    Let's not get this thread locked too....
  2. Random Packer News & Notes

    It's too late now, his contract is expiring. PFT says they want to keep him but are tight against the cap.

    Since only 10% of the players earn over that and it is only a simple majority of all players to pass, it could happen.

    That's it? You're going to leave us hanging? That's cruel, Slinky.
  5. Seriously?: Do you read what you type? I really hope non-Packer fans (note the "a") don't visit and see that thread title. Ugh.

    I can't find this transaction listed on the Packer's site so I'm not sure of the exact designation. However, my understanding is that someone waived with an injury designation would come back to the team and go on IR if nobody claims him. It's possible that Roberts might not be gone for good.

    I think the point is that perhaps the cap should be distributed more evenly between QBs and non-QBs. If the teams let the QB salary inflation continue, it will impact their ability to keep other good players that can help them win games. A QB, no matter how good he is, is not on the field all of the time. He can't throw the ball to himself either. I see the point and it's a good discussion point but each team will have to come up with their own solution to his problem.
  8. Bart Starr passes away at age 85

    He's one of the few Lombardi era Packers I got to meet. He was definitely a generous man as he took the time to talk with a thoroughly overwhelmed boy (me) and gave me a time I will never forget. He will be missed. RIP Bart.

    Good then hopefully one of them will be healthy for each game.
  10. Packers UDFA Class

    This is why the Packers don't announce UDFAs until they actually sign the contract.

    I thought Kingsley was a Gryffindor....
  12. Packers Pre-Draft Visits Thread

    Some have speculated that Drew Lock was a "subterfuge" visit. However, it also makes sense to me that we'd want to evaluate QBs all the time. First of all, they sometimes drop to you (like Aaron) and a little practice won't hurt for when you really need one.

    The Lombardi era packers are leaving us one by one. The only one I ever got to meet is Bart Starr and I'm surprised he is still around given his recent health history. They were part of a legendary team and I'll miss them.
  14. Wk 1 postgame: GB 24 • CHI 23

    There have been a lot of remarks about how bad Clay Matthews was but I just noticed him making a heads-up play while I was re-watching the highlights. On the play where Nick Perry got his sack, Clay was blocked and didn't pressure the QB but when one of the blockers (RB Michael Burton #46) broke off into the flat, Trubisky was already feeling the pressure and would have jumped at an easy dump-off. However, Clay dropped back with 46 and covered him. Trubisky held the ball and Perry got his sack.

    Because sooner or later you have to pay the piper. They are just delaying the pain and someday, they will have to shed players as they will have no choice. Ted always took the long view and it appears Gute feels the same.
