Hello everyone, welcome to all from Heinz Field, where it's a beautiful night for football, especially if you're in the press box drinking coffee.
I'm not sure they need him to do that. How about staying in the pocket and slinging from there to start.
I wouldn't read anything into it. The Packers always do that kind of stuff in the off-season.
I was thinking about fans saying that kind of thing today and it made me think: Who are the teams who make it to the Super Bowl within five years of taking over? Who are the teams that are consistently in the playoffs and close to getting to the Super Bowl? Let's see, Seattle, New England, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, Dallas, Carolina, Green Bay. What are the common denominators? A good/great quarterback and a long-tenured head coach. Think about that for a minute before you ask for a new coach and GM.
Not really. I think we just don't realize how prevalent marijuana is in the NFL. It's pretty prevalent in society and it's used both recreationally and medicinally in the NFL. The reason players get caught is because they can' seem to drive 55. It's a fact of life that marijuana is available everywhere and legal in many places. I think that's what we're seeing.
Groin injury against Baltimore. He didn't finish the game and did not practice all week. He was questionable.
It's part of his normal rehab. He's still three weeks away before he's even eligible to play so don't get too excited. He's going to rehab as though he's going to play this season and then they'll see. If the Packers are out of the playoff hunt, I doubt he comes back. And just because he's throwing doesn't mean he'll be cleared. The bone has to be healed completely.
That has almost nothing to do with Wojciechowski. This was Thompson, Ball,, Wolf and Gutekunst's decision. The pro personnel department does the research, i will grant you that. But they new Bennett was a risk but they took it because they've never had a blocking TE like that before. They took a chance and struck out. Cook was a financial decision. He wanted more than they thought he was worth and they went for Bennett. It turned out to be a poor choice. I wouldn't call Kendricks a bust because he allegedly smoked pot. But he was supposed to be a complimentary piece at TE, not a starter. He's not a run blocker.
I suppose it would, but these things are determined over the course of one season. Call me in two or three years and let's see where the three are at. Watt got off to a great start, but he has not been much of a factor in the pass rush lately. But you can't judge him on just one year either.
He still has a right arm, I'm told. It did not fall off.
If they didn't coach him how to play in the pocket then they failed him. That's where he needs to make hay.
He'll play. I think Fackrell and Brooks will play more, but Biegel is seeing a steady diet of 15 to 20 snaps.
If they don't turn the ball over four times.
I don't know. He hasn't proved he can do that yet. I'm skeptical.
The executive committee doesn't have much juice any more. Unless the franchise is in dire straights, they don't demand changes. They're No. 1 job is to evaluate Murphy and I can't see them pushing to get him fired.
No. I think they should take him to the end of his contract and then see what he wants to do and what the situation is with Gutekunst and Wolf.
