No. 4 Brett Favre.
http://www.profootballtalk.com/No4Favre.htm

A much more sensible ranking.
and it comes from profootball talk instead of usa today... go figure.

Good list but, Manning was still struggling in the 90's, and I thought LT (Taylor) shouldve been higher up on the list

Thompson is comparing Larry Johnson to Bo Jackson so could he be trying something? I mean if he thinks that high of him and he can get him for a little after waiting it out. Do you guys see anything happing?I dont think he was directly comparing him to Bo Jackson, this is what was said:

Thompson, as is his custom, wouldn't address the Johnson talk directly but wouldn't rule out trading multiple high draft picks for an elite player.


"I'm not trying to be coy, (but) I don't think you can pigeonhole me," Thompson said. "Let's say there was a young, healthy Bo Jackson out there. Would you not give up a bunch of picks to get him? Of course you would."

If he thinks there basically the same player he would make the trade, but that hasnt happened.

Yeah, if there's a superstar out there you have to look at possibility of bringing him in and TT knows it wouldn't come cheap and that the price would be future talent in the form of picks

Packers | J. Jones signed
Thu, 26 Jul 2007 11:46:40 -0700

Adam Caplan, reporting for Scout.com, reports the Green Bay Packers have signed third-round draft choice WR James Jones to a four-year deal. Jones will receive base salaries of $285,000 in 2007, $370,000 in 2008, $460,000 in 2009 and $550,000 in 2010. He will also receive a signing bonus of around $742,000

Thats a nice deal for the Packers for a player that they expect to be their 3rd wideout. Harrell's contract shouldn't be too difficult, but brandon Jackson is looking for that 3 year deal and the Packers want to make it four.

They said Payton's best years came before 82, not after, which is true.

I'd probably take Reggie over Favre too. Reggie is without a doubt top 2-3 at his position all time. While Packers fans would put Favre top 2-3 amongst QB's, that's far from a consensus.

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=638880

"Jones' signing leaves Harrell, the No. 16 pick in the draft, as vice president of finance Andrew Brandt's only challenge left with the first training camp practice set for Saturday. Signings have been slow in the first round overall with only 11 of 32 players under contract as of Thursday night, including only four - Cleveland's Joe Thomas (third), Tampa Bay's Gaines Adams (fourth), Atlanta's Jamaal Anderson (eighth) and Pittsburgh's Lawrence Timmons (15th) - who were selected in front of Harrell.

But getting their other 10 picks signed two days before camp starts put the Packers in good position to get their 11th signed.

The Packers haven't had a first-round holdout of any significance since offensive tackle Ross Verba missed 22 days in 1997. The only first-rounder to miss more than one full-team practice since Brandt became lead negotiator was quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who missed four rookie practices and four full-team practices in 2005."

As long as the packers have Willams, Harell can be brought into the line up slowly. It shouldnt be to much of a problem.

http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/187542 whats up with KGB weight drop?

Looks like it's finally correct. I watch locker room interviews on Packers.com whenever they have new ones. Towards the end of last season Jenkins or Kampman (can't remember which one) was asked about the change to KGB's role and one of them said something like, "Well Kabeer is about 245 pounds so there is definitely some strain on his body when he plays so many snaps. I think it's a good thing from a team perspective to keep us all fresh."

I remember last year there was talk from the coaches/front office that KGB was bulking up. Well that seems to have been swept under the rug cause it looks like that never happened.

KGB has bulked up at various points throughout his career but he's never held the weight.

The Packers have some serious size at DE. Cullen Jenkins is about 290. Kampman is about 270. Montgommery is about 270. Plus all have good height.

The interior D-line is also big. Pickett is massive at about 6' 2" and probably close to 330. Corey Williams is 6' 4" and 310. Justin Harrell is 6' 4" and will likely play at about 315 or higher.

Packers have a biiiiiig defence overall.

Others in the area are thinking of offering there home to the team. Packers said they are willing to listen to any offer preseted them.

However, he said Harrell was listed No. 1 in the base defense and the Williams would be No. 1 in the "sub" or specialty defenses.


So I'd assume that base will be Jenkins-Pickett-Harrell-Kampman, and 3rd down will be KGB-Jenkins-Williams-Kampman.

PACKmanN

Here some info posted by eire1599 on packerchatters

Cornerback Will Blackmon got off to a poor start. In one-on-one drills he got beat badly off the line of scrimmage by Calvin Russell and was lucky the ball was overthrown downfield. On another play, Shaun Bodiford twisted him around and left him in the dust with a hard juke. Later in a seven-on-seven drill, Blackmon dropped an interception.

S Marquand Manuel appeared to be at fault for a coverage breakdown that left WR Robert Ferguson wide open down the right sideline during the special-category period. QB Brett Favre underthrew Ferguson so badly, though, that Ferguson had no chance to come back and make the catch.

Zac Alcorn, who coach Mike McCarthy said Friday had the best hands of anyone on the team, failed to haul in a catchable pass from Brett Favre deep down the middle.

Running back Vernand Morency injured his knee late in the practice. Rookie Brandon Jackson stepped in with the first-team offense in place of Morency during the final team scrimmage in the practice.

Rookie fullback Korey Hall was taken off the field on a cart after sustained an ankle injury. The severity of the injury was not immediately known.

Looks like the injury bug has already bit us.

Good to see both Jones and Rodgers are doing well thus far. IF he gets much more strength on that arm of his, the Pack will have another QB with an absolute cannon to take over in like 30 years.

With Favre gone, backup Aaron Rodgers got more work than usual in the morning and hoped to take full advantage of it. Entering his third season behind Favre and coming off a broken foot, Rodgers put everything he had into his off-season, trimming down from 228 pounds when he first became a Packer to 217 this season.
Well that's good I guess.


"I want to look as attractive as possible this pre-season," said Rodgers. "Every year that passes gets closer to me having an opportunity to start, be it here or somewhere else. The heat's turned up: third-year guy, second year in the offense, it's time to show what I'm all about."

Not sure what to make of that. I'm sure he just wants to play though, no big deal.

He might miss a couple practice, but after 16 years it's not that important that he's there.

Looks like the first team offense is in sync... Favre going to be out, DD out, Morency out. Toss in Humphrey with the broken leg, and things look just peachy. I hate seeing this stuff so early. Looking at backups is fine and all, but they're backups for a reason.

Is the defense looking that much better than the offense?

I also read TT's interview with McGinn. TT wimped out of a number of questions regarding players on other teams. I'd much rather him come out and said, "We looked at Moss and decided he's a coach-killing cancer that we didn't want to deal with on a team this young and a coach that doesn't have the credentials to pimp-slap him if he gets uppity." TT holds back information like a politician.

Well, at least TC has started and there'll be daily information on the players.

Not to mention Thompson has said he intends for the packers to play to win this year, not next year or down the road as part of a rebuilding process. That means Favre plays, because he obviously gives the team the best chance to win.
Although Thompson could have been just giving the fans lip service, either way favre will play. He makes the packers tons of money just because he is who he is.

I think he's doing well. He's getting a lot of reps, which is only going to help him. He's a gifted young man physically. He has the power and the quickness. He has a lot of pop in his body, and you can just see when he's comfortable he's able to take off. He's feeling his way on some things and he's only going to get better.

Tony Moll went from 5th round wasted pick to being a candidate for all-rookie team. He started 10 games and did a yeoman's job. How many other 5th rounders started that many games?

Randy McMichael would have been a good pick-up, more so with the injury to T.H.

Now Morency out for a couple of weeks. RB's on the roster have a great chance to step it up. A veteran RB would have been nice as well, but I'd like to see Herron make the squad so this could be his chance to do it.

"But if I'm never a starter again I'm OK with that, too."Am I at peace? Yeah, I'm at peace," Gbaja-Biamila said. "In spite of my feelings, I think that was a good call by the coaches. Cullen Jenkins is a good run-stuffer. He's a bigger body, and he's also actually quick enough to be a threat on the pass."

Green Bay will not surprise anyone without a breakout season from the O-line and running situation. Not to mention solid contribution from other Rookies. The good news? The news out of TC suggests O-line is looking much improved thus far.

Oh yeah, and would you guess who had another spectacular TC practice this morning? Yep, that third round REACH James Jones. I am very excited about this kid.

Another thing I found interesting was Brandon Jackson has attempted a Passing play during practice the past two days. One a TD to Driver.

Some more good news.... Many are saying Hawk is looking like the best player on the field and even imply he doesn't look like the same guy this year in TC. So far, he's looking like the star we all hoped for.

I still don't like where the Packers chose their first three picks. Maybe all three will be starters and be amazing this year, showing their value, but I think Harrell and Jackson went high given their injury Hx and JJ also could have gone a round or two lower.

I love that JJ looks this good early. He's built like Sharpe, though we'll see how the similarity holds up when it is time for games.

Jackson almost being handed the starting positio with Morency out at least two weeks.

Harrell hasn't amazed, which is no surprise to me, as few DTs are stunners out of the gate. For that matter, few rookies are great out of the gate. Toss in he's been a year away from football and hasn't been eating weights and I am not sure why Corey Williams isn't listed as the starter other than they're trying to play contract games.

Here are some of my observations

- Brett had a really nice pass hitting DD cutting across the middle on the goal line.


- Driver had a beautiful catch over his head on the sidelines for a big gain.


- Shaun Bodiford returned a kickoff past the 50, and Clowney returned it for a TD on back-to back plays.


- Rodgers dumped it off to Jackson while under heavy pressure. Jackson took it for about 20 yards.


- Blackmon picked off a pass by Thompson that was batted at the line.

- Jarrett Busch looks like the frontrunner for nickel back at this point.


- Bodiford looked pretty good returning and receiving.


- The 2nd string 0-line was absolutely horrible.


- Kickoff coverage was terrible.

- On kickoffs, both kickers got it a few yards into the endzone.

GB12
08-04-2007, 09:31 PM
A few quick thoughts.

First team offensive line was flawless, second team only Barbre stood out to me, third wasn't pretty but so what there
Brandon Jackson has some hands. Made some nice catches, we really need someone that can catch out of the backfield for our offensive to be successful. Hopefully he keeps that up.
Feguson is....well Ferguson. Doesn't look any better than we're used to. I can't see him breaking out this year, which probably means he never will. He'll have to battle to stay with the team.
Deshawn Wynn was bad at best. He had plenty of chances, but didn't do anything. Herron should be able to keep him off his back easily.
It was hard to judge the FBs but everyone did alright. We just need someone to sepperate themselves and we'll be fine at that position.
On the defensive side the first team looked very good
Harrell was in the action getting some tackles and knocking down a pass at the line.
All of our linebackers look huge. I thought Hodge was a lineman at first. Not much to talk about here though as it's pretty much a set position.
Jenkins looked like a natural playing DE.
Frank Walker WILL NOT be the nickleback. I wasn't expecting him to before, but I'm extremely confident now. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets cut.
Out of the rest of the CBs Blackmon was the best. He has to be the favorite right now. Dendy was good, but didn't get much of a chance to show what he has.
I'm unimpressed by Rouse he only got in for a few plays, but he made some mistakes.
Collins was fine, didn't see much of Manuel
Bigby made some plays, Culver was decent, but nothing special
Underwood got some time, but the play came his way only like once so there's not much to say
The return game should be improved, we've got options as to who will be the KR.
Crosby was slighty better than Rayner, but tonight meant next to nothing for that battle.

Nitschke-Hawk
08-05-2007, 01:37 PM
My favorite part was when Hawk got in the official's face for the pass interference call. That was easily the most emotion I've seen from him since he's been here. He's definitely way more vocal this year. During the practice on NFL Network McCarthy had him lead the team chant or whatever at the end of practice. Then last night I saw him talking a lot more on the field. I felt that was his only downside was that he wasn't vocal enough. He still will be a leader by example but I like that he is stepping up as a leader and communicator doing these little things will get the rest of the team to respond to him.

1st team offense looked good. Favre was very accurate. I like Clowney as the returner. Jarrett Bush looked really good. I wouldn't be surprised if he is the nickel when the season starts. The broadcasters also said he has been climbing up the CB ranks on the team. Rouse didn't seem to play much, but he did have a big hit in the flat on I think DeShawn Wynn. There were 3 or 4 really good hits.

It's hard to keep up at times because it's a very fast paced situation. Normally I have plenty of time to view the set up before the play begins but during the scrimmage it went much faster so it was harder to make more observations.

GB12

Well he was placed with the second team. With Woodson and Harris not playing, Dendy and Bush were on first team, so that might say something. He was the best last night though. Bush has surprised me that he worked that far up the depth chart. I think he'll get a roster spot because he is very good on kick off and punt coverage. Dendy didn't make any mistakes he just didn't have any big plays either. Now it's not like he could have done anything better, the plays just didn't come his way. The thing that Blackmon has over the rest of the cornerbacks is potential. He has the physical tools and mental capability. Out of all of them Blackmon is the only that I could see eventually being a starter. I like Dendy and hope he sticks around on the Packers for the future. If we were in a win now situation he'd keep his job, but we are still developing in some spots so that gives it to Blackmon.

I couldn't even tell you if Bishop played. If he did he sure didn't do much. Hodge is ready when it comes to run stopping, but his pass coverage is not close to acceptable for NFL competition. I'm much more comfortable with Brady in there like we had last year.

Ruvell made some good catches, WRs were in and out so there's not a whole lot to judge him on

Well each year of 1,200 and up will help him climb higher on the rankings. This time last year Scott had him at 15th in the league or something for example and I'm sure that's changed. He's probably raised up everybody's boards. I don't think he's a top 5 cause he isn't the total package type of receiver but he's a hell of a player. He's one of those guy's that you label "a football player" (you guys know what I mean). Overall attributes will not put him in the top 5 but what's missing from his resume is a huge year statistically. He's had some good ones but nothing that makes you say wow. He said he's shooting for 1,300 yards. If he can get that with double digit TD's and 85 or more receptions he should be in the discussion of breaking into the top 5.

Jolly to start?

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=643070

I think we may see one of the current DTs dealt before preseason is over.

By next week, McKenzie acknowledged that teams will have looked at exhibition tape and some might inquire about the Packers' interest in dealing a defensive tackle.

"I'm sure other teams might come knocking," he said. "But I don't want to let any of those guys go."


Even peter king arises the idea.

With defensive tackle Booger McFarland now likely lost for the year because of a knee injury -- and the odds pretty slim of replacing him with any warm-bodied adult male who could do the job at 60 percent of McFarland's effectiveness -- the Colts might have just suffered the loss that breaks them. Already battered by the loss of five key defensive players in free agency and the retirement of left tackle Tarik Glenn, Indy may have suffered the worst blow of all by losing McFarland.

The Colts don't have the cap money to go get a big-name defensive tackle -- as if one were available at this time of year anyway. Defensive tackle is a commodity everyone in the league looks for, and the good ones are in short supply.

My advice to Colts architect Bill Polian: Scout the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Pittsburgh. Look hard at No. 97 for the Pack, Johnny Jolly. He's a 6-foot-3, 317-pound hulk with movement, who, when I saw him last Friday, was every bit the specimen of first-round pick Justin Harrell. And the Packers might not have a spot for him in their DT rotation. Jolly was a sixth-round pick in 2006, and my guess is the Packers would take a low fourth-rounder for him. That's the kind of fix the Colts need to make now, and the kind Polian is so good at. He's often made chicken salad out of chicken feathers, and Indianapolis needs his Midas touch this month as much as ever.

08-07-2007, 08:12 PM
I'd like to keep them all. It might be hard to find playing time for all these guys, but I'd hate to let one go. DT depth is a good luxury to have. Just look at the example you gave, the Colts had very poor depth and are now screwed. Plus they should be subbed often and kept fresh. Sure getting a 4th for Jolly would be 2 rounds higher than we spent, but I really want to see what this kid can do. None of them are under 27 so at some point someone will be moved, I just don't think now's the time to do it.
