  1. Mariota

    I would have agreed before this year, but being a top 10 "project" draft pick, you can see tools that Dalton just doesn't have. Performance was comparable though. Greg Jennings said that Philbin didn't allow him any freedom to audible or call a two minute drill either, and who knows what he had to endure under Gase. I think we're just now seeing what he can do.
  2. Mariota

    I could have seen it happening before he threw LaFluer under the bus for "putting him in a box". That's before he proceeded to run the worst offense in the league and franchise history under the new OC I like Mariota alright. You will be extremely disappointed if you think they he'll be an upgrade at the position, but lafluer was able to manufacture offense with a similar personnel grouping. As a fan of both teams , I have to say that I really wish that I could have seen LaFluer's offense with Tannehill. Forget what happened in Miami, he's awesome.
  3. Our Run Defense Scheme is Broken AF

    I told you all that Pettine was awful. Rivers basically said he made things easy for them by running the same play over and over again. He's got to go.

    Mike Pettine is a hack. Should have let LaFluer bring in his own guy. Any play caller worth his salt is going to shred his 90s defensive scheme. We've seen two of the best in Reid and Pederson do so with relative ease, with the latter being undermanned. Imagine if we had the same quality of play calling on defense as we do on offense . Typical Packers FO, handing a job to a guy who has done nothing to keep it.
  5. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    I wasn't referring to the numbers as much as the film. It is incredible considering how young he is and how how he's only 8 months removed from tearing his ACL

    Simmons is already playing. And though the sample size is small, he looks like he could become the best player in the draft.
  7. packers selcet mAtt leFleUr as head coah

    He coaches well against good defenses. His offense scored 34 against NE last year when his QB could barely grip a ball and the WR/TE group was down to mostly reserves (sound familiar?). He doesn't run some flashy looking offense like McVay or Shanahan, though that may change as the personnel does, but he can get a lot out of what skill players he has.
  8. Grant is a placeholder WR. But he's the kind of WR who will look good with Rodgers. Encouraging that Jace is set to return this year. He will be a household name once he puts it together.

    Unfortunately, I'm a Tennessee fan. The dropoff from MLF to their current OC is startling. It's really quite incredible some of the games that they were able to put together with Mariota and the other issues they were having. He's as good as they come as a play caller, IMO.

    What are you talking about ? They all had great careers with Rodgers. The guys who didn't make it here didn't. He threw 4,400 yards last year with a Adams and a bunch of guys who wouldn't see PT on a good roster.
  11. 2019 WR Corps

    Where have you been during Rodgers' career? He's done nothing but elevate players. But with some guys like Phillip Dorsett and Geronimo Allison, there is only so much you can do.
  12. 2019 WR Corps

    I think he could definitely become a good player, but to suggest he's currently a polished #2 is way over the top.
  13. 2019 WR Corps

    Comparing this team to the injury-riddled Tennessee squad a year ago, there is clearly a lack of talent. There's Adams , a 1 trick pony PA guy, and nothing but slow TEs and #5 caliber WRs. Rodgers isn't holding anyone back, they really are that mediocre.
  14. 2019 WR Corps

    That's ridiculous. He looks like a JAG with speed.
  15. 2019 WR Corps

    Mariota has worse trust issues than Rodgers does, and he got 900 yards out of him in year 2. And I'm not sure what you're talking about. MVS had nearly 600 yards as a rookie and is on pace for 900 now. That's the only young guy or recent addition I'm seeing with any ability. Are you suggesting that he should be more productive?
  16. 2019 WR Corps

    He's basically going through the same thing Cooper did in Oakland. His numbers are representation of his QB, not him. Trust me, he's a star with even a capable QB and would eventually take over as #1 here.
  17. 2019 WR Corps

    No . I'd offer a first. Surely he's wanting to get as far away from Mariota as possible and is basically losing money at this point of his career. He'd absolutely be worth it.
  18. I'm a Tennessee fan. I like Taywan a great deal. Always have. I think that he just was overwhelmed as a rookie coming from a small school and developed confidence issues and really had trouble putting his mistakes behind him. He needed a change of scenery. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he makes a lot of plays for Cleveland. He may not be a full route tree kind of guy, but he is a very effective separator, especially deep. His skill set jives more with a gun slinger like Baker than with an offense which can hardly operate a passing game and was absolutely dependant on the WRs to elevate a bad QB.
  19. 2019 Draft Thoughts

    His football character was questioned by many scouts.
  20. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Is it possible that we run more 4-3 and use him as an OLB, like Anthony Barr? I see both Smiths as DEs. And 4-3 is supposed to be beneficial to interior players like Daniels and Clark. Gary seems like someone you don't want to run at, and someone whose blitzing ability that you absolutely have to account for.
  21. 2019 Draft Thoughts

    I didn't like it at first, but when we took Sternberger,I was very happy with it. I understand that addressing the defense and o line was important, but I felt like it was a very good WR class and didn't want to miss out. Needless to say, I'm very happy with that pick . I wasn't that big on Gute during his first year. But he's clearly an upgrade, one that we should have made years ago. He gets real football players, tough guys who love the sport. And most important, they can play. No more softies like Jason Spriggs or guys with a 0 football IQ like Josh Jones. And hopefully the IR all star team won't be filled with GB players. Those are the kind of guys who lose football games for you. The type of guys who we are bringing in now are ones who will fight when the pressure is on. We've missed that , specifically on the defensive side.
  22. 3[75]: Jace Sternberger [TE; Texas A&M]

    I love this pick. He can be as productive as any TE in this draft class with Rodgers. Talented route runner and he'll catch everything.
  23. LaFluer is a teacher, and just as importantly, he's a learner. He will continue to work on perfecting his craft just as Rodgers, and learning new ways to help his success. That is how you earn Rodgers' respect. McCarthy stopped working years ago, and was never good in the first place.
  24. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    So Rodgers prefers working with people who know how to do their jobs? Why is that such a bad thing?
  25. Second Round WR - It’s Time

    Funny, I am a TN fan and am curious why you choose him. I loved him in college and he's got electric quickness and separation ability. But of course those fans aren't used to having good receivers and don't understand that it takes time to come together in most cases.
