  3. My apologies, as I too tried to read into the response when I should not have.
  4. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    He hasn't needed to restructure, considering they never signed any FAs. And even then, last year was the first year he even had a cap hit over $20M a year. They had plenty of money to bring players in, if they had wanted to do so.
  5. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    How about a decade of down seasons like the 80s?
  6. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    I personally think they should have got rid of McCarthy about 3-4 years ago because, despite their record from 2014-16, they have been riding Rodgers' arm for far too long (I'd almost call it the Dan Marino method) and haven't given him enough support via the running game or defense. While I'm certain that, should they choose to fire McCarthy, they will hire an offensive-minded coach, I'd like another defensive-minded coach in this division to go with Zimmer and Patricia...and bring back the Black and Blue division. But, that's probably only me. I'd like to see them hire a guy like Fangio (stealing him from the Bears) or give Gus Bradley another shot (as I'm not confident that he had the right support in Jacksonville). With that said, I tend to agree with Cear, I was never all that impressed with McCarthy's management style of the team. I think he has been okay (and it's hard to argue with the results), but he's never struck me as an elite head coach.
  7. The 2018 Playoff Hunt is on!

    I'm not sure anyone ever said it was going to be amazing, but it was projected to be deeper than the AFC. And to a degree, it still is, despite the lackluster play. The entire NFL, as far as I am concerned, is lackluster...probably because of the atrocious offensive line play throughout the league and the way they've neutered defense.
  8. What? It's not that it's not going to be competitive, but there are other games I'm far more concerned about, most notably road games at NE and at Seattle. Don't be so sensitive.
  9. The 2018 Playoff Hunt is on!

    I find it absolutely amazing that the Packers have the best chance in the division to make the playoffs according to this lady... http://www.nfl.com/videos/game-theory/0ap3000000988309/Game-Theory-Week-11-playoff-percentages
  10. And that's one of the least I'm worried about.
  11. Week 11: VIKINGS (5-3-1) at Bears (6-3)

    It depends upon what you mean by pressure. There's pressure every week, and the Vikings have been prepared to deal with it for several years now, which the Bears have not, since they haven't been in the limelight at all...even this year. They may still feel the need to prove themselves and that can create pressure all on its own. Mack has only played against the Vikings once in his career (in 2015), and if I recall, was largely quiet, but he did get a sack on Teddy. Obviously, he's on a better team now, but I'm not going to just take for granted that he's going to be the key, because he was pretty quiet against TJ Clemmings or Matt Kalil (I can't recall which one), of all people. Not exactly top-shelf players.
  12. I'm favoring the 10-5-1 at this point. While it's still early to think about, it should be noted that the 2019 Vikings' opponents will be: Home: Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, Philly, Washington, Denver, Oakland, Carolina/New Orleans Away: Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, NY Giants, Kansas City (I'll be there), LA Chargers, Dallas, Rams/Seahawks
  13. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I still have this feeling that it'll be the Saints-Vikings in the NFC Championship Game one more time.
  14. 5,000 or Bust '18

    Like I said, never fails...I pick a prolific NFL QB, he has his worst week ever. Tom Brady and Kirk, notwithstanding. Total: 2,519 yds Average: 251.90 yds On Pace: 4,282.30 yds (-99.92 yds from last week) Week 11: Matt Ryan
