    “The Packers will have the 21st pick, Noel, the first pick among the 12 teams that made the playoffs because they had the worst regular-season record of the playoff qualifiers.”

    This is not an accurate statement of the method for determining the draft order of the playoff teams. Teams that reached the playoffs are slotted in the order in which they were eliminated from the playoffs. The Packers draft 21st not because they had the worst record of all playoff teams, but rather because they were eliminated in the first weekend of the playoffs and had the worst record among those four eliminated teams.

    I wish people were a little les selfish. I know Aaron Rogers is worth the money in todays sports, and Clay. We need to sign Sam Shields and Mike Neal, BJ and others. If Mike and Dom want to keep there jobs, they need to come up with some new schemes this year. You are both way to predictable, other teams know what your going to do before you do it. This team needs to play more like a team next season. To many players want to be the hero and end up giving up a play that hurts them. Example: J. Bush should have held the outside and make it forth down. He is not the only mistake in the game. Just do your job and you will win and bring the trophy home next year. Two things should be a priority next year, protect your quarterback and put the other teams on the ground, period. Another thing McCarthy score every time you get the ball until the end of the game, they made it 60 minutes for a reason. Your not running up the score, it’s the name of the game. No more run three times and punt, always play like your behind.
    Bring home the trophy next year or just quit. Just in case of an emergency go get Cousin’s from Washington.

    I do not think the Packers will gamble with Jermichael Finley, which is the same scenario they faced with Nick Collins. I do not know who the backup QB will be next year. Tolzein is young and shows promise, but Matt Flynn or Seneca Wallace are the answer. That said, if I were the decision maker, I would say goodbye to Marshall Newhouse, Matt Flynn, Seneca Wallace, Evan Dietrich Smith, and B.J. Raji (who has not really been productive for two seasons). I would like to see at least one or two quality free agents join the Packers, but unfortunately Ted Thompson is too proud and will continue his quest of draft and develop.

    Correction: Matt Flynn or Seneca Wallace are NOT the answer.

    McCarthy is a great coach, capers not so much. Need a new def. coach. Free agents. We need shields,Neal,jones,Kuhn,Dietrich smith,and quarless back. Finley is to risky, BJ is junk now days,Flynn an Wallace are NOT the answer. In the draft we need outside lb, and corner after Hyde takes Jennings spot at safety. Then release Jennings.

  6. By James on Jan 8, 2014 | Reply

    O and we also need Pickett and jolly back.

    I agree with the last two post, but I also think they are to soft at both safety spots. Bring in a beast at safety and at inside lb, maybe a under sized outside lb from a small school that loves to hit and place him at safety. maybe a big hitter at lb to dictate against the run, ala ray lewis mentality, just nasty !

    So to sum up: We need help on the offensive line, defensive line, linebacker, corners and safety positions.

    Would be easier to say we have three players; Rodgers, Lacey and Nelson.

    ^^^^ So Cobb, Jones, Quarless, Boykin, and Starks have done nothing for the team this year you’re saying?

    Wade Phillips??? He would help our defensive improve. He’s the best out there and the Texans let him go!!!!

    How does 1265 Lombardi reconcile a GM-driven young roster
    approach with a “rocket science” defensive system with not so
    “right stuff” astronauts?
    Something’s got to give.

    I think the Pack gave up on Favre way too soon. We should have traded Rodgers and rode the Favre horse to glory and beyond! Favre should work out this offseason, sign with the Pack and we’d start the winning again!

    TT has so many holes and FAs on D. I bet he’s just salivating about the opportunity to scout and sign street FAs who will of course be “the next man up” when our crummy doctors don’t let the starters play or misdiagnose another hamstring injury.

    MM is a mediocre coach, DC is pathetic, fire this two and bring New blood to our team and we will Win moré future SB. No doubt about that, get rid of those two.

    MM has done an excellent job this year. AR goes down and they still win the division. And your saying Flynn needs to go. He saved our butts to keep us in the hunt. DC has done pretty good with what he had. Every game somebody went down. KEEP ALL COACHES AND WHAT FA WE CAN KEEP.
    We had a good year considering what they went through with injuries. COME ON SUPPORT YOUR TEAM
