Rodgers would be pissed if we traded R Martin.


If the offseason was any lesson here in Green Bay.. players don't run this team.. if moving Martin is a good business decision, then you pull the trigger on the deal regardless of Rodgers personal feelings about it. IMO.

Bishop, Hawk, and Barnett, hmm....
I'll have to think about that one. You are right though that Barnett loves the middle spot too much. And he's dang good at it, so I think he stays there.


Barnett is a heck of a middle backer.. but he also gets shallowed up in the blocking at times as well.. with his speed and agility he would be a prototypical outside backer.. no doubt he has a world of talent. IMO, Bishop or even Hodge would provide more stoutness to the center of the defense.. Bishop and especially Hodge don't have the same type of range to play the outside as say Barnett..

Now before I get pummeled, I not saying move Barnett, I am saying be open to putting the three best players on the field at one time.. IMO, those are the 3 best LB'ers on this squad.


If we could get a really solid DT, we would have a heck of a 3-4.


Didn't they go with four a few times in some packages? Maybe not in any games but I thought that it was reported they had four LB's in there on certain situations and Barnett was saying the coaches have put more schemes in now that they all have experience.

McCarthy actually half-joked about using a 3-4 D before the 49ers game, he said his injuries might force him to play a 3-4.

What struck me as odd was that there was no way McCarthy would do that unless his D had gotten reps in a 3-4. That suggested (to me at least) that at some point this off-season McCarthy might have installed a 3-4 alignment for certain situations.

We have the players, Jenkins/Montgomery/Jolly/Harrell and Pickett might possibly be the NT in the 3-4.


The thing is, was he half-joking?

The only time we'd see more than 3 linebackers on the field is in obvious passing situations, but even that isn't likely, IMO.

Kampman and KGB at DE and Jolly and Jenkins at DT are a fantastic defensive line in passing situations.

I think Bishop or Hodge.

I think one of our backs could be enticing to someone but nothing more than a 7th.

Beyond that the other guy would Ruvell Martin but I wouldn't trade him at all. I think he's a valuable asset to this team and quite frankly I like the fact that the Packers have 5 good receivers. Without him, I really don't see a good enough case for someone to be the 4th and 5th receiver. I also like Jordy Nelson but Martin is clearly the better player in my eyes.

As far as Barnett. I don't think you move a guy who probably should of gone to the Pro Bowl last year. I was once a strong advocate of moving Barnett because I felt Abdul Hodge could be a really good middle linebacker and I still feel that way to some extent.

I think GB would be better off trying to move Bishop to SLB. It'd be tough transition and it would be bumpy but in the end if he's your 3rd best linebacker then it might be worth it.
