I don't see it happening. Hakeem Nicks wants a huge contract and I don't see the Packers parting with a pick to rent a player for half the season. And Kenny Britt is just not the player some think he is.

I don't see any "big" moves happening, either. The only way I could even really see Ted Thompson considering something would be if both James Jones and Randall Cobb were out for the season. If appears as if Jones will be back sooner rather than later, and possibly even Cobb (although I still wouldn't be surprised if he tore his ACL). Even without Cobb, that will give the Packers Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Finley, Lacy, Franklin, Boykin, and a few other role players. All things considering, that's still not too bad. It's not an elite core, but many QBs have played with worse. The biggest factor then becomes continuing to establish the running game, as they have been doing. While a really good running game might not be able to make up for the loss of Cobb completely, it can come close. A good running game plus the remaining weapons will still make it hard for most other teams to beat the Packers, especially with the defense playing well.

Nicks would certainly look good in Green and Gold, and the Packers could very well resign him instead of him going elsewhere for the long term, but I think he's a little over rated, anyway. Ted Thompson could probably do better, and for much cheaper, through the draft.

Kenny Britt would have to be a short term rental.. as the guy as a list of legal issues that seem to attach themselves to him.

9 Times Britt has been in trouble with Johnny Law since joining the league.. 9 times since 2009. And people are rubbed wrong by Finley's immaturity.. this guy would give them nightmares.

Nicks would be a short term rental because of his salary..


But Ted seems to be wise in keeping a chunk of that salary cap open so that as the attrition wears on.. we have opportunities like these.. just don't know that either is the right fit for us. Long term anyway.

uffda udfa (2h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (2h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (3h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (7h) : It's just fine.
musccy (7h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (7h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (8h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (8h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (9h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (9h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (9h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (9h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (13h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (14h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (14h) : 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 (14h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (16h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (16h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (16h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (16h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (17h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (18h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (18h) : 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 (18h) : 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 (18h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (18h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (18h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (19h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (19h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : 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.
