ET nailed it on the head. Bad game but it is only one loss. Rodgers proved he is still the best QB in the NFL. Even when we had good coverage he was finding the perfect spot for the ball.

Tough one last night. Let's see how we bounce back.

Only if you let us borrow Watt and Owen Daniels for a while. Laughing

OD? Maybe. Probably not, guy has been money for us this season, our only consistent target in the passing game. Watt? Sorry, many apologies.

...however, may I interest you in some Antonio Smith and Garrett Graham? Laughing

A silver lining from this game is that Andre seemed to get his groove back. Yes 8 catches and 75 yards isn't his usual dominant game but we made all of his catches and didn't drop anything. He would have had a TD if Schaub threw the ball just a little lower. But I was happy with what he did. He was very solid he just missed out on having one big play that would have made his stat line look like the old Andre and I believe those will just come with time. And he has had little trouble making big plays in earlier games so I think we should start to see the old Andre next week.

That play on 3rd down where he was running a slant and Schaub threw behind him and even though he had all his momentum going the opposite direction, he stopped, made the difficult catch and got the first down. That's the andre that we're all use to seeing.

Why, you don't like taking a guy who should have been an UDFA in the 3rd round and then most likely spending the next 3 yrs. to develop him into a #4 WR that we could have had right away if we had just drafted someone else?

Pretty sure he dropped 1 or 2 balls. Definitely at least one.

...or, Dwight Jones. Remember Dwight Jones? Me neither. Laughing

only recently we have hit on our DB's (thankfully, since it was becoming a very scarce area of depth behind woody & Tramon)

but we have been a WR factory for a few decades now it seems... always seem to draft well there

All I know is I want Jordy Nelson in a Texans uniform next year. He is the perfect replacement for Kevin Walter, and he should not break the bank to sign.


hes still got 2 years on his 4 year deal iirc... you might be thinking of Jennings, him & driver are the only ones not under contract after this year


Wasn't Nelson drafted in 2008? So this should be the last year of his rookie contract, right? For some reason I thought he was going to be free after this year.


he re-signed at one point. he's not on his rookie deal anymore.


Right after the SB victory, if memory serves me correctly.


correct... in hindsight it was a great deal for the packers, but at the time it was a "front office confidence" deal & its certainly paid off for us. 4 years under 15 mill for a #1, not a bad deal for the pack


It's paid off, in spades. Nelson looks like the future of your WR unit, with Jones serving as one of the best #2 WRs in the league, and Randall Cobb getting into the Wes Welker/Percy Harvin slot WR role. Very diverse WR unit, with two guys on the outside who are physical and can make every catch, and a slot guy who is a threat every time he gets the ball.

Since the days of James Lofton, the Packers have always had some productive WRs, year after year: Lofton, Sterling Sharp, Robert Brooks, Antonio Freeman, Bill Schroeder, Javon Walker, Donald Driver, Greg Jennings...every time one of the guys dropped off, another one stepped in, had a 1000+/10+ season, and order was restored.

Now that Jennings is "dropping off" so to speak, you have Nelson and Jones to lean on. It's like an assembly line for WRs out there.


I think you can pin a lot of that on ultra high level QB play during that timeframe.
