Inside Linebacker ... IT IS TIME

I'm vocal about acquiring a quality ILB.

I know you've been conditioned to only consider the draft as the sole means of filling gaping roster holes, but with Gute as GM the possibility exists that we might sign a FA or two or even make a trade for a player.

I would be more than happy to sign a FA or to make a trade to improve the consistently wretched ILB play.

I suspect and certainly hope that Gute will be active in filling the holes at WR, OT, DL, and ILB through a combination of the draft and FA/trades.

Despite your preconceived notions about my opinions, the draft isn't the only way to improve the the Packers' roster.  As someone who has asked you MULTIPLE times for such scenarios where you manage to "fix" our issues, I instead get sidestepping.  Find me a SINGLE NFL roster who doesn't have a significant hole on their roster.  You won't find one.  Your gold standard in the Patriots has averaged less than 17 PPG over the last four games.  There's going to be issues on your roster.  That's just the reality that we live in with the salary cap.  All I'm asking is do me a solid and put together a little mock offseason.  Nothing crazy.  Throw some draft picks and some FA contracts out there and let's see where we go from there.

Yes, by all means do so.

And then given that, in addition to getting "roasted alive" by Graham on one play, Kuechly also has 10 Passes Defensed and 2 INTs this season, go ahead and post JUST 1 of Blake's 2019 PDs or INTs.

That would be a fun watch.

Why on Earth are we using PBUs and INTs to evaluate pass coverage as a whole?

This isn't Madden. Despite all your consternation about Martinez in coverage, he's still only allowed 56 fewer yards on the year. 

Kuechly has actually been targeted more on the year than Martinez has.

Problem: with whom do you upgrade? The FA pool is littered with older players and others who we despise like Darron Lee for example. The draft isn't all that great in the first two rounds either unless you really like Malik Harrison or Kenneth Murray

Murray would be a huge upgrade and give the ILB corps something it hasn’t had in forever- moxie.  It just depends on how the draft board falls.

Totally on board with the first paragraph. The second paragraph is just not making any sense to me. A rookie would die having to make the reads that Martinez is regularly being asked to make.

I meant Summers is most likely able to match what Martinez does physically, obviously I doubt he'd be on BM's level mentally. I think Blake's best attribute is his cerebral game at this point, knows the playcalls and how to set the defense. His ability to stay healthy has to be up there too.

Budda Baker is a safety.

It's not a LB list. It's a Top 10 NFL Tacklers list.  Baker's a safety with NO ints.

Going to be tough to do better than Blake unless you pay for Schobert or Trevathan. Draft looks bad this year at ILB.

"Where's your Moses now?"

Dylan Moses pick number 32

Even when you have a roster without a significant hole, dudes all of a sudden forget to show up and then significant holes happen when you least expect...
