Hawk can't cover.


Actually, he covered amazingly well in 2010. I think that helped lead to the gigantic contract after winning the Super Bowl. I think Hawk had 10 PDs in 2010, along with 3 INTs. That dropped to 3 PDs in 2011 with 0 INTs, and 0 PDs with 0 INTs in 2012.

Hawk's stats were better than Urlacher's in 2010.

Hawk seems like a pros pro though, and I would imagine he will do what he can in training/conditioning to improve this year. He will be better with better players around him too... like, Brad Jones.... RollEyes

That is the only part of the season that counts. Mike was "warned" for 2 straight weeks of the problem and didn't get it corrected for SF.


I'm not disagreeing with you, The Packers got caught completely unprepared, just trying to make the point the guys on the roster now are pretty talented, that 4-5 mil a year is not out of line.

Oh No. How could Thompson be that stupid? If the deal had been just above the vet. minimum, I wouldn't have been opposed keeping Jones as like a 4th ILB/OLB or whatever, but nearly $4 million per season? That's just ridiculous!


They obviously think he's the future starter :)

Jones was one of my favorite picks at the time, I really like his speed. It seems Ted Thompson sees something he really likes, that's a much better deal than most would have expected him to get. We'll just have to trust Ted Thompson knows what he's doing, he usually does.

Brad Jones is the Packers' only ILB who is competent in pass coverage. He has the speed and height to cover the hybrid TE that are taking over the NFL. I'd rather have Jones out there in coverage instead of Hawk or Bishop/Smith coming off major injuries. I could see Jones being our lone LB in dime packages also. It also helps our special teams.

Nice job by Thompson locking him up.

Who would you rather have covering Vernon Davis in January?
