  1. Random Packer News & Notes

    Those were dark times after Lombardi left. The Packers literally became the laughing stock of the NFL for years until Ron Wolf came along in the early 90s. He brought in Holmgren, Reggie, and Favre along with several other key additions like: Keith Jackson, Santana Dotson and Frank Winters...and the rest, as they say, is history!

    Just what is the deal on Boston? I don’t know much about him other than what I see on the NFL web site. On paper he looks like a decent player, and he’s started 44 games. But this season will be the 4th team he’s played for in six years, which to me looks like a red flag. Help me out...
  3. Random Packer News & Notes

    Here’s a report from Tom Silverstein, via Acme Packing, that states Green Bay is much tighter on their salary cap than they’d realized: https://www.acmepackingcompany.com/free-agency-2019-green-bay-packers/2019/3/18/18271848/packers-have-less-than-5-million-in-salary-cap-space-after-errors-identified-per-report After reading the article, and the Tweets from Silverstein, I seriously wonder about the reliability of Silverstein’s “multiple sources.” An oversight like this would be completely out of character for the Packer finance people...ie Russell Ball and company. I try to cross reference stuff like this to see if other reliable media sources are reporting the same news. And I have yet to verify if the Silverstein/Evan Western (APC) story has any legs. If, in fact, this proves to be BS, I’ll gladly delete this post. But meantime I thought people would be interested. Film at 11...

    Maybe late, but here you go. On Curtis Riley: http://www.nfl.com/player/curtisriley/2553822/profile I noticed he went to Fresno State, and probably played with Davante Adams. If you give him a call I’ll bet he can give a scouting report...( - ; #

    Word! A fitting farewell for the mountain of a warrior from the University of Oregon.

    It will be interesting to find out how much they’re going to pay him. Film at 11...

    More on Jordy from a Schefter tweet: 'Former Packers’ WR Jordy Nelson is scheduled to visit the Seahawks on Tuesday, per source. They were interested in Nelson last year; GM John Schneider loves Nelson. Other interested teams at this point include: Patriots, Titans, Chiefs, Raiders.' Davis and Gruden are being like little kids with a toy they’d discarded. Somebody else wants Jordy and now they want him back...
  8. If Hockenson is on the board at 30 I snag him to go with Wilkins. That would be a Terrific two 1st rounders!
  9. I’ll go with D-line and pick Wilkins, with White being my second choice. Both these cats provide a hedge against the impending free agency of Martinez and Daniels next year. But I like Dillard as well.
  10. Green Bay Big Board - #1

    I threw in with Q because with the FA signings of Smith and Smith, I think at this point the Packers have mitigated the urgency to add an Edge player, even though I expect them to draft at least one more prospect with a relatively premium draft pick. Also, based upon what I can find about the personal attributes of each player, Williams sounds like a closer fit (than Bosa) for the type of player the Packers favor...Packer People, if you will. I particularly like that he ignored his agent’s advice after running a first time 40 of 4.87. He wasn’t quite satisfied with that so he ran a second 40 that clocked at 4.83. We’re talking a 300 pound man! Ya gotta love that kind of drive.

    ‘Gute’ isn't his real name???

    Man, its sure speaks volumes about the previous Packer roster that their ”Big 4, or maybe Big 3.5 of: Clay Matthews Randall Cobb Nick Perry .5 Jake Ryan Are all sitting out in free agent nethers, waiting to be signed. And let’s not forget how nobody was clamoring to bring in McCarthy in any capacity. For better or worse, thank goodness the housecleaning took place!
  13. 2019 Free Agent Discussion

    I added Cobb and Perry, to go along with Jake Ryan and Clay Matthews.
  14. Ha,Ha,Ha... ...Bakhtiari remains, but I think most of the quirkiness left with Sitton and TJ. That written, I couldn’t care less about his fashionista inclinations if he comes in and starts knocking defenders on their a$$!

    Agreed Ghost. But I sure hope the Packers don’t offer him a pile of money. Carolina had a 3 year for $24 million on the table, until he failed his physical. He looks like a solid player and he’s still young (27), so he may be looking for that big payday. After all, he was a starter for the ‘Skins prior to hitting the free agent market.
