AADP... great rebuttal post.. and it very well might get brought into play on the numbers game... but we have Harrell on the PUP already and KGB very well might land there as well..

My wager is that we start the year light on the Dline in terms of numbers and keep a couple skilled players as extras.. week 6 rolls around.. someone or two will land on the IR with an injury protecting players of interest that won't make it through waivers to the PS.

We will see.. Ted Thompson and company have had some weird roster configurations to start the year at times.. I am sure this one will be no different. :lol:

So true.

The thing that worries me is the D-line is not too strong going into the season, and I believe McCarthy/TT believe the games are won and lost in the trenches. That sounds pretty stupid considering we've had a lot of shuffling on the inside of the o-line, but I still think McCarthy and Ted live by this philosophy.

Taking that into account, and the fact that Pickett will be seeing his first action against the Vikes, I think (or perhaps prefer?) the Packers play it safe and keep an extra DT on the roster, even if it is Muir or Malone.

If I remember correctly, a couple of years ago the Packers had a verbal agreement with a player that they'd resign him after they released him in the final cuts. That was done so they had time to trade FB Nick Luchey I think.

Perhaps that's the route the Packers can take here too? They have a wink-wink/nudge-nudge agreement with Lumpkin that he'll be back in a couple of weeks once the DT rotation becomes more solid....?

Considering Lumpkin said the Packers were the only team to show interest in signing him, he might do this as a show of his gratitude for the Packers making the only serious offer to sign him after the draft...

I'd hate to see Lumpy not here. He has shown he WANTS to play, and is a tough son of a gun. Guys like that don't grow on trees.

Um...Cheesey...

people don't grow on trees period. They get delivered by storks.

Anyways, I'm hoping nobody snags Lumpy from our PS, which he'll probably end up. I like the kid, but think Herron's underrated and don't want to lose him either.

Zero2Cool (4m) : when you're buying your Super Bowl LI Champion gear, be critical of that too!
Zero2Cool (4m) : keep trying to diminish what the Packers have done and ...
Zero2Cool (5m) : one... that's just how it goes. They let the players play. But go ahead
Zero2Cool (5m) : Everyone knows on the hail mary type passes, those little shoves won't be called. Think replacement refs 2012. So, no did not get away with
Dulak (17m) : ya I think they mentioned that U U ... but you see this alot - even in the dallas game they pushed off at least 1 time (they as in dallas)
uffda udfa (6h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (9h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (9h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (10h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (14h) : It's just fine.
musccy (14h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (14h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (15h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (15h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (16h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (16h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (16h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (16h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (20h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (21h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (21h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (21h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (23h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (23h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (23h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (23h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (20-Jan) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
