  1. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    Fackrell is arguably underperforming his third round pick status. CMIII is inarguably underperforming his $60 million dollar contract. There's far more complaining about the former rather than the later. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
  2. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    FWIW.... In the last 2 seasons Fackrell has recorded a sack every 121 snaps. In the last 3 seasons CMIII has recorded a sack every 119 snaps. Fackrell has made 1.5 million. CMIII has made 41.5 million.
  3. Aaron Rodgers and new contract

    Situational awareness. I dont really have a horse in this race but there's a pretty big difference between those situations and when he got hurt extending plays. A 4th down with the playoffs on the line and 10 seconds left in a tied playoff game are times you extend the play at any risk. No one is going to argue that. A random second down play and a third down play in field goal range in September not so much. There's 1000+ snaps in a year. You don't have to put yourself at risk to win every one. That seems to be a reasonable stance to me.
  4. NFL News & Notes

    I think the Tramon signing was a good sign for JJ. What Tramon did well last year is what JJ should be best at. To me that (hopefully) means they have a role designed in the new defense for that type of player.
  5. Random Packer News & Notes

    If someone shows up to preseason with goggles and a jerhi curl they better GD well make the team!!!
  6. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    So I went back to Wisconsin to visit family and we rented a house in the Dells. Haven't been there in almost 10 years. Holy Cow! Mount Olympus bought the whole dang town. Looks like they own half the hotels up there now.
  7. Im obviously biased..... FWIW... two of the three toughest games in most people's eyes @Rams and @Vikings (@Patriots the other) come after a bye week and a Thursday night game I think. Usually those games favor the team with the extra rest. I feel like the Packers are an 11 or 12 win team if they (mostly AR12) stay healthy. I'm also very much of the belief that teams are ~ +/- 3 games based on luck because football is a game of inches and bounces. They were 12-2 in the last 14 games with Rodgers healthy I think. Only losing to the Falcons on the road. 14-2 isn't likely but absolutely possible. A healthy GB squad is very capable of being the #1 seed in the NFC.
  8. Aaron Jones got popped for pot by the po-po. Pled no contest in February.
  9. Wide Receiver Outlook

    Clark is going to have to improve by leaps and bounds if he's going to make the team IMO. I know a lot of people liked him at the end of the year but I have no idea why. He was flat out terrible.

    It's been way too long since I've been to Lambeau so this might be outdated but... I would stay in Appleton Saturday night. They have a better night life than GB, IMO but not much else you'd be interested in. Wonder around the "Paper Valley" area. Have a few drinks and eat some good food. Youll find something that strikes your fancy. There a bit of everything. Do the game on Sunday obviously. I always found the parking to the east to be WAY easier to get in and out of than any other direction. Get there early and enjoy the tailgating. It'll probably be the most interesting/entertaining part of the trip. Do the GB stuff Monday. Maybe Krolls for lunch.

    Cell phones should have breathalyzer locks. You blow more than ... and the only thing you can do is arrange an uber. Someone get to work on that. I only want 10%.

    I'm not really a fan of the NBA. I'm really not a fan of Lebron James. I REALLY can't imagine an argument for him not being the GOAT. He's SO much better than anyone else ever. To have him to watch from afar and AR12 to watch up close... well it's a good time to be a fan of sports.
  13. Running Backs rated 27th in league

    Reading comprehension. He didn't say he "helped our running game". He said "they helped that number tremendously". With Hundley and Rodgers' rushing stats the team averaged the 4.5 YPC he mentioned. Without them the rest of the team averaged ~4.1 YPC. That's a pretty significant difference and it makes complete sense to mention how the QB's numbers inflated the YPCstat while talking strictly about the RB group.
  14. Driver's final season he earned what would adjust to ~$3.2 in 2018. That's about a quarter of what Nelson was set to make. That's a much steeper price to pay to be the good guy and send off a beloved player the right way. If the price to do so was the same for Jordy as it was for Driver I'd be all for it (as I bet the FO would have) but they are two vastly different situations.
  15. I think he does. I think he and Jordy are both primarily red zone threats at this point. They do the same things well. If the FO feels the same way they essentially got bigger and slightly younger and cheaper there. I think Graham will be doing a lot of what they had Jordy doing early last year. Those two are sort of redundant despite playing different position.
