  1. Random Packer News & Notes

    How about Bakhtiari ? His is 27 and his contract runs out after 2020, so the Packers will want to re-do him before his final year.
  2. Week 14 Atlanta @ Green Bay "I Believe"

    You had the commentators curse there, Packrule
  3. Week 14 Atlanta @ Green Bay "I Believe"

    Well done Bashaud !
  4. Week 14 Atlanta @ Green Bay "I Believe"

    Exactly. I want the players to play hard and the end result is what it is, no need to try and manipulate it.
  5. Week 14 Atlanta @ Green Bay "I Believe"

    You have flogged that horse enough. It's been dead on the ground for a while.
  6. 2019 Draft Discussion

  7. Advice/Question for Aaron Rodgers

    "The run game is your friend"
  8. If there was one phrase I would like to ban on forums like this, it is the '"Definition of insanity" one. Hugely over-used.
  9. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I won't say it was a great idea with hindsight, but at the time I can see the argument for keeping Randall Cobb, having just jettisoned Jordy Nelson. it gave some stability to the group.
  10. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Pretty much my view. No real reason not to keep Bulaga around in the last year of his contract, to provide stability, even if a fairly high draft pick is used at OT (which I suspect happens). If he stays relatively healthy he allows a rookie RT to develop, and if he gets injured you have a draft pick to fill in who is (hopefully) not too bad in his rookie year. It's similar to Randall Cobb, he wasn't let go early in 2018, and part of that was probably because the Packers could just let his contract run out at the end of this year. There is a high chance he won't be back in 2019, but never say never. With a couple of big contracts most likely off the books in 2019, you can afford to keep Bulaga for his last year (again, i don't expect him back after 2019).
  11. Who do you want as Head coach?

    I'm not sure this is a good subject for going with favourites. McCarthy was a pretty long shot back when he was hired. Filippo makes me nervous after hearing the Lefkoe and Simms broadcast on Bleacher report. I am still against getting McDaniels, despite him being the favourite choice on that same show. There's a bunch of OCs around (Lazor, Monken, LeFleur) to go with the ones already mentioned. There could be a half dozen college head coaches that are maybe good enough to make the jump, but that is a riskier hire. I could even live with a defensive guru, as long as he gets a bright mind in to handle the offense in a creative and evolving manner. It would suck if that meant seeing Pettine go though. My favourite at this time is probably Pete Carmichael, an imaginative guy, who has previous with Pettine and would (hopefully) retain him.
  12. 2019 Draft Discussion

    A guard is certainly needed, but I wouldn't get one in the first two rounds, so how high a priority does that make that position ? Safety is a slam-dunk top need, but I see that pass rusher is missing, something many would call the absolute top need. Also many would have OT as a priority, as you need to draft early to get starter-level players there (yeah there's Bakhtiari, but that is a real exception). I'm not averse to getting a WR, but NOT with a pick in the first two rounds in 2019, because I want to see what we have in MVS, ESB, Moore, Kumerow, before I waste a high pick there. I'd also be quite happy with going DL early, just because the talent there is once in a generation quality. One thing you don't hear said very much, is getting another CB early. Now I know that the perceived need is at safety, but it could well be that free safety is the best position for Josh Jackson, allowing (yet) another CB pick.
  13. Revisiting the Khalil Mack Trade

    I know Mack was an elite pass rusher, but it seems to be in the nature of many posters that once you get an extra pick, you want to spend it...... like yesterday. Most times, I'd rather gain the benefit of a cheap first contract on what could be a very expensive player later on, than get more of a sure thing, but on a huge contract from the get-go (and a vet is older, of course). It would be wrong to say I hated the idea of a Mack trade, but I did appreciate the impact of losing two first round picks further down the road, and I'm not sure how much weight others here attached to that.
  14. That was something I thought should have been done differently (as I said elsewhere on this site). McCarthy could easily have been canned Monday morning and then had time to say his goodbyes to the players, coaches, equipment guys etc, etc. I'm glad he got the chance to say his farewells (and it may well have been a Murphy/Gutekunst re-think, possibly stimulated by some fan reaction that prompted it). After 13 years, you should be allowed that, at least.
  15. 16th Coach of the GB Packers (let the search begin)

    Bleacher Report (Lefkoe and Simms) mentioned it in one of theirs. It may be elsewhere as well.
