  1. Yea, I get that there will be members that do this but had thought mods would comport themselves better. It's disappointing to see that's not the case.
  2. Random Packer News & Notes

    The salary cap has been rising regularly since 2013. If the overall cap rises, it’s inevitable that player salaries will rise. A $40m contract is worth the same % of cap this year as a $28m contract 5 years ago.

    Which teams would you say have a better DL than Green Bay?

    There are a ton of NFL tackles worse than Spriggs. To say he’s never even had a good series is just stupid.

    You seem to be looking at the wrong post. I'm not talking about the initial quote. Here's how a respectful conversation goes: Person A says "I believe [thing]". Person B says "I disagree because X, Y, and Z". Person A: "Have you considered E, F, & G?" etc. It should not take 2 posts of basically saying nothing except "you're wrong" with varying levels of snark until you start bothering to try and provide proofs to support your position. It comes across as trollish. Look, people can be snarky all they want, but they shouldn't complain when they get some back at them or quibble about the exchange ratio.

    Through the first 8 games (prior to Perry's injury), Fackrell had 184 snaps out of 530 available, putting him on track for 369 total.

    Yea, because editting quotes is so respectful...

    Try something beyond kindergarten logic. Players aren’t Madden robots. Sometimes they don’t pan out, whether they are free agents or draft picks. That’s why it would behoove a gm to take enough swings, because he doesn’t assume all of them will connect. Also, gm’s think about more than the upcoming season when getting FA’s and drafting players. Fackrell’s contract expires after this season. And maybe he had the assets and opportunity to do better than average at those positions. That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of teams that make do with worse than Fackrell at that spot. Not mutually exclusive concepts.

    Then you must be one of those fans who doesn’t pay attention to any teams except the Packers.

    We’re discussing Fackrell. I think you could do a lot worse than him as your #3 edge.

    That’s not saying much. He’s not bad, but I’m just not sure he’ll get as many snaps. Regardless of how well they play, rookie edge players drafted in the top-16 typically get around 600 snaps. When you combine that with the addition of the Smiths, idk how Fackrell could avoid a reduction in snaps. Unless there are injuries or they give him some ILB snaps (that’s where a lot of Matthews’ snaps came from when they had Peppers).

    Well, it makes perfect sense. When people invest so much energy into scapegoating and demonizing previous personnel, they would look pretty stupid if results didn’t appreciably change with the new personnel. So people will seize on the tiniest hints of promise and blow it out of proportion. Confirmation bias at its most base form.

    I assume he filled some for Daniels. His snaps went up by about 15 per game after Daniels got hurt & put on IR.

    I think it just feels like Graham is trending downward, but I agree on Savage. There is a decent hit rate of safeties when drafting in the neighborhood of the #21 slot, but they all seem to generally perform at a below-average level or worse in year 1. I’d be happy if he proves me wrong but the hype-train seems to have too much steam.
  15. 5[150]: Kinsley Keke [DL; Texas A&M]

    It certainly is nice having a Daniels-caliber guy as your #2, but I don’t think it is a need. More of a luxury. You could get by with a guy like Lowry. There were 19 other teams in the NFL last year that did not have 2 interior DL that graded higher than him. Not to mention that some of the other guys like Adams and Lancaster showed some flashes last year.
