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

As per team tradition, the Packers select game captains each week. Today's captains will be QB Aaron Rodgers (offense), LB Nick Perry (defense) and LB Antonio Morrison (special teams).

Hours from kickoff now and I do expect that the offense and defense will both come to play tonight. Just get the win and head to the off week with the Bears, Vikings and Packers all sitting with 3 wins.

How about trading Graham for Nelson? That way, everyone would be happy!  >:D

Rather have Jared Cook

It will be interesting to see if they have some kind of memorial before the game tonight

According to OTC, Packers could part with Graham in 2019 with a net cap loss of $2M.

$7,333,334 dead money
$5,333,332 cap savings

I'll leave it to others to decide if that's acceptable or not.

The difference between Jim Brown and Jim Taylor? Brown would "give you that leg then take it away". Taylor would "take that leg and ram it through your chest". My favorite tough guy player of all time.

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Why the slow starts every game early in the year?

Read this over at PFT and thought, "Wow, that sounds like what a lot of fans are saying about the Packers!" Unfortunately, not solutions, just problems. Oh well, maybe misery loves company? Or is there a similarity between the two teams? Starting with reliance on a star QB?

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/10/14/andrew-luck-im-not-discouraged/

Which leads me to another question as to why the Packers are off to slow starts so often. I think RT might well be onto something important with his idea that Rodgers simply is too laid back, and feels he can "turn it on" when needed. But, there is also the possibility that, added to that, is that AR has simply gone the "Favre route", where he is actually bigger than the team, and therefore feels he can tune out the coach and there will be no accountability. What is MM going to do? Bench Rodgers for a half to show him who's boss? Then again, MM did what I didn't think was possible- he made Favre accountable. So, if there is a new coach, it needs to be someone strong enough to rein in Rodgers and make him more of a rhythm QB, rather than constantly extending the play in hopes of getting that big chunk play.

A number of people suggest that it was an either/or situation with Cobb and Nelson, but I think it was a case of Nelson or Graham. Both players are in physical decline. The part that was baffling to me was Nelson was in the last year of his contract and willing to take less to stay one more year. Instead the Packers give a 3 year 33 million dollar deal to a washed up over-sized WR with a bad knee. After 5 games I am guessing they already regret giving out that contract. Only 2 years and 11 more games  to choke on that bad decision.

There is no cheap "out" for the Packers either- a lot of dead cap if he's cut next year, or even in 2020. If he can become a regular contributor, and can be used in a  quick pass, no huddle "move the chains" offense remains to be seen. Here are the numbers for Graham's contract:
