  1. Packers release Nick Perry

    I have no ill will either; couldn't stay healthy and probably wasn't a keeper except he had a breakthrough season in his walk year and GB had no other edge options. I hope he invests well and lives a nice life.
  2. 2019 Free Agent Discussion

    2 for 10, move him inside and have him as a depth/"in case of emergency break glass" edge rusher.
  3. Packers release Nick Perry

    I think it was Dennis Krause who insists that GB should try to bring back Matthews at a reasonable salary and play him inside....his last really good season in '16, that's where GB put him and he was terrific. Granted, he seems to have lost a step since then, but if you can get him back for 2/10 as the other starter next to Martinez, I'd take that. No downside if he doesn't work out.
  4. Packers signing Former Bears Safety Adrian Amos

    If Amos is the competent guy who holds down the fort while Gutenkunst looks for someone better, I can live with that. Can't be worse than the dumpster fire that was at S last season.
  5. Browns will have the best offense in 2019!

    Be wary of teams that win the Offseason Championship, that tends not to work out as often as you'd think.
  6. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    Yep, that was him.
  7. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    I was thinking about this, and as a Packer fan, one of my great "coulda beens" is Don Majkowski - now, I will tell you that QB wins is a dumb stat, except when you can compare directly to another QB, and oh look from 87-90 GB went 19-18-1 with Majkowski at QB....which doesn't sound impressive until you realise all non-strike QBs went 4-18 (strike QB Alan Risher went 2-1) with the exact same coaches/players. He had a promising, if uneven, rookie season, a decent enough 2nd yr, and an MVP-caliber 3rd season. He then held out and was starting to round into form when he hurt his shoulder in week 9, and was never the same. I'm not saying he'd have been a Hall of Famer, but I'd have liked to see how it played out....then again, if he stays healthy, GB maybe doesn't get the Wolf/Holmgren/Favre/White crew in to start a 25 yr run of success.
  8. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    I feel like a good part of the reason Terrell Davis wasn't a slam-dunk HoF enshrinee is that Olandis Gary and then Mike Anderson came immediately after him and averaged 100+ yds per game.
  9. Favorite unpopular movie(s)?

    You aren't missing much. But it's Sandler in a dramedy and I liked it well enough.
  10. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    I like Curt Warner as much as the next guy, but Davis ABSOLUTELY is a HoF player. Curt Warner was a guy who was VERY GOOD even with the injuries (and splitting carries with John L Williams); it's definitely justifiable to look at him and wonder.
  11. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    I definitely feel like he'd turned the corner in his career - early on, you could see the ability, but he was always there a step late to truly make a difference. Woodson turned him into an All-Pro caliber player from 08-10 and then *poof* it all goes up on a fluky hit.
  12. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    Holmes is my exhibit A for "RBs break down at age 30" - he had relatively low miles but still fell apart physically once he hit his age 29-30 seasons. Fun fact - OJ Simpson only had 5 good seasons.
  13. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    I think that even with the truncated career Sharpe has a HoF resume - 7 yr career (6 if you want to give him a pass for his rookie year, in which he caught the most passes for the 2nd most yards of a rookie class that included Tim Brown and Anthony Miller), 3x All Pro, led league in rec 3 x, TDs twice, averaged 73 yds/game with none missed due to injury (he played through cracked ribs and turf toe), and all that with a motley cast of QBs throwing the ball (I'd include young Favre as "motley"; there's a strong case that the best QBs he played with during his time in GB were Favre in '94 and Majkowski in '89). Also he rarely had a decent secondary receiving threat (Jackie Harris in 92-93 was about the best complement he had). The man was a beast.
  14. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    I'd put Ickey Woods on there too, maybe Ki-Jana Carter - tough to say with Carter, he never got a chance to be a fully healthy pro, poor guy had one freak season-ending injury after another.
  15. Favorite unpopular movie(s)?

    ....and that doesn't even mean that BAR is bad. Every time I have to start listing the Coens' filmography, it's like "holy m-fin' sheeeittttt"
