McCarthy said he is prepping Nate Palmer for the backup gig so looks like we are promoting from within at that spot. After that I assume Mulumba would get the nod. Other than that we added a CB to the Practice Squad to account for the move of CB Nixon to the active roster.


Nixon might be a kick returner.

Green Bay football is reality football not fantasy football.
The reality is Ted Thompson is General Manager of the Packers.
Why waste your time fantasizing about these trades.
Not going to happen folks!


Why? I counter with why not? What financial investment are you risking by projecting your opinion of a potential trade?

Again, I ask, why not? You haven't a thing to lose and scheming up ideas is fun. These projections are interesting to read.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer to live in a world of reality.
Fantasy football does not grab me.

The projections would be interesting if there was a modicum of a chance that any of them could become reality.

Kinda like Ted Thompson will NEVER trade picks?
Ryan Grant.

Kinda like Ted Thompson will NEVER make a trade into the first round?
Clay Matthews was drafted in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, with the 26th overall pick (Acquired from a trade with the New England Patriots), by the Green Bay Packers.



Just because you think you know Santa Claus is not real, doesn't give you the right to piss in others Cheerios. [laughing]



But seriously, talking about stuff shouldn't get anyone locked up or cause much issue as long as we respect others opinions. Your opinion is trade talk is hogwash. I respect that, just strongly disagree (kinda goes with the territory since I kinda own the site for ... umm ... discussing the Packers lol)

Byrd looks like the one we could really use. I would love to see Thompson make a trade for one of the best Safeties in the NFL to pair with Burnett. Regardless of the cost.

Not having a compliment opposite Burnett at Safety has cost us dearly, for two years now.

By the way, I would add Josh Gordon, WR from Cleveland to the list. I know they are saying they aren't trading him for a 2nd anymore, but if they were, that would be a no-brainer, imo. The guy is a big player like Jordy Nelson (6'3), and faster. He gets separation, which the current Packers wide receivers often struggle with. I think getting what is basically a sure-fire good or better wide receiver for a late second round pick is worth it. The Packers would be nearly impossible to stop with all those weapons.

I know it's not a need, but getting a guaranteed play-maker for a 2nd round pick is pretty sweet. Ted may be able to pull out another Nelson with that pick, but it could also turn into another Pat Lee or Brandon Jackson. I don't know his contract details, but I bet he's still pretty cheap for another season or two, which would give the Packers flexibility in working out future deals.

One can dream (if yooper allows it).

I would absolutely love to see Gordon in Green Bay and if all it would take would be a second rounder it would be a steal. The Browns front office would have to be totally incompetent if they were to let that happen, which means the probability is good that it will happen.

Did I miss something? Is Finley lost for a good portion of the season?


When talking about TEs, why does it all have to be about Finley? I didn't say a single thing about Finley and you're all defensive about him, for what ever reason. Got a crush on Finley or something?


sschind said: Go to Quoted Post
Because that is the only reason that it might be considered a good idea for the Packers to trade for Gonzo.


So the reason of having two good TEs for a season isn't a good idea for the Packers?

Let's be honest, Mike McCarthy loves TEs, and now that the Packers have the running game and the WRs the weakness is over the middle. Why not have two good (maybe great) TEs?


Nelson, Cobb, Finley, Gonzo and Lacy all on the field at the same time with Jones, Starks and Franklin rotating in as needed.

Sounds like a pretty good group to me.

Thinking about Gonzalez and Finley on the field at the same time...

mind blown


I would love for the Packers to go trade for Jarius Byrd. We would have one of, if not THE best defensive backfields in the entire NFL. Morgan Burnett could use a good pairing to play next to, he deserves it.

I am not so high on the Josh Gordon idea, but I wouldn't hate it. I know other NFL teams would because giving Rodgers another big receiver is just not fair.


I am on a high of how well our offensive line played this past weekend or else I'd be throwing an offensive lineman's name into the mix here. I really like how the line is coming together.

uffda udfa (48m) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (4h) : It's just fine.
musccy (4h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (5h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (6h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (6h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (6h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (7h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (7h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (7h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (11h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (11h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (11h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (11h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (13h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (13h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (13h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (14h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (14h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (15h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (15h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (15h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (15h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (16h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (16h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (16h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (16h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (18h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (22h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
