Exactly. He tweaked his ankle. He'll be fine. Why if someone gets nicked up do we already start talking about cutting him. Way too knee jerk here.


lol the first line clearly states that "Certainly he is physically limited."

Morgan Burnett has not done a whole lot during today's padded practice. Certainly he is physically limited.

What if it is a message though? What if Micah Hyde and Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix form a better tandem than Burnett with either? What do the Packers do with Burnett? Release him? Trade him? Drop him down the depth chart?



No, Burnett won't be released. That is just silly talk, but who's to say he couldn't be moved via trade? We lack the depth for a trade so that makes it unlikely.

The remark about which TANDEM makes the Packers better is something we should be keying on in this topic, I think.

What if lets say ...

Burnett + Hyde = 30
Burnett + Clinton-Dix = 40
Clinton-Dix + Hyde = 70


Obviously, you start the best TANDEM, right?

I've read that ALL THREE may be used in some packages, so even the tandem argument doesn't really apply.

even if Burnett was significantly hurt/under performing we're left with Banjo and Richardson for depth. The Packers will hire Jerry Jones to be GM before they cut/trade Burnett this year.

Even when he's available, he's not that good. And now he's not even able to practice.

They have already shown the packages where Hyde moves to CB in certain Nickel and Dime situations. I don't see Burnett being cut before this season plays out unless we get some lopsided trade in our favor, and I don't see why any suitors would come calling for Burnett at this point. I want to see this play out with all three playing this season.

The guy on the bench is always better than the guy on the field.

This thread did get me thinking about Burnett's long-term future. If Micah Hyde and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix emerge as viable starters, then Burnett is expendable. I like Burnett, and I think he'll be better if he's playing with somebody he trusts on the backend, but the team is better with Hyde on the field. Putting Burnett’s long-term future aside, I do love the versatility of this year’s secondary.

Both Casey Heyward and Davone House are having good camps. We know what we have in Sam Shields and Tramon Williams. Hyde’s move to safety has gone smooth and Clinton-Dix is certainly a better alternative than M.D. Jennings is.

Everybody is looking at the front seven, but the secondary is the strength of the defense.

Clintin-Dix didn't get as much playing time at family night as Richardson and didn't do as much with his time.

He may end up 4th on the depth chart.

Which wouldn't be a bad thing, He can take more time to catch on like Nick Collins did.

You mean unlike Nick Collins did? ... Collins was a starter every year... he missed 3 starts in his first 6 years... and those were all in one year and due to injury.

No, I meant as in Nick really didn't really catch on for the first couple years. Not that he didn't play.
