Double Speak

By Bruce Smith

Tuesday, 10 January 2006

I admit I am surprised to read people who felt free to use words like idiot, incompetent, fat-assed… in expressing their “opinions” about Mike Sherman are now suddenly shocked and outraged that anyone would express displeasure or dare to question Ted Thompson. I just don’t get it?

I would guess that some would try to pigeon-hole me into an anti-Ted Thompson camp; I would argue they were dead wrong.

The Legend of Brett Favre

By Mason A. Wood

Tuesday, 10 January 2006

As the Green Bay Packers’ fans settle into their team’s off-season many are struck with the realization that this may have been the last time we see Favre grace Lambeau Field. For some people they see it as a good thing, a player who has stayed a couple years to long and should have left before his skills diminished. For the rest they see Favre as a player who simply had a bad year being asked to carry the load of the offense without a running game or a top-flight receiver to throw the ball to. No matter which side you are on, there is no debating that Favre will someday settle into the Hall of Fame, but in the meantime where does this season leave him?

Packers Season Ending Review

By Patty
PackerChatters Staff-Green Bay Draft Sheet
Monday, 09 January 2006

What do the Green Bay Packers realistically need to do in this off-season?

First, they must address their own Free Agents. Which ones to bring back and which ones to allow to go.

My personal direction is this;

1) Resign Kenny Peterson DL: He finally began exerting himself and showed some talent especially late in the season. A RFA that I would resign. Good rotational player.

Final Roster Cut Days

By C.D. Angeli

Sunday, 08 January 2006

Most people wait for these cutdown days with anticipation. I know on many occasions we have favorite players we hope make the team, though they are hanging by a thread. Most times, we?re happy with the decisions, because the players we love, whether they be named Moss or Favre, make the team. Sometimes, we're a little sad, because that young kid we saw giving his all at a practice or making a key play in the fourth quarter of a pre-season game goes.

But most of the time, the names of the cut get read and forgotten. Names that disappear from memory once the season starts.

One name has always remained in my head. His name was Louis Berry.

The next Packers coach doesn’t need to be a fiery motivator

By Rick Cina
PackerChatters Staff
Friday, 06 January 2006

As the search begins for a new head coach for the Green Bay Packers, it has recently been suggested that GM Ted Thompson may be looking for a fiery, dynamic coach who can inspire and motivate players to play with more passion and intensity. Which may lead one to believe that perhaps Thompson didn’t think that Mike Sherman was enough of that kind of coach. And perhaps he wasn’t.

The prototype for the kind of coach we think of when we talk about the fiery motivator is, of course, Vince Lombardi. And there probably will never be another Lombardi. But while many have directly associated Lombardi’s intimidating, combustible personality with his skills as a motivator, it may be alternatively true that player motivation primarily comes from two main sources: a) extreme confidence that the coach knows what he’s talking about and what he’s doing, and b) from deep within himself, or from a player’s own personal will and sense of pride.

Chat Transcript: Great Blue North Draft Report with Colin Lindsay

By PackerChatters Staff
Friday, 06 January 2006

Due to a recovery problem (now fixed) we are only able to publish the last 1/3 of last Tuesday's Draft Chat with Colin Lindsay.

Chat Transcript: Great Blue North Draft Report with Colin Lindsay


[LMG]: Have ONLY Draft related questions ready and entered into the text box ready for submission when called on. This will help speed things up
so Colin can answer as many of your questions as possible. If you do not have a question when called on please reply with 'no question' so we can
move on.

[Colin.GBNDraftReport]: I'm a big Huff fan in that he has 4.35 speed but really likes to hit, question is whether he is a CB or more likely safety. I
suspect he falls into the early to mid 20s. A guy I have real questions about is Ngata. Some people are talking about him as a possible top 5-10
type but while he is tough to move off the LOS plays way too high; isn't quick and doesn't make many plays upfield.
