  1. Lynn Dickey

    Dickey and Joe Namath were two QBs that had very special abilities in passing the football. Namath was on better teams which is why he won a SB and Dickey will be known forever as a great passer that never got to the big dance.
  2. Bob, thanks for sharing and also for the mention of the ST ranking that Gosselin puts together every year. I miss his articles in the local paper....
  3. Washington State used the Air-Raid offense and not the spread. The OTs have very simplistic training regime in that offense. (Check out the book "Perfect Pass") The drive blocking, subtle techniques like hand placement, and switching will be what Cole needs to master in order to start.
  4. Graham has said he took less money so he could play with Aaron Rodgers. I think he will find out that's not the case. He signed for less money because Philbin is the new OC and he made an all-pro out of Finnley and could make Graham an all-world selection with his ability. Philbin will make a yuge difference in this team!
  5. Camp Battles

    Spriggs lacked the strength that Oline guys need in the NFL. This isn't uncommon with guys from college that are light on their feet. This might be the year he shows that added strength and healthy enough to push for a start. Let's face it, he was drafted to be a back-up to Bak, and Bulaga knowing Bulaga has an injury history. I don't think the Packers ever thought he would start right away.
  6. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    I think Monty will be the 3rd down back. Jones, Williams, and Mays/Bouagnon will be the 1st and 2nd down backs. I still think Monty is the best short yardage back the Packers have, but has to stay healthy. If any goes down...they have some depth at that position.
  7. Camp Battles

    I think Amichia will be a dark horse winner for that RG spot and Murphy will be healthy RT that starts the first game. WRs are a big question mark, but have a comfortable feeling about the Packer's Edge rushers....
  8. I thought Raih was a good hire with solid background from UCLA, IOWA, and TT.
  9. Just a couple of things....Dorsey wasn't the only GM that thought Baker was the best QB of the group so in retrospect, maybe they picked the best guy. I didn't like the Ward pick at all especially with Chubb sitting there. Ward isn't like Alexander, the Packer's pick, he's very fast but also very slight. My thought was BPA at 4 and he wasn't it. They could have gotten a ton of good looking CBs in the second round. Secondly, I think the Saints really overestimated the capabilities of Davenport. They should have tried to make a bigger splash and traded to get Chubb. What I have read since the draft was that Davenport has a desposition that lacks a killer instinct. Too soft spoken and kind......I think Melin Olsen was somewhat like that, but he was a killer on Sunday afternoons. They better hope Davenport is the same.
  10. It seems that this year's WRs are more athletic and better route runners than last years' group. MVS looks great on all the short videos, but a friend sent some game film of him and he didn't look that good. He seems to know he's not getting the ball and he rounds his routes off and just doesn't sell it to the CBS. Now that doesn't appear to be that big of a problem to fix. I really think this will be a great opportunity to see a Janis type receiver that can catch the ball with very good body control.
  11. He has skill and size....what will be missing from his capabilities are pass rushing moves, and hand skills. How quickly he grasps those concepts will determine his slot on the team.
  12. For the record....Alexander isn't that small. He's on the short side, but has some meat on his bones. Ward is on the short side and doesn't weigh a lot. Between the two, I would expect Alexander to have fewer injuries. Now that he's a Packer, I really want him to stay injury free.
  13. Would love to see the Packers select Fitzpatrick if he fell to 14. If not, Davenport could/should be the pick. I don't expect Davenport to be the guy his first year. I expect him to do a Clark and come out his 2nd year as a can of whoop-*** that Pettine releases and watches his defense shred the opponents.
  14. Bob's mock is linked to one of the best experts in talent evaluation and this is a very good haul of rookies. The only objection I have is Jones from Ohio State. I think there are better prospects in the 4th round. Maybe Gutsey will let TT make that selection!
  15. What I want and don't want in the draft

    That corner was Devron Davis who is a very active corner and I hope the Packers can grab in the 7th round. He's big and fast had a rediculous low % when passers targeted him.
