You may have heard that Tom Brady of the New England Patriots is going to miss the first quarter of the NFL regular season over an alleged PSI issue of his balls. This makes way for Jimmy Garoppolo to start those four games. This has brought upon a lot of questions and quite honestly, Bill Belichick handles it awesomely! Besides being one of the greatest football minds ever, I admire his approach to reporters. Case in point.

Today Belichick grew annoyed being asked over and over about Brady and then was asked "What happens if Jimmy Garoppolo plays better?" and Belichick responded with "Look, I told you what's going to happen", meaning that Brady would start the 5th game of the season. The reporter followed up with "So there's no ..." and Belichick shook his head and under his breath says "Jesus Christ".

I love it!!!

I don't want [USERLINK]Smokey[/USERLINK] to get all bent out of shape here so I'm going to tie this in with the Packers right quick. BigGrin

Let's say Aaron Rodgers was suspended for four games and Brett "Future HOF QB for Packers" Hundley is forced to start those four games. How would you feel if Mike McCarthy were to respond similar to how Belichick did to that same line of questioning?




DISCLAIMER: While I admire Belichick's no bull approach, I do believe he could be more respectful towards reporters. I think a little smirk while muttering "Jesus Christ" would have been better than a disgusted annoyed "Jesus Christ". Know what I'm saying?!?

Twitter has made changes to their twitter embed that were causing slower page load times. The "Tweeter" has been split into three sections and moved to the www.PackersHome.com/Home page. You can find former and current Packers Players, Packers Bloggers/Writers and some National media/misc folks.

This brought our page load from over 2.4 seconds to under 1.5 seconds.

Also, the Packers Current Headlines block has moved from left to right and increased from 7 headlines to 10 headlines.

I'm thinking Brett Goode opens up on the PUP. As a long snapper you don't think running is that important until you realize that the long snapper is usually one of the first people down field on punt coverage.

Kyle Murphy | Offensive Tackle | Tackle | 6'7" - 305 lbs.


OVERVIEW
Murphy played like a solid right tackle prospect as a second-team All-Pac-12 pick his junior year, his first full year as a starter. In 2015, however, the brother of former Harvard and Minnesota Vikings tackle Kevin Murphy slid to left tackle and improved greatly in pass protection while maintaining his toughness in the run game. He combined with left guard Joshua Garnett as first-team All-Conference picks on the blind side of quarterback Kevin Hogan, who reaped the benefits of their play.

STRENGTHS Has good feel for the position. Very aware in pass protection seeking out blitzes and twists and takes consistent angles up to the linebackers in the running game. Once he gets moving in space, is able to open up his hips and run with a relatively athletic gait. Plays with strong hands and good placement that can snatch and latch if he gets there first. Makes low pad level a priority in run game. Is usually low man and will use good leg drive or snap hips to secure the block. Adequate change direction in space. Patient second level blocker allowing the block to come to him. Outstanding work with teammate Joshua Garnett with combo blocks and double teams. Doesn?t lean in pass protection and can gain decent ground with his kick ­slides.

WEAKNESSES Feet are just average from a quickness standpoint. While he can be a little slow out of his stance and off to the races when moving laterally. Will get antsy pre-­snap. Tape shows him getting some headstarts that weren?t called by college officials. Troubling anchor issues as pass blocker. Will get stiff legged at impact in protection, raising pad level and losing anchor leverage. Needs to play more flat­-footed when shooting his punch. Speed to power rushers give him problems so may need to make inside hand placement a greater priority.

DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 5 or 6

SOURCES TELL US "I don't think you can play him for at least a year until he gets stronger. He's a good run blocker but I don't know if he's strong enough to play on the right side or quick enough to play left." -- AFC general manager

NFL COMPARISON Ty Sambrailo

BOTTOM LINE Interesting prospect full of juxtapositions. On one hand, he?s an athletic mover in space, but his foot quickness is just average. While he plays with good bend, leg drive and low pad level as a run blocker, he tends to play too tall and lose his anchor against bull­ rushers. Murphy plays with good tackle instincts and shows enough potential to become an eventual starter in the NFL if he can improve his overall strength and tighten up some of his pass protection flaws.
