  1. Jay is who we thought he was. Great arm, terrible footwork, decision making that gets exponentially bad when he gets hit early and/or tosses a pick.
  2. not f'ng going to the packers in r1. The Packers defense is swiss cheese. TT will go BPA - so long as it is a NT/ILB, CB or Safety available
  3. Packers are making a statement. Two O line, two highly rated RBI. Fine, you want to play cover two? We are going to pound the ball
  4. GB traded up to get him. Lacy the starter and Franklin change of pace back?Yes. Both are decent receivers both strong runners. I would say benson and Starks are gone, possibly green.
  5. Really wanted to see that. Rodgers' play-action fakes would have been even more lethal with an ACTUAL NFL RB.Packers had to get stronger on the dline. They either made that picked or trade down
  6. I'm hearing alot of RB, WR and TE talk but the fact is GB's season ended the last 2 years because of their defense. Yes they need to address those positions but that defense needs an upgrade. I was torn between D line and Safety here but went safety for a couple of reasons. Many people thought the defense suffered with the loss of Cullen Jenkins and while I think they did the bigger loss was Nick Collins. Cyprien brings that potential with his size, speed, athleticism and toughness. To me the Packers biggest issue on defense is toughness especially in the secondary. The Packers may have the worst tackling secondary in the league and now with Woodson gone it will be even worse. Cyprien brings that athletic ability and toughness the Packers need on the back end. I don't think anyone in their secondary tackled Adrian Peterson last year. While Elam may be a little better hitter that Cyprien, Cyprien's size and athleticism is what makes him the Packer's pick. The Pack with live with the occasional coverage breakdown that Cyprien may have as he goes through the growing pains. That secondary needs an attitude adjustment and Cyprien's the guy to bring some physicality to the back end of the Packers' defense. This draft has a ton of Dline depth and that position will definitely be addressed at some point in the draft. Best read on what the Pack will do in order they want to? 1. Trade down, out of the 1st round. They need dline/dbackfield help. Talent (compared to where they pick in r1) in r2/3 is as good as r1 2. If they don't trade down, it will be a dline player 3. Won't take a safety in R1 (but might in R2 depending on how many picks they end up with)
  7. True. This is a nice draft deep with talent. Should be fun to watch the real thing.exactly why I think the Pack will be trading down if they can find someone to take their first pick for value. Tons of depth, nothing really great were they pick.
  8. That was a good pick. Your GM would be proud of the value you got there. I would have traded up for him, but his combine scared me a bit.I don't think it is a bad pick, but he is another right tackle (I know he played LT at Bama - no way he makes that in the pro's) and he is a run blocker, which is not exactly what the Packers typically look for. While I can't fault this pick, other than the fact I think if this is the situation TT finds himself in, I expect to see him trade the pick. I see a lot of great 2/3 round picks but not a lot of 1st round picks left for the Pack. If someone had a hard on, TT will move this pick
  9. There's a lot of good discussion in the other thread where you obsess over Flacco.It's got to suck that such a mediocre QB just sent your team off to the golf course.
  10. I might put him a little higher than 15, but I think your points are all correct.

He isn't a bad quarterback, but then again besides Sanchez (who also despite being awful was carried on his teams back to two afc championships...) there really aren't any bad starting QBs in the NFL, there are however QBs that are neither impressive talents, atheletes or game managers and Flacco is one of them.In the end, it's all scoreboard. Flacco led teams win. Statistically speaking, no team since 2008 has the wins that the Ravens have had. Once is luck, two is happenstance, three is contact with the enemy. Complaints about Flacco remind of what Buddy Ryan said about Chris Carter - "all he does is catch touchdowns". Well, yes, all Flacco does is win. Every freaking year. And the argument "its the system" is stupid. All QB play in a system. Good QB win in the system they are in.I'm sorry, all he does is win? Isn't this his first SB? He hasn't won anything yet. Before yesterday he has never won the big game he needed to.Ignoring last year where he was good enough to get to the SB, minus a drop by Lee Evens, which was a freaking perfect pass.
  12. Anyone know which QB has the highest QB rating this post season? Since we are all about the statistics.

  14. Good QB win. Great QB win consistently. While in FF wise Flacco is not a starter, in the real world, Joe is near great. If Evans caught that pass (which was a great pass) and Balto made the super bowl last year, this would be two years in a row.Flacco was good enough for his team to make the Super Bowl two years in a row. Based on his success, I would say Flacco has elevated the Ravens.I am not saying that he is Bart Starr, but they have a lot of similarities.
  15. link to the above quoted article Also from the article... So to me the question is, who will try to fix this guy...and can they do it
  16. RW will throw/run for 3 td's in each of the next two games. Then he will have his lunch money stolen from him
  17. cobb continues to look like the #4 WR through the pre-season - and really #5 after JFin
  18. 2nd td of the night for Wilson. Hard to not think he is the starter. Of course 3 roughing the passer penalties really does help move the ball
  19. I keep hearing and seeing that Wilson has the advantage at QB due to having this huge upside vs Flynn.Many in the Wilson camp keep on pointing to Flynn being ordinary and that he does not have big play ability as an NFL QB. Also, in saying he has no big play ability they say he is what he is a conservative NFL QB.I don't know how anyone can say one way or the other that Flynn over the course of a season will not produce and have big play ability and put up big numbers. I mean he seemed to do ok in his start last year for producing some big plays and big numbers. He also threw the ball on a rope 50 yards down the field to Owens that should have been hauled in for a td if we are talking about producing those big plays.Wilson may beat out Flynn, but I am still not convinced that Flynn can't or won't be a very good starting NFL qb due to losing out to Wilson. Common, Flynn has no upside. I mean, it's not like he holds any passing records for the Green Bay Packers or anything....
  20. What are you basing your opinion about Carroll's tenuous situation on?- 14-18 in two years in arguably the worst division in football.- Sub .500 record as an NFL head coach across three stops.- An impatient owner in Paul Allen who demands better than average.- A city that had to stomach horrendous QB play last season.I dunno...he could very well be in line to coach the team forever. I doubt it, though. He hasn't exactly demonstrated the ability to win at this level consistently. Dominating a weak Pac-10 in football with every built in advantage you can think of (and cheating on top of it) <> an elite NFL coach. Wilson isn't battling Tom Brady or Drew Brees here. Matt Flyn is as much an unknown as Wilson is. Piloting the offensively loaded Green Bay Packers while the defense has little to no game tape on you is one thing. Sustaining that success for a season on a team with less talent is another. We'll see in time, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Carroll go with Wilson. Really people? Lets see....Flynn has spent how many years on an NFL team? Which has developed more starting NFL quarterbacks for other teams than every other team. Where at which he started twice, one time setting the all time team record for touchdown passes? Exceeding a couple of qbs you might of heard of - Star, Dickey, Favre, Rodgers, among others. But sure - Flynn is as much unknown as some rookie.I'd be careful hanging your hat over Flynn's performance against the Lions. It was the final game of the regular season and the Lions secondary was atrocious. It was a great game, but I think it's a bit misleading. He also failed to lead his team to victory against the Patriots, throwing a pick-six and taking a sack to end the game. Let me ask you this: If the Seahawks were dead set on Flynn, why did they draft Wilson? They have some major holes elsewhere, so why go after a QB? IMO, there was a reason why Flynn was a 7th round pick.Because they saw Wilson as a great potential talent and felt it was worth drafting him before someone else. But it is not like they spent a first round pick on the guy. They did not think (nor did anyone else) think he was a 1st year starting qb.Why did the packers take Rodgers when they had Favre? Because he was to much value not to take, at that draft position. Even though they had no intention of starting Rodgers his rookie season.
