GREEN BAY (WAOW)-Tuesday marks the Packers official final day or training camp and with the pre-season in the rearview mirror, players say it was a little different at first, but very productive.

Says Greg Jennings, "Obviously we had some things that didn't have the attention on our team, but I think we fought through those things and we came together as a team and we made some strides and that's all you can ask for."

Says Mark Tauscher, "Lot of stuff going on.  I'd say pretty dramatic in the beginning, but as time went on we were able to get our work done and go out and perform and I think that's a good thing."

Says Nick Barnett, "I think we learned a lot, I think we grew a lot and we still have a long way to go before we hit that first game, but a lot of things came out positive in this camp."

While camp was positive, no NFL team is ever satisfied with where they are at, and neither are the packers.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy says, "The team's never where you want to be.  It's a football team that has an opportunity to be a good football team, but we still have work to do."

Jennings says, "Nobody's where they want to be, but we're getting there, like I said we're making strides."

The Packers play their final pre-season game here at Lambeau on Thursday.  The Titans are the only team the Packers face in both the pre-season and the regular season as they travel to Nashville in week nine.
