  1. Gute's Amazing Roster Purge

    I agree totally. I'm hoping last season, while not terrible by any stretch, was an anomaly, because it certainly wasn't up to the level of the money he was paid.

    I would agree if we’re talking about a 2010/2011 Rodgers. He’s not the same dude, for whatever reason, be it aging, injuries taking their toll, poor decision making. Gute inherited a mess, and with damn near everyone being new now - coaches and players - I don’t think AR can be expected, or even capable of, carrying the load. I will lament, but not be surprised, if the Packers don’t make the playoffs this year.

    Remember when Don Majkowski came to town and sparked hope for the first time in like 20 years? It was like seeing a watering hole after wandering the desert forever.

    There’s a lot of young, knowledgeable posters in this forum. I’m old. So old, my dad almost missed my birth at the hospital because he was freezing his nards off at the Ice Bowl (lucky bastard). I grew up in the misery years of the Packers, suffered through the early developing years of Favre when we’d get so close only to be knocked out of the playoffs by the Cowboys, relished (balled my eyes out) when we beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl, balled my eyes out the following year when we lost to the Broncos, and everything thereafter. Love this team and it’s fans - literally a huge part of my own history!

    You've become very football smart in just 5-6 years!

    I guess we wait until next Tuesday for more FA news from 1265. Seems that's the day for news this year!

    I disagree - but I agree we need to hit on the right safety in the early rounds.

    And now he looks like a booger-eating alarmist. I'm sure he'll learn from this experience and move on. We should do the same.

    We need to invest in another "experienced" safety! Trotting one of our future draft picks out there this season isn't a good game plan, IMO. Amos will struggle if we leave him out there on an island.

    Everything about this situation irritates me. If Silverstein is wrong, he should be publically shamed for irresponsible reporting. If he’s right, it’s an embarrassment to the organization and “possibly” puts the Packers in a bind. Don’t like it either way, but I’m kinda grumpy today.

    I’m pretty sure Thompson’s house is desirable to about two people - Thompson and the previous owner. It’s a strange house for sure, in spite of its nice location. When viewing the photos of the inside, I could see Ted living there and felt for him in a way. It was classic Ted, humble and modest, and odd. Ted was and is a good guy - not flashy or verbose - just private and lonely. Wish him well in his fight ahead - it’s an ugly disease and wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
  12. Those aren’t “types of players” as much as they are criteria to be factored into their decision. Here’s a bunch more you didn’t list: Role on the team (chance to start, etc.) Fellow teammates - talent level of the team Coaching staff and their philosophy Supporting cast and facilities Culture of the team Is this likely to be their best (or only) offer? How does it rank against other offers? Probably many other criteria - these (and yours) are just a small sample of decision criteria. Each player has their own process of evaluating the criteria with their own weighted scoring matrix. Some players might weigh compensation much more heavily than the city or the weather. Players with a young family might have a different set of criteria, or weigh certain criterion more heavily than a single man. Decisions like these aren’t always just cut and dry.
  13. Call me crazy, but I think the decision to play anywhere - not just in GB - varies widely from player to player. I imagine each athlete has his own set of criteria for selecting a place/deal/situation that’s best for him. If I were a player, I personally couldn’t have fathomed playing in a place like Cleveland just a few years ago. Depending upon my position, I might feel differently about that place today, though, if I was a QB or receiver, I’m not sure I’d want to go there now, as I’d probably never see the field (due to the players currently on their roster). Every player is different, has a different set of circumstances to consider, and will have different pros and cons to work through.
  14. I’m truly amazed that you’ve accumulated over 100,000 posts as a fan of the Jaguars!

    Thanks for the additional info - I should’ve deduced that from the thread title also! Agree with others picks thus far - love either Bosa or Quinnen. I’m indecisive, and would be a terrible GM, LOL.
