Packer fans love their players, more so than other fan bases, and LT David Bakhtiari is a player that will be sorely missed on the field, not only for his talent, but for his personality.
As you may recall, Bakhtiari suffered a torn ACL back in week 17 of last season during a win over the Chicago Bears.
Presently, Bakhtiari is on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.
USA Today quoted coach Matt LaFleur as saying that the team is currently planning for week 1 as if Bakhtiari will not be available — a matchup against NFL Champions, New Orleans Saints, that will be an early test for the recently drama-laden team.
Coming off the PUP list is Josiah Deguara. Deguara also tore his ACL last season; it occurred during week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons at Lambeau Field.
Due to this injury, Deguara saw very little action in his rookie year. He completed a single reception for 12 yards in week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. To be fair, a small child on a sugar high could complete a pass against the Vikings defense.
Not much info on this due to privacy reasons and stipulations from the player’s agreement. He was placed on the list around July 28th. You do the math. He either had the virus or was in close contact with someone that did, but that is speculation on my part.
The pressure is now on Wilborn, signed earlier this year, to prove his worth.

Hey PF4L, this past weekend I was driving through some small towns and I passed a restaurant called T.Willy’s! Needless to say I had a good chuckle. It was probably pronounced Twilly’s but I can call it whatever I want.
Yea!! Cheese….i’ve seen it, if we’re talking about the same one.
The one i know of is in Bruce Crossing Mi. heading 45 North near Hwy 28.
Not a real exciting town, but we used to stay at Tulppo’s on the corner when we went up snowmobiling. Like i said, not much going on there, but it was a snowmobilers heaven, 360 degrees of groomed trails (wide open, very little traffic) no matter which direction you go.
That was awhile ago as i moved up to the Minocqua/St. Germain area soon after.
We would ride up to Rockland (Henry’s INN) a lot at night for their buffet and get stupid after. A lot of good times up there.
That’s the one!
There’s definitely not much around that area and I can see why it would be a hotspot for snowmobilers. I was heading to Ontonagon to check out the Porcupine Mountains and Bond Falls along the way. Both are spectacular sights to see. We also stopped at a restaurant that fed wild black bears right in their backyard so customers can watch bears through the window as they eat. I saw three different bears roaming around, and some days there’s even more. I didn’t see any fencing around so I’m glad I didn’t run into any in the parking lot.
Yep, used to spend occasional weekends up at Porcupine snowmobiling and skiing over looking Lake Superior with the woman. Strictly snowmobiling with the guys, snowmobiling and skiing with the little Lady.
I don’t like the bear feeding deal. I know it’s cool to see.
But they are creating a potentially dangerous environment
My favorite area up there is Lake Gogebic, year round playground and jumbo perch fishing.
I used to call the U P God’s Country, that is until i went to Lake Tahoe and was mesmerized..
Bond falls are bad ass. Ottawa forest is bad ass. Copper falls is even more bad ass (but not that close to those).
My personal favorite up there is pictured rocks in Munising. People talk about the apostle Islands all the time but pictured rocks is leaps and bounds better….at least in the summer.
Hey off topic – anyone have any favorite nature/hiking places that in Nicolet forest? I’m heading up to catch a practice & then roaming around Crivitz/Lakewood for a few days. Particularly any places that are good for wildlife – I’m bringing my 600mm lens for training camp and would like to get some more use out of it. Thanks guys!
When you go from being the 15th pick of the 2019 draft, signed to a 4 year 14 million dollar contract fully guaranteed, then you get released after year two.
To….being signed to your 2nd team on a 1 year $850,000 deal.
You might be….a bust.
Congrats to Charles Woodson on being inducted into the H.O.F The only player to win the Heisman, NFL rookie of the year, NFL defensive player of the year, and a super bowl title. A. Rodgers stated Woodson was the greatest player he ever faced, or played with. Also, he was a great team leader. He enters the Hall as one of the greatest, and most decorated DBs’ in NFL history. Pretty damn impressive, and well deserved.
There was an old saying :
Three fourths of the earth is covered by water.
Charles Woodson covers the rest.
Nice Mick, Ed.
Props to the Woodson, Manning and the other HOF’ers
When i think of Woodson, i think of leadership, and i think of SB rosters.
Awhile back i started judging the Packers SB worthiness by comparing the current year rosters to the rosters of yesteryears teams that could win a NFCCG to get to a SB appearance.
This is why, in past years i’ve said the Packers don’t have the roster for a SB appearance.
I’ve wrote numerous times in here, compare the current roster to the 1996 roster, and the 2010 roster and you’ll quickly understand why i felt the way i did.
Those were strong teams, with strong leaders, both with a Championship Caliber defense.
This season, Gute has tried to keep the roster together, i’ll contend that was his only viable move.
We did lose Linsley, Wagner, and Jamaal Williams, but added some draft picks to replace them. We’ll see what that looks like sooner rather than later.
What else is different?….that’s easy…a tougher schedule.
So the question is, comparing this roster (even at 90) to the SB rosters of years, what are the Packers chances of getting to the Super Bowl……?
NOT GOOD. Sorry
Can the Packers still get to the SB?
Is Aaron Rodgers still the QB?
Anything’s possible, but……….
For those smarter than a 5th grader, they know, it takes a team.
Can someone tell me what’s wrong with Kevin King?
Did he stub his toe?
Does he have an ingrown finger nail?
Is he sulking?
Where is this dude?
Seems like it’s been a….secret. Reminds me of the BS McCarthy years.
(don’t want to give out any secrets for the pre-season games)…as E. Wolf used to say…GAMESMANSHIP!!
Maybe with an injury report we can find out about him and Z Smitty sometime this week.
This site has turned to shit. We are 2 weeks into training camp, we had a Family Night, and are 5 days from our first pre-season game. Wheres the articles? Wheres the news? Please bring back Monty and Shawn.
What happened to the fireworks show?
They got rained out.
When are they going to shoot them off?
Afternoon = during the day
This is one time where the Packers brain trust should have gotten Rodgers input.
But then again he might have said something dumb, like fire them off after the pre-season Detroit game…ya know, at….night?
Nobody outsmarts the Green Bay Packers, not even mother nature.
I have taken the position that drafting a QB in the 1st round in todays NFL, and waiting a year/years before he starts was an anomaly.
Rodgers not starting for 3 years was…an anomaly.
In related ..some have stated it took Aaron Rodgers 3 years to get ready to be a starter. When i read 5th grade level comments like that all i can do is grin and have empathy for whoever writes something like that.
Reality = Rodgers didn’t start because (Favre). Not because he wasn’t skilled enough and needed years to learn.
Per ESPN LIVE: Who was the last 1st round QB pick that didn’t start in a game his rookie season?
Answer: Jake Locker in 2011.
Now taken further, another question could be,,,,Who was the last 1st round QB to never get activated and suit up for a game his rookie season? Don’t…over think it.
I didn’t become the 29th best commenter in here by accident people.
