Packers – When to turn up? When to dial it down?

The Packers finished 32nd in defense last year – yup, that’s right. Dead. Last.

Their pass rush was pathetic and pass defense atrocious.

So, Mike McCarthy’s plan was to rectify the situation – through practice.

However, McCarthy rightly questioned the rules of the new collective bargaining agreement – and asked for clarification on just how far he could take his legions. How close to game situations could he push his players?

If McCarthy doesn’t understand the rules, who does? Well, let’s hope the rule makers at the league and players’ association’s levels understand and relay to the rest of the world what it all means.

In the meantime, the Packers continue on with their Mini Camp this week with one thing in mind.

Fixing that godawful defense.

    It’s a sad thing that even the Player Rep Jeff Saturday doesn’t know where the “line” is and it was the players that wanted to tone down the sessions of contact.

    Taryn, again I have to agree with you. Just where is the “line?” What’s past precedent and how do they go from there? Somebody better get it figured out.
