Just about every season I ask the same question: Why is Jarrett Bush still a member of the Green Bay Packers? Heading into his eighth season with the team, Bush has seemingly hung on because of his special teams skills and his usefulness in filling the void when injured starters can no longer play. It [...]

Well if someone else steps up and plays spot duty and special teams better than he does, then he is expendable, so come on backups and show him up! Otherwise, more Bush in our future :)

PS. I got no problems with Bush.

He gets one more year before they start trying to phase him out.

Getting to be that age.

If he can be replaced and the quality remains or improves I am all for it.

Bush is still a member of the Packers because he has CLEARLY been the best gunner the Packers have had lately.
To be a good gunner you need to be able to get off blocks/jams, race down field and tackle the returner.

Some of the WRs can get off blocks and race down field but aren't used to tackling and aren't used as gunner often.
Lots of other DBs can race down field and tackle the returner but none of the other DBs have been able to get off jams/blocks half as well as he can.
I forget who noted it, but Bush has gotten off double team jams (often times from the Bears) better than others have gotten off single jams.

I've heard rumors about rookie CB Micah Hyde could be a very good gunner and House did seem to be getting better at it before his injury, but a lot is left to be seen.

There are seveal reasons The packers Special team play has vastley improved the last few years.

One of the biggest is everybody's "whipping boy" Jarrett Bush!!!

There are plenty of db's who could take tackling lessons from Jarret Bush.

He's under contract and is worth every bit he is paid.

Can't these guys find something better to report on?

Same old tired stories year after year during the down time.

We could always fire up another replace Hawk thread, or are you tired of that subject? [neener]

I totally agree with you on Jarrett "the cat" Bush. Until somebody can gun better than he does, he is worth the roster spot. But I don't ever want to see him in coverage again. The pick in the super bowl was his 15 minutes of fame.

He broke even on that play. Makes up for not falling on that fumble in the NFCCG in '07.

I think he was paid not to fall on that fumble, funny rumor has it that the superbowl pick wasn't suppose to happen, but the check got lost in the mail.

Funny how things work out.

The motherfucker is a worthless piece of shit in coverage from the line of scrimmage. He has always been a worthless piece of shit and liability, to the point of being extraordinarily expensive in critical moments. The good offenses use him like a bar of soap. I hate the motherfucker in defense. HATE, HATE HATE.

I love him on special teams. It is way too expensive, he is a WEAK LINK, A CRITICAL ONE, INVARIABLY, has been, will be.


I wanted him GONE. I want him GONE. Frankly, I want him SHOT, GASSED, CRUCIFIED or traded, kill, kill kill, but I'm an asshole, lol, plus an owner

I'm sure he is a good and talented man. Just please never step foot on the field as a Green Bay Packer again. . Go totally screw some other team in the NFL like you have been doing with ours with your ostensible talent. Fucking overpaid bastard. I hate him. Hurt his feewings? The motherfucker lives in a mansion that he has yet to earn.

It's an opinion, and put me down as not a fan of Bush.

I bring that out in people, lol


I'm going with a dairy farmer analogy.


You can spend an entire winter building an absolutely magnificent fence to surround your pasture. Go ahead and forget to build the 4 foot gate at the corner of the fence. The cows are gonna get out. Bush has been the missing 4 foot gate for the Pack in the last several years.

uffda udfa (7h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (8h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (8h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (8h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (8h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (8h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (16h) : 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 (17h) : 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 (17h) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (17h) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (18h) : 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.
