Comments on: A.J. Hawk, You’re Cut! Your Green Bay Packers: Telling It Like It Is Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:13:39 +0000 hourly 1 By: Kennebunk Wed, 01 Feb 2012 03:16:31 +0000 Agree with Kozak & Hacksaw also, (Ragnar’s a Cnt), I suffered through the 70’s, 80’s & ½ of the 90’s. I hated the Cowboys, Niners & Bears because we sucked and could not compete. This year was almost “comfortable”. Seemed destiny that the Pack would win, although we all knew the defense was playing like shyt.

I can’t say why and surely would not point a finger at one player. I remember when TT cut/signed Hawk and was all for it. They were talking at the time how Barnett was disruptive in the huddle and Hawk was a huge improvement with his “calm” style. We had just won a SB, and a lot of credit went to Hawk.

Would it have worked better with Barnett this year? Would Barnett call out Woodson and tell him to pull his head out of his ass & play sound defense? Who knows? All I know is I was pretty pissed-off with the Giants game, but not more than the previous Giants DP game, and it doesn’t even come close to how PO’d I was with 4th & 26, (which Barnett was involved in).

It’s all not in the shitter. With TT always bringing in young guys, we needed to figure this missed preseason may be a problem, despite all the pundits saying it would favor the Pack. Shields needs more work as well as Burnett. Lattimore needs muscle, So’oto needs coaching smarts. All stuff they can fix next spring. Smith may already be there. We can go on but we have a good foundation to build upon, (shyt 15-1?), & the draft, let’s enjoy the next few years.

Someone like Kevin Reddick, North Carolina (if he declares)
or Audie Cole, NC State

Those are examples of mid round high value middle backers who excel in coverage and have a nose for the football…

By: iltarion Tue, 31 Jan 2012 01:47:46 +0000 Fortunately, I don’t “disagree with anything everyone everywhere ever said.”

I mean, really, could we use a bigger generalization?

Actually, I agree with a lot of McGinn’s article, just not the part about Hawk.

McGinn spends 150 hours in a month watching game film? You do realize that is about 40 hours a week watching nothing but game film?

We do realize there aren’t any 3,000 pound marlins, right? I don’t think a guy is holding a fish the size of a Range Rover.

Anyway, I was wrong to say McGinn probably isn’t required to watch the game film. I read his analysis of the Giants game just yesterday. It actually is pretty fricking good, much better than anything in the GBPG.

You make a good argument about Jenkins’ value, except I never said that Jenkins wasn’t “missed” or that our defense wouldn’t have been better if he were still around. I simply said it wouldn’t be elite and that you can’t blame the fall to dead last in the league on him being gone.

Lastly, this site wouldn’t be one iota better if I simply commented on how I agreed with everything. But that being said, I don’t argue for the sake of it. I don’t follow people around and contradict them like some have done with me.

That’s fine though. I decided a while ago that if couldn’t stand the heat I’d get out of the kitchen. I’m still here. All of them are gone.

By: Hacksaw Sun, 29 Jan 2012 18:42:50 +0000 The fans that let that loss to the Giants consume them clearly shows that they have a hard time overcoming adversity. To each his own, if you want to let it effect your life go right ahead. Stress causes health problems. Now if you don’t agree that certain fans didn’t let the loss phase them enough it doesn’t mean you have to bring them down to your level. I for one was dissapointed, but the season was fun to watch. I remember the Packers in the 80’s. I would much prefer this season over that decade of misfortune.

Go Pack!

By: Xavier Sun, 29 Jan 2012 15:52:19 +0000 Kozak

You have the wrong idea. You expect us to be fine with losing? Obviously we’re dissapointed, when your team goes 15-1 but loses in the divisional playoff game your gonna be shocked and dissapointed because you expect so much more. Had we gone 9-7 and sneaked into the playoffs no one would be shocked or as upset because we wouldnt of expected to get to the playoffs

By: ay hombre Sun, 29 Jan 2012 15:24:02 +0000 Exactly! The financial element is a huge component of the story.

By: Kozak Sun, 29 Jan 2012 15:15:27 +0000 Man am I sick of the bitching by so called Packer fans. The team won 19 straight including 3 road playoff games, and a superbowl, went 15-1 swept the division and beat the Bears 4 times in one year. It was one of the greatest seasons of Packer football EVER. Yeah it ended in disappointment with a loss. Get over it. If the only way you judge a season is by Superbowl trophy, you are going to be a miserable unhappy prick 95% of your life. This is the third Golden Age of Packer football. Enjoy it while it lasts. It can be a long long time between these sweet times and the bad times. Go look up the Packers on the 70’s and 80’s to get a clue. Ask any Bear fan what decades of suck feels like. Talk to a Browns fan.
But quit the bitching.
