    Don't care if Peppers is a prima donna or not. That guy is straight up out this world. Would KILL to have him on our team.

    It's crazy he wants to be an OLB. Just imagine a 6 7 guy out there covering tight ends. It would be an automatic first down every time.

    If Kampman is furious....screw him. We don't need. I've had several beers tonight, so I don't feel bad saying that.

    Not when that 6 7 guy is faster than a lot of Wrs out there...

    But the key thing is not speed, both Harrison and Woodley are slow. It's agility, and Peppers has it. He needs to drop a few pounds, but he has it.

    Peppers is athletic enough that he could probably play any position in the NFL if he wanted to. You remember watching him play basketball for North Carolina? That dude is sick. Probably one of the best physical specimens I've ever seen.

    Hes gone. There is no reason to keep him and pay him what he deserves. I like him as a person and will cheer for him to get a huge payday somewhere else, and hopefully he will be inducted into the packers HOF someday

    Kampman will only sign a contract where he plays DE, that just the facts. The Packers position is extremely weak at this point, Kampman's future is in his hands.

    Kampman sucks as a LB... Why would the Pack want to sign him for a DE position? Undersized and coming off of a major injury. Let him go somewhere else. Sign Porter for a one year fix and to prep another young player for 2011.

    Because, yes, he didn't play well as an OLB, but he had 8 games to learn. I think they believe he can still learn.

    Moreso, we play almost 70% in our nickel and dime packages. We lack pass rush. He can provide it.

    I don't think they'll tag him, but they'll definitely make an offer for him, for at least have him as a positional player.

    If he's going to re-sing, it's another issue.

    I think Kampman's priority is to play DE, which is in his mind none negotiable.

    The more I think about this the more I'm on the fence about it. I love Kampman and he's a good player, but it wouldn't be the worst thing if he left either. I can't wait to see what happens. I think either way it will be good for our team.

    Does anyone believe Kampman will sign a contract where he will play OLB? Unless we force him by tagging him, he will not sign a contract with Green Bay.

    I'm sure you're right. I'm just saying, I would still love to have him on our team in any capacity, but if he decides to leave I think our defense will be fine with out him too. Weird situation.

    I can't wait either. Expect the unexpected with all the shocking news circulating around the NFL every season. Off topic, but did anyone read about Ladainian getting cut by the Chargers today?

    I doubt anybody would give much for Kampman, so the Pack releases him or keeps him. I'd bet he will be released.

    Tomlinson would be the best 3rd down back in the NFL. But he'll want feature back money, and probably feature back status. We shouldn't give him.

    Yeah, a running back is not what we should be looking for in free agency.

    We should try to get Vai Sikahema out of retirement.

    The thing with LT is that he has yet to win anything. I can see him signing with a team that has a shot at the Super Bowl for less money than say the lions.

    I can see LT signing with Green Bay for less money, we are one of the few contenders for a Super Bowl that is not loaded at the running back position. He has a better chance at getting playing time and a shot at the big dance with the Packers than he does on other teams.

    I am not saying it will happen, especially with Green still in the mix. But I see a remote possibility.

    I just don't see LT signing with a team like the lions at this point in his career, the team has to have a shot.

    We can fill our need at strong safety with Chuck Cecil, and get Vince Workman to be our third down back. Perfect.
