The premier of Manitoba says there's a
"lot of disappointment" from the Packers-Raiders exhibition game that was played on an 80-yard field because of safety concerns.Brian Pallister acknowledged during a campaign stop Friday that it "didn't work out the way they wanted." But he added that "organizers tried to do something that hadn't been done before Adrian Amos Jersey , so let's give them respect and credit for trying."The game Thursday night was played on a shortened field because of the turf in the end zones. The league also eliminated kickoffs.Oakland defeated Green Bay 22-21 on a field goal by Daniel Carlson with eight seconds left. The Packers did not dress 33 players, including Aaron Rodgers. The Raiders withheld most starters, including quarterback Derek Carr and receiver Antonio Brown.Attendance was 21,992 at 33,000-seat IG Field. Canadian-based On Ice Entertainment Ltd. was the promoter.This was the first NFL game in Canada since the Buffalo Bills completed a series of games in Toronto in 2013. The edge in Green Bay will consist of larger bodies this year than in 2018, which should make Mike Pettine happy." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTOne thing that the Green Bay Packers prioritized this offseason was getting bigger up front on defense. General manager Brian Gutekunst mentioned this when discussing the team’s draft class over the weekend, and it’s clear that between the free agent acquisitions and the team’s first draft pick in 2019 Billy Turner Jersey , he accomplished that.A quick look at the measurement differences between the three new arrivals and the two departed veterans shows this clearlyInZa’Darius Smith: 6-foot-4, 272 poundsPreston Smith: 6-foot-5, 265 poundsRashan Gary: 6-foot-5, 277 poundsOutClay Matthews: 6-foot-3, 255 poundsNick Perry: 6-foot-3, 265 poundsThe players coming in this offseason average nearly 6-foot-4 and just over 270 pounds, compared to 6-foot-3 Za’Darius Smith Jersey , 260 as the midpoint between Matthews and Perry. That’s a notable size difference alone, but arm length is an added factor as well. Both Preston Smith and Rashan Gary have arms at or just over 34 inches, while Perry (33) and Matthews (32-1/4) fell a fair amount short of that mark. (Za’Darius Smith falls in between the two departed veterans at 32-5/8.)These additions will also likely help the Packers’ interior pass rush. All three can pitch in on occasion with their hands on the ground in obvious passing situations, hopefully causing some havoc among opposing offensive linemen both inside and outside.Of course, the team still retains a handful of players. Kyler Fackrell (6-foot-5, 245), Reggie Gilbert (6-foot-3 Jermaine Whitehead Jersey , 261), and Kendall Donnerson (6-foot-3, 249) will come back for another to in training camp at least. All of those players are either leaner — in Fackrell’s case) or shorter than the newcomers. However, the reasonable expectation is that all of these players, or at least whichever ones make the 53-man roster, will be reserves, playing only on a rotational basis or in case of injury to one of the three new arrivals.Overall Antonio Morrison Jersey , though, Mike Pettine has larger athletes to work with on the edge in his second year as the Packers’ defensive coordinator, something he will surely be pleased about. Whether aligned inside or outside, these new additions should bring a new dynamic to the defense in 2019.
