Scott Wells gets Packers linemen together for workouts

Super Bowl XLV Getty Images

Though Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has yet to round up his wideouts for lockout workouts, the man who snaps Rodgers the ball has taken the bull by the horns.

Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that center Scott Wells organized three days of workouts for a total of eight Packers offensive linemen, including starters Chad Clifton and Josh Sitton.  The sessions were conducted in Franklin, Tennessee.

“A couple of guys had called me and I think were stressed out over the offseason uncertainty and not seeing each other,” Wells said.  “They expressed that they wanted to get together, do some football drills and talk shop.

“It’s been tough.  You’re used to seeing the same guys every day.  Now, you don’t see them and don’t know when you’re going to see them again.”

Though Wells said that he hopes the lockout ends sooner rather than later, the Packers are one of the few teams that would benefit from a short period to prepare for the 2011 season, given that they played into February and that they have most of their players returning.  Indeed, it will be easier for the Packers to get back to the Super Bowl if the Packers and their 31 competitors ultimately are forced to slap together preparations for the season on the fly.

    Loved the Sherrod pick.

    Now lets take the whole team on a field trip to Minnasota to watch a bunch of losers try to prepare for another failure of a season.

  3. shaggytoodle says: Jun 1, 2011 3:42 PM

    Hopefully they will do thier part and help balance the Packers offense by opening more holes in the run game.

  4. orangeflh says: Jun 1, 2011 3:48 PM

    That’s where you’re wrong, clay. They don’t prepare for another losing season. Those boneheads actually think they’re going to win something. That’s why it’s so sweet when reality comes rushing in and breaks their little, purple, hearts.

    Interesting that the article mentioned nothing about Minnesota yet you bring it up. If MN is a loser team that means it should be of no concern to you yet you bring them up. Why? Same goes for everyone on the Packers side who bashes the Vikings. Truly, they must be of some concern if you constantly bring them up. Oh and by the way…they arent training in MN. Ponder has a few players with him down in FL.

    How many “so-so” gets players from “Insert team name here” gets X number of players together for workout stories are we going to get?

    Starting to get rather repetitive and somewhat redundant. We understand they are trying to get together to workout, great , awesome.

    How about getting together with the owners to negotiate a new deal so they can stop playing in sandlots and get back to work. Otherwise they are going to be playing all their football on the weekends and after work like most working Americans.

    It’s always the Viking fans yapping THEIR gums, yet two of the first four posts on this story were ripping the Vikings out of nowhere. But thanks for the “appoligee.”

    they will be “working out” at the local dennys

    First off I want to say I’m a Packers fan born and raised in Wisconsin.

    Second I want to say clayjhawk, orangeflh, bjorntorock you make all Packer fans look bad. For starters learn how to spell and once you do that quit bashing the Vikings. Who cares what they or their fans do! No one is on here right now bashing the Packers. Every single one of you make Packer fans look classless. You guys are like the little kids “Well he did it first!” Last I checked we won it all last year! Let’s celebrate that instead of acting like 12 year old brats. You can’t talk about another organization being classless when your comments on here make us look classless.

    And finally clayjhawk, orangeflh, bjorntorock why don’t all 3 of you do the rest of us Packer fans a favor and just shut up!

    Apology my a$$…

    @Contra: The Vikings are a loser team. They are not necessarily a concern as much as they are of interest because they’re in our division and we play them twice per season.

    Packer fans bring them up because we love, as fans of the Super Bowl Champions, to trash talk the fans of the other teams in our division that are not champions. It’s how fans roll, (but it’s okay if you don’t understand that).

    @Phantom: Damm straight we rip the Vikes out of nowhere, deal with it.

    When their suckhole team actually manages to win a Super Bowl (stop laughing) then they get to trash talk too, until then they need to set their nose to the grindstone and focus on the important things in life, like trying to climb out of the cellar and beat the Lions for third place in the division…**snicker**

    ————————————————–
    Contra….is Ponder…”pondering passing” at the above referenced workout? Did he check with the ol’ gunslinger on proper follow throughs and how to sext sideline reporters?

    Just curious…carry on.

    You see Contra….it’s called schadenfraude…reveling in another’s misfortunes. Simple as that. You took full advantage of this in 2009 when the ol’ gunslinger was getting your collective hopes up…marching through the division….only to puke all over the silver platter your team was handed that year. Now it is our turn……

  13. granadafan says: Jun 1, 2011 5:36 PM

    Since offensive lines are key to making an offense go, this unit, more than any, needs to be on the same page and be able to trust each other. Getting them together to practice and bond can only yield positive results.

  14. pacificamjr says: Jun 1, 2011 5:46 PM

    maybe Chewy can baby sit the wives and kids while the players practice????

  16. goombar2 says: Jun 1, 2011 5:49 PM

    For guys constantly crying, why do Packer fans post in threads about the vikings… We now see them here posting in a Packer related thread. There’s a big part of me that believes the only things viking fans enjoy is whining… The refs stole that Super Dome game… Whaaa…

    Anyway, I don’t know if I like these workouts. I’d hate to see these guys get injured and without coaches I don’t see the benefit. It’s their lives I suppose.

    As far as Im concerned louderthanwords1 is a classy Packer fan. Everyone else is just a child with a keyboard.

    Way to act like a fan of a championship team. All I hear is that the Packers and their fans are unique in their own but this is how you live up to that? Let the adults speak on this site, just sit back and watch so you can learn a thing or two about class.

  18. danimalk82 says: Jun 1, 2011 5:59 PM

    I’m sick of all the Vikings smack! Just stop it already!

    …. They’re called Vi-QUEENS.

    To those looking for class, look for it elsewhere. This is an anonymously submitted comments website, you won’t find class here… period. If people started using class with their comments, I wouldn’t read them. If I want a vanilla opinion I’ll listen to Bryant Gumble, I’m reading comments from the average moron because I think half of this crap is hilarious, whether it was intended that way or not.

    That’s all I have to say about that.

    @bjorntorock –

    It’s spelling, not grammar.

    Class, class, class, you people make it sound like the NFL is an upper-echelon English Tea Party where only the most noble are invited.

    It’s called trash talk my noble, refined gentlemen, it’s how we roll.

    But hey, you guys enjoy the NFL your way. When you win or lose feel free to gently pat the other team’s fans on the back and whisper “good show old sport!” while dining on your tea & cookies. The rest of us will be engaging in our own good natured smack talk with the fans from other teams and taking their smack talk in stride.

    I now return you to your lecture on “class,” already in progress…

  21. goombar2 says: Jun 1, 2011 7:34 PM

    When Contra thinks you’re classy you REALLY need help!

    Hey Loudmouther, we don’t need a Mommy on these boards. So if you don’t like something, ignore it. Mentioning it only makes it worse. And these vike fans more than have earned all the crap they get.

    Don’t think so? Just ask Saints fans about your new buddy Contra and viking fans.

  22. packerbacker12 says: Jun 1, 2011 8:00 PM

    Wow you Viking fans are such big babies. How about you people grow up and take the trash-talk like men instead of whining about it all the time.

    Gee it no’s wonder everyone hates Viking ‘fans’.

  23. kennyrogerschicken says: Jun 1, 2011 8:09 PM

    contra74 –

    So you bark at a Packer fan posting in a Viking story, and then you bark at a Packer fan posting in a Packer story as well?

    Get a grip and accept the fact that fans of both teams will always trash each other. If this bothers you so much don’t read the comments. Maybe then you’ll stop whining about Packer fans trashing your terrible team.

    Watch out! Next comes the devastating rebuttal of “sticks and stones”. It’s a tough world out there buttercup.

  25. cleonslamminsalmon says: Jun 1, 2011 9:26 PM

    All Vikes fans did after the ’09 season was talk trash. Now it’s just terrible. Maybe because in retrospect, you guys didn’t really do anything in the ’09 season. Especially after watching us win a little something called the Super Bowl. You guys are some whiney little girls.

  26. cleonslamminsalmon says: Jun 1, 2011 9:27 PM

    Also, Vikes fans…How come you don’t ask Packer fans anymore what they think about Favre wearing purple? oops.

  27. schemefactory says: Jun 1, 2011 9:34 PM

    i’m pretty sure that no matter what smack is talked about the vikings, their team is going to suck next year and for years to come and the packers will be awesome for years to come. that’s all that really matters.

  28. danimalk82 says: Jun 2, 2011 5:26 PM

    At the end of the day the Vikings have purple jerseys… PURPLE. People often lose sight of how hilarious that is.

  29. brewdogg says: Jun 2, 2011 7:21 PM

    See, here’s the thing…. Trash talk is fun when it is original and creative. Are old, worn-out insults really what you are all here for? Do you come here because you need your daily dose of “Erin Rodgers”, “TT is gay”, “Green Gay Fudgepackers” and the like? Come with a good one and it will be appreciated.

    And BTW…. Historically, purple has been considered a regal color, the color of royalty. The Lakers wear purple, is that funny as well? Whatever….. But it does segue into a recent observation.

    I have long struggled with where I have seen the particular shade of green that the Packers employ, but this spring I finally realized it. It is the color of newly formed leaves, the fresh sprouts on trees and bushes that signal the coming of spring. As they mature, they become a deeper shade of green. There’s a joke in there, and I’ll be happy to explain it to you when you get up to Eagles’ green.

  30. goombar2 says: Jun 2, 2011 10:47 PM

    Purple is also the color of the dress my prom date wore… A woman who stood up in my sister’s wedding also wore purple…

    So when I think of purple, I don’t think of kings… I think of women I had my way with. Kinda like the Pack had their way with the vikings last year… Is it a coincedence they wear purple too? I dunno….

  31. brewdogg says: Jun 3, 2011 10:17 AM

    Nice comeback…. Ironically, in 3 of the 4 proms I went to, my date had a green dress. Not Packer green, that doesn’t show up very well under fluorescent lights, but still…..
