebackers (him, Frank Zombo, and Brad Jones) to win the starting job, but he certainly has a chance.
