NFL Talk / Re: Beckham traded to Browns
« Last post by Bignutz on Today at 07:46:25 AM »
BTW, the Browns look pretty good to me right now.

I mean, with Beckham and later Hunt, they seem to me to have improved their offense. And they already had a lot of good players on defense.

They turned it around last year, and they should be even better this year. I guess this shows you that the head coach makes a difference.


A team finally seems to be on the rise. After so many years of futility. Time will tell.

Draft Talk / Re: Packers draft strategy
« Last post by Hands on Today at 07:30:19 AM »
Unlike previous years, Green Bay only has to worry about 11 guys before they pick. I think, not 100% sure, that they must figure two maybe three QBs go before their pick. That leaves 10 players off the board that they figure won't be there. That leaves a lot of potential for Gutsy to think about. Will he move or take that player he's wanted but never thought he could get?

Like you wonder how the draft will fall for Green Bay after FA, I guess we will find out. I think if a player is an edge rusher and falls to 12, he would still pull that trigger for the right guy. I have no idea who it will be.

Draft Talk / Packers draft strategy
« Last post by marklawrence on Today at 05:59:09 AM »
We just signed two pass rushers, in a year where the draft is packed with them. You have to believe this means gute doesn't want to take a pass rusher with his two firsts.

I doubt there's an offensive player worth the 12th pick.

So I think these signings indicate gute wants to move in the draft, maybe up, maybe down, that part I don't see. You would move up for a qb or a pass rusher.  You would move down if you think your roster needs a serious injection of new talent. I don't see a qb worth moving up, and we just got shiny new pass rushers. So I think we're moving down.

Mock Drafts / updated mock
« Last post by SET4YRS on March 17, 2019, 09:00:01 PM »
 Gutey splurged on the defensive side of the ball in free agency so far. With a new offense, time to add talent through the draft to learn day one and be on the roster for the rest of Rodgers' career. The new window for the SB is opening. However, this year's OL talent isn't there for me. Running the ball more, quick passes and play action will help the current unit out. We also don't know if the new blocking scheme will favor the talent already on the roster.

 Here it goes.
 1) T J Hockenson, TE, Iowa
 1) Parris Campbell,  WR, Ohio st
 2) Darnell Savage Jr,  S, Maryland
 3) Mecole Hardman, KR/PR/WR, Georgia
 4) Mike Weber, RB, Ohio st
 4) Albert Huggins, DT, Clemson
 5) Ben Banogu, OLB, TCU
 6) Drue Tranquill, ILB, Notre Dame
 6) Cody Barton, ILB Utah
 7) Charles Wright, OLB, Vanderbilt

 Out of the few mocks I been working on, this is the one I wanted to post. This draft could also be used to overload the defense for Pettine. Some tough decisions, but really good problems to have. I'll continue to update this thread with any additional moves in free agency.

Draft Talk / Re: Tight Ends 2019

I don't know if you are trying to convince me or yourself that they will not draft an OL, bmaafi. I am completely indifferent to if they do or don't, but the small sample of chances does not convince me of anything. After QB the LT is the most important position on the offense and maybe the team, so why would a team not draft a player at that position if they are the top player on their board? David Bakhtiari the last couple of years has had a difficult time staying healthy, wouldn't it be wise to grab a solid bookend for the OL if the scouting department believes that prospect has Pro Bowl potential. Maybe.   

You also have Bulaga and his health issues at RT.  Maybe Turner can help there?  Meanwhile, Khalil Mack is on line 1...

Khalil Mack?  hysterical

Matt Kalil


Danno, I didnt explain that very well, the point was we get to face Mack twice a year with a pair of tackles who have struggled with injuries the past few years. It might be a good time to address the OT position early.  Agree, Matt Kalil is worse than what we have now.

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Allison Signed
« Last post by dannobanano on March 17, 2019, 06:19:06 PM »
In the MLF/Shanahan offense the #2 WR isn't asked top take the top off a defense. The #2 is the possession WR and the defines Allison very properly.

Now, if they do want to send a WR deep, they have both MVS and ESB to do that.

Again, you need to watch the 49'er offense to get a sense of what they do in the passing game, because you will see a similar type offense in GB.

Draft Talk / Re: Montez Sweat has a Heart Condition?
« Last post by The GM on March 17, 2019, 02:42:57 PM »
No idea on how this goes and wouldnt venture a guess.  Hard to say on the risk, but you also have to consider future medications if needed.  Some of that heart stuff can really drag you down.  Let the Packer docs make that call, it could be something very minor, but it does add a little twist to the draft.
