  1. The "Kick the Tires" Thread (Other Teams Cuts)

    If your ask is for Minkah to cover a player like Hollywood Brown 1-1 you don't know how to use him. Miami has no other options right now, that roster is miserable.
  2. The "Kick the Tires" Thread (Other Teams Cuts)

    Minkah is worth a 1st to a DC who knows how to use him (I think Pettine would). He's not an Earl Thomas like safety or a Revis like outside CB. Think like Micah Hyde's role here, actually more like Charles Woodson's. He's not a guy you say "hey go cover their #1 guy." We had Shields/Harris/Tramon for that during Wood's time just like we have King/Alexander/Brown/Tramon for that now. He's a guy you put out there close to the box and say "go get the ball back for our offense." For a 1st round pick it's an "all in" type move, but one that doesn't immediately come with a high financial commitment like say Mack would've. In a passing league it would certainly give us a secondary to matchup with any offense in the league.
  3. Multiple Dolphins Players Request Trades After Loss

    Green Bay doesn't "need" him but we should still do this anyway. Jaire Alexander, Kevin King, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Josh Jackson, Tony Brown, Darnell Savage and Adrian Amos as your dime defense is something that won't be thrown at successfully. Then add in the pass rush that showed up last week. Man talking about enjoying watching your defense is a weird feeling.
  4. I was the only guy who liked Brian Burns. LITERALLY the only one.

    Pretty sure Alexander dislocated his elbow, don't think one just comes back after a week from that. Hughes may play, but he hasn't played football in a year, I'm not overly concerned, he'll be a good one in the long run but like any player he'll struggle on the way back.

    Everyone was pounding the table for Cook when the season ended. Who here wasn't?
  7. Random Packer News & Notes

    Unless you were pounding the table for that particular guy at the time of the pick, I don't think you get the right to use that hindsight a GM for not taking that player. I wanted Brian Burns at 12, if Burns turns out to be a stud, I have a point. If it's Sweat that becomes the star instead of Gary or Burns, what right do I have to call it a blunder when I made the same one? Kamara and JJSS we're brought up here every so often, they were nowhere near draft crushes, no one was screaming for them in that 2nd round. Why do we all of a sudden now just get to say "they should've been the pick?" That's not my style. Add in the fact that it's the 2nd and 3rd round of the draft and you could literally make this argument every single year, I think you're trying to force an apples to oranges comparison. Cook on the other hand, literally everyone on this forum when asked who was the most important guy to bring back after the ATL game was saying Cook. Everyone was upset when the news broke we weren't re-signing him. There was cautious optimism when we signed Bennett we had replaced or improved but it was quickly apparent we hadn't. Whether it was Ted or Ball who screwed it up, they definitely screwed us.

    No no @Norm the guy that busts has to be the one we bring in, not the guy we let go.
  9. Random Packer News & Notes

    So if we decide to let Kenny Clark go for a different DT and that guy busts and Clark goes on to make 4 Pro Bowls, that can't be considered a blunder right? Cause we got who we thought was the better guy. How can the draft picks you mention be blunders?? Jones we had rated higher than JJSS and Kamara, can't be a blunder, we got who we thought was better.
  10. Random Packer News & Notes

    Yes, that is the mistake. They screwed up negotiations with Cook and had to turn to Bennett (who many did not consider and upgrade). There's no possible way to say "this is the biggest blunder the organization has made in X years" without using hindsight. Literally impossible. Unless you are making it in the form of a prediction. The difference between using the draft and this situation is the draft is and will forever be a crapshoot for all 32 teams. Every single round of every single year unless you make the best pick of the round you could say "we took player A, wish we would've taken player B". Re-signing someone who was in your building is not a comparable situation. The offense thrived at the highest level since 2011 with Cook and they outsmarted themselves and lost him.
  11. Random Packer News & Notes

    Pre injury yes. Now he's a really tall guy running routes.
  12. Random Packer News & Notes

    Neither of us are arguing that. 31 other teams would rather have Alvin Kamara than their 3rd round pick. 31 teams would rather have taken David Bahktiari over their 4th rounder. That's the draft. It's a crapshoot. Re-signing a player who was a great fit for your organization shouldn't be a crapshoot. That's why it's one of the biggest blunders of the organization, it was obvious and they still screwed it up.
  13. Random Packer News & Notes

    Significantly. Graham is a classic height TE that lives in the world of 50/50 balls as they age. Like Gronk, Tony G, eventually Kelce. Cook is a move TE that will be out of the league when the speed goes, he wins with separation over size. Similar to Kittle, Finley, Davis. Rodgers clearly prefers a move TE.
  14. Random Packer News & Notes

    And thus this is the mistake @incognito_man and I are referring to is it not??
  15. 2019 Week 2 PACKERS vs vikings GAME DAY THREAD

    It's not so much throwing to the RBs (plug your ears @Outpost31). Rodgers hasn't thrown the hot well lately. He used to destroy the blitz, the ball would be in Jordy's or James Jones or GJ's hands 1-2 seconds after the snap and they'd have YAC room in a blitz depleted secondary. Now he double clutches and looks at the rush. Not sure if the last injury hurt his mental state under pressure? Seems counterproductive to take more hits rather than get the ball out, but ever since the Barr hit, that's where we've been. Before he'd extend plays when checkdowns were available, but he was lethal enough in other areas (like throwing the hot route) that it didn't matter. People forget that before the Barr hit he was 47/6 TD/INT and we were 12-2 after he said we were running the table. He was playing close to the 2011 level. That bastard really screwed us. I'd love nothing more than this to be the revival game for Rodgers.
