~GREEN BAY, Wis. — The battalion of satellite trucks was long gone when the Green Bay Packers reported to training camp this summer, having vacated the premises shortly after quarterback Brett Favre was traded in August 2008.

Every player was signed and accounted for, making a distant memory of holdouts that have disrupted training camp in each of the past two seasons.

On 2nd-year CB Brandon Underwood: "He's had a great camp," Rodgers said. McCarthy added: "Brandon is clearly a much more mature player. He has all the skills. ... The thing about him, he's a tough, smart guy, too. He's got a chance to be a really good player."

All that remained was the type of tranquility that allows a team to come of age. Many of us believe the Packers have the makings of a special group, one that is already off to a good start with a productive and — more importantly — quiet training camp.

“We determine our path that we’re going to take,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “Maybe we have less obstacles going into the year than we’ve had in the past for people to evaluate. If they think that and like us more this year, that’s fine. But in reality, if you don’t come here and put in the time and put in that foundation, it doesn’t matter. These are our foundation days, and I like the work our guys have been putting in.”     Rest of story here
