  1. aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

    Mr Rodgers said he wasn't a real physically imposing offensive lineman so he had to make up for it with his smarts and moves. he told me a story how his outlook really changed when he joined some team that had a former NFL player and coach as its o-line coach. the coach taught him some moves and head games to really get under the skin of his defensive opponents. he was taught at the very first play of the game to take both fists clenched side by side and pop the guy hard up under his chin. definitely illegal but hard for the refs to see in that tight of a space. on the next play, as the defensive player was waiting for a similar move, he was taught to push him to the side instead, no hands to the face, only body. different types of moves and intents like this, back and forth, over and over, would both confuse and irritate the defensive lineman so much that he would start keying in on Rodgers himself as his opponent and stop playing the defensive game scheme. at that point, Rodgers knew he had him and they would start running plays right next and past him. head games.

  4. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy says his team’s efforts to trade for Khalil Mack a year ago were thwarted primarily by the Raiders’ perception that the Bears would have a higher first-round draft pick. Murphy said the Packers made a big offer to the Raiders for Mack, but the Raiders thought the Bears would have a worse team. “Well the whole Khalil Mack thing. It’s not that we didn’t try,” Murphy said. “We were aggressive. We wanted to sign him. I think, ironically, the Raiders took the Bears offer because they thought they would be a better draft pick.” That turned out to be an unwise calculation by the Raiders, as the Packers ended up with the 12th overall pick in the draft, while the Raiders got the 24th pick from the Bears. But Murphy thinks it might have worked out for the best, noting that if the Packers had combined the huge contract Mack was demanding with the huge contract they gave Aaron Rodgers, there wouldn’t be much cap space left for the other 51 players on the roster. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/07/19/mark-murphy-packers-wanted-khalil-mack-raiders-thought-bears-would-have-higher-pick/

  8. Long snapper Austin Cutting is the lone 2019 seventh-round pick without a contract, but the delay in signing with the team hasn’t been due to a dispute over the size of the deal. Cutting attended the Air Force Academy and associate athletic director for communications Troy Garnhart said in May that there were ongoing discussions about allowing Cutting to play while serving his two-year service commitment. That decision has reportedly been made. Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports that Cutting has been given the green light to play. There are no further details about the Air Force commitment. Tomasson adds that Cutting is expected to sign his four-year rookie deal with the team on Monday, which is the day that all Vikings rookies will be reporting to training camp. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/07/18/report-vikings-seventh-rounder-austin-cutting-cleared-to-play-in-nfl/
  9. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    The NFL has suspended Vikings running back Roc Thomas for three games for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. He is allowed to participate in training camp and the preseason. Thomas admitted to felony marijuana possession in May but was sentenced to probation, with the charge dismissed if he completes conditions of the probationary term. Those include a chemical dependency evaluation and possible treatment; no alcohol or drug use; and random testing. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/07/16/nfl-suspends-roc-thomas-three-games/
