Davon House Returns Home to Green Bay

    Posted in Autograph Session, Green Bay Packers, Mayfield Sports Marketing News, Mayfield Sports Player Highlight, Motivational Speaking, Motivational Speaking, Packer Appearances, Packer Appearances    |    Comments Off on Davon House Returns Home to Green Bay

A article from Michael Cohen. A great read on Davon House Returns Home.

GREEN BAY – When the Green Bay Packers are on the practice field, it behooves the viewer to pay attention as players work through individual drills led by assistant coaches. More specifically, it’s worth noting the order in which reps are taken.

Though it’s far from an exact science, there is an obvious tendency for players to line up in a manner that reflects the general parameters of the depth chart. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb lead the wide receivers. Clay Matthews and Nick Perry get things started for the outside linebackers. Mike Daniels takes charge of the defensive line.

Earlier this week, it was familiar face Davon House acting as frontrunner for the cornerbacks.

“Now I’m in a role where I’m going out there every time,” House said after Tuesday’s practice. “They call the ones, I’m the first one out doing the reps and the drills. I’m leading by example, I guess you could say. So my role has changed a little bit.

“People might look at me like I’m weird, but I kept all my Packers stuff after I left here. I watched every game, recorded the games. Rooted for you guys except when we played you guys in Jacksonville. But I mean I was rooting for you guys. I felt like I was still a Packer deep down inside.

“I wasn’t going to go anywhere else, unless things were just ridiculously different than here. But this is where I wanted to be, this is where I needed to be, for me to show the world what I can do type (of) thing.”

A fourth-round pick by the Packers in 2011, House returned to Green Bay during free agency when he signed a one-year, $2.8 million deal after the Jaguars released him March 6. He instantly became the most experienced cornerback on the Packers’ roster with six accrued seasons — no one else has more than three — and will be asked to juggle a number of different hats in his second stint with the team: leader for a youthful group; mentor to second-round pick Kevin King; probable starter in Week 1.

It’s a role he is eager to fill.

“All I’ve got to do is teach what the vets taught me,” House said. “I was lucky to have Tramon (Williams), Sam Shields, Charles Woodson, me and Casey (Hayward) came around at the same time, Jarrett Bush. We’re talking about leadership. If anyone is talking about being a Hall of Famer, I had Woodson. If someone was an undrafted guy, like Herb (Waters) wants to talk about starting from the bottom, I mean Williams did it. You have nickel guys, Casey was a nickel here, so if guys want to talk about that, Casey was the guy. Those are guys I can talk about, the way they did things, the way they worked as references, so it’s easy.”

The Packers lacked a veteran presence for what amounted to the entirety of the 2016 season. Sam Shields, the unquestioned No. 1 corner, spent the majority of the year away from Lambeau Field after suffering a concussion in Week 1 that wound up ending his career. He recovered for several months in his native Florida as the youngsters behind him — Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter — stumbled through their second seasons in the league.

“Sam’s presence meant a lot, especially to guys that are just two-year players,” Rollins said. “But having House in the room, it brings an older element to the room, a guy who has been around here on some great teams definitely will benefit us. I feel it.”

Randall and Rollins are entering what might be defining years in their NFL careers. Though both players were hampered by groin injuries that required surgery, their on-field performances were queasy enough to force general manager Ted Thompson to use his top draft choice on a cornerback for the second time in three years. If the Packers truly believed injuries were the only issue with Randall and Rollins, it’s unlikely Thompson would have selected King with the first pick of the second round.

“You definitely got to learn from it,” Rollins said of his performance last season. “That’s with anything you do in life. But I just didn’t play to my standards, so getting back to that this year is definitely my main focus.”

Added House: “We’ve got a chance to win the Super Bowl every year. Hopefully with me coming back, we can get that done. I mean with all the injuries we had in the cornerback room last year, if they had me or they had Casey, or if Sam never got hurt, they’re going to the Super Bowl. That’s one of the reasons I feel like I’m lucky.”

The arrivals of House and King are likely to limit the playing time for Rollins and Randall in terms of perimeter snaps next season, evidenced by the alignments used during Tuesday’s organized team activity. In the nickel defense, which is the de facto base for the Packers, the most frequent combination featured House and Gunter on the perimeter with Randall playing the slot. Rollins took the majority of his reps in the slot as well.

When the Packers switched to dime, everything stayed the same and safety Morgan Burnett played as the second slot corner. Kentrell Brice slid in alongside Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at safety.

Come June, when King returns to Green Bay after final exams at Washington, the rotations are likely to shuffle again. Returners from last year have four months to prove the miscues from 2016 were flukes.

“We’re not going to talk about it,” Rollins said. “We’re just going to continue to get better week after week, day after day and just see where we end up. But we’ve definitely got some strides we can make.”

Packers Run The Table

    Posted in Mayfield Sports Marketing News, Motivational Speaking, Packer Appearances, Packer Appearances, Packer Autograph Sessions, Packer Community Involvement, Packer Speaking Engagement    |    Comments Off on Packers Run The Table

Aaron Rodgers never actually defined what “run the table” meant. The last six games of the regular season to ensure another playoff berth? Or all the way to Houston for Super Bowl LI?

Whatever his intent, the Green Bay Packers and their quarterback own the longest active winning streak among the NFC playoff teams, and whether momentum is anything other than some undefined intangible, perhaps the most important thing for coach Mike McCarthy’s team was the confidence that permeated through the visitors locker room after Sunday night’s 31-24 victory over the Detroit Lions.

“I believe in myself and my abilities, but I also believe in this team,” Rodgers said. “This wasn’t just a shot in the dark. It was an optimistic belief in my teammates that we were going to start handling adversity better.”

Rodgers somehow infused that into just about everyone around him with great performances from Ty Montgomery, Davante Adams, Jared Cook, Mike Daniels and more.

As much as anything, and that includes Rodgers’ own stellar play during the six-game winning streak, that feeling could be the best thing the Packers have in their favor as they head into Sunday’s playoff opener against the New York Giants at Lambeau Field.

The Packers have momentum, and Rodgers called that “contagious.”

“You have that feeling now when you enter a game that you don’t have during a losing streak, where you expect to win,” he said. “You expect to win when you take the field, and that’s an exciting energy that you can feel in the locker room and on the field pregame, and guys are sticking together.”

Several times during the streak, Rodgers has praised his teammates for not “making comments [or] being an unnamed source or saying derogatory things about teammates,” and coach Mike McCarthy last week described the team had “a little bit of an edge to them” that he noticed even before the streak began.

It was at the very least noteworthy — if not telling — that McCarthy described the reaction in the postgame locker room after winning the NFC North this way: “It wasn’t the best celebration we’ve ever had.”

“But this team has an energy, has an edge, has a confidence that was evident very early in our preseason,” McCarthy added. “And I’ve always believed in that and they believe in that. So maybe that’s why we’re not doing cartwheels right now because we have, like I said, our plan’s to try to win it all. We’re one of six that gets to go battle it out in the NFC and we’ll tighten our focus to the Giants. But we never lost sight of where we wanted to go.”

The number of players still around from the Super Bowl XLV team dwindles each year, but there are some key components of that team still around, Rodgers and Clay Matthews among them. And this team, the No. 4 seed in the NFC, might be similar to the 2010 wild-card club in at least one way.

“I don’t know if in 2010 we had all the pieces,” Matthews said. “I just think we got hot and no one wanted to play us then. Hopefully that’s the case this year.

“You need to be playing well toward the latter part of the season, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. I feel like we’re capable of getting back to where we want to go, and that’s the Super Bowl. So hopefully that’s the case.”

It would take a 10-game winning streak to do so. The six already off the table might have been the easy part.

“We have bigger aspirations,” McCarthy said, wearing an NFC North Champions hat. “So this is the first step.”

Packers Jeff Janis Hail Mary

    Posted in Mayfield Sports Marketing News, Mayfield Sports Player Highlight, Motivational Speaking, Packer Appearances, Packer Appearances, Packer Autograph Sessions, Packer Community Involvement, Packer Speaking Engagement    |    Comments Off on Packers Jeff Janis Hail Mary

Packers Jeff Janis Hail Mary

Now that America knows Jeff Janis’ name, you will find he is a Green Bay Packer through and through. The Packer Way means Humble, Educated and Team First, Individual Achievements a Distant Second. If you haven’t met Jeff Janis, you are in for a treat as he loves to play football and just wants to help his team win. Catching HailMary2 this season couldn’t have happened to a nicer and team oriented player. We are very proud to work with him.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — When the Green Bay Packers signed James Jones the week of the regular-season opener, it knocked Jeff Janis down a peg on the depth chart at receiver.

Jones immediately became Aaron Rodgers’ No. 3 receiver, and Janis could barely get off the bench.

As productive as Jones was at various times this season (he had eight touchdowns and a career-high 890 yards), Saturday’s 26-20 NFC divisional playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals showed Jones’ limitations and once again brought up one of the most popular questions of the season: Should Janis play more?

For all of Janis’ flaws — his hands aren’t the greatest and his route-running skills are unrefined, as was evident again Saturday when he and Rodgers were on different pages on a throw to the end zone in the second quarter — he gets open.

Yet he played only 132 snaps in the regular season and just four in last weekend’s wild-card playoff win over the Washington Redskins. His only two catches this season came in Week 6.

On Saturday, with Davante Adams inactive because of the knee injury he sustained in Washington combined with the chest injury Randall Cobb sustained in the first quarter against the Cardinals, the Packers had no choice but to play Janis along with Jones and Jared Abbrederis. They were the only three receivers the Packers had left.

Sure enough, Janis produced.

Seven catches, 145 yards and two touchdowns later, Janis strengthened the argument that he should have been playing all along. His 4.42-second 40-yard dash speed and 6-foot-3 size gave the Packers something they could never replicate after Jordy Nelson blew out his knee in the preseason.

But the Packers mostly ignored Janis all season. Before Saturday, Rodgers was just 2-of-11 with an interception while targeting Janis in his two-year career.

“He’s taken advantage of some opportunities, and he’s just a young man who needs to play,” McCarthy said Saturday after the game. “He’s got a lot of raw ability. He made some huge, huge plays tonight.”

Not only did Janis remarkably have two catches for 101 yards on the final drive of regulation, including an improbable 41-yard touchdown as time expired, he also caught an 8-yard touchdown in the third quarter that put the Packers ahead 13-7.

“We felt pretty confident that anybody in our room could step up,” Janis said. “It’s unfortunate when someone gets hurt. When your time comes, you’ve just got to step in and act like you’ve been there.”

Here’s a breakdown of the offensive performance in Saturday’s season-ending loss:

Total offensive plays: 73

Receivers

Notes: Cobb spent the night in an Arizona hospital after he sustained a chest injury in the first quarter. With Patrick Peterson covering him, Jones was shut out on only two targets (including one Rodgers bounced to him on fourth down on the second-to-last series of regulation). It was the third time in 18 games this season Jones was held without a catch, and he had three other games this season with only one catch.

Quarterbacks

  • Aaron Rodgers: 73

Notes: Rodgers’ 41-yard touchdown to Janis was his second successful Hail Mary attempt of the season. He was 2-of-3 on Hail Mary tries this season. The rest of the NFL was 3-of-10, according to ESPN Stats & Information. It was his second completion on a pass thrown 40 or more yards downfield on that drive. He had only three such completions all season before Saturday.

Running backs

Notes: Lacy had 75 of his 89 yards on consecutive carries in the third quarter to set up Janis’ first touchdown. Lacy averaged just 1.4 yards on his other 10 carries. Starks had just 23 yards on seven carries.

Tight ends

Notes: Rodgers was targeted eight times and had five catches for 45 yards.

Offensive line

  • David Bakhtiari: 73
  • Bryan Bulaga: 73
  • Josh Sitton: 73
  • T.J. Lang: 73

Packers Gilbert Brown

Former defensive lineman Gilbert Brown will be talking sports, football, the Packers, cars and other topics on his new “Gravediggers Radio” starting Oct. 7.

iHeartMedia and Mayfield Sports Marketing adds former Packer Gilbert Brown to sports talk lineup

When it comes to covering all things related to the Green Bay Packers, content is king.

Between the Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay media markets, there is a large enough of an audience that simply cannot be over-served Packers content, that many outlets seem to do whatever is possible to set itself apart from its peers.

The latest to get involved is WOKY-AM 920.

iHeartMedia (the new name for Clear Channel stations) and former NFL player Gilbert Brown will launch “Gravedigger Radio” at 6 p.m. on Oct. 3.

“First I want to thank iHeartMedia for letting me bring my brand of sports talk to their listeners. I am so excited to be able to have my own show! Gravedigger Radio gives me the chance to be myself and to share my knowledge of football, sports and life with the fans,” Brown said.

Brown played defensive line for the Green and Gold, earning the nick-name the Grave Digger, for his ability to get tackles and figuratively burry his opponents.

This season, his hour-long program will run on The Big 920 in Milwaukee, on 1070 AM and 100.9 FM in Madison, on 1400 AM in Eau Claire and will be streamed through the iHeartRadio digital app.

“Our whole staff is excited to have Gilbert Brown joining us,” said Regional Market Manager Jeff Tyler. “To have a Super Bowl winner and Packers Hall of Famer on our team adds something special to our exciting sports talk line up on The Big 920 in Milwaukee and The Big 1070 and 100.9FM in Madison! Gilbert’s love of football, sports, cars and how he gives back through his many charitable associations is truly unique and we know fans will love the show. Welcome The Gravedigger.”

“Gravedigger Radio” is a joint venture with Mayfield Sports Marketing.

Packers Corey Linsley

    Posted in Green Bay Packers, Mayfield Sports Marketing News, Mayfield Sports Player Highlight, Packer Appearances, Packer Appearances, Packer Autograph Sessions, Packer Community Involvement, Packer Speaking Engagement    |    Comments Off on Packers Corey Linsley

Packers Corey Linsley earns Packers’ trust and perhaps a permanent starting job

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Corey Linsley needs no reminder that one of Aaron Rodgers‘ greatest throws — maybe even the best one the Green Bay Packers quarterback has ever made — did not count because of his mistake.

“Believe me, I know that,” Linsley said Friday with a guilty smile. “I’ve watched it many a time and felt embarrassed many a time.”

Linsley

But here’s the beauty of Linsley, the Packers’ rookie center: Four days after his holding penalty wiped out an acrobatic throw in the face of pressure that would have been a ridiculous 34-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 28, Linsley made sure to disengage from Minnesota Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph before he could be flagged again and another touchdown — this one a 66-yarder to Jordy Nelson — could be wiped out.

“That’s a credit to him because he’s learning from his mistakes,” Packers offensive line coach James Campen said this week.

Not that there have been many of those. But it’s one of the reasons Campen and coach Mike McCarthy are likely to stick with Linsley as their starter even after JC Tretter comes off the temporary injured reserve list. Tretter spent all offseason and most of training camp being groomed as the starter until a knee injury in the third preseason game forced Linsley, a fifth-round pick from Ohio State, into action without any preseason snaps with Rodgers.

“He’s one of those guys as a rookie that came in here and you knew right away he belonged,” McCarty said of Linsley. “First day of pads, it was like, ‘Hey man, this guy, he’s a powerful young man.’ So he fit right in. That’s why I was never worried about him.”

Tretter is eligible to begin practicing on Monday and could play on Nov. 9 against the Bears, but the Packers may not need him given how entrenched Linsley appears.

“I will say this: If things keep going the way they’re going, I think we’ll look back on this start as probably one of the most impressive situations that a young player has stepped up and performed in my time here,” McCarthy said. “And we’ve had a lot of guys step up.”

And there’s little or no reason to use any caveat in this case. Linsley has not allowed a sack or a quarterback hit, according to Pro Football Focus. In PFF’s run-game rankings, he graded out as the second-highest lineman on the Packers roster behind only left guard Josh Sitton. And for all NFL centers this season, Linsley’s run-blocking grade ranks tied for eighth.

Perhaps more importantly, he has gained Rodgers’ trust. And that trust went up another notch after Linsley’s block on Nelson’s 66-yard touchdown catch against the Vikings.

“There’s often an unsung hero, and it’s always fun to be able to highlight those guys,” Rodgers said this week on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show. “In this case, it was Corey doing a nice job of keeping his feet moving and running his defender past the play and allowing me to throw from a clean spot. That’s when you get touchdowns.”

So what will the Packers do with Tretter? The former collegiate tackle at Cornell has yet to play in an NFL regular-season game. He missed all of last season because of an ankle injury but looked comfortable in the offseason and in his three preseason starts at center.

Perhaps Tretter could go back to tackle, where the Packers may have some roster turnover in the offseason given that starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga and backup tackle Derek Sherrod both are in the final seasons of their contracts.

“When he gets back out there and they clear him to go,” Campen said pausing for a moment, “I don’t even want to answer that question.”

Linsley’s play may have answered that for him.

The Packers have their weekly game management meeting on Friday, at which time they’ll decide whether Jones is healthy enough to play. He returned from a two-week absence due to a thigh strain, but he has not been a full participant in practice, which in most cases is a requisite for starting.

Lattimore, who started against the New York Jets and Detroit Lions, has performed well enough at inside linebacker that the Packers don’t need to rush Jones back into the lineup.

In fact, a question still remains as to whether Jones will get his job back after a poor performance to start the season. Much of that will depend on how well Lattimore plays this weekend against the Bears.

“I like the way Jamari has played,” defensive coordinator Dom Caperssaid. “I think he’s done a good job.”

But for those who think Lattimore is the perfect replacement, there are enough instances where he wasn’t as sound as he needed to be.

“Some good plays and some plays he can improve on,” is how linebackers coach Winston Moss assessed Lattimore’s performance thus far.

In two starts, Lattimore is third on the team in tackles with 20 and has zero sacks, pass breakups, forced fumbles or penalties. He has given the Packers a more physical player defending the run, but he isn’t as experienced dropping into coverage as Jones.

Against Seattle, Jones was bad in all phases of the game and was quickly shut down the following week so the thigh injury, which had been bothering him through the latter part of training camp, could heal completely. Now he is working to get back into football shape.

“I think once Brad gets back and is healthy, it will give us more flexibility,” Capers said. “I like what Jamari has done. It gives us another athlete. We’ll see where Brad is from a health standpoint.”

Added Moss: “Brad has only been limited in practice, how we want to integrate him back in the scheme, that’s still up in the air.”

Ready to roll: It appears Clay Matthews is not going to miss his first game this season due to a groin injury he suffered against Detroit

At least that’s what he says.

Matthews came into the locker room — along with many of his teammates — as the media was being herded out and was pressed by a couple of reporters on whether he would be available Sunday.

One asked, are you going to play?

“Yeah, I’ll be out there,” Matthews said.

Listed as a limited participant, Matthews practiced for the second straight day and didn’t look like he was taking anything half speed.

Coach Mike McCarthy made it seem as though Matthews was limited to individual drills only, so how much more Matthews did after reporters were kicked out of practice isn’t known. But Matthews was in pads and apparently passed whatever test he felt he needed to pass to play Sunday.

Injury report: The Packers had five others on the injury report, but everyone took part in the full-pads workout Thursday.

The only players who were limited were Matthews, Jones and linebacker Nick Perry (wrist).

The Bears injury report was far more extensive.

They had seven players who did not take part in practice at all.

They were: end Jared Allen (illness), center Roberto Garza (ankle), receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle), linebacker Shea McClellin (hand), cornerback Sharrick McManis (thigh), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion) and guard Matt Slauson (ankle).

The Bears did not practice Wednesday after returning home late from a Monday night game against the New York Jets.

No worries: Until Sunday, running back Eddie Lacy had not fumbled since his fifth carry of his first professional game.

That’s 326 consecutive carries (including playoffs) without a fumble.

Lacy coughed it up on his second attempt against Detroit when he ran into the back of center Corey Linsley. The ball was returned 40 yards for a touchdown.

Running backs coach Sam Gash said he hasn’t spoken to Lacy about it.

“I’m not worried about Eddie being a fumbler, not by any stretch of the imagination,” he said. “He knows he’s a good ball carrier. He’s very secure with the ball.

“It hurt him more than it hurt anybody else. That’s the type of player he really is where it bothers him. And my job was to keep him coming back, and he came back and played fairly well in the game.”

Gash said there has been too much focus on Lacy for failures in the running game against the Lions. He said the entire offensive group has to shoulder the blame.

Packers Dujuan Harris

Today’s featured Mayfield Sports athlete is Packer’s running back DuJuan Harris (@Ol_sLy_Foxx on twitter). Harris was born on September 3rd, 1988 in Brooksville, Florida. While attending Central High in Brooksville, he rushed for more than 3,000 yards and 45 touchdowns. He also competed in track and weightlifting. Harris went on to college at Troy where he accumulated over 2,600 yards and 27 touchdowns rushing and over 550 yards and 5 touchdowns receiving.

After going undrafted in 2011, he was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars where he spent most of the season on the practice squad, but did play in their final 5 games. Harris was released by Jacksonville in August of 2012. After spending part of the 2012 season on Green Bay’s practice squad Harris played in the final 4 regular season games, 2 of which were starts. He also started both of the Packers playoff games where he tied a franchise record by having back-to-back playoff games with a rushing touchdown. Harris missed the whole 2013 season with a knee injury.

According to DuJuan, he played running back most of his life just because of his height which is only 5’7” now, but he was always built for the position. His favorite part of playing for the Packers is the way the organization is run; with tons of tradition, an awesome fan base, and the team has faith in their players.

If it wasn’t for football he says he’d be helping others, specifically juveniles, because it means a lot to help someone get on the right path and it creates a positive example for kids. His favorite color is black. Being given the nickname “Foxx” at birth because he had red hair, if he was an animal he would of course be a fox! Lastly if he had to describe himself in three words they would be: faith, because he hardly finds himself being worried; finisher, because he doesn’t like to start things he can’t finish; and affable because he is good spirited and easygoing.
