Episode 41 - Who's Impressing So Far?

Blue 58 goes beyond the headlines to help you become a smarter fan of the Green Bay Packers. Hosted by former WTMJ newscaster Jon Meerdink and his friend Gary Zilavy, Blue 58 brings you a unique, upbeat perspective on your favorite NFL team, as long as that team is the Packers.

This week on Blue 58, the Packers are already down a draft pick, Ty Montgomery looks primed to contribute at running back, and we’ve got t-shirts for you to vote on. On top of that, training camp is actually underway, so who’s doing well?

Here are the headlines we discussed this week on Blue 58.

Montravius Adams Out 'Multiple Weeks'

The Packers third round pick was making an impact in the defensive line group, but now he's on the sidelines for several weeks. How could this affect the Packers?

Introducing Run Percentage

We have a new specialty stat to talk about this week: run percentage. This metric tries to measure how often a player is going to run for a particular amount of yards, which gives us a better idea of how he's producing than just yards per carry alone.

The Power Sweep T-Shirt Contest

We've come up with three t-shirt designs for you to vote on! Balloting runs through next week with the winning design to be produced for your consumption for two weeks. Vote today!
