    I just made that point also, in the Thompson's Most Brilliant Move thread.

    I think our fans, in general, seem to have forgotten those 2 games, and just how A) great Matthews was and B) how our pass rush sucked without him. (some fans think this team is all Aaron Rodgers... all we need his him.)

    WITH him, we were okay with anyone at the other OLB spot, from Jones to Poppinga to Zombo to Walden. As long as Clay was on his side, we were okay and he scared QBs and the RT.

    That's why I wanted to upgrade the other OLB spot because we will have more moments like the last half of the Washington game and the Miami game, where Clay is out.

    This is extremely hard. So many quality and important players on a team loaded with talent.
    I really liked what Joe Whitt had to say about Sam Shields, I think him and that backfield is what makes Dom's unit click. Without Sam and Tramon, Wood can't attack as often as he does, and OMG, he's good at it.
    I'm really confused why someone would consider Crosby dispensable????
    Who the heck would kick field goals?

    Give Masthay 2 tries and he'll hit a 60 yd'er. But seriously... Crosby is not dispensable.

    Rodgers
    Raji
    Matthews
    tramon
    Woodson

    Clifton doesn't make my list at all. If and when he is replaced, the run blocking will be much better. Pass protection will drop off a bit, but overall, the Pack will be a better team when he retires.

    -Your 1st Point is 100% right. The discovery of Shields is really what put GB over the top (along with the development of Tramon). Without Shields there is no Base Nickel Defense and no Woodson acting as a Wild Card doing awesome stuff.

    -As to your 2nd Point, a kicker of Crosby's "ability" are literally a dime a dozen. Not only are there recent college kickers likely as good of better than him but also NFL veteran kickers who could easily replace him. Successful NFL kickers are almost always found off the waiver wire. Very few NFL kickers were actally drafted.

    should we call them out on it?

    I mean if they are going to steal stuff from the forum, they should credit the forum.

    Anyone want to call up while they are on the air and plug the forum while asking them why they steal topics? I mean I dont have a problem with it as long as they mention the posters and the forum.

    1. Rogers
    2. The Offensive Line
    3 The DL
    4. Woodson
    6. Mathews
    7 Williams
    8 Collins

    I chose the O Line and The Dline becuse that is where the game is won and lost. And it takes all of them to work.
    On the O Line I would put
    1. Clifton. The leader of the Oline and Rodgers Protector

    Dline
    1. BJ, he's the beast in the middle. Now that Jenkins is gone I see him being the leader.

    Without the Lines all of the other play makers cannot be stars.

    I never like to rank players by importance but as some have already said in this thread I think people are drastically under appreciating the offense and defensive lines. 1 or 2 players in particular. :)

    Rodgers......he is the ONLY indespensible player. That was proven last year, and especially in the second half of the super bowl.
