"And yet, defenses are paying attention to him. Against the Texans, who gave up six touchdown passes to Rodgers, the perfect illustration came on Rodgers’ second of three TD passes to Jordy Nelson, a 21-yarder that made it 21-7. (For a brilliant breakdown of the entire play, read ex-Packers safety Matt Bowen’s piece on National Football Post. Bowen is as good as it gets when it comes to explaining complex NFL concepts to the rest of us.)"
I agree, let's cut his ass. That way the opposing Defensive Coordinator has one less weapon to worry about.

I think a thread should be started listing the players that members of this forum wanted "cut", because "in their opinion" they are either overpaid, underachieving, or just plain "suck".

We can call it the "knee jerk reaction thread"

I'll let Zero decide whether this thread should be started, but here is my list from the last few years.

1. Jarret Bush(this guy should have never been on the roster)
2. A.J. Hawk(total underachiever)
3. Donald Driver(this guy should have retired 3 years ago)
4. James Jones(guy can't catch)
5. Charles Woodson(way overpaid)
6. B.J. Raji( great 1st year, but hasn't been the same since)
7. Sam Shields(one year wonder)
8. Greg Jennings(can't stay healthy anymore)
9. Jermicheal Finley(talks too much)

That's a start, just a few I remember.

One more thing, ask yourself this.

Where would The Packers be today without the players listed above?

Last year? Arguably the Superbowl.

I want to hear your argument,

Packers went 15-1 in the regular season, Giants flat outplayed them in the playoff game.

Any team turns the ball over 4 times and odds are pretty good they are going to lose.
(unless of course they are playing The Cardinals, really Matty "ice" 5 int.!!!! You killed me in FFl this week)LOL

Shit happens.

Statements like the one you just made just validates my reason for starting this thread.

No GM, coach, or player is at the top of their game every single week.

Ok, rephrase my statement, and I will argue it. Include the names of players concerned.

I avoided the site completely on Saturday for this reason.. emotions running in full.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.
