  1. 2019 WR Corps

    Where has anybody in the thread stated he has BIG Numbers, or even that he’s a super talented player? Jake’s got great instincts for the game, and has learned to make the most of what he’s got to work with. Moore has more talent, but in my opinion Kumerow has more football acumen -->the ability to make good judgments and quick decisions, typically in a particular domain (in this case, how to play football) They both bring different assets to the squad, and I have no pony in this race. It’s all just pre-season banter as far as I’m concerned.

    Kumerow has a lot of assets as a player, runs tight routes-with a shifty first step, rangy, great hands and timing. But what I REALLY like is that he’s a baller!
  3. Random Packer News & Notes

    The Derrick Jones signing makes me wonder if Kevin King will be out (again) for a while with the bad hammie... Or maybe they just need a camp body to allow King to rehab...again.
  4. 2019 WR Corps

    Here’s Moore’s Scouting report from the NFL website: https://www.nfl.com/prospects/j'mon-moore?id=32194d4f-4f43-0639-5da2-4b37b85099d0 After reading this, I’d say the profile is very consistent in that he’ll likely need more time to develop into the player Green Bay thinks they drafted. I like Kumerow, and in a results driven game, he’s produced more than J’mon to date. But it’s a legitimate point to state he has a very small sample size when it comes to playing in regular season games. Reading the scouting report gave me pause when it comes to cutting J’mon Moore loose or risking trying to stash him on the PS. I think he’d likely be snatched in a hurry. We’re not talking about Dupre, Yancey, Abbrederis, Kevin Dorsey, or some other end of roster WRs. Moore legitimately could develop into a game changing player for the Packers. In any case, it will be fun to watch, and I wouldn’t be shocked if one of the WR prospects-be it Moore, Kumerow, Shepherd, maybe even Lazard develops some mysterious “injury” when it gets closer to cutdown time.
  5. Oren Burks

    Curtis Bolton was getting reps with the #1 defense today. Sounds like he’s the better pass defender with Summers likely the run stopper. Per Demovsky: "The Packers used undrafted rookie Curtis Bolton in Burks' place during practice and had seventh-round pick Ty Summers working with the second-string defense even though Summers led the team with 10 tackles against the Texans."

    Of the three choices, I’d say Kumerow, Shepherd, Davis in that order. Too bad Trevor Davis is already dinged; he’s valuable for his return abilities, and showed promise as gunner last year. He just can’t stay on the field.
  7. Top 5 Packers Age 25 or Younger?

    1. Kenny Clark is the only obvious choice, and he’s a MONSTER! Beyond that, looking at availability and production it shakes out like this: 2. Blake Martinez-for me he’s an easy choice 3. Aaron Jones 4. Geronimo Allison 5. Dean Lowry If Kenny King can stay on the field, I agree with those who put him in the top 5. I think he has all the ability to be a really good NFL corner. On the other hand, if he can’t stay healthy, he goes down as another TT dice roll who had a pre-existing history of injuries. Jaire Alexander had a solid rookie season, but for my ‘Top 5’ I need to see more than one season’s worth of play.
  8. How many wins for the 2019 Packers ?

    I see 8, maybe 9 wins this year, and I’ll be satisfied with that improvement from the past two dismal seasons. I think the young players and this new coaching staff will have some growing pains, and they may be a year or two year out from being back in the top tier of the NFC. I expect this to take place in baby steps. Green Bay needs to start by reclaiming the NFC North, where they went 1-4-1 last year. It won’t be easy getting back to the top because the Bears, with Nagy at the helm and that stout defense, have created a new culture. Detroit and minnesota are unknowns, but the Packers didn’t beat either one of them last year. Go .500 or better in division games, and it’s a realistic goal that represents progress on which to build.
  9. Man, that is most unfortunate for Coach LaFleur and the team. Per Demovsky’s story on ESPN: "LaFleur, 39, will have surgery on Sunday. A source said team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie advised LaFleur to have the tear repaired as soon as possible.” I guess we’ll get to find out how the “New Packers” handle adversity, and his coaching staff will have an opportunity to step up and develop their chops.
  10. Thanks to those of you who have posted tweets, links, and other bits from OTA today.
  11. Bart Starr was truly an extraordinary man ON and OFF the football field. He will be missed... One of my Favorite memories is what my brothers and I called “the Bart Starr Play.” 3rd and short yardage, play-action to Hornung, Taylor, or Pitts, then the Bomb to Dale, Dowler, or McGee! Devastating play that almost always worked due to Starr’s crafty fake, his pinpoint accuracy, and the opponent selling out to defend the Packer punishing run game. Absolutely Devastating! RIP Bart. -also posted in the Packer Forum-

  13. My first thought was, “Another Rodgers photo-bomb!”
  14. Mark Murphy must go!!

    Not necessarily AG. But it’s impossible to gauge the credibility of unnamed sources, present and/or past, when one doesn’t know if they work(ed) in the front office or at the Packer Pro Shop. In addition, it’s not a stretch to opine these naysayers are/were disgruntled and/or otherwise unhappy. Silverstein acknowledges some of his sources as being, “...agents and friends for some of those employees and people who do business with the Packers.” Honestly, we’re supposed to assume this is a reliable source of FACTS? Nobody knows at this point how the new coaching staff and (hopefully) improved roster will fare this season. But I expect the Packers to be improved. I’ve maintained all along this transitional process will take two, maybe three years to fully bear fruit. Meantime, with a healthy Aaron Rodgers, I expect Green Bay to be competitive and win their share of football games. I’m a realist, not some naive Pollyanna, and I remember well the post-Lombardi the dark times. Silverstein’s ramblings, sweeping generalizations, and unnamed second and third hand sources just aren’t compelling enough to convince me.
  15. Mark Murphy must go!!

    Silverstein seems to fancy himself a sort of “investigative journalist” these days. Mostly I gleaned from skimming his way-too-wordy-story, and during the 5-minute interview clip that accompanies the article, is vague generalities. There’s very little substance to support what he’s suggesting COULD happen. Here’s an excerpt from Silverstein’s LONG, rambling narrative that describes his “sources” for the story: “Speaking with current and former members of the organization, agents and friends for some of those employees and people who do business with the Packers, nearly 20 in total, there are concerns that the organization is headed down a faulty path.” Really? These are your sources? “...people who do business with the Packers” "...agents and friends of employees” “...current and former members of the organization” Nothing to see here folks...
