Besides the news this week of the new guidelines of what media members can post on social media and report on while at camp, there is plenty of activity on the practice field.
- Rodgers mentoring / coaching the rookie Love
Throughout the week, Rodgers was spotted giving Love advice after drills and reps that Love was taking. If Love was leading the offense, Rodgers was watching with a close eye to how the kid was doing and was there after to provide him with information. That is different than what was reported when Rodgers came into the league. This is definitely a good sign to see, Rodgers sharing his wisdom with the rookie. Love seems to be taking full advantage of the advice he is getting from Rodgers and absorbing all the information from just watching the future hall of famer.
2. Empty Lambeau Field still not quiet
With no fans for the first two home games at Lambeau Field this season, the Packers are pumping in both music and ambient noise throughout the stadium for their practices. The noise is intended to provide the team a simulated experience for what they are anticipating will be a NFL standard for game without fans. Granted, the Vikings already do this with fans in their stadiums. As camp continues and the season nears, I expect the the decibel level will be turned up.
3. Rookies putting skills on display
Second round pick, running back AJ Dillon and third round pick Josiah Deguara are not getting overwhelmed by the playbook. They have probably been the most talked about rookies this week. Both are not hesitating to put their skills on display and film to secure playing time with the season starts. With no preseason games, rookies have to especially perform throughout camp to get the opportunity to make the team and play. Dillon only caught 21 passes during his college career, this week he has already caught a handful and two out of the backfield. Each practice you can tell the kids confidence is growing. As for Deguara, wherever the coaches are having him line up, he is doing what he can to showcase his versatility.
