Preseason Pressure Cooker Starts for Packers

With training camp winding down and the preseason kicking off tonight, the pressure to perform will be enormous for those vying for roster spots.

The pressure is on as the Green Bay Packers begin the preseason tonight at New England.

There are only seven practices remaining in training camp. Most of them will be in preparation for the remaining preseason games, meaning the truly competitive part of training camp is over.

“The preseason, the actual games are huge, and we want them to be,” general manager Ted Thompson said on Tuesday. “We want them to know that it’s huge and to be under a certain amount of pressure to perform.”

With the playbook installed, it’s time for the players to show what they’ve learned and prove they are good enough to play in the NFL. What the coaches think they know might be tossed aside in these four preseason games.

“Time and time again, you’ll see young players that have a rough time in the first 10 days of training camp because it’s a different installation every day and then they kind of catch their groove hopefully near the end,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “It happens every year where you go to play a game and some guys play better than you think they would and some guys don’t play as good. It will happen all through the preseason. Hopefully, it doesn’t happen very much during the regular season.”

Ultimately, it will be Thompson’s decision on who survives the cutdown to 53 on Sept. 5. Making a few splash plays certainly will help. It goes beyond that, though. The players need to earn the trust of McCarthy and his staff if they’re going to get a chance to contribute during the regular season.

“I think the whole thing kind of adds up to how it turns out at the end,” Thompson said. “From a coaching standpoint, certainly the missed assignment and that sort of thing is very, very crucial and huge in terms of evaluating their promise for our team. I don’t focus so much on the assignments because sometimes I’m not sure what the assignments are myself. I’m looking for them to run fast and do good things as opposed to trying to figure out who’s supposed to go in this direction.”
