  1. 2018 Expansion Draft - Packers

    I'm wondering if, in the long run, an expansion team is better with no poison-chalice 'gifts' from other teams. Maybe they are better served taking away many of other teams practice squad players, and putting them on their final 53. A few veterans would help, but too many can mess with your cap structure.

    Those are some very impressive statistics, Shanedorf.
  3. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    All this is true and indicates how the Packers (and Pettine and MM particularly) viewed Moss............THEN. We don't really know what they think now. For me, if they thought he was good enough to keep then, and he is released next year, it validates my contention that they considered his performances in front of the camera and whatever lay behind that, was serious enough to change their mind and release him. If it looks like faeces, feels like faeces and smells like faeces...............do you really need to taste it too ? If McCarthy knocked on your door personally, told you he really was very unhappy with Moss and intended to release him, would you call McCarthy overwrought and delusional ?

    It is pretty obvious that those on the two sides of this argument will never agree, so here is a solution. If Moss is still with the team on draft day 2019, I'll concede his media attitude wasn't important (to the Packers). If he is gone by that date, it suggests it WAS considered important, and you and PackerRaymond (among others) were wrong.

    If you are smart you can learn a great deal from very small clues. It takes some projection, and it is definitely helped by experience, but it's true nonetheless. You could hear almost complete silence in a forest and think nothing is going on. Someone in the same situation with more experience might realise he/she is being stalked. Interpretation through experience.

    @HighCalebR You aimed your gun at the bullseye of Patriotplayer90, but you missed the entire target. His point was about attitude, not promotion. If Pettine and other coaches have a good attitude, they can build on what they already know and improve how they pass their knowledge/philosophy on to the team. A person can improve how he does his job without necessarily wanting a higher job spot. It is very possible Pettine and Philbin are in that category, and (imo) it is a mature person who realises (after having tried a higher spot) that the job one step down from there, is the level they work best at and enjoy the most.
  9. Aaron Rodgers and new contract

    You seem locked into the idea that tying a contract to the cap must be bad. In truth, it would all depend on what percentage of the cap the contract was. It could be a good deal. It is all about the numbers and projected cap increase. In your second paragraph, I get the idea of waiting to get another year at the lower cost, though you always have to consider the possibility of a player holding out for free agency the closer they get to the end of the current contract. As for asking more than he is worth, it is his agents job to get the best contract he can for AR, that's the American way, whatever the contract size.

    I said "As McCarthy has publicly stated, the most important skill a coach can have, is being a good teacher. To be a good teacher you must be a good communicator, end of story." You said - "Assuming a coach treats his players the same as media members is one of the worst assumptions I've ever seen. " Really - one of THE WORST ASSUMPTIONS I'VE EVER SEEN'. I take it you haven't seen much then, or anything at all. Or are you over-egging the pudding by putting a battery farms whole supply into one. What I gave you was a simple requirement of a good teacher, and a suggestion that in my opinion his attitude would result in him being cut free either in a month, or (because of the difficulties of getting a new coach up to speed at this critical time) at least before next season.. YOU made the leap that suggested he treated his players the same. I said his attitude is unacceptable - you think it's fine. We will agree to differ on this one.
  11. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    When was the last time you saw such awful press conferences, and in this case, two of them. You might be comfortable with having him around the team, I am not. As McCarthy has publicly stated, the most important skill a coach can have, is being a good teacher. To be a good teacher you must be a good communicator, end of story. I maintain (as I did before), that Moss is either gone in a month, or if the Packers soldier on with him (because it is much harder to replace a coach at this time with a competent one - and a new one wouldn't know the system), then I don't see him lasting after the season has ended and the next coach carousel opens.
  12. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    With his second awful press conference, Moss almost seems like he's trying to get fired. He was asked if his attitude and monosyllabic replies had anything to do with him being annoyed at the press (and what they - the press - could do to fix it), and after several seconds of staring into space He replied 'I've got nothing for you'. He is looking like he is toxic within the organisation, at this time.

    He is dissipating residual negative energies, generated by Capers. This house...................is clean.
  14. Wide Receiver Outlook

    Perhaps my example wasn't the best choice, but the point behind it remains. WRs often take a long time to understand the many nuances of NFL football and the multiple decisions that must be made as the route is run. If the receiver has traits you can work with and is showing progress, that third year is often the breakout one. If they still can't cut it by the first few games of their third season though, they probably never will. To me, that is the cutoff for receivers with 'potential'.
  15. Wide Receiver Outlook

    You could have said the same thing of Adams in his second year.........and where would the Packers be now, if they had dumped him (his second year was 13GP, 50 receptions 483 yds, 9.7 av). If a WR still cannot make a mark in their 3rd year though..........it's almost always time to cut bait.
