Linebacker Carl Bradford is the latest guy the Green Bay Packers have drafted who's ticked he didn't go earlier. Will he reverse the trend of underperformance?


How pissed is he? I can't shake the feeling that this guy is going to be a bust. But if he becomes a solid special teams player it won't be that bad.

Hopefully more so than Ricky Elmore.

Before I read the article I almost posted "Terrell Manning'' and then see they mentioned his name.

Pissed off chicken shit doesn't really mean much. Pissed off chicken salad (Aaron Rodgers)...well that gets me excited.

I think sometimes these kids come out of college, where they were the best on their teams, thinking they are going to be as big a deal in the NFL. There is a reason most don't go in the first round. I wonder if this is just another guy who doesn't really understand how much better EVERYONE is at this level.

Chip on the shoulder is good, and I hope it motivates him, but if he really thinks he's that good, he needs to outwork everyone to prove it.

Whether he develops into a player with a decent impact on the team or not.. I overall think we need more of this attitude on this club. It is okay to have a chip on your shcoulder... be a little pissed off. Better than some of the flat performances that we have seen sporatically over the last couple years.

Agreed. I like Daniels' bravado as well, so it's a good first step. Obviously he and other guys like Colt need to do more than say the right things, though.

They get their shot in about three weeks. Can't wait!

I was thinking that Bradford reminded me a little of Al Noga.

He should fit in pretty well with Daniels, who reminds me of John Randel.

Bradford and Hubbard are very interesting prospects. The outside linebacker position is always a favorite of mine to watch during the pre-season. Wondering if either of these guys becomes this offseason's Vic So'oto. Remember that guy!? He was popular for a week :)

So'oto! I loved that guy. What a game he had vs. KC in the pre-season. Just insanely good.

Bradford, based on measurables, has a high risk of busting especially at OLB position. I'm very surprised we took him to use him at OLB. ILB seems to make so much more sense based on what he is physically.

Like you, I can't wait to see who this year's UDFA darling is? That is one of the many reasons I love pre-season football.

It'll be interesting to see if they would cut Bradford, if he fails to impress during TC and preseason, without giving him a shot at ILB.

From my 2 minutes of research, the last top 5 round picks I could find that the Packers cut in the year they drafted him were Jamon Meredith and Ingle Martin (5th Rd). I'm assuming the Packers will do all they can to give Bradford a shot.

Yeah, the article and his statements really mean so little. We have to wait and see what he can do opposite Matthews. That's what I want to see, and if he cannot make an impact there, i think he can at ILB. I will be pulling for Bradford to be a force on the left side to start the season, with Perry moved to the right side backing up Matthews.

Chips on shoulders are a dime a dozen. All I want to see is great OLB play on that side of our front 7, something we have not seen in a very long time with any consistency.

I think we all have to wait to see how these guys play in pre-season.

With Ted standing pat at the ILB position, signing Peppers, holding on to Mike Neal, I am betting there will not be many situations where The Packers actually have Hawk and Jones/Lattimore or whoever ends up being the listed "starting" ILBr's on the field at the same time.

With so many teams using 3 sometimes 4 WR sets, and using the so called "hybrid" TE, H-Back, whatever term you want to use, I see The Packers dropping an extra Safety in(hello M. Hyde), or using Peppers on the inside.

The Packers base 3-4 defense, IMO, will not be seen much this year, and maybe Bradford will show he can be that LB who can move around, but I think this year he will be asked to do what he has shown he does best.....Rush The QB!!!!

steveishere (6h) : I don't think suspended players count toward the 53
uffda udfa (14h) : Incredible! Wilde's 53 man roster doesn't even have Datone Jones as "IN"...he's "looking good". Sad, a 3rd year 1st rounder isn't a lock f

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
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????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
