If the Packers lose again, their season is over. At that point, but only at that point, it becomes prudent to look to the future. That primarily means player development.
Thank you for asking. Pete Dougherty often writes his opinion on what should happen. My job is to report information and at times analyze what it likely to happen, not what should happen. The difference is large.
That's not true. Many QBs run the football. Once they're out of the pocket, they are more likely to run. That's why they're deemed a runner.
Move him around. He can line up in the slot, perimeter or backfield. There isn't another player in the offense as comfortable playing all three places. There's some value in his versatility.
There is no doubt a QB of Aaron Rodgers' caliber makes the defense better.
They hold tiebreakers over Seahawks and Cowboys, and they would hold the tiebreaker over the Panthers if they win in two weeks. They don't hold the head to head over the Falcons. So they need two of the three from Seahawks, Falcons and Panthers to lose twice, while winning out themselves. It's doable. Unlikely, but doable.
I don't think Janis or Davis would be better than Cobb, though they are much less expensive. Comparisons between Cobb and Adams don't hold. They are vastly different WRs. Cobb is a slot guy, Adams on perimeter.
Did you think that in early October? Because I thought the Packers looked invincible leaving Dallas. No team looks nearly as good without their starting QB.
I think it's slim because it's hard to see Packers winning out, which they do. If the Packers indeed win out, I think there's a very realistic chance of them getting a wild card. The Seahawks, Falcons and Panthers all have difficult schedules remaining. That's helpful.
This is the third comment I've gotten about *Taysom Hill getting special-teams tackles. Did not see it, because I was working in the press box during that Saints-Panthers game. Sounds like it was something to see thought.
Then, sir, you don't understand the value of a franchise quarterback.
Not sure it's fair to say they haven't tried. Like anything else connected to the QB, it's a different universe between Aaron Rodgers and Brett Hundley. If Kendricks produces this little with Rodgers, then it's relevant.
You could argue he left money on the table on his last extension. Don't think Rodgers is interested in hamstringing the Packers, but he rightly should want to be paid what he's worth. How much do you think he's worth, based on how this season unfolded?
Missing the entire padded portion of training camp was killer. He'll have a big offseason ahead. Still way too early to write him off, because he's plenty talented. Just needs to be given the chance to develop.
Ha. That's another way to look at it, sure.
Yes, but that is zero surprise. Vince Biegel missed five months. I've been surprised he's done as much as he has. i had zero expectation for him given the time he missed.
Probably the same 1-game suspension Danny Trevathan got for his hit on Davante Adams. That would be my guess.
The Packers have to completely revamp the edge rush this offseason, and the draft will be crucial in that process.
Yeah, I don't know. Again, I did not see it.
The Vikings are an extremely rare exception. There's a reason everyone is surprised with what they've done. It almost never happens.
Can't say without knowing how he recovers from the Achilles, but that's a really tough injury to return from, especially for a guy who wasn't blessed with a lot of speed to begin with.
Yeah, tell that to the Denver Broncos.
No clue. Alex Van Pelt was asked that last week, and he basically hinted that maybe there were more of those plays called, and Hundley simply handed off the ball. Not sure if that's the case or not. Clearly, he should run more.
You answered your question, yes. Money.
The Packers need to get two productive outside linebackers (not just one) before they get another corner. But, yes, they need another corner too.
Did not think he looked indecisive or slow when he ran.
That it's really hard to be a successful coach in the NFL, which is one reason the Packers should not fire Mike McCarthy.
All right, folks. That's a good place to stop today. We'll do it again next Monday after the Packers return from their game in Cleveland. Until then, take care everyone.
