Ted Thompson acknowledged he avoided Wisconsin Badgers because he felt the pressure was too much. Thompson was right, at least with Biegel -- someone he drafted anyway.

Quote:

Biegel says being released by the Green Bay Packers -- the team that selected him in the fourth round of the 2017 draft -- was the best thing for his career. As a kid who was from Wisconsin and who attended the University of Wisconsin, Biegel put too much pressure on himself playing for his hometown NFL team.

"A weight was lifted off my shoulder," Biegel said about being cut by Green Bay in September 2018 and then signed by New Orleans. "I got back to the purity of playing football."

I know it is frustrating to Badger fans and people in WI in general but there is a lot of truth in it. It's a little different when players live in larger cities. Not so much in the Green Bay megalopolis. There really isn't anywhere to go to get away.

Let me tell you what: I grew up in cranberry country, and if you want to become a millionaire by the age of 25 but don't have the talent or wherewithal to play professional sports, there aren't many better or surer ways to get there than owning a cranberry farm. The lifestyle is hell—the bogs require year-round care, and you never get to take a vacation—but the money is amazing.

Still say I wouldn't have minded TJ Watt's 12.5 sacks, 5 force fumbles and 1 Int.

Porforis (7h) : Same, NSD.
Zero2Cool (10h) : FEAR THE MOTHERFUCKING DEER YO!
Nonstopdrivel (19h) : These Bucks are running roughshod through the NBA. I wish basketball inspired me with a tenth of the passion that football does.
Mucky Tundra (20h) : How did Andy Reid celebrate yesterdays win? “I had a cheeseburger and went to bed.”
Zero2Cool (20h) : Spend it on OG or WR, those are the too biggest needs. WR obviously clear 1 need.
KRK (21h) : 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) : Henry Ruggs III to Packers at 30.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Kris Richard for DC?
beast (20-Jan) : Nope, 72 and we don't have the CBs for his system
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Wade Phillips for DC?
Cheesey (20-Jan) : Must have been a Chicago fan
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : bear?

buckeyepackfan (19-Jan) : Check
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : @mattschneidman #Packers punter JK Scott (illness) is expected to play in today’s NFC Championship Game after being added to the injury report as questionable yesterday, per source.
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) : Matt LaFleur might have lost play calling duties to Arthur Smith if he didn't get GB HC job. Crazy
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!!!
gbguy20 (19-Jan) : fuck yes. ALL IN!
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : #Packers activate safety Raven Greene from IR
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : I remember Dotson arriving in the airport with a leather jacket. The guy looked like a difference maker. he was just average, but that was enough
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
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : John Jurkovic??
