  1. 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.
  2. Thanks to those of you who have posted tweets, links, and other bits from OTA today.
  3. 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-

  5. My first thought was, “Another Rodgers photo-bomb!”
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. 5[150]: Kinsley Keke [DL; Texas A&M]

    He’s Definitely already made the “All-Name Team:” Kingsley Kee-Kee! ( - : #
  9. 3[75]: Jace Sternberger [TE; Texas A&M]

    I read on one of his scouting reports that he played at about 240 for A&M, but bulked up to 251 for the combine.
  10. 2[44]: Elgton Jenkins [OC; Miss State]

    Joking aside, if the young man is a player, he’s well worth the premium pick in my book. It sounds like he’s got some versatility as well.

    FINALLY....a weapon for Rodgers . . . . . . NOT!!! () - : #
  12. Cadmus TMI Mock Draft

    Great job Cadmus, and thanks for all the hard work and research! Really a fun read.

    HaHaHa...Well there is that.

    I think Dean Lowry is fine as a role player for the Packers, and every squad needs like players like him. He’s also a young guy, only 24 years old, and it looks to my untrained (and fairly old) eyes like his game is still developing.

    As for Cole Madison, I really hope he’s done what ever healing he required, and has come back ready to play football. I wish him well regardless of how his “comeback” plays out.
