The Packers felt comfortable letting James Jones go in free agency because they thought Jarrett Boykin was ready to move up the depth chart after a strong showing while filling in for the injured Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson at different points in 2013. Nothing that they've seen this spring or summer has changed that...

Good news to hear about Boykin, even though it is what I would expect McCarthy to say at this time of year regardless.

I still feel that GB is going to feel effects from not having either Jennings or Jones this year. Regardless of how good Boykins now is, there's still a drop off at number 4. And in this offense, that is more significant than with other teams. Especially since our "best" option at TE is now R Rodgers.

This along with two members of our secondary saying JB is the hardest WR to cover in practice and with how good he was last year makes me feel like he's legit. I don't know if he'll reach the production he had last year though because I think Jordy, Lacy, and Cobb are going to all take a ton of the action but he should be able to at least get close.

That's what happens when you set your Madden difficulty to Rookie. Give Novice a try and then come talk.

So you DON'T think they're gonna run Eddie Lacy more than they're gonna pass?

What? The lowest pass attempts in the league last year was 417. There's no way in hell Lacy is getting over 400 carries, at least I hope not.

Yes they are going to run Eddie lacy, but he can't carry the ball every play.

I guess you haven't been watching what has been going on.

Packers goal is to run 75 plays a game, plenty of balls to go around.

I'm sure you will be calling it stat-whoring, I'm gonna call it good, solid game planning.

Keep the opposing teams defense on the field!!!!!

You've been screaming about TOP for years now, what the hell do you want??

So scoring quickly without many plays is stat whoring and running too many plays is also stat whoring.[laughing]

How is that Stat- whoring??????

You scream and yell about the Defenses deficiencies, yet if The Offensd runs 75 plays and keeps The defense off the field, you call it Stat-Whoring.

WTH do you want???????

Chip Kelly's offense is not about burning clock. It's about running plays as quickly as possible. Mike's version of that is to throw deep as quickly and often as possible.

I guess you haven't watched the games, The Packers 1's were on the field for 6 series last game and threw the ball deep 1 time. I think I read where they ran 49 plays in those 6 series.

You've been harping on this for years, and have been wrong for years, you just can't admit it.

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.
