    I know, I know... it is PFT.com again.. but this kinda looks like a agent type leak..

    In addition, did anyone notice the NFL is now sponsoring PFTalk?

    This would be great to finally find out one way or another.

    I'd wouldn't mind having him back on the squad, cause I think he's a good guy with some overcome-able weaknesses.
    Then again, it sure would be alright with me if we traded him for a dynamo RB....

    Wait, I'm retarded. Our RBs are fine. Maybe.



    And yeah, I saw that NFL is a sponsor of PFT now. I click the ads every time I head to PFT, just so an accurate representation of their influence is shown to the NFL


    Edit #3: Trade deadline is the day before he gets back. I'm just off today. :doh:

    I hope we can get him back.
    Our receievers are going to take a mighty beating this year due to overuse, which is due to no running game, which is due to to the O-line unable to create holes which is due to the ZBS which is obviously not working.
    We might really need ths guy!!!!!!!!1

    I........... .... ... respectfully disagree.


    Why are the WRs taking a beating due to overuse? It's not like an RB who gets hit every time he you run the ball..

    Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne have gotten plenty of use in the past, and I've never heard of them breaking down for that reason.

    I'd like to see K-rob back. I think he will come out with something to prove. So he could be great.
    As far as RB.......we don't need any........what we NEED is the o-line to start opening up some holes.

    I think K-Rob gets used in KR or PR at first. That will get him either into good playing condition or killed. Woodson should never be put into those positions. Once he gets into sync, I see Bodiford moved to PS or cut, and a really scarey 4-5 WR set being used a lot. A nightmare to stop.

    retiredgrampa I agree the whole way with you. First of all, Woodson should never be in a punt or kick off team. He is to valuable at CB. Second the best way for Krob to get involved slowly is as a returner and especially now that blackmon is out. We are going to have a good season as long as we take what is given to us and the D remains solid.

    I just got from a reliable source that Koren has been advised he WILL be reinstated. I'm not sure how true this is, but all indications appear it's a true comment.

    He will be playing again.
    His first game back will be against the Broncos on Monday Night Football.

    Any idea if he's getting the "Tank Johnson" treatment - while suspended Johnson has had full use of the team facilities and playbook etc. Have there been any K-Rob sightings in GB?

    Koren is not allowed to use or be at any Packer facilities during his suspension. Koren has been working out in Phoenix, AZ.

    Strictly NFL. The Packers WANTED Koren in THEIR facilities. It would help him with learning the system more fluently and also would have helped them keep an eye on their investment.

    You might remember Brett Favre speaking out against Koren not being able to be at the facilities.


    I think this is the press conference that has Brett talking about Koren and being suspended.

    IMO, Koren, to his credit, has done it the right way. He's kept a low profile, not mouthed off, kept training out of town, just bided his time. There's no real reason for the Commish to punish him further. If he hasn't earned another chance, who has? The fact that he apparently bonded somewhat with Favre last year(or so it was reported) his chances to excel now are enhanced, IMO. It would be great to get a return guy like Koren back there to give the other teams something to be concerned about. I'm sure, in my own mind, that this suspension has sobered him up in more ways than one. I look for good things soon.

    Koren's application has not been considered yet.

    His first possible date would be October 17th, but that is optimistic.

    Also, Koren Robinson has never returned punts in his career. With him coming back after a year of rust I think there is a better chance you will be Brett Favre back there than Koren Robinson.

    He was a great kickoff returner in MN 2 and 1/2 years ago, but returning punts would be brand new to him.

    And all of this is predicated on IF he is reinstated.
