Just a though I had. With Brady going to Tampa, I imagine Winston will be out. How do y’all feel about him as a backup for us?

Gee....I don’t know.
Maybe having time to relax and learn behind Rodgers would work.

There is already a thread about this. We have two million left of spendable cap space left. Winston will probably command 10x that...

The team doesn't have enough cap space as it is to get them through the season... as all teams have in season hiring when injuries or trades hit... and $2 million is at least $4 million short (especially since the new CBA just raised minimum wage price)

They don't need to waste it more on an INT machine (unless his eye surgery, fixed that).

Um, also, Winston and his sexual assaults... (his eye surgery didn't fix that).

He MIGHT be a good one year project and trade or get a comp pick for... or might be a waste of time and space.

I'm finding they are at least double digit millions below the cap. Maybe this isn't factoring in the rookie deals?

This last part is what I'm referring to. On the surface we have room, but when you factor in where that money still has to go, we don't have much left.

The only other free agent I would like for us to sign is tight end Eric Ebron. Get everything else in the draft. WR, DT, OL, and another ILB.

The following is assuming the Packers will be going for comp picks once again next year like they are this year (or whenever said contract would run out)


I doubt Winston take it, but I'm at the point where I might say "screw it", offer him a lower offer with the pitch of

1) learning from Rodgers,
2) the idea that this same system has gotten the NFC teams to the Championship game the last two years.
3) That the Packers know how to deal with guys that throw a lot of TDs and INT and we recently put one in the NFL Hall Of Fame
4) Packers have a very talented team that got them to the NFC Championship Game
5) Sitting behind a future hall of famer can get you a big contract, see Teddy Bridgewater (and Saints already got their guy of the future, so).


Why? Because everything makes it sound like he's an extremely hard worker in the field but his vision had some questions marks and he recently had eye surgery.

Also because I'm guessing he could potentially fetch at least a 4th round comp pick (or better), if he has a decent bounce back year.

Hard to bounce back when you're on the bench.

Very very true. Though, Rodgers isn't getting any younger and his OTs are getting worse...

His backup might not be on the bench, the entire season... such as if we're up by 30 or something else might happen.

Offensive Tackles, Packers lost Bulaga to FA and the new guys isn't to Bulaga's level.

And some have been saying Bak had a down year, though I'm thinking adjusting to the new system and the new system not fitting him as well are a large part to it. He should get better as he gets more used to it, but he might not be able to match his previous years greatness in this system as I think the Mike McCarthy system was PERFECT for his style/strength of playing.

I continue to advocate taking a pass on Winston. IMO, he is an interception machine.

I would rather take my chances in the draft or sign a successful QB in FA when 12 is done....or both.

I think interceptions are correctable.

I know you're being facetious.

I want to say I think McCarthy did pretty damn well with Favre. When McCarthy was hired he made Favre sit and watch all 29 interceptions he threw the previous season. Favre also mentioned this saying he was like "man, you know I had some GOOD throws too, geesh" while laughing. The two seasons under McCarthy Favre threw 18 picks, then 15 picks.

Cheesey (14-May) : Does that mean I should be PUNished?🤪
Nonstopdrivel (12-May) : I'd say most of your puns recently have been more of a stretch than string cheese, but Nostridamus was a masterpiece. I wouldn't nominate it for a Pullitzer anyway.
Cheesey (12-May) : LOL Wayne! I appreciate your comment. You and Non made me feel my “cheesiness” is still worth something here.
wpr (12-May) : I will apologize Cheesey. I saw it and considered it to be the typical cheese spread. I failed to recognize the masterpiece of pun it truly is. mea culpa

Nonstopdrivel (9-May) : Filling out background check applications is so fucking depressing.
KRK (9-May) : Beast, where did you see that...re Watson/Bears.
beast (9-May) : And PFT pulls back information from before his draft (including his own words), to suggest Watson might currently be mistaken.
beast (9-May) : Deshaun Watson tweets "The bears NEVER ONCE talked to me.." when aruging against the Bears evaluating him... on a discussion about teams choicing QB based on race.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : Yup. Make it like week 11 or something. Have some Hall of Fame induction thing or something.
Nonstopdrivel (8-May) : I would rather the entire league took off the same week.
Cheesey (8-May) : I don’t like it either, Zero. But there’s not much we can do about it.
