Wow, Nick Collins was paid $2.3 million out of the 2012 salary cap.


I put the ones in bold that I felt should be retained. I was pretty surprised to see how many are free agents after the 2013 season (indicated by 2014). I'd like to see Greg Jennings retained and Erik Walden too.

As always it comes down to cost. Shields will be back. I would like to see Jones back also, I think he could be a very good ILB, he has size and speed which is a combination our ILB haven't had. And I don't think he will cost overly much. D-smith can't be let go unless we get a sure fire starting C, and even then he would be a good backup that can cover 3 of the line positions if needed.

Boykin, Ross will be back for competition depth at minimum. Crabtree is a questionmark with the depth at TE we have. Seeing that he got the most play time of the backups.

Why?


Greg, EDS, Benson, and Brad Jones are the only ones I'd like to see back.

Though Ideally Benson would not be back in favor of a draft pick.

I assume shields will be back because I don't know of any RFAs getting away freely.

I don't see Walden back either.Shields, EDS, Crabby and Jennings seem to only worthy players moving forward. That's 4 out of the 12, and we probably let Jennings walk. So, we keep 3.

I like Benson but don't see him as a need going forward. Brad Jones improved moving inside, but I think we can do better.

Erik Walden plays very well in spot duty. He's not a starter, and he's good on special teams (so I've heard) and he'll come cheap.

Walden just disappears way too much. We can't have another year of that. We've already had 3.

Nick Perry should be back and be the starter, so Erik Walden and be the backup, which he was doing very well at prior to Perry's injury. Walden was third (tied with A.J. Hawk) on the team in sacks.

Yeah, I'm just tired of seeing him out there and not making anything happen when it really matters. His best game was 3 years ago against CHI. We keep hanging onto that, and I'm ready for a change. A really big change back to a 4-3.

Who's we? Who's hanging onto that game years ago? I just stated he did very well spelling in for Nick Perry and is a good part time player. Where did I say anything about the game several years ago? Quit kicking kittens, man!!

Whoah. Me. I. I guess its just me then, because the guy got only 2 sacks against the Lions, and a half sack against STL and CHI... then one more against MIN in the playoffs. Zero sacks against SF, SEA, NO, IND, JAX, AZ, NYG, DET, CHI, TEN, MIN, and SF in the playoffs.

If I told you before the season that he would have no sacks in 12 of our games, would you still have wanted him? His numbers reflect the problems we suffered last season. I wanted better. That's all.

And he didn't play v. SF, I know. That's on him.

beast (5h) : Yeah it's weird, if anything goes wrong the defense and OL get blamed, even if passing game fault
hardrocker950 (7h) : But I put it mostlt on the offense and poor playcalling
hardrocker950 (7h) : I have seen the defense take a lot of flak over the loss..
Cheesey (9h) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (9h) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (9h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (10h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (11h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (11h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (12h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (13h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (15h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (16h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (16h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (16h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (16h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (17h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (17h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (17h) : clean?
