    I still think it's hilarious that you can't say **** Butkus, **** Vermeil, or **** Tracy.

    Yes and yes, but I still hope his hair has a good year.

    Ego is a quaint conceptual framework for describing that which actually comes from an enlarged medulla oblongata.
  4. Packers signing Former Bears Safety Adrian Amos

    From one passionate amateur to another, nice work on the seamless editing of the Amos image ^

    Agree on Z. He's a guy that wants to be good at his job and treats people well. He is a nice combination of goofy and serious. I disagree on Preston. I mean, yes he measures his words carefully, but I think that is his way of trying to behave like a professional. Amos was a lot like Preston. He just left a highly successful defense and teammates he cared about to play for a bitter rival. He doesn't want to say anything, and neither would any of the rest of us. We would just want to get to work. Turner is unlike anything we've seen. He is really easy to like. Man I hope he balls for us.

    My hot take: Red herring to keep teams from trading ahead of our trade-down to snag the TE we want with our first pick. After that he can collect his parting gifts at the receptionist's desk.

    Applause. I like the slots at which you addressed positions. As the draft unfolds I am curious to see if Gutey and his scouts have found any OL gems hidden in the mix. There seems to be only a very few quality O linemen this year, and it would be easy to miss out on them in exchange for other positions you really like in the middle rounds.

    Agreed. I didn't mean to denigrate officials so much as to suggest that horrible parents are helping to limit the pool of individuals willing to officiate games. McCarthy was always known to be a classy guy, even if his coaching skills were in doubt. This was a sad story.
  10. Random Packer News & Notes

    You know, it wasn't that long ago that anyone suggesting that McCarthy was untested as a coach beyond being a warm body with a HoF quarterback and that the team might consider firing him was met with a maelstrom of pushback saying that McCarthy wouldn't last ten minutes on the street before being hired by his next NFL team. I am surprised that he is unravelling in this way, though. Prep referees suck pretty badly, and they suck because so few knowledgeable sports fans want to subject themselves to the abuse.

    You Workaholic, you. Is there a roof on your cubicle? Phone goes to voicemail? Pretend to be talking to a client when people walk by? What are the secrets to your success?

    Pretty close to my ideal draft position-wise. Lead with edge or DL, safety/TE/OL with next three picks. If another position sneaks into the mix it really needs to be a BPA steal. Double dips where possible at S, TE, or OL.
  13. Would you consider these two at #12 and #30?

    Sure. I agree with this. When I have agreed with the proposition that we draft Hock at 12 or we don't get him, it simply means that he probably will not be there at 30, and he won't be there by 44. Nobody should pick a tight end at 12. Boy, I'd consider him if he is still there at 30 and I'll throw things should somebody pick him just before our third pick in the draft. He blocks and runs great routes.

    I play around with Fanspeak just to learn the prospect’s names and determine the relative range that one might expect to see players drafted. Using our own picks last night’s excursion into pre-draft timewasting yielded... Ferrell Hockenson Adderly D Edwards OT Wisconsin Anderson DL Iowa Chuma Edoga OT USC Cameron Smith LB USC Etc.
  15. Aaron Rodgers Depreciation Thread

    ^ I see the nice gain to Adams, but I also see the interior line crumble and nearly get Rodgers killed. Byron Bell wasn't doing anything else so at least he got a good view of the play.
