  • I would be absolutely thrilled if we got Casey even as just a special teamer.

      With all due respect, the Matthews bloodline is worth something. You can't write these guys off.
      Casey might be the perfect type of Ted Thompson guy.... a late-bloomer, hard worker, perfect to improve our special teams.

      Even if he doesn't blossom into a stud starting LB, he seems to be a guy that can easily replace a Poppinga or Chillar IMO, down the road. Again, you can't discount that bloodline. It's remarkable.

      The former Brown Clay Matthews was never the most blessed guy talent-wise, but thru hard work, he became like an 18-year player. These guys are unique.

      • I guess I should have put ^that^ in our draft thread. But THIS can go here:
        CONGRATS TO THOR!

        The Sporting News has named Clay Matthews its NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Matthews, in his second season as outside linebacker with the Green Bay Packers, has 13 1/2 sacks, 60 tackles, one interception and two forced fumbles this season.

        Atlanta's Mike Smith and Mike Mularkey were named the coach of the year and coordinator of the year, respectively.

        Tom Brady was the Sporting News' offensive player of the year.

          • Just watching some film here, and this thought occurred to me:
            One of our biggest problems in big games has been Rodgers fumbling the ball away.

            He lost the one in OT to lose the Arizona game.
            He lost the one at the goalline at Atlanta, which proved fatal in a big game.
            He lost one at Philly last week in the playoffs, which almost led to us eventually losing that game.

            We've all gotten pissed off at James Jones for his drops, and his fumbles against the Bears a couple of times. But Rodgers has to make sure he doesn't fumble the ball away.

            We need M-Ice to cough one up to us to make it even, and hopefully it's one of their few times they enter our red zone.

              While I agree, it's worth noting that QBs as a whole fumble more. The ball is hanging out there for anyone to get when they drop back. Not like a WR who should have that **** in a deathgrip.


              When being a fanboi goes too far.

                Absolutely.
                And I am not saying that Rodgers fumbles a ton. It's just that thinking about it watching the game films, it seems that in the 3 biggest games he's played in (or the 2 biggest + the Atlanta one in Nov), he has had a crucial fumble.

                It's time we turn the tables on Matt Ryan.

                • Here in Memphis some of the sports radio guys were saying that the Packers seemed very business like in their game against Philly.

                  After reading Silverstein's practice update on JSOnline today it seems like that's how MM has them looking at these games.

                  MM seems to have the pulse of this team down to the very last player. Doesn't mean they'll win but they sound very confident and focused.

                  • I want to see our gigantic beefy DL crush and punish the Falcons OL, RB, FB, and QB.

                    I like McCarthy's approach and believe in him and the team.

                    My only worries are the refs. And turnovers.
                    Turnovers have a % that is luck, I'd say a good 50% of it is luck.
                    And refs? Don't get me started with the Bears game 1 film or some of the hits Rodgers has taken that weren't flagged but that our D has been flagged for. People say don't worry, those things even out. If so, we should be clear sailing to Dallas.

                    • He was most likely a long shot anyway, but Capers name had been linked(at least mentioned by a few analyst/writers) as a potential candidate for the Broncos job. We now know that is a moot point with Fox getting the job.

                        Yep, good hire by Denver with John Fox.
                        Let's keep staying alive for another week, and two, and three.... and let all those other coaching vacancies be filled up before we're done.

                                Could not have written a better Victory Tour than that script. No way, no how.
                                And to do it missing 1/5th of our starting lineup? That will make those guys deadly hungry next year.
