He first felt the effects of patellar tendinitis in his knees late in his senior season at the University of Iowa in 2005. The pain persisted through his first season with the Green Bay Packers and was worse than ever by training camp last summer. He underwent surgery in early September.

Nearly nine months later, Hodge is pain-free and expects to be at full speed — for the first time in his NFL career — when he returns to the practice field.

"The last few years, I was putting out a product that wasn't myself," Hodge, a linebacker and former third-round draft pick, said this week. "I just had to (play through the injury) because I had to. But now, it's a different story."

Its now or never. I dont think the Packers will hold onto him for another year just waiting for him to be healthy.

We really don't have much of a need for Hodge anymore. Chillar is able to fill in for all 3 LB positions if needed. It's too bad becuase I really liked him coming out of college, but with Barnett there wasn't a place for him anyway.

I really liked Hodge coming out as well. I don't see the point in cutting him , he should be a solid backup along with Chillar and he could have an impact on special teams. I don't know what his contracts like though, but I can't imagine that we'd cut him for cap reasons.

There's no way we keep 6 LBers.
Someone will be packing....... I'd sure like to get Glenn Dorsey for Hawk (our #5 pick for this year's #5 pick). Admit it.

That's just ridiculous. No way they'd consider it and I don't think that would help us anyways. Hawk is a stud and the center of our defense along with Barnett.

Why? Harrell is a bigger and fits the D we run better IMO, Dorsey is more of a Penetrating get through the line type and if we wanted one of those we would have kept Corey Williams rather than chance a pick or trade on an unproven Rookie. Like mentioned before Our defense is primarily based upon BIG defensive tackles who can force double teams and cave the pocket in allowing the Linebackers to shoot the gaps and make a play, Dorsey while a great player who could fit in many schemes would probably not be the best fit for us (not saying he wouldnt be effective, just that he could fit in other schemes and places better).

Hawk Plays how one is supposed to play in our defense he doesn't free lance he plays to the scheme and listens to the coaches as opposed to someone like Lavar Arrington who constantly played on his own terms and out of the designed defense, while he made some big plays he was caught out of position ALOT which lead to his falling out with The Redskins and the eventual downfall of his career. If you asked me to pick between Hawk and Dorsey I take Hawk 100% of the time. He's a natural leader with his play and attitude and a true Packer Person.

If Hodge is healthy I have no doubt he makes the roster but thats a big if to this point, Bishop has a good shot too as he showed some pretty good skill when given the chance. We know for sure that Hawk, Barnett, Popps, and Chillar are intact, will They choose to hold onto 5 or 6? Tracey White is also in the mix thanks to his special teams abillity.

In the end I think it turns out like this

Barnett-Bishop
Hawk-White
Poppinga-Chillar(backs up all three spots)

why wouldnt we keep 6? Have one backup for every starter. Maybe even 7 if White proves to be an okay backup.

A couple things,

1. Bishop does not have good cover skills. I'm sure a lot of fans have that preseason hit still in their minds which makes them think that, but he's actually pretty poor in coverage. When it comes to playing linebacker he's nothing more than a last resort.

2. Keeping 6 LBs is not at all out of the question. In fact that's considered normal.

3. Tracy White's spot on the roster is guarenteed. He doesn't have to prove his worth as a linebacker, because we're never going to use him as a linebacker. He was given a two year $1.8 million contract to be our special teams stud.

Of course..... that's not even a possibility ever of a trade, and neither team would do it.

Here’s a little tidbit for the next season. I was in Vegas over the weekend and stopped by a sportsbook to see what they had the odds at and to place my customary bet on the Packers winning the Super Bowl.

Here’s the odds from Fitzgerald’s on May 23:

Patriots 5/2
Colts 5/1
Cowboys 5/1
Chargers 5/1
Packers 6/1
Jaguars 8/1
Giants 10/1
Steelers 15/1
Seahawks 15/1
Saints 18/1
Broncos 18/1
Vikings 18/1
Browns 20/1
Bears 22/1
Buccaneers 25/1
Titans 25/1
Redskins 25/1
Eagles 30/1
Bengals 35/1
Cardinals 40/1
Texans 50/1
Bills 50/1
Panthers 50/1
Lions 50/1
Raiders 50/1
Ravens 50/1
Jets 60/1
Rams 60/1
49ers 60/1
Chiefs 75/1
Dolphins 100/1
Falcons 100/1

I’ll post this in the mock draft also and see if anyone wants to make a mock using this order instead of the finishing order from last year.

I think the Packers being the 5th most likely team to win the Super Bowl next year shows a lot of respect for the talent on the team beyond Favre. TT building the defense and bringing those young playmakers in bodes well for a good number of years for the Pack!

Good stuff.
Yes you could say it shows a lot of respect for the Packers.
Or a lot of respect for the betting power of the Packer Nation and they don't want to give us a longshot kinda payoff because they know there are a lot of Packer fans.

I think those odds are very kind to us. I can't see us being at 6/1 and the Vikes at 18/1, I'll be very pleased with another Divisional title and trip to the playoffs this year.

IWith the LB situation i don't think there is realy anything wrong with carrying 6 if they are big contributers on special teams.

I watched Bishop play back in Cali a couple of times without knowing who he was, but he stuck out like a sore thumb, making plays - always around the ball (actualy reminded me of EJ Henderson). He seems to be a great special teams candidate.

We are going through the same problem with how many LBs to carry in Minni, but some are specialist special teamers so it makes it more viable to carry more.

Those Vagas odds were pretty nuts huh, wouldnt mind taking some fliers on a couple of the lower teams. Shows the Pack and Vikes arnt as close as i thought, well according to them anyway. I was also suprised how high Denver was, i am expecting them to have a downer and pick in the top 10.

yeah good call on Denver.
they're overrated every season.

they have weak WRs other than brandon marshall and shanahan is totally overrated and i think still hasn't won more than one playoff game without elway there (and i think it was over New England in the one time i wagered on NE)
