  • Will we miss Jolly more than we've been expecting?

    Last season, easily Jolly's finest in a four-year career, the Packers relied more on him than any other defensive lineman. He led the unit in snaps with 835, an average of 49.1 over 17 games. He was second in pressures with 12, and first in both batted passes (11) and turnover-producing plays (four).

    And remember one of those turnovers was his athletic, amazing goalline int of Cutler late in the opening week close win over the Bears. Without that play, we might have lost that game thanks to Al Barbre.

      Why didn't you tell this to them before they drafted the guys specifically for the position, in the 3-4? Where were you then?
      They drafted them because they're looking for someone who can generate a pass rush at DE in a base 3-4. Neither guy was drafted as a potential future starter. I'm right here, where are you??

        You should call Ted and let him no he forgot to measure/weigh them.

        On a sidenote, anyone watching this CBS game San Diego at New Orleans.... did you catch Dan Dierdorf just talking about the Super Bowl in Dallas?
        That fat bastard said that if it's anyone other than New Orleans, Minnesota, or Dallas then it will be a huge upset. He said those 3 are clearly above all others. And he mentioned Atlanta and Arizona.

        Hello? Dallas is in another league than we are even though we almost shut them out last year? Really?

        Anyone know Dierdorf's Twitter name?

        Also, I'm tired of seeing articles where Revis, Aso, and Bailey are mentioned but no Woodson.

        • ****. We're going to hear so much crap of people trying to compare Favre-Rodgers with McNabb-Kolb since we open against the Eagles.

            If that bothers Kolb even a tiny bit, good. Anything that might help us, great.
            I just saw that Eagles DE Trent Cole was carted off with an ankle last night... MRI scheduled. If he misses just one game, week one, that won't bother me too much. Or Rodgers.

            Cole-Brandon Graham is a nice 1-2 DE combo.

              I've been seeing that ludicrous comparison too. The talking heads are so quick to underestimate the record breaking start to his career Rodgers had.

                Rodgers doesn't get enough love. Within 2 years of being a starter he's considered a top 5 QB. Thats impressive. Only 3 guys are consensus above him, and all have rings, and 2 are hall of fame locks.
                Plus add in the factor of replacing the biggest icon in team history, in a market that worships football more than any other place in the country. It's very impressive.
                Aaron Rodgers looks to be an extremely rare scenario. Kolb will be lucky to be half as good as Rodgers is. Plus McNabb was no Favre.

                • Yes we are very fortunate to have Mr Rodgers... I just love remembering all the Bear fans who thought we would be screwed. They said we would be looking for a QB for the next 20 years like they have been. Usually thats the case, but it just makes me all happy thinking about it. Not to mention we didnt find a good QB but a great one.

                  • I don't know, Rodgers gets a ton of love these days. Pretty soon Rodgers and Rivers are going to dominate the NFL like Brady and Manning did for so long. I wonder if Rodgers gets 5,000 yards this year. It's scary how good he can be when you add Finley and pass protection. If only we had a receiver out of the backfield...

                        Like who?
                        Sproles? Bush? McFadden? Marshawn? Westbrook? Norwood? McCluster? Leon Washington? Slaton?

                          No it wasn't just you. Watching with my parents, I said some curse words after those 2 passes.
                          That's how Farve got Robert Brooks and Antonio Freeman hurt/concussed so often.

                            • WR Patrick Williams looked good on Thursday. He had two key 3rd down catches for 1st downs, got open and caught the ball smoothly.

                              Chastin West is faster than heII, and he showed good hands in his limited opportunity.

                              Jason Chery (with one R only in Chery), sparked our special teams unit with the return to the big house and Lambeau Leap.

                              Which of these guys do you all think has the best chance to take the #5 WR spot from Brett Swain, if we go with 5? Swain doesn't seem 100% ready to play with the recurring knee issue, and I think he might start on PUP.

                              • From Matt Bowen this morning:

                                *It appears that the Packers have developed Matt Flynn into a commodity. At some point in the near future, maybe next offseason, they will be able to trade him for a decent draft pick. It would help his value if Flynn played well in a meaningful situation in the regular season. And head coach Mike McCarthy tells me he definitely has confidence that Flynn would play well if given the chance. He said the former seventh-round pick has total command of the Packers offense after just two years in Green Bay.

                                Also:

                                Players like Sidney Rice can’t be replaced like an alkaline battery.

                                So last week when the Vikings learned Rice would probably miss half the season, they came up with a plan. They started shopping for a receiver who could fill their specific needs without being Rice.

                                They wanted a smart player who could learn a system quickly. They needed someone who could fit in with an established team. They had to have a taller receiver who could go up and get it. They wanted a player who would run good routes. And they wanted someone with reliable hands.

                                They liked Vincent Jackson (who wouldn’t?), but didn’t like his price tag. That led them to Greg Camarillo.

                                The Vikings studied each of the 163 tape cut-ups in which Camarillo showed up on a play by play sheet over the last two years. One thing stood out: not a single drop. He had 105 catches, and not a single drop.

                                Hence, their trade of Benny Sapp to the Dolphins for the Stanford product. Now the Vikings have to see if Camarillo can click with Brett Favre. Rice and Favre had something special going.
