12 posts in this topic

Just read on the NFL sports network ticker Green just signed with the Houston Texans.Do the Pack have someone else to run the ball for them?

Good question? Can't believe they got rid of Green, Godo, and Davenport in the last year. That leaves Morency-sp I guess. Some people have the Pack taking a RB with there fisrt pick. Have to wait and see.

Technically Ran, the pack didn't get rid of Green, he was a UFA (Unstricted Free Agent) so he could talk to any team he wished to play for or whatever team was offereing him the best contract. I am suprised that the Packers didn't put the franchise tag on him to keep him in Green Bay. But then there could be conflict between the player and the organization just like in Chicago right now with LB Lance Briggs and the Bears organization. Sounds like Briggs is one pissed of guy right now with the Bears placing the franchise tag on him to keep him in Chicago, but he wants to play elsewhere it sounds, so he is asking for a trade.

bluegills, getting rid of him by not giving him a new contract- same thing. He's pretty worn down anyway. I think it was the right move.

If the Pack would have franchised him and didn't get a long term deal worked out he would have been guarenteed 6.99 million next year. WAY TOO MUCH for a 30 year old back who isn't what he used to be. Also, he was looking for a 4 year deal and the Packers didn't want to go that far out. We are very thin at RB right now, but I think we will take care of that in the draft, free agency, or maybe even a trade.

Yup, a great player who loved being a Packer, never complained, went about business quietly and got the job done. No doubt he will be in the Packer's HOF. That said, the organization probably made the right move, or non-move, as it were. It just wouldn't have been smart to re-sign him to a multi-year deal in the range of what he was looking for. He is getting up there, and this, combined with his repaired quad and asthma, prevented him from lining up for more than 2 snaps in a row.

Good luck Ahman, and I hope you prove the Packers wrong!

I can maybe see them signing Jamal Lewis if the price is cheap enough or maybe even Travis Henry which would be more of an ideal back for the Packers offense, can catch out of the backfield.

Henry has signed with Denver, so that option is no longer.

I guess when you fumble the ball alot, you don't complain about still getting carries.

One year it was his elbow pads. Then he changed them, fumbles stopped. Then it was his elbow pads the next year. He forgot I guess.

Then it was hayfever the next season. He took some Clariton and the ball stuck in his arms better because he wasn't wiping snot off his face.

Last season he didn't fumble because Brett Favre asked him not to. That guy's pretty influential. Maybe he should ask himself to not throw the ball on a rainbow and watch it get picked off.

Ok now, UJ....not a Favre fan are you?

This just in: Favre has asked that UJ not post any negative comments about him (and since he is so influential......)

Nyuk, nyuk.

No, actually, I like Favre. And his bullet passes (though I would NOT wanna be at the other end of one)

I am also happy he is coming back for another season. I actually like that he's not afraid to throw the ball up for grabs, makes for entertaining football.

      Hmmm...getting a prosthetic foot and attaching hooks now

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
