  1. NFL News & Notes

    WTF ? How does this make sense for the Seahawks ? "According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the Seahawks offered the Colts a second-round pick for Jacoby Brissett. Obviously the Colts didn't feel that was enough to move him. The offense struggled with Brissett under center last year, though clearly Indianapolis still views him as an important insurance policy for Andrew Luck"
  2. Aaron Rodgers and new contract

    Yes and no Andrew Brandt wrote about this in one of his blog posts. When there's only 1 year left, it changes the negotiation position and it shifts from the team having the upper hand... to the player/agent having the upper hand. There's always plus/minus to all of this, so I'm not saying you're wrong either. But there's a "cost" to waiting that figures into the overall discussion. The other part is that AR will be "cheaper" in 2018 than he will be in 2019 as the cap rises and other lesser QBs sign their new deals.
  3. Do you sell the Hundley stock while it is high?

    Packers can dump Hundley onto the open market as chum for the QB-hungry crowd; that makes it easier to slide Boyle to the PS....
  4. Packers sign TE Jimmy Graham

    Man does he look stoked to be in Green Bay. Sign me up for another dozen of these at Lambeau this year
  5. The thing that's interesting from the Raiders side of the coin is that their SB window doesn't open for another couple years. Its often year 3-4 of the new HC regime when teams make their run. And that corresponds with their move to Las Vegas. They're not going anywhere in 2018, and even 2019 seems questionable In the mean time, they are stretched on cap space and cash flow. The other part of it from the Raiders POV is that the 2019 draft is loaded with top defenders including Ed Oliver and Nick Bosa By moving Mack now, they recoup the cash flow, the cap space and they re-set the clock on their defense. IF they have (3) 1sts to go up and get Bosa / Oliver - then they'll have young ascending talent to replace Mack. Its almost like a Time Machine in terms of grabbing a 21 year old in exchange for a 27 year old. And for the teams with the 1st or 2nd pick of the draft - nobody else has the ammo that the Raiders would have to move up. Fans have opined that there is no freaking way that the Raiders would move Mack, but if you consider the Big Picture, its possible that there's a future value to them that supersedes the current value in terms of syncing up with their Championship window. Without a loaded draft class, the move doesn't work. But with a loaded draft class, maybe it does. The Packers won't have the draft capital to go get one of those very Top Defenders, even with N.O's pick added to their own. Not saying there won't be talent available at pick 10-15 , but the beast pass rushers will all be gone by then.
  6. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    "Free agent OLB Junior Galette will visit the Rams on Sunday. It's the first interest in Galette since he met with the Raiders in April. Galette returned after a two-year layoff last season, posting three sacks over 407 snaps. He would be rotational depth for the Rams." Some here had mentioned Junior as a possibility for the Packers at OLB
  7. Mike Pettine Defense

    What does the CB depth chart look like in mid - August ? Nickel/Slot : Alexander, Tramon, Waters Outside: King, Tramon, House, Jackson, Pipkins / Waters
  8. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Morgan Burnett wasn’t expecting to see his face on the scoreboard Thursday night at Lambeau Field, or the Green Bay Packers to recognize the eight years he spent in Wisconsin. The Packers welcomed back the Pittsburgh Steelers safety after the third quarter of the preseason game. Morgan Burnett got an ovation when he showed up on the video board . Burnett smiled and waved to the crowd in appreciation. “That totally surprised me,” Burnett said.
  9. Mike Pettine Defense

    https://thedraftnetwork.com/2018/08/17/packers-cb-josh-jackson-and-the-value-of-takeaways/ "The game of football is about plays that change the scoreboard and plays that change possession. Josh Jackson made a play that did both on Thursday night, and it won’t be the last time he does." Article talks about the reasons why Jackson was downgraded in the draft process and then notes his ability to make impact plays anyways
  10. Win Total in Vegas is currently set at 10 victories for 2018
  11. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Then ya gotta clean up the glass and the blood stains and explain it to the neighbors. Both are acceptable, but the bus is clearly the cleaner option
  12. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Through the window seems a bit extreme and leaves a mess. I think under the bus is the preferred method for Mother's in Law - and yes, she earned it with those blasphemous comments
  13. Offensive PlayThings

    Not sure, but I don't think Lane Taylor played last night. On the pass from Hundley to Marcedes Lewis, that looked like a 2 TE set as well
  14. Offensive PlayThings

    From Ben Fennell "Aaron Rodgers played 7 snaps vs PIT... 6 of those snaps were the same players in 12 personnel and used a variety of formations to align them... Already seeing more in ‘18. We also saw plenty of TEs lined up as iso in 3x1 - Lewis, Tonyan, Graham all saw snaps out wide as the X..."
  15. Preseason Week 2 - GDT vs. Pittsburgh

    " A source said tests showed Justin McCray sustained just a calf contusion that should not keep him out long, if at all"
  16. I noted that we don't have one of these Rodgers threads on the new FF Here's a link to the previous one, 3.0 from the old site http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=576971 This article linked below is from Mina Kimes at espn seems like a great launch point for the new Rodgers thread. Really a well-done piece and they both talk about the search for higher meaning in life. For these truly elite players ( think Michael Jordan) there is often a feeling of emptiness, that something is missing after they achieve the highest rung in sports. "What's next ?" A life spent totally focused on achievements needs a new direction and challenge and like Jordan, Rodgers is seeking enlightenment. Jordan and Phil Jackson turned to a book called "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior " Rodgers has found other writings, some recommended by a pastor he met in GB Really a well done article and offers a peek into the private Rodgers. http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/page/enterpriseRodgers/green-bay-packers-qb-aaron-rodgers-unmasked-searching " It had been six years since Rodgers' trip to the Super Bowl, and Pastor Bell still remembers what his friend told him after he won: " "'I've been to the bottom and been to the top, and peace will come from somewhere else.'"
  17. What would you offer for Khalil Mack?

    Packer fans are always dreaming of another Title Reggie White comes to town, Championship follows Charles Woodson comes to town, Championship follows Julius Peppers comes to town, Championship eludes them as epic meltdown in Seattle robs them of the chance Khalil Mack might come to town ?....Hope is re-ignited Packers don't get many chances at the Top 5 picks in the draft, so when one is potentially available - we get irrationally exuberant We certainly appreciate how unlikely it is, but there's nothing wrong with dreaming about adding a game-changing Defender
  18. Packers sign TE Jimmy Graham

    This is sooooo cool to see...
  19. Do you sell the Hundley stock while it is high?

    McCray is clearly open, throw the damn ball
