Green Bay Packer comes to support Toys for Tots in Escanaba

The Toys for Tots campaign is off to a good start  in Ecanaba this year. The goal is make sure every child in need in that area has toys under the tree come Christmas morning - and the first day of the push for toys got a lot of people to donate thanks to Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House. Outside the Walmart this evening members of  Escanaba Public Safety, Marine Corp. Reserve and other dignitaries greeted people who filed inside. If they bought a toy and put it in the toys for tots bin they could then say hello to Packers cornerback Davon House. A lot of good cheer tonight by everyone who wants to make this happy holiday for the less privileged. 

Davon House, Packers cornerback, said, "What I get out of it, I love children anything that's dealing with children, I'm there so, Mark gave me a call told me that they are looking for a player to come out here help out and I was willing to do it."

Christine Baur, Store Manager, said, "It is amazingly gratifying. I'm a mom, I was a single mom so I know how hard it is when you don't have something for your children on Christmas so this is a way to give something back to our local community and make sure all the children of Delta County wake up to a great Christmas."

Now even though this was a good start everyone connected with toys for tots says they will need your generosity right up until Christmas, so please make a donation if you can.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Gilbert Brown, Former Green Bay Packer Motivational Speaking

Former defensive lineman Gilbert Brown will be talking sports, football, the Packers, cars and other topics on his new "Gravediggers Radio" starting Oct. 7.

iHeartMedia and Mayfield Sports Marketing adds former Packer Gilbert Brown to sports talk lineup

When it comes to covering all things related to the Green Bay Packers, content is king.

Between the Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay media markets, there is a large enough of an audience that simply cannot be over-served Packers content, that many outlets seem to do whatever is possible to set itself apart from its peers.

The latest to get involved is WOKY-AM 920.

iHeartMedia (the new name for Clear Channel stations) and former NFL player Gilbert Brown will launch "Gravedigger Radio" at 6 p.m. on Oct. 3.

"First I want to thank iHeartMedia for letting me bring my brand of sports talk to their listeners. I am so excited to be able to have my own show! Gravedigger Radio gives me the chance to be myself and to share my knowledge of football, sports and life with the fans," Brown said.

Brown played defensive line for the Green and Gold, earning the nick-name the Grave Digger, for his ability to get tackles and figuratively burry his opponents.

This season, his hour-long program will run on The Big 920 in Milwaukee, on 1070 AM and 100.9 FM in Madison, on 1400 AM in Eau Claire and will be streamed through the iHeartRadio digital app.

"Our whole staff is excited to have Gilbert Brown joining us," said Regional Market Manager Jeff Tyler. "To have a Super Bowl winner and Packers Hall of Famer on our team adds something special to our exciting sports talk line up on The Big 920 in Milwaukee and The Big 1070 and 100.9FM in Madison! Gilbert's love of football, sports, cars and how he gives back through his many charitable associations is truly unique and we know fans will love the show. Welcome The Gravedigger."

"Gravedigger Radio" is a joint venture with Mayfield Sports Marketing.

Packers Corey Linsley earns Packers' trust and perhaps a permanent starting job

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Corey Linsley needs no reminder that one of Aaron Rodgers' greatest throws -- maybe even the best one the Green Bay Packers quarterback has ever made -- did not count because of his mistake.

"Believe me, I know that," Linsley said Friday with a guilty smile. "I've watched it many a time and felt embarrassed many a time."

Cory Linsley

Linsley

But here's the beauty of Linsley, the Packers' rookie center: Four days after his holding penalty wiped out an acrobatic throw in the face of pressure that would have been a ridiculous 34-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 28, Linsley made sure to disengage from Minnesota Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph before he could be flagged again and another touchdown -- this one a 66-yarder to Jordy Nelson -- could be wiped out.

"That's a credit to him because he's learning from his mistakes," Packers offensive line coach James Campen said this week.

Not that there have been many of those. But it's one of the reasons Campen and coach Mike McCarthy are likely to stick with Linsley as their starter even after JC Tretter comes off the temporary injured reserve list. Tretter spent all offseason and most of training camp being groomed as the starter until a knee injury in the third preseason game forced Linsley, a fifth-round pick from Ohio State, into action without any preseason snaps with Rodgers.

"He's one of those guys as a rookie that came in here and you knew right away he belonged," McCarty said of Linsley. "First day of pads, it was like, 'Hey man, this guy, he's a powerful young man.' So he fit right in. That's why I was never worried about him."

Tretter is eligible to begin practicing on Monday and could play on Nov. 9 against the Bears, but the Packers may not need him given how entrenched Linsley appears.

"I will say this: If things keep going the way they're going, I think we’ll look back on this start as probably one of the most impressive situations that a young player has stepped up and performed in my time here," McCarthy said. "And we've had a lot of guys step up."

And there's little or no reason to use any caveat in this case. Linsley has not allowed a sack or a quarterback hit, according to Pro Football Focus. In PFF's run-game rankings, he graded out as the second-highest lineman on the Packers roster behind only left guard Josh Sitton. And for all NFL centers this season, Linsley's run-blocking grade ranks tied for eighth.

Perhaps more importantly, he has gained Rodgers' trust. And that trust went up another notch after Linsley's block on Nelson's 66-yard touchdown catch against the Vikings.

"There's often an unsung hero, and it's always fun to be able to highlight those guys," Rodgers said this week on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show. "In this case, it was Corey doing a nice job of keeping his feet moving and running his defender past the play and allowing me to throw from a clean spot. That's when you get touchdowns."

So what will the Packers do with Tretter? The former collegiate tackle at Cornell has yet to play in an NFL regular-season game. He missed all of last season because of an ankle injury but looked comfortable in the offseason and in his three preseason starts at center.

Perhaps Tretter could go back to tackle, where the Packers may have some roster turnover in the offseason given that starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga and backup tackle Derek Sherrod both are in the final seasons of their contracts.

"When he gets back out there and they clear him to go," Campen said pausing for a moment, "I don't even want to answer that question."

Linsley's play may have answered that for him.

Oconomowoc Mourns the loss of Tom Synder "Mr. Oconomowoc."

Very few people do we meet in our lives that make such an impact on you that you never forget meeting them. I am a Indiana native that moved to Wisconsin several years ago. As anyone, moving to a new place with a new job was a little stressful. So after arriving in Oconomowoc I met Tom Synder. The first time I met him we talked for about 30 minutes and I'll never forget it. Tom lived five lifetimes in one. Later on I learned of his past business, travels and more about him. He will be missed by friends, family, Oconomowoc and anyone who ever met him.

Oct. 3, 2014

Tom Snyder, 85, former Oconomowoc business owner and lifelong philanthropist, died Oct. 3 at University Hospital in Madison, from complications after heart surgery.

His death leaves a void in the community he loved so much.

It seems only fitting somehow that his heart would be the cause of death, as it was surely the cause of a life well-lived.

Deeply loved and respected, the lifelong Oconomowoc resident was always eager to help a worthy cause, or lift someone's day with a kind word and a smile and that irrepressible twinkle in his blue eyes. He was a bon vivant, a generous host, an incredible storyteller and a party planner extraordinaire. You did not leave his company without a smile on your face.

Snyder was also a successful businessman, running a clothing store in downtown Oconomowoc that his father started and that drew a strong local following as well as some celebrity clientele. That included famed Marquette University coach Al McGuire, who superstitiously believed one of the suits he purchased from Snyder was "lucky" and wore it throughout Marquette's national championship season in 1977.

After the store's 112 years of service to the community, Snyder closed the shop in 1996 and retired.

Longtime friend Maureen Stapleton notified friends via email early Friday of the news of Snyder's passing.

"At 1 a.m. the twinkle in Tom Snyder's eyes were extinguished," she wrote. "An expert team of surgeons worked on that heart for hours — but it was too difficult to save him. As you all knew Tom, please remember him with that smiling face and beautiful blue eyes — that's how he would want it."

Fellow Rotarian Sarah Williams-Berg was saddened to learn of Snyder's death.

"A bygone era — If you were sitting next to Tom Snyder at any event, you were in for tall tales, laughter and a wild historical ride. He could pick up on any dialogue and put his own historical spin on it. He was like a walking timeline. He demanded and earned your attention every time you asked him a question," she recalled.

"He was the last of the great gentlemen, appreciative, thoughtful and generous. When Tom threw a party, it was a party to remember. When Tom offered his own patented rambling repartee, you knew it came from great intellectual depth. We sat next to him at Rotary Monday. Over lunch, he offered insights on everything from the old corner drugstore to helping to eradicate polio worldwide. His Oconomowoc presence will be everlasting," Williams-Berg added.

Snyder attended Marquette University for two years before graduating from the University of Notre Dame in 1951. He then enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving as a pilot.

Upon completion of his service in the armed forces, he went to work for a medical supply company in Maine until returning to Oconomowoc to take over the family clothing store.

Younger brother Pat Snyder, a retired circuit court judge, marveled at his expertise with the store.

"He was president of the National Junior Men's Wear Association of the United States and traveled extensively and was instrumental in developing inventory management programs for retailers before there were computers.

"He retired in 1996 and has been Mr. Oconomowoc ever since. He was on every board and anywhere he could help and a friend to all. Everyone should have a brother like Tom. He was the most generous person I have ever met in my life," he recalled.

Niece Megan Welsh echoed that sentiment and remembered how he celebrated his family.

"I can't tell you how many friends in the course of my life called him 'Uncle Tom.' It was an endearing term for a man who was loved like family by so many. Growing up, Tom never had children of his own but he had 14 nieces and nephews who he called his own. I was blessed to be one of them. He had secrets and special stories with all of us, nicknames and jokes," she said.

"He taught us to love the community where we live and to care about each other. He held 'cousins parties' to make sure that we spent quality time together and that we would always be there for each other. He took an interest in all of us and our families. He taught our kids to drink champagne (some of them were even legal). He taught us to use our china and crystal and live life. One night he had everyone make a wish, spin around and throw glasses in the fireplace. He was full of life.

"He was cherished by all of us. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. I don't know how you can fill a void like that," she added.

Snyder was a founding member of the Oconomowoc Area Foundation, a past president of the Oconomowoc Rotary Club, past president of the Oconomowoc Area Chamber of Commerce, Citizen of the Year, was a member of the Knights of Columbus, a board member at Mount Mary and a board member of the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University.

"Tom Snyder was the spirit of Oconomowoc. No one loved to have fun more than Tom Snyder, and he insisted that everyone around him join in the fun. He was deeply religious and had a good Christian soul and was very proud of everyone in his family and his extended family," Stapleton said.

Funeral arrangement are pending with the Schmidt and Bartelt Notbohm-Kreutzmann Funeral Home, Oconomowoc

Mayfield Sports client, Packers Jamari Lattimore, looks like starting LB

Packers Jamari Lattimore tackles Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford on Sunday. Lattimore will probably start against the Bears."

Mark Hoffman

Green Bay— Nothing will be cast in stone until Friday, but based on the Play of Jamari Lattimore

The Packers have their weekly game management meeting on Friday, at which time they'll decide whether Jones is healthy enough to play. He returned from a two-week absence due to a thigh strain, but he has not been a full participant in practice, which in most cases is a requisite for starting.

Lattimore, who started against the New York Jets and Detroit Lions, has performed well enough at inside linebacker that the Packers don't need to rush Jones back into the lineup.

In fact, a question still remains as to whether Jones will get his job back after a poor performance to start the season. Much of that will depend on how well Lattimore plays this weekend against the Bears.

"I like the way Jamari has played," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. "I think he's done a good job."

But for those who think Lattimore is the perfect replacement, there are enough instances where he wasn't as sound as he needed to be.

"Some good plays and some plays he can improve on," is how linebackers coach Winston Moss assessed Lattimore's performance thus far.

In two starts, Lattimore is third on the team in tackles with 20 and has zero sacks, pass breakups, forced fumbles or penalties. He has given the Packers a more physical player defending the run, but he isn't as experienced dropping into coverage as Jones.

Against Seattle, Jones was bad in all phases of the game and was quickly shut down the following week so the thigh injury, which had been bothering him through the latter part of training camp, could heal completely. Now he is working to get back into football shape.

"I think once Brad gets back and is healthy, it will give us more flexibility," Capers said. "I like what Jamari has done. It gives us another athlete. We'll see where Brad is from a health standpoint."

Added Moss: "Brad has only been limited in practice, how we want to integrate him back in the scheme, that's still up in the air."

Ready to roll: It appears Clay Matthews is not going to miss his first game this season due to a groin injury he suffered against Detroit

At least that's what he says.

Matthews came into the locker room — along with many of his teammates — as the media was being herded out and was pressed by a couple of reporters on whether he would be available Sunday.

One asked, are you going to play?

"Yeah, I'll be out there," Matthews said.

Listed as a limited participant, Matthews practiced for the second straight day and didn't look like he was taking anything half speed.

Coach Mike McCarthy made it seem as though Matthews was limited to individual drills only, so how much more Matthews did after reporters were kicked out of practice isn't known. But Matthews was in pads and apparently passed whatever test he felt he needed to pass to play Sunday.

Injury report: The Packers had five others on the injury report, but everyone took part in the full-pads workout Thursday.

The only players who were limited were Matthews, Jones and linebacker Nick Perry (wrist).

The Bears injury report was far more extensive.

They had seven players who did not take part in practice at all.

They were: end Jared Allen (illness), center Roberto Garza (ankle), receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle), linebacker Shea McClellin (hand), cornerback Sharrick McManis (thigh), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion) and guard Matt Slauson (ankle).

The Bears did not practice Wednesday after returning home late from a Monday night game against the New York Jets.

No worries: Until Sunday, running back Eddie Lacy had not fumbled since his fifth carry of his first professional game.

That's 326 consecutive carries (including playoffs) without a fumble.

Lacy coughed it up on his second attempt against Detroit when he ran into the back of center Corey Linsley. The ball was returned 40 yards for a touchdown.

Running backs coach Sam Gash said he hasn't spoken to Lacy about it.

"I'm not worried about Eddie being a fumbler, not by any stretch of the imagination," he said. "He knows he's a good ball carrier. He's very secure with the ball.

"It hurt him more than it hurt anybody else. That's the type of player he really is where it bothers him. And my job was to keep him coming back, and he came back and played fairly well in the game."

Gash said there has been too much focus on Lacy for failures in the running game against the Lions. He said the entire offensive group has to shoulder the blame.
