    Packers.com articles sometimes tend to paint an exceedingly rosy picture, but this is nonetheless very good news. William Henderson'e comments seem to suggest that a lot of team camaraderie was lost during the Sherman era. Hopefully MM can get it back.

    Perhaps that is true. But I was only encourgaged by the quotes from the players.

    I wonder if the new guys Pickett and Manuel are there. No mention of them at all and what they thought.

    I cannot believe the packers went this long without free weights. It's about time they build some power instead of d!cking around with * machines. Without free weights you can't develop the stabilizer muscles that you'll inevitably use on the field. This will help prevent injury and make us harder, denser, more explosive.

    I have been very wary of our green coaching staff. I have also been very dissapointed with the rehiring of Kurt Shottenmheir - that guy is a waste of space who doesn't deserve to hold my jock for god sakes. What I do like about the new coaching staff, however, is that they seem to be transforming us into a blue collar, hard-nosed football team. And this weight room move is a leap in the right direction.

    Thompson has been prudent in free agency, but he sure as hell dropped the ball on not signing Viniteri. Also, why not even give Jackson an offer? That guy was a beast who commanded double teams throughout the season. Imagine him and Pickett consuming O-lines. Just the thought forced me to change my underwear.

    Looking foward to the draft. No way Farve's not coming back. And maybe it's the Kool-Aid talking, but I'm feeling optimistic about the upcoming season. Go Pack.

    Bob McGinn of MSJ quotes McCarthy as saying the participation rate is 91%.

    So who is not there?

    Favre, Walker, and Carroll are obvious. I doubt he counted the NFL-E guys. Some new guys may not be there yet. Bubba is one of the Miami guys. Roman was not there but the reason is unknown. There are only a few others.

    The few not there are attracting the wrong kind of attention.

    Seems like some of the guys are already burning for the new season

    or maybe it's just everybody whispering "CYA" because the new coaches
    create little doubts in players heads of who is going to start. :twisted:

    Anyway, it's great news.

    Did I miss a paragraph?

    Where does it say Carrol is not there?

    Just because he isn't quoted doesn't mean he is not there.

    Or has it been posted somewhere else that he isn't attending.

    Thanks for the article reference!

    There's good encouragement in those quotes from Henderson and the RBs. Just knowing the leadership that Green is providing to Herron and Gado proves his signing to be a very wise move. Both of those young RBs have a lot of potential and the key to seeing in on the field is solid leadership.

    Sherman's teams always seemed to have good chemistry, but lacked solid leadership for some reason. I hope bringing the team together in the offseason will help build more good chemistry and bring the older guys up as leaders. This is a very young team that will struggle without a solid core.

    As for changing to free weights, personally I think it's a great move. I actually like to lift on a yoga ball instead of a bench (unless I'm bench pressing). You can't lift as much weight because it is so much more difficult due to the balance factor, but you end up seeing much better returns IMO.
