Oh they go deep.. not arguing the depth of our routes.. but we don't have a guy that is a burner, someone that scares the defense with his speed. Someone that will force the back end of the defense to adjust if he is running a fly route.


I just picked a random point to let you know how much I enjoy and respect your contributions. If I gave you applause every time I agreed with you, people would talk, lol

You are the bomb, Shawn.

Jets (Santonio Holmes), Bills (Steve Johnson), Dolphins (Brian Hartline), Browns (Josh Gordon), Jaguars (Laurent Robinson), Titans (Kenny Britt), Raiders (Denarius Moore), Chargers (Malcom Floyd), Eagles (DeSean Jackson), Redskins (Pierre Garcon), Rams (Danny Amendola), & Seahawks (Sidney Rice).

Those are the definite teams off the top of my head. I believe there's another half a dozen worth debating. For example, I think Cobb and Nelson are better than Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. The game is changing. You don't need an outside threat as your go-to guy. Teams are attacking the middle of the field with a slot-man. The Packers have done so the better part of the last six years with Greg Jennings. Take 2010 as an example. Green Bay won a Super Bowl that year with Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and James Jones.

Jermichael Finley was hurt and Donald Driver was well on his way in decline. You're telling me that the drop off from Jennings to Cobb is that significant.

I don't agree with that. The only thing Jennings does significantly better than Cobb is route running, which he's among the best in the league at doing. Cobb is more explosive, though.

Two years ago, Jordy Nelson had an amazing season. Pro Football Outsiders actually rated it among the best of all-time. People seem to forget about it.


I don't agree with every receiver on that list. Santonio Holmes doesn't belong there, DeSean Jackson/Jeremy Maclim I'm not sure about, Justin Blackmon was dangerous already and will only become better (rather than Robinson), guys like Rice and Britt have better skillsets, they're just injured a lot, so I guess I'll give you those...

That still leaves you with a whole lot of teams that have a better situation. A whole lot more than we're than.

And no, I'm not saying that the drop-off from Jennings to Cobb is that big, per say, but I do feel like Jennings could man that outside position better than Cobb can. Jennings did pull the nr. 1 corner most of the time if I recall correctly, though, often leaving Nelson on the nr. 2, where he racked up some pretty good stats. Yes, he held his own when Jennings went down, but that just didn't seem to be the case this year.

And I certainly don't see how James Jones is the answer to our problem at nr. 1 receiver or how he'll dominate nr. 2 guys.

This is not the history I remember. Sterling Sharpe retired after the ‘94 season, which was Favre’s first really good year. Following that season, Favre won his three MVP awards with Robert Brooks and Antonio Freeman as his go-to receivers. The Packers also had outstanding tight ends in Mark Chmura and Keith Jackson.

Javon Walker had one 1,000-yard season with the Packers. It came in ‘04, which was a typical Favre season under Sherman. He threw a lot of touchdowns, but also a lot of interceptions.

Regarding the draft, this draft is thin at wide receiver. I don't think there's one player that comes in and makes an immediate impact. I guess maybe Patterson, but any selection of a wide receiver is part of the long-term future of the Packers. You trade up to draft Patterson, and you're preparing for when Nelson and Jones depart when their contract is up. In other words, it's an economic argument, which to Ted Thompson’s credit, I think he saw coming when he drafted Randall Cobb two years ago. Just substitute Player A for Cobb and Nelson or Jones for Jennings. That’s where I think wide receiver enters the radar.


Fair enough. Favre's play didn't explode and I didn't mean to state that it did (reading back, I did, though). The rest of what I said still stands, though. You get that one guy who pulls coverages his way and who just grabs what's thrown at him, even those desperation passes.

We even tried to create our own guy like that in Finley at the start of the 2011 season, throwing every second pass his way.

I'm not advocating a trade-up and I'm not saying that our draft pick will become an AJ Green-like instant impact player. I'm just saying that, would an Allen or a Patterson fall down to us, you pick him up directly. Gives us the chance to let Jones walk next year, as well, as he might just overvalue himself after this TD catch season.

I like this kid Jarrett Boykin. He reminds me of JAMES JONES!, and everyone should know by now how I feel about that, Laugh as I prefer to remind everyone CONSTANTLY that I HAD HIM in the TEETH of you NAYSAYERS Razz I don't even think Boykin is slow like many say.

I can't believe Rock is getting off a book-end to CMIII to think WR. I'm not seeing it. We are still good at WR, imo.



I'd still like another OLB, but I can't imagine Ted being a guy who would invest yet another first rounder in one position after Matthews a couple of years ago and Perry just last year.

I'd love drafting like the Giants, but I don't think it's realistic to think Ted would do that. Although that's just a hunch that's impossible to back up.

That is an impressive stat.. Jones caught more TD's than the top 3 (arguably) receivers combined.

James Jones was a touchdown-scoring machine last season, leading the entire NFL with 14 touchdown receptions. His 784 receiving yards were nowhere near the top of the league, but elite wideouts Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson didn't even combine to match Jones' incredible touchdown total.

I'm hoping Charles Johnson is a diamond in the rough. I really like his measurables. I know as a 7th rounder it's a long shot, but maybe he can be the next DD. I've got my finger crossed!!!

I've had this odd feeling... with 7th round pick (#216 overall) WR Charles Johnson getting all this love from Packer fans every where... while 7th round pick (#224 overall) WR Kevin Dorsey is getting no attention...

The odd feeling I've had is that Dorsey will be the one sticking around longer... just simply based on the fact, it seems like often times when a late round pick is getting that much love from fans for every ever reason they don't last very long (because they dropped that far for a reason...)

It such seems like the late round picks with the most hype from the fans are always one of the first to go... such examples are...

2012: OT Andrew Datko

2011: DE/OLB Ricky Elmore

2009: OT Jamon Meredith

2007: WR David Clowney

2007: RB DeShawn Wynn (he did help, but he was gone sooner than his talent, but then again that's why he drafted to the 7th in the first place)

2006: WR Cory Rodgers

Charles Johnson could be the steal of a very very good draft.

He's got the skills to be BETTER than DD. I know that's heresy. I know he has to prove it on the field. But I LOVE that pick.

I agree with you... but I believe the same was also said for WR draft picks David Clowney and Cory Rodgers as well...

I'm was pointing out that it seems like the late but highly hyped draft picks are the ones that seem to bust first for the Packers over the past years. Doesn't mean Johnson can't change all of that.
