  1. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Quite the ambitious project! Glad to see somebody so interested by history. When I get a chance I’ll get some more titles together for your consideration. Studied a bit of the Antebellum period, Civil War/Reconstruction, Span Am War, interwar period of ‘isolation’, and the Cold War in school so can get you some of the ones I read off our reading lists if you’d like.

    What are the major historical times? Either way commendable effort and great start. Just saying the major events had long periods of time consisting of smaller events that led to that major event.

    You can’t really learn about history by just reading about major figures. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_man_theory I recommend John Ashworth’s ‘Slavery, Capitalism, and Politics in the Antebellum Republic’ vol 1 and 2 for your Antebellum history. James McPherson and Eric Foner for your Civil War and reconstruction history.
  4. Aaron Rodgers’ career was not made by Aaron making a bunch of late draft picks look like studs. Early In Aaron’s career Ted Thompson surrounded him with as much talent as possible and it paid off. I am not saying we need to ignore the defense, but we certainly could use an infusion of talent on the offense.
  5. Week 11 GDT: GB @ Seattle TreeSloths

    Haven't you heard, Pettine schemes him to be the invisible man out there
  6. Nick Perry?

    I mean, you don't think Pettine is compensating for having two bums setting the edge?
  7. Week 10: Miami WontWins @ Green Bay GDT

    Ya we also Nick Collins at safety, rookie Sam Shields, and Charles Woodson at corner
  8. Graham really screwed us by not catching that ball
  9. When you talk about scoring defense you have to consider field position. Like in the Lions game earlier this year there was King's screw up on special teams and two fumbles by Rodgers leading to easy field position
  10. Trade Deadline Thread

    What's HaHa's value if he's not in a contract year
  11. Trade Deadline Thread

    Haha isn't worth more than a 4th but somehow Fowler is?
  12. Fire Ron Zook. His special teams have screwed us too many times this season , truly pathetic game by that unit. Seems like they screwed up every chance they had.
  13. A couple good punts by Heller and the wheels fall off for the packers
  14. Aaron Rodgers Depreciation Thread

    I think the main issues are that the interior line is meh and then play calling. We were running it down SF's throat and it opened up play action, guys were running wide open in the secondary and Rodgers was able to find them quickly. Then we got two turnovers and seemed to try to force the dagger too early, Rodgers threw six straight incompletions in a row. The run was all but abandoned the rest of the game yet we continued to run PA bootleg after PA bootleg and they were blown up almost every time. We need to run to slow down these pass rushes and to make the bootlegs and play action plays effective. Then you have drives getting murdered by penalties, whole drives erased by penalties on the O line and special teams, that's just not going to cut it if this team is to go anywhere. I can only hope MM is playing some long game with Aaron Jones, unleashing him for this rough stretch after the bye of games and only doing the bare minimum before. Maybe I give him too much credit though
  15. Aaron Rodgers Depreciation Thread

    Imo Rodgers being under pressure all the time is a bigger issue than Rodgers missing an open guy underneath here and there. Part of that is on the o line and part of it is on whoever is to blame for abandoning the running game, and part definitely on Mac for giving Jones only a portion of the carries
