    Wow! I hope Barnett steps it up and brings his A game (optimistically anticipating a 2011 regular season).

    Still hoping that he re-signs a long term deal with us.

    Hi guys, Saints fan here...just lurkin.

    What are you all's thoughts on Hawk. We were really high on him coming out of college. When there were trade talks earlier in the season I was telling people we should make a play for him, then all the injuries hit you guys and it seemed like Hawk stepped it up. But I guess it was one of those things where numbers do not equal the production. Similar to our situation with R.Bush.

    How do you think Hawk would perform as a SAM linebacker in a 4-3? How was he when you guys ran a 4-3 a few years ago?

    I think he'll be back with a new deal. Just couldn't have gotten it done by noon tomorrow when the CBA expires. If he was on the roster when that happened, he'd have been guaranteed $10.5M. Packers wouldn't pay that. No one would. He's a good player who knows the system. I think he'll eventually re-sign. He's a CBA related casualty, like so many guys in the league this past week or so.

    Well Martin and Lee are gone for sure. Just from his statement. It is clear he isn't saying Hawk is gone gone yet. He wants to work on a deal and said it explicitly. Hopefully Hawk can get a fair deal for him as well and stays. I don't think he is mad because it was pretty clear this was coming Super Bowl or not.

    Busy off season for Gb. First the shift of Rb coach to WR coach and now all of this. We'll see how this all pans out.

    Dang. Going to have to get a Matthews jersey now to stay relevant. Hopefully they can resign him.

    I didn't like him when he played LB in the 4-3. He can't cover RBs and TEs man-to-man.

    His greatest asset to us is that he's assignment sure, and has great command of our scheme.

    I only see him drawing interest of 3-4 teams that need a playcaller and tend to play zone. He's not a great blitzer, he's not a great thumper, and he isn't very athletic.

    But, as I said, he's incredibly bright, he commands the defense very well, and he's ok to good at everything.

    I'd be surprised if AJ isn't back in Green Bay next year. It sucks though that they didn't manage to get this done faster - it isn't as though this issue coming to a head wasn't abundantly obvious a long time ago. But, like the CBA, for whatever reason, nothing gets done until the 11th hour.

    I think AJ likes playing for the Pack and being in GB. I think the Pack wants him back. Get it done guys.

    Here's hoping a deal can be reached and A J gets back in green and yellow. Dang.

    Ted is smart enough to get a deal done with him! We probably hear something before CBA ends tomorrow. I am guessing there will be a lot of activity from all the teams before end of CBA.
