Pickett is from the Rams. And Hargrove might be forced to sit out 8 games, so I wouldn't say he's the starter. I'd go with Worthy.

The guy doesn't know the difference between a Ram and Cardinal, says Dimitri Nance has more value to a team than Barry Sanders and yet wonders why no one listens to his ranting about teams never needing to run the ball ever. Gee, I wonder! Lets Box!

So the cup is half full unless it's half empty? There is no spoon ... Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. (oh I think I have an idea for movie night with Keiana now)

I hold the belief that all are talented and with the right system, the right coaching each can excel to great levels with the proper motivation. First round, third round or undrafted ... who gives a damn. If you can play, you can play.

Do some research on free agents and how well they succeed on their next team based on where they were drafted. (not TELLING you to do it, saying it as more 'matter of fact')


It doesn't matter if the cup is half full or half empty if it is ricin.

I can't research how well undrafted FAs do based on where they were drafted.Shrug

I don't think I could either. I wasn't directing you to do it or anything. My apologies if it came off as such.

I think I would take the best 10 free agents of the last 5 years and see where they were drafted.

No apology needed. I was joking.

I can't look up their performance based on where they were drafted because the undrafted FAs were not drafted.

The graph is missing an axis.

I was talking about actual free agents, not undrafted free agents. Reggie White was a free agent, for example, but not an undrafted free agent. Oh shit, he came from the USFL so ... dammit. Okay, umm, Charles Woodson was a free agent, but he was actually drafted in the NFL draft.

Jordy Nelson made some comments regarding Driver:

"Following the recent departures of veteran left tackle Chad Clifton and safety Nick Collins, Nelson believes Driver serves an important role with the franchise and still has plenty of football ahead of him entering his 14th NFL season.

“I think he’s important,” said Nelson, who led the Packers with 68 receptions, 1,263 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns last season. “He’s fun to be around. You build those relationships and you don’t want them to end. We’ve already experienced two of them this year with Chad and Nick, and I think it would be tough to take a third.”"
http://blogs.greenbaypre...driver-back-next-season/

I think it will be tough to see him stay with the Packers this year. Michael Hunt had an article stating the same thing in the MJS today. However, should Ted run into a snag at another position due to injury, he could still use one of his many WRs in trade to fill that spot, or keep DD around for insurance till roster cut down to 53. I think Driver's value to GB is allowing for another WR to be traded, while he could provide the depth and leadership he's always given, at a more affordable price.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another WR traded away later on, or to see Driver hit the tiles in a roster cut, and play elsewhere. Just doesn't seem right, having one of our all-time greatest being sent out, but I get it, if it happens.

play what the heck is it with you and thinking everyone wants our wide receivers? We won't trade Nelson and Cobb. No trade value in Jones and Driver at all and the only one that would be a slight chance for a trade would be Jennings in his contract year if I remember correctly.

I STILL think Driver has enough left for him to be valuable to the Packers.
I hope he can show the young guys he still has what it takes.
Let's face it, one injury, and having a talent like his on the roster could pay off big. It's not like he's lousy and not worth it.
If he shows in camp he's still "the go to guy", KEEP HIM!

He hasn't been the go to guy for a couple years now. Jennings and Nelson are ahead of him and most would probably say Cobb and James Jones are too. That puts him to 5th on the depth chart, a spot you ask the player to play in Special Teams often. The only way Donald Driver stays on the roster is if 1, pay cut, 2, injury to one of the names mentioned and proves he's worth keeping over a young developmental WR.

I think Ted has this all tied to DWTS... if Driver wins, he can stay. If not.. lol.


Seriously.. here is what I really think.. he will redo his contract some.. he will come to camp. Depending on how things shake out (overall depth) I can see him sticking this year yet.

Personally, as much as I like Jones as a overall player, I think he might be the out man out in Green Bay if there is depth with the young bucks. Affordable contract and would be a commodity on the market at another team could use. But for the Packers to move Jones, two young players need to step up and make the squad with the Packers keeping 6 at receiver. Driver filling in the 3rd to 4th option on passing plays.

I think Quarless starts the year on PUP, allowing the Packers to keep 3 other TE's and a pair of young bucks at receiver for the future. This gives Driver another season as a farewell tour so to speak.

With as complicated as the Packers offense is.. I think there is a limited amount of yearly turnover that can be afforded each year.. the above scenario gives the Packers maximum flexibly short and long term.

Yeah, it just makes the most sense to me. It gives Quarless more recovery time, plus provides a little insurance, unless there's a RB, or OL, or some other position where the talent/potential outweighs the value of Donald Driver of course.

Dumping James Jones is intriguing. If one of the young bucks shows equally capable, I could see Jones being let go straight up.

Just saying it is possible with the glut of talent we have there. That's all. I didn't say, "everyone wants our wide receivers."

Uh, you COULD try giving me a little f'ing break, being it is about as slow as glacier formation on the football front... [neener]

James Jones is staying right here, and that is a good thing, imo.
Past experience in viewing young WR's says to me that Randall Cobb has got to "replace Donald Driver" this year.
I love DD as much as the next guy, but we also have additional complications. We are stock-full of quality WR prospects, and we are going to have to make as many holes for them as possible. Hanging onto DD does not do that for them, as prospects. I wouldn't dismiss this factor, as regards DD.

Honestly, I'm good either way. It would be hard to fuck that up amongst the WR personnel we have, regardless of who gets let go.

FIRST he'd have to learn how to not be a dick. If you can teach him that, I suggest you franchise it, as many sites would like your recipe.
