With the injury of Jordy Nelson and the upcoming matches this NFL season, the Packers have been actively finding ways to replenish the loss left by the wide receiver. But three weeks into the season, he had only 14 receptions for 126 yards.
Will either team have enough to overtake the Packers in the division? The Lions finished 11-5 and made the playoffs as a wild card. But smart Packers fans are not freaking out about Nelson’s loss. That was met with a backlash on social media, with actor Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin in “The Office”, calling Quin and “a moron” and “absurd” for suggesting “God had it out for Jordy“.
Aaron Rodgers wants to see more.
“I’m a player, so I never root or cheer when a guy gets hurt”.
“I hated Jordy got hurt, but in my beliefs, and the way I believe, it was – God meant for Jordy to get hurt”, Quin told MLive.com and the Detroit Free-Press on Monday.
Yes, he’s 38 and not the Randy Moss he once was, but we don’t know how good he can actually be with Rodgers throwing to him until we actually see him out on the field in a Packers uniform. “For a guy to get hurt and take away a whole year, it’s big for his career”. McCarthy said he wants to get through the full week of practice, which concludes on Friday, before making final decisions. “I’m not saying all that”.
“They’re a great organization”. I can do whatever they need me to do. Can he make the transition of being a 7th round pick out of a division two schools, to being an impact receiver on heavily favorited NFL team?
There’s a huge void to fill in the Packers’ potent offence with Nelson sidelined for the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee on Sunday during a pre-season game in Pittsburgh.
Nelson was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s preseason game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh. It’s a very unfortunate injury, seeing as how Nelson was taking part in a “meaningless” game when it took place.
The rookie Mykkele Thompson was lost last week when he sustained an Achilles’ tendon injury against Cincinnati. Neither injury appears to be long-term. The season hasn’t even begun yet and he’s faced with a dilemma that has nothing to do with Olivia Munn.
Lions coach Jim Caldwell defended Quin’s comments on Tuesday and called football “a microcosm of society” when it comes to dealing with people emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Veteran players would likely be in favor of at least a reduced preseason slate, something less than the current four games. They happened in the team’s early games. And you can’t treat them like pheasants under glass, either.
“Injuries are going to happen”.
