Fuck it, give him a call, Gute.
When he said 'Intercepted' in the end I fucking lost it.
If he fits money wise I'm all for it, great guy and still a good player. Packers might want to move on and try to bank on younger guys, though, especially considering the high draft picks that went to the secondary (looking at you, Josh Jackson). But it is comforting to know that when any CB looks shit in the season preperation, Tramon will be ready and willing to sign with the Packers.
Apparently Kevin King was the top rated red zone corner according to PFF
Im conflicted. One the one hand.... PFF is fake stats
On the other, that’s pretty cool
On the other hand, I don’t trust Kong’s durability.
Can he play defense and stop the run? Can he play WR and get separation?
Oh, so the team can't win against SF. Not a chance. At least they are paying Rajahhs tons of money to FUCKING WASTE the last years of his prime.
Where are we strong? QB and RB. Good. Lets draft those positions first.
Dillon's gonna be a beast
I am reading another Packer book. This one is celebrating being competent again after 25 years.... It was released a season before Super Bowl 31.
Anyway a few interesting factoids:
HC Lindy Infante wanted to draft Barry Sanders, and GM Tom Braatz talked him down on draft day. They knew Mandarich was a run blocking specialist and relied on brute power. Infante ran a 3 WR, one RB style offense which favored passing. It was going to be a disaster and they sort of knew it.
OT Ken Ruettgers had been drafted in the 1st round in 85 and the Packers were sort of desperate to move him to a new team as he had a tendency to hold out in training camp since he did not like to play in preseason. I believe the book states he held out 5 out of 8 years he had been a Packer by 1994.
In 1992 (93?)The Mandarich mess and Ruettgers head aches lead to Ron Wolf offering the Vikings 2 1st Round picks for Gary Zimmerman. The deal was done, but then the Viks backed out. Zimmerman went to the Broncos for a 1`and 2 instead.
OLB Tim Harris had a great year in '89 (19 sacks) and held out the following year. The Packers could not get a deal done and they wound up shipping him to the Niners for a pair of 2nd round picks. The fans were livid as the Packers had little for star power as it was and here the organization was sending talent away again. GM Braatz told the fans at a luncheon that Harris had drug issues, so he needed to go. The Niners got wind of this and cried foul, demanding reparations. Paul Tagliabue would not rule on the situation. FFWD a year later and the Packers, with new GM Ron Wolf were trying to sign Niners OC Holmgren. Holmgren had a lucrative contract and was penciled in to be the Niners HC if Seifert chose to leave. . Instead of letting the Packers sign Holmgren clean, they indicated they would try and legally block the move. Holmgren had offers from the Steelers and other teams, and the Niners said they would not block any of those moves. Ron Wolf sent the Niners back a 2nd Round pick as a make good for Harris (who was a Niner for several years anyway) and they let Holmgren go to the Pack as part of the deal.
List of RBs with 30 TDs and at least 5 YPC since 2017.
- Aaron Jones
Oh, you thought there was going to be more names? There isn’t. The list is literally just him.
For context, all this stuff on Packers twitter about Aaron Jones is because of this list not having him in the Top 10, which is pretty sad and imo just wrong.
I’m confused about Leveon in that list. Guys was useless last year and the line in front of him is no better
Easier to re-sign for cheap since the rest of the league is living under a rock
Both Aaron's on the Packers are being criminally underrated going into the 2020 season.
Sadly I don't think Rodgers is "criminally underrated". While he's still obviously pretty good, his issues are also pretty apparent when watching games and a deeper look into stats back it up. Might make a longer post about it when the season comes closer, but all the main issues are "fixable", just a question of whether he does it or not.
Then it gets messy. I'd probably put Zeke over him based on his being keyed on by defenses. I guess I'd put him and Jacobs as 9a and 9b
You got the second best QB the last 25 years who is still playing to his prime level n your just coming off a really good season an ready to make a better run this year......... then you trade up to take his replacement n fuck up the chemistry.
Theres never more than a handful of truly elite QBS at one time in NFL. Roger's has been that since he became a starter. Great QB prospects are 20/80 at best to work out as a true elite QB.
you ride the great ones as long as you can then draft a guy . You dont piss off your best player going into a year where your competing for a superbowl
My top 5 rbs
Henry - good situation n I think has 1 more elite year next year with 1500+ n 12 to 15 tds
Saqaun - other than 1 game played like dog shit last year but I think he bounces back strong
Kamara- like Saqaun dude was dog shit last year but also like Saqaun I think he bounces back strong.
Elliott - probably still most complete talented RB n still in his peak at least another year
Chubb - looked like the best RB in football to start last year but after Hunt came in he regressed it seemed or maybe wear n tear caught up
I personally don't care about all this ranking stuff, but was really surprised to see that he gets so "little" respect after the season he has had.
Jones should be ahead of Chubb, Mixon and Bell
