  1. 2020 Off-season Discussion Thread

    Nope. That's my thing. I believe he's referring to a rule in the current CBA that any contracts signed before the new CBA is reached can't have a raise of more than 30% the following year to avoid backloading. I think that's a thing.

    The Kobe focus on the all star game just makes me feel dirty. 🤷 The 4th quarter scoring change and MVP award name but the numbers on the jerseys seemed like overkill especially. Yuck all around for me.
  3. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    I'm still in the same boat I was when we drafted him. He's still young and physically gifted and works hard and the coaches love his effort. Not a huge fan but If everything works he'll be a stud. If not you at least invested in the right TYPE of guy.

    Pretty sure the entire point of "ok boomer" is to point out oblivious older white people who are so self absorbed that they think "I'm good." is the be all end all. 🤷

    I'm sure all you tall people who need your legroom make sure to stand in the back at concerts so as not to block anyone's view though, right? 🙄

    While speaking of airplanes.... The whole "white people" clapping when a plane lands stereotype/meme/joke thing. I've seen this mentioned and joked about repeatedly but in hundreds of flights I've never seen it happen. Has anybody ever actually experienced that?

    That guys totally being a dbag. Sucks to be stuck in his situation but sometime life puts you in situations that suck and that's not how you handle it. The one airplane etiquette "rule" I am 100% a staunch supporter of and firm believer in is that the person in the middle seat is the rightful "owner" of both armrests next to them. If you're in the window seat you get the window and the window armrest. If you're in the aisle seat you get the aisle and the aisle armrest. If your in the middle seat you get both armrests. It's the only logical an fair assumption. In my experience that's only understood about 75% of the time.
  8. Packers Regression

    I saw an interesting fact yesterday and didn't know where I would post it but knew Outpost would have mentioned something recently which would make it relevant and was not disappointed... The QB with the highest cap hit in the league has not won a playoff game in the last decade. In eight of the ten years their team has missed the playoffs entirely. Just a little fuel for the fire. 🔥 🔥 🔥

    So I've probably posted something similar each winter for the last 8 years but I'll never not think Colorado weather is crazy. It was 74° yesterday when I walked into work. It was 7° today when I walked into work.
  10. Packers Part way with WR coach Alvis Whitted

    Gotta think our punt return unit until Ervin came along is what really dragged that ranking down. IIRC prior to Ervin our punt returners had a combined -8 yards for the year.

    Papa Murphy pizzas keep pretty darn well in the freezer. They say you can keep them for 3 weeks. I don't recommend more than two weeks though. Ask them to double wrap them because you're going to freeze them and they always happily did so for me.
  12. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    I'd say that crust is king when it comes to frozen pizza and it's 100% personal preference. Find the one you like best and then they're pretty easy to doctor up with toppings and seasonings to your liking.
  13. Packers hiring former MN Jerry Gray

    The DC in Carolina was Simmons' DC during his college years at Arizona St. It makes a lot of sense for him to go somewhere he has a 20+ odd year connection with as opposed to his situation in GB.
  14. Random Packer News & Notes

    Namath and Swann are perfect examples in my opinion of it being the Hall of Fame as opposed to the Hall of Great Players. If I were to ask a random person on the street if they knew who Namath or Swann were I'd expect an exponentially larger amount of them to recognize those names compared to Butler. The HOF is basically just a PR stunt to remind people about how awesome the game of football is. People who were merely good but move the needle in the perception of the general public are always going to have an advantage getting in over people who were just truly great football players. I don't think that's necessarily "right" but I understand why it is that way.
  15. I think we're on the same page. I think he can be over as a face as long as you don't ask him to be the "good guy". I think he needs to have an adversary that stacks the cards against him and he does whatever it takes to get past them. He can be really good as a slightly good guy. I just don't see him as being a vanilla face (which is where I see him heading). Keep him in the middle facing adversity and he'll shine. Leaning towards baby face is his wheel house.
