Can Harrell play one of the DE position's in the new 34. I don't want to see him anywhere near the NT postition. That's for Pickett and his rookie backup.

Athletically, he probably has more potential than Jolly, but he doesn't have the heart. I'm just wondering if you guys think he can man up for once and be useful in the rotation?

If not, he will just go down in the Packer's ever growing list of first round disappointments.

This scout used to think so...

Quote:
While adding a nose tackle and an outside linebacker are the top two priorites, finding a solid defensive end to play opposite Cullen Jenkins is a close third. Filling this spot should be easier that the first two tasks, said the scout. In fact, I thought Justin Harrell was born to play this particular position when I watched him at the University of Tennessee. Unfortunately, he doesnt look like the same guy these days. Maybe the back will finally heal and hell be the answer, but right now hes a gigantic question mark. I guess you could probably get by with Jolly for a season, but Id want to do better.

Harrell could play DE or NT in 3-4. He's easily the second best NT the Packers have had since he's been draft, when he's healthy that is.

Harrell has more potential than about the whole team... but that doesn't mean jack if he's not healthy and if he can't bring it out. And it isn't because he doesn't have the heart that is non-sense.... it's health not heart.....

I say we sit Harrell this entire year. Let every bruise, sore, nick, scrap and paper cut fully heal and then UNLEASH him for a quarter in '10.

I don't know Beast, I can't but think he is Cleditus Hunt's first cousin. He has not shown up in any kind of football shape yet. I do hope you are right though.

I think he's getting a little bit of a bad rap.

I will say that it was on HIM that he didn't report in shape and hopefully he will learn a lesson there. The unfortunate thing is the back injury happened during rehab and he was supposedly working real hard to get on the field when that happened.

I don't think his heart is a problem. The guy tore his bicep muscle and played the next week against Florida before getting the surgery. That would take a special kind of heart and unreal threshold for pain to do.

If he goes through the offseason workout program and comes into the camps in shape HOPEFULLY this injury stuff is behind him. He knows more than anyone his chances are gettting slimmer to be in this league.

I just want to see him play when he's 100% healthy. Until we see that, we won't be able to tell what type of player he is on the field.

I hope he doesn't push it too far this offseason and throws out his back again...

It's hard to stay in shape with back problems. Pretty much limits any sort of exercise you do.

If you guys remember, he actually came into OTA's and Training Camp in the best shape of his life, but the back problems came back.

You can't do ANYTHING with a bad back.

Saying he has no heart is going too far. Unlike Cletidus, Harrell has character.

Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
