    Okay quick summary of Green Bay's off-season. Ted Thompson steps down as GM. He's now a senior advisor.

    In steps Brian Gutekunst whose 1st notable move is purging fan favorite and GB legend Jordy Nelson. He also trades for Duh shone Kizer. He also added Jimmy Graham at TE and Wilkerson along DL which likely send Lowry to bench..

    Multiple boneheaded moves has put him on mine and others "blacklist". His draft was about as caste as you can get it an OL, Punter, and a LS. 3 out of 11.. Media pundits give The Packers an A. I'd say a grade of a C is more appropriate. The Undrafted Free Agent signings were slightly better though.


    QB Aaron Rodgers, Tim Boyle (EKU), and Nick Stevens(CSU) brought in as UDFA.

    *Unfortunately Black Brett and Duhshone are likely number 2 and 3 QBs, so Boyle and Stevens are likely battling for a practice squad spot. Good news either Kizer or Hundley will be cut. If I had my way they'd both be long gone.

    RB/FB Aaron Ripkowski, Joe Kerridge

    TE Robert Tonyan

    * Kyle Rader Youngstown St., and Ryan Smith Miami OH as UDFAs.

    WR Jake Kumerow, Colby Pearson

    OL Dillon Day, Lucas Patrick , Corey Linsley, Bryan Bulaga, David Bakhtiari, Kyle Murphy, Jason Spriggs, Cole Madison

    *RG spot is up for grabs! Murphy,Spriggs, Madison duking it out with a Sumo.

    UDFA: Arizona's Jacob Alsadek, Duke's Austin Davis, Richmond's Alex Light

    DL Dean Lowry

    * UDFA: Solid pickup in Northwestern's Tyler Lancaster! 6'3 310 4.9 40, 39 bench reps. Possible Nose Tackle/DE Athletic and versatile enough to play either in 3-4.

    Cal Poly's Caleb Melton is undersized DT at 6'3 265 was backup in college. But workout warrior. 4.8 40 34 bench reps. He'll likely slide DE or possibly Edge.

    Wisconsin DL Conor Sheehy is another versatile DL prospect. Played NT and DE in a similar system in college. 6'4 295 5.13 40 22reps

    LB Jake Ryan, Blake Martinez, Clay Matthews, Vince Biegel , Kyler Fackrell,

    * Greer Martini(Notre Dame) and Derek McCartney(Colorado) to tryout

    CB none

    S none

    *Joe Ferguson of Wisconsin to tryout

    Special Teams K Mason Crosby
    , LS Zach Triner, LS Hunter Bradley, and JK Scott

    *GB just cut Justin Vogel, they'll go with Scott, the Alabama Rookie .


    * GB looks to start 9 whites in 2018!

    Player to watch: Blake Martinez. Talented young LB racked up 150tkls last season Emerging Star!

    Nice write up! The Packers were the CF NFC favorite for nearly a decade but I think we can all agree that The Vikings supplanted them for that honor last year and will hold onto that mantle. As you show, there is still a lot to like here. On the defensive side, they still have the Whitest line backing unit in the NFL. Unfortunately, they are now devoid of any of our guys at offensive skill positions. Just a generic NFL offense lead by an aging SJW QB who’s another injury away from forcing an incompetent quotaback into the starting role.

    Also, with this new cuck GM and the general direction the franchise has been spiraling down into since their Championship, we can expect a darkening team every year going forward.

    Most teams with an all-black or close to draft will get a high grade from the media. It's because of the boundless upside that the melanin-enhanced exhibit. It's the same with college recruiting and the "star ratings". By recruiting players with high "ratings" assigned to them by the services, the coaching staff gets a strong grade for their recruits, which makes the DWFs, alumni and administration happy. It also is a bonus-clause trigger for many coaches. Needless to say, the scouting services are the most racist organizations on the planet, with very few palefaces getting high marks. Why would a coaching staff go and hunt for outstanding overlooked white talent if all it is going to get them is a low grade and losing financial compensation?

    After all, you can recruit and give schollys to 5 black RB's and if they don't pan out, nobody even notices. But give a scholly to a white RB and it doesn't work out, there is hell to pay.

    The Packers waived QB Joe Callahan and it looks as if he will be signed by the Eagles.

    Could Callahan really have been worse than Hundley or Kizer, both of who played badly last year?

    No. They both suck. I firmly believe Callahan should have took over the reins after game 2 of the Black Brett experiment and failure . Best of luck to Callahan in Philly, he's an east coast native.

    Good-bye Jordy, welcome "beloved" Equanimeous, Marquez and J'Mon:

    Packers signed sixth-round WR Equanimeous St. Brown to a four-year contract. Beloved by the fantasy community more than the NFL, the Packers alone selected two receivers ahead of St. Brown in the draft, suggesting he will begin his career in something of a hole. He has the talent to make some noise in camp, however, especially if he more consistently plays to his size. He is a mid-round prospect in Dynasty rookie drafts.

    Packers signed fifth-round WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling to a four-year contract. The second of three receivers the Packers selected on the third day of the draft, Valdes-Scantling is a big (6’4/206) receiver with 4.37 wheels, but he did not show much on tape to suggest he is anything more than a deep threat. He will compete with fellow draftees J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown for the No. 3 job.

    Packers signed fourth-round WR J'Mon Moore to a four-year contract. Fifth-round OG Cole Madison, seventh-round DT James Looney, and seventh-round LB Kendall Donnerson also signed their rookie deals. The first of three receivers the Packers drafted on Day 3, Moore is the early favorite to take on the No. 3 receiver role following the departure of Jordy Nelson.

    :roto2lol: trio of upsiders with diverse names!

    GB media already making up excuses for Moore. Claiming he "plays faster than his 4.6 combine 40 indicates.." Moore also has history of drops in college. Don't worry though they're just "concentration drops." Amazing how affletes are given benefit of doubt. He's considered favorite for Number 3 job..

    Scantling. Is unpolished route runner and had Seven drops last season. Even draft media was surprised by this reach.

    Equianemous has the honor of most hoodrat name in this year's class. No doubt he's a great athlete but I question his limited route running tree though I will say he played with 2 absolutely horribly quotabacks throwing him the Ball at Notre Dame.

    Packers go cheap and pay these 3 upsiders a combined 2 mil, instead of bringing back established Star Jordy for another year or 2. IMO a move that will come back to haunt them.

    The Packers could have drafted Justin Watson instead of Moore, Dylan Cantrell instead of Scantling and Trey Quinn instead of St. Brown. Watson, Cantrell and Quinn are all superior to Moore, Scantling and St. Brown.

    The Packers could have been set at receiver for years. You could play Cantrell at split end, Quinn in the slot and Watson at flanker. You would have a complete receiver corps.

    But the Packers are too dumb. And too racist.

    Yup Ryan blew out his knee. Pack down a white starter...Likely Rookie Oren Burks gets the nod now. DWFs rejoice.

    Plus side it's looking as if UDFA Greer Martini will make the 53 man roster. He was running with 2nd string defense and a starter on a couple special teams units already.

    I've also heard very positive reports on Kumerow at wideout. Won't hold my breath though.

    The team that wouldn't put Jeff Janis on the field finds room for slow upsiders.

    This article, without mentioning race, gives the (Caste System) basics of how Jake Kumerow is likely to be cut despite being the team's best receiver so far. The receivers he is beating somehow remain more "athletic" than Jake, and since they were drafted and have upside and Jake has neither, he's likely to be the odd man out, again. Black receivers get drafted while White receivers with just as much talent and often more, don't, so the 70% black template is set by the racial numbers of the yearly draft, which never deviate by more than the slightest bit.

    The Packers’ race for WR jobs won’t just be based on who is best in training camp

    Roster building means taking into account more than just one season, and that may mean keeping players who were outperformed.

    A typical caste driven broadside with every hallmark device put into play. Reminds me of the hit piece put out on S Daniel Sorensen last season where he was wrongfully used as a scapegoat. Never mind he was one of KC's better defenders last season which was brought home by the fact Sorensen was practically the only KC defender to have played well in their playoff game.

    These intermediate "beat writers and internet analysts" are often the main caste culprits creating and causing unwarranted fan negativity towards white skill players.

    Case in point the article above. Tellingly the author doesn't mention that the true purpose of sporting events is to win the game. He is more interested in the mystical arts surrounding the untapped potential of black wide receivers. And using that old caste trick by repeating Kumerow's so called "deficiencies" over and over again throughout the piece by the time you are done a person might be convinced that Kumerow has leprosy.

    Wow, two long pre-season TD catches for Kumerow. He’s also accumulated 190 yards on only 6 catches! That’s 32 YPC.

    Maybe he’ll end up being the 4th option behind Adams, Cobb, and Allison. Trevor Davis is more of a kick/punt returner, so it’s unlikely he’ll take reps from Kumerow.

    The Green Bay media seems to think highly of Geronimo Allison. They project him as the Packers' number 3 receiver even though he's never done much during a regular season.

    Kumerow is clearly better than Allison as was Jeff Janis. If the Packers play Allison over Kumerow it would be another example of black privilege and anti-white discrimination in the NFL. It would be business as usual.

    Great work by celticdb15 / Bucky on the original write-up but I figured I'd give the thread a bump with the final rosters (it's gotten much worse):

    QB - Aaron Rodgers, Tim Boyle
    FB - none
    WR - none
    TE - Robert Tonyan Jr
    OL - David Bakhtiari, Corey Linsley, Bryan Bulaga, Jason Spriggs, Lucas Patrick, Alex Light
    DL - Dean Lowry
    LB - Blake Martinez, Clay Matthews Jr, Kyler Fackrell
    DB - none
    Special teams - P J.K. Scott, K Mason Crosby, LS Hunter Bradley

    G Cole Madison is on the "did not report" list, whatever that means. WR Jake Kumerow, T Kyle Murphy and LB Jake Ryan are all on the injured reserve list.

    C Austin Davis, FB Joe Kerridge, DL Tyler Lancaster and LB Greer Martini are on the practice squad.

    White starters: 6 (-4 from 2017)
    White players on the roster: 16 (-2 from 2017)
    Grade: D- (could improve if Kumerow comes back and they call up a practice squad guy or 2)

    Thanks for the bump Freethinker!

    Really sucks having Kumerow on IR..

    Few positives: Tonyan and Boyle making the team, along with UDFA T Alex Bright.

    I'm predicting Lucas Patrick takes over RG at some point this season. Sumo McCray is already getting exposed week1.

    Weird situation with G Cole Madison never made it to GB and never reported for camp dealing with a "personal issue."
