Well, now we have no returner. But argument could be made we didn't even with him.


Edit, we claimed some Tyler Ervin. Never heard of him.

Ervin was drafted in the fourth-round by the Houston Texans in 2016. He has totalled over 1,200 yards as a kick/punt returner in 31 career games as a Texan and Jaguar.

I see Trevor Davis was just waived.
Could we see a return to Green Bay?

It's pretty sad that this far into the season and they still have no plan as to a return man. They just keep churning and churning rejects from other teams.

Well.....at least you can say that the return game has remained consistent!
(Consistently bad that is!)

I went to school with Tyler and he was a bigger standout than James Jones was at San Jose State.

As a RB, he has the potential to fit in the mold of a Tarik Cohen or Darren Sproles. I wouldn't hold my breath, but he's definitely dynamic. He posted 300 yards rushing in one of our rivalry games.

If he can produce in the return game, great, but seeing what Mannega has taught his unit over the year... anything can happen.

I guess it is easier to get rid of the one punt return guy rather than the other 10 who are supposed to be blocking for him. The punter returners have no time is the problem. Might as well have nobody punt returning and rush 11 to try to block the punt.

New coach needed for st

Perhaps our ST coach is not very good, but IIRC he was the last guy we signed and...an afterthought.

However, just because he may not be the "cat's meow", an equally plausible explanation, and likely a contributing factor for our special teams woes, is that we may not have a very 'physical' team. Coverage on special teams, as much as any aspect of the sport is about controlled aggressive animal behavior, and we may not have that many "ass-kicking rip your lungs out" athletes on the team.

Food for thought.

Nonstopdrivel (20h) : These Bucks are running roughshod through the NBA. I wish basketball inspired me with a tenth of the passion that football does.
Mucky Tundra (21h) : How did Andy Reid celebrate yesterdays win? “I had a cheeseburger and went to bed.”
Zero2Cool (22h) : Spend it on OG or WR, those are the too biggest needs. WR obviously clear 1 need.
KRK (22h) : I rather spend the money on the interior of both lines and ILB
RickLM (20-Jan) : Yes. Hunter Henry is someone I want. How do you feel about Corey Littleton? I think he's worth a look too.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Sign TE HUNTER HENRY

Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Kris Richard for DC?

Mucky Tundra (19-Jan) : Can't count them out after last week but I doubt Vrabel will make poor choices like O'Brien did
Mucky Tundra (19-Jan) : Chiefs falling behind early again
Cheesey (19-Jan) : On any given day. If we didn’t belong, we wouldn’t be here.

Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Play clean game and Packers can win easily
PhoenixPackerFan60 (19-Jan) : I think they have a chance. Not a good one, but a chance.
PhoenixPackerFan60 (19-Jan) : Every single prognosticator on TV says Packers don't belong in this game. Every one is baffled by the 14 wins. Even a couple said this team is an 8-8 caliber team or 9-7, at best but somehow stumb
gbguy20 (19-Jan) : t-minus 7 hours
gbguy20 (19-Jan) : game day.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Let's fucking go!!!

Mucky Tundra (18-Jan) : Now I'm getting nostalgic over the 96 line: Jones, Dotson, Brown and White
Mucky Tundra (18-Jan) : tbf=to be fair
Mucky Tundra (18-Jan) : i remember being bummed about losing Jurko to Jaguars but quickly got over it with Santana Dotson
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : The Brett Favre?
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : tbf?
Mucky Tundra (18-Jan) : Though tbf I only became a Packers fan towards the end of the 93 season so that's why I didn't know :)
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Jurko had 92 in year one and two, then offered it to White. (which he didn't have to do, but HAD to, lol)
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Really? I thought you were being a smart ass. I take my wise ass comment back.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Packers best draft slot is going to be pick 30.
Mucky Tundra (18-Jan) : Didn't know he forked over #92 to White
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : He was #92, know your history and sit down son!
Mucky Tundra (18-Jan) : Jurkovic was #64
