Joining us now the starter or trot line might clemens' medical serious radio is here. So Michael I matters a lot to cover lets up first order to reaction from last night. Well I think the most important thing we wanna talk about is as Dom Capers gonna find two starting corners and I've been on this a pretty much through camp. He got a lot of house last night with a hamstring but you know he expect to be the number one and Marius Randle he's gonna go through the concussion protocol. And there's no one else had to me that's released out stood out they've talked about Clinton Rollins is improved and perhaps. Surpassed of the debris is Randall in the former. Randall and Rollins woman too drastic from a couple of years ago so that it's on Kevin K the first guy took in this year's draft. In the second round for four speed. 77 inch wingspan that's one in shorter than Richard Sherman from the Seahawks you know Ted Thompson trying to get bigger and and and whiter like that. Faster pop on the corners and that you know I keep punching king getting burned on a simple post pattern. He couldn't keep up with Randall Cobb and Expos beat the young but that would have that speed I was true critically pleased by his tackling. And they talked about that they're West Coast scout when they drafted this guy. Basically you're gonna be surprise for six foot three how this guy can get down in pads low and his tackles were complete I mean puts an hour on people. He had the one play where he hit did that ball players so hard. That that set up like Martinez to get the forced fumble Christian wrinkle falls on it. So for really nice open field in space tackles and I feel a lot better but Kevin King that he can pick up. The rest of the stuff he blew up that touchdown. Early in the game. Where you know Carson went his role now he would at all answered back columns for a thirty yard touchdown and I talked to king about. You know the blown coverage on a plea talks about plastering went it to quarterback scrambling. Then you gotta get switched from zone. To just man and just plaque to this. Followed that one receiver pick one and stick with them through the play Rollins had a flailing attempt to try and stop. The ball carrier and it being only touched on the eagle scored last night and I talked to Kevin King a rookie at his locker after the game. That's got us stick to my guy more you know when when the quarterbacks are scrambling. It just passenger tenacity that in this so rout in covered. Could bash fest and the yes there's a god thing I think is some similar. I think I go out there and played a way that they've gotten here you know this I mean obviously read a bicycle and I think it's. That obviously we need you know what we are in Canada because you also. Monty would go outside too much and that's if you mess so they try to do extra attached to things that aren't thing you know they know they have to yourself and you. And plays count you gotta make it. So Mike last night when you talk about these guys and how they play I was looking forward to seeing a guy like dean Lowry. Kind of take that step forward obviously we know the Clay Matthews he has that ms. sack last night we know clay became Boston on on a blitz he got home nick Perry. Had his moments last night is one that with a sack last night. Well but the guys are you relying on our some of those guys you're gonna need now that you don't have LaTroy gun anymore my previous Adams is down. Yeah I think he looks pretty good and he's strong and I think just Bryan Price kid is coming not. And showing some progress last I saw him. In the second half of the game and defensive players particularly the guys in the sense of nineteen Lowrie was first to say you know. We don't do live reps in practice it would divvied you have to not to rush stopped being a 100%. Physical and that may have contributed to a missed opportunity when plate could have gotten sacked and Lori was trying to set them up by by taking care of the pitchers big team all. So you always want to finish good. I don't mean Clare were both close and those almost sacks but he almost is a good north and he's a very cornerback fuel supply a lot of the core of Ecstasy or so. It's an extra rep and often taking Notre Dame lost a good quarterback because. Those are athletic big guys that if you have to take down and that's ascendancy in the start this week for him I think I'm not going. Live in in training camp and every day I think. Use the game and your bit rusty with your tackling your former angle so I think it's really important for us in these games to. To emphasize that you you know -- mr. wrapping off and just the fundamentals that we can do in practice that we. Doing the games. So Mike I was legacy. Defensively speaking you're right it's going to be you know kind of who the starters are now it's what you have with some of the guys you're now relying on a sports the depth goes. I wanna Cortes two special teams as well because Arnold runs look. Impressed with the videos it Trevor Davis was setting him Trevor Davis certainly said in a earned that trust last night I know we had him off last season and they immediately pulling off the special teams this year. He is gung ho instead hell bent on being a special teams guy and last night he really did shot. And two or three things about special teams over on it just in the bowl departure. At bat that average 43 net yards his longest 56 yards this snapped from their hearts seem to be okay. That along with the field goal unit you know they were able to take care that I saw Ted Thompson by the way walk in the tunnel where it's the long Stafford Deere cart. Had a conversation with a note of friendly conversation maybe a little bit confidence boosting after the horrible performance they had. And battling night. And then you get to the kick returners situation. Where Randall Cobb you gonna your putting a veteran not to return punts you don't do that he had Micah Hyde doing it for a while. Last year and Trevor Davis is this. Perhaps the fastest guy on the team. But last year he had a nice return for 55 yards against the Falcons and they remember that blowout in Tennessee against the Titans. Where he must Aponte. Just looked like he wasn't paying attention the ball goes down by the sidelines and times recover and then they convert and score on it as part of the blowout. On the Packers in Tennessee in the cart he was so serious Lee handle himself on that particular return. He pretty much benched and by the time to get to be the first week in December he was healthy scratch in active. As a rookie and a guy that they thought that could be the speed that they needed. And that wide receiver corps. So then he comes back in any season and this spring the Packers draft two receivers. He sees how deep they are wide receiver during the Ortiz in the me mini camps. So he says you know. Did. Trevor Davis says the only way I may make this team is on the punt returner so we send the video to Ron's who told us about it. Trevor sent me tapes during the summer of him catching punts which really impressed me he was being worked on it. And these first if you know in the national football if it's ever sent me. Video of him catching catches that ball so he's worked on he knows it's important and he's come a long long long way. I feel very very confident with him catching punts. We actually had two good punt returns last by the end of 47 yard average because he had a laundry return for sixty yards and a touchdown. And all that work in the offseason to try and earn a job on this team as a punt return for right now seems to be paying out celts had a great practice the other day catching balls. Every which way from Aaron Rodgers which really was impressive in its billions Ressa make. When they're so deep at wide receiver but at that position could be so competitive trying to earn a roster spot. And then last night takes one to the house sixty yards when Josh Hawkins one of the defensive backs and yell at him to just catch the ball Trevor. Propagate them a little left and right now someone gunners my double team on the last day. They completely put the got a silence and if you on the play because of the right guy who use come up to me and half Harry Hawkins has cited some to my producer it is they can't sit. But I'll be okay and caught it moved there I you know I knew it was the right and he isn't coming in my hip so. Want to write and everybody made him like perfectly and just to go back so. It was artists as it has in the desert test and it's the return team really has a lot of guys make a return after like in. The guys blocked it a perfectly good working on for a long time in the hold of guys gave him a lot of time the whole entire game so it's really nice. Today go that was Trevor Davis Joseph are let's do this let's take a quick break what what I wanna talk bread home you know talks cornerback or talked in depth and obviously Brett Favre. Well when we come back might stick around we've got another segment of the Michael show logo broadcasting live out here at the goose island ill how's Nixon but resilient on when Mike when his medical series radio. We got more what Mike coming up next. Yeah. Learning the players you forget by September. It's time or another gleaming cool true. Each. Do you buy the Radisson hotel and conference center up.

Come out and join us out there thank you bell. From the oh. For the for the fish Johnson was not in the motorcycle ride promises this year is our tenth anniversary to be bigger and better than ever and if you order read some of the B tells you know exactly what it is I'm talking about. Joining us on the a starter or top line my Clements medical serious radio and Mike. I want as I want it on the opposite side of the football because the guy that we were really looking. To see how much he's progressed to regressed or what have you Brett Connolly. It wasn't a great start it wasn't a bad start to have a for a guy that really hasn't had a lot of meaningful snaps in the last year year and a couple of months. Oh it wasn't terrible live for the way he started out I started out pretty good. Now and all of these quarterbacks to it'll expected McCarthy's telling them you know stay more in the pocket and and he did that he's on the run he's better. I think joke Callahan. Who came in after I'm. Is that way too big of trying to keep in the park pocket we're gonna talk to cart here about an hour half. Callahan was. Ten of sixteen would 81 quarterback rating Jason hill man active athletic. At fort quarterback. He had a hit that one for 46 yards and had a nice flawed as well well executed maybe he's a quarterback now but. Somewhere he could play another position because he's quite the athlete. But a Brett Hundley running offense as a captain out there you saw that he had the command I'm fine with him as the number two quarterback. Through this season you know I've been out here it's true you know the Graham Harrell BJ Coleman. You know air as Scott told scene you know it was a great athlete but. Seneca Wallace they brought him and he got hurt in the first half they had to bring in Vince Young are tired of that I liked it. You've got a backup quarterback going into his third season so Rodgers does have to take let's say a month thought he could at least would have to games. And say this season and then coming course has been nice touch that subject Janice. On the right hand corner and alt route he should they've been sent it up with several slant or that. Yeah it you know it's funny is my first year after on the same you know slugger type of route. Opposite sideline and you know it's just a chemistry Jeff is a great receiver percent at a ball game we've been running slant place an exhibition when it comes slugger army and that was the time. Worked out perfectly Jets ran a great route help the safety and made it system and get Lambeau leap out of it. So Mike one of the things it was the downside to all of this was some of the injuries obviously in last night there was Bible specifically. You guys did Mary's Randall it's the coaching natural rights for the bigger. I'm pork play with a right ankle Rangel goes delicate issues well which. Mallet cut Newbury had to be taken off on on a stretcher via ambulance there remove him from the from the stadium last night. And we don't know his status specifically as of yet but it's hard for the guys. That that see a guy really busted his butt to make the team go down like that. So early not only attorney camper at all put obviously a ball game when he just try to make a roster. He. Going across the middle and the Eagles trade Sullivan goes Howell to on the with them I have no idea why that wasn't a flag. But you know the rules they're you know that I'd just be that football. But nevertheless why they didn't call it Larry rout also as a sports photographer on the sidelines he's got a great still shot or that we're gonna put up but not. FaceBook page he came appear in the opposite Matt. I'm not gonna get the sound of that Clinton out of my head for a while it was that violence. During a collision. So Dupree has to be taken out on the stretcher straight to the hospital spent the night in the hospital. It's actually looked at not as safe as they concussion or head injury but as the upper body injury. So we hoped to know more from that from party but you were the interest and think the guy cut does the deepest ball of the night he had Julia and see. Have 46 sharp pass. And a rookie he's actually been Dupree roommate and he talked about trying to concentrate on the game while you cite your roommate hold off on a stretcher. This is senior and birth. You gotta that's calico and about in your mind and keep playing. But needs and I Everyzing tower and I don't know something about Lavar did to play and it and it's on the run there and do you gotta do you gotta. Had a flesh it out and horrible like annoyance have a guy met a guy is. And no one our room is everybody went there back to succeed. He was out there who's having a good game medical affairs and you hate to see some like that happen. Your teammate this series opens are right yes some move with some view a thumbs up citizen messages on. He did give a thumbs up and I mentioned your after the ballgame like that kind of follow the ambulance out of out of the stadium I was leading at the same time to get over it's open post game show he did give the thumbs up what you could see him move his legs you could see you moving his arms you seem to hawk and to the doctor. You know your whole that was merely getting into the hospital for precautionary measure but it's gotta be tough men watching Geiger Ramon what you're talking to that morning saying hey guys. Let's run get a let's try to make a name for himself. And all of a sudden. You know way easily in their like got beaten off the field Dupree didn't tweet last night that he's good that he's feeling better he's feeling OK so that was good news. Absolutely good and so. That the running backs that you know a Big Five running back to the Packers got the touch the ball last night. In including Jamal. While Williams he had four carries for fourteen yards. The other guy's got a cheated shown static police Phillips that. Got a chance panel ball but you know they only carried the ball eighteen times verses 36 passes that this is a passing team that's really deep at wide receiver. Had to evaluate those receivers like Michael Clark we talked about him. The six foot six guy so. You know that's just something want to work on what teams remaining pre season games are really trying to figure out. Who may be the two maybe three running backs are or some under the challenged time Montgomery who had a fumble that's not a good idea if you wanna be the number one running back. But we talked to Jamal Williams he said that he was gonna caller on uncle is and help them get to the com buy it but I wondered move forward to the next topic in this is that. I'd bill I think the highest position right now. Still is who's going to be the corners. And you've got to bomb house right now of answering he'll come back to various Randle he's got to go to the concussion protocol but this thing is wide open. And I think that Kevin King. Did a good job stopping the run he's a rookie I think he can develop over these next three pre season games we can put opted to go against Russell Wilson. And the Seahawks he's gonna put a guy out there against Julio Jones the next week and had new falcon stadium against Matt Ryan. And here's something to think about too like the Packers and after coming down what that. A procession type of game plan against the Falcons to keep Matt Ryan and company off the field and had that comes up with a running game. But I think Josh Hawkins. Is the guy that I want to watch it. That right now he's right there at with a wide open shot at corner. He's he's coming back for second here is one of the faster players on the team last night he shown his speed on special teams he mosque one play where was a short out route. And the guy got passed by have a chance to jot tacked on Josh Hopkins say man. A chance to get one of these corner jobs now is right there for the taking and I talked a number 48 in the locker. I look I love their moment of it you know I felt like it was gonna come in aiming a little bit after. You know cut couple cases of my you know social pay as you came beat us those so I felt like he'll moan a little bit. And I did a great I was out here in assistance. In a sick of seeing more peavy used. You know. Going in here to. I just that I. You know generally Dom Capers they want me around with these Wendy fees eventually. If any many areas of swing for all quick around some Johnson goes down. And I want going to be an accountant and they to knock home man to man. Joshua on the faster guys out there but it seems I can't seem now in practice that in a couple of steps tonight. Little more hand news and little more jamming guys up the line and trying to do that yes area so just trying to you know I'm a stages. Me making an awful my role model sand shields you know you know command first he would it was compare me. To his abilities and everything like this you know you're too. I'm actually trying to put on it to use you know everything that he talking before he left and everything and I'm Marrero right now so you know I'm trying to couldn't. From a personal our receivers and I'm Chinese. Crystal my feet a little gauges his honesty is that out I've been learning and been practicing. So like guy that's secondary I agree review is still going to be huge question mark rather go over the time to kind of get it all shored up. But there's some promise back there but nobody's really stepped forward to kind of grabbed hold everything needs to witness he would have on house Briggs of the table. Reports also not hey I wanted to note I know we got to run good. You get a great to back and forth with Brett Favre told some really great stories and where is that going to because I know people are gonna moralist of that. Well let's put that up on the bill Michael show where pitchers a podcast as we had a chance to talk to the gunslinger for about twenty minutes of the night he slipped and it down. And what to this small little banquet believe rebel sports banquet Lee was a long time reporter. And then Oprah PR director for the Green Bay Packers such a tremendous kind knowledgeable classy guy. Helped everybody coaches players and media alike and so was that Brett say hey yeah I will come back for something. For Lee who passed away two years ago TH in ninety so well the question for Favre was. Do you remember your first pre season game he says he couldn't quite remember what he did with the Falcons but he saw all. I'm never going had to take that preceding game and played in Tokyo and what happened a Matt Hasselbeck. That Tokyo. Always I'll always think about this Hasselbeck for pre season. I gotta tell my Hasselbeck story aspects like. There you know if we get ready for game. And he's. Count was estimates the book it. Enough that. We mean now he said you know like ones that they snapping and and a series series. She youngsters. Should know what we're supposed we don't we're hip it's. What's that was kind of knew what I got absolutely no one. No one wore. So he's. All right I would guess what he hurt. His tail ball. But like the only time and in the history of ever player or just helpful. And it just happened be in the game he's asked me do that we're. But I hope so he had ride home fifteen hours on this side of Japan airlines. A whole time like. There were. They have you know that when administrators who are like I'm gonna kill you man great story in my got to arrive and appreciate what ducky soon OPEC banks built they go.
