  • Yeah, I about lost it when Blackistone was talking up the Giants. Sure they have played alot better but please. I'll take brett over eli and our defense over theres. They might have a better front 7 (by a hair) but our secondary is better. Please Kevin, FAVRE'S ARM WILL TIRE OUT IN DECEMBER, what a d-bag.

    As for Wynn, this means Brandon needs to step-up and prove he was worth a second round pick. Brandon really struggled early in the season, but so did everyone else at the RB position, i would like to see him and grant split carries in KC. Also, what about playing Rouse for a week instead of Bigby?

    I also have a draft question, what does everyone think of the TE out of USC? (forgot his name) he might go higher then were the packers pick but i wouldn't mind adding an solid TE. Although Donald Lee has had a very good year. I still think that a CB in the first day is a must. it's too bad that there are no solid S prospects, cause we could use one too.

    • Fred Davis is the guy
      Also our front seven beats theres. They might have the best DE duo, but we've got a top 5 DE, a great pass rusher and tremndous depth

      • All the Giants have on defense is a nasty pass rush and some really nice blitzes. And defensively we win just about every matchup player vs player every single week. Plus we already beat them by 22. If we played again it would be closer. But I think we'd win 6 or 7 times outta 10 in New York.

          3. Brandon Jackson
          2 questions.

          1. Grant and fumbles. Any history? He had the one at MN. Anyone know how he did in college and at Giants training camp?

          2. Is he just better suited for this blocking scheme than the others? I know the Broncos suck at run D but every time I've seen him run, it has been a good powerful run.

          He claimed 4.4 speed at training camp in NY after being a slow 4.6 in his workout.

          • Some random food for thought:

            ESPN's Braintrust Picks for the Pack

            Hoge; 4-3
            Wickersham; 3-4
            Schlereth; 3-4
            Allen; 3-4
            Accuscore; 3-4
            Jaworski; 2-4 (doesn't pick MNF game)
            Salisbury; 2-5
            Golic; 1-6
            Chad Mortenson; 1-6

            TOTAL: 22-40 (.367)

            Lesson: flipping a coin gives you a much better prediction of a winner in a Packers game than does listening to ESPN's "braintrust."

              I'm interested to see who thought Denver would win. I mean i know the packers couldn't run the ball up until that game but come on, the packers were coming off of a bye, everything fell in place for them to win. Picking games in general is a crap shoot. 4 out of 5 of the writers on Packersnews.com picked the Broncos to win, so again, picking games is mostly just a coin-flip

              • Mile High ratings

                The Packers at Denver Broncos "Monday Night Football" game was the highest-rated game for ESPN this season.
                An estimated 10.1 million households and 14 million viewers saw all or part of the overtime game, which did not have to go up against a Game 5 in the World Series.
                The Packers-Broncos game delivered the second most viewers for any show on cable television this year, behind only "High School Musical 2" on the Disney Channel. Packers-Broncos had a higher rating than the Dallas Cowboys at Buffalo Bills game Oct. 8, which had been the highest-rated Monday game of the season.

                    • Just a thought here, what if we pick up Adibi in the 2nd or 3rd round he plays SAM LB and could give Poppinga a run for his money as a stud LB to give us one of the best LB cores if not the best in the NFL... Again just a thought... Plus for some reason im just not a Poppinga fan. I really like the Idea of Justin King first round and a HB 2-3

                        It's tough to invest a lot in a linebacker that will likely only be on the field for about half the plays. I think it's a better idea to invest in a nickel cornerback since they'll likely eventually replace either Harris or Woodson as a starter. The Packers need to infuse their secondary with some young, top-end talent.

                          I couldn't agree more. I think that I would go after a a CB or TE in round one because Harris and Woodson are getting older and the idea of Bush as a starter makes me vomit. Wouldn't mind TT drafting all CB's in the first day, sort of like Denver did a couple years ago.

                          there are really no other pressing needs on this team then CB depth and maybe an up and coming TE. WR/RB/D and O line/linebacker are set. If i was gonna nitpick i would look at punters, John Ryan is solid but i think we could upgrade.

                          • Michael Silver from yahoo actually has a brain!
                            As Brett Favre's breathtaking deep ball soared through the thin Colorado air Monday night, football fans everywhere but the Rockies were sky-high with the expectation that the 38-year-old quarterback was producing yet another unforgettable thrill.
                            But shortly after Packers wideout Greg Jennings raced into the end zone to complete the 82-yard hookup on the first play of overtime, it was time to get grounded and consider the ramifications of Green Bay's 19-13 victory over the Broncos.
                            First, how impressive is the Packers' defense? Led by linebacker Nick Barnett and cornerback Charles Woodson, Green Bay limited a Broncos team that had put up 31 on the Steelers the previous week to a touchdown and a pair of field goals, surviving a late drive on which Denver was four yards from victory. The defenses of the Cowboys and Giants get more attention, but among the NFC's top contenders, the Pack's might actually be the best of the three.
                            Secondly, while Favre's two scoring bombs led the highlight packages, did anyone happen to notice that a first-year player named Ryan Grant ran 22 times for 104 yards? If the Packers suddenly have a running game to go with their majestically revived quarterback, this could be a very good offense when the weather turns and the games get big.
                            I dont think our D is better than Dallas. But maybe equal nor do i think Grant is the permanant solution, but i could see him and our line getting a confidence boost.

                              You did not just say that. RB is far and away our biggest need. Here's how I'd rank them:

                              1.RB
                              2.CB
                              3.S
                              4.TE
                              5.LB

                              Jon Ryan is seventh in net average, he certainly doesn't need to be replaced.

                              • I dont think RB is that big
                                1-CB
                                2-TE
                                3-RB
                                4-LB
                                5-S
                                6-DE (Not sure how old KGB is but it seems like he's been here since 2000 so he is a bit up there and a young pass rushing specialist would be nice)
                                7-OG

                                we've got tons of youth at RB and alot of age at CB
