  1. Jags to hire former DC Dom Capers as defensive assistant

    The Packers defensive performances under Dom Capers during the 7 playoff losses with Aaron Rodgers. Atlanta 44-21 (493 yards allowed); Arizona, 26-20 (368 yards allowed); Seattle, 28-22 (397 yards allowed); San Francisco, 23-20 (381 yards allowed); San Francisco, 45-31 (579 yards allowed); New York Giants, 37-20 (420 yards allowed); and Arizona, 51-45 (531 yards allowed). Capers' defenses in Green Bay gave up 44 or more points in 3 playoff losses. As of the date of the Packers final loss while Dom was still the defensive coordinator -- to the Falcons in the 2017 NFC Championship, Tom Brady's D has never once given up 44 points in his (then) 267 career starts.
  2. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    NE has been adding both expensive and top end free veteran agents (Gilmore, Revis) and more often less expensive options (Chris Long, Hogan, Clayborn, Burhkead, etc., etc., etc.) since forever. NE has made more trades than any other NFL team over the past decade plus. NE has done this because it realized that with a top QB/selecting late in the draft round after round it could not rely solely upon the draft to maintain a championship caliber roster. NE's approach is in direct contrast to the rigid "draft & develop"/reliance upon young players philosophy of Gute's predecessor. GB made fewer player trades (and none of note) than any other NFL team between 2008-2017 and signed the fewest number of unrestricted veteran free agents over those 10 years. Given that Gute has already made 4 player trades in his year on the job and demonstrated a willingness to take part in veteran free agency it appears he prefers the Patriots approach to roster construction over the one employed by the previous GM.

    ✔@alexmarvez Source tells me Dom Capers could become strong option for @Bengals as new defensive coordinator if team doesn't hire Dennis Allen away from the @Saints 8:43 AM - Feb 3, 2019 So this is the second team, after the Cardinals, who have been linked to Dom this offseason. Wonder which one of Mac's former coordinators/Assistant head coaches will get hired first by another NFL team first, Dom? Winston Moss? Has Philbin found a landing spot? Zook? Slocum?

    Yes it did. Thankfully Romo has yet to become a total corporate hack and pointed out that it should not have been called.

    Interesting comments from Bakh. "The one thing that always rubbed me the wrong way was, I guess it parallels with complacency, is accountability," Bakhtiari said. "For me, the thing that really grinded my gears was guys being late to the plane. No one holding other guys accountable or even fining them for being late." https://cheeseheadtv.com/blog/complacency-unwavering-lack-of-accountability-plagued-packers-in-2018-305?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

    Sadly, Zook is only the second worst of the Pack's (two) Special Teams coordinators over the past decade. I doubt anyone could ever top Shawn Slocum's years of poorly rated units culminating in the fake field goal/Brandon Bostick gaffes in his final game in Green Bay.

    Wonder if Ron Zook is in demand around the NFL? Uh, probably not. The Packers STs ranked 32nd. Again. https://footballmaven.io/talkoffame/nfl/rick-gosselin-s-2018-nfl-special-teams-rankings-MbGJNF3fzUq4AiEDITayKQ/

    Clete Blakeman is a pathetic twit.
  10. Conference Championship Games

    Go Chiefs. But that was not interference.
  11. Conference Championship Games

    Didn't the Packers trade the 29th pick in round 1 for the 33rd pick plus a 4th rounder just 2 years ago?
  12. Conference Championship Games

    And Cooks. And Peters.
  13. Conference Championship Games

    Like picking up late 5th rounder on the draft value chart.
  14. Evaluating Gutenkunst's first year

    With respect to the ON THE FIELD impact of Gute's moves in 2018 they earn a solid C+. Regarding the draft, he made a great trade to acquire a second 1st round pick. Alexander looks like the type of impact player that has been missing from GB's D for years now. MVS & ESB were productive for where they were chosen. Josh Jackson, Burks, Moore, and Madison were all disappointments. Free Agency was not as good as the draft. Gute made the right decision getting rid of Jordy, but keeping Cobb and Matthews was a waste. The Wilkerson & Tramon signings were OK, but not Graham. Not Graham at all. I don't blame Gute for the decision to trade trade as it was evident McCarthy wanted him gone. But he did not get much in return for Randall either. On the other hand, getting rid of HaHa, Hundley, and Montgomery for 4th, 6th, and 7th round picks was both wise and evidenced what the 2018 season was primarily about for Gute and the Green Bay Packers -- purging the organization of its complacency both ON THE FIELD AND OFF. For that Gute deserves credit.

    So Joe Whitt was predicting Randall could be a pro-bowl S while Randall was still in GB and yet Randall was forced to play CB. Is Whitt burnnning Dom or the guy who drafted Randall to play CB? Either way, just more evidence of the deep dysfunction.
