It was 5-6 years ago at a game in Buffalo in December. The Pack struggled all game and were losing by 3 I believe in the 4th quarter. With the ball around the 25 yard line 2nd and short, Jordy runs the fly and is 15 yards past everyone.  I am standing up in my Green and Gold screaming as it is going to be a 75 yd td pass - the ball is perfectly thrown - and it goes thru his hands.  I’ll never forget his anguish, on the field, and then on the sideline.  

Having grown up a farm boy, I rolled with laughter at the story of him taking teammates back to his farm and having them impregnate a cow by artificial insemination.  

I miss Jordy, but am thankful for the many football memories and off the field stories of care and compassion. 

I was there. 3rd row up behind the Packers bench. Signaling touchdown whilst the ball was still 15 ft from Jordy. I felt like the idot Viking fans signaling "Good" as Blair Walsh's kick was going wide left! 

We must have been close together as we were 4-5 rows behind the Packer bench. The Bills fans were silent as they saw the play evolving, and then jubilant as I like you, felt like that idiot Viking fan. 

You weren't  the Packer fan  that got thrown out for throwing popcorn at the little girl who was getting her picture taken with Buffalo Bill were you?

No. 😂. I was with my extended family of 12. There were 6 Packer fans and 6 Bills fans.  And I took my dad to his first and only pro football game at age 83.

I remember when Jordy was drafted. Other "highly rated" WR's, like Donnie Avery & Devin Thomas going before him. TT was brilliant in drafting him. 

Good times. Enjoy retirement Jordy.

TT traded back and got Jordy too.  Remember some fans wanted them to stay put and draft that TE Keller........

Reminded me a little of when TT traded back with the Patriots.  Pats got that garbage WR from Florida and Packers got Jennings.  I know TT gets a lot of flack these days but he was as good at the draft as anyone from 2005-2010.

No, just worried about many of my farmer friends and family members who have been having financial problems for a long time.  Oh, and farm suicides are up dramatically. maybe you have investigated some? 

It is very sad that it seems like family farms are extremely hard to keep going and the only thing that can be done in some cases is to sell the farm and land to a corporation.  There's a certain character to family farms that corporate farms can't duplicate.  The more family farms that disappear, we lose a little bit of history and character with it.

I grew up on a family dairy farm that had been in the family for 130 years. My father forbid any of us from working on the farm after college - he had a graduate degree in economics and decided to return to the family farm in the early 1970s. He told us it would not be economically feasible as a career after his generation. We still own the land but it is now all rented out for pickles (technically cucumber) growing. 

The government incentives are set up for the Monsantos of the world, not small farms. 

Michigan Packer2 Your father is a wise man!  I didn'y grow up on a farm but a lot of my friends did- and you have to admire the work ethic farming/dairy farms instill but you still have to make a living.  Most of my friends unloaded the farms as soon as they inherited!

Bears apparently trade Jordan Howard to Philly for a 6th rounder next year.

Boy on its face, this seems like poor value for a good RB. I get that he might not be a perfect fit in Nagy's offense, but who is gonna replace him ? More wear on Cohen, or Mike Davis ??  If Pace is depending on the draft, good luck with that plan when you don't have any picks this year. 

Philly got a very good RB for a bargain price.

Same for my family.  My uncle was a very sucessful farmer and he highly discouraged his kids to continue working the farm once he retired and basically demanded that they go to college instead of farming.  He always said even as a medium sized farmer he had a hard time keeping up with the big farms.

That's a really weird trade, plus it's a 6th round pick in 2020 so they don't even get a pick this year. 

Howard's production dipped mostly because Nagy couldn't figure out how to use him but despite that, he still neared 1000 yards, had like 150 yards receiving, and grabbed 9 TD's. And he's like 24. 

The kid is obviously very talented. I don't get how you just dump that kind of talent for a flippin' 6th rounder. A very Giants-like trade.

Agreed.  And frankly it kind of ticks me off, why trade someone within your own conference that's likely going to make them nothing but stronger?  I can see trading him, but if you're going to trade him for almost nothing, trade him to the Pats or Dolphins or Bills, etc. where you're not helping to strengthen a team within your own conference.

Only took them 40 years to figure it out.

"You would have to be crazy to continue farming".  My dad.  

Funniest thing was when he'd get a massive subsidy check.  "Oh, that should maybe cover a part for one of the multiple tractors".

Or the teacher in one of my sister's econ classes talking about how many Mercedes you could buy vs. a tractor.

"Go plow a field in a Mercedes and tell me how luxurious it is".

Wonder what Eddie weighs right now...

 

I seriously hope he can get into good enough shape so that we don't see an article about his serious health problems when's he about 40. 

He seemed like a really good guy who just wasn't that into football but was so  good at it he had to do it. He only made about 7 million dollars playing football. That's a lot of money to most people, but it can go fast if you no experience in budgets and have too many hangers-on so hopefully he has a good money manager that can make that work for him. 

And he and his family were hurricane survivors who lived in temporary housing for years. He spent money to find them a home. Sadly, his home included home cooked meals. And many of us in the south know how delicious yet deadly they are. He seems like a big kid and a great person. I wish him well.

Packers re-sign the Whitewater Jesus!

 

Technically, GB didn't re-sign him as much as Jake decided to play football for another year.  JK was an exclusive rights free agent which GB tendered.  As a tendered ERFA his choice was to sign the tender or not play football next year.  Some choice. so he signed his tender. 

ERFA is another way of saying they are held hostage for another year.  So maybe they should be called imprisoned players. 

I for one hope Eddie can get his weight down and he gets a shot to make it again. 

Ugh the Browns.  I am surrounded by their fans and they all seem to want to talk smack to me about how they are now GB East.  I keep telling them come back to me when you actually win something.

Dorsey learned from Wolf's mistake - (Not giving Favre enough weapons) & in some ways TT w/Rodgers too. But get TO the playoffs first, then we'll talk about the 13 time World Champion Green Bay Packers.

Brownie fans.....

My joke of the day....

I got kicked out of the boy scouts. Got caught eating too many Brownies

You don't have to go north of Milwaukee for Kopps.  There is one not far from Miller Park, right off the freeway.  Some prefer Leon's, even closer to the park though they don't have burgers.

LeDuc's at the corner of Hwys 18 and 83 in Wales. Long lines all summer long. The best.

Wilson has been great since he joined the league. Consistently great production; double-digit wins every year (except one 9-7 season); threat passing and running; better than 3-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio; career QB rating of 100+; etc. He's the definition of a franchise QB who is in the midst of his prime. The contract numbers are big, but you don't let a franchise QB like that walk.

He's 75-36-1 in the regular season and has started every game for 7 years. He has 196 TDs against 63 interceptions. He's also rushed for 3600 yards. His best receiver has been Golden Tate and his offensive line has been awful for several of those years (Breno Giacomo for example). 

He's a Hall of Famer - maybe first ballot. 

Wilson is living off the first couple years when Lynch was a beast & oh yeah....he had a 2nd transmitter in his helmet where he kept communication with the HC through the entire play. ALL swept under the rug.

Put it this way....If Rodgers is on Seattle last year, do they go to the playoffs? I believe they do.

If Wilson is on Green Bay, they're drafting in top 5

The Chefs pick 29th, and they have 2 2nd round picks in 2020, Seahags get the lower of the 2 in 2020. 

So, essentially, Clark is traded for 2 2nd rounders since 29th is basically the same caliber player you'd be getting at the top of the 2nd. 

Not a bad haul for Schneider. They had just 4 picks in this years draft. 

Chiefs are finalizing a long term $$ for Clark. He'll be getting paid big bucks.
