  1. Optimism? WHAT?!

    IF Rodgers can get back to his normal capabilities, then this team could run the table. If he stays on the current course, the defense will have to step up and that means King has to stay on the field. So you need two guys to step up, Rodgers and King. If either do, then the team goes to the playoffs....if not, just don't see them finishing better than 8-7-1
  2. Extend Mike McCarthy?

    Last night's game was on Rodgers. Look at the film and see how many times he threw deep when another receiver was open. MM can only do so much. Maybe the best news is that MVS is a player and even Rodgers is looking at him more.
  3. Extend Mike McCarthy?

    If Green Bay doesn't sign MM long-term...watch how fast he would get picked up by another team. Yeah, he's no BB....but BB was no Lombardi either. NFL HCs have a a pretty well defined segments of bad/good/very good/ and great. During the last 20 years, maybe two greats: Parcells and BB. I would put MM in the very good catagory. So if you replace MM, who's the great or very good coach that you're going to replace him?
  4. Rookie Watch (Week 4 Update)

    Didn't see the game, how did MVS look? Is he getting on the field on offense?
  5. Because it was a dislocation, they want keep his arms down which ST play won't affect.
  6. Who is your favorite Packers player,

    Jim Taylor, wore his jersey number with every sport I played, and Fred Carr their underrated LB. I'm too old school and haven't found players to take their place in my heart. I really like Rodgers, but not a tough guy like Taylor and Carr.
  7. Wk 2 postgame: GB 29 •MIN 29 (OT)

    Agree, and the NFL experts actually pushed the Vikes higher in their ratings and the Packers lower......14 games to go for the Packers to win the division to the surprise of experts but not to their fans.
  8. Mike Pettine Defense

    Pettine's defense has already been set..at least by the writers who cover the NFL. They see the Packer's strength in the backend, but say nothing about the Dline. I see the Packer's defense as strong on the line and in the back end with some pretty good players chasing the ball carriers in the middle. Are they a top 5 defense- no. Are they a top 10 defense- I sure think so. What I see this year from Green Bay is some real explosion from the offense, making the other team play catch-up. Green Bay's defense will be bringing pressure from multiple areas and have enough pass coverage to let that pressure get to the QB. Philbin and Pettine will provide a blueprint that will be very favorable to the Packers this year.
  9. I suspect Green Bay will try to dictate a horse race and see if Chicago can stay with them. Mack may not play because of conditioning. He could pull a hammy and be out several weeks if he's not careful.
  10. Packers Roster Cuts

    Alex Light, Raven Green, and Herb Waters all have the athletic skills for their position. They all need development and doubted they would have stayed on the PS. Light has been mentioned several times as a very good OT prospect. The selection of keeping Crawford at LB is a little surprising since Donnerson best fits the pattern of Light, Green and Waters. From the offensive side of the team, Philbin must have some really explosive ideas for the passing game. Might see 5 wideouts going long on one play and bring out three fresh receivers and go long on the next. I keep thinking back to 2011 and how he kept pressure on opposing team's defense with the passing game.
  11. No more wideouts or running backs needed on this team unless a great one is released. Three promising rookies, Allison, Yancy, and Clark back from last year and that is a very crowded WR room. RBs are similar in that they have a core from last year and with the addition of Bouagnon...that is another crowded room. New TEs, Oline guys, OLBs, and FS/SS are welcomed.
  12. Thoughts on the Offseason

    Did Gutsey roll the dice or play the odds? He went into an area of need in replacing the offensive and defensive coordinators. The upside is tremendous and the downside is minimum since who the Packers had could have been considered nominal value. (Personally I like Capers, but either his players quit on him or he never adapted to their skills.) Wilk is/was a very cheap aquistion if he improves at all on last year's performance, so not a big risk. Graham is the roll of the dice especially without Nelson. Lewis was a huge grab of talent (In blocking and possible endzone target.) again without breaking the bank. Kizer is a project so another roll of the dice. The draft is always a roll of the dice. People speculate before the draft, after the draft, and five years after the draft. So yes, Gutsey along with every other GM rolled the dice on the draft. So I don't see the changes as a high risk situation, but one of Gutsey played it smart and changed what he could that improved the team without breaking the bank. The draft.....who knows? It will be decided in three years.
  13. Random Packer News & Notes

    Gutsey picked three wideouts this year. Compare this year's WR picks to the two from last year: Yancey/Dupree and add Clark, since he was a rookie, and I think this year's guys look like better prospect than last year. Go back to 2014 draft and you have Adams, huge hit but also 2nd round, Janis a All-Pro ST guy and Abbey a injury washout. I still pick this year's group as better prospects from top to bottom. The main point is it's still too early to tell until the pads go on.
  14. Didn't TT try to remake the WR position a couple of times? He drafted Johnson and Dorsey in 2013, Adams, Abbey, and Janis in 2014, Davis in 2016, and finally Yancy and Dupree in 2017. The only starter was Adams with Janis and Davis as special team guys. So maybe high picks weren't used except for one, but a lot of draft capital has been used to improve the WRs. Now they have used three more picks for that position, yet almost everyone on this board (me included) expects a different outcome. I think there are two potential starters in this year's draft class compared to previous year's draft. The bottom line...optimism reigns supreme this time of year!
  15. Running Backs rated 27th in league

    Of course Hundley helped the run game....that's all he did right was run for a few yards here and there. His passing game sure didn't set anything up for any running attack. I wonder if Green Bay should have used the wishbone with Hundley last year? Then the stats would really be great! Sorry, sarcasm early on Wed. morning is my weakness.....
