I don't know, that play showed me enough, based on what I've seen of him otherwise (mostly in college), that he can be an effective #4 WR. I definitely don't think he'd make a good number 2, or even a number 3, but he's not really supposed to be that. If forced to play that role for a little while, he'll just need to make a few plays a game and I think the Packers will be OK. He's almost guaranteed to get single coverage often, and I think he can win enough to make a few plays a game against that coverage. The bigger burden is going to fall on someone such as Finley to pick up the slack. He obviously does have borderline elite talent, and he may be counted on to really show it for the foreseeable future.

But again, I think the key to all of this will be continuing to focus on the running game.


I'd take him over Sanjay Beach.

You have the benefit of having seen him in college so I'll give you that. One thing seems certain if early results are any indication, Rodgers won't shy away from going to him. You are right about the single coverage and maybe he will surprise everyone. At the very least the catch and run probably gave Rodgers a bit more confidence in him after the early miscues. I will say this though, I do feel more confident about him with the catch and run than I would without it.

TheKanataThrilla: He's better than what we currently have backing up AR.
Smokey: A backup what, bartender ?
TheKanataThrilla: Looks like Manziel is getting cut. I'd be interested in him as a back-up.
Zero2Cool: Dunno.
Smokey: WILL WE HAVE A SB "CHAT", Zero2Cool ?
Mucky Tundra: I wonder if Stat Padford will follow Johnson to the retirement center?
uffda udfa: Winston Moss has a better all time win % than MM at 1000%. Let's make this permanent. :)
uffda udfa: We should take note and realize our Jordy might not be Jordy at 31 this season.
uffda udfa: I think Detroit has a way of doing that to players.
Zero2Cool: Calvin is retiring at age 30, just like the great Barry Sanders.
uffda udfa: He'd be 31 just like Jordy but his body is done.

Smokey: Prize ?
Mucky Tundra: Oh! I thought for a minute it got lost in the mail
Zero2Cool: Your prize. I feel bad. It's just been so chaotic with personal life and work stuff and my girls. I need to clone myself! lol
Mucky Tundra: No problem Zero! (Psst, what are we talking about?)
uffda udfa: We aren't going to go 19-0 for 4 straight seasons with this regime! I fully believe there's one that could get us closer.
Zero2Cool: Mucky, I haven't forgot. Just been really busy. Hopefully this weekend.
Mucky Tundra: Only four undefeated seasons? Such low standards!
Zero2Cool: .. or in SOME folks eyes ... go 19 - 0 four seasons in a row, nothing less is acceptable with potential HOF QB at helm. :massiveEyeRoll:
nerdmann: To become a truly GREAT coach, Mike needs to learn how to put other teams away.
uffda udfa: MM has always been secondary to my concerns as to what's wrong in Green Bay. Now, it appears he's speaking out just like guys like Dakota a
uffda udfa: Yup.. George Seifert and Barry Switzer won SB's. Do you honestly think MM is a great head coach? No need to cite any stats...just your op
