I thought it was strange James Looney and Kendall Donnerson were inactive. To me, they've reached the point in their season where it's time to figure out what they have in those guys, along with Robert Tonyan, Jake Kumerow, etc. But I guess so long as there's a mathematical chance at the playoffs, even a miracle-size chance, you play to win the game.
I would think keeping Bashaud Breeland is a priority regardless of anything else. And they should have the cap space to make it happen.
In short, while I have not heard Vic Fangio's name as a candidate of interesting, that doesn't mean he isn't, or that he shouldn't be. I'd agree he's definitely worth a look.
Seventeen carries is basically the new 20. By that, I mean that with how the game is played now, you just don't see many 20-carry games anymore. Only two RBs in the NFL averaged 20 carries per game entering Sunday: Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley. The top 10 rushers in the league averaged 16.25 carries per game. Let's just put a stop to the idea Joe Philbin ignored Aaron Jones yesterday. His carries need to be in the 16-17 range, not the 10-12 range.
The Bears are 9-4 and just beat the Los Angeles Rams in a game it held the NFL's best offense to 6 points. They, in fact, do not suck.
Well, it should feel good to win. The fans hoping for a tank job in the final month don't make sense to me. There just isn't a big difference between picking 9th and 14th, which is basically the variance with which the Packers could fall in the first round. I'd suggest fans enjoy a win, even if it doesn't mean much.
Yeah, I would think he gets at least one game. Just a guess.
I mean, when you can fire the guy who drafted Khalil Mack, Amari Cooper and David Carr for the guy who traded Khalil Mack, Amari Cooper and is trying to ruin David Carr, you have to do it!!!
Yes, but this isn't the NBA, where slot order is everything. For one, the Packers have two first-round picks, so they're positioned to maneuver pretty much wherever they want in the first round. Also, the NFL draft is a crapshoot. Jadeveon Clowney went first overall in 2013. Good player, but Aaron Donald went 13th. David Bakhtiari went in the fourth round. Russell Wilson was a third rounder in 2012. Robert Griffen went second overall. Just because you get the higher pick, doesn't mean you get the better player.
No, I do not think he's the answer at starter.
Joe Philbin said Jamaal Williams got the start because there was a run play tailored for Williams that he wanted to get to in the opening script. I guess that play didn't end up getting run, but anyway. As for retaining Philbin as permanent head coach, it's not that anything is wrong with him. I just think an external candidate is more likely, giving the Packers a clear change.
It might end up being the worst deal in the history of the sport. I'm not exaggerating. Only time will tell.
Encroachment, they blow the play dead. Offside, they don't. I believe that's correct, anyway.
All right, folks. Thanks to everyone for following along today. Make sure you read back through the transcript if you missed anything. If I didn't get to your question, good chance I answered a similar one. Until next time, take care.
