  1. Brian Gutekunst to become Packers GM

    Sure he did....with another HOF QB who took a different team there 2 years later. So did Rex Ryan. And Jeff Fisher took a team to a Super Bowl. I don't think that justifies keeping them now .
  2. Brian Gutekunst to become Packers GM

    I'm reluctant to give credit to someone for making the right move 5 years after it originally should have been made. In fact, it really makes me question his ability to make the correct personnel choices and lead this team. Judging by how the team performs without Rodgers, I'd say that's warranted.
  3. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    They aren't firing anyone from the Good Ol' Boys club until they have another losing season or epic playoff goof. Capers didn't get fired until his presence wasted half of Rodgers' prime, so Moss being employed at this time next year means nothing.
  4. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    Coaches can be testy after a game, but OTAs? That is some seriously poor character. I think Bill B. Could humor a few good old Wisconsin boys by answering very relevant and meaningful questions. And he's , you know, great. Moss is as expendable as they come.
  5. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    When has McCarthy ever made a proactive change to any coaching position? His personnel changes consist of sacrificial lambs who he uses as scapegoats. The ST coach, and now the QB coach and DC. Could he really only tell that these guys were unqualified after everything completely blew up for the world to see? I don't buy the notion that these coaches are worthy of the jobs that they have, they are just warm bodies occupying the position until their time to be sacrificed.
  6. Is Winston Moss on his way out of Green Bay

    This isn't some widespread bashing by the media. It's a few people trying to do their jobs by getting answers to questions the fans want to know. He's got the easiest and most forgiving fan base in the league to deal with, he can afford to toughen up his skin some. I see in Moss what I see in many of the stubborn, old ***** out there. They have knowledge and ability, or else they wouldn't be where they are, but they know what they know and they don't typically seek to expand their knowledge or be particularly easy to deal with. I would prefer someone with some ambition. He's clearly very comfortable with where he is and wants to be nothing more, since this is how he chooses to present himself. He looks unemployable. I'd prefer a coach who aspires to improve his craft rather than coast on his experience.

    Moss is a loser. Many times when I hear or read interviews from NFL positional coaches, I really think to myself, "surely they could do better". I'd prefer someone who is intelligent, approachable, and a good communicator as a coach, no matter the designation. Moss exudes none of these qualities. This is the associate head such? McCarthy makes some terrible personnel decisions.
  8. Round 1, Pick 20: Frank Ragnow

    As a U of A fan, Ragnow is perhaps the best player that I've seen come out of the program, sans Darren McFadden (or so we thought). Absolutely dominant. He's a year one Pro-Bowl caliber player.
  9. Running Backs rated 27th in league

    Scouts said that Howard was the best pure runner in a draft class which featured Elliott. They had a rookie QB with no receivers, his production was simply a product of a predictable one-dimensional offense. Howard averaged over 5 YPC in his rookie season, and has had two 1k seasons to his name already. He's clearly a few cuts above any of our RBs.
  10. Running Backs rated 27th in league

    McCarthy seems to expedite the process of running RBs into the ground. They eventually all go, but health has been a major problem for every RB since around the time that Rodgers took over. Even the backups.
  11. Jamaal Williams/Aaron Jones

    I think that Williams could improve this year. His vision is good, as you could tell by the way that he set up that screen TD against Pittsburgh. He's just a fairly normal athlete, and probably just needs the game to slow down for him. In college, not only was he physical, but very good at making subtle movements to make defenders miss and create additional yardage, though he's not a home-run hitter like Jones. Montgomery sucks at RB, IMO. He had one excellent game, and he's been about as effective as Williams was last year ever since. He needs big space, not little space. Jones feels like a perfect fit for this offense. When was the last time that we had an explosive playmaker? Jordy got down the field, but Jones can get yards that I haven't seen from a player on this team in a while. If he's not getting most of the touches, he needs to be a noticeable part of this offense.
  12. DeShone Kizer

    If your argument is that $2M guys don't make a huge impact, I'm sure everyone will agree with you. You basically just get decent depth guys at that cost, ones who can do a decent job when called upon. Several of those guys did just that. It's just a shame that TT didn't address TE or ILB in such a way in 2014 when the roster was actually good.
  13. DeShone Kizer

    $8M on 6 guys who have proven to play at an acceptable level is perfectly fine. Cook was one of those guys, and we saw how much of an upgrade he was, despite not being a great player.
  14. DeShone Kizer

    You can sign any run of the mill TE or ILB for an inconsequential effect on the cap, and they would be improvements over Nate Palmer and Richard Rodgers. What I'm talking about is signing guys like Jahri Evans and Ahmad Brooks , not shelling out $15M per year on players.
  15. DeShone Kizer

    If they prove they are starters in camp, great. But mediocre players shouldn't win the starting job by default, just because the GM did not bother to bring in any meaningful competition.
