  1. 2020 Offense Outlook

    Best trait about Begelton is his hunger. He doesn't have the measureables of the "other" WR's on the roster. But...I think just his presence is going to push the bottom of that depth chart. My guess is that he will be a practice squad guy.

    Jaguars? McCardell and Smith? But they were pre-2009. That's about my only guess. Maybe Edelman and Hogan for the Pats? Or Edelman and Ammendola?
  3. 2020 Green Bay Packers OL

    I agree, but only if you count Lewis as an OL.

    We all said that about Rodgers versus Favre, too. Love is in an ideal situation to sit and learn without being thrown to the wolves. And we Packer fans get to see Rodgers with an even bigger chip on his shoulder. Look. Anyone can spin the Love selection as a great pick, or a terrible pick. Time will tell. Just like it did with Rodgers.
  5. 2.62 - AJ Dillon [RB; Boston College]

    True. But....Jones is gonna kill in the fourth quarter if Dillon has been pounding on the defense. Telling yah, this selection to me sets Jones up for an even bigger year. Maybe fewer carries early, but more later when he's fresh and the defense is a little gassed. Like, I don't expect much more out of Dillon as a rookie runner than what J. Williams is gonna give us. Maybe a click better with vision. But with those two physical runners, Jones is gonna have even more explosive plays.

  7. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    I was pretty skeptical about the selection of Gary. I didn't feel like he loved football. I didn't feel like he was a hard worker. A year later, I can say that I was certainly wrong about the "not a hard worker" part. I'm still not sure if he loves football. But, to me, that needle is trending in the right direction. I'm now pretty excited about his future. I can't wait to see him get more reps in games. You gotta account for Z, P and Clark already. Should leave a lot of opportunity for Gary.

    K. Here's a post away from this topic.... Just gorgeous on Friday and Saturday. I was able to detail my boat! Vacuumed the interior, steamcleaned the carpet. Armor All'd the interior, buffed out every smudge on the interior glass. Took a solvent to the glass exterior, removed sludge, water stains...etc. Washed her down good. Got a good ceramic wax on her. Used another water mark remover, then waxed again. And...to make matters even better? I got to use my new gas pressure washer! God I love that thing. Boat is looking gorgeous. Took it out on Saturday, little crazy on the lake, but I wanted to get he carpet dry. All worked great. Even wiped it down afterwards. Too bad it will soon be full of walleye blood again. And...my COVID yard is going crazy. Like Hulk-green. Coming in thick, too.

    Nope. Not needed. But, those big guys with light feet are awfully hard to come by. It is what made them great in college and in the pros to some extent. Dillon just doesn't have those light feet. He can be very effective, as I think his vision is good, balance is very good and arm tackles aren't bringing him down. I agree as an "end of game" back, but I also think he's the "beginning of the game" back. If he can wear the D down just a little, it makes Jones every more effective as his speed will catch some guys off guard.
  11. 5th Down Depreciation Thread

    Just wondering if Rodgers has a "handshake" like Randy Orton (of WWE fame). If not familiar, google "Randy Orton hand".

    He can be EQ when his career stats exceed MVS. Till then, ESB. Or #19.
  13. 1.26 - Jordan Love [QB; Utah State]

    Seems to like like a couple of teams were actively trying to trade up for Love, which means he was held in a higher regard as a first round pick. Not sure if he was pushed down, or just a very good value for that draft slot. Either way? It doesn't matter. He is ours now, and we must develop him. And he has the ideal situation for that to happen. I've got no issues with GB taking this route. It isn't what I would have done, but I do understand it and I can get excited about the future. I'd much rather have Love where we got him and in our situation than be the Jets when they got Darnold. Guess I feel like if you want a young QB to succeed, let him ride pine and learn, then put him out there. That seems to be the better route than drafting one high and putting him out there day one to fend for himself.
  14. 2.62 - AJ Dillon [RB; Boston College]

    Powerful for sure. Willing contact player, too. No dancing. He's going to like being a rookie on a job share basis. Let him recover from last year. Give him a year in the strength and conditioning program and he could gain some quickness, just like Jones did.

    For sure. Our house gets dusted and vacuumed every day. Counters are santized every day. And that is pre-Covid. That is just her being her. As a husband, there are much worse things to deal with in a spouse! I'm much more laid back in regards to housework. I let things get messy before I clean them. She cleans before things get messy. But...I do vacuum every day and I am much more aware of cleaning up even more after I'm done cooking, just to make things easier for her. I can't clean up to her standard, but I do try and it makes things easier on her. But this pandemic has kind of heightened her cleanliness streak. And it does freak her out to go out into the public. But that is just her in regards to the virus. The numbers that I see on Telephonic Health utilization is pretty staggering. It is almost 50% virus stuff and 50% mental health. I have no doubt it is cabin fever. People want to get back to their "normal", though many also want to be safe. Tough spot to be in. We aren't people who hang out at bars, but we do like to eat out and my wife loves in-person shopping. So this is taking a toll on her. Luckily, though, we are still working, still getting paid and without driving or shopping, we have a ton more cash. Which means I've been buying more fishing baits and I think I've now sunk about $400 into our lawn, along with a ton of hours on the lawn. Covid things....
