  1. rank the roster: 2019 edition (#22)

    My take is always “Who could we least afford to lose?” Of all the players left I think EQB is figuring most prominently as a player with a defined role on his side of the ball, although Lowry is right there also. Brown and Jackson kind of cancel each other out, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them makes a case for bumping way up this list next year.

    Absolutely... your comment made me wonder if a Forrest Gregg would have made it in the modern era (I suspect he would have), and it made wonder further how many talented others from 60+ years ago weren’t willing to put the time into a game that didn’t reward them well enough to give up a secure job in the middle classes of manufacturing and mining.

    Just think how many country strong and steel- minded potential NFL Hall of Famers were HS legends in the 1930s-50s but got married instead and followed their daddies into the mines, steel mills, and farm fields of an American landscape that had yet to make pro football a modern colosseum.

    The only repeating gif burned into my brain harder than Kyler Fackrell rushing onto the field late and getting knocked onto his skinny ineffective butt over and over is the one with the “Where’s Waldo?” Vikings cheerleader. I know it’s stupid to hold her against me... ...I mean, that against him... ...but I literally need to see another half dozen good games from him before I believe.

    The Packers website lists Jace Sternberger @ 6’4” and 251 lb on their “Meet the 2019 Draft Class” rundown. Just below that article Cliff Kristalnacht writes about Forrest Gregg and reports that he was 6’4” and 249 lb. Hot take: for two dudes the same size they seem awfully different from one another.

    My god we are! It’s like the Packer version of Big Bang Theory. Next name change season I have dibs on “Bill Schröedinger’s Cat”.

    Around here, hindsight is always 50/50... ...otherwise good points!

    That was interesting. We were lucky to win that game. Our offense looked like my golf game...if I hit the green in regulation I am sure to 4-putt. Hit a drive 290 to the middle...squank my 7 iron into the woods. Parts weren’t always working together.

    I grant that he was very valuable to us during his heyday in GB, but what is the explanation for his performance for other teams after his time here? Was he really that good if you look at the entire arc of his career?

    I have to tell myself that there have been some great ones in the mold of Frank Winters and Mark Tauscher.

    Yikes. There goes my stiffy for 2019.

    Not quibbling with that thought much, FG, just taking this opportunity to get in a shot at Fackrell... In all honesty I think he lucked into his pressures and sacks by being the least thought about and least schemed for player on GB's defense.
