They were as deep as they were talented

New signing Packers kicker Dominik Eberle had 75 extra points and 22 field goals in one season as a junior? That means his team scored well over 50 points per game in a 10-game season, and even in a playoff scenario they had around 50 points per game. Is it correct? Ask a friend (if true) . . . is the offensive coordinator available? 🙂

It’s true. This quarterback for this team just happens to be on the Packers roster. The offensive coordinator is however not available. David Yost was hired by the CRF a few months ago.

I understand the heavy breathing regarding the future of 12. I really do. Several sports columnists said that Jordan Love was not the guy. I’m not saying it is. Do you have any idea of ​​12’s stats before he got the starting job? I’m willing to bet they’re similar to JL.

Rodgers completed 15 of 31 passes for 111 yards and one interception in his first two NFL seasons. It was in his third, Rodgers had that telling performance against Dallas (20 of 28 for 218 yards and a touchdown).

Hello insiders! Coming back into the world after taking the bar exam for the past two days to catch up on the Packers news for the past two weeks. I’m glad to see that the cap situation didn’t stop us from keeping Kenny Clark. He’s a key part of making sure this defense stays championship-caliber. The draft class looks weak on QBs and the jury is still out on Love, do you think we can build a championship team around our running backs and that defense if Rodgers retires? I think so.

If it’s not 12, then it will be 10. I think that’s also the right choice. Fans are getting worked up over the amount of cap space teams have to dedicate to franchise QBs in today’s NFL. Have you seen what veteran saves command these days?

I am sad for the Ukrainian people. It’s a tragedy. Why can’t we all live in peace on earth? Great to read the Insider inbox six days a week, a place where it seems the hate and cancer of social media is nowhere to be found. Did I understand that Big Dog was coming back? I know we’re stacked against the ceiling, but Cordarrelle would be a great addition (even if there’s no math in the inbox), a la Desmond Howard, if I may dream…

Lewis signed a two-year contract with the Packers last offseason and I think we all know how serious he is about breaking Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez’s record for most seasons (17 ) played by a tight end. So I’m waiting for his return. Like Campbell in Green Bay, Patterson set himself up for big payday with the way he played in Atlanta. I don’t think anyone is giving her a discount this time around.

All of the talk about first-round QBs this week got me thinking: when a highly drafted QB struggles (Mitch Trubisky and Sam Darnold as two recent examples), do you think that’s primarily a bad assessment or is the bad situation and the coaching are to blame?

I always think back to the Alex Smith situation. He had four different offensive coordinators in each of his first four NFL seasons. The 49ers lost a lot of games and Smith took a lot of hits. Once Jim Harbaugh came in with a more stable offense, Smith showed his true potential.

Dennis of Beavercreek, OH, said he’d like to see the Packers win a lot more SBs, but mostly wants to stay competitive. Given the choice of staying competitive but not earning an SB or earning an SB once in a while but maybe not as competitive during non-SB years, which would you prefer?

I may be obtuse, but I’d rather be in the Green Bay situation than Denver or Philly.

Currently, when trading a player to another team, the team trading the player may get cash, players, and/or draft picks in return. With dollar caps so valuable, why couldn’t a team receive compensation caps, which would increase their cap amount?

That’s not what it means. There are ways for the old team to “eat up” part of the player’s contract, but that can’t actually give the new team space.

Jack Vainisi, now he’s someone who deserves HOF’s attention. Not only for his pivotal role in hiring Lombardi and building a legendary collection of talent, but also for pioneering modern NFL recruiting and personnel systems. Those who don’t know him should look him up. I know he died too soon, but how can his impact be so overlooked?

Those in the know recognize the massive impact Vainisi had on the Packers. He’s another guy who was ahead of his time. He was the architect of the run the Packers undertook in the 1960s, which might not have been possible without him.

As for Scott from Sheboygan’s career-ending injury question, Sterling Sharpe and Tim Lewis would also be good choices. I started watching the Packers in 1970 when Phil Bengtson was the coach, and suffered through the 70s and 80s. Therefore, I couldn’t agree more with your comment that Bob Harlan should be in the HOF, not only to resuscitate the franchise, but also for the inspiration to build the atrium, etc., to provide a solid revenue stream for the future of the franchise. .

Like Vainisi, Bob Harlan deserves all the good things that have been said about him. Adding contributors to the Hall of Fame was necessary. But now we have quite a long list of deserving candidates over the last century. Canton could almost use a centennial slate just for contributors.
