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.

I think they are going to go OT/OL in the first round then fill in the D/OL after that.

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
