The Official Packers Off-season Thread!!

259 posts in this topic

Stealing a page from FG:

This thread is for ideas on what moves the packers should make or have made in the off-season...re-signings, new coaching, trades, free agency, etc...it will change throughout the off-season as moves are made.

of course that all depends on who the packers draft,trade,and sign.

discuss

Wow Rick, is it my birthday? grin

So are we (the Packers) going to take a DE with our first round pick? I think that makes the most sense at this point. I hope the new defense will be able to hold on to the lead for all 4 quarters this year. GO PACK GO!

Draft some o-line for that poor b@stard Rodgers. He was sacked 34 times last season, that was the 7th highest in the league(an argument could be made that it was the 5th highest since three QB's were sacked 38 times). He may have lead the league in TD passes had his backside not spent so much time getting familiar with the turf.

Wait, wait, wait. Forget that I said that. I want Aaron to get to know J.A. and the Williams twins as intimately as possible this season grin

packers suck nobody cares. sorry

Hahahahahaha....you queen fans kill me.

I'd like to see them add some depth to the D line, then maybe add more depth at CB...The two we got ain't getting any younger.

And once, JUST ONCE I would like ot see Thompson surprise everyone and go after a quality F/A and spend a few bucks, kinda like when Reggie came to title town.

thats the only language they know when it come to the Pack.

They do need help at the O line, get some quality D linemen and yes get younger at CB. It would be nice to see Thompson go after some players for the 1st time, it will come just dont know when.

I don't know that much about the Packers personnel or what their needs are but I fully expect them to contend for the division Title.

I know last year was a major let-down but I don't think they need to do more than fill a couple holes and get a few more breaks to compete or possible win our division.

Let's try and stay on topic and avoid the silly stuff in these dedicated team threads.

They've got holes on both sides of the ball, especially up front. Unless Mr. Rodgers has a much improved year and their o-line improves, they will place no higher than third in the division.

O-line would be nice, but how many games did the Pack lose in the 4th quarter? We lost 4 games by less than 3 points after leading midway through the 4th quarter. Was that due to our defensive coach or was it due to a defense that is getting on in years? I agree with the above that it would be nice if Thompson found a "noteworthy" free agent this year.

Have the Packers even signed a free-agent this year? Been pretty quiet over there.

History shows that the Pack usually has to wait until right before the draft due to knowing/not knowing if Favre would be back............I think they may still be confused with the whole process.

They should try for some more O-linemen and younger corners.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings at all if Thompson got the axe. At least we should be able to finish ahead of the Lions again crazy Should be a good run between MN and Chicago - the Bears have a quarterback this year.....thank goodness the Viqueens don't or they'd be a monster.

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
