  1. Packers sign Devin Funchess

    Yeah in the article, the attempted explanation for the zero career slot drops is analysis from Frank Reich that Funchess' two best routes are curls and outs. Extrapolating from there, I'd guess that Funchess is one of those guys who struggles with over the shoulder catches and on balls where his back is to the QB. If he can get his head turned and facing the throw he seems to catch the ball. Didn't James Jones have the same issue if I recall?

    I'm with you to the point that the depth of this WR class sets things up well to snag one in the 2nd round. Here's where I point out that a big reason the Packers haven't tabbed a WR in the first round since 2002 is because they've been incredibly blessed with talent at the position during that span. It's been at or near the bottom of the list of annual needs the entire time. I don't rule out a WR in the first this year because it's one of the team's most glaring needs.

    Article is from last year but since Funchess only played 1 game in 2019, it does bring up some promising tidbits and tells why the Colts were excited to have him before he got hurt... https://pantherswire.usatoday.com/2019/03/30/panthers-nfl-free-agency-devin-funchess-colts-andrew-luck-t-y-hilton/ And there's this... Is Funchess the Packers new slot receiver? Because he's terrible outside but damn near stellar from the slot.

    Well, that's kind of the most important part.
  5. Possible cut casualties?

    This. Place is becoming damn near unreadable.

    There's definitely an odor in the air. Guess it's up to Gute to talent-proof the roster.
  8. Packers Expected to sign Za'Darius Smith

    When the Packers signed Reggie White, my school principal got on the PA and announced it to our entire school in Milwaukee. I no longer live in Wisconsin. Did school principals do something similar when the Packers inked Za'Darius last March?
  9. Random Packer News & Notes

    I expressed distaste for Murphy grabbing power that of an owner and concern that the GM was being marginalized. Are we sure that it's time to close the book on this one? Are we assuming everyone involved will stay satisfied with less control than offered in other places? No chance the concerns I raised will ever present themselves? Ok, suit yourself.

    Yeah I felt very strongly about Derwin and Edwards and still do. You don't see me complaining anywhere about Jaire. Which is why it's odd that someone felt the need to tag me. And the Packers structure is not holding them back right now. Doesn't mean it might not cause issues later when egos grow. And it doesn't mean the Ron Wolf model, which I prefer, is dead and buried either. The book isn't written on any of these things. But that's the nature of this forum I guess.
  11. 2019 Divisional Round Playoffs

    Do we know yet if our game against SF next week will be the early game or the late game? I'm assuming the late game since the AFC has no west coast teams left.
  12. In the last half hour this thing has really started to blow up. Got seen and liked by a Seahawks fan with 7000 followers and he started re-tweeting a bunch of them. Went from 6 followers to 100 in about 15 minutes. This one is the most popular so far...
  13. Russell Wilson does... Might be my favorite, good job @smetana34
  14. Using all of these, keep 'em coming!
