Amid all the high-profile Packers players on both sides of the ball so far this season, is there anybody who might be viewed as an unsung, under-the-radar hero up to now? Admittedly challenged by the question posed by PFW, team sources came up with an interesting candidate: Jarrett Bush. A lightning rod for criticism in the past who can be a real liability in coverage, especially on fade patterns, the sixth-year pro has been both a spirited leader on special teams and a clutch big-play performer in his limited action in dime situations. Bush drew rave reviews for a key late sack of Jay Cutler in Week Three and has shown a real flair for blitzing from the slot — a skill we hear defensive coordinator Dom Capers might want to take advantage of by playing more dime defense. But Bush's greatest value has been a nonstop energy that we hear has arguably made him head coach Mike McCarthy's favorite player.
