    That's not his tat...

    And you're right, I doubt anyone would have the balls to call him a pussy in his face for having that gayish poney tattoo (not that there's anything wrong with that).

    But unicorns pissing rainbow and pro football players shouldn't be together.

    Casey Matthews is a beast and whatever team getting him will be getting a CM3 on their hands. If they Packers could get a hold of him, oh my lord. That would be terrifying for anyone else lining up opposite.

    Having a duo of Matthews brothers lining up for the Pack would be a dream come true. It'll all depend on how our offseason is put together next year. We have pressing needs at CB, OLB, OL, S. If Casey plays consistently for 1 more season he might warrant a 1st to 2nd round pick which I doubt TT would spend on an ILB.

    I would think that he would spend it on a ILB even over OLB for the simple fact that we have no good young players developing at the position and Barnett is getting older. TT always looks to get young guys in to fill positions before they become a pressing need. We have Jones at OLB, whether you like it or not he is young and showing good promise. They will not replace him unless he takes a major steps backwards this year and none of the other young guys show anything good.

    Barnett is 2 years older than Rodgers... He's not getting older.

    Its not the years, its the mileage! His position takes a lot more punishment. :box:

    I am not saying hes used up. I think he has some good years to come.

    Barnett is our long term starter, we have Hawk there who TT is very confident about and Chillar just got signed to a contract extension. I don't know about Desmond Bishop and have a feeling he won't be brought back. I doubt TT wants to spend a high pick for a 4th string ILB.

    Yes he is only two years older than Rodgers but he has started almost every game for 8 years compared to 2 years. LB is a very physically demanding position and he will be 30 next year. I am not saying he is going to be replaced soon but injures do happen more often when you get over that 30 hump. I'm just saying I could see TT take an ILB early next year, he always picks some head scratchers and this could be one if the right guy is still there.

    It's really early to be talking 2011 draft, but I don't think picking an ILB would be a head scratcher at all. In fact, I would be surprised if they did not select one given Barnett's age, Hawk's contract, and Bishop's frustration with his PT. I think their top picks will be at the skill positions, though - RB, WR, CB. Those positions have been largely neglected in the last two drafts.

    Yeah you gotta select best player available at your needs when you pick at 32

    I totally agree that we could very well be picking an ILB with the first pick, I just don't think Barnett is the reason.

    This D plays with 2 ILB, and we haven't found a reliable guy opposite Barnett. If we had 2 studs at ILB, this team would be that much improved. It's not like Hawk or Chillar were good last year. They were decent in some areas...

    Try out Bishop. I think he could be a surprise. And the staff knows something if they gave Chillar that incentive laden contract. They would not have offered it if he couldn't do it.

    I do agree though, Hawk needs to step up a bit in my opinion but I think he is a decent LB at best, not the star we were hoping.

    I think Bishop will be a career backup player, nothing really more than that. Maybe he can sub in on certain downs like pass based or nickel formation. However as a full time starter he's absolutely a nightmare. He's slow to pick up the play and takes poor angles on run plays. He's like one of those guys who excel at the lower level but won't really get up to NFL speed. Just look at his performances in the preseason and compare that to how he plays in the regular season. He plays tremendously in the preseason against 2nd and 3rd stringers but fails to make plays against the starters.

    Bishop is actually a decent player but he has his strengths and his weaknesses. Unfortunately his weakness is pass coverage so we should stick to putting him in on rushing downs. We did pick up a guy that has some great potential for the future in Alex Joseph. The guy has some amazing numbers

    Alex Joseph, (6-2, 240lbs ) ILB, Temple Joseph’s stats include a 4.62 40 time, good 1.63 ten yard time, 33” vertical, and 9’11” broad jump. Where he excels is his agility numbers : 4.09 short shuttle and 6.69 3 cone drill. Those agility numbers are quicker than all ILB prospects and OLB prospects. In fact, Joseph’s three cone drill is quicker than every FS and CB in the 2010 draft, and only two of the top CB’s had better short shuttle times! Considering his size, that is an amazing change of direction ability!

    We will have to keep our eyes on this one. Hopefully he will pan out and challenge for a backup position this year.
