One last chance to make a lasting impression. That’s what the Green Bay
Packers backups have tonight when the Packers close out the preseason at Kansas City against the Chiefs.
The Packers defense started slow last season, but came on strong in the end and finishing with the #1 run defense in the NFL. How will they stack up this season?
The Packers have had a rash of training camp injuries and cornerback Al Harris and safety Atari Bigby will start the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. There’s a chance that rookie Sam Shields may have to start the season as the teams nickelback.
I talked this week with Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers about the Packers defense in 2010.
