Green Bay- The Packers decided to close practice on Monday.  It's not uncommon for NFL teams to enter lockdown mode as the regular season approaches.  Whether it's based on fear or reality, coaches think exposing their practice in any way can give other teams a competitive advantage.

Head coach Mike McCarthy says some things are better left between a coaching staff and its players.

"It's great to have the open practices. It's obviously very beneficial for the environment it creates and for the fans. There are some things that you do want... not exposed until the season comes. We installed everything offensively, defensively, and special teams in those eight practices. When you isolate it the way you do in these periods... Our media's very intelligent and on top of their game, and you write too much stuff and we just don't want it written."
