While I do not think backup QB makes a team better (if AR goes down the Pack is toast with any backup)  I do have to wonder what this or any team sees in Kizer.  

There has to be someone better in a nation of 350 million people.

A team that has a strong running game and wants a running QB would be more interested.  But I think BAL is already set.  Maybe he can back up Hundley in ARZ.

This all goes back to him becoming vegan. Who ever heard of a vegan in Wisconsin? Isn't that outlined in the first line of the Wisconsin state constitution? "We the people of Wisconsin, in order to form a more perfect union, do hereby establish this constitution for the state of Wisconsin to denounce veganism, margarine, and ya know establish government stuff too." 

Lots of stupid young women. They all get religion...eventually.

To be fair to Fackrell, a lot of sack stats are skewed by games where they feast on bad OL. Aaron Donald had 4 sacks against SF and 3 against ARI in 2018. Not that I'm equating the two or diminishing Aaron Donald's production, I think Donald had an outrageous season.  In CM3's best statistical season almost half of his production came in 2 games where he faced Winston Justice and Demetris Bell, is that any more impressive than Fackrell dominating SEA and BUF? It's a slippery slope when you start getting hypercritical about how impressive 10.5 sacks really  is. 

Sacks are great and all but how about what he does the rest of the time?  I'd like to see some consistently unsexy plays.

History says Davis won't last the season.  He took one real hit this year in TC and took a 2 week vacation - maybe it was less.  But still he can't take a hit.  He could figure the injury thing out and be all pro somewhere else.  So far in GB, MVS, EQ, Shepherd, and Lazard haven't shown those tendencies.  Allison has had some injury issues and Kumerow hopefully has learned his lesson about showboating.  I think Davis is showing to little to late.  There were other years he was supposed to be ready too.  We all know how that turned out.  I would move on.  

The preseason games are stupid.   Not only are you risking injury but most players aren’t giving their full effort.

I mean, it’s great if your 5th WR or 3rd TE gets featured but damn you really have to love your NFL team to watch that.  

At some point they should just get rid of preseason games or reduce them from 4 to 2.  Expand rosters and add a couple of regular season games.

I read that 2 (3?) and adding a playoff game was being discussed.

I think the pre-season games are a necessary evil.  I don't like em, but we have to have them for evaluation of the younger players.  I was listening to sirius xm yesterday, they brought up a fun fact:  remember it 'used' to be called exhibition, then they needed to make money offf of the exhibition, so it magically became pre-season...so at the end of it, ya, its $$

I also think that preseason games are a necessary evil to evaluate young players but I also think that four games is useless.  I think there will be a real movement to go down to two preseason games but at the same time the owners are going to not want to give up any revenue at all.  So if they cut down to 2 preseason games I think they will go to a 18 game regular season.

I don't think players will ever agree to 18.

Not unless they get a bigger cut of the money pile, and I don't see the owners giving that up anytime in the future... Can't say as I'd blame the players for wanting more money if they are putting their bodies and careers on the line. And I don't see coaches/fans/owners wanting guys to sit for two games to equal it out to 16 games. It would come down to not using guys at the end just like the NBA does now and that's a problem.
