  2. Packers Training Camp 2019

    I went to the Mole Lake Bluegrass festival two days after having my wisdom teeth out. I recommend beer and Jack Daniels and John Hartford to hurry the healing process along.

  4. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Yeah that was some rapidfire consensus on football not working that way. I won’t be able to understand this issue at all without a proper food analogy. Is a nose tackle 5 pounds of 30/70 ground beef?
  5. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Rashan was reported to have an unusually well thought out plan to represent himself as an NFL football player, and, by the time of the draft, he had already taken steps to create his own agency that could someday represent other players as well. Instead of reporting this as a young man with drive and ambition, it was reported that his business represented a distraction and a lack of interest in pro football.
  6. Aaron Rodgers Appreciation Thread 4.20

    Jack Baer from Yahoo sports has an article up quoting Carl Lawson from the Bengals. Carl collected two and a half sacks against Rodgers in their last matchup, prompting him to remark that playing against Rodgers is easy because he “just sits there”. Since Bulaga and Bakhtiari were both out for that game, let’s just call the article clickbait and move on.

    Sorry to hear that. However I only wish to comment that "waive" is such an excellent verb for dismissing a player. As in we don't have much to say as you go so we'll just wave as you leave. I always have that picture in my mind of a released player walking out of HR and down the hallways with team employees waving goodbye.
  8. 3[75]: Jace Sternberger [TE; Texas A&M]

    Was he a holdout? My understanding was that there was a peculiarity about slotting 3rd round pick salaries and that the process would take a while, which it did.

    That seems like a can of worms. And I don’t think an unfairly called PI is as much of a problem as the obvious PIs that go uncalled. Is that being addressed?
  10. Bart Starr passes away at age 85

    Young Mark Murphy is right behind him. Ed took him aside and said, "Never fix that gap in your teeth. It will be your trademark." Also, there was a cosmic disturbance in the Force when the advent of television coincided with men's desire to wear tight houndstooth patterned jackets that disrupted video transmissions. If you were born in the 70's or after you don't know this. If a hostile civilization from another solar system is alerted to our presence and turns the planet into a hydrogen/carbon mining outpost it will be because television sports reporters from the 1960's insisted on wearing plaid jackets that created blinding video flares.

    To be clear, the pageantry of the Kindergarten graduation was splendid. Children are cool. In such a setting the well-behaved are precious and the ill-behaved are entertaining, and they also set a wonderfully low bar for comparing to the little ones that carry my DNA onward.
  12. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    I just want to go on record, as a crotchety old man that got dragged to a kindergarten graduation, that there may be an inverse relationship between the amount of balloons and flowers a six-year old gets on a day that marks nothing more than 180 days of enrollment, if not actual attendance, and the likelihood that the child actually graduates 12 years from now. This may be the family’s last shot to celebrate. Also, on a semi-related note, helium is the second most plentiful element on our planet, but the world supply is rapidly diminishing. Once released it cannot be recovered by any practical means. All the more reason for people to spend twenty bucks on latex, mylar, and a few cubic feet of a rapidly diminishing supply of a useful noble gas to give ostentatious notice of their regard for the minuscule achievements of a small child or the considerable and serious achievement of a near-adult—with balloons. Holy #### where’s the Tylenol!

    I know what you mean, somehow 26 seems feeble. But, as I told my son when he missed out on his favorite number in high school, the player makes the number, pal, not the other way around.
  14. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    I thought he meant non contributor, but it is possible he meant non contrez boucher, which might mean, though my French is rusty, “ not an impersonation of a butcher.”
  15. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    Back when they were drafted a guy from Great Blue North Draft Report said that MVS would break out first and J'Mon last, with J'Mon having the highest ceiling. The first part has been proven to be correct, and the second part is still wait and see, with the giddy possibility that they all are pretty good #2 receivers eventually.
