  1. An Early Look at 2020 Free Agency

    Make him the highest paid TE i.e. what we are giving Graham and we are sorted
  2. An Early Look at 2020 Free Agency

    A tasty one at that https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/los-angeles-chargers/hunter-henry-18983/
  3. We have made better progress this year than I thought we would have but it is obvious we are still a few players away from being a top tier team. So if we are already talking draft let’s bring up some free agents too that could help us in Year 2 of the MLF program. Going into 2020 we have $25m cap space (Sportrac) and ditching Jimmy G will give another $10m. So there might be a bit of cash to flash. Here is a look at some positions and potential players that we could go after. Stick any names that you might like! RT I do think our weakness on offence is down to our Oline and ability to handle dominant front four teams. Bahk has had a down year by his standards rated at PFF 70.2 compared to 88.3 last year. All of our inside guys have been average. Both Linsley and Jenkins have a PFF rating of 64.5, Corey was rated at 73.3 last year. While Billy is the worst of the bunch at PFF 61.9. I just don’t see us upgrading the guards at the moment, all young, new deals. Corey maybe but probably not. Bryan Bulaga is our highest graded Oline dude at PFF 73. He is also in the last year of his contract, played really well but has an injury history and will be 31 this offseason. Is it worth replacing and giving that money to a younger player? Here a couple of guys MLF will be familiar with from Tennessee and might want to bring in: Jack Conklin pff 73.1 Dennis Kelly 69.3 DT We need another stud in the middle without a doubt. If you look at our players: Kenny Clark PFF 72.6, Dean Lowry PFF 60.3, Tyler Lancaster PFF 63.6, Mo Adams PFF 44.4. Arguably could do with two bodies there, one in the draft one in free agency. According to Football Outsider our run blocking is the worst at 32 https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/dl/2019 Not sure if the guys fit the bill but they were interesting names Jordan Phillips, 6ft 6in, 341lbs, 8 sacks, 1 FF, PFF 57.2 Vernon Butler, 6ft 4in, 330lbs, 4 sacks, 3 FF, PFF 65.5 DJ Reader, 6ft 3in, 347lbs, 3 sacks, PFF 87.8 Shelby Harris, 6ft 3in, 300lbs, 4 sacks, 1FF, PFF 82 ILB I’m happy to keep Martinez around and possibly but if he wants top dollar then it is time to move on, his PFF rating is quite dreary 58.9. Here are a few names either to replace or bring alongside Blake. Corey Littleton, 6ft 3in, 228lbs, 2ints, 2 FF, PFF 82.3 Joe Shorbert, 6ft 1in, 245, 4ints, 2FF, PFF 71.1 Nick Kwiatkoski, 6ft 2in, 242lbs, 1int, 1FF, PFF 80.9 Patrick Onwuasor 6ft, 227lbs, 1FF, PFF 49.3 (just my man crush) TE We are hopefully moving on from Jimmy and if we are in the premium TE sweepstakes again here are a few names to like. Hunter Henry, 6ft 5in, 250lbs, 497yds, 3 TDs, PFF 80.1 Jack Doyle, 6ft 6in, 262lbs, 377yds, 3 TDs, PFF 68.1 Austin Hooper, 6ft 4in, 254lbs, 608yds, 6TDs, PFF 82 WR Only one name really jumps out at me here and that is Devante Parker, 6ft 3in, 216lbs, he’ll go over 1,000yds this season and has a PFF rating of 76.1. AJ Green is there as well but it has been a couple of years since he has topped 1,000 yards and he’ll be 32 next year.
  4. I think our biggest issue is our Oline is not as good as we think it is. Bhak has not been the same and I wonder if he will earn a third contract here. Bulaga has been okay as well but not brilliant. Yesterday Lindsey was very poor. Overall as a group they seem okay but when against premier pass rushers and front four that can generate pressure they don't hold up well. That was the tale at LAC as well. Our defence is good enough to win when our offence plays well. It is not strong enough to win a game on its own.

    So what's the vibe after today's game, do we still need to give up some draft capital and some cap space and go out and get a receiver?
  6. 2019 WR Corps

    Kendrick Bourne of the 49ers is another name to look at, 6ft 1, 203lbs, this is his 3rd year, last year had 42 catches for 487 yards, currently only has 6 receptions for 70 yards. Again he is buried on the depth chart behind Goodwin, Pettis and Deebo. Bourne would again have some familiarity with what MLF wants to run.
  7. 2019 WR Corps

    Couple of other names to think about both buried on the Rams depth chart who would be familiar with MLF and the system also probably more getable than the names currently being thrown about and could be a good replacement for GMO if he is injured for a while: The more attractive: Josh Reynolds, 6'3, 196lbs, 3 year player, had 29 receptions and 402 yards with 5 tds last year and up to this point has had only two catches The less attractive: Mike Thomas, 6'1, 189 lbs, 4th year player, best season was when MLF was there in 2017 when he had 5 receptions for 93 yards, not earth shattering
  8. Packers & Eagles Postgame

    Not sure if already stated but this was interesting stat I came across. Packers Passing percentage on 1st down : 1st qtr = 56%, 2nd qtr = 53%, 3rd qtr = 39%, 4th qtr = 24%. The Packers are getting further behind the down/distance after 1st down as the game goes on, because they are (mistakenly) running more on 1st down as the game goes on. That's why we have only scored 6 points in the 4th quarter in all games this season. Interesting.
  9. Just thinking about Rodgers and LeFleur and I wondered is Rodgers the QB that LeFleur wants? It then made me think do coaches and QBs form a kind of marriage where once you been with one for any given period it is hard to move on to another? That both QB and coach become intertwined and that also as a QB if all you have only known is one system or one coach that the QB becomes like an old man, stuck in his ways and hard to adapt or move on. Are QBs like Penguins where they mate for life with a coach and never move on after? I compiled a quick list going back 10 years of QBs and coaches who won Super Bowls and yes it is dominated by Brady and Belichick but even then most the other winners share this trait. Patriots – Brady & Bilecheck – only coach he has known Eagles – Wentz & Pederson - only coach he has known - both joined the Eagles in 2016 Patriots – Brady & Bilecheck – only coach he has known Broncos – Manning & Kubiak – not only coach he has known Patriots – Brady & Bilecheck – only coach he has known Seahawks – Wilson & Carrol – only coach he has known Ravens – Flacco & Harbaugh – only coach he knew at that time - both joined the Ravens in 2008 Giants – Manning & Coughlin - only coach he has won anything with - both joined the Giants in 2004 Packers – Rodgers & McCarthy – only coach he has won anything with Saints – Bress & Payton – last 13 years with the same coach - both joined the Saints in 2006 We see that also with other winning QBs and coaches, Dak, Goff, Mahomes. If we look at Favre he had his MVPs and Super Bowl win under Holmgren. So the point being is it unfair to think that Rodgers and LeFleur will bring about the same level of offensive success that Rodgers had with McCarthy and that will LeFleur only have real success once he gets his own QB to shape and mould and grow with?

    Ohh thanks I just checked again. A few weeks all they had was really old ones but it looks like now they are putting them. Thank you
  11. Random Packer News & Notes

    Quick question, I live in the UK and I used to love watching 5 Questions with LeRoy Butler. Trouble is because of new rulings with data protection the JSonline Packers site displays a different version for Europen users which doesn't have the show. Question is can I get access to it another way or is that show put out anywhere else? I tried using a VPN but it doesn't work so well with the site.
  12. 2019 WEEK 3 PACKERS vs broncos GAME DAY THREAD

    Not disagreeing but currently, Mathew seems to be playing okay in LA, 2 sacks and a force fumble. I wasn't expecting him to be quite so productive
  13. Packers & Vikings Postgame

    Is it me or do I think this offence is really run by Rodgers. The way MLF talks to him, sits beside him, it's like a soft daddy keeping his spoilt kid happy. For me, for Rodgers to not know it is 4th down and 1 and MLF hasn't already got the field goal unit coming out or communicated that to Rodgers it just amazes me. It highlights who is really running the show. Or am I reading into something that is not there...
  14. Packers & Bears Postgame

    I thought the only thing that worried me about Rodgers was when he was passing to the flats. Same problem he had last year and was not far from getting picked off three times last night. Apart from that was a not bad performance by Rodgers, liked it that when we were pinned back near our own goal line we managed to get positive yardage.
