  1. 2019 GB TEAM Needs

    Who did he lose credibility with ? Some fans on a message board ? Have you spoken to Lancaster, Clark, Adams, Lowery and the guys GB will draft in April ? Have you been in The Room or on the sidelines on Sunday ? This whole thing is just fan projection.
  2. 2019 GB TEAM Needs

    So, he's only a 7.3 instead of an 8.5 ? Packers don't have another Silverback in that room - and they need at least one Very difficult to bring in an outsider to assume that role, even harder to draft one So the needle-moving requirements are specific to each team, each position group. I believe our young DL crew benefits significantly from having Mr. Daniels in the room and on the field on Sunday
  3. Cowboys fire OC Scott Linehan

    Should we add Dak to the Coach Killer thread ?
  4. 2019 GB TEAM Needs

    Lots of concerns/angst over the current state of the Packers roster Vegas is already out with their future bets for NEXT years Superb Owl Packers come in at 16-1, the 8th best odds in the league http://www.vegasinsider.com/nfl/odds/futures/
  5. Mike Pettine Defense

    Couple of Pettine quotes via Packers.com “Everything is being built essentially from scratch,” Pettine said. “And you already start Year 2 well ahead of where you would have been in Year 1. So of course, naturally, most people would want to feel like, ‘Hey, I started something, I want to finish it.’” “Just from a personal standpoint, just the year this has been, getting back in, and the enjoyment being around the players, … being around the coaching staff, building a plan, going out and practicing it, teaching it, implementing it … it's what I love to do,” Pettine said, “and I don't know if I necessarily see that changing anytime soon.”
  6. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Thx Gents My post on the rookie pool was more about the relative size of the allocation as a measure of how much draft capital GB has going into April. GB drafts at # 12, but has the 5th largest allocation, due in large part to Das Gute's moves to acquire an extra 1st and an extra 4th last year. GB has the most capital available since the 2009 draft, which produced Raji, Matthews and a Superb Owl http://www.tankathon.com/nfl/power_rankings
  7. Should the Steelers get rid of Antonio Brown?

    Good call. Chiefs are winning with a plethora of weapons and spreading it around. Zero value in adding a 31 yr old diva WR who won't be happy sharing the wealth and the limelight Q: When the Steelers trade him, can the acquiring team eat some of the prorated SB ? I thought I remembered when Osweiler got traded, it was both picks and cash changing hands Could Pitt say to SF: We want a 2nd OR we'll take a 3rd if you eat some of the cap $$ ? Is that permissible ?

    Packers 2019 Rookie Pool allocation from OTC https://overthecap.com/draft/ With 10 draft picks, GB comes in at $ 10, 275, 003 Only 4 teams have a higher allocation than GB
  9. EDGE Free Agents

    Here's a quote from Das Gute shortly after Pettine arrived last year: “Back then, we were going from a 4-3 to a 3-4, and quite frankly, at that time, there wasn’t as much sub-packaging back then (as there is now),” said Gutekunst. "Now, the way (Pettine) may use percentages and different packages on the field, (that) may change a little bit. But the pieces, I don’t think they’re changing as significantly as they did back in 2009.”
  10. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    I'm not saying its rocket surgery, but I've read elsewhere that there are indeed nuances to the way its taught and deployed. Why were you advocating for a veteran OL coach vs a guy "learning on the job" if its all the same ? Not challenging you PR, I genuinely want to learn more about it and appreciate you sharing your insight

    But he also has 2 cats, that's the worst thing ever for a football coach
  12. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    I don't know if its underblown or overblown - but there are very specific ways in which the system is coached and the HC wants guys who will teach it the way he wants. In your spare time, watch some Alex Gibbs tutorials, he's brilliant at coaching the ZBS and his salty language adds to the entertainment value. He really gets after guys As noted by others, Campen is gone for other reasons. But I'm not going to dismiss the idea that MLF wants a guy who coaches the OL exactly the way he wants it coached. I'm also of a mind that there isn't just one method to teach or deploy a ZBS blocking scheme and matching that up with the RB and QB footwork is important for the HC / playcaller/ offensive success The Foot-Work "The ZBS scheme relies on angles to win not power. The footwork of the men in the trenches is vital to establishing these angles. When executed perfectly the ZBS scheme appears to be a synchronized dance." Here's a lengthy breakdown on some of the facets of a ZBS scheme and it highlights some of the many nuances involved https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2013/5/27/4363750/zone-blocking-running-football-breakdown-highlights-analysis-diagram
  13. Note: Hackett keeps his Sharpie on the side of his Cabeza while MM kept his in the back That's the kind of major upgrade the Packers offense needs heading into 2019

    Here's a lengthy post from Pack to the Future, breaking down MLFs running game in Tenn One item noted is the use of pistol vs shotgun to help the running game http://www.packtothefuture.com/articles/xs-and-os-matt-lafleurs-week-1-run-game/

    former coach Brian Billick talks about AR learning a new language after 13 years in the same system From the time they start their offseason program to the first preseason game in August, what will be the biggest area of growth for the Rodgers-LaFleur relationship? The biggest thing is verbiage, getting comfortable with the verbiage. It’s like teaching another language. A veteran player will pick up the concepts very quickly, but like when you learn a language, you can speak a language, but are you thinking the language? When they get to that point where, OK, here’s the concept that LaFleur is running and here’s what they call it and what they do, initially Aaron is going to go, ‘Oh, OK, that was our this.’ He’ll translate it in his mind. Your 22 Z-In, to use a Bill Walsh term, is our 816 Y-Clear, to use verbiage from Joe Gibbs. Same play, but it’s called something different. So when he stops thinking 22 Z-In is 816 Y-Clear and just knows immediately and doesn’t have to translate it … that’s when they’ll start to accelerate the process.
