He was quite stout last year, until he got hurt.


He was stout on the #25 Rush defense. He's played a huge number of plays in his 13 years. So despite being average on a bad line, and despite the fact he is in NFL terms ancient, he's the best option for the Pack to get better?

If we're going to ignore actual performance, let's bring back Nitschke. Huge upgrade over Hawk! Pair him with Robinson. Then we have some of the best to ever play!

Don't forget. In a league that is always looking for 'Big guys', Pickett and Jolly are sitting at home. Nobody wants them.

Time to move on.

I'm not the one ignoring actual performance. They weren't #25 until the end of the season.

Dude usually plays like 20 snaps a game. Pickett wasn't THE reason they were #25 at the end of the season but he wasn't THE reason they were in the top 10 earlier in the season, he's just a guy out there who is only in the way on anything but a run up the middle. There are plenty of teams that could use a good NT that can move and 0 teams that were interested in Pickett even on 90 man rosters, he has no off field concerns and is by all accounts a great teammate so maybe that tells you how useful he is at this point.

I respect the everliving shit out of Pickett, but it was and is time to move on. There is a new group of guys here with something to prove.

We lost a starter. A starter that was so respected last off season that he could only get a 1 year contract as a Free Agent. A starter on the #25 ranked rush defense. A player that totaled 16 starts last year and yet only managed a combined 17 tackles. 12 total and 5 assists. How can someone not jump on the pile for more than 5 assists in a year? There were 6 games in 2013 in which he did not register any type of tackle. Did I mention no sacks? For 2 years?

Glenn Dorsey- NT for 49ers in 2013. 41 Tackles, 2 sacks. In 6 years, he has 279 Tackles. Raji has...129 in 5 years. Dorsey was viewed as a failed 1st rd pick by KC.

I don't know all of the intricacies of a 3-4. But I know that Raji has not played at an above average level. Losing him was not the plan. But better him than a lot of others.

The Seahawks weren't Super Bowl champs until the end of the year. Does that mean they aren't the Super Bowl champs?

Was Raji not playing at the end of the year?

Someone said the Pack was #10 or something early in the year in Rush Defense. They were #25 at the end. To go from #10 to #25 means you had to be really bad for a while. Raji was playing. So????

I am not asking that you throw away your #90 jersey. But losing our 7th or 8th best Defensive player is not the end of the world.

He was playing out of position. Word is he had rededicated himself this year when he was playing his actual position and had a really good camp.

Just saying, I hope we can stop the run this year.

Yep. Instead of doing discount-double-check commercials, he was on the football field.
