Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Oren Burks done for season
« Last post by ricky on August 11, 2019, 01:20:09 PM »
Ricky:

As far as I know, Burks was scheduled to start.

We now have an undrafted Free Agent taking first team reps.

We also have like a sixth round rookie behind him.

Its all about performance.  Can Bolton or Summers step up? Im not so sure they havent already.  Burks has tools, but you might see a better performance by one of those other guys.  We'll see how it plays out.

Beat me to it. Draft position is highly overrated. Just a guy is drafted in the first round doesn't mean he's gold. Just like an UDFA could well be a diamond in the rough. Does it matter how you get a guy who can play? Not to me. A recent example from the Packers: they moved up in the draft to snag Spriggs in the second round; they waited until the fourth round to get Bakhtiari.  But back to Burks. The Packers now have three exhibition games to find a replacement, either on the roster or added to the roster.

The ILB group will be fine as long as Martinez stays healthy, they will go as he go's. The question here is, doe this injury give Josh Jones new life on this defense? Burks and Jones overlap a bunch in skillset and their rolls in Pettine's defense. Personally don't think Burks loss is that big of a deal. I've yet to see much that equals the 3rd round draft hype for Burks.

This hurts since we do not have a lot of proven depth at ILB.

Burks was "proven depth"?

Nick Perry really gets such a bum rap from Packers fans when the reality is that he was a very good player for the Packers. He played in 81 games over his 7 seasons, that is over 11.5 games per season and when he was on the field he played a physical and violent brand of football. Football is a violent game and the more physical a player plays the more injuries that will occur.

Perry was hurt for most of three seasons, then suddenly got healthy for one year, got a big contract, then was re-injured. Burks is in his second year, has an unusual injury, and people are ready to write him off? Sounds similar to the feelings on here when Adams was hurt his second year, underperformed, and a lot of people wanted him run out of town on a rail. Or at least cut. Patience, grasshopper. Besides, it's a good thing this happened now, since it gives the team time to find a replacement. Time for the cliched "next man up." One person's bad luck is another person's opportunity.
