  1. 2020 NFL Draft Discussion

    I think it depends on which position you are looking at. The quality in this draft is in part decided by who declares, but my take is this. If you are looking for a good DT or a TE (and the Packers are probably looking at both) then it isn't a very good year and is definitely worse than in 2019. I think S might be a little below average, as well. If you are chasing QB, RB or ILB, it's a good year..........and if you are after a WR, it is an exceptional year. So, of the five positions most likely to be upgraded or added to by the Packers (DT, TE, WR, OT, ILB), two are projected as below average and two above average. The last position group (OT) might be just a little above average.

    Are you aware that the number of the beast is NOT 666, which is the common assumption. This is due to an altered translation where the translator didn't like the lack of perfect symmetry of the original number, which was 616, and altered it to the more aesthetic 666. Others copied the incorrect translation until 666 was perceived as the real number of the beast. So the reality is that you were already off the dreaded number by quite a long way.

    This is just to give people an idea, I admit it isn't recent. I thought that since we were discussing this very subject it would be useful, it wasn't meant as a criticism of anyone, just put out there for information.

  8. Random Packer News & Notes

    I feel like this board is sharing a trampoline with me this year, and when most others are down, I find myself up high. I felt real good about this team before the preseason games had started, due to the comparatively young and expensive veteran additions, the new(ish) GM, the new HC with a fresh attitude and new playbook, and many new coaches under him. I made a bet for the Packers to win the Lombardi at a time when many here were talking 8-8 and some even worse (I never thought the SB was a done deal or anything, but I felt they had a good chance and i liked the 16-1 odds). Now, when many are talking about firing Pettine, I still feel he is a good DC and will turn it around, maybe not this year, but by next year. I also think La Fleur will get better at playcalling. So where are my personal down times ? Maybe I'll get miserable when the Packers win the SB and everyone else is delirious, I don't know. Maybe I need to listen the 'The Smiths' more..........................."I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour, but heaven knows I'm miserable now".
  9. Fire Pettine

    @Outpost31 You saw the bet I offered, where I said Pettine would still be the Packers DC at the end of the 2021 season ? Bet is still on offer.......
  10. Veldheer claimed

    I'd give Light a chance against a defensive front that isn't so full of early first round nightmares (the 49ers), but yeah, they got Veldheer for a reason................... and if he is capable of playing at this time, he's in the mix.
  11. Veldheer claimed

    If that's true why is he backup tackle ?
  12. Veldheer claimed

    Just call him Warlord. That's what Veldheer means in English................ and Warlord is a cool nickname anyway.

    Are you trying to say big guys put more strain on the bone to muscle join (the cartilage) over time ? The post you were replying to (by @AlexGreen#20 ), was much clearer.

    That is actually possible.............. and the best justification I have heard for him accepting a deal for less than 3 years. My memory of the time when it was a matter of keeping Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb. Jordy went first in March 2018, to the Raiders (Cobb went a year later). I was surprised at how many people at the time wanted Jordy to be kept over Randall. I felt that at the time of that decision that Jordy had lost what had made him such a good receiver over the years (and I guess he thought so too as he was talking retirement during his first season with the Raiders). They had signed him to a 2 year deal, but let him go after one season. Cobb was (imo) underappreciated in Green Bay. He was a good, very aware receiver, that was injured just a bit too much for comfort.
  15. Eh, not really true. Ok time for a bet then. I say Pettine is still the DC right up until (at least) the end of 2021. From everything you have said, you expect a change there earlier. This bet will take time to play out, but it will be interesting to see which way it goes, and which of us can cash in their notional chips............
