:icon_smile: I'm impressed. Nine rookies are on the 53 man roster and seven others are either on IR or the practioce squad. That means 16 rookies made the team in some fashion or other. Rather a substantial number .

Yes. It was a good offseason for picking up the young ones. I think we had a good draft.

That is a fairly high number for a team that was already one of the youngest in the league, coming off an NFC Championship game.

However, the turnover seems to be down the depth chart trade offs between experience and potential.

That is the way to continually improve from within.

uffda udfa (1m) : Not diminishing anything. He got away with OPI. Didn't notice before. Was in airport.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Bahahahahahahha GO PACK GO!!!!
Zero2Cool (1h) : when you're buying your Super Bowl LI Champion gear, be critical of that too!
Zero2Cool (1h) : keep trying to diminish what the Packers have done and ...
Zero2Cool (1h) : one... that's just how it goes. They let the players play. But go ahead
Zero2Cool (1h) : 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 (2h) : 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 (8h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (10h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (11h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (12h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (16h) : It's just fine.
musccy (16h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (16h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (17h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (17h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (17h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (18h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (18h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (18h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (22h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (22h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (23h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (23h) : 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 (23h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (20-Jan) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (20-Jan) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : @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.
