I feel u Gravedigger....but September can't fix us. It takes getting to February. And the closer we get to it (and then lose always) the more it hurts.

4 of the last 7 years, we've lost the NFC Championship game. Nobody else has been in more than ONE. Every team that beats us is a 1 & done who we find a way to lose against. It's devastating & groundhog day.

We will need to draft a CB, WR, OT, RB, ILB, Edge...

If they follow those draft needs. You are in a rebuild. Everyone gave Gute 3 years to straighten this team out. He chose the future. Kadar or Jackson will be the new CB. Pettine doesn't like rookies unless his starter gets hurt. They won't fire him. But should. The best WRs are in the Top 10 that will be stars. The pick should be OL if he dumps Salary. ( And this drafts strength, in the top 40.) But were talking the future with Gute. He will take 1 player in the first rd. for the future. And he will stand out at the combine. The others will be choices on testing, and rely on development. ( If not traded first.) The packers will never go to the super-bowl unless they take a DL. Ke ke will keep getting hurt. Lowrey has no upside. Lan Caster keeps pulling himself out. Adams will leave. Your needs will be FAs and not drafted. If you understood Sherman. You'll know Gutes next move. Pray Rodgers doesn't leave.

The Packers draft needs for 2021 are the same needs as they've had for the last three years- ILB, OL, DL, WR & CB. If past history is an indication of what will happen, Gutekunst won't address any of them.

WR? Haha.......some just wont watch the games!! WR........hahaha....really good one. Just wonder where and when he should play. 3 snaps in the V-formation.

Crazy.......but funny. Yeah and of course the GM, just like Ted before, works for the aliens to destroy the Packers. And Jerry Jones the god of flatearth will saves us all. Then he gives us the trophy, after he lights up his body from the inside.....

No wonder this country got run into the ground since 4 years.

Don't see the need at WR with Funchess coming on board to the current bunch. Agree on all the other needs - OL, DL, CB, and ILB. Loved the crack about Gute!

I'd add RB to the list unless we resign 30 or 33. There's not much after Dillon and RBs take a beating.

For WR, someone who can return punts and kicks sure would be useful! I suppose if they can find a scatback that can return kicks then maybe they can get away with the returning group of wrs plus Funchess though.

Agree. Given the physical status of Bakhtiari and the probable departure of Linsley, the team needs another Jenkins in the draft.

And we’ll have to replace King. This is a guy who is going to get thrown at a lot, so you’re gonna need a decent player there.

I am convinced that Kirksey, Barnes, and Martin can handle the ILB snaps, and that the position won’t be a priority in the draft.

As regards the DL, it seems that if you’re only gonna play two DL , then you want two really good DL . Clark is one on 70% of the plays, but if you could draft a beast to play alongside him for the next four years.....

OL, CB, DL in the top 94. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Gutekunst use Day Three Picks to move up and take his players.

Given the cap situation, I think Kirksey might be gone. That would mean a cheap fa pickup or late round ilb pick.

Packers drafted 3 OL last draft, 1 LB, and 1 DE, 1 S. I expect CB, WR, DT in early rounds and RB and LB later. Packers use one LB in most packages so that is not their top need.

I understand the interception by ARod stood but I hate hearing it repeated. He didn’t throw an interception. He threw a damn good ball that would have gone for a first down had our receiver not been blatantly held. Watch it. In real time and slowed down and see how hard Lazar was pulled in order for that pick to happen. Not taking the TO was dumb but that pick never happens with a competent officiating crew. That wasn’t letting them play. Sick of hearing it. It wasn’t a “battle” with 2 guys hand fighting and working each other over. The receiver beat his man clean and the other used him as a slingshot ffs.

Sorry man but if Lazard doesn’t get held that pass is a foot behind him.

I don't know about that, Pearly, but if anything the hold actually made the INT harder. It's a mystifying read and throw from Rodgers.
