GREEN BAY PACKERS
I still like Ridley in the draft, and I disagree with Vegas . The thing about Ridley is he is great route runner. And I don't care about the combine. Guess who did bad in the combine in past? Antonio Brown. Why is he great? He's a great route runner, just as Ridley is. Guess whos one of the fastest Packers? Jeff Janis, and we all know how successful he is. Speed is good to have, but it's not a must have and he has a 4.46 which is more then enough speed.
I just can't get on board with the whole Keenum thing Vegas. He was nothing more than a game manager and when they needed him in the playoffs he wet the bed. That the Redskins were anywhere near .500 with the lack of offensive talent on that team said alot about Cousins.
As far as the Packers CB situation? I don't see it as being any worse than last year. We will still sign someone like House and probably draft a couple.... one probably very early. We have been by far the worst in the league for couple years now, it's not like playing all rookies would hurt.
I've been thinking same thing of cousins vs. Keenum. Keenum does great and they don't re-sign him? I can't figure out the adoration cousins got in free agency. I think it will be like flaccid contract, but with worse results.
As for cb, I think for the glaring need they have, they end up moving up to get an impact cb. With the trade of Randall and miss on fuller, I think their hands are forced on this move. If they can't move up on a premiere cb, your thoughts of dropping down may occur -- more chances on a hit on cb, and outside of top 10 1st round CBS, you will be looking late 1st to 2nd for next draft value of cbs in the draft.
Argued this a bunch...Cousins. He's not an upgrade over Keenum. Those who think so grossly underestimated what Keenum did for the Vikes last year. At best Cousins has a better chance of replicating what Kennum did last year than Keenum himself may be capable of doing. I don't think the Vikes got better at QB. At best, they stayed the same. I say that because Keenum was very, very good for them last year and caught lightning in a bottle.
Chatted with a couple of buddies this past weekend....none of us could remember a time in which the team was this bad at a critical position. Conerback. You need 3 quality starters, I'd argue you may need 4. GB has one and hes coming off of surgery.
It's bad. Really bad. Need will dictate what GB does in the draft and that rarely turns out good.
