Tom Silverstein Breaks Down the Packers Special Teams

December 2, 2010

In case you missed it yesterday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel took the time to analyze the impact injuries have had on the Packers special teams units. If you follow this link to his story, you can view the chart he put together documenting how the personnel on the Packers kickoff unit has changed over the course of the 2010 season.

Silverstein notes that he is not making excuses for a special teams unit that led to Aaron Rodgers’ “drive for the ages” last Sunday to be forgotten; he’s simply making the point that due to injuries, coaches of special teams have to be sure every single player is ready and able to go out and cover their assignments.

On a side note, I have found that the Journal Sentinel‘s Packers coverage has improved after Greg Bedard left to join the Boston Globe. Don’t get me wrong, Bedard was great – I regularly enjoyed his columns, opinions, and accessibility, but I think he carried the online portion of the sports department. His departure forced the rest of the Packers staff to spread around the responsibility of updating Packer nation with the daily minutiae as well as the breaking news. After all, what can be better than reading updates penned by Bob McGinn on the JSOnline Blog?
