What follows are some noteworthy quotes from Packers players and coaches leading up to the team's Week Two visit to Carolina.

WR Greg Jennings on the Green Bay passing game's success with the back-shoulder route: "I've always said a perfect ball and a perfect route, you can't defend it anyway. But when you're throwing that back-shoulder with those two elements, it's impossible." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

DE Ryan Pickett on a very disconsolate Mike Neal after Neal learned he would have to undergo knee surgery: "He's taking it hard. He wants to be out there. At the same time, we're reminding him it's a long season, so we need him to get healthy and get back as soon as possible." (

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy on the Week Two status of CB Tramon Williams (shoulder): "We'll give him the next 48 hours to still have a chance. I was hopeful that he would be able to do some work today (Friday)." (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)
