Sunday was the second day of workouts for the Green Bay Packers during training camp and defensive lineman Mike Daniels chewed out some of the offensive guys for getting too physical during a drill that was supposed to not have any contact. Daniels spent the rest of the workout and rest of the day for that matter, promising payback.
Daniels said, “I like to hit, ever since I was a little kid and that’s real football. It’s part of the game. Plus, we get to see what everybody else is made of. Like Mike Tyson said, everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth, so we’re going to do a lot of mouth punching tomorrow and see how people respond.”
Daniels said he thinks the mentality of the defense has changed and that putting on the pads won’t be seen as a chore.
The Packers have 21 scheduled practices in training camp. They’re down to 19 and while Mike McCarthy would like to practice in pads everyday, that won’t likely happen.
The first two days of camp timed out around 2 hours and 15 minutes. Today’s first padded workout will go longer before the team takes Tuesday off.
Packers eye nutrition
Mike McCarthy is leaving no stone unturned in his attempt to get the Packers back to the Super Bowl. His latest move has to do with improving the player’s health.
McCarthy has hired a nutrition expert to make sure the players are eating properly and the food they put in their bodies is affecting their performance.
The Packers announced the hiring of Adam Korzun as the director of performance nutrition.
Korzun worked with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association as well as the U.S. Olympic Committee. He most recently served as the director of sports nutrition at the University of Oregon.
