This also hasn’t happened since 2005:

#Packers coach Matt LaFleur is changing the practice schedule, wants to hold joint training camp sessions with another team and vowed to build a culture rooted in discipline. There’s a new sheriff in Green Bay.

If I remember,  2005 was not a very good year.

Remember the Cheese League? The NFL training camps that were located in Wisconsin? Once per camp, the teams would "scrimmage" another team based at a UW college. We had the KC Chiefs, as the Home team, at UW-River Falls. They hosted the vikings who drove in from Winter Park for the day. The following camp KC hosted the New Orleans Saints who drove up from their camp at UW-Lacrosse. LaFleur's plans remind me of those days.

#Packers new Head Coach Matt LeFleur told reporters in Arizona this week he's watched every single play of Quarterback #Aaron Rodgers for the last 2 years. That's about 1500 snaps he's reviewed. 

Radio discussing this today who were there when LaFleur talked about this said LaFleur looked like he already has his game face on. He appears to really grinding when it comes to his plans for the 2019 Pack. 

LaFleur then said he looked back into Rodgers older film and one of the plays that stood out was in a game against the New York Jets and he plans to show the play to Rodgers when he meets with him at the start of offseason workouts on Apr. 8. 

“Some of the traits you always look for in a QB … they brought an internal cross-dog blitz and he hit Jordy (Nelson) over the middle,” LaFleur said via Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com. “It’s what we call our no-flinch. There was a free runner, I think it was Bart Scott came running in there free and just how he stood in the pocket and delivered an accurate ball and took (a hit), really he got folded in half like a suitcase. But that’s one of my all-time clips of him, one of my favorite clips of him.”

Where does Jordy rank in the top receivers in Green Bay. Of course Don Hutson would be #1 but I never saw him play. For guys in the last 50 years. I think it would go James Lofton, Sterling Sharpe, then Jordy. If Javon Walker would have stayed healthy and stopped whining about his contract he would have been top five but since he didnt and could not, the top five is rounded out by Greg Jennings, and Davante with Davante moving up the list.

Floridarob, I think you have it right.  Like you, never saw Hutson play, saw all the others, Hutson still #1.  I think those who never saw saw Lofton may not realize how incredible he was -- truly elite height, hands, speed and smarts.  Sharpe was a beast.  Both should have been Packers much longer than they were.  You watch these replays of Jordy and are reminded just how much he contributed over the years.  What a great player:  https://www.packers.com/video/...he-green-bay-packers

When comparing current vs past WRs, we also have to keep in mind rules then vs now. 

Then, corners and safeties could play, you know, defense. They could drill WRs, play real bump and run, and grab. 

Now? Imagine a 21 year old version of Sharpe playing now. With all the rules slanted toward the offense. 

Holy shit...

Antonio Brown posted 5 strait seasons with 1200 plus receiving yards, 

Sharpe could have done that with one hand tied behind his back.

Good one.  I would have to go Hutson, Lofton, Sharpe, Driver, and Jordy

I think in today's NFL Lofton and Sharpe would go freaking nuts and I can't even imagine how good their stats would be.  Can you even imagine Rodgers throwing to those two?

It's hard for me to conclude Lofton was definitely better than Sharpe or Sharpe was definitely better than Lofton.

I have to give them a tie!

Lofton was awesome, but Sharpe found a way to get so many receptions even though it seemed he was all the offense had.  I don't know how he managed to do that!

He is an enormous City fan. He only watches soccer and golf. No other sports. "Sports"? Fortunately, City lost yesterday to Tottenham. Sorry, CHONGO.

Meh...you give up that many goals, you deserve to lose. I'm over it. Win the PL, and all is forgiven.

They also played in completely different eras in terms of what a DB could do to a WR. Same with Sharpe and current players.
