  1. Packers sign CB Breeland

    I believe he got a free agent deal with Carolina this off season, but the injury caused a failed physical. Apparently he is finally healthy.

    You are right. From now on I won't post unless my blood alcohol content is over 0.15, and even then, nothing positive.
  3. 2019 Draft Discussion

    In my ideal world, the best players available would be 2 defensive ends and a OT with the first three picks, and all would have starting ability. Then I would re-sign Clay Matthews at a reasonable amount to play MLB in a 4-3 system. Now, back to reality after brief moment of insanity.

    Leader, I like you asa poster, but sometimes you have to pay attention to context. My comment was a response to the list of free agents and their injuries, and the ensuing comments.
  5. Wilkerson ankle injury: reportedly out for season

    Age does. That is a downside of free agency- they typically are older players with a lot of wear and tear on their bodies.

    Or maybe he needs to pee in a cup- performance enhancers and other substances can cause psychosis. too bad for the Vikings- this is how it starts when the wheels start falling off.

    I get it, but my pet peeve these days are guys like Nagler that put something like that out there without confirming that it was indeed an RPO with bad communication. It is a good, informative post on your part, but I think questionable commentary by Nagler. I put him in the Zach Kruse category- somebody who puts a high volume of stuff out there, but doesn't always know as much as they claim. just my opinion.

    Is Nagler's statement true, or was Rodgers just putting on a fake to get the defense moving in the wrong direction? Cobb and Kendricks are blocking the edge to trap them inside which makes me think the play was designed to go outside to the QB's left. Could be a broken play like he indicates, but it is really hard to know what the true call is on a play like this.
  9. Mike Pettine Defense

    Can it be consciously done, or is it more just dumb luck? I tend to favor the latter. Even in the first round, picks are about a 50-50 chance of being a hit. Don't get me wrong, Spielman is a very good GM, probably one of the top GM's. He had something like 6 or 7 pro bowl players in his first three drafts. But you are starting to see that change just like it did for Thompson and picks are starting to miss- Treadwell is sure looking like a miss as an example. I think we deal each year with the effect of Aaron Rodgers: The Good- where he can, through sheer talent- take a team much farther than other QB's could with a given level of roster talent, and The Bad- where his ability to make the team more successful than the roster talent ordinarily would achieve puts us in a disadvantaged draft position.

    Cobb had a bad game yesterday. The whole offense is off right now, and that is not unexpected given that Rodgers is wounded and your most explosive running back was on limited duty since he hadn't played or practiced for the first two weeks. He is a threat to defenses.
  11. Mike Pettine Defense

    True, but to a a certain extent, developing a dominant super bowl roster involves getting some picks to over perform their draft status and have players on first contracts that over perform the rookie contract. The luck just wasn't with us for a few years.
  12. Mike Pettine Defense

    Ted went after pass rushers. The problem is they never developed. Datone Jones came in advertised as the ideal 3-4 end, with the quick first step, and while he was serviceable, never really developed into the guy they could count on. To an extent, Jerel Worthy was going to be the guy with the quick first step that could be disruptive in the center of the line. Then there was Thornton- a third round pick that was a total miss. We have had a certain amount of roster rot due to picks that never produced the playmakers, unlike Minnesota for example that found edge rushers with something like 4th or 5th round picks. Capers also had the advantage of having some talent there when he arrived. Aaron Kampman wasn't the "ideal" 3-4 OLB, but was a very accomplished edge rusher, and that in and of itself helped Clay Matthews early on . Pettine has to oversee a rebuild on the defense, so he needs to be given time. There was too much to fill in this last off season alone.

    It is still early, and NFL seasons can be unpredictable. I prefer the approach of not too high with wins, not too low with losses. I do however believe that this team will get better.
  14. Wk 3 postgame: GB 17 • WAS 31

    I don't think he has a "dead arm". Just tough to have the consistency with the receivers when he practices so little- didn't play much in pre-season and now he practices only on Saturday. It really isn't surprising that the offense isn't in mid-season form yet.
  15. Wk 3 postgame: GB 17 • WAS 31

    I obviously no expert, but he put the 4th down throw lower than it needed to be- Cobb should have had it, but it made it harder imo.
