I don't understand why he's black listed in this league.

Is Vince a more mobile QB than Rodgers?

Just curious about this signing. Is it only because their back-ups sucked, or more?

I dont know much about VY, other than there were issues w Titans w Fisher.

Honestly, I never understood why we didn't give him a shot here before Russell Wilson hit town and established himself as Russell Wilson, Quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks.

Probably something to do with his attitude that I'm not privy to. Or maybe they're just not a huge fan.

Phrasing.

Also, he doesn't get a lot of attention because he's a total headcase. Very skilled, but that's not enough anymore. Not when you can draft a rookie and start them from day one without all the hassle of dealing with VY's antics.

Well, with them losing the only good O-lineman on their team, they're expecting Rodgers to have his funeral with friends and family between weeks 6 and 8, so they need someone that can start running at the beginning of each snap to have a chance at not going 2-14 this year after Rodgers is dead.

I feel like this is a move that will leave Vince as a third stringer, but also leave the Pack with a big Kaepernick stand in for practice leading up to week one.

I was going to say that I always knew that VY would be back, and that when the day came, it would be a decision made by a GM driven franchise. But what you said sounds a lot smarter, so I'm going with that.

yeah but no one knows what those headcases were or WHY they actually happened. I think the dude had a poor teacher, and unfortunately didnt get along with a well respected coach. I think all he ever needed was a change. And wrongfully he was blacklisted. I think hes going to be starting somewhere next year.

The Pack also had Randall Cobb go down today. It's been a brutal training camp for that team so far.

Yeah, I've given up all hope at the 49ers losing in week one with the news about Cobb.

@49ers fans around here: You guys have absolutely no excuse not to manhandle the Packers. If you still win the game and it's even close, I will ridicule you. If you lose, I'd avoid this forum for a few days. :D

Didn't think about that but it really is as good as reason as any. Not that they had a chance even at full health. Wilth that OL hit and Cobb just forget about it.

I'm actually kinda worried about that game. Not for any reason involving talent or scheme (tho I still think Rodgers is the best QB in the NFL). I just know that team has a HUGE target on the 49ers back after being embarassed twice last year.

The Pack will be jacked up and ready for that game and motivated for revenge.

I am keeping an eye on a lot of injuries across the league, mostly for fantasy implications.
Rogers and Cobb both just dropped big time.

Doesn't matter, Rodgers will already be sacked by the time Cobb even gets jammed at the line.

The one team beyond Arizona and Chicago that doesn't need OL injuries is Green Bay and they lose their Center for the season? That isn't good no matter know it's sliced. Ask Dallas how it is with a bad center, the quarterback gets miiddle push and it messes up the run game.

I'm telling you, losing Bulaga isn't going to be that devastating, he wasn't even THAT good.

I thought the OL who got hurt was their LT? Anyways, Cobb is not that serious yet but Jordy Nelson is dinged up too. Yikes...With Jennings gone, the only healthy one left is James Jones, who was a TD magnet last season.
I already had Brees as my top QB for my draft anyways. I predict he has an epic season(from a fantasy perspective).
Sorry for hijacking the thread. lol.

I know he wasn't good, but he was mediocre on a mediocre O-line last year, dude. That's why it's an important loss for them. Here, check out the overall grade for each of their offensive linemen per Pro Football Focus for 2012:

Bryan Bulaga, LT: -2.8
Josh Sitton, LG: 20.8
Evan Dietrich-Smith, C: -0.5
T.J. Lang, RG: 0.9
Marshall Newhouse, RT: -2.3

They had one good (actually 20.8 qualifies as a great year) O-lineman last year, the rest were a little under mediocre, basically. Left tackle faces the toughest competition, so yeah, it's gonna matter, dude; unless they've got someone who can perform at an average level to replace him.

Bulaga's PFF score is basically the same as Newhouse's. If it was Newhouse hitting IR, would anyone care?

No one would care. Bulaga is a more known name just because people thought he might end up a Hawk and got a lot of first round eyeball. He was just as abused as anyone in the 8 sacks at the C-link. I was boggled taht they moved him to LT, but they don't have the cash for a Jake Long and didn't have the draft position for one of those top tackles in the draft.

Ted Thompson is starting to get a first round flop reputation.

incorrect, his antics are well documented. My brother was on the team when all that went down. The guy is a basket case.
