GREEN BAY, Wis. – After the first day of Green Bay Packers training camp, quarterback Aaron Rodgers playfully called the defense “chumps.”

Rodgers carved up the defense that day, but he knew tougher times were ahead.

“I felt coming into camp, to be honest, we were going to get our butts kicked most days because our defense is talented and deep and athletic. It’s one of the best defenses, on paper, that we’ve had,” Rodgers said.

Monday’s practice was the 11th of training camp. Three of them have been at a jog-through tempo, meaning there have been seven “real” practices since Day 1 of camp. The “chumps” have been champs, delivering seven consecutive butt-kickings.

When Rodgers said, “We’re a defensive team now,” he didn’t really mean it. But, through two weeks of training camp, that’s the reality. With David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins and Robert Tonyan out of action, the offense has been playing with three ACLs behind its back.

The defense has been playing at full strength – and at full speed – with perhaps the best starting 11 in the NFL. It is a unit without a weak link. Defensive line used to be a weakness, so general manager Brian Gutekunst signed Jarran Reed and used a first-round pick on Devonte Wyatt. Linebacker used to be a weakness, so Gutekunst used a first-round pick on instant starter Quay Walker.

I don't look at them as deep. Need a 3rd safety, 3rd pass rusher, 4th and 5th CB. But damn, Gutey is creating a fuckin dynasty.

I also trust Gutey to find those depth players.

Hamilton and Galeii look like they can hack it on the edge, not to jinx. Quay can get it done there in a pinch. Rasul is a glorified safety on the box. We'll see what we got in the preseason.

I would take this defense over the SB defense in '10. Again, not to jinx.
“Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all the time thing. You don't do things right once in a while…you do them right all the time.”
I hope "good on paper" translates to "good on the field".
But I also am excited about our "new and improved" defense.
Losing Davante Adams is going to put extra pressure on our offense, especially in the first few games, until Aaron Rodgers can get a feel for how his WRs are going to be.
I know preseason is the time for fluff pieces, but this fluff pieces seems to be going a bit too far.

I mean, I get that the starting defense on paper looks quite good... BUT defense needs depth and they rotate guys.

Where they rotate guys the most is at DL and Edge Rusher, we got the depth at DL but not Edge Rusher. Major depth question mark there.

And someplace you really want some good depth is at DB and outside our top 5, major question marks.

So this could be an elite defense with everyone healthy and playing to their potential, but with a few key injuries could also become a chump defense. Potential extremely large drop off, behind Gary and the starting DBs.

Though, really most my questions are for OL and OLB depth.

Why do you need more than five really good DB's, oh, wait. You said DB, not CB. I'm gonna keep this because it's funny. I read that thinking CB and I was like WTF, who needs more than 5 damn CB's? And just how many times does the 6th CB ever win a game for you? lol

What a long day, but that was funny.
Video on Quay.

Zero2Cool (6h) : Jordan Peterson is pretty good stuff.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Fleaflicker Trade Rejected By fossilboy
Zero2Cool (6h) : WOW!!!
Zero2Cool (6h) : Speaks to immense lack of creativity!
dfosterf (7h) : I addressed your generous trade offer, btw
dfosterf (7h) : My fleaflicker moniker speaks to my older brother like affection for Dave
Zero2Cool (7h) : Well, your clown ass has "dhazer" in your name. Genius. Unoriginal.
dfosterf (8h) : Was mentioned. I, personally, do not care for it at all, and would very much appreciate it if you would just go ahead and cut him. Thank you in advance ☺️
dfosterf (8h) : As to your acquisition of a qb, the matter has been discussed here previously. While some seem ambivalent about you having Trevor- something about regular season vs playoffs
dfosterf (8h) : It's all quite confusing
dfosterf (8h) : First Jersey confuses you with me, then you confuse Jersey with me, O hott
dhazer (15h) : ok shit I am taking down the marine my bad
dhazer (15h) : hell i am taking jersey down with guys I picked up off the waiver wire including my QB lol
Zero2Cool (16h) : You got all ya wanted and still gonna lose!!!
dfosterf (19h) : Logical? Did you really say logical? You traded away pretty much the whole front end of your draft to a guy that you definitely want talking smack up in here, lol
Zero2Cool (19h) : Why would I start a guy I skipped instead of the one I kept? Logical. Try it.
Zero2Cool (19h) : You ask me that question? If I would have started a guy that I could have picked on waiver or the guy I have? What?
dfosterf (21h) : Regardless, give me credit for getting a rise out of Jersey Cheese. He's talking smack to Dhazer, because he thinks he's me. He hasn't posted here in 12 YEARS
dfosterf (22h) : Higbee, that dog won't hunt. Lol
dfosterf (22h) : Ok Hign
dfosterf (22h) : As to you skipping Tyler Lockett, I got nothing. Maybe you should have slept in
dfosterf (22h) : Actually a pretty fascinating trade scenario
dfosterf (22h) : Go ahead. Punch it into that mainframe Cray that makes your cape look more better. Guarantee Tyler comes out on top of that analysis. I'm going on a mere hunch
dfosterf (22h) : You have to pay for expertise. In this case. It's a small fee
dfosterf (22h) : If you had to start one today which one would it be?
Zero2Cool (22h) : lmao what the heck man, another waiver pick up that I SKIPPED ??
dfosterf (22h) : Trade is up.
Zero2Cool (22h) : It was a jog through.
Zero2Cool (22h) : Alexander, Bakhtiari Practice for Packers
Zero2Cool (23h) : Bring it! I gave you two gifts for your scraps. What more from my cellar err STELLAR team do ya want?!?!?
Zero2Cool (23h) : You need your damn eyes checked. It's not even remotely close to that and it's offensive you continue to say it. I've explained it. Which NO ONE in over 25 years has ever had a qusetion.
dfosterf (28-Sep) : So, let's come up with another trade
dfosterf (28-Sep) : But I am done worrying about folks personal preferences, so am done on the subject as well
dfosterf (28-Sep) : It may be an overlord, whatever that is. but to me he looks like he is catching it in the keester by a little black dog. so I remain unimpressed
Zero2Cool (28-Sep) : The avatar is an overlord. If you can't get that through your senile brain, that's you being an dumbass. Enough about it already.\
Zero2Cool (28-Sep) : CB Jaire Alexander suited up for #Packers jog thru practice Wednesday. Same for WR Christian Watson.
dfosterf (28-Sep) : It's just a one liner. 😆
dfosterf (28-Sep) : It's just a one liner. 😆
dfosterf (28-Sep) : Now we get to the true etymology of that avatar you roll with.
