  1. Packers new slot receiver is ....

    Did someone say Duke Johnson? I'll say Duke Johnson.
  2. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    #RemindMe in 10 Months
  3. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    He was on the field plenty in '17 with a garbage QB. He got Gase'd in 2018 as I explained above.
  4. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    Because I firmly believe that production won't occur without opportunity. To be clear, Parker wasn't the bad route runner last season that he was as a rookie. Let's look at the positives for Parker --> 1) The five closest WRs in terms of raw physical attributes are: Courtland Sutton, Tyrell Williams, Tim Patrick, Alshon Jeffery, and AJ Green. That's a very good group to belong to. 2) Adam Gase is an absolute clown that doesn't know how to utilize the talent he has (see: Kenyan Drake). 3) The QB play he's dealt with the last few years has been atrocious. Tannehill was 32nd in DVOA last season and Cutler was 25th in DVOA in 2017. 4) Despite the QB play--- When he's gotten adequate volume he has performed. Parker was quite impressive in 2017 considering the QB situation and the CB competition he faced. 670 yards in 13 games might not blow you away, but when he got the ball he performed. In fact, let's look at all of Parker's 6+ target games. GB's #2 WR, if consistent, should expect anywhere between 95 and 125 targets. 2015: 6+ target games (5) ---in those games---> 412 yards, 40 targets (8 per) ---extrapolate---> 82.4 yards per game, 1318 yards (full season) 2016: 6+ target games (8) ---in those games---> 561 yards, 66 targets (8.25 per) ---extrapolate---> 70.1 yards per game, 1122 yards (full season) 2017: 6+ target games (10) ---in those games---> 654 yards, 88 targets (8.8 per) ---extrapolate---> 65.4 yards per game, 1046 yards (full season) 2018: 6+ target games (3) ---in those games---> 220 yards, 27 targets (9.0 per) ---extrapolate---> 73.3 yards per game, 1173 yards (full season) Career: 6+ target games (26) ---in those games---> 1847 yards, 221 targets (8.5 per) ---extrapolate---> 71.0 yards per game, 1137 yards (full season) Every single year he's performed when he's had opportunity. In 2017, he performed well while Cutler smoked a pack of cigarettes on the Dolphin's bench between offensive series. 5) He can beat press and create separation at the catch point. Parker was bottom 20 in terms of WR cushion, but he was tied for 5th in terms of average separation at the catch point. Of the players ahead of him, 3 of the 4 WRs ran more than 50% of their routes out of the slot. 6) Of course, I can peddle the numbers all I want, but the primary reason I like Parker is that he simply passes the eye test. He got stuck in a bad situation this year from the beginning. He lined up vs. Xavien Howard every day in TC and ultimately struggled a bit vs. such a talented CB... At that juncture, I pointed out to my friend that Howard is a helluva CB and is extremely underrated (then he becomes a 2nd team All-Pro this season). Parker finally starts to stack a few good days together and then he broke his finger in TC and ultimately got lost in the Gase machine for the rest of the season. My dream off-season (that could be semi-realistic/ we could actually afford) for the offense would probably be: Sign DeVante Parker Trade a 6th RD pick for Duke Johnson (then move him to WR) Sign CJ Uzomah Sign Ty Nsekhe
  5. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    Honestly, just sign DeVante Parker when he gets cut. He shouldn't cost much and would have serious potential across from Adams. I also like Tyrell, but someone... Probably a team like the Cardinals will give him too much $$ me thinks.
  6. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    The Titans won't trade him, but hypothetically... a 4th RD pick?
  7. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    Can we just trade for Taywan Taylor? Mariota doesn't know what he's doing with him.
  8. All the good FAs wait to be signed until after the draft though.
  9. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Anyone peeked at Josh Oliver, the TE from SJSU. Could be an ideal target in the 3rd Round.
  10. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Yes, both Kendricks and Lewis are up and will be gone. I honestly don't care if they acquire 3 of them. I've liked Tonyan since last spring, but if they think they can bring in quality competition and it makes sense from a personnel perspective (in terms of allocating resources) then they should do it. I can see 1 FA, 1 earlyish DP and 1 late DP. Have them compete with Graham, Tonyan and Wolf.
  11. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I'm not responding to anyone, but I jut want to say.... The TE position will be so strong in 2019 when you combine the FA and Draft Classes that..... .... we better have AT LEAST 2 new TEs (Not counting the UDFAs) on the roster under the age of 26 before August. If we don't, I will be straight pissed.
  12. FF Devy League Discussion Thread

    Own 4 RBs because that's the position I needed to rebuild. Inherited Mike Weber, which isn't the worst player to get stuck with. Travis Etienne and Alexander Mattison were both of the 2nd Team RBs on SI's All-America Team. Mattison reportedly will be considered a Day 2 prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft if he declares early and runs well at the NFL Combine. Etienne and Mattison are both really good, but I still think Kylin Hill will be my best RB of the bunch. Alexander Mattison (2nd angle is the best)
  13. The Kyler Fackrell Aplogy Thread

    "He was a freshman my last year. You could tell then what he was gonna do.” Bobby Wagner (when asked about Kyler Fackrell).
  14. The Kyler Fackrell Aplogy Thread

    Fackrell has literally zero reason to sign a deal during this offseason. Double digit (or even high single digit) pass rushers are basically worth their weight in gold in today's NFL.
  15. You Are In Control. Who Replaces McCarthy?

    Graham Harrell or Brian Brohm. Both are currently OC's at the college level.
