  1. Build Aaron Rodgers' Ideal Pass Catching Corps

    I'm looking forward to seeing how the combine shakes out the WR class...then reading the write ups. Rodgers likes guys with high football IQ. Find that receiver who loves football, who studies football and I think Rodgers will be a fan.

    I'd let free agency play out for him. There are other DLs out there that can also play the run while offering pass rush. He wouldn't be my first choice to add, but if the market dries up a little then I'd look. Guess what I'm saying is that I'd rather spend more on a DL who can do both. But he is a name to watch.

    No thank you. We invested in Jace to be that kind of tight end. Let's give him playing time versus spending more big money on a tight end.
  4. Everson Griffin Voids Final 3 Years of Deal

    You know? Sometimes you just remember players...when he came out, I think it was from USC, right? Went maybe early 4'th round? I thought the Vikes got a steal there. Then I saw him running down on kick off coverage teams and thought that there were corners on our roster who couldn't run like him.

    I see what you did there...

    From the write up, he sounds like he should look seriously at coaching when his playing days are done.
  7. Everson Griffin Voids Final 3 Years of Deal

    As a Packer fan, I have tons of respect for Griffin the player and the Vikings as an organization for standing by him. It's a great story all around. That guy played specials for a few years before he really got an opportunity and he's a very good EDGE player. Even though he's a thorn in our side, I hope he stays in Minnesota. He belongs there.
  8. Official 2020 WR Thread

    Instant respect for someone who calls himself out for liking a bust. We've all been there. Very few admit it. Me? I was all over Tim Williams on the EDGE. Whif!
  9. Kyler Fackrell

    If we are being fair to him, $3M/year is too low for him. He's serviceable. And with a 10.5 sack season under his belt, he should be getting double that from someone, if not more. I think most teams, even GB, would love to have that guy for $3M/season.
  10. Kyler Fackrell

    Look at his pressures in that 10.5 sack season. If his production were sustainable, we probably would not have signed two EDGE guys in free agency and drafted on with the 12'th overall pick. He's versatile, but not a pass rush force. Certainly has a spot in the NFL, though.
  11. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Gary had nothing to do with the teams success in reaching the NFCCG. Not relevant. I don't know if he was the right pick. I don't know if he was the wrong pick. Time will tell. I get that all first round picks are "gambles" to some extent, but I would have loved better production from the 12'th overall pick. And that's it. He's got plenty of time to prove it on the field.
  12. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Because you want better production from a #12 overall pick. That's really the rub. And I'm guilty of it. And even I can give him more time. But the early return was not good for a great many reasons. And...it's problematic because his collegiate production wasn't very good either, especially when considering he was the #1 recruit out of high school. Production has never matched his physical gifts. College or pros. I'm not bagging on him here, just pointing out why some may not be fans. There is justification there. And...the kid does need more time and opportunity.

    Well, this one was one where they sit you down, tell you that what you are doing isn't working and you need them. Then they get you to sign up to date their "database". You pay extra for their "help" with photos, profiles...etc. Then you are invited to their group "dates" where you can meet new people. The scam is that their "database" of clients isn't what they say. Shocking. The scam is that their professional photographer is a receptionist. The scam is that they cannot validate the number of outings they have, nor the members that show. The real scam is that they don't let you leave their room as they take your driver's license and credit card up front. As they said, it was to run your record to make sure you aren't a criminal. What they are really doing is seeing how much credit you have. And if you want to leave, they won't let you as they keep your driver's license and credit card. Many people were so fed up, they left without those things. The police found hundreds on site. My wife left her stuff, then called her lawyer. He got the $5,000 charge reversed and had her ID and credit card returned. She cancelled the card and immediately went to the media. It was crazy. She and I were actually on the news 3 times doing follow ups to their story. It was a crazy process.

    Never thought about it that....you may be onto something!
  15. TCMD 2020 GB Packer WAR ROOM

    OP would have to answer for that...trading for Hicks and paying Hargrave. As it stands, though, our offense takes a pretty clear step backwards. Maybe a rookie RB can replicate some of what Jones gave us. Maybe. But the WRs are still bad. TE is still meh. RB group is poor. So we better keep teams from scoring 21.
