After an extremely busy off-season of roster moves and also following a disappointing 2018 season, the 2019 Green Bay Packers roster has been completed this weekend. The 2019 season is now upon us with the Packers facing the Bears on Thursday night in Chicago.

Gonna get this out of the way first: DeShone Kizer was given the boot and Tim Boyle will be backing up QB Aaron Rodgers this season. Boyle was just looking better and better as time went on. Kizer seems to lack the quickness and reaction time in the pocket that is desperately needed in this league.

Mason Crosby will return for his 13th season with the Packers. Sam Ficken wasn’t able to impress anyone well enough to show Crosby the door just yet. While only 34, Crosby does look like he has already chased a few kids off his damn lawn. Some financial details:

As far as wide receivers, the Packers stuck with Adams, Allison, Valdes-Scantling, Kumerow, Davis, and Shepherd. Geronimo Allison was one of the “maybes” in a crowded group of wide receivers prior to the recent roster cuts. J’Mon Moore was wisely shown D’Door as his lack of consistency made him stand out as the one of the worst of the group during the preseason.

Jake Kumerow will get to prove his worth another season. He stood out during preseason and just seems to have the overall right attitude and hustle for the job — not to mention he seems to have worked well with Rodgers in the past. CB Jaire Alexander recently referred to Kumerow as a “beast”. Just what we need.

Allen Lazard didn’t make the cut for the primary roster, but we may not have seen the last of him. Trevor Davis and Darrius Shepherd both made the roster against tough odds. Shepherd’s return abilities will be much appreciated this season. Equanimeous St. Brown was placed on the injured reserve following an ankle injury.

Fan favorite Danny Vitale will be given fullback duties this season. Promoted to the active roster this past December, Vitale has not seen much action yet but appears to be ripe with potential. Rob Born recently wrote about his massive size and pointed out that his inclusion in this season’s roster was a sure thing.

Another surprise for some was that ILB Curtis Bolton did not make the team and has been waived. Bolton is an undrafted rookie from Oklahoma that made a good impression during practice and the preseason.

As of right now, barring any upcoming moves, this is the roster that will face the Chicago Bears in week 1 at Soldier Field with a first-year coach. It’s going to be wild, uphill ride this season.

    Uphill both ways. No sausage eater on the sidelines though…the air is fresher. Game 1 is like a playoff game it seems.

    I don’t understand what the Packers are doing at ILB. Is there anyone available?

    Glad Cole Madison got another chance to make the team, I think he will prove valuable down the road. He is very grateful to the Packers for the opportunity.

    You just have to laugh at what a waste these past several drafts have been. Josh Jones, Jmon Moore, trading for Deshone Kizer, etc, etc.. At least they’re finally getting rid of guys that don’t contribute regardless of draft position.

    I still have serious doubts as to the ability of the talent assessors and scouts in the Packer organization. I believe that BG may be much better than Ted Thompson (The Frugal GM) was, but that is NOT saying much. A few of GB’s picks have been waaaay off. I will be very surprised (and happy) if Rashan Gary actually plays to his draft choice #. The next few weeks will speak volumes to this. I know he is a rookie, but that kind of alleged talent is supposed to show itself right out of the gate (he must have been sand bagging in the pre-season I guess). Time will tell . . . regardless, I will enjoy the game (unless they continue the trend of shitting the bed). It is a NEW year in the NFL. Go Pack Go!

      I kinda got chided on for making a similar comment about Rashan Gary in another thread. That being said, I’m going to keep my Rashan Gary comments positive from now on.

      Boy, that Rashan Gary sure does have a positive outlook on things, doesn’t he? How about that supreme level of self-esteem we are treated with during a Rashan Gary interview? He’s oozing confidence and that’s inspiring. Yup, positively positive.

      Well, at least we didn’t follow some draftniks mock boards and go with Jachai Polite. Consider that he was mentioned in the same conversations regarding pick 12. Dodged a big bullet there.

      1. MMSUCKS September 3, 2019

        Yeah, we certainly did, Polite was even fined heavily for tardiness and lack of effort . . . Hey! wasn’t that lack of effort tag placed upon Rashan Gary during his time in Michigan as well? Thought so. But I’m with you, I am going to clean the slate with Gary and just trust that he is going to be a beast. Because that is what 1265 says that he is going to be . . .

        We will see. I am not going to judge based off the preseason. I remember when Hundley looked like an all pro. I remember when Davante Adams had a rough first season, and it seemed nearly everyone here was calling for his head. Let’s give the guy some time. Early indications don’t excite me, but we will see.
