I think it could be a good move if they would do an incentive based contract (I'm sure they would). I have my doubts Goodell will re-instate him this year though.

It is a small risk, big reward type deal and if the Packers are able to pull it off then great

I would love to have Pacman the player. He is one of the better CBs when he is on the field. I don't want him to do something stupid (which history shows that he will) off the field and embarrass our franchise. I feel that if we make this move it might not pan our and be one big headache.

He hasn't gotten in trouble much in Nashville playing for Tennessee. His biggest problem is going back to Atlanta, and the thing in Las Vegas.

How the hell is it a small risk???

04-01-2008, 10:09 AM
I just don't think its worth the risk. We'll draft a CB on the first day anyway so there's not a really a big need for him. I'd much rather use the 5th or 6th round pick it would take to get him on Ikewuongu or someone like that.

His name is Adam Jones, people.

He's not fit within two miles of being associated with the great character of Pac-Man.

Why the hell would the Packers care about the Cowboys??? Unless it is the Titans trying to drive up the offer, which if it is, there is no way to drive it up. He has little to no value until all of these fans seemed to forget the idiotic things that he has done and will continue to do.

Say you trade a 5th round pick for him, and he turns out to be a Pro Bowl caliber player. How many fifth round players are that quality right away??? Very, very few. There's baggage with him, so what. If it doesn't work out then it doesn't work out but to give up a 5th for that potential would be smart.

Image is a huge thing in the NFL and with Brett Favre gone, the Packers need to keep a positive image. Trading for Adam (I'll agree with Geo on this) Jones really tarnishes the name of the Packers. I would personally rather have a team with a good reputation than sign a head case.

The Packers brought in Koren Robinson and he turned his life around so that worked for the them. I don't think bringing in Adam Jones tranishes the franchise...why cause he's one player with a troublesome past??? I don't look at the Bears as a tarnished franchise because of what Tank Johnson did or even the Titans for what Adam Jones has done. There's two organizations that are greatly tarnished in this league and that's the Bengals and Raiders. What's wrong with taking a risk with ONE player when there's no other baggage on the team?

Adam Jones is not even close to the same level as Koren Robinson. And also when the Titans and Bears drafted their respective players, they knew they had some character flaws, but not to this extent. The Packers know full-well who Adam Jones is and by trading for them they will be looked down upon as a team that cares more about winning than keeping a clean, positive image.

yeah I was talking about the Titans.

reports are out that they want TWO 4th rounders for Pacman, but were only offering a 6th or 7th/player. If there is another team going after him we'd be more inclined to increase the offer to what they want.

I actually think it would be a great gamble for the Packers. He would fit their defensive scheme well and if they can get him for a 5th or lower I think they should pull the trigger.

I like how Packers fans just assume that Koren Robinson has turned his life around. Why? Becuase he told you? Because packers.com says so? Becuase he hasn't gotten a DUI going 80 down a busy intersection in a year? What the **** do you actually know of his real life and his moral choices to make any declaration whatsoever? Nothing. You know nothing.

Not to mention that Adam Jones has shown NO contrition whatsoever for what he has done. He still plays the victim card, he still makes jokes of the situation. He's a punk.

But the NFL is full of punk and thugs, so he'll get a job somewhere if not the Packers.

Actually there was a special on FOX during the playoffs that discussed Koren and his past struggle with alochol and the treatment that he went through. He is also on medication, and if he were to drink he would risk his health with having that medication in his system. He has the support of his wife and he also has a child and he wants to become a role model for him and not someone he sees on TV as a bad man and behind bars.

And? He's an alchoholic. Alchoholics risk their health every time they drink. Alchoholics also often have wives and children and want to be better people than they are. They can often function for years at a time before doing something wrong.

I legitimately hope that he does avoid drinking and that he doesn't drive drunk anymore. But I have no idea if that's actually happening and that he will, and as I said before, neither do you. We love to pretend like we actually know people we see on television, but all you can really judge them by is the facts in their life. Koren Robinson turning his life around is not a fact, it's an assumption, based off of very little.

It is unblieveable how negative you can be at times and no this is not a personal shot at you, but just confusion on how you act sometimes. For starters the NFL reinstated him, which says alot, because after all those problems they could've easily said see ya. Ted Thompson, someone who is big on image and bringing in quality people, gave him a chance in Green Bay and that says alot. Now, again, I know you're going to say, but Ted drafted him and all that **** about how he knows him from long ways back. Even Mr. Brett Favre had a discussion and gave him the pass to be on this team. The ultimate team man and the face of this franchise had given him the pass to be on this team; that may speak louder volumes than any of the previous. Koren also sees a doctor regularly where they check for liver enzymes. He has alot riding on this last chance; his life in the NFL, comfort for his wife and children, and his overall health, and I want to believe that he has turned that corner because very rarely in the life are we given that last chance and he's one who has seized that oppurtunity instead of abusing it. Please give the man some credit instead of bashing him in any way possible. Not everything has to be looked at in a negative light. Some people can change and can mature. Each case is independent of itself and in this one I see no reason why not to believe he's making progress because he hasn't shown me anything where he's not.

I'm in academia, we're natural skeptics, I don't take that as an insult at all. But I'll go through this point by point.

-The NFL reinstated him: So what? The NFL resinstates everyone. They would reinstate O.J. Simpson if he could still play. Leonard Little killed someone and he's still in the NFL.

-Ted Thompson is big on image and character and he brought him in, which says a lot: Yes it says that Ted Thompson is a hypocrite. Just like Brad Childress, just like the Rooney's, like every NFL exec that judges moral equivalency by how much you can produce on the football field.

-Brett Favre gave him the pass: Oh wow, Brett Favre? Brett Favre the former drug addict and alchoholic? Now there's a guy I'm going to take my moral authority from. Unless Favre sleeps over with Koren Robinson every night, his opinion isn't worth much, and even still we would have no idea if he was being truthful.

-Koren sees a doctor where they check for liver enzymes: Ok THAT is an argument. That is something that I would actually consider worthwhile evidence. Liver enzymes would likely only occur from heavy alchohol use, which means he could still recreationally drink and drive, but it's something.

-Koren has a lot riding on this chance and I want to believe he is making the best of it: Hey I want to believe that most of my sports heroes are quality people too, but they more often than not are probably not. It's the law of human averages. Walter Payton was an incredibly gregarious and charitable man. He was very nice to me each time we met. Brian Urlacher, on the other hand, seems like a real white trash piece of ****. That doesn't affect the way I feel about him as an NFL player, but as a man I have very little respect for him.

I would put money down that Pacman will not be a Packer. I still am thinking he will never play a regular season down in the NFL again, even if somebody signs him.

GB12
04-01-2008, 03:05 PM
I agree pretty much with what Turtlepower is said.

Also I don't want anything to do with Pacman, we don't need him. Our starting corners are among the best duos in the league and we can get a nickleback and future starter through the draft. I actually hope that the Cowboys do get him, because that's hopefully one less CB off the board before our pick.

04-01-2008, 05:06 PM
It's funny to see people who were once damning PacMan a year ago by saying he doesn't deserve to play in the NFL due to his irresponsibility and thug lifestyle all of the sudden stating that they wouldn't mind their team taking a chance on him since he'd come cheap.

I agree with BF51, and will be glad when the Titans have this headcase off the team. People may think the Titans are being greedy by possibly asking for too much for Pac, but you can say the same thing about every person thinking PacMan "Ima make it rain!" Jones is gonna come to their town and act right and become a Pro Bowl cornerback/returner, despite displaying the opposite his entire career and in more situations than one.

And though a 5th RD or so pick isn't much to gamble with, Roger Goodell has publicly stated that he'll punish teams for signing notable poor character players. Once PacMan finds the closest strip club in his new city, that organization is gonna then realize it wasn't worth it, whether due to SportsCenter's incessant coverage or punishment by the league.

im wondering what the Packers are willing to give up

5th round packers got a better 5th then the cowboys
4th Rnd/Comp Pick they just got, if the cowboys offer there 4th round then what
well packers do pick before the cowboys in the 3rd round but is that to much?
i dont see the packers giving up one of there 2nd round (both before cowboys)

i wonder whats the price

It's a non issue, we are not going to trade for him. This is some BS rumor from PFT, big surprise there. And let's just say for a minute that they are interested, we wouldn't give up more than a 5th. We wouldn't give up a 4th for Randy Moss, it'd be moronic to be willing to give up more for Pacman.

Uh, brahs, anyone care to read it lately? This has been up all day.
Earlier in the day, we posted a non-April Fool’s April 1 report regarding a rumor in last week’s Sporting News that the Green Bay Packers are interested in Titans cornerback Pacman Jones.

The Pack’s possible interest in Pacman became particularly relevant on Monday, in the wake of a report in the Nashville City Paper that one or more teams have joined the Dallas Cowboys in the pursuit of Pacman.

But count the Packers out, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Citing an unnamed source, Silverstein says the the Packers aren’t interested.




I agree with BF that no Packer fan could positively know what Koren is up to. I hate when people say he has turned his life around, it's only been a season since he's been reinstated. Who knows he won't start boozing again? Didn't he do well for a year in MN before getting busted? As for the "academia" part, sure it goes hand in hand with skepticism, but BF you come off to me ( over the internet, so take that for what it's worth) as very opinionated individual, and PF has a good point that you seem more negative than skeptic much of the time. Not attempting to rip on ya, it's just easy to see where PF is coming from.

Well it wont be our comp pick because we can't trade it if thats what you were suggesting, Comp picks are not trade able.

I'd give up a 5th at the most, but I honestly don't want him here, Greenbay would be the best situation as there isn't much going on and not a lot to do, so it'd be harder to get in trouble there, but the guy comes off to me as Arrogant, and just plain dumb, Who goes to a strip club the night before Meeting with the Commish about your activities in Strip CLUBS?????!

I would not touch Pac-Man Jones. Attitude can rub off on people, not only could he turn into a bust but he might let his attitude drag down other players.

I say no to Pac-Man.

As for TT picking up Koren Robinson, I thought that move was a little skeptical at the time, but I think Robinson's case is a little more treatable. And anyone can say all they want about him, but he hasn't done anything wrong yet, and I honestly don't expect him too. But who knows anything can happen I guess. Still I am glad Koren came to his senses or at least it appears so as of now.
