    Awesome clip - like walking down memory lane man. I laughed at the end when the announcer said “Greatest game in Monday Night Football history!” I guess right up until that game in 1983, it may have been!
  2. Saints Watch- Additional First Round Pick

    I know it’s popular to want to hope/believe that the Saints are going to somehow tank this season, or finish somewhere in the middle to bottom half of the league, and while that may happen for whatever strange reason, I’m not counting on it. Unless Brees goes down like Rodgers did last season, I’m not expecting any drop-off in performance. They have enough talent on their roster to be very competitive in the NFC. It’s ok to hope for the worst I guess.

    As Dean Wormer would say, "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son!"
  4. Random Packer News & Notes

    I left Wisconsin before high school, so I didn't attend any of the UW state schools. But my dad was a UW grad and told me all about the "Wapatuli" parties of old. My God, that just sounded like an insane concoction, followed on by a wicked hangover. Good ol' Wisconsin - still holding down the fort in the drinking column. Not sure if I'm proud or embarrassed, but it is what it is.
  5. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    Yeah, I think Leader said in a different thread (and I agree) that it would be nice to give these three new draftees an opportunity to stay with the system long enough to get a decent sample-size of their abilities. You start bringing in FA's and it decreases their opportunities on the field and in making the squad in general. Nothing against Dez - I think it's possible he could work out here (if the circus isn't too distracting), but I just have a feeling at least one of these new guys is going to work really nicely for us.
  6. Random Packer News & Notes

    Watched that Dallas game on the NFL network last night again also - what a great game to just sit and watch. Martinez had a helluva game, as did our patch-work Oline (aside from a few sacks given up). Ol’ Marty Bennett had himself a great game also (kinda weird watching actually). Aaron Jones was phenomenal running the ball also. Kept finding myself saying “God, I wish I could go back in real time to that game and warn Rodgers to look out for Barr in the next game”. There was so much promise at that point in the season. 4-1 and really starting to click, only for it all to come crashing down a week later. Sigh.
  7. Aaron Rodgers and new contract

    Honestly, $33mil is a number that’s probably the most defensible and easy to move on from figure. Do it, explain it, move on from it, and hope we get another Super Bowl or three before it’s all in the books. Less or more money and there will be drama. Any talk about expecting Rodgers to take less “for the good of the team” is foolish and unrealistic.
  8. How would Alabama fare in the NFL?

    Almost every rookie in the NFL comments on how surprised they are at the speed of the game when they arrive in camp. There’s just no comparison, and Alabama would get absolutely crushed by any team in the NFL.
  9. 2018 GB Packer free agents

    Good people - this thread is for discussing free agents currently on our roster. There's another free agency thread that's for discussing players from other teams that could make for interesting prospects for GB. Not trying to sound like a mod or board police - it's just easier to keep track of discussions this way and it eliminates redundancy. Gracias!
  10. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    Any guess what Fleener could be signed for? He’s an athletic type receiver - kinda surprised the Saints didn’t retain him.
  11. DeShone Kizer

    I wouldn’t pay any attention to Donzo - he shows up every now and again in message boards and usually contributes nothing except to antagonize.
  12. Sure makes you wonder. I also wonder if Edmunds or James had not been picked up by the 18th pick if Gute would’ve grabbed one of them instead? No way of knowing for sure, but if neither were in Gute’s “elite” list, then probably not.

    They had that and released him. Jordy.

  15. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    Yeah, probably something like that. Humility would work in his favor, and the sooner he realizes that he may need to take a "prove it" deal, the sooner he'll end his search and get on with 'proving' that he still has game. He's just not in a very good position to play hard-ball with teams, in spite of the fact that this was a potentially weak WR draft class. Attitude has a lot to do with it, and he'd be wise to reflect on his a bit.
