Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Did the packers squander Aaron?
« Last post by scoremore on Today at 08:29:02 AM »
The Packers did not squander Aaron.  I'd argue the training staff did.  Hard to compete for a championship with your best players on the bench nursing preventable injuries.  Year after year after year hammies and groins.  Sickening.  I hope to god the changes are made to the trainers when the new regime comes in.

It's going to be tough to get a win in this one.  Bulaga out not sure on Breeland.  We are playing with half a roster.   If they pull off the upset I'll be impressed.  Don't think it's fair to judge Philbin solely on this game tho.  Agree with Shinesman.  Need up tempo quick passing game.  If Rodgers tries to do the sandlot thing he'll get killed.  The Pack should be up for this one.  Expect a good game.  Not going to predict a final outcome on this one as I have no idea.  I'd take the under though.  It will be a low scoring tough battle.

Let's see if the game plan is smart enough to include some quick passes and uptempo series this time. And will they again pull Aaron Jones for a quarter at a time for no apparent reason? Sunday will tell!

I like that Monken calls plays in the NFL.  The hard thing about hiring an OC is you have to project his future performance as HC.  Monken, like Philbin has experience as HC.  Like Philbin his record isn't so good.

Belichick's record wasn't so good until he went to NE and decided to start Brady. He's been the platinum standard since. Sometimes it just takes the right situation meeting the right person. By the way, this is not even meant to hint that Monken might be the next Belichick. Its just an extreme example.

Belichek was actually in the middle of making the Browns a winner. They were on track for the playoffs and the owners decided to announce the move of the franchise before the most important part of the season. It took the air out of the whole team and sabatoged them. They think they did it on purpose to deflate the team because if they made the playoffs, it would have been very hard to justify the move to the city of Cleveland.

Watches a whole special about those browns on NFL network a few months back.

Packers vs. Bears:
Regular season, all-time: 96-93-6
All-time, postseason: 1-1
All-time, in Chicago: 49-52-2
Streaks: The Packers have won five consecutive regular-season games against Chicago and 15 of the last 17 meetings.

First one to a 100 wins is the winner?

First Favre and then Rodgers have definitely been Bear killers. So, will this continue on Sunday? I'm thinking the Bears left a lot on the field in their win over the Rams, and will have a let down in this game, while the Packers will play with renewed energy and focus. That is just a feeling, but its a good feeling. Something that has been missing in recent weeks.

So many times with players and coaches, just a change of scenery can make losers into winners.

Agree on that.  There could be some excellent coaches who have lost with bad rosters.  And some other mediocre coaches who have won with some great players. 

I know it's ultimately about W-L.  But in a game played by 45 players, one of whom throws all the passes, the coach is not the determinative variable on W-L.

Roster move:

The Packers signed G Nico Siragusa to the active roster from the Ravens practice squad and placed G Byron Bell (knee) on injured reserve.

Siragusa was a player that was an OL Packers type coming out of college and was a 4th round pick by the Ravens, but tore up his knee his rookie season in training camp. Interesting flyer.

For anyone else wondering, no, he is not related to Tony "Goose" Siragusa.
