    Hello all. I am Joe Arrigo and some of you may know of me from other Packers websites for my O.T.S. (On The Sidelines) blog/articles that are Packers (and NFL) rumors. If you want my credentials, please read my bio on my site.

    Please feel free to go check them out at my blog site, joeslockerroom.wordpress.com (I cann't post the link yet, sorry).

    I just found this site (a few weeks ago) and see some familiar names.

    Joe

    You can go ahead and post your rumors when ever you like..

    While some ( maybe even me) will take your "rumors" with a grain a salt it is always interesting to read during the offseason

    Oh, no, it's Arrgo?!?!?

    Ah, the painful, painful days between the Super Bowl and Draft Day - chock full of nonsense, spin and smok-n-mirrors.

    I'd have to admit that for the better part of 5 years, I have followed all the rumors - even Randy Moss. Every year, TT does nothing. What's worse is the year TT made his only big splash, acquiring Woodson, nobody had a clue until the moments leading up to the announcement.

    Feel free to partake in that fruity beverage if you wish.

    It is a roller coaster and the worst of it is the fact there is not even hope that we will be able to address the O-line in all these rumors.

    With the strong possiblity Peppers lands in Chicago (having no early round picks) and Kampman walking on to one of our rivals, thats 4 games of Peppers/Allen nightmares with same, older and more injury prone line we had last year.

    I will always have the start of last season in the back of my mind (4-4 record) if we start next year with the O-line not being addressed.

    Chicago are the Redskins of the north.

    They don't scare me, no matter how many FAs they get.

    Kampman in Minnesota, rotating with Edwards?

    That thought might be enough for TT to keep Kampman, but that kinda retards the growth of the team. Interested in how that one turns out.

    As I have seen over the years, those Packers/bears games can be really brutal no matter how well either team is doing.

    A player like Peppers with nothing to play for but to make a highlight real does give me some concern.

    I"ll definitely be taking a grain of salt when reading Joe's rumors. They are entertaining to think about, not saying that.

    I think the bears will target Kampman over Peppers. Like us the bears don't really spend too much in the FA either. Although they did make a huge trade for Cutler, I don't see them dishing out the same kind of attention for Peppers.

    Fwiw, I hear Robinson is the Packers top target in free agency and a name to watch closely is Keith Bullock from Tennessee.

    I also heard members of the Packers met with Campbell for a while but it wasn't an "official" meeting.

    Only the Bears have had some success in the last decade.

    Really? When? When they went to the SB and lost it?

    Or when they threw the future of their franchise away by some well-calculated trades?

    Sorry. I was being sarcastic. I was trying to mock Bear fans and did a poor job. My bad.

    Sorry, didn't catch the sarcasm...

    But I find it funny, I liked the comparison I made.

    I was actually worried when they got Cutler, and a little bit also when they traded for Adams.

    Much like Washington was perceived as a good team when they got Haynesworth...

    With their aging D, poor OL, and non-existant receivers, and with no early round picks, I think the Bears are 2 or 3 years distant of being contenders, at least. Despise of who they get in FA, they simply have too many holes to fill...

    I really wasn't worried at all about Cutler. I was never very impressed with him, even when he played in Denver. Yeah, he has a pretty strong arm, but he's a loose cannon, a head case, and seeing guys like that makes me soooooo thankful that Aaron Rodgers is our quarterback. I can't wait until Rodgers gets the respect he deserves in this league.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Packers traded back picking up an extra 2 and a 3rd. I think they can get the player(s) they want a few slots back and a couple teams to watch are Cleveland, KC and St. Louis.

    I believe that the best trading partner will be Tampa Bay. They have 2 high second rounders that could really help us.

    Trying to predict draft day trades is like picking next year's Superbowl winner.

    You have some basis in doing so (needs, M.O.s of GMs, etc), but it almost never happens the way you think it will.
