Carroll Dale was drafted in 1960 in the eighth round of the NFL draft. Unfortunately, it was not to the Green Bay Packers. Carol played the first five years of his NFL career with the Los Angeles Rams. Those first five years were rough for Dale. The Rams were a mediocre team at best and he didn’t experience many wins. In fact he only scored seven touchdowns in that first five years.

After five years of mediocrity the Rams traded Dale to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for a linebacker. It was the best move for Dale’s career.  Continue reading

Is signing Cobb really worth it?

Hlh4q.Em.138Let me start by saying I am like the rest of Packer nation in that I would like to see Randall Cobb get signed to a long term contract.

Now lets be realistic about this. Randall has stated he wants 9 million a year which he is well worth.
His play on the field has been fantastic to say the least, he is a favorite target for Rodgers in clutch situations and more often than not, exceeds expectations after the catch. But if Thompson pays him the 9 million that he wants and also pays Bulaga how much does that leave for other free agents that are key players to the team? Kuhn is a fan favorite and is key in blocking for Lacy and picking up blocks to help Rodgers stay upright in the passing game so who wants to see him leave? Richardson has been a solid player in the secondary so losing him could be a down grade to our defense so do we really want that to happen? Bush and Williams are both getting old so maybe we could move on from them but what about House? He has proved he can cover big receivers like Marshall and Johnson and with more playing time he could be a asset to our defensive backfield! Continue reading
