Hey, its a pass first league right. Thats why the PUKERS went out and spent 2 picks on RB's this year. By the way, Bakhtiari is one hell of a run blocker. Some of the tape I watch on that guy "Sealing" the end was damn impressive.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Meanwhile on the passing side they gave their QB 130million extension.

The only one of his picks who's made a lasting impact on their offense, even without Manning, is Reggie Wayne.

being a 'small market' hasn't affected teams ability to pay people since the 80's. Packers, while in one of the smallest towns in the NFL, have the same money as everyone else, and make considerably more money than alot of teams. They have NO issue whatsoever selling out their 70K seat stadium on a regular basis. They have a more consistent following than most teams in the league except perhaps the Steelers, Pats and Cowboys.
And no, mid-round picks aren't a 'huge' investment when it comes to RBs. Toby in the 2nd was a 'huge' investment. AP was a massive investment. A 4th round pick isn't huge. It's a cheap option, who can probably contribute. They were smart to do that over reaching early or overpaying a vet. They'll probably get the same result. By going cheap, it allows them to pay Matthews and Rodgers this year.

Greenbay is not, nor has it ever been considered a "Large Market" by anyone that I've ever discussed this with, well, other than you......
It'd be sad to see several small-market teams leave - NFL.comMany many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
