  1. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    Well, we beat Chicago, tied Minny, and lost to Detroit. So there's that.
  2. Aaron Rodgers Depreciation Thread

    Maybe with the rookie WRs they can't run a no huddle?
  3. Do you like the match ups better with Alexander and Breeland playing? I'm hoping that would allow us to play Tramon at S some to take away the deep ball. Gurley is going to be a handful.
  4. Sounds like you don't like the match ups.
  5. Let's see. An underdog playing on the road against a power house. We can do to the Rams what the 9ers almost did to us. This is the NFL. Anybody can win against any team. Pete Rozelle's dream. Stay tuned. The difference in talent between teams is very small. It's more about match ups. Anybody have any insights on match ups against the Rams?

    Analogies are used to transfer the understanding of a familiar situation to a new, different, but similar situation that is not yet understood. The problem with analogies is the new situation is only similar and not exactly the same, so while analogies are helpful, they need explanations of where they are different, and how that affects the understanding you are trying to transfer. Some of the frustrations I see on here may come from this. It would help your case to make the differences and similarities of the two cases clear. That's why I'm called Fussnputz.
  7. Hopefully King can keep his shoulder in its socket, and his groin in its pocket.
  8. Another over achiever. Hammy AND concussion. Gee, I suppose the concussion is over then?

    You were willing to settle for less in the Rodgers for Mack trade.

    Don't you have your analogy backwards? In Julio's case, the kicker would be 100/100 from over 30 yards, and 20/100 from under 30 yards. That would be hard to explain, just like Julio getting shut out in the red zone.
  11. Isn't Allison suffering from a concussion?
  12. I've only focussed on him for one game. You're probably right. He's still a valuable piece to the OL as a Swiss-knife lineman though.
  13. OK, I won't believe my lying eyes. But he looks heavier. Not saying it's fat, but he is bigger.
  14. I've always had concerns about how well McCray could move his feet. He seems to have gained a lot of weight since last year, which makes his problem worse. Watching him play, he gets beaten off the snap count and can't use his feet to get back into position. Then he ends up grabbing and getting called for holding. Or worse yet he doesn't grab and Aaron takes a shot. Bell's foot quickness isn't great, but they are an upgrade over McCray's. There was a reason McCray went undrafted. I think it might have been his lack of foot work. Rodgers health will be safer with Bell at right guard.
  15. Aaron Rodgers Depreciation Thread

    Having suffered through Rich Campbell, Jim Del Gazo, David Whitehurst, Scott Hunter, and others, I think it's safe to say that Rodgers is someone we should never stop appreciating! Although Campbell and the others may have been humbler than Rodgers, they had much to be humble about (to paraphrase Churchill.)
