A.J. Hawk is one of the most well-known members of the Green Bay Packers in the NFL today. He is admired for his hard-nosed, physical style of play, a style that is missing in the current Packers' defense. Sure he records a solid number of tackles per game, as he should playing the most

I agree that he was not worthy of the 5th overall pick. However, I do really like Hawk. He's a great person and like the article says, he plays nasty and I like that. You can always count him to be there every Sunday, and he seems like a good leader on the defensive side of the ball. I wouldn't like to see the Packers part ways with him, especially since we have nobody that could replace him.

Stick with him -- slow and steady beats a flash in the pan.

Hawk was worth the pick no doubt I for one would rather have a steady player who dosent ever get sidelined because injury then a player who is above good but then gets hurt then you have to put in someone a whole lot worse. Ted Thompson likes hawk because he does what they ask him to do Ted Thompson even said he was worth it. I hate how some people only look at statistics when talking about players.

BTW Dan. Despite the claims in your bio you are not an "inspiring" writer, you are an "aspiring" writer. You may or may not be able to put together a sentence, we will leave that to your 5th grade English teacher to decide . Based on the above drivel we know you are not a sports writer. Try again Junior.

what a dumb prick??????????????? not nfl caliber yoru not writer material jack ass?? how is the most consistent player on the team not nfl caliber??? is stood by while bishop was behind barnet, dont you think with your small brain that the team people who manage the team you know the pros would have said man this guy sucks lets put bishop in and not have this "not nfl caliber player" on field?? jump off a bridge.jackass.. and yea hes not the best has flaws but this is clown bullshit right here


Zach Savage
He was worth the pick. First 3 years if you had to do the draft over he would have been the number 1 pick. Long term he has not panned out to be great. He's slow and seems weak. But we could be a lot worse off and we have nobody to replace him with in 8 years.


Starr57
Really Dan?
Tired of all The "Hawk haters".
Led the team or in top 3 in tackles his 1st 3 years.
Played through injuries in 2009 that would have shelved most other guys. Never missing a start.
Then in 2010 when lbr's started dropping like flies, who stepped up, taking over for a once again injured Nick Barnette , playing alongside a bunch of no-name lbr's, qbing the defense, keeping them together until the so called "SUPERSTAR" could return.
Let's fast forward to now, once again, Hawk will be playing alongside, raw, but hopefully talented lbr's for at least a month, maybe longer. Who knows who the starting lbr's will be the next few weeks.
I for one am glad that odds are A.J. Hawk will be there anchoring the middle, calling the plays, making sure the young guys know their responsibilities.
In retrospect, I wish Ted Thompson would have never drafteD A.J. Hawk, tired of writers and fans alike who can't appreciate a true Professional!!!!
The importance of a player doesn't always show up in "stats".
THIS IS NOT FANTASY FOOTBALL!!!!
Worth the pick and every dollar he has earned in the NFL!!!

Geesh...you "journalist" have nothing better to do than pick on AJ Hawk. If he is so bad, why is he still starting and calling the signals for the defense? Fortunately for the Packers, clowns like you are not in charge because you complain about the steady players and would have the Packers get rid of them all. Hawk was drafted because he is a "football guy" according to TT. True, he isn't flashy but he is the consumate professional according to his coaches. He is hard nosed like many of the Packers who have gone before him. If the entire defense was as hard nosed, we would have the best defense in the league. Lay off Hawk and go back to covering dog shows or some other bit of tripe.

Geno
Dumb kid. Ever watched a Packer game? Hawk reminds me of Nitschke every time he plays. Got his nose in the middle of the action. Busting his hump and the guys he plays against. Steady player you don't have to worry about. Clearly you know more than TT. Dope!

You can't have a superstar at every position. Not worth the pick but reliable, consistent, and a known quantity. And not in the way Jarrett Bush was pre-2009.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. A.J. Hawk is a victim of his draft pick status. If the Packers were getting Hawk production out of a late round pick people would be calling him a steal. Well, It's time to forget about A.J Hawk the former #5 pick over all. It's been 8 years, it does not make one bit of difference if he was #5 or Mr. irrelevant. All that matters is how he is producing. If you don't think Hawk is a starting caliber NFL linebacker based on his play then fine, you can have that opinion and make that argument but if you don't think he is a starting caliber NFL linebacker because he was the #5 pick over all and he hasn't lived up to that lofty draft status you are an idiot.

I say it's completely fair to compare Hawk to what we coulda and shoulda got with the 5th pick in the draft - NOT to what some low round pick did or could do, many of which have actually out-performed Hawk anyway. I'm on record as favoring Vernon Davis instead of Hawk - the big controversy at the time he was drafted, and even though Davis has been kind of up and down, I'd still take his career over Hawk. Furthermore, if we hadn't gotten Hawk, there's a strong chance we would have somebody a LOT better in that position now.

I don't know how much I would trust any publication that has Brad Jones rated 8th best in the NFL hahahahahaha. However, a lot of those guys, and a lot of others way better than Hawk were not picked in the first or even second or third round.

My point above all else is that it AIN'T a positive that Hawk has hung around this long. If he wasn't there, we coulda, shoulda, and almost certainly woulda gotten somebody a helluva lot better, and probably not needed a first round pick to do it.
