  1. Raiders sign Damarious Randall

    He's an odd guy. As a Packer fan...we just threw him out at corner and hoped for the best. Results were mixed. Often times he was burned and looked at others for the reason why. Other times, the ball just found him. He's one of those guys that the ball just seems to find. One would hope that he matures as he gets older and no doubt, playing safety is what he does best. I think it is a solid signing. But he's also a guy that I feel is most likely a stopgap kind of kid, one that you try to upgrade from.

    I just don't like it. Jones has gotten better over time. And he's a special kind of back. I'm inclined to keep him this year, then tag and try to trade next year. Even if it means less value. We have just so few impact guys on offense that I hate getting rid of one. As much as RB's are "plug and play", I guess I don't feel like there won't be a pretty significant drop off.
  3. Greatest of all-time team

    I can't argue against any selections. I"ll go a little different route. Give me the 85 Bears defense and the 88 49ers offense. Just a way of thinking that a unit will perform better than a collection of All-Stars with little experience playing together.
  4. Packers sign Devin Funchess

    Well, there it is!

    Man, that is a dang good boss to have! I'm in sales and deemed "essential", so I'm working from home. And...I"m thrilled to learn that I got two deals done with a possibility of another one coming in shortly. Really got me excited. I'm waiting for the ink to dry before I tell my owner, he's going to be thrilled. Any new business right now is a great thing.

    I don't think so. Just word puzzles. And their daily puzzles give you coins that unlock pictures throughout the month.

    It's a nice topic/thread, Golfman. Thanks for starting it. I watched a little film on Love...really disliked the throwing motion. But he sure can move and has a nice arm. I'm not overly hung up on the arm motion, because Rodgers had a weird throwing motion at first, too, didn't take too long for him to change it.

    Wordscapes is a pretty fun app to challenge the brain, too. I used to do the daily puzzle and about 3 puzzles a day. Now I'm up to about 20 puzzles a day just to try to keep my mind occupied.

    I feel for yah, man. It's been a tough week for me, too. I honestly feel like the weather we've had for the past 2 weeks really didn't help. No sun. There was a little sun yesterday. I took a fishing pole downtown and made some casts. Plenty of room to distance. Plenty of room to cast, as well as feel the sun and wind. That helped me a ton. Today the sun is out, it's warmer and I'm going for a long walk. Hope you find time to do the same, enjoy some sunshine while it is here and then see how you feel. I've noticed a lot of folks around me are hanging out on patios/porches...etc. Some are sipping cocktails, others are just taking in the nice weather.

    The maybe it is 4? Wright, Tolzien and the other guy I remembered taken a few years after Wright. Keyes, I think. Was there an older one?
  11. Jordan Love

    K. Maybe one never played but was just drafted.
  12. Jordan Love

    You missed a really tough one and a really easy one.
  13. Jordan Love

    You old enough to remember the three that also played for GB?
  14. Jordan Love

    You weren't able to watch Packers game in the late 70's, early 80's, were you? I think you are a little younger in age. Many of us lived through terrible quarterbacks and terrible QB decisions. I was just a kid, but man, even I knew what a bad quarterback looked like at a very young age. Choose life over a terrible quarterback. Because soon you will live long enough to get rewarded with Favre/Rodgers in succession!
  15. 2020 Off-season Discussion Thread

    You are losing me here. You saying he's on the hot seat? Or are you saying if he went "all in" this year, throws caution to the wind and fails, then he's out of a job? I'm really not following what you are saying and the statement about him keeping his job is confusing to me. My bad...saw your response to this already.
  16. Essential Employee mock

    I can't wait to see how this plays out! Thinking his left nut is pretty darned safe.
  17. Packers sign Devin Funchess

    I have a tough time with Sanders if GB wanted him on a 3 year deal. Only way I see that working out is to spread out the signing bonus. I think Sanders is a better player right now and would help us more than Funchess. But given the contracts signed? Huge nod to Funchess. But if things were more equal in contract? Sanders.
  18. Essential Employee mock

    I like it to. First pick is a little bit of a headscratcher, but the guy can play and I believe he is physical. I think he's versatile enough to play the EDGE in some sets and stout enough to flip inside and that is probably where he would make his money. I think he (Espinosa) was asked about this and he said he hasn't done it much, but he is willing to do it. I don't love the fit from his measurables, but I do like the player very much. And the later rounds are money.

  20. 2020 Off-season Discussion Thread

    Dude. Chill out. You are really doubling down on a lot of silly things lately. I don't really care what he is listed at. PPF rates him as a safety. Cool that GB lists him as a corner. I see that. I also see that Lucas Patrick is a guard and a center. Lancaster is a DE. Adams is a DE and NT. I list those others (and Sullivan is not listed as a safety) because there is fluidity. As far as PFF goes, I find it interesting that they deem his reps to be from a safety position, hence he is rated against others who also play safety. I wonder how his score would be if scored as a corner. If you want to continue be snarky, feel free.

    From Sullivan's draft write up...nfl.com Sullivan's success in four years on the field and in the classroom at Georgia State earned him one of the prestigious finalist spots for the William V. Campbell Trophy, otherwise known as the academic Heisman Trophy. The journalism major with a 3.84-grade point average is also the young program's record-holder in interceptions (seven) and pass breakups (18). He was a third-team All-Sun Belt pick in 2017 as a 12-game starter, helping his team achieve the team's first bowl win by posting 46 tackles, intercepting one pass and breaking up five others. Sullivan was an honorable mention all-conference pick as a sophomore (50 tackles, 4.5 for loss, two interceptions, eight pass breakups in 13 starts) and junior (43 stops, three interceptions, four pass breakups in 12 starts). As a true freshman, Sullivan started eight of 12 games played, stopping 43 ballcarriers, intercepting a pass and breaking up another. From Zuerlein.... Strengths Flashed a disruptive jab from press on a couple of reps against Penn State this season Recognizes route combinations from off-coverage and is able to see and respond to routes developing in his area Shows decent short-area recovery quickness with his feet Shows off quality hand-eye coordination when a play is there to be made Has quick hands to snare interception opportunities that get on top of him Intelligent with ability to take directions from the meeting room out to the field Weaknesses The longer the runway the more he will fall behind when chasing May not have the long speed to handle NFL burners Tightness in hips offers resistance when asked to open suddenly and sprint Loses valuable ground when changing directions Takes forever to gear down and respond to comeback routes once he gets into sprint mode Runs himself out of potential plays on the ball with excessively deep drops Needs to do a better job of staying in phase through the route Grab-and-drag tackler who goes for rides against big ball carriers

    Pro Football Focus tags him as a Safety, nuff said. Got a very nice score from them, too.
  23. Packers sign Devin Funchess

    Can we get him an exception to take number 71? That way if Rodgers sees a blur, or has a dyslexic moment, maybe Fun will see a few more balls come his way.
  24. Vegas' Packers MOCK the Draft!

    Just trying to have a little fun. It was fun to put together. But...I'm not sure if the RAS score for the Statue of Liberty is going to be within Gute's threshholds. And if Rodgers only looks for Adams with that stacked WR corp, then it is time to get Uncle Rico in there.
