  1. Random Packer News & Notes

    Physics jokes? I'll take "Turtles All The Way Down".
  2. Mark Murphy must go!!

    Pretty much this. It all seems a hatchet job about not much. It sounds like no matter who has the final say they all listen to each other, especially within their expertise. That's a good situation.

    Sure but "late round starters" is a far cry from "good St player".

    A lot of those are stretches. Lawrence Guy bounced around the league for years, did nothing here. Flynn and Hasslebeck were backup qbs only. Some of those other guys were replacement level starters too and WTF is Janis doing even mentioned?
  5. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    There weren't that many opportunities. He played well snap to snap, but he wasn't used as an edge really so we will have to see. He played well with what he was supposed to do, and that's good enough for me.
  6. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    I understand the concern about the stat line until I watched a couple Michigan games, every defensive snap. He is easily one of the best players on the field. He played more of a crashing disruptive role, letting others clean up the chaos. I am hoping to see him as a sort of "elephant" in a hybrid front. We are past the idea of 3-4/4-3 as base defense. Nickle and dime packages are the base of your D. I think Gary will be able to win 1v1s and hold double teams if need be. With Clark/Daniels/Smith(either) up front with him, someone is going to win their matchups and Martinez should be able to roam too. I think we are going to love this pick in a year or two.

    Yeah Clark is a total beast who doesn't get nearly enough love.
  8. 2020 Needs and Free Agent List

    Because I thought he was just on IR. Either way, the other two could earn a third contract.
  9. 2020 Needs and Free Agent List

    Martinez for sure. Past that I'd be thinking heavy on both lines and look for WR too in the off season. Spriggs, Murphy, or Lowry could be worth a contract. We will have to see how they play.

    Top to bottom, I think they did well. 1. Gary - moan about his lack of stats all you want. Watch him and get back to me. He played well as a power end but physically looks like an edge. I see a good football player on tape. I'm not sure if he'll end up being a high end pass rusher, but I see every reason to think he could, and confident he can be a decent player, even if I'm not sure where his best role will be. 2. Savage - A FS type who likes to hit? Sounds great. The cost to move up was good to. Not really much not to like about this pick. 3. Jenkins - here I like the player but hate the slot. He looks like a solid player but he's a g/c prospect and 44 is enough of a premium pick. That's my only complaint here 4. Sternberger I like at this slot for GB. He has nice hands and should be an option to attack the middle of the field. The late rounds we're solid. Good athletes, nice prospects. Williams late is a nice pickup at RB. Obvious ability, even with the red flags. We will see if any of them stick and develop.

    If nothing else I bet he's a demon on ST.
  12. For me personally my biggest problem with McCarthy was his unwillingness to change. From updating his schemes to his loyalty to coaches that were clearly in over their heads, he refused to make changes. Even when pressed into firing Capers, he kept the rest of the defensive staff and not much really changed. For me I see DBs looking consistently lost since Woodson left makes me really question Whitt and Perry. He kept trying to find a spot for Edgar Bennett to try and make him an OC, and just in general. It seemed he didn't want to admit the problem might have come from the coaching/management end on a fundamental level.
  13. Kenny Clark new deal coming?

    He has plenty of pass rush ability for an interior DL. Don't confuse sack # with effective pressure.
  14. Worst Case Scenario at 12:

    Ew... Please no. First off WR is of questionable value as a position. Then as a prospect, I don't like Metcalf at all.
  15. And was it worth the money invested last year? Probably not really. I have more hope for this class because they are younger, but FA is usually bad value. It's good to be careful.
