  1. His team name is not "Mean Machine", is it, by any chance?
  2. Fiat billionaires are now fleeing to Bitcoin for safety for all the reasons we've been saying for years. 😅
  3. Why would Blacklock get DT designation? He's not a nose. Probably pushed inside on passing downs but I fully expect him to be listed as a DE.
  4. Or maybe every other GM in the league slammed their Big Boards in disgust as the Packers stole their would-be picks. We don't know. But we do know the guys that get paid to make these decisions did a lot more research and poking and prodding of the prospective picks than we did, and were privy to a lot more information that just isn't available to the chattering classes. Let's relax for a bit, and assume there's some method to the apparent madness. There'll be plenty of time later to call them out as dunces if the players go ####-up.
  5. Draft grades when the ink on the draft is still wet are silly, why put any stock in them? This post reminds me of the media slobbering all over recent Vikings drafts, typified by the 2016 one when they took Treadwell and were universally hailed as having crushed that draft. Four years later and they'll be lucky to have gotten a single compensatory sixth round pick out of that masterful "A+" tour de force. This Packers draft certainly might also eventually prove to be a debacle. Or, three or four years from now, it might prove to have been very crafty. But an obituary seems awfully premature at this point, before any of the players have had a single practice. Let's at least give these guys a little time to get a symptom or two before we bury them, eh?
  6. D'Andre Swift #14? I guess we can dream..
  7. I think his crap offensive line exacerbated many of the wrinkles in his game, all of which can be ironed out with time and development, two things he'll get plenty of before seeing any action. You can't iron out a weak arm. I'm not doing cartwheels over the pick like I was when Rodgers dropped to them, but I'm intrigued, to say the least. This guy's got an impressive arsenal of skills, tailor-made for the modern game, at the premier position. Again, if you're going to swing for the fences, this is the type of player you do it for, IMO. And I'm assuming the people getting paid for making these kinds of franchise-changing decisions did a lot of tire-kicking of all the players available at this point in the draft before coming to a consensus. I assumed he'd already be picked by the time the Packers were on the clock, and saying he went "2 rounds earlier than he should" seems absurd to me. But time will tell. We've been pretty lucky picking QBs for the past few decades, here's hoping this guy is the next big thing.
  8. Come on back off the ledge, guys. We might look back one day on this being an inspired pick. If you're going to swing for the fences, do it for a toolsy gunslinger. Lots of good players left in this draft to fill our temporary needs..
  9. These are...interesting. Recently-released soon-to-be-36-year-old Antoine Bethea at #27 of the dynasty safety rankings, while a player like 24-year old Chuck Clark doesn't crack the top-50?
  10. That's a catch and then a fumble. A farce if they overrule it. But it's the Pats so...
