GREEN BAY, Wis. _ It was only three weeks into training camp this summer when Bob Slowik signaled to all who were watching what could be expected of his defense this season.
On the first day back to practice after the Green Bay Packers' defense had committed nine penalties for 134 yards in an exhibition game against New Orleans, safety Curtis Fuller drew a flag for climbing over the back of a receiver.
"Good job, Curtis," chirped Slowik, the Packers' first-year defensive coordinator.
Does it come as any surprise that four months later, Slowik's defensive backs continue to grab, hold, bump and mug receivers? And then, after they get caught, that they do nothing but whine about it?
