I don't really care about uniforms. Just play ball. The old black on blacks were sweet though.
Rick, JSSN, reeves south and lil dirty, thanks for the early questions, but I can't get them off the google doc.
I don't know where it's going to come from. That's one of the great mysteries of training camp. They need Central Gwinnett's Jonathan Massaquoi to develop into pass rushing terror or for Osi Umenyiora to have a flash back.
Not even Aaron Rodgers. I like discount double-check. He's nice. Would want any of these pistol QBs though.
Yeah, they can beat the Saints. It's a MUST WIN season-opener and Steven Jackson needs to atone for the drop in last year's game. He needs to break loose for 163 yards and three touchdowns. They can't go to Cincinnati 0-1. Just can't after last year's 4-12 debackle.
Way too much heat. He's a winner. Embrace the Ice Man. He's the definition of a winner.
I do wonder why they draft so many players with injury histories (Baker, Jerry, Julio's foot, William Moore's ankle)
Ron Wolf used to say if you hit on 30 percent of the picks, you're going to be good. He's batting way over 30 percent and hit big in the QB. Nobody is drafting at a 100 percent clip. It's not an exact science. You have a winning football team. Enjoy it. Before last season, only the Patriots had a better regular season record.
No. They owner said so. Why? He's build this thing up from trash. You don't remember most of the previous 40 years before 2008?
He's got to get Julio Jones signed now and continue to restock in the trenches. That's been his/scouting department weakest area.
I think you can spot-return Hester and get more mileage out of him. I expect a big year from him. Special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, a future NFL head coach, will come up wth a good plan for him.
Hey, don't hate the Badgers. They know how to play smashmouth in Madison!
I don't think it's hot at all. He's the winningest coach in team history. Both of our columnists -- Jeff Schultz and Mark Bradley -- hold a different view.
Oh, yes. It's hard to teach tackling without a lot of padded practices. Coach Smith told me they spent an inordinate amount of time discussing how to teach/perfect their tackling methods this offseason.
I don't expect to see a tight end until they get inside the 20. I expect to see a lot of three wide receivers. Pascoe could play in short-yardage blocking situations.
I don't really know yet. I have no sense for this defense, but the 2012 unit was a bend-but-don't break crew that didn't allow a lot of points.
No doubt. They need someone to step forward and become a playmaker. Will it be Worrilow? Will it be Bartu? Will it be Shembo? Will it Angerer?
Joe Hawley is who I'm betting on. He's smallis, but gritty. He was paying attention when McClure was around.
No, he's the same. Got back to his football roots as a power football guy. I think they tried to match Green Bay's high-flying offense after getting smoked in the playoffs and that's just not his style.
Yes, I think he was. Quite an athlete, but has to prove himself as a football player.
No, you want to have your good players healthy. They may get to develop some of the younger linebackers faster now.
No, he doesn't have to block. The players have to make the difference. He has a solid track record as a offensvie line coach. Not spectacular.
I think it will be Osi Umenyiora or Jonathan Massaquoi. Hageman is going to be a rotational player and may not get enough snaps to lead the team in sacks.
Yes, that's a very important one. Josh Wilson is primed to take it over from Robert McClain. I think he'sd the favorite.
Greetings All. Back for the second week of the mailbag!!!
