  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.
  4. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    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".
  12. Packers 2020 WR Corps

    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....
  16. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    I really can't tell you much more, other than mental health care is being accessed a ton more now. I can speak for my wife. She certainly does have cabin fever. She's also very terrified of going out into the public right now. I'm not. I feel like I've been exposed and am fine. She, though, is very cautious. In fact, she had to go to work this morning to print off some stuff. Took her about 20 minutes of complaining about having to do it, then another 20 minutes to prepare to go outside. Mask, Gloves, Long sleeved shirt....and she even made a gameplan for what she wanted to do. My guess is that her personality type has a little to do with this. She's very much a clean freak and the thought of that bug must really get to her.
  17. 2.62 - AJ Dillon [RB; Boston College]

    I don't see the feet of Dayne or Lacy with Dillon. Those dude (Lacy/Dayne) were bigger up top, but light on those feet. Dillon looks bigger on the bottom half, heavier of foot. I do think he'll be good, but I just don't see the light feet with Dillon. And to be fair, I don't think many backs had feet like Dayne and Lacy, they were freaks in that regard.
  18. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    To be fair...suicides have not reached that mark. Not hardly. But...there is an enormous uptick in mental health issues right now. I work in the health insurance field....and folks are using TeleMedicine a whole lot more lately, and many of their concerns are mental health. Pretty easy to connect the dots from mental health struggles leading to suicide. So yah, mental health is an issue right now. Even in my household, my wife is struggling with working remotely and not being able to get out and do what she likes to do, such as shopping, walking and going to the gym. It is a struggle for her. And now...she can do more of it, but she's concerned about getting the virus, or worse, unknowingly giving it to someone else (because we have not been tested). Just a tough situation to be in. Guess I feel like Evers was in a "can't win" situation. Open the economy, get people back to work, get them paid. Or....keep people more isolated to keep infections down, which should mean fewer deaths. Either way, it is a tough position to be in.
  19. UDFA showcase showdown 2020 (MNF)

    To be fair, I get caught in that trap, too. Not being happy unless I'm unhappy about something related to the Packers. Especially when I was younger and pretty much a "rabid" fan. I've mellowed with age. A little. But I can totally see how someone can get obsessed with this poor run defense narrative. To me, though, there's smoke there, which means there could be fire, but we kept that fire at bay fine last year, with the exception of 3 games. Unfortunately, one of those games was the biggest of the season and a season ender. Guess I'll have to trust that Pettine gets it straightened out. Just like I had to trust that Gute knew what he was doing when he hired MLF. Just like I have to trust that they drafted well. Me? I've got bigger fish to fry. Literally. Having a fresh fish fry again tonight. Can't think of anything better than a good beer with a fresh fish fry.
  20. Packers 2020 WR Corps

    Yes. They are. And I can. 60.6. Just below MVS in terms of run blocking grade. Though, it is only on 36 snaps. Doesn't seem like I can go back to past years, either.
  21. Packers 2020 WR Corps

    Which could be why MLF talked about getting Kumerow more opportunities in the passing game. Which. Does. Not. Excite. Me.
  22. 3.94 - Josiah Deguara [TE; Cincinnati]

    That's what I recall as well. He became a real linchpin of that offense. Great blocker, very good receiver. I remember thinking they blew it by taking him in the 3rd round, but he sure did help complete that offense. Got this snipet from his Wiki page.... "Henderson was also valuable as pass catcher out of the backfield. As of 2008, he stands tenth all-time on the Packers' career receptions list with 320 (for 2,409 yards), and first among running backs. He also has 123 career rushing attempts for 426 yards"
  23. 3.94 - Josiah Deguara [TE; Cincinnati]

    Man, I remember enough of Henderson out of the backfield in that true west coast stuff. 95, 5 targets. 3 catches. 96, 33 targets. 27 catches. 97, 48 targets. 41 catches. 98, 49 targets. 37 catches. 99, 39 targets, 30 catches. 00, 45 targets, 35 catches. 01, 28 targets, 21 catches. 02, 32 targets, 26 catches. 03, 34 targets, 24 catches. 04, 40 targets, 34 catches. 05, 34 targets, 30 catches. 06, 18 targets, 12 catches. 405 targets, 320 catches, 2,409 yards. 14 TD's. For context....Vitale had 12 targets, 7 receptions last year. 97 yards. 0 TD.
  24. Packers 2020 WR Corps

    When Kumerow became more of a lead blocker, that was certainly by design. No issue with that on those kinds of plays. Outside of those few plays? Totally agree. Me? I'm just going to tip my hat to Kumerow for finding a way to get on the field and kind of carve out a little niche for himself.
  25. Packers 2020 WR Corps

    Could be, not disputing that at all. But Kumerow scored a 91.2 on PFF. Allison was 77.8. Lazard was 72.9. MVS was 61.4. Adams was 53.5 for scale. The only guy better (than Kumerow) was someone on Detroit who had a whopping 67 offensive snaps. For scale, Kumerow had 367 snaps.
