  1. Raiders/Packers to play in Winnipeg, Canada week 3 of preseason

    Excellent synopsis. Not sure exactly how the cash is split but the home -team Raiders would get a larger slice of the local moneys in preseason. Dependent on their lease terms, the City of Oakland may get a taste of that money too. However, since they've been in a pissing match with the City of Oakland , I'm sure the Raiders are happy to take their circus on the road and collect some Canadian loonies instead. In some small way, the Raiders are also pimping the new Las Vegas brand, wooing the winnipeggers to the desert for some sunshine, gambling and football.
  2. Which end of the straight line ?
  3. 5[150]: Kinsley Keke [DL; Texas A&M]

    ^^^ Mr. BobGray I'm really enjoying your DL write-ups, thanks for making the effort and thanks for sharing them with us.
  4. Impressed that you dug that one out And GB traded UP to get him at pick # 87 because the HC/GM Mike Sherman was worried about somebody jumping in front of him for Sanders...
  5. packers selcet mAtt leFleUr as head coah

    Here's an article from SI talking about the growing influence of indoor football on the NFL LaFleur, Nagy, McVay and Sean Payton all took stuff from that league. Basketball on grass Our HC used to be the QB for the Omaha Beef https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/05/23/arena-football-influence-nfl-matt-nagy-matt-lafleur-omaha-beef “That game reminds me of everything in the red zone, because everything is so condensed, and in that league it was condensed wherever you were on the field,” LaFleur said. “Windows would open and close so quickly, you absolutely, 100 percent had to anticipate every throw.”

    From PackersNews It was watching LaFleur work hands-on with the quarterbacks during individual and small-group periods. If you didn’t know better, you’d have thought he was the quarterbacks coach, not the head coach, with the way he talked and gestured with them between snaps. LaFleur in effect is serving as the primary quarterbacks coach, though his quarterbacks coach by title (Luke Getsy) and offensive coordinator (Nathaniel Hackett) were always there instructing before and after each snap as well. That’s definitely a change from the four previous Packers coaches I’ve covered going back to 1993. “(LaFleur’s) big quote is, ‘If we’re right in the quarterback room we can make up for other mistakes,” said Tim Boyle Based on what LaFleur, Rodgers and Boyle have said, the hardest part for the quarterbacks isn’t any new footwork techniques they’ll eventually need to incorporate for certain plays. It’s more the new language they’re learning, and old language they’re unlearning.
  7. “I didn’t have to tell him after the season,” Pettine said of Gutekunst regarding the team’s personnel holes at the outside linebacker position. “(Gutekunst) knew what the deficiencies were and certainly wanted to add some big, explosive athletes on defense and he did that.” For his part, Pettine, whose staff was given a list of players to evaluate during the free agency and draft process, said there’s a deeper understanding, or what he calls “education” between coach and general manager. To that end, both coach and manager, according to Pettine, seemed to have a better sense of what each other was looking for heading into April “The more you’re together there’s just an understanding the type of player you’re looking for,” Pettine said.
  8. I'm Having a Baby!! Advice?

    This advice is a bit premature for a new baby/ parents. However, I strongly advise you take a class on "Re-directing children's behavior" Best thing we did as parents. In the early years ( 1-3) you find yourself running around all day saying: NO ! Don't touch that No ! don't go there No ! Don't do that No ! You can't have that..... Its tiring for both the parents and the kids Kids are wired to explore their surroundings and ya gotta give them things they can do. So instead of always saying no and just leaving it at that, you gently re-direct into something they can have. If you want to take back your car keys, our first inclination is to take them away and then the kid will scream. Instead, offer the child something else shiny and interesting and they'll drop the keys and play with what you offered. Get out of the NO business and get into the YES world, its what they need and its what you need to survive the early years.
  9. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    kids are completely trainable, but ya gotta train the trainers first People take their dogs to obedience school so they can see how a Pro does it, but parents rarely invest in learning how to be better parents and their kids behavior is a reflection of that shortcoming. I didn't want to go to the parenting classes, but it ended up being the best thing we did. Added benefit about learning how to parent kids is that now I can handle message boards too.
  10. https://www.packers.com/news/packers-looking-for-areas-of-expertise-at-receiver Following Tuesday’s open OTA practice, LaFleur explained his view of putting together a wide receiver corps. He likened it to “filling out a basketball roster,” for which the preference is to have a diverse set of skills in the group that the coaches can draw upon with their offensive play designs and calls. "So while a common question over the past couple of months has been who will replace departed free agent Randall Cobb in the slot, the answer might be no one and everyone at the same time. “It’s more concept-driven, not necessarily slot versus outside receiver,” LaFleur said. “Are you asking the guy to run a choice route, or are you asking him to take the top off and run a vertical route?” By “choice route,” LaFleur means a route within which the receiver has options for what to do and where to go, depending on the defensive coverage. It’s the type of route where the quarterback and receiver must see the field the same way and “be on the same page,” Based on that last comment, Adams and Allison would be most in sync with AR going into the season and best fits for the slot/choice routes
  11. Packers Expected to sign Za'Darius Smith

    I can understand that sentiment, but the coaches all talk about pressure and getting the QB off his spot. The timing between a QB and a WR on every play is critical and the defense wants to do anything and everything to disrupt it. The other thing that comes with applying consistent pressure is that it can influence what plays the OC will call. If yer getting in the QBs grill, they are going away from the 7 and even 5 step drops, which limits the playbook and helps the CBs An NFL defense plays about 1000 snaps in a season, lets say 600 of those are passes. A top defense might get 50 sacks, so that leaves 550 plays where you need to impact the passer. Its wayyyyyy more than a participation trophy, in many cases it influences the outcome of a game In the SB vs Pitt, Howard Green didn't sack Big Ben and Big Ben got the pass off. But Green did alter the throw and then Nick Collins took it to the house. Pressures matter immensely in disrupting an offense and Z Smith can do it well - both from outside and lined up inside
