    hopefully this is a reverse samson effect and end up making a bad player play better.

    Good for him. That can be a great sacrifice for some but even a greater gift for someone else. Kudos!

    I wish he'd have sent it to me. I wear a hat to cover my baldness. Heck, I could super glue those goldy locks on and pass myself off as Fabio....

    Why am I thinking of that Carly Simon Song, "You're So Vain"?

    I really wish people would give AJ some more credit. He isn't the fabulous prospect out of Ohio that he was chocked up to be, but he is extremely consistent and has been consistent since we signed him. He's always good for 100 tackles, a couple of picks and a few sacks. Again, not sensational numbers but he gets the job done and that's sometimes all you can ask for.

    I know, right?

    I don't get all the AJ hate.
    The Packers staff must see something in him to keep him on the team and as a starter.
    CM3 hasn't gotten the DPOY and he didn't put up the numbers he did this year like he did last time.
    So by that standard, we should get rid of him too.
    Right?

    Reading that reminds me of the time when I saw David Crosby as a solo act open up for the Grateful Dead for their annual New Year's show.
    Ahhhh.....
    Good times, good times.
    I can just smell the weed and taste the acid again.

    you didn't quote my post but you "quoted" my post, not sure why, but it was more a joke. I don't think Hawk is bad but he is overpaid for what he brings to the table.

    I'll bite, I think the team would be better off without him on the team. And I have supported jarrett bush at his worst.

    Maybe with a little help he will do better. I like his haircut. He looks a little less like a cave man.

    Certainly Hawk receives a lot of attention and criticism because he has disappointed based upon expectations of being selected at the 5th spot in the draft. He's "not that bad" but that's a great example of damning with faint praise IMO. That pick turned out to be a mistake. Not a Tony Mandarich, Jamal Reynolds or Justin Harrell mistake because Hawk has contributed, but a mistake all the same. (If you don't think so, if we could "do over" that draft, where should Hawk have been taken?) That goes on the negative side of Thompson's ledger IMO but at the time I think it was more than a reasonable pick so I don't hold it against him - the draft is after all a crap shoot. Even in the first half of the first round.

    However, extending Hawk to a deal averaging $6.75M/year is a mistake Thompson is more responsible for IMO. If Hawk had emulated his college play he would have been worth the 5th pick in the draft. No one could know for sure whether or not he would, but we all watched him play in the NFL from 2006 on. On the open market does anyone think Hawk would have attracted that kind of offer? And while a lot of the money on his new deal is probably back loaded, according to one source, he counts $6.531M against the cap this season. That's number five on the roster going into the 2012 season. Even his staunchest fans have to admit Hawk is nowhere near the fifth most valuable player on the roster, don't they?

    This is what McGinn had to say about Hawk in his season-end grades column:
    McGinn gave him a D and IMO he earned that grade: He didn't participate in one turnover play. Not one.


    I hope but don't expect Thompson to either waive him (which would save a small amount on the cap and about $4.4M in cash) or gets him to agree to receive less in salary. He's "not that bad" but he certainly isn't a three-down LB - he needs to come off the field on passing downs. And frankly, he's not even a good two-down LB vs. the run. IMO he's not even as good as Bishop and he's taking up way too much in resources in cap space and money. But I like his haircut. Let's hope it comes with a new kick arse attitude.

    I don't think his stremilined coifure will make him any faster or anymore athletic. He wasn't Samson before and he won't be him afterwards. He will remain a liability!
