  1. 2020 Packers Defensive Backs

    I think Hollman's the guy to take a step forward. I doubt he knocks out Sullivan for reps, but he'll get some quality time in.
  2. I have a book called I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski and it says that PS Hoffman got his role by improvising the Brandt scene with the wall of awards during his audition. ...also, Tara Reid plays herself in that movie...
  3. 2020 Tight End Titillating Talk

    I have to agree with Gizmo, though "senseless" is certainly not the word I would use. I think you look at the tape and you have to wonder what the coaching staff is seeing in either of these guys in regards to blocking though personally, I think it's a consistency issue; when they're on, they're on when they're off, they're off. On the other hand, how much to Lewis have left in the tank? IMO Sternberger was drafted to be a move-TE first while he catches up to speed on blocking assignments and technique given when he showed at A&M under Jimbo Fisher. Likewise, Deguara gets to sit behind him and do the same. I still don't think Deguara was worth a 3rd, but I like what I see on tape of him. He actually played quite well against Ohio St. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3nAsUWVNws In the first 4 or 5 plays, you'll notice that he blocks pretty well though you'll notice on the second play, he gets stood up a little too quickly but secures the block nonetheless. He's also split out wide several times and is able to create separation. His release is pretty nice as well. Re-watching that tape makes me wonder if he's one of these guys who will be a better pro than college player. Overall, I mean...these are 3rd round picks, we're not expecting them to be Rob Gronkowski or George Kittle Day 1. I would also venture to guess that we'll draft yet another TE on Day 3 next year who will essentially be Lewis' replacement.
  4. Jamal Adams Requests Trade

    Just like Nick Perry... That's right. He wants to go to Dallas to get more than a million dollars and have two chicks at the same time...

    We've GOTTA be doing this...this is a move our organization would make.
  6. This is going to ruin Dabo Swinney's legacy. He was tone-deaf on the sweatshirt thing, but more importantly, he's been tone-deaf on the seriousness of the virus. These two things in tandem are going to be the end of him. It's a very sad story given that, to me at least, he is a beacon of hope and positivity. His infectious personality and approach has gotten him this far, but these last two months are going to be his Waterloo. Expect a really good 30 for 30 on this in 4-5 years. I don't see any of this ending well for him...
  7. 2020 Packers Linebackers

    I think he can be that and more.
  8. 2020 Packers Linebackers

    I'm itching to see Galeai in camp. If he's 20-25 lbs. heavier, he would've been drafted. The explosion is off-the-charts. Hope he gets moved around the front-7 a bit, maybe slips inside a la CMIII from 2014...
  9. NFL News & Notes

    Do what Olbermann does: refer to them as "The pro football team in Washington."
  10. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    You and others. They covered this on PTI earlier tonight IIRC. If this weren't the Bears, I'd tell you that DeFilippo is there to get Foles up and running so he can be the next Kyle Orton and pilot the Bears for the next couple of years while a high draft pick develops....but it's the Bears so...they have routinely demonstrated an incompetency at evaluating the QB position...
  11. Anyone a part of the NFC North Trash Talking page on Facebook? Some dope put up a post about Crosby missing those 4 FG's against Detroit in 2018... I'm going to channel my inner Colin Cowherd and say that we should blow up that page all at once...
  12. 2020 Offense Outlook

    I think we have to look to PFF to understand where Rick Wagner really is. He has a horrible year last year, but has measured comparably to Bulaga in each of the previous 3-4 seasons. In fact, throw out the worst PFF score for each of the two over the last 4-5 years and they're quite comparable...
  13. Jamal Adams Requests Trade

    I'm right with you on this one and would love to see that scenario you pitched. One problem... Adams wants to break the bank so what would we be giving up to acquire him, especially when we're not on his list of teams where he wants to go? Think I'll pass on this one...
  14. Random Packer News & Notes

    Actually, I was talking about the two picks afterwards followed by the IOL extravaganza that happened on Day 3. I don't think that was unintentional.
  15. 2020 Packers Defensive Backs

    oh? Was that part of a Packersnews.com article I didn't want to read because I didn't want to pay for a subscription? He's 6-3 so it makes sense he'd want to take on some bigger receivers and TE's.
  16. 2020 Offense Outlook

    I hope not...bad enough we reached on him, worse off if he doesn't pan out...
  17. 2020 Offense Outlook

    Deguara was basically drafted to be an H-back; a blocking type. Sure, he's only 6-2, 240 but that doesn't mean the majority of his snaps will be blocking out of the backfield or 2 TE sets with Lewis on the other side of the formation.
  18. Random Packer News & Notes

    Obviously, but if our run defense is still crap, which it will be this season, and we go through another draft and FA period in which it's not addressed....
  19. Random Packer News & Notes

    You have to wonder if MLF was brought in to quietly move on from Rodgers and transform the identity of the team in the process. We're already seeing that from this past year's draft and I strongly suspect we'll have similar frustrations during next year's draft...

    Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn!!!! Shots fired!
  21. 2020 Packers Defensive Backs

    “Will Redmond and Chandon both have played a lot of reps and gotten their own little niche ...." I think that line says all we need to know. You don't see coaches throwing players under the bus unlike Bill Parcels and his rocky relationship with Terry Glenn, but Jackson's really going to need a coming out party in camp. Realistically, we should just hope that he gets some good reps in and isn't a liability. I'm ok with him being CB4 at this point. It sounds like he's going to have more of an interior role so does he take snaps away from Greene?
  22. 2020 Packers Defensive Backs

    I'm wondering if they've told him he's insurance. No other team has reached out to him if I'm not mistaken.

  24. 2020 Packers Defensive Backs

    We seemed to play a lot of zone last year so you'd think he would've shown something by now. The more I look into the injury issue, the more I think it's a combination of two things. First, the injury itself given that it was a foot injury; and second, the fact that his schematic role is undefined compared to that of the other DB's. https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/11/07/mike-pettine-explains-why-cb-josh-jackson-wasnt-active-vs-chargers/ Think this article clears up a lot IMHO. He was also deactivated against the Seahawks for an illness FWIW. Still, I think we need to give further consideration to the foot injury.
  25. 2020 Packers Defensive Backs

    And that's their best Tackle going into the year too... I was listening to Pat Kirwin and Jim Miller on Sirius the other day and they think Chicago's got the worst OL depth in the league, maybe even a bottom-5 OL overall. They were high on Cody Whitehair, but nobody else. Why?
