Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: The OFFICIAL Packers v Seahawks Game Day Thread

I've experienced  CenturyLink Field more times than I care to count.  You get to those lower seats and you have to yell as loud as you can in somone's ear to have a conversation.  Can't imagine what its like out in the middle of the field.  Gotta go with silent counts and hand signals.  Rodgers and some of the vets have been though it a few times, its the younger guys that could have problems.

  This game is the momentum changer. Win this one, then go into Minny and make a statement.

 We play CHI and Minny once each. CHI and Minny play each other twice. CHI still has the Rams, Minny still has the Pats. Still lots of losses to go around to our division rivals.

Why has Seattle been a tough place for the Packers to play? "I think it's a difficult place for everyone to play," Mike McCarthy said and then he joked that "their stereo system is the best in the league."

McCarthy on Thursday night games: "This is difficult for all the players in the league to come off of a Sunday game and play on a Thursday night."

Add in that the Packers need to travel 2 time zones to play this game and they now are facing the most difficult situation on their schedule this season.

Sunday was as step in the right direction. More running (finally!), some timely defense and no head slapping plays to give the game away. Good. Now the Packers play their old nemesis in Seattle. Where bad things have happened more than once. At this point, this is a one game season for the Packers, similar to the playoffs. We'll see what happens, and I'll remain optimistic, but the clock is ticking. Maybe this season will be like the Bears game- a horrible first half followed by an exhilirating second half and a winning outcome. Never give up!

Mock Drafts / Re: '19 Mock v.1

 Nice posts. Lots to be excited about for the future. Players really seem to be taking to Pettine's defense and Gute isn't messing around when it comes to bringing players in.

 The strength of the draft so far is DL and Passrushers (finally!). It also looks like it could shape up to be a good OL and DB class too. You guys are more than likely right with Gute going with the BPA meets NEED strat in the 1st three rounds. After that though I can see a DB or two in later rounds if they are BPA, especially being armed with 10 picks.

 I see complaints about our O-line from some posters, but I think most the teams by far in the league would love to have ours. Sure there were some plays given up against some elite passrushers and times when Rodgers hung on to the ball for too long. Bulaga when healthy is still a really good player and they really seem to like Bell. I agree we need to think about the future at RT, but really don't see it as an emergency at this time.

 No doubt Gute will have another good draft, hopefully we finish the season on a good note instead of a bad one.

Mock Drafts / Re: '19 Mock v.1

I guess it depends on what you think of Jackson as a potential starter. I'm not sold on him. How could anyone be? He wasn't impressive yesterday vs. a weak MIA passing offense and hasn't looked like a starting quality player this season. He appears half a click slow and may ultimately end up at safety.

The Packers have invested 7 first or second round picks at DB, in the last five years. That is a heavy over-investment already. Now I understand that things sometimes don't work out in any given position group, but only 3 picks used on non-DBs, is already seriously under-investing in the rest of the team, you don't want to add even more to that unless you have to.

You must give Jackson time. He is, after all, a rookie, so no to another high pick at DB for 'just in case' scenarios. If Jackson still looks underwhelming (at CB) after two full years, fair enough. Richard Sherman, had an identical 40 time to Jackson (4.56) and both were the same weight (195lb), so while Jackson is shorter, he is stockier. Closer to home is Mike McKenzie (ran a 4.58), who is a similar size/weight and was a solid player for Green Bay.

I was impressed by how well Jackson played in college and how broke to the ball and racked up interceptions there. Imagine (for example) dismissing WR Adams after HIS second, fairly unexciting year in the league. One rookie year usually isn't enough to be sure, half a rookie year is even more premature. Not everyone can flash 'out of the box' in the way Alexander did.

I'll second what OneTwoSixFive is saying here, and add that Jackson played mostly zone at Iowa, so he's having to learn man-press for Pettine.

He's going through some growing pains, but he has a high football IQ and top notch instincts. Give him a little time.

But I could envision a possible switch to Safety for next year. Let him play centerfield, read the QB and make plays on the ball. After all, he was a WR before converting to CB at Iowa.

I was also impressed with how Tony Brown is progressing. Man, if he can get it together between the ears, he has all the other tools to be a solid performer.

Also, Will Redmond was touted as a possible high draft pick before tearing up his knee dropped his draft stock to being a 3rd round pick.

Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com had this to say about Redmond shortly after the 2016 NFL draft: “If healthy, he could have snuck into the back end of the first round.  He has a big-time burst, but was unable to put time down on paper due to injury.”

I'll add that GB should resign Bashaud Breeland (give him Tramon's contract), and I think they can pass on drafting another CB next year.

Safety could likely be in the offering for next years draft. How high? Let's wait and see if Josh Jones and Raven Green can stack success on top of this weeks solid play.

I was pleasantly surprised by both of them. Would be great if their arrow's keep pointing up.
