Brandon Jackson seems to be running like hes afraid of something outhere...he needs to hit the holes much quicker than that. C. White looked gret against the scrubs though...

Passing game will be fine, it even hs the potential to be awsome with 3 sure handed receivers but the running game...

My god, the running game was awful tonight. Also, the backup OL couldn't protect A-Rod to save his life. Fortunately, the defense was solid, Barnett in particular. I think Bishop is the clear favorite to be the backup MLB, now.

It was a little bit of the OL not giving Aaron enough time and on some plays Aaron holding on to the ball too long and taking a sack.

The defense really pulled back on the aggressiveness (blitzing) in this game

I guess they're thinking if teams wanna game plan towards their best stuff they'll have to go back to the Seattle game, if they even consider it.

Judging by the defensive players reaction post game they just wanted to work on precision and execution instead of trying exotic plays like the week before. It's good to see that the first team defense can be successful during the simple defense and letting their skills take over, like Barnett kept doing, and they also can switch it up and get after the opposition with aggressiveness.

Did anybody else notice the first starters out were Hawk and Barnett?? They kept Woodson and Harris in there, and I think the whole D line. I'm not upset or anything, but I was surprised by it. It was a curveball.

Packers 'dodged one' with Driver's injury

Wide receiver Donald Driver's foot injury doesn't appear to be serious and he is expected to play for the Green Bay Packers Sept. 9 in their regular-season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"That's what we think will probably happen," Packers general manager Ted Thompson said today. "Pat (team physician Patrick McKenzie) thinks we dodged one. He said everything looks good. We'll do some additional scans just to make certain."

Driver, the team's best player the last two seasons, suffered a right foot sprain late in the second quarter last night in the Packers' 21-13 loss to Jacksonville at Lambeau Field.

He was driven from the field on a motorized cart and was unavailable to reporters after the game and today.

1st off thank god for the Driver news.

2nd- none of the cuts were a surprise and im happy with the cuts because those guys just werent doing anything, anyways we have 76 currently because Carl-Johan Bjork who was the 77th player was put on the practice squad so he doesnt count againist the number. That means 1 more person has to be cut before Tuesday when we have to be down to 75!

anyways I only want to carry 2 QB's its Brett Favre the Iron Man what is there to worry about.

I think it is not likely he is going to make it but maybe.

at DE we have

Kampman
KGB
Jenkins
Hunter
Montgomery
Birdine

and at DT we have

Pickett
Williams
Harrell
Cole
Jolly
Muir

now Kampman, KGB, Jenkins thats 3 and we are probably going to be carrying alot of DT Pickett, Harrell, Williams, Cole, Jolly maybe all of them and Muir gets cut. Thats 8 spots for D-Line and usually you carry 7 or 8. Williams has been playing at DE a little so he can do both like Jenkins. Montgomery is out 4-6 weeks with some knee surgery he had. I just really dont think he is making it.

In my list of 53 players to make the team I chose hunter to make it over birdine. I was kinda in a hurry when I threw my list together but I made a small bet with a co-worker. Any way, Is birdine more likely to make the team than hunter? It seams to appear that way from what Ive read in the posts today. Also, we both picked Hodge to be cut (which I thought was interesting , but a gamble), but I picked Rory Johnson to make the team and he stuck with 5 linebackers. 3 other names he has on his list that I dont are Spencer Havner, Frank Walker and Corey White. Opinions anyone?

I would not doubt that the Packers keep 9 DTs. I like them for 6 LBs, with Desmond Bishop the #4 LB, perhaps knocking out Hodge (IR due to patellar tendinitis?). Havner has been nice and White has had a much better year this year than last in games, not just on teams. There's a lot of roster competition this year, far more so than last year.

Nitschke-Hawk
08-27-2007, 01:37 PM
Those aren't true depth charts at all and haven't changed since the start of camp as far as I know. The most obvious thing is Harrell # 2 DT and Williams # 5. Those are obviously not correct. The right answer is the opposite.

Ive been hearing that we are trying to trade Colin Cole and Dave Rayner. Possible teams interested are Dallas, Giants and Falcons. Take it with a grain of salt at this time though.

According to a person familiar with the situation, GM Ted Thompson is looking to trade one of his young kickers and a defensive tackle between now and when final cuts are due on Saturday afternoon. The players being used as bait are believed to be Dave Rayner and Colin Cole. “Thompson thinks that those guys are simply too good to just release, so he’s working hard to get something done,” said the source. “If he can’t, it wouldn’t surprise me if he decides to keep both players around - even if it means carrying two kickers and six tackles.”

I'd like to trade Rayner and keep Cole. Rayner would likely only draw a 7th rounder if anything, but it's worth a try. This part also doesn't make sense “If he can’t, it wouldn’t surprise me if he decides to keep both players around - even if it means carrying two kickers and six tackles.” Cole would only be the 5th DT. I really like the DT depth that we have and would like to keep it that way. I guess I can see where it's coming from since getting all 5 decent playing time could be hard. I believe Thompson likes the depth as much as I do though so I wouldn't count on a trade happening there.

Brandon Jackson is suffering from a concussion. Got the info from Kffl.com, no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

johbur
08-27-2007, 11:37 PM
Well, seeing as how Harrell is the 6th tackle, this looks like TT's first two rounds aren't up to the task this year. Jackson will hopefully come back from his concussion, if that's what he has, and play but I worry about the new NFL guidelines on concussions. Having Greg Olsen in R1 would have made this a great draft for the offense, considering Jackson and Jone in 2 and 3. Corey Williams and Cole are solid, toss in Pickett and what was the problem? Oh, and the JSOnline has Johnny Jolly graded as the best DT in 1-on-1;s and he could be starting this season. Daniel Muir has been better than Harrell for that matter.

Picking a TE wouldn't have solved the RB situation the team is in now, but either did taking an injured DT or an injured RB. TT's picks from 3+ have the potential to be as good as last year's draft. It's just have been nice if TT would have picked a guys in R1 and R2 without the injury Hx.

The Green Bay Packers placed fullback Ryan Powdrell on injured reserve with a knee injury. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, made the announcement Monday.

Originally signed as a non-drafted free agent from Southern California, Powdrell appeared in two preseason games.

08-29-2007, 04:10 PM
I've read that if we put a QB on the practice squad we'll bring Ingel Martin back and forget about Thompson. Thompson got his chance and blew it, I don't think he has any future with the Packers. Also Miree is a possible cut and I'd say there's a good chance he'd end up on the PS. Here are some possibilities:

Ingel Martin
Deshawn Wynn
Brandan Miree
Tramon Williams
Clark Harris/Zac Alcorn
David Clowney
Shaun Bodiford
Corey White
Daniel Muir
Larry Birdine

You really can't pick out exactly who's going to be on it until the final 53 man roster comes out.

He dropped 2 easy passes, and was unproductive running the ball. He did have one very nice run to pick up a 1st on 3rd and nine, where he showed some potential, but that was all. Unless he did very well in the 3rd he should be cut, but I don't think he was even playing then.

Less than 18 hours until final cuts, so here it goes.

QB - Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers
----Favre is the unquestioned starter, Rodgers is the future. In our situation there is no need for a third. And really when you think about it there is no advantage in keeping your third QB on the active roster than on the practice squad.

RB - Brandon Jackson, Vernand Morency, Noah Herron, Deshawn Wynn
----With the injury to Morency, Jackson appears to be the starter. Either way those two will split carries. Then Herron is the clear choice for the third spot in my opinion. Wynn has been very unimpressive but he does have the physical tools which might just keep him on the team.

FB - Korey Hall, Brandon Miree
----Coaches made it pretty obvious that they like Hall more than Miree. However Miree has a year of experience in Green Bay and Hall hasn't played FB since highschool. While it's not ideal to have to keep 2 FBs it might be the best option.

WR - Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, James Jones, Ruvell Martin, Carlyle Holliday
----I think we only go with 5 though it is definitely a possibility that it could be 6. Driver as our best offensive player is obviously first. Then Jennings keeps his number 2 role from last year. With an outstanding preseason James Jones has more than wrapped up third. Martin and Holliday round out the reciecers.

TE - Bubba Franks, Donald Lee, Zac Alcorn
----Bubba Franks has looked like his old self in the preseason. Lee hasn't been spectacular, but decent none the less. Zac Alcorn only makes the team by default. No one behind Franks and Lee really deserve a roster spot, but having at least 3 tight ends is a must.

OL - Chad Clifton, Darryn Colledge, Scott Wells, Jason Spitz, Mark Tauscher, Tony Moll, Allen Barbre, Junius Coston
----I think my choices are self explainatory so I'll just say why I only chose to keep 8. Our line is very versital. Colledge can play guard and tackle, Spitz can play guard and center, Moll and Barbre can play guard and tackle. We are prepared if someone goes down at any position. We don't need to keep a lineman behind each of our starters.

DE - Aaron Kampman, Cullen Jenkins, Muhammed-Kabeer Olarewaju Gbaja-Biamila, Mike Montgomery, Larry Birdine
----Kampman is a top tier defensive end in this league. Jenkins ended the year strong, but still hasn't reached his potential. KGB should be more effective than last year as he goes back to being just a pass rush specialist. Mike Montgomery will make the team despite being injured. Keeping 6 is too much, even 5 is pushing it. That leaves Jason Hunter and Larry Birdine. I choose to go with Birdine. I don't know what it is but there's just something about him. He has a no quit mentality.

DT - Ryan Pickett, Corey Williams, Johnny Jolly, Colin Cole, Justin Harrell, Daniel Muir
----Pickett is still solid, Williams is as well. Johnny Jolly has climbed way up the depth chart from barely any playing time to possibly starting. Colin Cole probably won't repeat his 2006 year, but will be solid in the rotation. Harrell hasn't had the impact that first round picks usually do, but it was to be expected that he'd need time to fully recover. Muir joins an already very crowded position, but I don't think we can just let this guy walk. I really love the depth we have at this postion. I feel that we could throw any combination of the two on the field and be effective.

LB - AJ Hawk, Nick Barnett, Brady Poppinga, Desmond Bishop, Tracey White, Rory Johnson
----Hodge would make it 6, but he looks to be put on IR. Bishop takes over Hodge's spot and might have even if he wasn't injured. White is a spectacular special team and if nothing else will be a contributer there. Rory Johnson gets a spot due to Hodge. He gets kept purely based on potential.

CB - Al Harris, Charles Woodson, Jarrett Bush, Will Blackmon, Patrick Dendy
----Bush has taken the nickelback job and ran with it. Blackmon or Dendy will take the rarely used dimeback, I'd say Blackmon gets it at least to start the season. Frank Walker didn't show me that he deserved a spot.

S - Nick Collins, Atari Bigby, Charlie Peprah, Aaron Rouse
----Bigby will step right in week one and we'll see what he really has against the Eagles. Peprah was less than decent to start but I've liked what I saw the past couple weeks. I still really don't like Rouse but as a first day pick he's not going anywhere.

Specialists - Mason Crosby, John Ryan, Rob Davis
----I see Crosby edging out Rayner. He has been more accurate and has just as strong a leg. No one's taking Ryan's or Davis' job

Dallas runs a 3-4 so they probably aren't interested in our tackles.

Thompson and McCarthy have said that they want to keep the best 53. Muir has been better than other options for those final spots. I know that 11 DL is excessive but I don't think that spot could be better spent.

I expect Clowney to be signed to the practice squad. He is not ready to contribute in an NFL game as a reciever and didn't win the return job. A year on the PS should do good for him. Basically like being redshirted and hopefully he can bulk up a bit in the offseason.

They have Jason Ferguson starting at NT though which is kind of suprising to me, as he's not the prototypical 330+ pound NT you usually see clogging up a 3-4. I haven't seen much of him so i can't say anything about his skill set(perhaps a Dallas and/or Jets fan could shed some light), so perhaps this could bode well for them going after our large bodied buddy from Iowa, Colin Cole?

I just feel that it's not enough and too late. He did go from no chance to on the bubble though. I could see him make it, but I hope it's not instead of the other guys I listed. That's a situation that might take out one of the DL.

No, they're 4-3 DTs. Colin Cole might be able to pull it off but wouldn't be too effective there even if he could. I can't see Dallas having any interest in them. The Colts are real thin at DT so if a trade happens that's probably most likely.

Why did the Packers trade a future draft choice to the Giants for Ryan Grant? Grant would have been cut anyway and he's not exactly an upgrade over any of the guys they have right now. Also I'm shocked that they cut Paul Thompson who I thought did a great job this preseason

Yeah, I don't understand the Grant trade myself. It's sounding like it was a 7th rounder so not a huge deal. As for Thompson he looked very good the first game and then alright the second which is why he outlasted Ingel Martin. The third preseason game he absolutely blew any chance he had. I was fully expecting the cut.

I'm gonna miss Dendy. He stepped up and saved us in the secondary last year. He was soooo much better than Carroll played towards the end. Just a great person too. Say PAT DENDY loudly with a southern accent and you'll miss him too, lol. A great example of what hard work can do for the NFL career. This guy made himself into an NFL player. I believe he had one of the pick sixes in the 2nd game against the Bears last year, I know he had the INT just can't remember if it was a TD. Nick Collins had the other.

I also thought Brandon Miree was in our plans. I thought he was still gonna start. But I guess they think very highly of Korey Hall. Which is another camp surprise I wrote about on here. I don't know how he turned into a Full Back this fast after playing linebacker in College. I mean look at Brady Poppinga. He played Defensive End until his Senior year. Switched to Linebacker, and THEN got drafted to the NFL. After two seasons being on a roster he developed himself into a solid player.

If the Packers cut Grant before a certain time he will not cost them a draft pick. He will simply be released..... If they dont decide to claim anyone else off the waiver wire then he will cost them a draft pick

The conditions for the trade were undisclosed, but most such deals specify the player must remain on the new team's roster for at least several games for the trading team to receive the pick. In this case, the pick probably is a seventh-rounder.


They no doubt looked hard at available running backs Saturday night — they have until 11 a.m. today to make any waiver claims —

Pittman wouldn't hurt. At this point, the pack needs all the help they can get in the backfield. this season is going to hinge on the RB situation and if they can get any production out of it. Brett is going to throw 60+ times in alot of games this season in order to generate enough offense.

Crosby was kept, not really surprised, hope he can handle the weather in december when kicking the ball will be like kicking a brick, but I'm excited to see him with the team.

I'm also really excited about this defense, it seems like it's gonna be stout but they have some TOUGH games against some pretty damn good teams. Chargers, Broncos and even the rams in STL. The pack should be 2-2 at the least going into the first bear game maybe even 3-1 depending on the Eagle game. But their 2nd half is gonna be rough, in a 5 week span, they are on the road for 4, it will be interesting to see what happens with Dallas.

Overall i'm ready for this season to begin so we can see what kind of team we have here.

It doesn't really work like that. We'd have to cut somebody from the active roster in order to bring in a player with no experience in our defense. Don't count on it...

Antonio Pittman is an interesting option. If they can get him off waivers, and they like him better, they could dump Ryan Grant who they just traded for. Mike Bell is another name that's being floated out there as a possible target for GB.

The Green Bay Packers claimed fullback John Kuhn on waivers, placed running back Noah Herron on injured reserve and signed seven players to the practice squad today.

General Manager Ted Thompson announced the moves at an afternoon news conference

Kuhn, a second-year pro from Shippensburg (Pa.), was claimed on waivers from Pittsburgh. He played nine games with the Steelers in 2006 and spent the 2005 season on the team’s practice squad.

He would look a lot better if he were a TE or a SS. So far, has been a wasted pick for 2007, but if he keeps progressing with his health and conditioning, could be a guy that takes off for 2008. Johnny Jolly slipped due to injury and looks really good this year after taking 2006 off for the most part. I would have liked Harrell a lot more in the later rounds, but supposedly he was going in the early twenties. Sad that we're so stocked at DT and could have used a Greg Olsen or a SS, though Bigby has looked pretty good.

Haynos and Cottam are two guys to watch. At 6-8 they have a great advantage in the redzone.

That surprises me.



And on the mock, no way do I think Dixon falls that far. His pure athleticism makes him go higher. I'm not a fan of Chauncey Washington either. I'd rather take a guy like Mike Hart instead of him.
I think chancey could be a good dark horse pick
Dixon could very well fall that far
And i doubt Hart becomes a mid to late 3rd rounder

I was glancing over Scott's NFL player rankings, and he doesn't have Aaron Kampman in his top 10 DE rankings.

A lot of Scott's rankings are pretty bad quite frankly. Mike Nolan is a top 10 NFL coach but Lovie Smith isn't? Umm....

While I'll admit I haven't paid attention to many college cornerbacks for this year's class I like Malcolm Jenkins. A big corner, and I like Ohio State DB's. Not sure on his coverage style but I figure he's a physical man to man type that would really fit our defense.

Did u guys happen to see who are captins were?From Packers.com

This season, the Packers are maintaining a long-standing tradition of appointing weekly captains. The Packers select one player on offense, one on defense and one on special teams to serve as the team's three captains for a given game, and those three players take the field for the opening coin toss.

This week, the captains will be center Scott Wells on offense, Kampman on defense, and Jarrett Bush on special teams.
