Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Chris Simms & Aaron Rodgers

The offense is designed to take pressure off of Rodgers.  Im just not sure Rodgers can do that.  Im sure it will start out that way, but a few losses does Rodgers revert back to I gotta do this myself mode.  Thats not a slam on Rodgers I just think it might be hard for him to give up some of the reigns.  That would be a huge change for him.  We'll see.

You can boil all of the conversation down to how you feel overall about what was said, the way it was said and the clues it gives to the man, rather than the player. Pretty positive vibes, for me.

Saw this earlier, but didn't bother watching because it sounded like a lot of rehashing of issues, with the same comments being made again. But when you suggested it was worth a watch, gave it a try. Good stuff. Rodgers comes across as focused, intense, and confident without going overboard. Definitely worth a watch. Thanks for the link and recommendation.

Worth the watch.

Rodgers comes across as “real” and wants it all to work out with new coach MLF.

Also, Rodgers is a hell of a good golfer.

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Mark Murphy suggests 17 game season

So much to consider beyond the salaries.

1) Enlarging 53 man roster and 46 man "game day actives"? I'd just go with everyone is active. Why not ? Maybe even add a player to the 53 (54 man squad)

2) Enlarging the size of Practice Squads.

3) Increasing the salary cap, in proportion, to account for the extra game(s) added to a season. May become an NFLPA requirement. More real games = more pay.

4) Increasing the number/definition of IR players that can be brought back during a regular season. Sounds good.

5) Remove two preseason games

6) Create an extra bye week (one in each half of the regular season)

My comments above are the ones in red.

Madden gaming has become an important portal to NFL fandom for many young people. Like you ricky, I mean no disrespect to the many who love gaming - my son and grandsons love playing, and all three are great athletes who play/played and love football.

As for the guys who rate players in Madden NFL - Andre Weingarten, a 23 year old who took scouting classes to augment his tech background and Dustin Smith 34, who ten years ago was a game-tester for Electronic Arts, searching for bugs in the game and ways to make the player likenesses more accurate.

These two guys deserve respect for their impressive accomplishments, but worrying or taking too serious how they rank players might just be a waste of time.

just sayin'

Are these meaningful or significant other than game playing? This is not meant to be disrespectful, just curiosity.

OK, apparently some players take this very seriously. But then again, some people just want to have a chip on their shoulder.
