All OL. I'd like to see them bring in a few OL coaches for tryouts...

To be fair, this team has invested two 1st round picks on offensive linemen who have missed large amounts of time. In their place, the Packers are using a rookie 4th round pick at LT and a second year undrafted guy at RT. Both have performed pretty well.

Do I like Campen? No.
Do I think he is as bad as everyone seems to make him out to be? No.

Quit trying to throw facts and logic into these threads, just doesn't work well with those who will always need something to complain about.

Once again, because of injury, The Packers are forced to play guys that in all probability should be backing up other players with more experience.

Bahktiari and Barclay held up pretty good, considering the guys they were going up against.

Hyde and McMillian on the other hand were completely lost, but, I expect a better showing from them this week, because they did get the extended playing time, IN A REAL GAME!!!

The hole in the offense is at C. When you watch a team that can run the ball, which is our main weakness, LG,C,RG is what gets the job done. Unfortunately Our Center cannot keep up with our Guards. He is OK in pass protection mostly but is lacking in run blocking.

No doubt we lack at safety right now. Our coverage over the middle is a glaring issue, which we saw exploited quite a lot in SF. With that said I think we would have no more success (immediately at least) by bringing in FA's at safety.

A lot of growing pains in our secondary, especially without having guys like Woodson or Collins to pick up some of the slack.](*,)

For those of you who are looking for ted to replace some of these DB's you should read this article

and you should listen to the podcast in this article

Both of these news articles are in the feed, didn't see any reason to start a new thread.

PFT

Quote:
After veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield was cut by the Seahawks, he quickly announced a plan to retire.

That plan has not yet been formalized.


How would Winfield look at S?

Then again, there might be extra incentive to retire:

Quote:
Another question for Winfield arises not from filing retirement papers but from behaving as if he’s truly retired. All retired players (i.e., players not employed by a team and not seeking employment) at the time Judge Anita Brody gives preliminary approval to the concussion settlement will be eligible for compensation if he has or develops a severe cognitive impairment.

Assuming Winfield is healthy, retiring now becomes insurance against the development of dementia, Alzheimer’s, or ALS. While filing retirement papers isn’t required to prove that a player is retired, it wouldn’t hurt.


Think Ted would match a possible future settlement?

Dont agree with the article. Its like hes essentially saying we put more pressure on the dbs with this gameplan therefore our best safetywouldnt help? Makes no sense to me ands seems backward. With the gameplan the dbs wereextra important.

You don't have to agree.

I guess these guys put a lot into breaking down every play and player and it seems McMillian and Hyde had bad days(which can be accepted due to the fact they are young and will have plenty of growing pains).

As far as Jennings, he gave up a td, but his play other than that graded out pretty solid.

Love this day and age of instant analysis of plays and instant judgement of players.

2 reasons you won't see me in game day chat when game starts, too much negativity for my taste, win or lose I enjoy sitting back and watching 2 GREAT football teams go at each other, and that is what we had last Sunday.

That's EXACTLY what happened, as I have said a couple of times (although Burnett might have helped). Capers devised a plan to stop Kaepernick from running. It worked - use all your linebackers in containment, none in coverage and almost never blitzing. Unfortuantely, that CURE did put too much pressure on the DBs to cover. I honestly can't think of a better solution. Can you?

As for this thread, IMO they correctly identified the problem area. They couldn't change O Line coaches in the middle of the season - what team ever did that successfully? [grin1] (Badgers)

Our ILBs were better than I expected (still not much good), and we probably have backups better than our two starters - no need for tryouts.

I wish they would bring in a couple of kick returners. Unlike almost every other position, a guy can be plugged in there almost immediately if he seems to be better.

Sure. I can think of a cure. Keep the offense off the field. Give them fewer chances.

Or just keep up with that "no huddle" bullshit.
