The Green Bay Packers seem to have a reluctance to play young players on defense. Ultimately, that could be hurting them in the long run. We investigate.


I assumed the schemes were too complex. The speed of the game too fast.

It's bullshit. Just another excuse for shit suckage.

I almost feel like Dom is playing favorites with some of his veterans. Matthews and Rajii both started as rookies. So did Morgan Burnett.

Yeah matthews started but it took 4 weeks even though it was clear he was the better player. Same with Hayward

let me just float this idea. Perhaps, the younger guys are not playing more, because THEY ARE NOT READY to play more. Perhaps, they only know a limited amount of the plays and assignments, perhaps they make way to many mistakes that none of us know because WE don't know what they were suppose to do in the first place. Perhaps the plays we see them make are because they are not where they are suppose to be.

Perhaps they are not as good or ready or prepared and since the coaches talk, work and see them every day and we don't, perhaps they have a hell of a lot better idea of who is better for the team to play at a given time.

So what does it matter when you have a veteran like Jennings who obviously isn't ready and makes those same mistakes so much he gets benched 3 weeks in a row.

Maybe Jennings, as bad as he seemed to be, was the best option. Scary thought.

Bad article. In just the last 2 years, Perry, Worthy, Daniels, Heyward, Hyde, & Boyd got significant playing time as rookies. Not full time starters, but certainly saw the field. Yes, that time increased as the year went on (Except for injury). Doesn't that just make sense?

With the avalanche of injuries we always suffer we can say that whoever is healthy plays.

When you see Jarret Bush on the field you know it is pointless to ask who plays and who doesn't.

beast (2h) : Nonstop got it correct, but when Giannis said it, the Ant-teh-toh comes out very quickly, which is said to sound very "inauthentic" when english speakers try to speed it up, but natural to native Yoru
beast (2h) : I just read an article (with videos) on how to say it... I might be able to say it the English way, but no way I can pronounce it like Giannis himself did.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : Ant teh toh koonm po (roughly)
Zero2Cool (2h) : well if it's not t hat hard to say, then ...
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : Assuming the name is Greek, it's not t hat hard to say.
Zero2Cool (3h) : I don't even try his last name lol
beast (12h) : Richie Incognito told police he’s involved with the NSA, being tracked by government

Zero2Cool (24-May) : 2.5lbs ones anyway ... anything else is just showing off

beast (23-May) : Richie Incognito is being held for an involuntary mental evaluation after he was accused of throwing a dumbbell at another person
Nonstopdrivel (23-May) : Weird, I thought they had parted ways with him already. Apparently he was just on IR.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Packers expected to visit with veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis
DarkaneRules (23-May) : And whether any improvement will be enough to make the team.
DarkaneRules (23-May) : Goodson wasn't very good but it's been a while. He gets an opportunity to show how he's improved.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : I still say Goodson is trash.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Aaron Rodgers brought up CB Demetri Goodson unprompted on Tuesday. "He's made some plays already during the two days (of OTAs)."

Zero2Cool (22-May) : players picked from Nos. 1 to 21 in the first round receive fully guaranteed contracts.
beast (21-May) : Rumor is that Richie Incognito wants to retire, he just wanted to be released first so that he didn't have to play back any of his signing bonus.
