GREEN BAY, Wis. – The kids really are all right.
The Green Bay Packers' defense is relying on many fresh-faced rookies this season, both by design and because of injuries, and so far they're delivering — and forming a close bond in the process.
And it's that bond — part competition, part shared experience, part friendship — that is paying off big for the Packers these days, according to the young guys involved.
At one point in last Sunday's victory at Detroit, the Packers had six rookies on the field: Moses, safeties Sean Richardson and Jerron McMillian, defensive linemen Jerel Worthy and Mike Daniels, and cornerback Casey Hayward, who with his team-leading five interceptions is stating a very strong case for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year consideration.
