The Packers had a rough year defensively in 2013 as injuries took several key players away from a unit that struggled to stop just about every opponent that came their way. As a result, head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that the "defense is going to change some' for the 2014 season. McCarthy didn't delve...

I'm not going to be holding my breath. SSALY. Just get rid of the lazy fat asses and the light in the asses who can't tackle and I'll be happy.

The changes that are coming:

1. Packers will draft at least two defensive players in first three rounds. All will get us all enthusiastic and we'll argue about their potential to develop for three years.
2. Some late round picks/post-draft rookie FAs will light up minicamps/training camp, and we'll get all excited and they'll get lost on special teams and the inactive list.
3. Next year this time we'll be debating the "potential" of different players as we debate the wisdom of putting all the eggs in the draft-and-develop basket.

Kinda pessimistic, dontcha think?

1. It's pretty much a slam dunk - 2 of 3, I'd guess 3 of 3 first draft picks. We were right to be excited about Datone Jones; I hope/think he justifies it next season - why? It's not uncommon for a D Lineman to take a year or two or three to reach his peak. Wasn't Daniels a 3rd round pick? Doing that good or better this time with LB picks might be enough if we can solve Safety in free agency.

2. That's about what you expect from late rounders and UDFAs, isn't it? Any more is gravy. The only one last year I saw much in was Mulumba, and there's still decent hope he amounts to something.

3. I don't recall much debate last off season about scrapping or seriously augmenting draft and develop - if it was going on, I was on the anti- side then. Hell, I still am if you're talking any change that's really significant.

We're CLOSE, real close. As the evil one correctly stated, addition by subtraction - just getting RID of Raji and Pickett will do wonders. That, getting/staying reasonably healthy, adding one Safety - either FA or Collins, and getting a couple early round LBs, nothing more extreme than that will do it. The question is, will Ted Thompson do even that little bit?

Anyone who gets excited about the prospect of late rounders and UDFAs making a big impact in their first year is only setting themselves up for disappointment. It can happen but it is rare.

As Packer fans maybe its the only thing we can hang our hopes on because A) Ted Thompson has not been a big player in free agency and B) our track record for first round picks has not been stellar when injuries and such are factored in. That leaves us with a high performing late round pick or UDFA to look to as an impact player.

I agree with you about Jones and Daniels, This may be the year (how long have we been saying that though) that 2 guys step up and who knows, maybe a first rounder can actually contribute more than very spot duty.

Of course it is also difficult to discount the potential for SSALY.

I guess I choose to be optimistic. I don't expect a big FA signing but I am hopeful for a moderate one, maybe a starter at Safety or DL or TE or center or LB or whatever position. If we can land 1 starter better than a guy we have we are already ahead of the game. If we can sign Shields and a few other of our own key free agents (I'd like to see J. Jones, Starks and EDS but I'll let you argue your own guys) it will keep us strong on offense and finally if Bulaga and D. Jones and Sherrod can contribute for a full season like we hoped they would when drafted and if Daniels can keep improving I think we are looking pretty good. Add to that a nice crop of rookies and I think we get better, maybe even much better.

I know there are a lot of IFs in there and the last few years have not really given us any indication that these IFs will come to fruition but like I said I like to think on the positive side. I suppose I could go into the season thinking we are going to suck and then if we do well I will not be disappointed but I can't do that. I have to look on the bright side.

So, the defense is going to change? Good. I would love to see them mix it up a bit more and be less predictable. The only way that happens though is by changing out a good number of players: SS, NT, DE, ILB, OLB - at the very least.

Thinking Brad Jones carries any instincts needed at ILB is crazy. The weak showing of Raji should mean the door. MD Jennings should not be allowed back onto this team, I don't care if he plays for free. Morgan Burnett either has to move back to FS, or we get a proven vet to pair with him. No more CJ Wilson. If we re- sign Pickett, it should be as a backup. House? What has he done to earn his keep?

Change out these positions with upgrades and we are automatically better. I think doing so this year is impossible via draft alone.

Brad Jones can cover. He's also got versatility to play OLB if needed. This staff LOVES versatility.

He couldn't cover last season. But, he got paid… and promptly mailed it in. I would cut his ass tomorrow. That is NOT what we need at ILB.

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
