    It's not even the injuries themselves that upset me... It's that I keep thinking they're coming back within a couple weeks then just suddenly, 3 weeks become year. WTF?

    Looks like Brady, now Neal, Barrnet, Burnett, Harrel, Martin are on IR

    Thats 6 starters/or vital back ups on IR just for defense


    Then you got Clay, Pickett, Chillar, missing time..


    at least 9 defensive players?? Wow

    I am having trouble just keeping up with the new names of the players and now having to know the back up names. I can defiantly say I am learning more about everyone on the 53 man roster this year than any other year.

    wow, I've never seen anything like this. It's almost getting laughable.

    Do you guys think that it's a conditioning/training thing??

    The conditioning of this team is just PATHETIC! Fire the conditioning and strength team. They obviously did NOT get this team ready to play football. ARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH

    Training and conditioning isn't the problem, at least for some of the injuries. Grant, Finley, Harrell and Barnett all suffered in-game injuries due to weird hits, being landed on wrong or something to that nature. No amount of conditioning will prevent those. Same can be said for Pickett and Jenkins, though they haven't missed significant time.

    Matthews seems to have a recurring problem with his hamstring. It kept him out all pre-season both this and last year. I'm not an athletic trainer, so I don't know if that's a skills and conditioning injury or something else.

    Honestly I don't remember all of the other injuries. I know Poppinga has a knee and Neal has a shoulder, but that's about it.

    Well I will say this, because Green Bay has most of their draft picks over the past several years we should be great. We've had 21 Premium Picks through trading down and using our own picks. That being said TT doesn't have a great track record for 2nd round picks. Your 1st, 2nd & 3rd Round Picks are all classified as Premium Picks. 1st and 2nd Round Picks should be either Impact Players or Starters. TT has done most of his damage from Rd 3 on and if he had success with Pro Bowl type Players in Rounds 1 and 2 then Green Bay would be unstoppable. Other then Jennings & Collins we've basically whiffed in Rd 2 getting mostly players who seem to be later Rd picks and not impact players. We know that of the 2010 draft our 2nd & 3rd round picks are now gone for the year on IR which means again no production from those picks this season, but just look at TT draft history. If he could only get the early rounds right then GB would be more then elite.

    Terrance Murphy if not mistaken had such a freak thing happen, you can't blame Ted

    Colledge has been ok..not a bust but not a world beater

    Brandon Jackson like it or not IS the STARTING rb, and has done some good running in spurts..

    Nelson has shown flashes of being good, but also has a case of fumbleitis

    WOW. That 2007 draft is horrible. The best player drafted was probably Crosby.

    I hope Mike Neal doesn't end up being a Justin Harrell. He looked really good in the one game he played this year. I just hope his injuries aren't recurring each year.

    Yeah my only thing is that your Starters and Pro Bowl type players should be coming from your premium picks. We have had more success with Rd 3 on. I expect 2nd Round Picks to be more like Collins & Jennings and 1st Round picks to definitely start and potentially become Pro Bowlers. If TT could get this part right then the Pack would be unstoppable, but of course all teams could say the same thing.

    Per Mike Neals Twitter:

    mneal96 "Love the support and positive vibe from #packnation. I will be back next year stronger than ever. #blessed."

    Guess that says everything there.
