  1. Dallas will certainly be an interesting team to keep tabs on if there is a 2020 season. But I don't think former Packer 1st round pick Clinton-Dix will be in the mix much, even if the Cowboys don't land Earl Thomas. @GehlkenNFL Cowboys signed Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in March to be their starting safety. Based on camp so far, that won’t be the case. Darian Thompson more impressive so far. This competition will continue to unfold. Clinton-Dix signed a one-year contract with $2.25M fully guaranteed. 8:09 AM · Aug 23, 2020
  2. The Packers D was indeed mostly putrid while Rodgers was still ascending/reaching his prime and less expensive under the cap between 2011-2013. But the putridness of the defense was hardly due merely to crap luck. Poor personnel decisions played a much greater role. To take but one example from the post above, the notion that there was not enough $ to pay Jenkins is poppycock. There was in fact plenty of cap space to re-sign Cullen after the SB win, but the previous GM decided to instead spend that $ on A.J. Hawk. "The Packers said they valued Hawk’s contributions highly, and they pr
  3. Are we referring to the the final 3 weeks of the 2018 season? If so, let's recap:No TFLs, no Sacks for the Adams-Lancaster-Lowry trio. Week 15 = Chicago 24-GB 17. The Trubisky-led Bears rush for 100 yards and Mitchell passes for 235 yards, 2 TDs and no picks. Adams had 1/2 a sack, none for Lancaster or Lowry and no TFLs among the trio, though Lancaster did lead the team with 5 unassisted tackles. https://www.packersnews.com/story/sports/nfl/packers/2018/12/16/chicago-bears-mitch-trubisky-picks-apart-green-bay-packers-his-terms/2317515002/ Week 16 = GB 44-NY Jets 38.
  4. And the week before the 2016 NFCC slaughter in Atlanta, Rodgers threw for 355 yard and the offense put up 34 points in Dallas. Meanwhile, the vaunted Pack D held the Cowboys to 31 points. Oh, and for the record, the here are the Packers last 10 first round/top picks: 2012 Nick Perry OLB 2013 Datone Jones DE 2014 Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix 2015 Damarious Randall Safety (well in GB he was forced to play CB) 2016 Kenny Clark DT 2017 Kevin King CB (traded out of the first, King the first pick of the second round) 2018 Jaire Alexander CB 2019 Rashan Gary OLB
  5. Oh, don't get me wrong, I am in no way comparing Rodgers post-season accomplishments with those of Tom Brady. There is no comparison. Brady has been better than Rodgers in the playoffs. But Brady also benefitted from having a far, far superior supporting cast from GM to HC to the defense. For example, no one discounts Brady's role in the Pats 13-3 SB victory over the Rams in an obvious "team" win. And for context, consider that when Atlanta slaughtered GB 44-21 in the 2016 NFCC game, it marked the third time the Packers D had given up 44 or points in a playoff loss with Rodgers
  6. Rodgers certainly has not been great in NFC Championship games. But no one should ignore just how crappy the defenses have been in Green Bay since 2010 (with the 2019 D being a bit better ... until it got exposed as frauds by SF in the NFCC). Compare, for example the respective defensive scoring rankings of Green Bay and New England since Rodgers became the starter in 2008: 2019 - NE: 1 - GB: 9 2018 - NE: 7 - GB: 22 2017 - NE: 5 - GB: 26 2016 - NE: 1 - GB: 21 2015 - NE: 10 - GB: 12 2014 - NE: 8 - GB: 13 2013 - NE: 10 - GB: 24 2012 - NE: 9 - GB: 11 2011 - NE: 15 -
  7. I think some are underselling just how bad Allison was in 2019 and just how much of an improvement Funchess will be if he has a season that, as you describe above, he is fully capable of having. That said, unless ESB or MVS breaks out, the WR grouping of Funchess, Lazard, and Davante is not exactly fast. I don't know how anyone can put much faith in MVS after what transpired last season, so here's hoping has a breakout 2020 because it looks like the Packers are going to really need him.
  8. I think the need to address glaring roster deficiencies elsewhere is probably the correct answer to the question of why there has been no 2nd round WR (or higher) selected in 7 years. Unfortunately, that roster redo did not exactly turn out as hoped when, immediately after D. Adams was selected in 2014, they went Rollins, Spriggs, J. Jones, and J. Jackson in round 2.
  9. Andrew Brandt, who was there on the inside when everything went down in GB during the Favre-Rodgers transition, wrote a piece in SI yesterday saying why, in regards to the Love-Rodgers transition, "I get it, but this cannot end well." Today on Rich Eisen's show, Favre says, regarding potential conflict involving Rodgers as a result of the selection of Love, "at some point it will rear its ugly head" and that (after speaking with Rodgers post-draft) he believes Rodgers will play somewhere other than Green Bay before his career is over. Brett has been known to blather on about any num
  10. I'll noted Degaura's 4.72 40 time in response to yet another attempt to fluff the pick by claiming he might be the next Delanie Walker (whose 40 time was elite). Loving the player and the pick is on thing, pretending Deguara is a good pick because he could be the next Delanie Walker while ignoring their glaring speed differentials, is just ignorant.
  11. Is 4.72 40 Deguara really being compared to Delanie Walker? Delanie Walker ran a 4.54 40. Speed was what separated Walker from the average Joe athlete. "According to a New York Times report last week, which analyzed data provided by Sportradar, Walker reached a top speed of 19.82 miles per hour during a play this season. No other tight end among the league’s other 31 franchises matched that burst." https://www.nashvillepost.com/sports/tennessee-titans/blog/20988072/walkers-speed-separates-him-from-rest-of-nfls-tight-ends There is a lot to like about Deguara's makeup, b
  12. Through 2014, the previous GM repeatedly struck gold with his early WR selections - Jennings, J. Jones, Nelson, Cobb, and Adams. But since 2015, there has been a definite downward slide in WR talent in GB. 2015 is when Nelson tore his ACL, he had one more productive year (with Rodgers at QB) in 2016, did very little in 2017 (with Hundley at QB most of the year), and was sent off for a swan song in Oakland in 2018. Jones came back for one last dance in 2015, but was done after that. Cobb battled injury and just looked old his last few seasons in GB. He had a bounce back yea
  13. SF killed us in the NFC Championship game because they ran the ball over and over and over again and we could not stop it. Does anyone really Pettine and the D did not know the run was coming by halftime -- when they'd already gotten their ***** collectively handed to them?
  14. Andrew Brandt on the Love selection: The Packers have the most fortunate (and spoiled) front office and fan base in the NFL when it comes to the quarterback position. They have had a franchise quarterback leading their team for almost thirty years! And they now believe they have secured the future to hopefully continue that streak another 10-15 years with Jordan Love. I get it, but this cannot end well. https://www.si.com/nfl/2020/04/28/green-bay-packers-draft-jordan-love-aaron-rodgers-deja-vu?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=themmqb&utm_medium=social
