I think the Packers need to add some nasty back to Lambeau Field, and take back their long lost HFA. Enough with the frumpy old ladies who just want to sit in the park and watch a ball game. Green Bay needs an attitude change, in every aspect of what they do. "Go Pack Go, Eh!" Cute, but hardly menacing…

I mean, Bruce Irvin and Marshawn Lynch weren't "Packer People," and they just won the SB…



I was at the Cleveland game. Everyone around us stood and applauded JerMike. You just had an over zealous flunky as an usher.

stop with the packers people crap. Do you have some sort of credible information that GB wasn't interested in those guys or something because they weren't "packer people" No you don't because GB did try to get Lynch here. So much for that idea.

What is your problem?

A half hearted attempt by Ted Thompson, to me, does not automatically translate to "trying." I guess it does to you.

You don't know what attempts were made lol. Either way the fact is they were interested in him which makes the packer people statement complete bullshit. People take the packer people thing too far it isn't a thing as much as some people act like it's a thing.

Quote:
Packers G.M. Ted Thompson agreed with a lot of Green Bay fans: He thought Marshawn Lynch could improve the Packers.

Thompson just didn’t want Lynch as badly as the Seahawks did.

Pete Doughtery of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports Thompson was “in on the bidding” for Lynch before Seattle acquired him. The Seahawks ultimately gave up a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a sixth-round pick in 2012 that could escalate to a fifth-rounder.

I agree with Florio that the Packers should have made a play for Lynch, but it’s not a devastating non-move. The Packers, like the Patriots, are a matchup-based pass-first team that will use a running back committee. They don’t need to feed a back 20 times a game. Brandon Jackson can handle passing downs well and John Kuhn is a solid enough option on running downs.

Certainly the Packers could use more depth at running back and a spark at the position would be nice. But their troubles at running back matter less than finding some offensive line consistency and locating a pass rush outside of Clay Matthews.

Packers G.M. Ted Thompson isn’t into splashy moves. That doesn’t stop speculation about them in Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers was asked about the possibility of the Packers trading for his old college teammate Marshawn Lynch following Ryan Grant’s season-ending injury.

“Bring him on,” Rodgers said, via Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “He’s a great player.”

In a shocking development, Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports has been stumping for the Packers to rescue Lynch, his beloved former Cal Bear. The move makes sense on many levels until you read Buffalo’s asking price.

Silver reports the Bills turned down a third-round pick and a player for Lynch in the offseason and showed no interest when a team called about Lynch as recently as last week. I don’t need sources in Green Bay to know Thompson would rather talk about his personal life in a press conference than give up a third-round pick for Lynch. It won’t happen.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/09/15/aaron-rodgers-on-marshawn-lynch-bring-him-on/

Seattle traded a 4th round pick, along with a conditional 5th or 6th round selection the following year.

You call not beating that deal trying? I don't. And our running game was a clusterfuck from 2011 on till we got Lacy. That was a missed opportunity.

2009 Season
Following his guilty plea on misdemeanor weapons charges during the 2009 offseason, Lynch met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for a disciplinary hearing. Lynch had been arrested in Culver City, California, for having a gun in his backpack in the trunk of a car he was occupying, a crime in California.[19] On April 9, the NFL announced that Lynch would be suspended for the Bills' first three games for violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy.[20] Lynch appealed the league's suspension on May 14 in an attempt to have it reduced or nullified, only to have it upheld by Goodell later on August 3. When interviewed on the topic, Lynch has said that he was not surprised when the suspension was upheld, and that he loves playing too much and will try to keep himself out of situations in which there is a risk of being suspended. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshawn_Lynch

also:

Quote:
The deal was made two weeks before the NFL trade deadline, and marks a turnaround in philosophy for the Bills, who said last spring they had no intention of trading him. Lynch had been seeking a fresh start after his reputation in Buffalo took a hit following his off-field troubles.

In June 2008, he pleaded guilty to a traffic violation and admitted to driving off after striking a female pedestrian with his car near Buffalo's downtown bar district.

In March 2009, Lynch pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge in Los Angeles, after police discovered a semiautomatic handgun in a backpack of the trunk of a parked car Lynch was sitting in.

That's what his market value was at the time (he wasn't exactly lighting it up in buffalo) hence no one else apparently offering more. Even being interested in him sort of debunks that they weren't interested in him because of not being packers people nonsense.

Wow. You clearly know nothing about the subject. He went to the Pro Bowl in 2008 after rushing for over 1000 yds. Ran into trouble in 2009, was suspended, then demoted. Ankle sprain kept him out of the beginning of 2010, and he was on his way out the door, just in time for the trade deadline.

BTW, it was Buffalo. Perennial idiots of the NFL. Ted could have stolen him for a 3rd round pick…. But, continue on with your circular argument with yourself.

Hmmmm. Alex Green or Marshawn Lynch… Who would I rather have...

He was coming off 17 previous combined games with less than 600 yards hence the lowered stock clearly I know nothing lol. Are you saying around a 4th round pick wasn't his market value at the time? Many teams would give up a 1st round pick to get the production Seattle has out of him but that doesn't change the fact that he wasn't worth a 1st round pick to any team in 2010. That's not the point anyways, the point is you claiming the Packers weren't interested in him because of the foolish notion of not being Packers people despite the fact that they clearly WERE interested in him on some level regardless of "Packers people"

Yeah, well being the tight ass that cost us Lynch also cost us Randy Moss in 07 that might have netted us another Super Bowl. For all the frugalness that ends up helping us, it sure has kicked us in the nutz too.

Would having Moss helped this team beaten the Giants and Patriots? I mean, Favre was an ice cube in the second half vs the Giants and Giants dline mauled us and the Patriots and our front wasn't as good as theirs. Plus has Moss ever had a big game in the playoffs?

Edit: Forgot to mention, does Randy Moss know how to play CB? Because I remember Al Harris getting abused by Plexico Burress (guy with off the field issues, not PP material!)

I'm taken aback by our loss of toughness and inspired play. We clearly don't have the same types of players on our D, as was on display with Seattle.


Seattle's D is good, but they seemed to be pretty healthy. And here's, IMO the major deciding factor in that game: Peyton overprepares himself for big games, then gets overly tense and shits himself.

What we say in the Superbowl this year was FOUR solid quarters of Mike McCarthy LULL. Tense up, think too much, be tentative, never get into a rhythmn, shit yourself repeatedly.

Archie Manning was a great player, stuck on a shitty team for his entire career. His sons are his revenge on the NFL. It just means too much to Peyton Manning. He can't relax and just play in those situations.

Neither Charles Woodson nor Koren Robinson were "Packer People." Then again, one might say Jolly isn't either.
