    This QB draft is going to be a lot like that.

    The draft can be really fun and I enjoy the spectacle of it, but there is way too much instant opinion right after the draft on who did a good job and who did bad job on players who haven't played one snap. Got a full dose of that this year when the Packers didn't take a WR. People are still doing articles about it after Rodgers threw 900 tds this year.

    Yeah, probably should have picked Allen or Jackson, but I still like Mayfield. One bad season last year, but I think he has been pretty good besides that. Was actually a pretty good QB draft when you look at it. I still think Darnold has some talent, would like to see him not on the Jets. As far as the other Browns picks, Ward and Chubb were also good picks.

    Packers have kept some guys like Elliot Wolf and Brian Gutekunst by giving them more money, but if a GM spot is available its hard to keep those guys.

    Smart to keep people. After the Packers won the Super Bowl back in 2010 a lot of guys left and it created a brain drain. I think its why the Packers had some bad drafts for a few years.

    John Dorsey in three years at KC drafted Mahomes, Kelce and Hill. Three probable HOF players. He then went to the Browns and drafted Mayfield and is responsible for most of the players on the team that is about to be in the playoffs for the first time in almost 20 years. Not to mention the two super bowls he helped win in GB. Like maybe teams are overthinking this.

    I would bet it's some of the stuff you talked about Rodgers, teams think he is the only reason they are good. I also think it's because they aren't flashy. They generally believe in drafting 10 players every year and sign a limited amount of free agents. Draft and develop. Not a lot of flashy trades. Pace got a lot of attention for trading for Mack and he has been good for the Bears, but they had to mortgage a lot of their future to get him. Packers signed Z. Smith, who has been better and didn't cost them any draft picks. It's not just the Packers, Ravens are another team that I would hire from. Also, like who knows what teams like the Jags, Texans and Panthers are doing. Maybe these teams should consider to hire from one of the most consistent teams over the past 30 years, but bad teams stay bad.

    It's almost like you would want to hire from the team that drafted the best QB in NFL history in the late first round. Take away a teams starting QB and they don't make the playoffs is probably every team in the NFL. Patrick Mahomes is probably going to break every passing record that ever existed, I wonder who drafted him and their backgrounds? I mean I don't care if bad teams stay bad, but It is just a little surprising. I'm sure KC and Seattle would agree.

    Drafting the best CB in football, drafting a top 5 guard in the second round, signing one of the best pass rushers in the game for what is now a pretty light contract, having the best safety combo in the league, both of who they signed and drafted, signed an undrafted TE who had 11 td this year. 7 pro bowlers (I know its the pro bowl, but still a high number and will have a bunch of All pros), heavy favorite to have the MVP and COY. Rodgers is having a historic season, but to say he is the only good Packers player or is the only reason they are good is something out of 2015-2016.

    I'm surprised no one is looking at front office people from the Packers. Back to back 13-3 seasons, finally started signing free agents and have completely nailed almost of all of them, really good work in the drafts and with undrafted players.

    I think Mitch has been great. About time they gave him a long term deal. Get it done, Pace!

    Wonder if all these injuries has anything to do with lack of preseason or just a bad week in the NFL. Feel like the product on the field has been good enough to cut preseason in half. Couple of games for undrafted rookies and rookies with almost no vets playing at all.

    I keep looking out my window every time they show that rain. Feel like I'm going crazy.
