Looks like we have Taylor, Buckner, and Autry back. I believe Kelly will play as well? Not 100% sure about that. We should be able to beat the Texans now on Sunday. Hopefully Clark doesn't kill us at LT.

 

Great to have you back Buckner!

Hope Clark isn't even playing lol

Packers are a class organization. Love the team, and the fans are great. Always root for them when they aren't facing the Colts or the Broncos (I live in Colorado and my parents are Bronco fans).

Only two teams I will do that too, Texans and Patriots.  Chiefs are rapidly reaching that point, mainly cause their fans are starting to act the way Pats fans did.

Didn't Pinter play tackle at Ball State? I know we wish he had longer arms, but haven't we considered that option?

There's no way I'd start Pinter at LT over Clark. Having Pinter try to go 1-on-1 with JJ Watt all game at a position he hasn't played in the pro's yet is asking to absolutely kill any confidence he has. I don't think he has the length to play LT in the NFL anyhow. We're way better off with Clark having a week of starting reps.

Looking for a clarification:

Did Autry, Taylor and Buckner have Covid, or just high risk exposure?

Taylor they said off the bat was high risk exposure.  It was reported both Autry and Buckner tested for it but based on the timing Buckner at least didn’t have symptoms.

Glad you're noticing this as well. They're riding the high after winning a SB in 50 years and landing a once in a generation talent at the QB position. On one hand, I get it.....they've been through a lot, but on the other.......they need to relax. 

 

I see so many Chiefs fans screaming they're a dynasty without even knowing what a dynasty is. It's extremely hard to go back to back in this league so while they do have all the pieces in place for another run, I'll believe it when I see it.

Winning multiple SB's is tough. Every fan base thinks they can do it, once they win one. I thought with Peyton we would win 2 or 3, should've but it is tough. KC may win 2 or 3 with Mahomes but not sure. They are the favorites to win it again and it will be interesting to see if they can repeat. Colts had one of the best 9 years in the history of football from 2002-2010 going 109-35 but only got the one SB win/2 SB appearances. KC kind of reminds me of those teams, their D gets after the QB and they have the best QB in the league + a coach who is a players coach and nice like Dungy was.

Reid is an offensive genius though. Not saying we didn't have decent coaching on O, but it was really Peyton running the show.

 

Manning was just unfortunate that he shared time with the duo of Bill and Tom.

Peyton was a coach on the field of the offense no doubt. I was basically comparing Reid and Dungy's personalities, they seem so similar to me. Players love him like our players loved Dungy. Reid is definitely a genius calling plays.

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
