    But was anyone on board?
  2. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    If you subscribe to The Athletic, Ben Fennel has an excellent Film study of the Raiders game. Toward the end, he shows video of Gary's improving pass rushing technique.
  3. Pack at Dallas Post Game: Four and One

    I sure am glad that fans aren't the GM. How many of you were ready to give up on Davante Adams his second year? - or thought that Hyde and Hayward were JAG's in 2015. If someone isn't ready their first or second year, they are wasted picks. Speaking of "wasted picks", that's the label a lot of fans had for Rogers his first 3 years.

  4. Pack at Dallas Post Game: Four and One

    I think that people are missing the point of this video. Yes Rashan got faked out by Ezekiel not blocking him and instead blowing by him on a route. However, Gary then flipped his hips and was catching on Elliot at the end of the play. At 280 pounds - that's freaking impressive in anyone's book.

  6. The "Kick the Tires" Thread (Other Teams Cuts)

    If we pick up 10 better athletes from other teams for our PS, how long is it going to take for them to get up to speed on our offense/defense. Especially with a short week it is better to have "plug & play" players with experience with our coaches and schemes to be prepared for the inevitable injuries. There will be some instability at the back end of the PS as the FO scours the thousands of available players for ones to bring in but right now we go with ones we know are knowledgeable and fit with what we do.
  7. Ah, Brady is like 800 years old - give or take. I think his chances are better there than most places. And if Brady goes down, Hoyer will probably be there for the long term. Most good doctors don't take Medicare.
  8. Two questions everyone is dancing around. First, what do you expect in a backup QB? Personally, I am more than satisfied if the backup won 50% of his games - with extraordinary assistance from every other part of the team - while AR would be out. Secondly, if you expect more than that, you are expecting, what amounts to, an average NFL starter. If that is what you are looking for, what are you willing to pay? Is the backup more critical to allocate resources, draft or money, than giving Rogers the tools to win at least another Superbowl? IMHO it is most important to have an above average OL with capable backups to keep him upright, at least good receivers and RB's - AR can make them better, and a top ten defense. This is where I expect the team to expend their resources. Face it, if Rogers goes down for an extended time, even an average starter will not get you to the Superbowl - and that's the objective after all, isn't it?
  9. Packers Training Camp 2019

    IMHO the reps that Rogers got in the combined practices with the Texans were as valuable as the limited number of reps he might get in the preseason - and in those reps he wore a red jersey and couldn't get hit. That's the best of both worlds.
  10. Green Bay @ Ravens "Still Gotta Shot Bowl"

    Why does Game Pass have only a listen option, no video?

    That might be an excellent sentiment in retrospect, but hindsight is always 20:20. We may not have known at the time that Madison was coming back, although Gute probably did but didn't know how much he could depend on him. We definitely didn't know that Jenkins would be available and be our second rounder. I feel that the draft is best approached if you have filled your most glaring needs and can therefore select the best player available that improves your roster, rather than reach for someone to fill a critical hole. Could we have gotten by without Turner, possibly, but I'm not sure we know yet how he is going to be used,
  12. 2019 Draft Discussion

    This is is why I am becoming more enamored with Hockenson as our 12th pick - and even possibly moving up for him. From everything that I have heard a TE that is not a part time player is critical in LaFleur's offense. This may be what is needed to make sure that the HC has everything that is needed to succeed. As far as Fant, listening to Dave Te Thomas's breakdown of TE's on his podcast "Scout's Honor" I believe that although he is an athletic freak, he may have tendencies toward being a Diva. As Hock began getting more and more playing time, Fant started to sulk and his playing suffered. He only had one catch in two of the last three games. Then he refused to play in Iowa's bowl game. Not sure if he loves football as much as a first round player should.
  13. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I think that there will be more interest - and action on quarterbacks early on than many anticipate, not that the quality of the draft class warrants. Those HC's/GM's without a viable franchise QB saw what happened last year with rookie QB's doing well and know that if they "Tank for Tua" that they probably will doing so for the next HC/GM. I think much of the lack of interest shown currently is a smoke screen and that once the QB's begin being taken there will be a lot of movement by teams to get "their guy".

    I'm also delighted that none of the rookies - even the first rounders will be expected to start because of holes in the roster. They need to EARN a starting job. Till injuries of course!
