We don't need a 1000 yard rusher, we just need to be able to get consistent positive yardage. With the line we have we simply don't have the push to really have a rush-first mentality.


Push? Puleeze. I'll settle for some small improvement over the "crack" we try to give our RB. I have forsaken the concept of a "hole", as under this administration. the linemen are not required to do...

what?


anything in the run game? These guys have not been earning their pay or position, and their coach should be gassed, but I digress...


Amazing what happens when we - accidentally, by my best analysis- create a hole---

We seem to have AWESOME running backs when they are not running into the back of our offensive linemen!

THIS is what I'm worried about regarding Jackson, not his ability. I'm worried we already have the ability in that position, just unheralded due to o-line and scheme suckiness (it's an industry term)

...But I liked how Ahman Green ran under this shit-box system, he found sunshine often when clouded in complete shit, so I'm optimistic if Jackson signs. He SEEMS like a guy that could find a hole where we have none.

Face it. We are a "soft" team. Yes. The GD Green Bay Packers-my boys- my Lombardi boys- are S O F T. aka PUSSIES! (or should be known as such) We have NO CONTROL over the trenches against anyone worth talking about. HOW EMBARRASSING! Your Ted Thompson (and I like Ted, mostly) has a plan, we win many games, but they are SOFT SOFT SOFT. GET 'EM ON THE LINE, physically and mentally (our opponent) Cold-weather Green Bay Packers. Pisses me off. Doesn't he even know where he LIVES? He built a friggin' astrograss plastograss whatever girly-man flim-flam D O M E team!

Those homos in SF have a physical - team we must aspire to, (not that there is anything wrong with that) and our President is B. Obama. The world is definitely so upside-down, lol


HEY TED! GET THE BEST FUCKING LINE IN THE NFL AND BE DONE WITH IT, DO THAT, hang onto Rodgers, and we can get UDFA's for the skill positions. DO THE SAME THING for the pass rush folk. Christ, I should run this team, lol

If they were really discussing a 3-year deal earlier.. what is taking so long to finish it?

Welker was roughly 2-hours between when talks were reported, and finalized.

because of that, I don't think we are making a very strong push, and more waiting for his market to settle.

Packers | No bidding war for Steven Jackson
Wed, 13 Mar 2013 06:42:56 -0700

The Green Bay Packers have made contact with the representatives of free-agent RB Steven Jackson (Rams) to express interest in him, according to an NFL source, but it doesn't appear they are close to signing him. The Packers want to sign Jackson at their price and will not engage in a bidding war with any other teams.

Jackson is probably taking his time and seeing if there are any other offers he would rather accept.
I guess that's what FA is all about.

If Jackson's agent thinks he's going to squeeze extra money out of Ted, he's in for a long week. From what I've read, Jackson wants to play for Green Bay, and he doesn't need the money, so patience grasshoppers.

He wants to play on a SB contender. How many SB contenders don't already have a number 1 RB? the teams in demand that meet his expectations would be down to maybe the Falcons and Packers maybe a few more.

The Falcons aren't Super Bowl contenders - they have Matty Choke at QB. If that was happening, it would have already.
