Yeah, that's not a surprise the Panthers are expecting Rodgers. If there's any chance he can play (and it appears to be a good chance), they better be.
Talent, and a lack of depth. Did not help yesterday the Packers were without Nick Perry.
Does Ted Thompson get credit for drafting those RBs on Day 3, or just blame?
Haven't gone back and watched the film, but I didn't even think about Jason Spriggs until you just mentioned him. So that's a promising sign. Hundley's jersey was the cleanest it's been yesterday: just one sack.
I didn't see, because I was busy trying to get down to the locker room.
Think pass rush, especially on the edge, is the first, second and third-biggest need at the moment. Everything else comes after.
I think he still wants the opportunity to compete for a starting job, and he won't get it here in Green Bay. Think he's gone after next year, and the door will probably be open if (when?) his attempt at being a starter QB elsewhere falls through.
Jake Ryan is what he is: a good thumper against the run, not great in coverage.
It would come down the a tiebreaker when both teams have split the head-to-head, which I haven't looked into at all, because it ain't happening.
That's a great question. I really don't know. It would be interesting. I'd say probably, especially for the finale, if the Packers are 100 percent out of it. But I'm not sure.
I think the Packers have a really good shot at the No. 1 seed this season if Rodgers stays healthy, so I agree.
I'm not here to say Ted Thompson is perfect or definitely should be back with the team (he isn't, and there's a valid case to be made that the future is now), but drafting is an inexact science. Thompson hits big on the backfield, doesn't get as much instant production on defense from his top picks. It's no different than the song and dance done around the league at draft time. Even the best whiff almost as much as they hit. Just keep that in mind.
Because fans live in the moment. I don't fault them for that. It's their right. It's why sports writers don't get emotional about the team they cover. We evaluate the total picture.
The irrationality of it all gets old, but I'm here to field any question about the Packers, not just every question that's rational. If you want one of them fired and can state a logical claim, then fine. But to say they're awful at their jobs is just not accurate.
Missed it. But like anything on the sidelines, competition gets heated during games. So that's usually more signifying two competitors than bad blood.
Yeah... he sure wouldn't hurt.
Nick Perry is a good player. He's not a dynamic sack artist. It's all about expectations, which are notably increased with a big-time extension. But I don't think the problem with this edge rush is Nick Perry. The problem is a lack of depth, especially in regards to youth.
Evaluating the whole picture is looking at how Mike McCarthy has adjusted to in-season injuries, how he's kept the team in the playoff hunt annually for almost a decade, and how few other coaches are able to do that. It goes both ways. I've been on record saying it would be an organizational failure if Packers never return to the Super Bowl with Aaron Rodgers. I'm also not making a knee-jerk reaction when Rodgers still has as many as seven or eight good years left.
Good question. I'm not entirely sure myself, but guessing it's because the clock would have kept running had Hundley's knee being down been correctly called on the field, so it was trying to compensate for that.
Biegel is an easy answer because he got here two years later.
There isn't a team in the NFL that Aaron Rodgers couldn't play for. He's stayed in Green Bay. That should tell you a little something about how he really thinks.
