It's tricky. On the other hand, if you take away those passions and talents, you're removing the joy from the player. That's not good either. Bottom line is, Marty Bennett has had multiple interests his entire career, he's been criticized for it most of his career, and he almost always proves the doubters wrong. This isn't anything new.
If there was a game the Packers were going to play more base 3-4, it would be that one. With that said, I'm not sure it's ever the right call to become less athletic on defense in today's NFL. So probably not much.
Welcome to overreaction Monday, everyone.
I did not hear him yesterday because I was in the press box. Have heard good things about him.
I think there's a good chance the open market will have a big, fat contract for Davante Adams. I'm also sure the Packers will draw their line, as they do for all second-contract receivers. At the end of the day, in a league that doesn't guarantee much money, Adams will probably face the decision of whether to gamble on himself. Take the bigger deal elsewhere that isn't guaranteed? Or take the lesser deal with a better chance of seeing more of that money with the Packers? Usually, receivers in that position have chosen to stick with the Packers, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
He played four snaps, all of them in dime. It was the first time the Packers had their top three draft choices on the field in the same game. Still waiting to get their top four on the field. That the Packers decided not to place Adams on IR shows they expect something out of him sooner than later.
Yeah, that was a no-brainer signing in hindsight. Packers had to upgrade their edge. Brooks is good for depth at a reasonable price.
You are 100 percent right, and make a good point. Although, to be fair, Spriggs is on IR with that hamstring injury, so the Packers don't have the option of putting him on the field. Even if they did, though, he did not show anything in the preseason to make you believe he'd be doing better at left tackle than Kyle Murphy is now. Not good for a guy the Packers traded up in the second round to draft.
Thanks for your time, Tom. Although, to be fair, anything is better than online training videos!
Right now, it's easy to say Jason Spriggs, but it probably depends on what other injuries happen between now and the next seven weeks.
Certainly not left tackle. Probably not right.
You know who hates Thursday night games more than you? Players. By a mile. You won't find a single player who likes it, and I don't blame them. It's a cash-grabbing, terrible idea. But we'll all be paying attention this Thursday night, which is why the NFL hasn't stopped.
That's a good place to end today. Thanks, as always, to everyone who followed along. Until next time, take care.
