This was kind of painful to watch at moments. How many times does the guy have to say the same thing?

Glad he's back and looking forward to seeing him play.

Damn, everyone of those reporters could have had their soundbite after he answered the first question.
I liked what he said about The Packers having his back last year, he will have theirs this year.

NOW LEAVE HIM THE HELL ALONE SO HE CAN BECOME A SUPERSTAR!

I hate reporters. If my kid came up to me and asked "Dad, I want to be a reporter or a serial killer which would you prefer" I'd have a hard time answering that question. I'd probably encourage the reporter track unless they wanted to be a serial killer who killed reporters. Then I'd probably push the serial killer route.

Seems like he has his head together and is ready to rock and roll.
Good for him!
Glad he did what was necessary to get to this point. It would have been easy to turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. He did it the right way.

Does any body remember if he slid in the draft last year or did he go about where he was pegged?

According the bleacher report, he was projected in the 4th round.

Sounds like a great guy.

I don't mind the reporters ragging on about his year off. I can't imagine he hasn't been prepared for that by the Packers PR-team. Everyone saw this coming. I'm almost certain they evaluated him mentally before letting the press do their thing.

It's nice to see them asking about something that might actually further a good cause for a change.

This is a guy who plays the manliest sport there is at one of the manliest, gritty positions on the field. If he can open up about mental health like that, anyone can. Let them write tons of articles about it and get it out in the spotlight if both he can the Packers think he can carry it. I'd rather read about this than Antonio Brown's bullshit.

Great point.

I think men having the courage to shine light on the issue is a good thing. I also think the Michael Phelps ads for mental health are excellent.

Its hard not to root for the kid...I really hope he is a success in life and for the Packers

That's a very good way to look at it but I think it says far more about Cole and even the people who prepared him than it does about the reporters. How many times does a person need to answer the same question.

I do think he handled it very well and I can't wait to see how performs on the field. I'm just afraid his year off will become the focal point of future interviews and will be brought up whenever he faces the media. "you got off to a slow start this season, do you think the year off affected you?" "You got off to a great start, how much of that do you attribute to your taking a year off?" "my lawn has brown patches do you think it has anything to do with your year off?" Maybe I'm wrong and he has put an end to it but I'm not optimistic.

That's very true. Best situation would've been one question, him answering he's doing alright now and then let bygones be bygones. That'll never happen, though.

I'll rephrase. The manliest real sport. Bull riding is one step above volcano surfing and limbo skating.

I'm high on Madison. Pretty sure he can play both positions. Let's see what he's got.

If he doesn’t do well, then the questions will come “is it because of his mental health?”
Remember Favre’s admitting about his drug addiction? How much he had to put up with from the media and rival fans? Only his winning the super bowl shut everyone up.
Had he tanked, you can bet it would have gone on and on.

I expected Cheesey to come back with, "he has all his chickens in order, but does he have all his ducks in a row".😁

Nope, because even though each reporter recrafted their same question over and over and over again to get a quote, they couldn't. That is the part of reporting I do not like, regardless of topic.

KRK (2h) : a truly great man, and great Packer. RIP Coach Starr
Zero2Cool (4h) : Bart Starr has passed away.
wpr (6h) : Happy birthday NSD
Cheesey (8h) : They never made adjustments against the Raptors. When something doesn’t work, change things up. A 15 point lead and you can’t win? Just plain awful.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Raptors played helluva good series. Bucks gotta adjust more. Use pick an roll. Good season, came short.
Nonstopdrivel (17h) : You let your opponent go on a 29-3 run in the third quarter, and you're not going to win many games in any league.
gbguy20 (17h) : welp
Nonstopdrivel (18h) : It's mind boggling that a professional basketball team could be so bad from the two-point range.
gbguy20 (18h) : the tides have turned
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : The only reason they're even in this game is because they're dominating on the boards.
Zero2Cool (19h) : They've tried last several possessions and missed three times.
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : It's obnoxious watching the Bucks refuse to play inside the arc.
gbguy20 (24-May) : the rocks career ascension since the 90s has been amazing
Zero2Cool (24-May) : IT DOESN'T MATTAH!!
Zero2Cool (24-May) : As The Rock would say ...
wpr (24-May) : we 3-4 or 4-3?
Zero2Cool (24-May) : yet, some are gonna ask we 3-4 or 4-3
Zero2Cool (24-May) : 2018 the league average for base personnel on defense fell all the way to 25%
Zero2Cool (24-May) : You wouldn't have wanted me in chat last night.
gbguy20 (24-May) : solid
Nonstopdrivel (24-May) : Anyone going to get their butts in the chat room for this game?
TheKanataThrilla (24-May) : lol
gbguy20 (23-May) : Still no bye week listed Kevin. Don't you know what you are doing? young idiot
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Only thing I can guess is how Falcons used Taylor Gabriel.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : if anything, they like his open field ability and figure if they can get the ball to him in the flat from backfield = win
Zero2Cool (23-May) : More so thinking it is just not leaving any stone unturned.
Cheesey (23-May) : I’m not questioning you Zero, just trying to figure it out. Is Davis that good that they are trying so hard to find a spot where he can play?
Cheesey (23-May) : Why would they try a last ditch effort? I mean, if they have to try THAT hard, is he really worth it?
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Keep in mind the quick little fast guys that the Rams, Falcons used. They might see Trevor in that role.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : More than likely, this is a last ditch effort to find a spot for Trevor.
Cheesey (23-May) : I agree gbguy. He must have a relative in a high position on the Packers!
gbguy20 (22-May) : except ty was actually good (at both positions) where Trevor has never shown a reason to be on the 53. how he has been here for so long escapes me
wpr (22-May) : It's the Montgomery experiment all over again.
gbguy20 (22-May) : Trevor Davis practicing as a RB during OTAs. what the hell
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Folks usually say the series don't start until road team wins
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : There was a stat that indicated that home crowd was most important in basketball of the big 4 sports. Not sure why.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Raptors are simply better team top/down, and two of their main guys are hobbled.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : And didn't learn from past mistakes and lost Game 4.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Bucks should have lost Game 1, got lucky. Dominated Game 2. Screwed up in Game 3.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : I don't think they are gonna make it to the Finals. No effort, no heart last night.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Don't panic Cheesey, series will go 7 games. NBA needs that to happen.
Cheesey (22-May) : Bucks stunk it up tonight. If they keep this up, they will be WATCHING the championship on TV.
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : Congrats Blues. Stanley Cup bound.
gbguy20 (22-May) : i c u cheesey
Cheesey (21-May) : Yeah....would have been good “JU JU”! LOL!
Zero2Cool (21-May) : Should have taken JuJu Smith-Schuster instead of Josh Jones
Zero2Cool (21-May) : " So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the reps. I think everyone in here is comfortable what Davante is about."
Zero2Cool (21-May) : LaFleur says Davante Adams is present, but he did not practice: "Just precautionary, and ... we do have some young receivers. So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the r
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won another Eastern Conference Championship in '74.
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won it all in 1971.
