  1. Aaron Rodgers Appreciation Thread 4.0

    Can't forget Anthony Dilweg, Randy Wright and David Whitehurst. What collection of terrible QBs.

    Not salary wise. Wagner = 4 year, $43,000,000 contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Perry = 5 year, $59,000,000 contract with the Green Bay Packers
  3. Mike Pettine Defense

    "kudos to Pettine for finding a way to keep his defense competitive and somehow tied for fourth in sacks even though his pass rush based on talent almost surely ranks in the bottom quarter of the league." https://www.packersnews.com/story/sports/nfl/packers/2018/12/10/packers-analysis-mixing-and-matching-keeps-defense-competitive/2269657002/

    33 year-old Jordy Nelson's receiving stats for the Raiders thus far in 2018 are, at best, pedestrian. Those who want to believe his stats mean nothing, are entirely attributable to the poor play by the Oakland offense, and that Jordy would have been awesome in Green and Gold this season are certainly free to do so. Gute obviously saw Jordy as an aging, overpaid player when he offered him only the minimum veteran salary to remain in Green Bay. Good for Jordy that the Raiders were willing to pay him so much more and good for Gute not to be paying Jordy either the $13M he got from Oakland or the $9.25M Jordy was set to make this season under his old contract. As for those who insist Jordy's lack of production is entirely due to the Raider team around him, that take would seem to require one to ignore the fact that Oakland's TE has had no problem being very, very productive this season. Of course, with Martellus Bennettt still counting for over $4m against the Packers 2018 salary cap, I can certainly understand why the dwindling few who still refuse to acknowledge the previous GM's numerous errors would want to ignore Jared Cook.

    So far this season, Jordy has 41 receptions for 498 yards (12.1 ypr) and 3 TDs. As a Jordy fan, I could not be happier for him that he is getting $13,000,000 guaranteed for his play in 2018 and 2019. As a Packer fan, I am thrilled Jordy is getting that $ from the Oakland Raiders. Now, if we want to look at a player in Oakland who sure would have looked good in Green and Gold (in 2017 and 2018), that TE seems to be having a pretty good season: 61 Catches for 825 yards (13.5 ypr) and 6 TDs.
  6. Playoffs? What playoffs...

    If Seattle wins tonight and goes to 8-5 and Minnesota wins next Sunday at home against Miami to go to 7-6-1, how would the 5-8-1 Packers (after a loss to the Bears) NOT be eliminated given that the Vikings hold the tiebreaker over Green Bay?
  7. Mike Pettine Defense

    I really miss Dom's 10-man defensive looks. That seemed to really confuse the opposing offenses. Even veteran QBs did not know what to make of them.

    Michael Cohen‏Verified account @Michael_Cohen13 #Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling organizes a homeless drive to distribute essential items on Christmas Day. As it turns out, his event is several generations in the making for a family built on giving. That's why @MVS__11 is our Person of the Year: https://theathletic.com/701034/2018/12/10/marquez-valdes-scantling-continuing-a-family-tradition-of-helping-the-homeless/ Appears that MVS is "Packer People." Hope he keeps on improving enough to become my next "favorite" player now that Jordy is gone.
  9. 2019 Draft Discussion

    No, I could not agree more with you that the Packers need an influx of defensive talent in 2019, specifically but not exclusively at OLB and S. I was just noting that the need for talent on D has been a constant refrain for about 8 years now.

    2011-2017 say hello.
  11. Mike Pettine Defense

    Could not agree more. My worry was that, because he was a former 1st round pick who came up with a few INTs and once made the Pro Bowl, he was next in line to get a big second contract despite not earning it on the field. Have not noticed much drop off in the Safety play since he departed. HaHa is just another Packers high defensive draft pick who did not turn out it appears.
  12. 16th Coach of the GB Packers (let the search begin)

    Until 6 days ago Winston Moss was the Associate Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers. He was with the Packers for 13 seasons and steadily rose up the ranks after starting out as a linebackers coach. He was about the only coach to survive McCarthy's purge of his defensive assistants after the 2008 season. Moss was not some recent hire, he was by McCarthy's side through thick and thin like perhaps no one else on Mac's staff. If Moss truly is an idiot, well then ...

    Down to 12th pick after today's games.
  15. Mike Pettine Defense

    Really? Dom's 2017 defense finished 29th in offensive points per game. Pettine's D was 18th prior to giving up 20 today. I think that ranking goes up. And of course Capers had injuries, but he did not "deal" with them very well over the last several years of his time in Green Bay. https://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/stat/opponent-offensive-points-per-game?date=2018-02-05
