I am not too worried of when they sign. The organization gets players signed, and rarely is there a missed practice. Given all the competition this year, even at DT, a player missing any of TC would be behind his competitors.

My money is on Fergie not being with the team. He hasn't been cleared by medical, and he's got the least amount of time besides Koren in the offense. It remains to be seen if he's even a special teamer like he used to be. Take Fergie out and put Koren in, and I like that group of WRs. James and Clowney not going anywhere as they're this year's draftees, Martin is TT's Euro UDFA find, DD is secure, Jennings is solid. Toss Koren, former first rounder, into the mix and there's been year's when we've had worse.

Hmm NFL.com Thinks Dante Culpeppers Number 1 Ending Spot Is "Green Bay Packers"

1. Green Bay Packers -- The Packers are very familiar with what Culpepper can do, having faced him when he was a member of the NFC North rival Vikings on several occasions. Green Bay also has the salary cap space to make the move, but most importantly, the Packers have the need. Brett Favre is getting closer and closer to retirement, and the team has to find a replacement. Some observers think that player could be Aaron Rodgers, whom Green Bay drafted in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft, but more and more it is becoming obvious the team has little confidence in him. Don't kid yourself -- Favre would have been sent packing two years ago if Rodgers was good enough. And with Favre struggling to the third-worst quarterback rating of his career last year (72.7), that doesn't say much for Rodgers at this point.

Of course, I'm not ready to condemn him to a Tommy Maddox-like career just yet. But it just seems clear that the team isn't entirely sold on him either. Whether Rodgers blossoms or not, it would be a good idea to have some veteran talent on hand to ease the transition when Favre retires. Culpepper would provide that.

Give Culpepper another year to recover from his disastrous knee injury, take the pressure off Aaron Rodgers to perform immediately and give the team added depth for the next several years. It makes sense.

eh, tt cut him 3 years ago along with Wahle and basically left favre unprotected. The time line has relevance. (Im sure thats just another little thing that has annoyed Favre). The pack went 4-12 that year and was there first losing season in at least a decade. So im not really sure what the point of the sarcasm is.

Damn I hate to get into this, but I guess I have to. The packers were 30 MILLION BELOW the salery cap the following year, most in the entire league. To say it wasnt possible is simply rediculous. Havent you heard of a backloaded contract. Its not to say that everyone that was released should have been kept. Wahle and Sharper were probably the only 2, but to say it was impossible is nowhere close to reality. Thompsons strategy is obvious, its lose now hopefully begin to win 4 or 5 years from his hiring date, when his contract will be up. Basically about when the team might be ready (depending in a big way on rodgers success). I personnally dont like the passive strategy, but it is what it is.
I would rather not discuss this, its old.

The reason we had some much cap room was becasue we let those guys go. and no they couldn't backload those contracts because we atually had an option year on Mike Walhe we just couldn't afford it, those guys wouldn't want to sign for a backloaded because that means less signing bonus, which is the garunteed money guys get out of contracts, we couldn't sign them, this is not arguable

With a little bit of finagling we could have signed at least one of them, and it WOULDN'T have put us in cap hell.

yeah we porbably could have signed at least Mike Flanagan or Rivera, but are either of those guys still starting, no, would the packers have had to pay them way more in order to have a lesser signing bonus, yes, would it have been worth it, no, letting sharper and Wahle go isn't even arguable, it had to happen, those guys would have put us in cap hell

Flanagan left just last offseason. We could have easily signed him no questions asked. The reason we let him go was becauuse of Scott Wells. At this point in their careers I would take Wells over Flanagan.

But whatever. Its all about the Thompson plan now and aaron Rodgers. Next year and the following one are crucial, this year is going nowhere its just part of T.T.'s process. I'm just seeing some early similarities between Thompson and the old brewers GM Sal Bando. Bando always would tell the press were going to be better next year under his plan and it was miserable. Bando dismantled the 92' brewers, many of them were let go and had very nice careers (Moliter was going for the batting title and Seitzer the triple crown in 93) while ther replacements performed hideously. It seemed more like blatent lying is what Bando was doing as Bud selig feasted on fan loyalty. Now there is no Selig for the packers, but the team coffers are curently growing nicely and providing some financial stability.
That said we just wont know until the next 2 or 3 seasons are over. We have no choice but to give Thompson the benefit of the doubt, I just hope Thompson doesnt turn out to be another Sal Bando.

Nope, not interested in burnt up vets without great leadership skills. I'd still take a guy like Russell Maryland on the team because he's a champion and was a leader in the locker room. Or I would have last year. I think there's a lot of good, young players that we need to keep on the roster and let them mature. I'm not happy that TT hasn't acquired more proven products, but the guys he's taken could be really good.

Scott giving a C+ to the Packers odd. He complains that there might just be 2-3 starters amongst the group, but then says Harrell, Jackson, Barbre, Rouse, and Crosby all have a chance to win starting jobs. Toss in Clark Harris at #2, along with Wynn being a solid pick, and it comes down to him not liking how high the picks were taken. If the Packers had taken Harrell in the 2nd, Jackson in the 3rd, we'd have an A likely, given what grade he gave Minnie. I'm not all that happy with how high TT took guys like Harrell, JJ, Korey Hall, and Desmond Bishop, but who would he have taken at WR or DT that would have started ahead of the guys on the roster already? I love Rouse in the 3rd and hope he's starting Day One, though I love Bigby's attitude. Maybe there was a guy in the 5th at LB better than Bishop, Pac-10 DPOY, and maybe Hall not a good choice at FB (I like him at LB, given he was WAC DPOY), but these guys have the potential to make the team, fill in where the Packers were weak last year and provide that push to the playoffs. He totally missed the emphasis on special teams this year, which if that had been in order last year, would have yielded a playoff spot.


I hope he does an after TC update on his grades, and can see who made the squad and who didn't.

I just don't see Thompson moving on a CB. He didn't make a move for a CB in the draft so I think it's pretty clear he's content with who's on the roster right now.

Al Harris and Charles Woodson are entrenched as the starters. Will Blackmon, Frank Walker, Patrick Dendy, Jarrett Bush, and others will battle it out for the remaining spots. Between those 4 players I would expect one to be a legitimate nickel cornerback next season. Any of those 4 players would be fine as a dime player. After Harris or Woodson starts to regress, I would expect Thompson to make a move on a top flight cornerback.

Exactly, so why not use next years 2nd rounder on a top flight corner? Maybe TT didn't see any corner worthy of the spot we were picking in. I think it would be a mistake for TT not to even go after him.

I don't think that TT didn't draft a CB because he is necessarily content with our CBs. Their might not have been one he liked at the picks we had. He likes to build through the draft and getting Oliver for a 2nd could be very good value. If TT is high enough on the guy he will go after him. It can be looked at as TT acquiring another draft pick for this year, and we all know he is capable of acquiring a another 2nd round pick next year through trading down.

I think if TT is interested in this guy, I think he will make a push for him.

I'd give a second this year for Oliver. He'd be a pick that along with Harrell and Jackson typifies that TT thinking that if you pick a guy early or coming off an injury you can get a bargain and a player that if healthy and had stayed in school, might have gone much higher.

Oliver at #3 CB this upcoming year, and hopefully he's not as brittle as Blackmon, who's out again with a hip flexor.

Packers linebacker Barnett arrested after disturbance at Appleton nightclub
Gannett Wisconsin Newspapers

APPLETON — Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett was arrested after a disturbance early today at a downtown Appleton tavern, police said.

According to a police statement, Barnett was involved in a physical altercation about 2 a.m. at the nightclub known as Wet, 344 W. College Ave. He was subsequently arrested for battery and was confined to the Outagamie County Jail a few blocks away.

He was released later and appeared this afternoon at Packers teammate Brett Favre’s annual charity softball game, held at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute. He was not immediately available for comment.

The Packers selected Barnett, 26, out of Oregon State in the first round of the 2003 draft. He is in his fifth season with the team.

Police asked that anyone with information about the nightclub incident contact the department at (920) 832-5500.

A league source tells us that the Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper could be eyeballing the Green Bay Packers as his next NFL landing spot.

If it happens, Culpepper would be a candidate to serve as the backup to starter Brett Favre, and could then be the guy to succeed Favre when he retires in 2025.

We're exaggerating. The real number is more like 2015.

Culpepper has primarily been linked to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and there's no indication that the Packers would have an interest in the former Vikings starter. We can't imagine Culpepper wanting to try to fill Favre's shoes, unless Culpepper's motivation is to try to stick it to the Vikes, with whom he had a messy divorce in 2006.

I'd like to see us bring in Culpepper if he was willing to compete for the starting job after Favre retires. He's a much better insurance plan than Ingle Martin and an empty roster spot, but we don't really have the roster room until Favre retires so I don't see it working out.

We have no use for Darius though. Our defense is going to grow together in the next couple years so bringing in a guy for 1-2 years doesn't make sense since we have the position well covered. As it is we are going to have to cut 1 usable safety. I like Manuel's experience and consistency even if he isn't that good, he'll probably be replaced by Rouse or Underwood who have more upside but he is good to keep around for insurance (plus he was hurt a lot of last year and might do better in his 2nd year, so although a lot of Packer fans disagree with me I think he has upside himself as well).

We are going to have to bring in a veteran at some point, this is probably Favre's last year and Rodgers seems pretty shaky. What's wrong with Culpepper? Maybe you should have actually read the rest of my post...

If he is brought in to compete for a starting job he obviously isn't going to cost us much, and pretty much every team has a veteran, not just an Ingle Martin on the roster when transitioning to a young QB. And since we don't need him til next year, like I said, it probably wouldn't happen anyway.

How is Rodgers shaky? He hasn't had his chance. I think Culpepper is pretty shaky since he's only got 1 good knee. Culpepper won't ever be the same. Most of his big plays came as a result of the defense having to protect his scrambling and him being a lot more mobile than he is now, and he had Randy Moss in his prime.

Now I'm not trying to compare Favre to Rodgers, but Favre struggled in his first couple years as well. I remember seeing something where Holmgren was really close to benching Favre and starting Brunell cause of his poor play. But Holmgren stuck with him and I guess he turned out alright. I say we should stick with Aaron Rodgers, and take our chances.

The problem with Rodgers is that he has not shown more ability that mangaing a game. He doesn't make spectacular throws or avoid pressure that well. He will be an average QB in this league, and many Packers' fan will expect more from someone who replaces Favre. Rodgers will not start more than 2 years here and that is the truth. I hope he has success and is a QB for a long time but he just doesn't have that thing about him that sets him above other average QBs.

I've been trying to say exactly what you are - he hasn't played a game yet. Thus, it would be a good idea to have other options on the roster besides Ingle Martin.

It's not that I'm calling Rodgers a bust but rather reminding everyone that we shouldn't be depending on a guy that hasn't done anything besides be a first round pick, one that plummeted draft day might I add.

We haven't seen NEARLY enough of Rodgers to make that determination. From a skillset standpoint, he has all the tools. He has a strong arm with good accuracy. He is mobile and can make plays outside of the pocket. He's smart and can digest a playbook. Will he be a good QB? Who knows. We do know that he'll be the next starting QB in Green Bay and he'll be given at least a couple years to prove himself. People saying anything else are just making baseless speculations.

As for acquiring Culpper, I don't see the point. Favre, Rodgers, and Martin is a suitable QB unit for this season. Once Favre retires, a veteran will be brought in but not to start. Cross that hurdle when it comes though.

Not like Aaron is stepping in games when he gets a chance and is playing like Matt Hasselbeck did when he was in Green Bay. When Matt was here people knew that if Favre went down they had a guy that was fully capable of getting the job done. With Aaron there isn't that security and he has not given Packers fan a reason to believe he can do it either.

Any judgement you're making now is beyond premature.Without question its premature to pass any judgement on Rodgers good or bad, however packer fans should brace themselves for a quarterback search once Favre retires reguardless. Based on percentages its very hard to find a starting calliber quarterback at first attempt in the nfl. Ron Wolf had a rare and uncanny talent for finding QBs and the packers have been blessed by that talent during his days as gm. I kinda have the feeling Rodgers wont be the answer but it certainly isnt based on much (just that hasselbeak looked extremely good in preseason games and I havent seen that from Rodgers yet), but im glad we have him. He has had a great chance to sit back and learn the last few years which is more than many great prospects have had. That is going to give him an edge to succeed.

Lit it up????? Ok???? He had some decent games in the preseason but the stats can be misleading becuase Greg Jennings made big plays in the preseason and padded those stats. His most impressive game was against a Chargers' team that secondary absolutely sucked going into the preseason and he managed to throw a pick so settle down before you say he lit it up.

That's just garbage obviously put out by an Inssider correspondent from Chicago. Jennings was very solid as a rookie, AND he was a rookie in the second round from a small school. What first rounders were better than him? Especially prior to the injury? DD has posted 1200 yards a season and gets triple teamed. What would be nice is if Jennings is healthy, Koren Robinson comes back, James Jones and David Clowney are a little bit better than average rookies and Clark Harris is closer to Chmura than he is to David Martin in catching ability. DD wouldn't see press coverage at the line, with a LB in the middle and a safety over the top than! How is that over-rated again?

It really bothers me when people start talking like Rodgers is gonna be a bust and hasn't played well. I just don't know what people are basing this off, seeing as how he has gotten very little playing time. Rodgers replaces Favre once he retires and get 1-2 seasons before we give up. I understand the idea of bringing in a vet as backup for Rodgers, but we don't need one yet.

Kyle Boller showed a little bit last year in stints that he played in while McNair was a bit banged up. Ironically enough he's another one Tedford's products that hasn't translated well to the NFL, and with Aaron he could follow those same steps but hopefully not.

I wonder how much this statement has to do with the lack of action in free agency from the packers.

"Weyers said the organization added $10 million to its Team Preservation Fund, which now totals $125.5 million. In previous years the Packers have said they'd like to have a year's worth of player-cost and team-operating expenses on reserve. That would be about $137 million, currently, Weyers said. "
"I'm not sure one year is adequate," he said.
Of concern is a provision in the current collective bargaining agreement that allows either side to re-open the agreement in 2008. Failure to reach a new agreement soon thereafter could lead to one or more years without player-salary caps. The Packers could probably weather a year of that, but long-term or permanent removal of salary caps could be catastrophic. Team representatives point out at every opportunity that the organization does not have a deep-pockets owner and that the salary cap is a key component in the Packers remaining competitive in the NFL.

I just found this on packer chatters.

Koonce just did an interview on 1250 wssp here in Milwaukee, and as the interview was closing he said that FA isn't over yet for the Packers. The hosts questioned him about this and asked if it would be a big time player. Koonce replied that he did some checking before he left (the Packer front office) for Marquette, and he expects a big time player to become a Packer. The hosts questioned him about who it was, but he wouldn't give in. As he was hanging up they asked whether it was offense or defense, and he answered offense.


Eh, I dont think Koonce seems like a very reliable source of information. They have about 4 pages of people throwing names out there on packer chatters. Sounds like a lot of bull, but its kinda fun looking at all the talk.

As for Corey Williams, I don't see a need to move him. He wants to be here and we just don't know what we have with Harrell yet.

Also, everyone makes it seem like we have no TEs. Franks had an injury plagued season in which we probably held him out more so because we didn't want to rush him back in a 4-12 season. Then last year he comes in a bit rusty and wasn't used alot in the passing game. So when he got his opportunites he looked rusty. David Martin couldn't stay healthy while Donald Lee is solid. I guess I just don't see the need to go out and trade a Corey Williams for a TE that comes around every draft year like Klopfenstein and Troupe.

Thats not true at all. I remember reading an article after the draft that said that Corey was a bit suprised that the Packers drafted Harrell but he said he still wanted to sign long term and remain a member of the Packers. He missed a few days of the OTA's because of something reguarding a family member's health. He didn't skip all of them. In fact, here it is:

Defensive tackle Corey Williams hasn't been at the Packers' voluntary organized team activities practices this week because he is in Arkansas with one of his sisters, who had a stroke over the weekend.

I'm sorry to say, but I just don't anything happening. There really isn't anyone out there that I can see us trading for or anyone that we would trade for that matter. We also know TT isn't going to trade draft picks.

Larry Johnson - If we wanted him we would have traded for him in April. Remember those rumors of our #16 for him? Plus we don't really need him with our zone blocking scheme.

Daunte Culpepper - Why trade for a player who is going to be released?

PFT.com says that Corey Dillion might be an option. Again, what for? We have a stable of young RBs with alot more potential.

Say if it isn't offense, the only other player would possibly be Asante Samuel of which I would welcome a trade but I would have to ask at what cost? I don't want to give up a 1st rounder for him. Maybe a package of our 2nd, KGB (whom they can use as a pass rushing LB), Franks, maybe Hodge, and/or Manuel.

But I don't really see them wanting any of those guys....

He wouldn't be able to consider playing until '08 though due to his motorcycle accident so it's really worthless to talk about right now

Problem is Packers already have a reasonable amount of depth at LB...

SLB: Poppinga, Bishop
MLB: Barnett, Hodge
WLB: Hawk, White

Those are all young players and if Arrington is brought in and makes the team that means the Packers get rid of a young defender to add an older guy that won't be around much longer and will likely rarely touch the field.

He had something happen at his club involving alcohol last year or 2 years ago. That and this one is very minor, no suspension will be coming.

I don't believe he will be suspended but I feel that a fine should be issued to serve as a warning to him. He recently just had a kid, these kind of arrests should happen from new dad.

That was the rumor from PFT.com

To me, all this is 100% competely false talk that's going on. I don't see us bringing anyone in.

Lets say that we do finish with a 7-9 or 6-10 record and TT gets fired by the new CEO who becomes the next gm for the packers?

He won't get fired.

The thing that I wish the majority of Packers fans would realize is that we were spoiled by the 12-15 years of winning in the Wolf/Favre era. We expected to win the division ever year and make the playoffs but when Sherman was handed the GM duties he gradually depleted the team.

TT came in here and fixed our cap problems along with restocking the depth back to the team. I think its unreasonalbe to expect a 2 year low and then to immediately become contenders again. Its a process and it takes time.

I for one like the direction of the team. We aren't spending alot of money to get older veterans like Marco Rivera, Grady Jackson, or Ahman Green around. Instead we are signing our key guys long term like Nick Barnett, Aaron Kampman, Cullen Jenkins, Donald Driver, and Al Harris.

Free agents that we picked up:
Ryan Pickett - Was what we expected. A big NT that can clog up the middle.

Charles Woodson - We basically needed to spend the money on him but it
was worth it so far. Had a career year.

Marquand Manuel - People don't realize that he has a cheap salary. Lets give him another chance but we can easily cut ties if we choose too. If not we have a cheap backup.

Adrian Klemm/Earl Little/Arturo Freeman - They were gap players basically aside from Klemm. In the end though, Klemm didn't work out but with us running the zone blocking scheme now it's probably best that it didn't.

I guess what I'm trying to get at is that as fans, we can't expect the world of TT. We can't expect him to go out and sign top FAs or make a trade for Randy Moss. That's simply not his plan. Stick to building through the draft, building up our defense, and bringing in FAs only when we need too. Trust me, it will work out in the end and the future of the team will be benifit from it greatly.

Lets say that we do finish with a 7-9 or 6-10 record and TT gets fired by the new CEO who becomes the next gm for the packers? I really dont have any idea who would replace him. That decision depends on who would be available after at least 2 more seasons. I think Thompson will get at least 1 more year after this to prove himself. If the direction doesnt change by the end of his contract he will have wasted the last 3 years of Favres career with nothing to show for it but a dismal record and he will be gone. This year will be nothing but a practice year for the inexperienced young team and will have been Thompsons 3rd season,(8 wins tops mostly on Favres back) the following season will be crucial for Thompson to get this team in the playoffs or Harlans successor will be preesured to do something. That might be hard to do, the team will take a big step backward when Favre retires. T.T. will not be given more than 5 years to bring a team to the playoffs and shouldnt be. That type of management is for Detroit. Time will tell, Thompson obviously has a plan and he is betting his career on it. Unfortunately for him hes betting against the most durable quarterback the nfl has ever seen instead of betting on him, because he isnt planning on getting to the playoffs till Favre is long gone aparently.
That is going to take a very strong defense and good running game which is the direction he seems to have chosen for team. Hopefully the zone blocking run game works.

You can't build the team just to suit Favre. He is only out to break all the major passing records now. Fans may not like TT because he is building for the future but natuarally people are going to be mad not seeing "the legend" Favre have success. When we are a consistantly competitive team in 2-3 years you'll come to realize that TT made the right decisions.

I'd be surprised if they fired TT that quick. Isn't it typical for a GM to get at least 6-7 years before people start questioning him? Millen got an extension a year or two ago when the Lions were abysmal.
