Packers’ 2014 Draft Class Paying Early Dividends

hhcd21

As I sat in the Lambeau Field bleachers and watched the Panthers game, I couldn’t help but to think of how well the 2014 draft class is panning out.  Now there are certainly disappointments.  It’s possible (maybe even likely) that Khyri Thornton Carl Bradford and Demetri Goodson can’t play.  Jared Abbrederis was lost for the season with an ACL injury.  Other than that though, things look great.

I know that kind of sounds like “other than that, Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?” but it isn’t.  It’s possible that one of those 3 defenders will turn into a decent rotational piece.  Josh Boyd looked just as lost as Thornton early on in his career and he’s a perfectly capable fill-in on the defensive line.  Obviously if you take a defensive linemen in the top 100 you’d prefer he not be a fill-in but it happens.  Goodson was always going to be a project and Bradford is going through a position change a la Jamari Lattimore.

This much I do know.  The Packers have found 3 rock solid starters, possibly a 4th starter and another player that will contribute in a positive way.  I don’t care how many draft picks you have, if you come away with a haul like that it was a success.  The fact that Green Bay didn’t have drafts with that success rate in 2011 and 2012 largely attributes to the lack of playoff success after the 15-1 season.

Your Voices Are Heard Loud and Clear Packers Fans

packer fans

If there is one thing that I understand fairly well, it is Green Bay Packers fans.

Being one myself, it is easy to feel what you feel, say what you say, and think what you think with regards to the team we pour our hearts and souls into. Day after day, week after week, year after year, the green and gold pumps through our veins. It is who we are.

When the Packers win, we celebrate in unison. When they lose, we collectively slam our heads against the wall trying to figure out what went wrong. I am one of you, and have a full understanding of the highs and lows that are associated with being a Packers fan.

We all felt the same after the debacle against the Seahawks this past Thursday to kickoff the 2014 season.

A blowout loss on national television against the defending Super Bowl champions to start the season. Not exactly the way the Packers wanted to come out of the gate.

After the game, your voices were heard. Loud and clear.

Yet another loss to an NFC West team. More proof that other teams have passed by the Packers. The Packers can’t beat good teams. All of these and more are some of the edited versions of comments that were being mentioned all over Twitter and Facebook after the game.

I should know. I was right there with you.
