  1. Week 9 Games

    He's quoting from the Viking forum.
  2. Week 9 Games

    So hands to the face on the neck is a good call now? /s
  3. PackFan is right, check out some stretching exercises. Doesn't have to be 'hippy stuff', but you will be amazed at how stretching eases sciatic pain. Been there, haven't had pain for over 10 years.
  4. Thanks, that is the answer to the question I'm trying to ask.
  5. Honest question: Is it legal for a defender to grab an OL's shoulder pads like Flowers did? I get grabbing a shoulder, arm, etc, but I'm having a hard time with the grabbing of equipment not in the act of tackling.
  6. Maybe Pettine's KILL style of defense will be what he needs? Isn't the hallmark that it's easy to play?
  7. 2019 Week 1 Packers @ Bears Game Week discussion

    Looking forward to what the defense brings, but mostly want to see how AR12 looks. Last year he wasn't good, turn-over numbers be damned. If he has bought into the new systems and uses all of the tools available (check downs, etc) this could be a special year.
  8. Josh Jones wants to be traded

    Actually, I like the idea of MLF not putting up with 'scuffles' in practice. How often have we complained when a player did it in a game and took a 15 yrd penalty? You are how you practice. If they are practicing something that reduces stupid penalties, I'm all for it.
  9. Conference Championship Games

    No on Suh. He would probably cost too much and he's a POS.

    Does JIm Bob Couter seem like a fit for AR? He seems to have done wonders with Stafford in the last few years.
  11. Bears vs Vikings GDT

    Not sure here. Don't we have 2 or 3 threads currently discussing how FA are almost as much of a crap shoot as drafting, but it costs more? Not sure the Bears will be able to get everything they need under their cap. Will it be possible to sign first/second round talent at an affordable price in FA? Rookie contracts are more important than people realize. The top end of their draft is empty for the next couple of years, and with their success they will be drafting lower in each round. They had better be real good picks. This could affect their depth for a number of years, as we have seen in Green Bay with drafting lower for a number of years.
  12. Bears vs Vikings GDT

    Okay, I read the draft chart wrong. So that is even worse: nothing until their 3rd this year, which will be somewhat lower because of a good finish this year. Nothing in 2020 until the Raiders 2nd rounder. The Bears are happy now, but will feel the pinch in 2-4 years. If they have to pay for FA to upgrade and/or patch, that will get expensive. Isn't that the upshot of the discussion in the thread concerning the Jimmy Graham contract, that a team has to overpay for good FA's? As a Packer fan this makes me happy.
  13. Bears vs Vikings GDT

    Don't the Bear's have the Patriot's second round in 2019? They don't pick up anything from the Raider's until 2020, is that correct? So no first, a very low second (almost third) round this year? Then no first in 2020? Is this correct? And Bear fans are saying draft capital given up for Mack isn't important? Just want to make sure I understand this...
  14. Contract years, Cobb vs CMJ.

    I think CM coming back depends on who the next DC is. CM has provided pressure this year, just not sack numbers. Will that production be needed? Seems like a number of games this year he has made some poor choices with angles, missed tackles, etc. (Not super excited to see that on a rotational basis.) I would think a veteran wouldn't make those type of 'high motor' mistakes. I'm not sold on the move to IL. IIRC he blitzed from there and looked good; his coverage was average at best (maybe AG20 could weigh in on that).
  15. 16th Coach of the GB Packers (let the search begin)

    I honestly don't care if the next HC is a 'pick-your-flavor' guru. I want someone who can pick excellent assistant coaches and can manage a game. Most of the great teams seem to have great coordinators who get poached (think Holmgren's coaching staff), which provides as much parity in the league as the draft does. Once a coaching tree is picked, it's hard to restock. (Sorry for mixing metaphors).
