This isn't necessarily directed towards Uffda, but is Johnathan Franklin a bust? Whether you think he is, or he isn't, shouldn't your "categorization" of Worthy and Sherrod be similar to this point?

As far as the importance of draft positioning, w/o looking, I can't tell you where Brooks, Newsome, Evans, Butler, Winters, Bennett, Levins, or Chmura were picked. However, that's my point. Wherever Datone or Boyd were picked, does it really matter so long as the job is getting done? No doubt that to this point Datone has been a let down, but if the job is getting done on the line (admittedly that's a big "if") it's not that big of a deal, especially with a cap number under 2 million.

Worthy did ok his rookie year. Never really stood out, but didn't really suck.

Thing with him is, he got hurt at the end of that year, and so missed much of last year rehabbing the knee. Now he needs to get healthy and show he can get back at it.

Worried about Worthy. Could they try stashing him on IR again like they did last year? The fact that he hurt his back lifting weights is rather ominous.

I was thinking the same, and that it's probably the only way he "makes the team" this year. If I'm not mistaken he missed all of OTAs and now 2+ weeks of TC?

Why?

Simple they have learned , or soon will learn, subject and content does not matter, these threads are created just to show everyone here how much more superior the creator is than anyone else on these forums, and believe me when I say this, at some point as some continue to feed the troll, this thread will turn into a "we are all blinded by our green and gold glasses, and Ted Thompson is the worst GM in the league and it's unbelievable that he gets so much support"

Any knowledgeable fan realizes you can't judge a player after 1 year and 1 preseason game.

Especially when said player was injured the 1st preseason game of his rookie year. which set his 1st year development behind.

The problem since "The Creator" has already deemed him a bust, he will continue to bash him at any chance, because he is always right and anyone else is wrong.

Not exactly correct. People who view may well have already made a comment. They may come back to read more of the replies but don't always post another comment right away. They can do so later when they have more time. Not everyone who views and then doesn't immediately follow up with a comment is a lurker. The lack of comments probably has nothing to do with uffda udfa Offline creating this thread. I rather link it that he is willing to look outside the norm. There are a few on here who do, like nerdmann. That is one of the reason I come here is to see what other perspectives are. If I didn't want that I would read the AP homogenized version of an issue.

Kudos to jlyons043 Offline for posting.

This is why we can't have nice things, folks.

People should realize that every packers fan opinion is important and valued. I felt I would be in the majority thinking that Datone should be given more time, and reached out for support. I am a notorious lurker. As pointed out by another member previously I only have 60 some posts but have been a member since 2009. I have been a member of too many forums that devolved into pure bashfests, and I have no desire to see this one go that way. We have much to be happy and excited for as packer fans. I recommend cherishing these moments because all good things come to an end eventually.
