  1. Gute's Amazing Roster Purge

    Ugh! Seriously. This thread! Under TT the franchise was a beacon of stability with roster changes of approx 10-15 players each year in our final 53. All the OP is doing is point out that we're seeing a much higher than usual turnover over the past season and a bit. A far cry from our usual stability. It makes perfect sense appreciate that aspect. Its unusual for us, it might not be across the NFL but its a big deal for us. Its a change of direction and we're just simply paying attention to it. Absolutely no need to be so dismissive of it. It shows how TT let the roster stagnate to the point where Gute had no choice but to take fairly drastic measures. Compared to our usual standards the roster turnover in this short amount of time is quite impressive. For the first time in a while we haven't really got a roster which the fans identify with. We lost a bit of our identity in some ways. Its going to take time to build up new fan favourites and return to that familiar feeling of stability.

    Ok! no probs, Instead of the red FA blood how about some sweet blue trade blood instead. It will cost quite a bit more though as I had to capture a couple of aliens to collect this.

    Mostly true. However as for our DB group I think if TT was still in charge probably half of them would still be on the roster by now. Gute really purged this area of the team. 14 players gone in 2 years. Our DB group is completely unrecognisable from the last TT roster.

    I've added more names to the list from the final roster of the 2017 season.

    Highly unlikely however there's an alternative option, here is some blood from a free agent which you can inject into yourself as a pick me up. You can pay me later.

    So that leaves only Tramon Williams, Bulaga, Rodgers and Crosby from our superbowl winning roster. I think in 2020 Rodgers will be the last man standing,

    Out of all the remaining Packers free agent I think we will want to keep one or two of the following: Ibraheim Campbell, Clay Matthews and Mo Wilkerson. Matthews is going to be the most expensive one which makes me think its unlikely he will be coming back considering our cap space.

    Anyway could the $8m and $5m difference could be what we paid Geronimo to keep him here? $2m under the tender but had we put a 2nd round tender instead we would've paid him $3m. That difference could imply we decided to give Geronimo the $3m after all?

    Only now he double check his sources!? what outstanding journalism!

    Just a quick thought. Could we have lost the Bennett appeal so his cap charges are being counted?

    Blame McCarthy for wanting him out. Gute as a newly appointed GM was trying to work with McCarthy and went along with it. They probably felt ok with it at the time as they had HaHa. It all unraveled from here. Now we find ourselves having to rebuild at safety and we just got to make the best of it. In my view its a blessing in disguise because our safety group has been bad for a long time and was overdue for a remake. I personally feel we should just look for a FS in the draft. I'm not too fussed if we don't pick up a FA - there's only two FS under the age of 28 worth kicking the tyres on, Boston and Riley.

    If the pay was the same and knowing he would get the starting role in both places I think he will end up sticking with what he knows in order to keep some element of stability for himself and his family. He's been moving around from city to city every year since 2016. If he joins us on a one year deal we would be his 4th team, and even after one year and if he finally lands his payday he could potentially be on his 5th team in 5 years. Phew!

    Some positives, some negatives from an article on 247sports. The missed tackles is concerning as it is not something you want to see from your "safe"ty. Coupled with Cadmus review he sure sounds like an ascending player. Just reading all this, I get the impression he is a gambler. He looks for the big play every time and that might explain the high number of missed tackles which in turn caused the low number of passes defended. It's ridiculously low at 5. That's HaHa territory. Just for comparison Eddie Jackson had 21 passes defended last season. Kareem Jackson has 19, Tre Boston has 12, Amos has 11. Actually I've just realised that NFL.com counts interceptions in their pass defended totals. Eg. Eddie Jackson deflected 15 passed + made 6 interceptions = 21 passes defended. That means Riley has only deflected ONE pass the entire season and intercepted 4. That's bad isn't it?
