2013 Game Summaries
Week 7 - An UDFA from Louisiana Tech. Myles White was signed off the practice squad this week with James Jones and Randall Cobb going down. While White only had two targets (one of which was a deflected pass), he got a lot of snaps for a new guy, on the field for 47 (or 66%) of Green Bayís offensive snaps. With Cobb out for the next month or so, Jones week to week with a PCL sprain and Jermichael Finley out for the forseeable future, White is an intriguing player who could see some targets once he settles in and gets used to the offense.
Week 8 - An undrafted free agent rookie from Louisiana Tech, Myles White is a fast receiver with good hands. He saw short routes almost exclusively as the Packers seemed to want to get the ball in his hands quickly and let his feet do most of the work. White showed off that speed on a few screens and slants, but most clearly on his last catch, a screen pass he took for 15 yards. On that play, a 1st and 10 originating on the Vikingsí 40 yard line, White lined up on the far left side of the formation. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers immediately turned and threw the ball to him at the snap and since the cornerback was playing about seven yards off the line of scrimmage, White had plenty of time to gather the ball in and turn upfield. As soon as the cornerís feet stopped and he started to break down and prepare for a tackle, White took off and was on top of the corner before he could react. By the time he turned to pursue, White was a step past him and it was simple to push him away. White was tackled along the sideline, but not before he gained another 15 yards after that first corner stepped up. He may be raw and limited, but Whiteís speed and athleticism make a great weapon for the Packers, who love to use those short screens and slants to pull the defense forward.
Week 9 - White was already going to be the odd man out with James Jonesí return and it only got worse when Aaron Rodgers fractured his collarbone in the first quarter. Backup quarterback Seneca Wallace was all over the place and didnít get very deep into his reads which left White ignored most of the day. With Jones back, Jarrett Boykin will move to the No. 3 role and White will see the field very few times going forward.
Week 10 - With the return of James Jones, rookie Myles White has dropped to No. 4 in the receiving pecking order. He was on the field for just two snaps and isnít going to be very involved in the offense.
Week 11 - With the return of James Jones, rookie Myles White has dropped to No. 4 in the receiving pecking order. He was on the field for just two snaps and isnít going to be very involved in the offense.
Week 14 - Seeing his first real action in weeks, receiver Myles White had just one catch on a short out route early in the second half. Overall, he is still not a factor in the offense behind Jarrett Boykin, James Jones and Jordy Nelson.
