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.

I like Pier's suggestion, keep these dedicated threads on topic. There are plenty of other threads that we can empty our spleens on. LOL

The Pack needs help on both sides of the line and a new GM laugh

Seems like they keep losings good DBs the past few years. What's up with that?

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.

    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new!

    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
