Dan Grimm, 1941-2018

Fedya ·
Another member of the 1965 championship team who was selected by Atlanta in the expansion draft , Grimm played guard for three seasons for the Packers. Apparently he died last Thursday, but I didn't see any notice until today. :(

Edmunds and James right there for the taking and trades back for a 5 and a pick next year? That's just weird. If he got #91 it would have been cool, but #147? Now trades back up with more resources this year?

Weird. Last week, Dennis Clairidge who appeared on his playing card for the Falcons in a Packer uniform passed away. This week Dan Grimm....same story. Anybody got a picture of Favre in his Falcon uniform on a Packer card?

It was weird, and real grades are a long way off, just initial feelings: I absolutely loved the Burks and Madison picks. There hasn't been an ILB in Green Bay with Burks' speed/potential in coverage since Barnett. Madison comes from a fast-paced passing offense so I'm sure he'll need work on his three-point stance, but he's also the only real O-lineman they drafted. The corners are concerning. Jackson is not known for his man skills but how do you pass on that value even if you have to run...

My thoughts on the draft: Trades : Gute killed it here. Don't think I've ever seen as good a trio of trades in the draft in years. They dropped back 4 picks in the first and likely picked a guy they might have drafted anyways. And all they needed to get back to 18 was a third round pick, which they got back into the third using the extra 4th and 5th rounders they had. They already had 9 picks in rounds 1-5 so using a 4th and 5th to trade into the third round made a ton of sense. Looking at...

We've got a new defensive skipper. Based on reputation, I can safely say that Mike Pettine has exhaustively reviewed tape of every single player on the roster that lines up on D. He knows what he needs to put his system in place. What did Blake Martinez say a few weeks ago about when he met with Pettine early in the offseason? He preached "No missed assignments. No mental errors." Accountability. We'd all like the sexy top 15 defensive edge rusher. You can never have too many impact pass...

Monday night on TCM brings a bunch of movies based on fairy tales. I don't know that The Wacky World of Mother Goose , at 4:30 AM Tuesday, is a TCM premiere, but I don't recall ever seeing it on the schedule before. It's an animated version of the Mother Goose stories, with the voice of Margaret Rutherford as Mother Goose and animation done by Rankin/Bass, the same people who brought us Christmas specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer . Earlier in the evening, at 3:00 AM Tuesday,...

Welcome to another edition of Fedya's “Movies to Tivo” Thread, for the week of May 7-13, 2018. First, I need to apologize for the fact that TCM pulled We Go to Monte Carlo from the schedule at the last minute I should have realized something was up when they had a 90-something minute movie scheduled in a 75-minute slot. Anyhow, we finally get to our Star of the Month this week. We've also got some more movie series, and Mothers' Day on Sunday which means yet another showing of Mildred Pierce...

Million dollar idea. Packers backfield nick name. Ministry of Silly Walks. Of course they'd be penalized into a 0-16 record. The Offense better be reading this. Now that's an EZ celebration.

listening to local Bucs talk radio there was not anyone that sounded all excited about the possibility of taking James for the Bucs. They were saying he was a great athlete but rarely did enough on the field to make a difference. Any many of the callers were FSU alum. So whether James or Edumunds are all that is as much in debate as whether or not Alexander is all that. I have no idea how these guys are going to translate to pro ball but hoping Alexander is better than Rollins or the already...

Problem is they are probably all gone by #45. The question is will Glutes package some chum to move up in RD2 or climb back into RD3? If he gets back into RD3 I hope it's the top half because he already has the first pick in RD4.

I'd actually trust the super homers of Florida college football. I think it's pretty safe that Alexander will be a better fit than Randall and definitely better than Rollins. Both tweener projects.

I think it was Gute taking advantage of a team that is all-in this year. The Saints pick at worst is #32. However, the Saints pick is one injury away from being a top 10-12 pick and that injury risk is a 39 year old QB.

Possibly all gone by #45 - We'll see Nobody expected Landry still on the board....or Josh Jackson. Lotta draft left yet. Reading back through older articles & finding out things here in Dallas - Seems Packers were really, REALLY trying to trade up & get Minkah. When that didn't work, they traded down & "settled" for Jaire while picking up more draft capital. Dolphins probably wanted the moon to move up 3 spots - good for Gutey standing his ground on value. Although I don't see...

Gute was asked about 2019 prospects with respect to the trade. He gave a non answer like Ted would, only difference is Gute was smiling when he answered. And was awake. Does he look for a QB heir in 2019?

That's exactly what I was thinking. AZ didn't pay too much to move up. Seems like Packers could have easily made a similar move. But after seeing how everything worked out, I'm glad it didn't happen. Time will tell, but based upon what I've read, there is a very good chance that Alexander ends up being as good, if not better, than Minkah. So I'm happy with Alexander and a future 1st.

Re: 2018 NFL DRAFT Viewing Thread

Griffen is interesting. I'd guess top of 5th, but hobbits seem to be in fashion this year and it only takes one GM. The hand aside, he's awfully small for a linebacker. He's probably a Joe Thomas-type in the dime, and special teams. Hand work is so important in the pros and length can be too. If a team sees him as the nickel guy also, he could see the third round

The top QB was the shortest, the top 3 corners were all small, as is Kolton Miller (lean vs. short) and neither receiver has great size. Roquon Smith is also lacks desired size.

Perhaps the death of Verne Troyer this week has given the Pack a soft spot for midgets? Ok, bad joke. Truth be told, I really don't care how big or small guys are as long as they can play. Being 5'8" 167 lbs. myself I personally have some love for the vertically and horizontally challenged individuals of the NFL.

Griffin is 6’/225 lbs. with 4.38 speed. He can bulk up without losing much speed. Shaq Thompson does just fine in Carolina at 230.
