Reading the words makes it "real". I thought from the start he and Peyton Manning should hang it up. The only way I was okay with Nick Collins coming back was if doctors said he was at no more risk now, than prior to the injury, essentially saying he's as good as new. I personally don't believe any doctor would say that for liability reasons. We haven't heard officially what any doctor has said yet so we can only speculate on what was said, or maybe more importantly ... what was not said.

I think the Packers did the same thing with Terrance Murphy. They released him and he then retired. I'm hoping Nick Collins retires and it would be good to see him on the sidelines as an assistant. I believe Darren Perry or Joe Whit Jr will be leaving after this season with a promotional position change on another team.

Groom Nick Collins as the new Safeties coach ...

Dammit! Packers did the right thing, but... dammit! I hope he doesn't try to play anywhere else...

And for the only part that dhazer cares about ... the Packers will have an extra $3.05 million on this seasons salary cap.

This is really sad. He was the best in the NFL, and represented our team well.

Draft Iloka. Ted, draft Iloka.

Pretty shocked that they didn't wait a few more days to announce this.

Eagerly awaiting how Dhazer will twist this into an "Evil Ted Thompson" moment, with the timing of this(serves the team in no significant way, in fact has a negative impact on the draft) its hard to say the release was anything other than in Nick's best interest.

Really sad to see him go, but hope he does retire at this point.

Terrance Murphy was injured against the Panthers in Carolina.
Nick Collins was injured against the Panthers in Carolina.


Both ended up being released by the Packers. Murphy disagreed with the Packers and wanted to continue playing.

Not entirely true. A team that covets a Safety and sees the Packers picking in front of them, might be willing to trade with the Packers to get the player instead. :)

Wasn't Robert Ferguson injured by Carolina, too? (I'm convinced that hit was a big part of why he never took the next step.)

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.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.

TheKanataThrilla: He's better than what we currently have backing up AR.
Smokey: A backup what, bartender ?
TheKanataThrilla: Looks like Manziel is getting cut. I'd be interested in him as a back-up.
Zero2Cool: Dunno.
Smokey: WILL WE HAVE A SB "CHAT", Zero2Cool ?
Mucky Tundra: I wonder if Stat Padford will follow Johnson to the retirement center?
uffda udfa: Winston Moss has a better all time win % than MM at 1000%. Let's make this permanent. :)
uffda udfa: We should take note and realize our Jordy might not be Jordy at 31 this season.
uffda udfa: I think Detroit has a way of doing that to players.
Zero2Cool: Calvin is retiring at age 30, just like the great Barry Sanders.
uffda udfa: He'd be 31 just like Jordy but his body is done.
uffda udfa: Sources: Calvin Johnson told Lions he's retiring.
