  1. I went with Mo actually. He's on a prove-it deal and Mike Daniels is going to command a ton of attention. Can Mo use that to his advantage? If so, there's no reason why he shouldn't have at least 7 or 8 sacks this year barring injury.
  2. NFL News & Notes

    I never said Diggs didn't have any talent. Forget that he was hurt as well, Thielen was challenging him for the WR1 spot before Diggs was hurt as he made a strong push. I'll give you that Thielen possibly became the WR1 due to Diggs getting hurt and then holding onto it, but despite injuries, Thielen's been the more consistent target and I've seen them line Thielen up in the slot and outside as well.
  3. That tragedy occurred well after we released him.
  4. Rodgers also liked Mitchell Henry. How'd that work out? Sometimes compliments work as smokescreens.
  5. That's a foregone conclusion. How he's been on the team the last two years is a mystery to me. He was an older player when we drafted him with a flyer pick and he showed very quickly that his ball skills are horrible. To be fair, he was supposed to develop into a back-up CB at best and be a ST's player, but after the last three drafts, he's become quite expendable.

    First of all, Thielen's actually had 2 great seasons, not just one. Secondly, you completely missed the point: Diggs is not a WR1 on his own team. Thielen is the WR1.

    Stefon Diggs was supplanted as the WR1 on that team by an UDFA that played FCS/D-II? ball. That alone puts him under Adams. Plus, Adams is much more physical which helps him win 1-on-1's. I've got him slotted as my #6 WR with Allen and Evans directly behind him.

    I miss Val Venis. Now THAT was entertainment...
  9. First of all, Brice is going to get the other Safety position. After reading the discussion about Rollins, I'm convinced that we're in a wait-n-see period with some of these DB's the way we'll do so with our OLB's. There's no disputing that Dom's defense routinely put our players in a position to fail and the only reason he lasted as long as he did is because our cheerleader media didn't put the screws to him, nor did anyone in the organization hold him accountable because they were blinded by his years of experience. Only after players leave and slam the organization was there a change and the lack of change is what tarnished the latter half of TT's tenure as GM. Perhaps Rollins could excel in Pettine's defense as he doesn't have to overthink everything he's going to do in the framework of a defense.
  10. Agreed. I'm hoping we don't have to burn another higher pick on a Tackle next year. I think Spriggs has a breakout year this year and Murphy takes a step forward as well. If either of those two slip up in camp, Byron Bell could possibly leapfrog them.
  11. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    As Stephen A. Smith would say: LAAAY OFFFF THE DAMN WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!!!!
  12. ...but we're an offense who uses the FB, especially on the great Packers sweep. I'm kinda curious to see what Joel Bouagnon can do in camp. He was signed as a FB, but he's been moved to RB. Should be an interesting prospect to watch.
  13. Thanks for putting in the effort to create a quality thread. Thorough and no-stone-left-unturned. Love it. I agree with a lot you have to say here as well; especially in regards to how Hundley exits. Do disagree with a few things here so I'll post my current final 53 and note those differences as they pop up. QB: Rodgers, Kizer(2) - Hundley gets traded to Seattle for a 6th. RB: Williams, Jones, Ripkowski(5) WR: Adams, Cobb, ESB, Moore, MVS, Allison(11) - I think Clark and Kumerow go to the PS and I can't see us keeping 7 WR's. I think Davis gets traded to the 49ers for a 6th. TE: Graham, Lewis, Kendricks(14) - I don't see how Kendricks doesn't make this team. He's cheap and we can let him walk for whichever TE we draft in next year's draft. OL: Bakh, Taylor, Linsley, McCray, Murphy, Spriggs, Patrick, Bell, Pankey(23) - I don't think Madison makes the roster right off the bat. He and Amichia go to the PS along with either of the two Centers. IIRC, Dillon Day was more than just a Center so I could see him sneaking onto the final 53 if he can prove to be a valuable swing man inside. Our coaching staff appears to be going for versatile players along the right side of the line as the left side is set for a spell. ATH: ATH stands for Around The Horn here and that's what Monty will be. He'll probably be officially listed as a RB, but he'll be used all over the place.(24) DL: Daniels, Wilkerson, Clark, Lowry, Adams, Looney(30) - Lancaster and Sheehy find their way to the PS. OLB: CMIII, Perry, Biegel, Fackrell, Gilbert, Donnerson(36) - Not sure Odom could make it to the PS, but he will need a very strong showing in TC but I think Donnerson outplays him. ILB: Ryan, Martinez, Burks(39) - This group is set. Might keep one of the others on the PS. CB: House, King, Williams, Alexander, Jackson, Pipkins(45) - I don't see Waters making this roster and we've seen what we've needed to see from the rest of them. I don't think we carry 7 CB's. S: HaHa, Evans, Brice, Jones, Rollins(50) - I too think Rollins makes it as a Safety. He's always been better and more cerebral in zone. I don't see how Whitehead or Greene could make this roster with Rollins playing ST. ST: Scott, Crosby, Triner(53)
  14. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    LOL. I love how this whole situation is getting blown out of proportion. My only disappointment is that he didn't go Jim Mora Sr.
