    Packer Scrimmage

    Some JSOnline highlights (lowlights?) from Friday's scrimmage between the Bills and the Pack. They might be even worse than we've been predicting.....

    Anemic on offense and not much better on defense, the Packers were manhandled by the Buffalo Bills, 14-0, in a controlled scrimmage before a crowd of 62,492 fans.

    When the starters opposed each other, the Packers gained merely 18 yards in 18 plays and had three first downs. The Bills' starters gained 82 yards in 18 plays and had four first downs.

    The difference became much more marked when the backups went against each other. The Packers' reserves gained 9 yards in 18 plays (two first downs) compared with 186 yards in 18 plays (11 first downs) and two touchdowns for the Bills' substitutes.


    In all, the Packers averaged 0.8 yards per play (36 plays, 27 yards) and gained five first downs, whereas the Bills averaged 7.4 yards (36 plays, 268 yards) and had 15 first downs.


    The Packers' offense looked equally overmatched Friday morning in four 2-minute drills that ended practice. With each of their four quarterbacks taking a series from about the Green Bay 40, the Packers could muster just four first downs and didn't score a point. The quarterbacks hit six of 17 passes for 75 yards.

    "We would have liked to have had better execution on both sides of the ball," coach Mike Sherman said.

    "I'm not going to say we were embarrassed," wide receiver Robert Ferguson said. "It's pre-season, man. We've got some things we've got to work on. "

    Favre always starts slow...he'll be much better once the season starts. As for the running game...well...lose both starting guards and see what happens.

    Their Defense is simply horrible...and likely won't improve much.

    All in all, I'm fairly pleased. I can't wait for Green Bay to get back in the cellar.

    More scrimmage notes:

    During the scrimmage, the offensive line was a weak spot. The Packers gave up eight sacks against a blitzing Bills defense and didn't score a single touchdown in the live-contact, move-the-ball portion of the scrimmage. The middle of the offensive line had a lot of trouble keeping the quarterback clean.


    8 Sacks? I always thought that Farve would throw more INT's than he would be sacked. But this year, it could be a tossup.....

    People! People! People! Get it through your heads that this was a SCRIMMAGE!!! How many of you in here are TRUE football fans? If you are, you'll know exactly what a scrimmage is/all about. It's not a regular season game, nor is it a exhibition game. It's simply practice!!!!!!! This is the reason why even I, a sheer packer backer, didn't understand why the NFL wanted to pick the scrimmage up and broadcast it nationally.
    It was not a GAME!!!
    It just so happens that the Bills wanted to practice w/ the Packers on Packer ground. IT WASN'T A GAME!!! These guys are all practicing...working on different schemes, etc.
    A scrimmage is not a time to put your who body/life on the line (like most players would in a regular season, and sometimes even pre-season game). And the Packers, the way it appears, didn't dare try to. This is a scrimmage that was played with another team. It wasn't a game. Why let that team, the other 30 teams and the rest of the national see what you're up (your new look)/plan to execute for the season in a something that's far meaningless than an exhibition game?
    Sure, it was boring. Far more boring than in past times (maybe b/c there was another team on the field w/ them...not used to a Packer 'family fun night' scrimmage with an opposing team on the field w/ them). But, so what. That's what the NFL gets for broadcasting the game...trying to squeeze every ounce of juice they can out of the eventual retiree Brett Favre.
    Did our defense make fans of other NFC North teams laugh, in sure comfort that just maybe, the Packers won't be diddle-e-squat this coming season? I wouldn't doubt it.
    Did our offense appear to be on strike?! Uh, yeah, at times...for the most part that I saw (so boring).
    Is it just a little POSSIBLE that the Packers -although there's still work to be done (as is for all nfl teams at this point)- really aren't that loss? Is it possible that some of the reason they moved around on the field the way they did, was b/c they didn't want to let other teams/players who may have been watching, see how they plan to roll this season? Remember, it was PRACTICE (SCRIMMAGE)!!! How many open practices does most nfl teams have? Why do they, at times, have closed practices? You all are smart enough...answer this one on your own.

    I'm too lazy to read all of that. But whatever you said, you're wrong. :lol:
