We've still got Bostick.

Although I guess they don't think he's ready yet.

Green Bay football is reality football not fantasy football.
The reality is Ted Thompson is General Manager of the Packers.
Why waste your time fantasizing about these trades.
Not going to happen folks!


yoop it looks like some guys enjoy watching a pole dancer for 2 hours then go home and taking an ice cold shower. [shrug]

They should give Bostick some playing time, cause the other guys aren't doing jack. I've watched Taylor and Quarless miss gimme balls and of course Finley always has his moments. Our offense required production from the TE position.

We don't need to trade for anybody. We got depth at every position except Saftey. Saftey I would trade for. But the Packers never will.

You make that sound like a bad thing... if a player is making plays then they should be getting the ball. And you can have more than one TE on the field at a time.



Because they can't catch the ball... and not making plays when they get their chances. Lets be honest, Gonzales and Finley both would.



If they are throwing the ball to Gonzo a lot then Finley will become like the rest of our guys. Mike McCarthy does not run an offense like Bill B. did with Hernandez and Gronkowski. If we had Finley and Gonzales one of them would be wasted. Frankly I would rather have the draft pick than a guy who would be done after this year (most likely.) Especially if that guy won't have much of an impact which I don't think he would.

No different than bringing in a legit #4 WR


You're right on the money, it'd be nice to be able to play Gonzo, Finley, Nelson and Cobb right now with Jones being out and Ross cut.

Sounds like you're saying Mike McCarthy doesn't know how to use two good TEs.

They should have him practicing at WR because that's what he is. A huge, slow WR (which is fast for a TE). And he could help fill in for Jones if he's injury for a while.

I know Cleveland isn't trading him, but Gordon would look especially good in Green and Gold at this point.

I strongly doubt the Browns would be willing to trade Gordon.


Giants seem to be listening to offers for WR Hakeem Nicks, who they haven't been able to work out a long term deal with (at least not yet).


Jags seem to be listening to all offers on any of their players, sounds like they're trying to trade RB Jones-Drew ("at the right price"Wink and they have seem to have a love/hate relationship with WR Justin Blackmon. Love his talent but sounds like they might be having some problems with him off the field. I doubt they'd be willing to trade him, because they seem to love his potential, but maybe they could ask about him.

Yeah, I'm just saying it would be nice! Justin Blackmon is a beast, I can't imagine him going anywhere. He could very likely be the Packers best WR if he was on this team. Nicks is good, but he's pretty disappointing a lot of time, too. But still, he'd obviously be better Boykin et al.

Hopefully James Jones can come back soon. If so, the Packers still have weapons, especially if they can keep improving their run game. I wouldn't expect any big moves if Jones comes back. If both are done for the season, it's going to be a long rest of the season, probably.

Blackmon or Gordon would be awesome in Green Bay but I highly doubt either of them will be going anywhere. I know the Jags and Browns front office haven't been stellar but I doubt even they would be stupid enough to trade away their best playmakers.

If we get any Cleveland WR maybe we can trade for Charles Johnson.

Cleveland is rebuilding. They traded away Trent Richardson.

They specifically said they aren't trading Josh Gordon, and considering he's putting up big numbers every week, I don't doubt them. Now, I'm sure they would for the right price, but it would probably take a first for it to happen. They spent a high 2nd round pick on him, anyway, so it really wouldn't make any sense for them to trade him, considering he's so young.

Richardson was not the player that Gordon is. Yeah they are rebuilding but I doubt they would want to start totally from scratch. Gordon is their biggest playmaker on offense by far. Without Richardson the Browns need at least two pieces to their offensive puzzle (QB and RB) they would be stupid to trade Gordon and have to find a third. Espescially when they still need a legit #2 WR.

I'm not saying they won't do it, just that they would be stupid if they did.
