  1. And, my last post on this. I'm not sure how anyone can be backing Bennett at this point. It's more clear than ever that he has not been honest about what went down. http://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/nfl/packers/2017/11/15/packers-players-refute-martellus-bennetts-fabrication-regarding-team-doctor/868852001/ "Bakhtiari missed the rest of the Packers' game at Minnesota, a loss in which backup quarterback Brett Hundley could’ve used his blindside protector. So after hearing former Packers tight end Martellus Bennett’s allegations last week that McKenzie pressured him to play after deciding to get shoulder surgery, Bakhtiari said he was upset. “Flat out,” Bakhtiari said, “what he’s saying is crap.” Bakhtiari was hardly the only Packers player angry about Bennett’s allegations against their team doctor. Right guard Jahri Evans said “we all know there was some fabrication” in Bennett’s statement. Receiver Jordy Nelson said he thought Bennett’s accusations were “nonsense.” "I think everyone knows what’s the truth," Nelson said. Outside linebacker Clay Matthews pointed to the inconsistencies in Bennett’s timeline. After deciding in Green Bay his shoulder injury required surgery, Bennett was active for the New England Patriots on Sunday night after being claimed last week. Bennett even caught three passes for 38 yards. “He seemed to suit up and looked good on Sunday night,” Matthews said." Matthews said he and teammates “got a good laugh from” Bennett explaining how his release from the Packers unfolded, specifically that McKenzie would ever ask a player to jeopardize his health by playing. “My experience has been fantastic with Pat,” Matthews said. “I think he’s an awesome doc. I think he puts our health in front of the team first and foremost. In fact, I think a lot of people have gotten on his case because he’s too conservative. So I wouldn’t put much merit into those comments made. “I think it really speaks volumes to hear everybody’s rebuttal, and come to his aid in that regard as opposed to the other person.”
  2. I agree. However, the flood gates are now open. I don't think it matters anymore. Guy hits on you you're not interested in? Harassment. Bad joke? Harassment. We're down the rabbit hole on this, and to the point where allegations are now reported as facts.
  3. From JSOnline: Safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) and running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) both did sprints and agility drills on the sideline during practice. Running back Aaron Jones (knee) was not present. I'm guessing they'll limit Montgomery's contact, but I definitely would not rule out him getting carries Sunday. Wouldn't surprise me one bit to see him out there for a handful of snaps, based on how he's played through the injury so far. Williams hasn't been a great runner. But the fact that he's been active ahead of Mays all season has to be taken into account.
  4. Herro to Kentucky now. This is exactly what he was looking for, as he feels he won't be there more than a year or two tops. He was not going to get that guarantee at Wisconsin with all of the young guards/wings in place already. http://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/high-schools/2017/11/14/whitnalls-tyler-herro-commits-kentucky/860249001/ "When you think of Kentucky, you think of a one-and-done school, if you go there you have to be one-and done," Herro said. "But talking to the coaches, they're not rushing anyone to get out in one year. It's more of taking your time. "They're quick at developing people, so that's why people leave after one year. They don't party. ... Right from Day 1 you're working out every day, two, three times a day. Your goal when you're there is to get to the NBA."
  5. I don't think Franken is talking about false advertising here. Instead, Franken is talking about how a few major players now control what you read, see, and here. They prey on human psychology to get you to do things they want you to do. And now, they're putting devices in your home to make it even easier to add to their treasure trove of information on you. I'm with Franken on this. It is way too much power in the hands of a few.
  6. I've said from the get go that you can't judge Hundley until we get a little more game experience from him. He certainly showed some of the skills that Green Bay likes, including two really key throws late in the game to seal the win. Now the question remains if we can do it consistently. I have more hope of that now.
  7. Gotta believe Mays will be active. Williams certainly gets first crack at the carries. I also have a hunch we'll see some more of Aaron Ripkowski, maybe to the tune of 5 carries. Also add in some wildcat with Randall Cobb, which they went back to last week. Bottom line for me is Mays will be active, but carries are going to be way spread out. If something happens to Williams, he probably moves to the starting spot.
  8. "Martellus Bennett is living a lie." https://247sports.com/Bolt/Boomer-Esiason-believes-New-England-Patriots-TE-Martellus-Bennett-is-living-a-lie-110471761
  9. He's so injured he can jump right onto the practice field in New England. Whatever man. Continue to blame the organization, that is fine. I don't trust Bennett one bit, and his history indicates bigger issues over time. I'll take the reputation of the Green Bay front office and medical staff over that of Bennett. Enjoy the rest of the NFL Season.
  10. There was no injury talk before Rodgers got hurt. There was only injury talk after Rodgers got hurt. The math on this is pretty easy, and it all equals Bennett not being honest about what is going on. Pretty clear way more Green Bay players have lined up to defend their medical staff than have lined up to defend Bennett. It's crystal clear that Bennett is the issue.
  11. Anyone with half a brain knows exactly what happened here. Rodgers got hurt, and Bennett quit on Green Bay. End of story. Anyone trying to defend that is being willfully ignorant.
  12. Just trying to see if there are trends within this data. It's good that the league is tracking it at least.
  13. I'm not sure the data supports that, but I guess we'll see what it looks like after this season. https://www.playsmartplaysafe.com/newsroom/reports/2016-injury-data/
  14. This is completely wrong, but keep on keeping on if that is what you believe.
