Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: What's changed?
« Last post by #66 on March 21, 2019, 04:20:47 PM »
I think that this defense we had was weak at best and has been for years.  DB's decline, poor drafts, injuries, lackluster performance, aging, etc. too it's toll.  So easiest way to fix it is to invest in some folks at key positions where we are weak.  Pass rush, haven't had any in three to four years.  When an average qb can throw for 350 yds plus against a defense, that is telling you something and TT and MccArthy didn't listen.
So we got two rushers into the fold now.  Hey they makes even better sense, one for each side, who would've have thought that??  This also allow us a little more flexibility with the upcoming draft, which also is loaded with young talented pass rushers.  What we aren't done on Defense, absolutely not.  Initially I as thinking drafting at least two great pass rushers coming out.  I was thinking 2 of our top 3 picks whould be edge/de type players.   With the FA signings, I'm now thinking 1 edge rusher, 1 MLB and one OL with our first three picks.  I wouldn't be drafting any offensive weapons (WR, RB, TE) til after rd 3.  This defense needs speed and talent.  Alot of talk about the Iowa TE's.  Te's typically don't do well in year 1.  Not opposed to it, we'll have to see how things pan out.  If Ferrell, White, Sweat are gone at 12, I'm moving back and getting some picks in rds 2-3-4, depending how far back we move.  I have openly stated on this and other boards that my 104 yr old deceased grandmother in her grave played better than our current LB roster.  That is a high need area.  Our LBS rarely make a play in the backfield, haven't had any fumble recoveries, intercepted or batted down passes, have zilch for coverage skills and are slower than molasses.  We need to draft at least two, maybe three!

I think the signings bring talent and depth to positions in need.  It allows us greater flexibility in the draft.  I'm excited about Alexander and Clark on Defense.  Maybe Adams can make a step forward on DL. Daniels is starting to slip performance wise and age wise. Would like to see Wilkerson brought back.  We are a better team because of better talent on defense and  finally getting rid of deadwood (Perry, for example).   Draft should benefit us more, if we draft the right folks at the right positions!!   
Oliver needs to be added to your list and even more so when you mention that you think Daniels is slipping. 

These signings did not just bring versatility to the field - it also brought versatility to the draft.  I am very wary of pegging certain positions in certain rounds as some posters have done.  As some have said, this team needs talent across the board.  The versatility that these signings bring on the field means that Gute does not need to lock in on a pick or position as much as he had to before.

Furthermore,  as far as TE, I think that the facts that Lewis and Graham are both aging, TEs take time to develop, Tonyan is an unknown, and that this draft is deep at TE all point towards a high probability of a TE being drafted AND support that logic.

As far as ILB, I believe everyone here would agree that marked improvement is a must.  I also believe that there will be an ILB taken and I would very much like to see a stud.  Pettine's defense has historically featured a "chase" LB with sideline to sideline speed.  Frequently he lines up at the WILL linebacker position.  The question that I pose: is can Josh Jones play this position?  He has great speed for the position.  His instincts as a player are better near the ball.  Conversely, his instincts are not suited to play deep safety. 

I believe that Pettine will be deploying Jones much more as an overhang defender/chase linebacker in this defense IF Jones displays the ability to learn the defense.

Some good responses to the question presented, only one person lost their focus and started chasing butterflies. So that is good.

I agree with your conclusion fargofootball, that it would be for a QB. Last year during the draft I mentally noted that Belichick was giving up some valuable draft capital to stockpile some picks for 2019. It is not hard to draw the deduction that he was trying to best position himself to possibly draft the eventual replacement for his 41 year old QB. New England could in theory make this trade and still have three 3rd round picks to add to their Super Bowl winning roster. It is just one of many subplots that will be fun to watch playout.

If I HAD to pick there I'd go Jonah Williams, OT, but I'd be all over that trade.

If the Packers had kept Perry this year, his cap cost would have been over $14M, so they saved $3.3M by letting him go.

Martinez, Crawford, and Burks are the only ILB.

Would not surprise me to see Josh Jones get more work in there this year, but expect a draft pick to address ILB.

Besides, FA isn't over yet, just the initial rush. And the Packers were definitely part of that frenzy. They still have some cap room, so a second tier ILB is not out of the question. Here are some possibilities from Walter Football:

Mychal Kendricks would have a better rating, as he's a talented linebacker, but he might be going to prison for insider trading.

.....................Now we all know what Gutes next move would be and that would be to turn to Murphy and ask him what his next move is going to be.

A reasonable supposition - with the absurd addendum above. You are a quality poster and an enthusiastic one RT, but this particular hobbyhorse of yours is becoming an obsession.

I gave you a 'smite' vote for that unnecessary comment, the first one I can remember giving ANYBODY on this forum, ever. Please come back to a place where you only express opinions on Murphy's power in threads, where that is the topic. If you start one yourself to air those views, it's fine by me. I have no power to make you back off on this, it can only come from you. Please.

No "smite" because no spite, but definitely, this seems a bit over the top for a top drawer poster. So, Gutekunst is a Murphy puppet? Indeed, a thread exploring the relative powers of Gute and Murphy might be interesting. But snide asides are not necessary.
