Didn't see a thread for this yet. I am glad to get him back, had some burst we haven't seen in awhile.

--------------------------------

yeah, cut him

Glad we brought him back. He's going to be dirt cheap and the energy level he brought to the field was insane. We need more of that.

Let him compete for a roster spot. If he figures it all out, great. If not we aren't out much and we'll move on. I feel certain Ted will draft a RB next month too.

Very interested to see how he will look with a full offseason here. Dude runs hard and definitely provided a spark when he touched the ball, no doubt about that. Would definitely be something if the eternal enigma ended up reaching his full potential for us.

Yep, that's about where I am as well. Letting Michael battle for a roster spot makes sense. He should be a little more comfortable in the offense this year after getting his feet wet last year. I hope Ted can land a starting caliber guy in the draft as well .. got to figure he will pull the trigger at some point fairly early in the draft.

A guy that will be great in a role where he touches the ball 6-8 times a game and hope he can get a seam like he did in the Chicago game. Dangerous if he can get to the 2nd level

Honestly do we need to draft a RB high now? I think Monty and Micheal could be a great one-two punch again.

if anything, this means Ted won't feel like he has to take an RB early in the draft. there are viable contributors in the mid to late rounds. this class is deep

Packers haven't subbed RBs for a couple of downs here and there, they've subbed for an entire series.
Michael seems like a lousy fit for an up tempo offense that changes at lightning speed. Learning the playbook is static and even that eluded him.

How is he gonna handle it LIVE in a loud road game when Rodgers changes the protections, changes runs to passes and counts on the RB to be on the same page ?

He ran the wrong direction on several plays; this is the guy you wanna trust to pick up the blitz package and protect Rodgers ? No thanks

IF he's on the 53 in September, the Packers whiffed Very Happy

McGinn year-end review
CHRISTINE MICHAEL: Michael has had a checkered career on and off the field. He keeps getting signed because of his energy in locker rooms and his explosiveness as a ball carrier.
Its obvious that he loves to play, which is very, very important.
However, hes undisciplined in almost everything that he does. The front office has to make sure he gets to the game. The coaches and quarterbacks cant be sure if hell line up properly (Wonderlic of 11). The linemen have no earthly idea if hell follow their blocks or impatiently cut back. He struggles in all areas of the passing game. The Packers got 91 snaps and 186 yards from scrimmage out of him. Maybe its time they quit while theyre ahead.
Grade: D-minus.

Nobody questions his athleticism or juice, but at the same time - nobody is comfortable with his lack of smarts; and in this offense, that's a huge liability.

A. He ran the wrong direction SEVERAL times? C'mon, several? Are you just making this up? I'm seriously asking. Several?

B. They whiffed where? They could draft a RB and he could end up RB3, oh wow what a huge whiff.

C. Please don't quote the McGinn trash that also included these grades.

Spriggs F
Lane B-. Yeah, he was almost a C+ guard McGinn.
Tretter C-
Rip C
Clark C
Guion D- lol
Perry B-
HaHa B

Yeah, our All Pro safety. Just a B player. B- minus players get that contract Perry did.

That old angry prick needs a punch in the face. Lucky he has all these "sources" or nobody would give a [inappropriate/removed] what he says but other old angry pricks.

EDIT:

When have we ever had a RB3 that we were like OMG HE WOULD DO SO GREAT IN A LIVE GAME WITH THE CROWD ROARING AT PICKING UP BLITZES AND HAVE SUCH A GREAT UNDERSTANDING OF THE PLAYBOOK

Like, Brandon Jackson? And he couldn't run a lick. I defended him constantly but 80% of the fans hated his [inappropriate/removed].

I don't think it means anything in terms of the draft, tbh.

How could anyone actually watch Guion last season and assign him that grade?

Old angry pricks that are still mad at Ted for letting Favre leave could.

Scout comments on C Michael:

He might get signed in the summer. Hes been cut like four times (actually three). Did anyone do their background on him? Bounced around, hes not that talented if you watch the tape. He doesnt have vision.

There wont be a big market but hell probably have some feelers. Hes definitely fast, and hes quick. Hes more of an outside than an inside runner. Hes got decent hands.
On the negative side, its ball security and consistency (catching) out of the backfield. On the positive side, hes got twitch and can run.


And yes Norm, I watched him run the wrong way on more than one occasion this year... leaving Rodgers naked and alone... Smile
