Daniels to me is similar (albeit better) than Cullen Jenkins was on that Super Bowl team.

Matthews now is worse than Matthews then.

HHCD isn't Nick Collins, but he isn't all that far behind (except for these 2 games this year)

No one is remotely close to Woodson.  He was the difference maker.

And we haven't touched on the "other" corners yet.  

I would say that Daniels game is MUCH more complete than Cullen Jenkins was. It's hard for an interior guy to be as disruptive as someone like Woody, but yeah Woodson was finishing his prime as a HOF player.

I agree with your statement...Daniels vs. Jenkins.  That what I said Daniels is similar (albeit better) than Jenkins.

We need that blue chipper back on defense.  That guy who is Woodson-like in how they can change the game.

I too would love difference maker on D in all levels, BUT so do the other 31 NFL teams and most if not all  of them do not hit the FA market.  The ones that do, will go for such a high price, that GB is very rarely in the mix.   That is not a bad thing, but it is the nature of having a consistent playoff team with limit salary cap space.  

Drafting late in the round also limits the abiltiy to get a difference maker via that route.  You can only hope that GB can land one in the later part of round 1 or in the later rounds of the draft.  Lets hope Kevin King is just that player.

At least how I score it: 

Raji>Clark

Picket/Jolly/Jenkins<Daniels

Matthews (2010)>Matthews (2017)

LOLB<Perry

Hawk>ILB TBD

Bishop?Burnett

Shields>House

Williams>Boundary 2

Woodson>Slot 1

Collins>HHCD

Pepprah=Brice

2017 only has the edge on the front 4.

ILB is maybe a push.

Secondary is a total blow out in favor of 2010

Jones looked a little like that guy yesterday.

Packers are now the only franchise with two QBs that have beaten all 31 teams in the league other than their own. (Yes I know Favre beat us too).

You bet he did.  My new nickname for Jones is "cowbell".  We need more cowbell!

Aaron Rodgers

Tier: 1

Rank: 1

Screen-Shot-2017-08-28-at-20.54.44-1024x

Write-up:

Aaron Rodgers threw for 40 touchdowns last season. He threw only seven interceptions. Yet, five games into the regular season, Rodgers was being discussed as a problem for the Packers. He was being viewed as someone who wasn’t playing to his previous standards. It was true on a primetime game against the New York Giants, but that was the only time it was true. Rodgers was the best quarterback in the NFL last year and it wasn’t just after those first five games. The reason Rodgers appeared to struggle during those five games was the poor play of his receivers. Rodgers led the NFL with 67 accurate passes that his receivers turned into incompletions last year. 20 of those 67 came during the first five games, those 20 cost him at least 273 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers was still creating big plays and throwing with precision to every level of the field, the raw numbers didn’t reflect it because of his teammates failings not because of his.

Rodgers’ accuracy percentage over the first eight games was 80.2 percent, that would have ranked third in the league if sustained for the full season. His accuracy percentage over the second half of the regular season was 82.5 percent. That would have ranked him second for the full season. Rodgers ultimately settled on third with a season-long accuracy percentage of 80.45 percent. That number doesn’t do him justice though. Rodgers was constantly throwing his receivers open into tight windows. He regularly threw the ball while moving to his left or his right within the pocket, he regularly broke the pocket and release the ball back across his body while his momentum dragged him in the opposite direction. Pressure doesn’t have a major impact on his ball placement and neither does throwing with anticipation. Rodgers’ is the purest passer in the NFL and it’s reflected in the fact that he ranked no lower than seventh in accuracy to any yard range. He was accurate on 73.83 percent of his passes that travelled further than five yards downfield, the best rate in the league by more than two percent, and was second on throws within five yards of the line of scrimmage, his 90.88 percent trailed only Sam Bradford.

It should come as no surprise that Rodgers threw an interceptable pass once every 40.89 attempts, 2.45 percent of his passes. He has a historically good touchdown-to-interception ratio because of his accuracy but also his intelligence and processing ability in the pocket.

Everyone on the Packers offense is elevated by Rodgers’ consistency. He makes Jared Cook a viable tight end despite his constant drop issues, he makes Jordy Nelson hugely productive even when he’s notably slowed in his return from a torn ACL, he allows Davante Adams to score 12 touchdowns even while dropping six. Six was more than every other quarterback lost to all his receivers except for Derek Carr. Rodgers makes his offensive line better by constantly changing the point of attack within the pocket. He constantly sets and resets his feet to create leverage for his linemen and help them recover when beaten. He doesn’t drop his eyes or lose sight of his receivers while making those movements, he manages to do everything at a high level at the same time.

He’s clearly the best quarterback in the NFL at a time when the NFL has many great quarterbacks.

Did you know?

Aaron Rodgers’ receivers cost him at least 875 yards last year when they failed to catch accurate throws. Cam Newton was the only other receiver to eclipse 800 yards, third place was Andrew Luck with 559. Rodgers also lost 11 touchdowns because of his receivers. Excluding hail maries, only 3.04 percent of his yards came on inaccurate throws that his receivers caught. 27 quarterbacks had a higher percentage, three quarterbacks more than trebled Rodgers’ percentage. 13.38 percent of Rodgers’ throws travelled further than 20 yards downfield, the fourth-highest rate in the league.
