Erik Walden leaves #Packers for 4-year, $16M deal with #Colts. Walden says he was signed with every expectation to start opposite R. Mathis.

 

WHAT THE HECK?!

 

This has made me furious. Not happy at all with today's moves. Toler, a decent enough nickel option, gets starter money, and Erik Walden, who is Jerry Hughes level of bad, comes in as a starter?! This has got to be a joke.

    • Not that you expect much down to earth thinking on the radio, particularly from Mike Wells, but he was co-hosting with Bowen this morning and he was talking about how much Ballard botched the backup QB position because of his movement up and down the depth chart.  Not to mention that Ballard said "Look, he's a 4th round pick, he's going to have to earn it" when asked after he was drafted and hasn't had a great thing to say about him since.     To me, when it mattered, we had a serviceable backup when we needed it - Jacoby - and he did well when he was forced to start an entire season after Luck retired.  After signing Rivers, we all knew we couldn't keep Jacoby at $20m as a backup and couldn't really resign him for what he wanted after the 2020 season so we drafted Eason.  Had the talent, but needed to be coached up - what do you expect from a 4th rounder? ya know?  and then we drafted Ehlinger in 2021 and signed Hundley and put him on the practice squad.  Ehlinger goes on IR and once we get to see Eason, activate Hundley to the active roster because we've seen enough of Eason.  Ballard will put him back on the PS if he clears waivers or maybe we don't.    But these guys act like we're 2-4 because we cut Eason and Ballard has just completely mishandled the backup situation.  Like, we're talking about a backup QB.  Any team that has to put in their backup for considerable time is in a bad place.  Let's not act like even serviceable backups like Fitzpatrick and Brissett are the norm when we draft 4th round and later QBs.  Let's get a little bit of a grip on reality...
    • We have no FS on our Squad Right now. I think Ccachere or Tell had potential to be that... If Blackmon was a beer he'd be called Willis Light lol...
    • We don't need ED Reed lol smart *. A Hooker like ball hawk in coverage. My point is we play two SSs.
    • He's too busy putting on a dog and pony show for Hard Knocks.
    • Having a free safety could definitely help with the salary cap situation.
