  1. Packers Expected to sign Za'Darius Smith

    I will go with the pressure and interception. What would you prefer, a sack forcing a punt or a pressure that still leads to a TD? A pressure occassionally leads to INTs, but a 3rd down sack almost always leads to a punt. Punts are as good as turnovers except for usually worse field position.
  2. Random Packer News & Notes

    The QB salary will likely not change as a percent of cap. It hasn't changed in 25 years and that should be enough to call a trend. So if your question is 'will NFL revenue continue to increase?' Then I would say yes, but at a slower degree. I think NFL has peaked and baseball and basketball are improving and gaining a bigger slice of the pie.

    Daniels play has dropped off the last few seasons. He is still good, but he is definitely on the decline. Maybe with new energy of defense and more plays off to rest, maybe he can regain the form. The fact that he looks very different than the rest of our DL, makes me think he will not be resigned. Personally, I'm in a wait and see mode to see how well he plays. I believe Lowry is about plateaued out. But he is an above average player who is reliable. Montravious is a player who started to come around late last season. He doesnt get a lot of love by Packer fans, but I expect him to be a good player for us this year. As I pointed out to a Adams hater the other day, Packers cut Cullen Jenkins 2 years in a row. He finally made the roster in year 3, let alone becoming a force. It can take a few years for the big guys.

    Part of me thinks it all sounds a little like a participation trophy. Of course you prefer a sack - it ends the play. A pressure can still be a completion and positive play for the offense. But hey, you were participated in the play, good job!

    Well done. Appreciate your efforts!
  6. Tight End Statistical Projections

    Fascinating. Thanks for posting, I enjoy analysis like this. I think the flaw here is that this analysis weighs physical measurables so highly as a predictor of success. Dedication and hard work are big determining factors which cannot be measured with much accuracy. I know you put in college stats which may capture that, but lots of variables like QB quality and other WR/TE options (would Hockenson have done better if Fant not on the team?) Tough factors to gain metrics on.

    And her mouth was full, no doubt.
  8. Draft Mulligans

    Oh yeah? Packer fan here. So my Muligan is getting back TE Jace Sternberger, picking him at 44 and not Elgton Jenkins.
  9. Biggest head scratching picks

    I cant disagree with that. But it doesnt prove Jones is a bust.
  10. Biggest head scratching picks

    Double Face Palm The Draft Network had Patrick Mahomes rated as day 2 pick. https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/patrick-mahomes-a-case-in-the-complexity-of-draft-scouting Give Jones a chance. He played on a horrible team and I can see that would not produce the quality YouTube video highlights your analysis needs. I think Jones was a reach and would have been available late first, but if Getman felt higher on him than others, so be it.

    Yup. The joke (Haha) is on the bears.
  12. 1[21]: Darnell Savage [S; Maryland]

    So Savage has scored more TDs (2) than he has given up (0) the last 2 years? That's a cool stat.

    I checked the math. A 4th round pick is 3/7ths better than a 7th round pick.

    The media types often miss talented players on bad teams. Especially for positions that are easy to game plan away from. More so OL talent, but holds true for safety as well. Case in point is Nick Collins who was the 70th (ish) rated DB by mel Kiper. He had him down as 7th round to FA.
