  1. Packers Training Camp 2019

    Thanks. It was supposed to be a no-tackle drill and Davis got drilled and facemasked at the same time. Still not sure exactly what happened.

    What happened in the Davis return?
  3. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    Social media can reveal a lot of mysteries that the press is too lazy to find out. I had to do a lot of rooting around, but this is what happened. It turns out the baggage agent overheard and misheard a comment that Davis made privately to his girlfriend, the agent called in the authorities, and they were going to let him go until they found out he was in the NFL, then they decided to make an example out of him, because they wanted the publicity that arresting an NFL player would bring. If he was an average Joe, nothing would have happened, because he did nothing wrong. He wasn't even arrested or booked, or jailed, he made the next plane out. You're exactly right 1265, poor kid got railroaded.

    That's not what he said. I love social media, you can find out a lot. He made a comment to his girlfriend something along the lines that they were lucky they didn't pack the explosives. The agent overheard him, but didn't hear him clearly, and thought he said something else.

    Agnew is damn good, but he had two muffs, Davis 0.
  6. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    According to Pro Football Focus, Davis was #1 in 2017, and by a wide margin too- https://twitter.com/search?q="trevor davis""pff"&src=typd

    Stats are great, aren't they? These were from playerprofiler dot com https://www.playerprofiler.com/nfl/davante-adams/

    LaFleur isn't stupid. Davis is the most dynamic player, running with the ball, that we have. Even with what few pro stats we have, Davis still has it, he averages over 2 yards of separation per catch (albeit with a few amount of targets). For example- Davis 2.29 yards of separation per target (2017) MVS 1.46 (2018) DA 1.67 (2018) He's still pretty good with YAC too- Davis 4.4 yards per target yards after catch MVS 3.0 Davante 2.7 Obviously, circumstances and targets are different with all three receivers, Davis has a much smaller catch sampling. I'm just saying that Davis isn't the chopped liver that most of you think he is. And we have him on a rookie contract, he's a bargain and isn't going anywhere.

    Actually, it wouldn't be surprising at all. He's a receiver, had all of 14 punt returns his entire college career, and yet became the best punt returner in the NFL his first year returning. I watched Davis at Cal, he really caught my attention when he returned two consecutive kickoffs for touchdowns on his first two career kickoff returns. Fans are so critical of his judgement mistakes fielding punts, but they should keep in mind he had very little experience fielding punts when GB made him their returner in 2017. But he's a receiver first, he's a returner in his spare time. His senior year, playing the 11th hardest schedule in college ball, he had a 1 1/2% drop rate, and lead all power five conference receivers (SEC, PAC12, Big 10, ACC, and one other) in yards after catch with 9.5 yards per. An amazing stat, and no one else was even close. You can be sure that LaFleur 1) recognizes how good Davis is as a receiver 2) is going to get him the ball this year. Get Davis in your Fantasy League, buy low and win.
  10. Nice stats. Football Outsiders has some interesting Special Teams numbers. They rate a team's punt and kickoff returns by "how many points the return is worth compared to average" Not exactly sure what that means, but it has something to do with where you start your drives after kickoff and punt returns. Here's our stats for the last two years- Kick returns 2018 -4.5 points (no Davis) 2017 +.2 points (with Davis) Punt returns 2018 -9.2 points (no Davis) 2017 +4.0 points (with Davis) I'll put it another way- 2018 -3.9 net yards per return vs our opponents (no Davis) 2017 + 4.5 net yards per return vs our opponents (with Davis) At approximately 60 returns per year, in 2017 we won Special Teams field position when Davis was the returner and gunner, he netted us an additional 280 extra yards of field position compared to our returners in 2018. One guy, who you all hate, accounted for a 6 1/2% increase our total yardage all by himself. Here's one example how important Special Teams are. In the Seattle game last year, we lost by 3 points. Davis had a 55 yard kickoff return called back. On that one play, that holding call (not even close to where Davis was running), cost us 13% of our total yardage for the day. Instead of starting at our 45 yard line (worth 2 1/2 points by Football Outsiders), we started at the Seattle 10 yard line (a starting position worth -1 points). A 45 yard loss in field position, and a 3 1/2 point difference that could have won the game. I know it's not a given that we would have scored, but the metrics are based on the NFL's season's stats, so there's logical calculations behind those numbers. Bottom line, we need Trevor Davis.
  11. Raiders release Jordy Nelson

    Jordy Nelson isn't slow. NFL NextGenStats posts the top 20 fastest ball carriers each week of the season. In 2018, Nelson made the top 20 three times, our Marquez Valdes-Scantling also three times, Davante Adams twice, and Trevor Davis once (not bad for only touching the ball 5 or 6 times). No other Green Bay players made the list. Fastest time for each player 2018- 21.97 mpg- Jordy Nelson 21.13- Marquez Valdes-Scantling 20.35- Trevor Davis 20.23- Davante Adams Jordy Nelson was faster than every player on our team last year.
  12. I'm with you. There's no reason for all those hamstring injuries, no reason at all.
  13. Wide Receiver Outlook

    Certainly- https://thebiglead.com/2015/11/18/fielding-punts-inside-the-10-in-the-nfl-what-do-the-facts-show/
  14. Wide Receiver Outlook

    1) 78% of punts that land between the 9 yard line and the 5 do NOT end up in the end zone. 2) The 3 yard line is the Mendoza line for fielding punts these days. He fielded the punts exactly where he should have. Why would you say he's just as likely to muff a ball as break a long return? He had 0 muffs last year, and 21% of his returns went for over 20 yards (2 of them got called back). He was rated by Pro Football Focus as the #1 punt returner in the league last year, in part because of no muffs.
  15. Wide Receiver Outlook

    Notre Dame had a team QB completion percentage of 51.7%. ESB had a catch rate of 44.6%. The next most targeted receiver at Notre Dame was a Sophomore named Claypool (6-4 228). His catch rate was 64.4%.
