  1. Random Packer News & Notes

    Yikes "I was hacked" in 3...2...1...
  2. NFL News & Notes

    The Vikings are actually a fairly competent organization when it comes to personnel issues, no way they pay a running back who doesn't really even have leverage.

    I mean, the man was getting scammed on jewelry by the same guy from 2002 through 2017 when he got the pieces independently appraised. He threw his weight behind the Romney Pilates studio boondoggle in New Orleans, and he tried to get the city to bulldoze a nature preserve for a private soccer stadium. He was a spokesman for the Advocare pyramid scheme. He appeared in an ad with "Focus on the Family" without bothering to check why that organization might have been controversial. Putting the politics aside (though he did cut ties with his own mother over politics), Drew Brees is just not a smart person. He may, in fact, be genuinely stupid.

    Drew Brees is not a smart man.
  5. Really, teams never should have been able to block a guy interviewing for what is essentially a promotion.

    The real issue if you (and the people) are reckless in terms of "how rapidly we get things back to normal" then the pain from this is going to last longer. If everybody crowds bars and clubs and movie theaters and there's an explosion of cases then we're going to be back in "lockdown" for much sooner and for a lot longer than if we were cautious.
  7. 1.26 - Jordan Love [QB; Utah State]

    I mean, the thing about Love is that the upside is phenomenal, but he's going to take some work and some time. So he made the most sense for a team that had a guy in place who can sustain you until Love is ready. I don't think you can make the pick if you're pitting Gardner Minshew against Jordan Love, since that's going to hurt both of those guys.
  8. I think the real proposal that would make progress is to force teams to disclose (either to the NFL or to the public, possibly different things to each) why they chose one candidate from the final pool of candidates instead of another. If you're thinking about it, and the reason you're going to hire coach A instead of coach B ultimately boils down to "he's white, and that makes me more comfortable" then you might want to reconsider your decision.
  9. 1. The NFL is great at half-measures that make everybody feel bad. 2. It's not a thing about "PoC" coaches and executives, what they really mean is "black", since the big incongruity is "how many black men play football" and "how many black men are involved in coaching and front office stuff." 3. It's impossible (in America) to be racist against white people since racism is prejudice+power; it's possible to be prejudiced against white people but let's be real about who has power here. 4. This is probably not going to do much, even if it does pass.

    Can't he use his $1200 ronabux like everyone else?
  11. Warrants issued for DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar

    I'm sort of confused how "I'm going to lose $70,000 in a card game" and "I'm going to get that $70,000 back via armed robbery" are thoughts that can exist in the mind of the owner of the same bank account.

    IMO the real problem isn't that "things are reopening" it's that "not enough progress was made in terms of developing contact tracing, testing, etc. infrastructure" during the time that was bought through the months of limited movement. You can't stay closed literally forever, but you need to have a handle on things like South Korea before you can start playing baseball again like South Korea.

    I feel like for a lot of businesses "reopening" is going to kill them faster since people aren't going to, like, "go to restaurants" even if they are open for dine-in. After all, restaurant business was way down *before* they were mandated to close their doors- when people were avoiding them purely voluntarily.

    In the Spanish Flu of 1918, the second wave was a lot worse than the first. The real question is "what are we going to do to mitigate the harm of the second wave in the fall or whenever". I still don't plan on being within 6' of other humans any time soon.
  15. 3.94 - Josiah Deguara [TE; Cincinnati]

    People in the media lost their GD minds when the Seahawks took Bruce Irvin in 2012. But wouldn't have done so had they taken "higher rated" guys like Quinten Coples, Shea McClellin, or Nick Perry. Irvin is still in the league.
