My Clemens joining us here in studio you do Michael I'm good and I'm very good how was camp man because you did not only did camp in the new through San Francisco in the mix for a family vacation. I thought the camp. Ran pretty smooth really I don't think that the Packers had. You know you look around the league and you see some of the unbelievable injuries you guys have even when you're under these CBA training camps one practice and rest and recovery I think it actually ran pretty smooth so when. In a McCarthy talked about that guy I just think in general is Grand Prix smooth. Going up against the challenges you have trying to team ready trying to evaluate players on the field. The physique calorie whether they can wrap up and tackling now but you know it's it's like Aaron said the other day to it's it's so much more mental now. It's so much more classroom. And then going out the fields he's been executed and are you spend that much time. Correcting on the field anymore it's just get through the reps get through the rest get through the wraps up two hours and forty minutes are up. Now let's go take a shower have some lunch and and then we'll talk about which did wrong today right. Then get in the film room so spring and a and then it's interesting because here you listen I was telling us last night to cigar and and you talk about a guy like Bill Belichick you listen his players they say we get on the field. And if you make a mistake he makes you do a ten more times. Mike McCarthy doesn't where you go out you do your thing and you go look at it twenty times under surface for you know I don't try to come out and fix it. The next day it is interesting to it's I've still. And I try to keep up with. Oh all of the technology we have for information but it's still interesting to see a guy who's hasn't even taken off your shoulder pads. He's got and I pat knees looking at. Mean that they get the video that pass to them and he's looking at the off point to a practice trying to figure out why miss that block grass team. Right the scrimmage that they had so. In general going into camp. At the start a camp with Darius Gunter was getting burned by every packer wide receiver. In the first couple days we talked about this guy was your number one mean. And then to various Randle Els suffers. An injury a concussion and Eagles game. And once again we're talking about some of the same more problems you had last December. That you have not solved and then Davone house goes down with a hamstring and mrs. Everything except last night he gets in for was a nine or ten snaps. Against the Rams so corner. There's been this you know huge concern and I've been talking about on the show. Day after day had a chance to talk one on one with Dom Capers. When he came out talked to me the other day and I said directed down. What are your concerns. Going up against Russell Wilson and Matty ice Ryan in the Falcons and Julio Jones and first two weeks of the season what are your concerns. At cornerback. Well aren't you know I think obviously we haven't had a chance to seed on because of his hamstring. Gene has me the most important thing with him as we have him healthy and in the season so you don't want a corner it's -- hamstring you know tendencies. I think we've got Kevin a lot of good reps. In Kevin's like any rookie you see his abilities show up. Mean he made a really nice play on the practice field today you know on the Raiders in a break you know ball so in saying thing and then in the Denver game you know I mean. You know he missed couple tackles that. But I think all that. So you you see Kevin's ability you know we just have to continue to work with him and he's got rolling speaking get up get his hands on people. I thought. The merits Randall you know played really well in the game that was encouraging to see him you'll get up and challenge receivers and you know again they got a contested ball in your own him but we didn't get any person you want to blitz we call them but it. You know I thought he tackled well you know on on AB's interception you know yet tight coverage coming down and the ball was. You know thrown over receivers head you know in the middle field so so that was in urgency and see indeed while and get a good performance in the third pre season game. And then you know we the other guys who gain some experience so. You know right now arguably had you know I think you know we've got more depth there you know with the addition of two on and with Kevin. And now it's just a matter if those guys working together. Okay so if we had to play the Falcons this weekend I. It's Davone how's the veteran and then to Marius Randall because they say he when he came back from injury had a really good game against the Broncos. So that's with the thing about it and it would be. It would be kind of on house and a Marius Randall. And then you number three guy might be the rookie Kevin King. Why was an in the game last night. Groin injury at practice. Who's you know if I mean they it's. It's it's just dumb founding what on the injuries. And the mistakes that this group is hand Josh Hawkins is a guy it's in his second year fast. Shorter than the rest the guys in the group. But the meaning he when he gets his opportunity last night based couple good plays and he has a couple of bone headed pass interference and one that he's trying to contest. You see guys it's I was talking about in the in the mini camp OK who's he undrafted guy that might cut through. And I like a guy man named him plenty Pitt can its number 41 physical little bit high a little bit you know bigger in terms of size that kind of close to what. 23 years ago was who Darius got to respect and who assist guy. Tall big and he just keeps on having a nose for the football any out of make in the team. So I thought maybe pimp is this guy did you see. The Redskins game in the second half this guys making some plays he starts picking up Redskins receivers by the waist and throwing and down round by the third time he did that they threw a flag just. Just bone headed stuff like that like. You know what dude you know you're this close to throw breaking through and then you're making these mental error and you're pulling your hairs out so I go to I capers and I said. So with all this. Revolving door of injuries like beat in in mistakes between Rollins who they put in the nickel last night. Did you see that they put him in the knee out to start a game up so that's kind of and I sent to dom you points when you play the the Seahawks. Opening day Lambeau Field whoever you start at corner. These two guys you've never taken a snap together in four pre season games. Can that be a problem. Know that happens sometimes I mean you just have to adjust and go with it you know we're gonna put out there what we fuels the best combination of guys. You know so to meet with the ball in the most -- thing is getting healthy so he's like opponent this season or you what you don't want is one here. When your top corners right with a hamstring issue you know and into the season. I think Gunter. You know is gonna make the cut last night and the interceptions some big plays aside there was interest in how much time he got. A guy that you know when you're number one and he is he he's out there. Still you know fighting for a job right and says some of these other guys the back in the corners but they really get that much of a look at. Somewhere where had a way to the fourth quarter get to feel you could see the frustration a lot of players as I said the tunnel and watched them. And you could see the frustration like. You know this is the fourth pre season game it rested 28 starters and I still only got about 78 snaps rights thing. Yeah and they predetermined I mean who they were really going to give time to usually get it implemented you could see that the roster was 99% made before Tuesday's. Listed as was adequate breaks entered bombing o's figure corporate welcome back onto some runs OK I wanna hear from him special teams specifically.

So Michael show continues double segments before you got here coming up in just couple minutes I want to yield a more about our charity event and if you're motorcycle Lister some and it's in the military. Please state to one tale of a more about and I can become involved. Coming up this Sunday and that's going to be coming averaged double Mets might Clemens joining us here in studio of medical serious radio and Micah. One of the other aspects of this team and and obviously with cut downs we'll talk specialties by the way. There's been a couple of guys had already been been let go by the Packers the running back at Khalifa Phillips. Is is gone he was let go and then the linebacker. David tally has been like oh. And then defensive back Dequan Holmes has also been let go but agreement packed in now. You know Phyllis is a guy that when they signed him was kind of exciting out of Charlotte bigger bodied guy but those other players you mentioned Mike Kelly these are guys were pretty much of the back of the line during the reps at practice yeah so that you know so there's only got a couple of Carrey's I mean I and it's like two carries last night you probably carry more balls you know in and a bag walking out the practice field to bring him out for the rest of running backs a needed day balls and I also strange about last night's game it's like OK here's some of these guys that I I've seen handle flash from time to time and in this one guy I've talked about. It's Monta Crockett number nine men. Can ran a 429. And a New Orleans come line. I Som. There's nobody that can catch it I swear if they could get one football -- over the middle he would of flash and had some 75 yard run. But you know a case and hill out there at quarterback. He he was playing a shorter game looking for a play you know passes over the middle this guy never got his opportunity and as as well as last night so. We'll see what happens those are there's a soldiers some of these players like herb waters. With speed that we'll bring back a second year because they need a signal to learn more about the game but anyway you're you're you mentioned about special teams. And so last night as I watch the game up a point you know. A lot of what I see here is I'm really watching who's Macon the special teams particularly in the first half the game last night is that's an indication. The guys that are right maybe you're the fifth or six corner or receiver or. You know way back in the depth chart but if your lineup in one of the first groups special teams and means that they've got a spot for you know one of these line members ex center. As this team keeps on shifting they can have seven receivers how deeper they gonna go defensive back they're down to only three inside linebackers. You know you gonna have bodies on the field. For kick return. For a punt coverage in all variety of players and is as the make up of the roster keeps on shifting. Know you use and mortar Burnett is an inside linebacker certificate it's got to be a nightmare. As you're trying to get ready now for Seattle to figure out who. What kind of bodies tree in half for special teams' and last runs that is that a challenge for you. Well yeah it shifts because you big smaller faster you know so it you know it says something that Jason. We talk about it probably more than you know anybody except maybe head coach because we're constantly okay. Coming up scenarios if this happens if that happens. We get a give him when you get mixed you get playing time of The Who we got to make sure we see. And certain positions because this could happen and a lot of it real. Doesn't ever come to fruition but on the same token you're trying to. Put do you give guys experience give guys reps in places where they could end up. And and I think that's just you know once again it's it's. He's you know you're gonna have eleven players and you just gotta you gotta it's our job to get them in the right places and play with them the highest level. Parties Trevor Demi is Trevor Davis he locked in your punt returner and then chipped Jazz locked in as your kick returner. Yeah I think so I wonder if if they have though Gordon Randall Cobb to start and then but they respected Davis had a big 68 yard return he's shown the speed he's showing improvement as a wide receiver. But that he has them you know after having a great game the week before he has the muffed punt first time out. Where he's he's probably not paying attention to the traffic has come and Adam and he should a fair caught the football. And he gives it up and a fumble and McCarthy kept it and but I asked Ron's up. It does is trafford neighbors is going to be your punt return does he need to be more conservative does indeed need to think about field position and fair catch. Before bone port for the return. Well you know. That's you know it's like in defense of back in the sense of and you get you kind of deal what do. You gotta deal play on the itch and and you know possibly want taking chances and and I think the more. The more experience who gets the better he'll be at that and and a the one that he did drop a mean it was really probably should affair got and he and I say it was trying to make something happen. I think that you know you don't want to take that away from either and and and I think he you know as he matures he'll he'll be better and better at it. Just a once again you know one thing he's got he's got a lot of ability like it like seems. I'm excited about the the special teams ML maybe you are actually some returns the other question mark then becomes. On this team when you talk about numbers is quarterbacks and Joseph Callahan obviously is a guided their familiar with trees and no really kind of came on. Too they keep three doing only keep to try to put one on the practice squad obviously so. You know I did I think Jason hit Jason Hill excelled and ended up grabbing that job. At a joke at least he was maybe I should say this now thinking about it maybe is it one the most biggest surprises of training camp. Because Joseph Kelly has a guy who flash did blaster during the pre season McCarthy liked him. I get picked up by the Saints and a one other team. And the minute that that he was free they brought him right back to Green Bay and then Panama's roster spot as they thought that number six. You know has showed showed some spark in the offense. Case in hell when we were this spring during rookie orientation and then the mini camps and OTA's. Just look like a guy that you know out there to help get through the practice of the fourth quarterback out there a camp arm if you'll. And then again in the fourth quarter against the Eagles game and just said. And I want to hack just let it roll. And he played loose and he played great and he showed his Atlanta schism. And he just did look like a guy there was swimming in the playbook and going to installments is just out there having fun. And then he puts together this winning drive against of the Redskins. And this guy who is spark and I'll tell you I agree with what you're talking about with Paul in the girl it is our. So sure Brett how we had as good of a camp as he shouldn't write I'm not sure that he is an both in practice. And in which you saw in his snaps in the games as moon there's a couple mistakes equalled overthrown balls in a miscommunication. I that was a huge drop I Lansky Hendricks last night. Which no. He's been so much more consistent and on the same page with on. Nevertheless how many Asian amateur how everything. Came in tourniquet. There's a large era so homily will be the number two quarterback case and hell really came on I think he's really impressed that's got to be a tough decision to say. Do we keep a mile as a third string quarterback. I can we hire him on the practice squad I think if year's Super Bowl team just go with two quarterbacks and if hills on the practice squad gets picked up by some meals whatever. One ever but he he beat out Joseph Callahan who now suddenly finds himself knowing he could be on the street. And he's you know waiting for that dreaded phone call to come and turn here you play. You just don't wait around for a call it good or bad. It's gonna got to be ready by or found. And you know it's it's on the stressful side. He threatens to take your mind off hitters. Yet now I mean I'm I'm not just sitting on the couch all day waiting out you know I'll I'll try to do stuff. You know those guys demon. Tennis who happens. Deadline 3 o'clock in the afternoon so then you go from Joseph Callahan to say the running backs and of the running backs have proven to be. I don't want to say average below average about Eric issues that nobody really stood out I think Aaron Jones probably played about the best we know the time and comers going to be a guy. But the fifth round draft choice of Aaron Jones I think he ended up being. A little bit more flash to we have is that a good assessment. Our way here the concern is this is time and gummery injuries right you know he had devastating ankle injuries a wide receiver. He's got this soft tissue injury whatever that was high ankle sprain for a couple weeks in the middle camp. You saw how's he was so excited when you have like a 25 yard run against the Broncos came up and throwing his arms around because I was like yeah fine you know write it kind of broke through. But that's you know go go with him but Jamal Williams. You know just average in two or three yards per carry in all of his opportunities the first running back that they tuck but Aaron Jones is the guy that's cut through not only. With and and and you know decent round returns last forty yards on eight carries average in six charge per carry. To kick off returns that added up to 43 yards and you seem on the first team special teams. He showed versatility and I talked him about I think I think you earned a spot on the roster. I feel comfortable with what I did but a notice most of them live. But they into the death like you had to do. Pass protection some carries. But really catches most balls on the back field. And in some of the biggest plays for the running back from this pre season. Obviously a check downs of an open a lot of times they just forget about running backs in the flats and taking on the quarterbacks do a great job finding him. Really wide open and it's easy to pick up yours alone in the U wide open at the start of the game you're there on the kickoff coverage team as well. Special teams that's been in case just as much scrutiny as your running back snaps. Yes you've got to contribute wherever you can and however I can and it may be special teams. I'll get out there rundown fast elected and to somebody so. Hmmm you're just gonna do whatever it takes to make the roster you please you. Miss. Yes we tackle in the zone but the hopes. So that's the running back situation Cleve Phillips already cut. And you get to wide receiver that's one there a reason asking me about you know Janice out there taken a lot of reps last night. I think all those guys are common back and then on that on the bubble who's going to be that six or seven guy. Could it be Michael Clark the guy he's six foot six who didn't get any snaps last are they hide him for the practice squad or. You know he had asked or a guy like Randall Cobb who was the most impressive but these new. Undrafted receivers or even with the draft picks in training camp I thought this was an interesting answer from Randle. For me. I mean you have to be next McCaffery injuries. He's shown up every day he's done everything right he's. He's answered all the questions write a meeting rooms these days practice really hard. He's played well in the games that he's got a great canceled or. That's number thirteen and he did catch everything thrown his way I don't know if he's got enough speed or size. It is to pass sub De'Angelo Yancey who I think will will make the cut. But that means another set another drafting Alec I Dupree who got. In a ship to the hospital for getting drilled by a Trace Sullivan. In the Eagles game he says you only remember the hit he does remember with putting a thumbs up he did he only remembers waking up to the sound of the ambulance taking him to hospital. He's now knows that his phone call his phone could ring today. Dante's and I've been talking we've had a lot recently or was it. We do now what I'll Boehner is especially now from a 920 numbers in the next couple you know days so calm. You know you can you just got to you know just approach these nights over days as is relies that you left everything out there that you couldn't on you know it is not whereabouts some. You know just be hopeful if you don't get that call so this will wrap things up when we come back more than my Clement residence. This. Granite studio in my clemens' medical serious radio reminded but the motorcycle ride coming up this weekend but Michael. Little bit more with Ted Thompson out you know. The question is this and Mike McCarthy was tired about I gonna go through GPS that have on players and all the health information. They they're stacked with so much science about these players. I asked Ted Thompson. Can you imagine what it you did and make decisions on scouting a player 25 years ago. How much different is that with all this data you have today. Yes that's a very hasn't changed that much to have good gathering of the information. Disseminate that information and direction and up and doing all that. It is it's what you're you're referring to. Doug. Those are those are tools. Those are tools Bruins. Try to make better decisions. Did in the past. Vote goes through you yesterday and the same gut feelings that you 22 mice or call shall we. The special is yours up. They're not anybody that would do it. Those who Rick and then. Do while their little scary you relishing and because you through more old school. That he threw them. We pull you know rival who's graded. He didn't gesture and projected or whatever it was it was a long time ago. And bra and throwing soon touched on some. He's thrown over there to try to win humans you know to go through. This is what it looks like scale. So. You're always charged. Evaluate nutrient there's a lot of your boys do and we use all those schools and we've through. What we weren't allowed to prove your word for him you know it's quarter. We did you have to make their calls the then go Ted Thompson thanks Mike appreciated hope to see at the motorcycle ride 8 AM to 10 AM on Sunday morning Greenfield high school and then we ride for the Fisher house Wisconsin time for us to go have a go and so. Joseph Porter. Michael's.
