Re: Feel bad for Love

I follow the Packers closely and I have never heard anything but praise from every single back up QB he has had in the QB room with him. I think this is mostly just drumming up stories to get clicks. I fully expect Rodgers to treat Jordan with respect and to connect quite well with him as a person,...

Re: 2021 NFL Draft

I could see Savon Scarver making a team as a kick return specialist. He is a stud on kickoff returns! One of the best I have ever seen. He could also play a little WR for a team as well if he develops his skills in that department. I've always wondered why we don't use him on punt returns as well. ...

Re: Around the Horn discusses Jordan Love

I have a problem with the so-called inexperienced Receivers. While they didn’t start, Nathan and Scarver each played extensively for 2 years, plus Bright and the tight ends also had a lot of playing time prior to 2019. A lot of the problem was the new coaching staff. I agree there were multiple iss...

Re: Miller 1st half: 0-5 fg, 0-4 3pt

Miller is in the top 5 in the conference (and leads the team) in a few categories related to taking care of the ball. Maybe Smith likes the fact that he doesn’t turn it over. I’m sure many of you will claim that is because he shots it as soon as he gets it. Every shot is pretty much a TO so that st...
