I agree with you about Landry>Griffin>Nelson

What about Aaron Rouse hes a big physical safety that i think would complement nick collins very nicely. In my opinion i would want him over griffin in the 2nd round.

Griffin will not be available in round 2 when comes to the Packers' pick

but its possible that Rouse will be there in the 3rd round. Which is why I think they go TE in the 2nd and safety in the 3rd.

GIANTS CHOP THREE

A league source tells us that the New York Giants have cut linebacker LaVar Arrington, offensive tackle Luke Petitgout, and running back Chad Morton.

Arrington gave up $4.4 million in earned but unpaid bonus money from the Redskins last year at this time for the ability to hit the free-agent market early. But his agents, the Postons, overpriced him, and he missed out on the early cash rush.

Arrington eventually signed a trumped-up seven-year, $49 million deal with the Giants, which was low on guarantees and high on incentives. A chronic knee problem marred the early stages of the season, and then he popped an Achilles' tendon and was lost for the year.

Petitgout, the team's starting left tackle at the start of 2006, fractured his leg on November 5 against the Bears and didn't return for the season. The Giants' first-round pick (19th overall) in 1999, Petitgout was under contract for the next two seasons, at salaries of $5 million per year.

Morton tore an ACL late in the season, the second such injury he has suffered in three years. He was signed through 2009, and was scheduled to earn a salary of $720,000 in 2007.
we had an interest in him last year, you guys think we could have any this year? (Arrington)

Michael Johnson would be a great 3rd round safety. I like him more than Ross.

PACK ANGLING FOR ADALIUS

Regardless of whether the Green Bay Packers eventually make an effort to trade for Raiders receiver Randy Moss, the more immediate objective for the Favre Franchise is to land Ravens linebacker Adalius Thomas.

Thomas, a sixth-round pick in 2000, will hit the open market unless the Ravens slap the franchise tag on him. And, as we're told, one of the first teams to ring his phone will be the Packers. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Thomas is the clear-cut top target for the Packers in free agency.

The Pack plan to make Thomas, a hybrid linebacker/defensive end in the Baltimore defense, into a full-time defensive end. And that could be very bad news for current Packers defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, whose star has faded in the years since he was regarded as an up-and-coming sack master. KGB fell behind Cullen Jenkins on the depth chart in 2006, and Gbaja-Biamila's $5 million salary for 2007 could cause him to fall off of the roster entirely.

If the Ravens plan to use the franchise tag on Thomas, they'll need to have the cap room to do it. And that could ensure the release of running back Jamal Lewis, who re-signed with the team as an unrestricted free agent in 2006 and who is owed a $5 million roster bonus next month, and a $5 million salary in 2007.

wow if we get AD and draft SS in the draft look at what are D could look like:

DE: Kampman
DT: Prickett
DT: Williams/Cole/Jenkins
DE: A. Thomas

OLB Barnett/Poppinga
MLB:Hodge /Barnett
OLB:Hawk

CB: Harris
FS: Collins
SS: Landry/Nelson/Griffen
CB: Woodson

That is a monster D! 2 shutdown corner, to raising star safteys, great LB core and a very nice d-line, I think those 3 other DT's next to Ryan P. are all very good players and will continue to do a great job.

And yeah im still on the bandwagan of Barnett to the outside and Hodge in the middle. Hodge will be much better next season after a full off-season, i think he could be huge for us. I thought he was a late 1st early second round pick and we got him as a steal in the 3rd!

Oh and how do u get a sign on here, like whats the thing you need before the link?

There is a chance that Willis could slip down to the later 1st round (around 20-23) and the same goes for Posloszny. If we can't get our targets (Lynch, Landry, Okoye) then I suspect TT will in fact trade down in order to get in that 20-23 round first range with an extra second. Here's how I how like the defense possibly shaking out with a trade down:

DE: Kampman

I agree trade down in the first grab another 2nd round pic.

If we do not get Moss in a trade what you guys think of Rice if there in round two, West Coast WR size ( 6'4) A homerun hitter for Farve. And They should target Jarrett as well i think along with Landry and Okeye. Packers do need that big west coast homerun threat for Favre that will free up Driver and Jennings! So techniclly are new not an @**hole Javon Walker. :roll:

02-12-2007, 09:20 PM
I would be in favour of getting a guy like LaVar, I think he would come at a cheaper price at Thomas or Briggs because of what has happened to him the past few years. I was listening to Adam Schefter on the radio and he said that GB was very interested in him last year and was close to signing him. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see if they made a run for him this year.

When healthy, he's still one of the better OLB's in the game and he could really help our defense.

i dont know if you remember a few years back, but the packers signed brian westbrook(the cornerback not the runningback). he was on the packers preseason roster, but after suffering a achilles injury the previous year was not able to make the roster. some players never come back from this type of injury. i think LaVar is one of those players that is too muscular as dumb as that sounds.

Johnson still hasn't been signed, and he is the most important one to our plans anyway. GB and I talked about a safety. We have Underwood and Manual, and are looking to draft one on the first day. That would just create a glut at the position. If we get Johnson, we succeeded in our FA. TE is our biggest need, every other position can be improved through the draft. Now it is time to do a TT and start picking up backups.

And we'll have Moss. I pretty much want to go Defense in the draft now. First choice is Okoye, then Landry, and if they're gone I would like to do one of those trades.

We need to make a spalsh though b/c we came in with about 25 mil and signing backups doesn't get the job done when you want to make it to the next level. I agree we need to bring in backups but lets try to get somebody taht'll make an impact on more than just Special Teams

We tried in going after Thomas. Other than that there weren't any that we were ever going to target. Hopefully we get Johson, and that would be the biggest move in FA.

Quarterback Brett Favre will travel to Green Bay sometime in the next couple weeks to undergo surgery to remove bone spurs in his left ankle that have been bothering him for several years, said a source familiar with the situation.

Favre has postponed the surgery for at least five years and played through the discomfort, but this year he’s decided to undergo the procedure to give him some relief and perhaps help his mobility. General Manager Ted Thompson confirmed Tuesday that Favre is having the spurs removed this offseason by team physician Pat McKenzie.

“Nobody’s told me exactly when (the surgery) is,” Thompson said. “The plan was to go ahead and have it done sometime, and (Favre) mentioned when I first talked to him he would set that up with Pat, and I don’t have any dates. It wouldn’t surprise me (that they’ve set a date), but I can’t confirm anything.”

The surgery shouldn’t sideline Favre for more than several weeks. Unless there are unexpected complications, he presumably will be ready to participate in the Packers’ post-draft minicamp in early May.

“I wouldn’t think (he’d be out long),” Thompson said. “There’d be some normal down time, but I haven’t gone through that with our medical people yet

I wouldn't mind signing LaVar Arrington.

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=414919

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson has said he's not done in free agency and true to his word, he stuck his toe in the water with former Washington linebacker LaVar Arrington, a three-time Pro Bowl selection.

But Arrington's visit was arranged a week ago before Favre made his most recent comments and it's thought the Packers have had interest in him for a while. Arrington, 27, is in the prime of his career and would give the Packers star power and leadership on a defense lacking in both areas.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2417903

Poston said Green Bay, Jacksonville and Miami all were in the running for the 27-year-old Arrington. But in the end, he said, his client decided that he wanted to play against Washington twice a season and for Tim Lewis, New York's defensive coordinator.


I think he still has a lot left in the tank, he was playing well before getting injured. He has the size to play SSLB (6'3 257) and would not be expected to be an every down player. That's my two cents.

I'w reading some very interesting things on Packersnews.com. People are prepared to never watch the packers again if Randy Moss is apart of the team. That seems a bit extreme, aren't teams supposed to win at whatever cost? The packers haven't won the SB in a while, and they don't give out medals for having the best guys on your team.

My view is that if Brett Favre can play 2 more years and moss is traded here, he won't be the idiot he was in Minn and Oakland. Randy was viewed as a leader there and couldn't handle it, in GB he can just catch TD and leave the leading to brett.

Dre Bly is overrated, would be overpaid if we signed him as a nickel, and isn't the type of player we should be looking for to fill that void. Instead we should look to bring in a project young guy from the 2nd or 3rd round and let him play nickel until Harris or Woodson gets too old and give him a promotion.

i agree. Bly WAS a solid corner but he is now on the downside of his career. With Woodson and Harris as lockdown corners, we could maybe use him in the nickel, but I don't think Bly is looking to play nickel. He wants to be the #1. As a result, he'll want #1 type money (like what Woodson got last year or relatively close). Therefore, I'd like getting a young player to work with that's a heck of alot cheaper than Bly.

I think Matin has some good potential, but I don't see how we are in position to turn down Moss if the offer is right. Also I don't get why people keep bringing up Robinson.

If people don't watch the Pack if we acquired Moss, then good get rid of those fake fans. If the packers traded Favre for Aaron Brooks, I would stil support my team. I wouldn't agree with the decision and Id be calling for TT's head. But we aren't talking that drastic of a personnel move. We are talking Moss who is 6'4" with a 40" vert and blazing speed coming to GB bad attitude and all. With Favre taking it year by year, the Vikes and Lions down and The Bears still questionable with that offense, we have to take a shot. I still say no way do we get him for a 3rd rounder. At least a second rounder. I'm all for it. Now Arrington I'd be more skeptical. His injury history is bad and he's always been overrated. Freak athlete but has he really put up big numbers on the field????

Anyways, just wanted to tell you guys. I picked up the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press today(Mpls. n St. Paul newspapers) and who is all over both of the front sports page?? None other than college coach of the year candidate Bo Ryan. Both papers were all over Bucky's n**ts. Saying "why can't we having winning sports programs like wisconsin?" It felt good to read that living over here in the twin cities. Of course they had to throw in"at least we have the Twins,and the Brewers still suck". Not for long Minnesota haters....not for long.

FS - Nick Collins
SS - *Michael Griffin*
CB - Charles Woodson

to be honest the main one is Edwards i think he would be a great fit here

also Grant could also be like kampman someone who can bring pressure and stop the run

and for Micheal Griffin i think we should move back in the 1st round and up int 2nd round what i like about Griffin he is so fast (4.4 speed)a great run stoper also has some nice hands

Anyways, just wanted to tell you guys. I picked up the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press today(Mpls. n St. Paul newspapers) and who is all over both of the front sports page?? None other than college coach of the year candidate Bo Ryan. Both papers were all over Bucky's n**ts. Saying "why can't we having winning sports programs like wisconsin?" It felt good to read that living over here in the twin cities. Of course they had to throw in"at least we have the Twins,and the Brewers still suck". Not for long Minnesota haters....not for long.

Yeah we definitely have some quality coaches/AD's in a bunch of our programs. I was listening to Jim Rome the other day and he was talking about how Wiconsin gets more out of their athletes in their programs than any other school in the nation.

He went on to talk about how schools like Michigan have far more atheletes in their state etc and they just don't have programs to go with them.

Wisconsin sports are definitely on a high point across the board at the moment :) lets hope we can keep it up.

Back to real life.....

How would you guys feel about getting Rhema McKnight out of Notre Dame in the 4th round? He was one of the most prolific receivers in ND history. I think TT would like him based off the fact that he always drafted according to production in college (AKA Greg Jennings over Chad Jackson last year). I think Rhema would be a good #3 or #4 as he has solid size (6-2, 215). Thoughts?

My "For Now" 4 Round Mock:
1st: Marshawn Lynch- RB- Cal
(assuming he's available and we don't resign Green)
2nd: Zach Miller- TE- Arizona State
(will most likely be available. If not him here we could go after a CB or S)
3rd: Aaron Rouse- S- Virginia Tech
(might be here might not. If not Michael Johnson from Arizona is an option)
4th: Rhema McKnight- WR- Notre Dame
(he most likely be here. Another solid option here is Steve Smith from USC)

Oh sweet forgot about that...
Anyway in response to picking McKnight im cool with that.
Heres my draft
1) Lynch
2) Merriweather (thogh he his a FS right?)
3) Trade this along with Ferguson for Moss, talked to OAk people before and they said they wouldnt mind a 2nd or 3rd for Moss
4) Joe Newton if hes still there
5) Duane Coleman CB Clemson
6) Derek Landri DT Notre Dame
7) Stephen Meyer OT Maryland
7b) Chad Nkang LB Elon

These are who I would want for the first 3 rounds.
1st. I would prefer to trade down, unless Okoye is there
1.Okoye
2.Landry
3.Lynch
2nd
1.Olsen
2.Merriweather
3.Miller
3rd
1. Higgins
2.Top rated DT if we dont get Okoye or top rated CB

I want to trade down and pick up DeMarcus Tyler from NC State, I think he is gonna be a monster at the next level.

Hey Guys, I'm new to the site, but I'm liking what I'm seeing so far--especially this part, where Packer fans can all hang out together. I spend a lot of my time on a rival web site with lots of Packer and Viking fans, and it's just a constant pissing contest between the rivals, and I get really tired of all the baloney, so I came looking for a more friendly site.

So are we all in agreement that we want Cal RB Marshawn Lynch for the Pack's 1st round pick? I know they could also use some defensive help as well, but I think an heir apparent to Ahman is more necessary at this point.

BTW, one thing you'll learn about me very quickly, and it does tend to anger some fans: I absolutely HATE it when fans refer to their team as "we". My feeling is that unless you've pulled on a jock and actually suited up for the team at one point in your life, you should leave the "we" crap alone. IMO, it makes you sound like an enormous homer, and we all know how much we hate homers, right?

Anyway, that's a little bit about me and also my first rant. Hope I didn't anger too many of you. I'm glad to be here.

I'm with you, I tend not to say we, but I don't mind if other people do. But, if you own stock, you could say we. The only time I ever refer to the packers as "we" is during our fantasy offseason that is going on right now. We are being the Packers GM, so it makes sense to use we in this situation.

I really don't want Marshawn Lynch. No need to use a first rounder when we can pick up Gary Russel in the late rounds. I would much rather get Okoye or Landry. With the ZBS you don't need great running backs.

Even if you don't I don't see the whole fuss in people incorporating themselves with the frachise by using we. The way I think about it, you support the team, you buy apperal, and the reason why they are playing is because there is a demand for the sport. Without the fans there would be no football.

GREEN BAY GOING DEFENSE IN FREE AGENCY

We reported recently that the Packers' first target in free agency will be Ravens linebacker/defensive end Adalius Thomas.

We're now hearing that the defensive side of the ball will be the primary, if not exclusive, focus of the team's efforts in free agency.

Last year, quarterback Brett Favre spoke openly about wanting the team to make a free-agent acquisition along the lines of defensive end Reggie White. Though there was no Reggie-type player available last year (and there isn't one available this year), quantity could be the key as the Packers improve their ability to keep other teams off of the scoreboard.

The reason we use this thread is that there are 7 of us, its kinda hard to coordinate otherwise. Not a whole lot is going on, and it actually is quite fun to participate in.

I echo that statement :)

Ok understandable. When you guys are talking fantasy though let everyone know. Don't be like "Oh man we just traded so and so for so and so2. I'm so pumped." Cuz then some of us are looking around on packers websites trying to find out what's going on. Know what I'm sayin??? :shock: :shock: :shock: :wink:

The jsonline article doesn't say anything about us not interested in Moss. It just says nothing has been discussed yet. I'm not saying it's gonna or it won't happen cuz I'm not TT or Al Davis(no really Im not). But teams put up smoke screens a lot in the offseason. as far as Wells, is that fantasy or reality? I don't like all that fantasy garbage on this thread cuz it confuses people. And in my opinion it's dumb. Embrace reality people. Anyways whatever it is. The dude saying Wells is ok is foolish.

GREEN BAY GOING DEFENSE IN FREE AGENCY

We reported recently that the Packers' first target in free agency will be Ravens linebacker/defensive end Adalius Thomas.

We're now hearing that the defensive side of the ball will be the primary, if not exclusive, focus of the team's efforts in free agency.

Last year, quarterback Brett Favre spoke openly about wanting the team to make a free-agent acquisition along the lines of defensive end Reggie White. Though there was no Reggie-type player available last year (and there isn't one available this year), quantity could be the key as the Packers improve their ability to keep other teams off of the scoreboard.

Is this real?

Yea, it's from Pro Football Talk.


As for Wells, you don't cut a player you just gave a 5-year extension. And you certainly don't give a 5-year extension to a player who doesn't deserve it. Especially when the one who gave him the deal is Ted Thompson.

No, what he's saying makes sense but I don't think that's necessary for Wells. That works well if you have an unmotivated guy that slacks off, but that's not the kind of person Wells is.

TE-Second round pick, Miller first, Olsen if he's taken
S-not worried about it. Only place I would have considered it was in the first.
CB-Our next pick is a fourth, and it could be used on a CB
LB-Either a 6th or 7th if at all
KR-I think it was you that I talked to about this. Either Higgins, Robinson, or Breaston. Higgins will be taken in the third, so not a real likely option. Robinson should go from the fourth to the fifth. If he's there at our 5th I want him. Breaston could go anywhere from the 5th to 7th. It's just how much we want to risk it. If we don't get anyone Johnson could be an option, but I would rather get someone through the draft. For KR why not Josh Wilson he fills two needs and could get picked up in the 2nd or 3rd
2nd we need a TE and we don't have a third.

There is enough TEs available that can make big impacts well into the 4th.Wilson fills two needs and no other prospects do that.

I never said anything about taking a TE in the 4th. I said in the second. If you were saying to take Wilson in the 4th there is no way he lasts that long.

I never said that you said we shoul take one in the 4th, I was saying you should take one in the 4th and take Wilson in the 2nd

We are looking address TE in round 2 becuase Olsen and Miller are very good prospects

I'll do the trade forms but if you have a good reason for either post it.

Reasoning:

This is not an option, it is a requirement. To clarify, I want YOUR reasoning, I don't want to hear why it's good for everyone involved. Pretend I work for your organization and you are filling me in on why this is a great deal for you.

I think it is obvious why it would be good for us, so I know basically what I'll put already but if you have something good it could help.

Here's some JAR (Joe Arrigo Rumors) from today:

The Packers plan on making a BIG PUSH for Adalius Thomas. The team feels he can have a major impact as a DE and even play some SLB. Ted Thompson has made him his top priority (as long as the Raven don't Franchise him). Even though he said he like warm weather (on Cold Pizza), money talks and the Packers have alot of it.

I think the Packers have decided to NOT pursue Randy Moss and will upgrade the WR position via the draft. In the end, they would rather risk a pick on a player that is younger and has less baggage. The Raiders asking price also has went up and the packers don't want to pay the price tag (possibly a 1st round pick).

A player the Packers have privately inquired about is Chris Perry (from the Bengals). He has been hurt and could be had for a cheap price (possibly a 4th round pick).

Good move by the Packers. I've been saying all year that an upgrade over Cullen Jenkings would be a very smart move by the pack.

I know a lot of you think he's special, but Thomas is a much better bet and will help legitimize a Packers defense that still has numerous gaps.

I wud love that, young and fresh and would allow us to not take a RB in RD 1, Maybe hold off until RD 4 to draft a RB.

Yea, and Thomas would also get some PT at LB, at which time Jenkins would come in at DE. Jenkins would also rotate at DT. This type of role, imo, is best for both Jenkins and the team.

I'm not banking on Thomas coming to Green Bay, but if he did, the front 7 of this team would be very, very good.

I also predict that if Thomas is signed Packers fans will rejoice and say what an immediate upgrade it is and how they needed another pass-rusher, but if he's not they will all say how Cullen Jenkings is the answer and the D-line is fine and that he wasn't worth the money. Just saying it now before it happens. :wink:

Edit: I think this move would benefit the secondary just as much as the front 7. Nothing helps out a secondary more than a consistant pass-rush.

I'll go on record now as saying Jenkins and KGB would be sufficient for next year, but a couple levels below Thomas and Jenkins. There, I covered both fields.

i want thomas first jenkins second. if we do not acquire moss from the raiders im leaning toward ginn in round 1

I dont want ginn at all. Ginn is pretty similar to greg jennings. If we were going to draft a wr in round 1, I see us going after jarrett because of his unigue build.

Ya his 40 will be crucial. Id rather get lynch anyway but i was just saying that we would go after jarrett more than ginn (assuming there both still there)

Ginn is a burner who can spread the feild with his speed while Jennings is more of a YAC reciver with great hands and decent speed. The only thing i see similar is their height.
