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.

Give me Josh Gordon or Greg Little from the Browns and I'll be happy.

Not gonna happen, especially since we are playing them this week, but Rodgers throwing to Gordon would be amazing.

I like Little too, but I don't see that happening. He would be a great #4 and a good #3. Not that fast, but pretty big and can catch. Tough, too.

Nicks and Britt can stay out of the Packers locker room. Britt is a liability, and Nicks is too expensive for what you are getting. For that matter, Nicks has done little to nothing lately, so why would you expect him to produce in green and gold?

No thanks!

uffda udfa (11h) : Now, a guy they really liked and have groomed for 3 years is the guy. Tons of toys on O. Let's see how it runs with a great coach, now.
uffda udfa (11h) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (11h) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (11h) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (12h) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?
Zero2Cool (12h) : Teddy is replaceable. Aaron is not. Vikings have a really good defense. We do not. Understand??
Zero2Cool (12h) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (13h) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.
uffda udfa (13h) : :) Evans had a pre-draft visit with Packers.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Put it in a topic. My lord why so difficult lol

Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : I said that too. Why don't you quote me?? I'm famous!
uffda udfa (16-Oct) : @ProFootballDoc says Rodgers could return Week 14 at earliest, and surgery speeds up return timeline.
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : McCarthy dropped a "bullshit" on packers.com stream. No delay apparently lol
