A Burgundy and Gold Obsession

    • Breaking Down the Game Within the Game

      So I will open quickly with some easy grabs, and then ill go to sleep.

      IMO the Lex Luger of the NFL as far as having the total packages are no doubt the Packers and the Patriots. I think they get it.

      It has been said who knows how many times by who knows how many talking heads that its a passing league now.

      So we went out and traded the farm for a guy was expected to help us achieve what we wanted from the QB position, and to try and conform with the new trend.

      But the Packers for instance who got their guy when they got him have been recently keeping up with the trend in a different way.

      2014 draft:
      RD 1 Ha Ha Clinton Dix FS making an impact
      RD 3 Khyri Thornton DT
      RD 5 Corey Linsley C starter

      2013:
      RD 1 Datone Jones LE starter
      RD 4 David Bahktiari LT starter
      RD 4 JC Tretter OL
      RD 5 Micah Hyde FS starter
      RD 5 Josh Boyd DE impactful

      2012
      RD 1 Nick Perry DE
      RD 2 Jerey Worthy DT
      RD 2 Casey Hayward CB impactful
      RD 4 Mike Daniels RE starter
      RD 4 jerron Mcmillian SS

      2011
      RD 1 Derek Sherrod OL
      RD 4 Davon House CB impactful

      2010
      RD 1 Bryan Bulaga RT starter
      RD 2 Mike Neal DE
      RD 3 Morgan Burnette DB
      RD 5 Marshall Newhouse OG

      2009
      RD 1 BJ Raji DT
      RD 1 Clay Mathews LOLB starter
      RD 4 TJ Lang RG starter
      RD 5 Jamon Meredith OT
      RD 6 Jarius Wynn DE

      Just looking at those rounds that they chose those positional players tells me that they want to protect their QB.
      It also shows me in a "passing league" they want to rush the opposing teams passer as well as cover with the best of them.

      I heard a cool stat when watching them two weeks ago that said they have only 5 players that have played on other teams... yeah 5. and one is Julius Peppers for Pete's sake.

      We know they have no owner(what I wouldn't give) and I'll assume Mike Mcarthy(HC) and Ted Thompson(GM) and Mark Murphy(President of Exec. Committee) must be seeing eye to eye for the most part because I don't hear much drama coming from green bay on a regular basis. I will tomorrow look into this executive committee and find out whos doing what in there, but if you ask me... they have THE recipe for sustaining success at the moment.

      I tell people often... you don't HAVE to win the superbowl, there is something to be said for just being in the hunt and competitive every year.
